Bobbi Brown Freebies With Purchase. I Can't Help Myself!

Soon I'll be starting my third little pot of Bobbi Brown Corrector! This is my absolute favourite makeup product for covering dark eye circles and is definitely a Holy Grail for me, because the results are outstanding and no other product I've tried comes close to achieving the same effect. You can read my review in this post:  Product Rave! Bobbi Brown Corrector. Just Wow.

Holy Grail status: Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Bisque

Now you may remember me having a bit of a meltdown over Bobbi Brown online's shitty customer service (if not, hit up Bobbi Brown Goodies & A Customer Service Fail) so let me explain why I bit the bullet and ordered from the site again.

1. I need this product, so it's either buy it in-store or online. Last time I bought one in-store I received no freebies. Not a one. However, last time I bought one online, I received two good-sized freebies (Long Wear Eye Pencil in Jet and Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Pink) plus 4 free samples with my order, that I got to choose.

2. The main problem last time was the email confirmation stated I would be emailed again in 1-2 days to let me know when my order had shipped. I never received such an email, even after 7 days. When I tried contacting the company, their customer service line went to a recording prompting me to leave a message and they would call back. They never called me back. So it was a bit of a worry. Given this previous experience, this time I decided not to worry about the shipping notification email they promise (true to form I still didn't get one lol) and not bother contacting them (pointless anyway). And my order actually arrived pretty promptly!

3. Bobbi Brown online offers free shipping on foundations, correctors, concealers and powders. So there's no added cost to get it delivered; my total would be $40 whether I got it in-store or online.

When all is said and done, the fact remains they do offer great freebies as an incentive to order online with them. I'm still using the 7ml Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm pot from my last order. It's a great way to try different products from the brand, for free, when you buy something you were going to purchase anyway. Here are the freebies I got this time:

~ Instant Long Wear Makeup Remover (30ml)
~ Long Wear Gel Eyeliner and Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush
~ Extra Repair Moisture Cream (7ml)
~ Extra Eye Repair Cream (2.5ml)
~ Hydrating Eye Cream (sample sachet)
~ Intensive Skin Serum Corrector in Light Bisque 2 (sample sachet)

Everything here was free!

Pretty good, right?

  1. This is pretty good, I have been wanting to try the corrector. I may get myself matched and buy it online :) thanks for the tip

    1. No worries! You will love it, it's so effective if you have darkness around the eyes :)

    1. Yeah, they are good with freebies, I'll give them that!

  3. I can't stray from bobbi brown, their bronzer is my favourite. I'll look to get the concealer next, I have pretty bad under eye circles!

    1. The Corrector is amazing! I haven't tried the bronzer, but then again I don't really use bronzer. lol

  4. i too cant help myself when I see stuff like this. Feelunique is pretty good at giving free samples too :) LOVE! Must try this concealer

  5. Love freebies and Bobbi! :)


    1. Yes, they sure know how to entice shoppers back! Thanks for reading :) xx

  6. I've been meaning to try that concealer after your review but haven't got down to it yet! Have you tried any of their foundations before?
    They're really generous with the samples :)

    1. No, I haven't tried any of their foundations! I wonder what they would be like, I haven't read any reviews? :)

  7. We all love something for free (even if we secretly know we probably paid for it in their margins). That looks like a great bundle of things to try. Enjoy!

  8. They do have good offers on bobbi brown online!
    I quite like the bobbi brown skin foundation it has a lightweight feel and gives a medium coverage, looks quite natural :)

    1. I've never tried their foundation, but that does sound lovely!
