TopBox: LOULOU Spring Beauty Booster Only $33 ($100 Value) & Free Shipping

TopBox: LOULOU Spring Beauty Booster Only $33 ($100 Value) & Free Shipping

TopBox Canada is full of great new beauty boxes! I picked out the LOULOU Spring Beauty Booster as it has a retail value of $100 but only costs $33 with free shipping.

This box is loaded full of goodies worth approximately $100. Included in the box is:

  • B.Kamins Bio Maple Lotion (7g)
  • Ceramic Glaze Mermaid’s Tale (14 mL)
  • Ceramic Glaze Shell Me All About It (14 mL)
  • Estée Lauder Little Black Primer (2.8 mL)
  • eyeko hydrogel Eye Patch (3 g)
  • Kiehl’s Hydro Plumping (5 mL)
  • Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream (1.2 mL)
  • Medusa Assorted Lip Gloss (6 mL)
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat (14 mL)
  • TheBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Bronzer (0.57 g)
  • Wella Professional Thermal Image (150 mL)

In my research, I found that the Wella Professional Thermal Image alone retails for around $19.95 and up to $22 at the places (In the US) I was looking. Ceramic Glaze nail polish retails for $11 per bottle at Shoppers Mart – and you receive two full size bottles. Even between these three items, your total value is over $40 already – and that is just three out of eleven products.

Along with the eleven products, you will also receive a four-month LOULOU physical magazine subscription or an eight-month digital subscription. The value of the subscription adds on a few dollars as well.

This is a great little bundle full of summer essentials. Mascara, lotion, nail polish, and bronzer are just a few of the items included.

Now, there are some other great boxes as well. There are a couple boxes for just $9 each that are well worth the cost. The FLARE Fearless Beauty Box and the FLARE Classic Beauty Box are well worth the under $10 price with free shipping. Each box comes with a coupon code for hair colour that has a retail value of up to $16. If you use the voucher code, you are already saving money and getting pretty much everything else for free. Each box includes two to three full sized products as well as some travel-sized products. I would estimate each box is worth at least $30 before you redeem the ‘up to $16 worth’ voucher.

These beauty boxes make a great gift for you or for friends. They are an excellent way to try out new products without always buying the full sized containers. Recently I tried a hair oil sample that I just loved, and it made me buy a full size bottle!

Burt’s Bees: Spring into Beauty Grab Bag Only $25 ($75 Value)

Posted by on April 2, 2015 at 6:30 PM

Burts Bees: Spring into Beauty Grab Bag Only $25 ($75 Value)

Burt’s Bees Canada has the most darling little Spring into Beauty Grab Bag on sale from $75 down to $25. You receive $75 worth of famous Burt’s Bees products that you are going to love.

This grab bag is loaded with amazing personal care products and cosmetics. In the grab bag you will find six full-sized products and a mini body lotion. The contents include:

  • Naturally Nourishing Milk & Shea Butter Body Wash – 350mL
  • Cranberry & Pomegranate Replenishing Body Bar – 140g
  • Ultimate Care Body Lotion – 170g
  • Brightening Even Skin Tone Moisturising Cream – 51g
  • Honey Bee Favourites – Pomegranate
  • Pomegranate Moisturizing Lip Balm – 4.25g
  • Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion – 25g (mini)
  • Lip Gloss  Fall Foliage – 6mL

As you can see, this is a huge quantity of body care products for just $25. I think my favourites are the Naturally Nourishing Milk & Shea Butter body wash and the Ultimate Care Body Lotion. Milk and Shea butter is amazing for your skin so I bet this wash would leave my skin buttery soft and clean. This body butter retails for $9.99 but you can buy it on sale for $5.99 (separately) right now. One reviewer said:

Really great stuff here. Just like a lot of their other stuff, this is nice and moisturizing, yet light at the same time. It has a nice clean smell to it, that’s not too overpowering at all. It also lathers really well considering that it’s sulfate free, just make sure to use a loofa.

The Ultimate Care lotion features Baobab Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, and Green Tea Extract to pamper dry skin and leave you feeling nourished. Just a bottle of the lotion alone would cost you $14.99 separately.

Now, Burt’s Bees offers free shipping on orders of $49 so I suggest buying two of these kits and giving one to your sister, boyfriend, mother or other relative next time an occasion arrives. I will mention that the Burt’s Bees outlet has been restocked with other great deals as well. For example, this Energizing Peppermint Kit was $19.99 and is now $11.99. However, the Spring into Beauty Grab Bag is the best deal out of all the sale items so I wanted to feature it.

Clinique Canada: Make-Up From $14 With Free Shipping, Free 20 Day Supply of Custom Repair Serum & Free Mini Samples Too! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 7, 2015 at 10:38 AM

FREE seems to be the word of choice in my title there! This weekend at Clinique Canada, they’ve got a couple of deals on the go, which when paired together can make for an interesting bargain.

Deal Number One

Firstly, Clinique has released a coupon code for a free 20 day sample of their Custom Repair Serum, which you can use on any purchase with no minimum spend required.

  • Coupon Code: TRYSMART
  • Discount: Free sample
  • Expires: Unknown

The Custom Repair Serum is usually $175 for a $100ml bottle!!! The above free gift with purchase gives you a free 20 day sample, but it doesn’t state the exact quantity of serum in the freebie, so I cannot work out an exact value for you on this one. Even if the free sample is only 10ml, that’s still a value of $17.50. All of the reviews on Clinique’s site are glowing, regarding this product.

Deal Number Two (Ends 7th March 2015)

Secondly, buy any make-up on the Clinique.ca site and your order will qualify for totally free shipping. You would normally have to spend $50 to get free shipping on any order, so this reduces that threshold. The make-up prices start at $14 for the likes of this A Different Nail Enamel For Sensitive Skins. Popping that in your cart makes the shipping cost zero.

Deal Number Three

Every single order on Clinique.ca qualifies for a free gift with purchase. Here is the choice of free samples from Clinique.

Clinique Canada: Make Up From $14 With Free Shipping, Free 20 Day Supply of Custom Repair Serum & Free Mini Samples Too! (EXPIRED)

I like the look of the Different Lipstick in A Different Grape Mini. That looks really handy to pop in a purse.

And here’s a screenshot of my shopping cart with the above promos applied:

Clinique Canada: Make Up From $14 With Free Shipping, Free 20 Day Supply of Custom Repair Serum & Free Mini Samples Too! (EXPIRED)

We don’t know when two of these offers are due to expire – the free Custom Repair Serum and the additional freebies in your cart (though the latter could be ongoing). So, if Clinique is a brand that you are interested in, today would be a good day to purchase.

Wagjag: 6-pk Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($52 Value) – Just $19

Posted by on March 1, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Wagjag: 6 pk Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($52 Value)    Just $19

Ladies, do you ever leave the house without mascara? I sure don’t and since I go through tubes like there is no tomorrow, here’s a lovely deal I found at WagJag: right now, you can get a pack of 6 Maybelline Great Lash mascaras for just $19, which comes down to just $3.17 per tube! You can choose between very black or brownish black.

I have a real issue with mascara. I tend to apply it, apply it and then apply it some more, all the while getting it all over my eyelids. I’m sure it’s not necessary at all to do it this much but to me it feels like, the more I put on, the longer they get, but the problem with this method is that I go through a lot more tubes than I should.

In any case, did you know that you should get rid of your mascara every three months anyways because of the accumulation of bacteria? Seeing as to how each tube of mascara usually retails for upwards of $6, sometimes even $10 depending on the brand you get, this WagJag deal is definitely well worth redeeming.

In fact, our very own Anna had this to say about this mascara:

I’ve used many types of mascara over the years and in my memory, one of the best performers was the Maybelline Great Lash. I haven’t actually used it in a few years, as I have been gifted other brands for birthdays and Christmases. But from what I recall, it was a really great consistency, and it never clumped up on the brush or on the eyelashes. It was easy to apply, looked great, and easy to remove too. I personally recommend this mascara!

Oddly enough, certain other HealthSnap offers on WagJag, like the 4 Essie nail polish for $19 deal that Eva wrote about recently, also come with a processing fee but this one shouldn’t, especially since the fine print specifies the following: “tax and processing fee charged on merchant’s website“.

At Walmart, the Maybelline Great Lash mascara is currently on rollback for either $3.56 or $4.96 depending on the shade of black that you get. That’s still more expensive than WagJag’s deal and for all you brown lovers out there, the brown is completely sold out, whereas it’s available at WagJag.

Shipping is free but if you want to get your order quicker, you can choose to pick it up at select Health Snap stores instead.

Trade Secrets: Buy 3 Get 1 Free China Glaze & Valentine’s Sale & Free Shipping

Posted by on February 8, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Trade Secrets: Buy 3 Get 1 Free China Glaze & Valentines Sale & Free Shipping

Trade Secrets sells everything you would ever need for your nails. Right now, they have a special deal on the brand China Glaze. When you purchase three China Glaze polishes, you will receive the fourth for free. You will also receive free shipping with no minimum.

All China Glaze bottles of nail polish cost $9.95 each. All you need to do is find some amazing colours you cannot live without. Add four polishes to your cart and then only pay for three of them. I picked out:

I love funky colours so the gorgeous black, neon green, seductive purple, and shocking blue all fit my personality.

In my cart, the third nail polish came off so my total was $29.85 with free shipping. Now, this offer does ‘stack’ in that if you buy six bottles of nail polish you will receive two free and if you buy nine you will receive three free. The free bottles of nail polish will be automatically discounted in your cart.

Now, there is also a Valentine’s Day Sale on right now with 20% off select items and free shipping. The sale is on cosmetics and includes brands like Ardell, Body Drench, Deca, and more. The sale shows the current sale price, but does not show the original price. I had to add items to my cart to see the discount there. This Body Drench Mango Moisturizing Lip Balm is on sale for $4.95. Once I add it to my cart, I see that I am saving 99 cents off the original price.

I never knew that OPI made anything besides polish, but in the sale, I found an OPI Avojuice 5 Mini Assorted Scent Pack on sale for $9.95. You are saving $1.99 of the original price. The set includes five 30 ml containers of lotion in the following scents: Ginger Lily, Sweet Tea, Cran & Berry, Mango, and Hibiscus juices.

Trade Secrets: Buy 3 Get 1 Free China Glaze & Valentines Sale & Free Shipping

Both these promotions can be in the same cart and you will see the discounts calculated separately (as shown above). I thought this was a very cool feature of the Trade Secrets cart.

The Valentine’s Day sale will end on Valentine’s Day, but I do not know when the buy three, get one free promotion for China Glaze will expire. If you see this promotion over, please comment to let us know.

Save 50% On The Colour Workshop 15 Piece Cosmetic Brush Set Now $7 @ Walmart.ca

Posted by on January 3, 2015 at 12:18 PM

Save 50% On The Colour Workshop 15 Piece Cosmetic Brush Set Now $7 @ Walmart.ca

Are you in need of a new makeup brush set? Shop at Walmart.ca and you can save 50% off The Colour Workshop 15 Piece Cosmetic Brush Set, which means you will pay just $7. Walmart Canada offers free shipping on all orders too.

The Colour Workshop 15 Piece Cosmetic Brush Set from Walmart comes with 15 different pieces. There are multiple brushes as well as a pouch to keep all of the brushes in. That would essentially mean that you are paying less than $0.50 per item in this kit. I am not too familiar with the Walmart brand makeup brushes. At the original price of $14, I would not have purchased these. However, at $7, I would give these brushes a shot.

The items you will find included in this The Colour Workshop 15 Piece Cosmetic Brush Set are:

  • Pencil Sharpener
  • Mirror
  • 4 Piece Applicator Set
  • Pouch
  • Bottle
  • Brow Comb
  • Applicator
  • Eyeliner Brush
  • Lip Brush
  • Angled Shadow Brush
  • Shadow Brush
  • Contour Brush
  • Blush Brush
  • Powder Brush
  • Long Powder Brush

I threw one of these makeup sets in my cart. I have a niece who is turning 14 in just under a month, this set would make an excellent first makeup brush kit for someone learning how to apply makeup. Once she gets the hang of things she can move up to a higher quality brand, or perhaps she will like these ones.

Personally I am not big enough on makeup to go out and spend a large sum on brushes and applicators. A set like this would be perfect for me. The only thing I would be worried about is the brush bristles falling out, or the sponge applicator falling off while applying your makeup. I have experienced that with dollar store quality makeup brush sets.

If you are looking for a bigger set including actual makeup, The Colour Workshop Luminous Beauty Train Case is also on sale for 50% off @ Walmart.ca. Instead of paying the original price of $55, you will pay just $27.50 for this large makeup set. This particular set even shows up for $13.75 at stores close to me. If you are heading over to your local Walmart Canada store, you might want to take a look for this item. This set includes the train case, lip gloss, eye shadows, pressed powder, lip stick, lip pencil, eye pencil, nail polish, nail butter, a mirror, a brush, lip brushes, applicators and even a toe separator.

Not only is this item discounted by 50%, but you will also get free shipping on all orders from Walmart.ca.

Birchbox Coupon Code: Get Free Shipping!

Birchbox Coupon Code: Get Free Shipping!

Birchbox.ca is a store which we haven’t yet mentioned here on the Bargainmoose blog. But we were in the process of getting their coupon code page set up on the forums, and we spotted a decent promotion which is worth a little mention on the blog. Here’s a coupon code for totally free Canadian shipping on any order, with no minimum spend!

Click here to use the Birchbox coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: bbshop
  • Discount: Free shipping
  • Expires: Unknown

Please note: the above coupon code is only valid on the items on sale on Birchbox – it doesn’t apply to their popular subscription boxes. Here’s what you should be seeing:

Birchbox Coupon Code: Get Free Shipping!

Usually, you would have to spend $70 or more to get free shipping from Birchbox, and this coupon code reduces that threshold to zero. Shipping on smaller items costs $7.95, so it’s a good little saving.

I had a glance in their “$25 and under” section to see if there were any items of interest. While some of the items in there appear to already have free shipping included as a matter of course, many items do not. I’ll show you some examples of the types of things you can get with totally free shipping using the code above:

From what I understand, even though Birchbox is operating off a DOT CA domain website, they are a US company and their orders ship from the US. So, there’s a chance that if you make a large order, you may have to pay duties and customs fees. I’d recommend keeping your order small, maybe making multiple orders if there are a few items that you are interested in purchasing.

However, they do have a duty free shopping section – all of these items, you won’t need to worry about duties whatsoever. The amount you see at checkout is all you will be paying. I’d love this Benefit Cosmetics Beauty Bonbons Limited Edition Gift Set which is currently priced at $79! I have a few Benefit pieces, they’re a great cosmetics brand.

TopBox: 78% Off Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow – Now $5 & Free Shipping

Posted by on December 3, 2014 at 3:09 PM

TopBox: 78% Off Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow   Now $5 & Free Shipping

TopBox Canada is selling Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow (1.2g) for just $5, originally $22.50. You receive approximately 78% off the original price and shipping is free as always.

Three of the four shades available are on sale:

  • Seaspray
  • Rich List
  • Black Comedy

This is just a great little deal and a fun way to spoil yourself on the cheap. Marsk Mineral Eyeshadows are 100% natural and cruelty free – they have never been tested on animals. The mineral-based loose powder has a creamy texture that blends well and creates a striking eye effect.

The Seaspray is fantastic for the girl who wants to be a mermaid, and the little Goth inside of me wants to buy the Black Comedy. I think Rich List is the gold colour eyeshade that would be glorious for holiday gatherings and other parties.

While these products do qualify for free shipping, which is what makes this deal even greater, they will not ship out until January 15th when the TopBox subscriptions ship. Thus, it will take a little patience to get your order unless you want to pay for shipping. Personally, I can wait.

There are some other good deals in the TopBox shop right now, but none quite as good as the eye shadow deal above. However, you may wish to add this Pari Beauty Eye Pencil Black to your cart for only $5, originally $12.

My favourite of the other deals would have to be the So Susan Intense Eye Shadow Palette with Coated Pigments for just $10, originally $29.96. You save 66% off the original price, which is a very good deal and it is such a pretty little palette.

In addition, this MeMeMe Cosmetics Shimmer Stack – Bronze is $2 off the regular price of $17 right now, pay only $15. I think you can do better with the deals above though.

Keep in mind that many of the limited edition holiday and winter boxes are out right now from TopBox. Anything you order now will ship on January 15th, 2015. While these will not make a good Christmas gift because you will not receive them until the New Year – they are a nice little gift all the same. I have several friends with birthdays in January. If I do not shop for them in November or December, I never seem to have any money come January.

Hudson’s Bay Canada: 50% Off Illamasqua Cosmetics (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 15, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Hudsons Bay Canada: 50% Off Illamasqua Cosmetics (EXPIRED)

It is time to replenish your makeup or buy stocking-stuffers for the ladies! Hudson’s Bay Canada is offering 50% off Illamasqua makeup, nail polish, and accessories. This is a lovely beauty on a budget sale!

Makeup is pretty personal. Everyone has their favourite shades and wears what they think looks good on their skin. Therefore, it can often be difficult to gift even though cosmetics make a practical gift that is pretty as well. Here are some of my suggestions on gift-able cosmetics.

Nail Varnish - Was $17 | Now $8.50

Nail polish is one of the easiest items to gift to another. Most women like to experiment with their nails, and come autumn they will be looking for deeper tones to complement their changing wardrobe. Illamasqua Nail Varnish comes in 16 different colour options with your choice of matte or shimmer. I like Nomad, a dull green, and Gamma, which is a pumpkin orange.

Masquara – Was $32 | Now $11.50

Mascara is actually easy to gift because most everyone wears black. It is only the odd woman who digs out a funky colour and goes wild. Just be sure that the person you are gifting it to actually uses Mascara. I cannot let anything come within a mile of my eyes (so sensitive), so I would be a poor one to give any eye makeup.

On the subject of eyes, I cannot help admiring the false eyelashes that Illamasqua has for sale. I have always wanted to try a pair of false eyelashes but there is no way I could get them on my eyes. Both the False Lashes and the Grandeur False Lashes are on sale for 50% off. The regular lashes are now $9 (were $18) and come in seven amazing different styles. It is so hard to choose just one! The fancy lashes were $22 and are now $11.

Foundation Brush Was $41.50 | Now $20.75

Makeup brushes make awesome gifts. I just had to buy myself a new foundation brush because my previous brush was shedding into my foundation. You can imagine how annoying that was! While I only use a foundation brush, there are plenty of different styles of brushes you can buy. They make easy gifts as almost every woman uses them and always appreciates a new one.

When you use your HBC card to checkout, you will receive free shipping on $29 or more of cosmetics. That makes this an even better deal.

Glam Goes Green Coupon Code: 20% Discount Sitewide

Posted by on October 3, 2014 at 8:30 PM

Glam Goes Green Coupon Code: 20% Discount Sitewide

Glam Goes Green is a small Canadian all-natural boutique I recently found. They are offering a very sweet 20% off coupon code all orders this month.

Click here to shop @ Glam Goes Green Canada now

  • Coupon Code: october
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expiry: 31st October 2014

Every time I find a new natural body care and beauty boutique in Canada, it makes me happy. Our selection is limited so any new stores are to be cherished. Glam Goes Green sells a few lines I recognize including Weleda as well as Pure + Simple. I recently received a Weleda hand cream, which I have not tried yet, but I have heard good things about the company.

Pure + Simple is a good way to get into natural beauty products at a lower price range. They have a Pure + simple Pure Skin Facial Wash 110 ml for just $14.95, which is competitive with middle-end brands in the beauty department. The wash includes aloe vera, which is quickly becoming my favourite beauty ingredient. It soothes dry skin, prevents damaged skin from peeling, and it reduces inflammation (redness). After coupon code, pay $11.96 for the Pure + simple face wash.

I just added several more things to my wish list from this store. I would love to buy these Shoo-Foo Bamboo Cloths for $14. The description on the website is inaccurate (it talks about the gym towel), but Shoo-Foo uses organic bamboo to make the softest towels and linens ever. I have a couple of their pillowcases and they are fantastic. Pick up some Shoo-Foo for just $11.20 after coupon.

Next on my wish list is the Corpa Flora Discovery Set that retails for $51. I have often wanted to try the brand’s products but I have not an idea where to start. A Discovery Kit allows me to try several of their products to figure out what ones are right for me. After coupon code, the set comes down to $40.80.

The brand I would like to try the most is Red Apple Lipstick. I do not wear makeup (except foundation) because I do not have the time to put into looking for a good quality natural brand that complements my skin tone. Also, when one’s budget is spent trying to conquer acne – lipstick becomes a frivolity. I would love to try this Red Apple Lipstick Fierce even though it might not suit my pale skin tone. I think it would be so beautifully Goth though. Originally $27, it will cost you just $21.60.

Shipping is a flat rate of $10.

Nail Polish Canada: 6 pc Collection by Zoya $32.50 (Was $58.50) + Free Shipping

Posted by on September 29, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Nail Polish Canada: 6 pc Collection by Zoya $32.50 (Was $58.50) + Free Shipping

Nail Polish Canada is having a sale on select Zoya nail polish. This six-piece Gems & Jewels Collection stood out to me as an excellent buy for anyone who loves doing their nails. Originally $59.50, the set is now on sale for $32.50 and will come with free shipping (as the set is over the $25 shipping minimum).

I picked this set because you get six fun nail polish colours including Twilia, Noel, Izzy, Kissy, Holly, and Rina. For those of us that do not speak nail polish, that is two greens, two reddish-pinks and two blues. One of each three colours has mega sparkly bits in it. While a bunch of Zoya nail polishes are also on sale, they are all discounted to $6.33 apiece. This bundle works out to $5.42 a bottle. Bundled is better!

So, price comparisons! I could not find this bundle in Canada but I did find it at a few places in the USA. Amazon.com is selling the very same collection for $51.99 USD and Beauty Lounge has the individual bottles from this collection priced at $6.75 USD each for a grand total of $40.50 USD. I even found it on eBay.com for $54 USD plus an outrageous amount for shipping.

We have established that this is a deal and we have established that owning these nail colours would rock – so what are you waiting for? This collection was actually a special edition set done for Christmas. You might notice the beautiful green reminiscent of trees, wreaths, and mistletoe. The reddish-pink is a better hew than standard Christmas red, and I think girls will like it a lot. My favourite is the blue. It is so strong and such an exciting colour. I have no idea why it would be in a Christmas themed pack, but I am glad it is there.

I am not the best one for blogging about Nail Polish as I get my nails done about once a year. That might explain why I never improve and why my hands look like a three-year old attacked me with a crayon. I do have a beautiful purple nail polish I whip out for those special occasions. Besides that, my nails are rarely in good enough shape to take the time to paint. Hey women who paint their nails often, how do you do it? My nails will not stay firm!

TopBox Canada has released a new Limited Edition LOULOU 10th Anniversary Collection box for just $35 with free shipping. All boxes are shipped on the 15th of October 2014.

The box includes the following items. I have done a bunch of research and tried to find a monetary value for each full size item:

  • B. Kamins Bio-Maple Maple Sugar Body Scrub (12 g)
  • Barefoot Venus Pink Pepper Green Tea Cleanser (60 mL – full size) - $5.50
  • essie sleek stick (full size) – $12.99
  • essie Under The Twilight nail lacquer (full size) - $7.70
  • Eyeko Black Magic Mascara (4 mL)
  • MeMeMe – Elegant Eyes Eyeshadow Trio (full size) - $9.98
  • OSiS+ Session Label Dust It Flex Mattifying Powder (10 g)
  • philosophy hope in a jar moisturizer for all skin types (7 mL)
  • Teeez Easy On The Eyes Eyeliner – Black (full size) – $20
  • Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau De Parfum (1.5 mL)

You will also receive a four issue print magazine subscription or a 12-issue digital magazine subscription that can be gifted.

Even if we just add up the five full sized items I found, you would be paying $56.17 for just them. That totally excludes the other five deluxe samples you are getting out of this kit that most certainly have value. That is why these kits are awesome, you are saving a bundle and you get to try some new products and have a lot of fun while doing so.

While I was researching the prices for the full sized items, I ran across a reoccurring theme: these items are stupid difficult to get in Canada. While essie isn’t too bad and Barefoot Venus is actually made in Canada, brands like MeMeMe and Teeez are impossible to find on this continent. Thus, their prices are actually converted over from the currency I found them in. For MeMeMe, I found it in England and Teeez I found in the United States. While this may deter some buyers, the rarity of these brands in Canada peaks my interest. I love to own things that are different from anyone else!

One of the samples is also driving me wild, so if you do not like it send it my way! I have long wanted to try Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau De Parfum! The Opium scent is a classic and I am eager to experience the subtle differences between the original and the newer Black Opium. I expect this perfume to be delightful.

Murale.ca: 31 Free Samples Worth $447 On A $125 Spend! (Plus 5 More Freebies & More Potential Free Gifts!)

Here on Bargainmoose, we often tell the Moosers about beauty deals, where if you spend a certain amount of money, you get X free samples worth $X, most frequently from the likes of Lancome and Estee Lauder. Well today, we’ve spotted such a deal both online and in-store @ Murale Canada. The basics of the deal are this – spend $125 or more and you will get a free cosmetic bag with 31 products worth $447+. That’s a really high value!

All you have to do to get this offer is spend $125 or more on anything on their site. Pop some items in your shopping cart and you will see the “Fab and Free Fall 2014” automatically added in there too. In addition to the above, you can also add a further 5 free samples of your choice as you are going through checkout. And on top of all that, if you’re buying certain items, there is a list of free gifts with purchase here.

Here’s an example cart showing the Fab and Free Fall plus 5 free samples:

That’s a lot of freebies!

I am not going to list all of the 31 samples that come with this GWP, but here is an idea of a few:

  • Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Serum Deluxe 5mL
  • Yves Saint Laurent Gloss Volupté Cartillette 3 trial shades
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimising Primer Deluxe 7mL
  • Full size Clinique long last lipstick in All Heart
  • Lancome Advanced Genifique 8mL

Scanning down the list, they’re all top brand names and really excellent samples… so definitely worth the spend. If you needed to stock up on some make-up or cosmetics, now would be a great time to do so.

Optimum Points

If this is your first time shopping online @ Murale.ca, don’t forget to link up your Shoppers Optimum card and claim some points on your purchase. You can do that as you are going through checkout.

Canadian Shipping

Murale used to have free shipping on a $75 spend, but it doesn’t seem to be applicable right now. Shipping appears to be a flat-rate of $8.50.
