(Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own). I can’t believe that Christmas is only 7 weeks away. It barely feels like Fall outside, but if you go into any store right now, you will get accosted by Christmas decorations and music. While I’m nooooot quite ready to spread that Holiday cheer (I mean can we at least acknowledge Thanksgiving? Hello!), I am ready for all of the pre-holiday deals that are starting to pop up.
I LIVE for beauty and perfume gift sets. Many brands develop products just for the season, but overall it’s a neat time to sample a new fragrance or lipstick formula without having to fully invest in a product. If it works, yay, you can go and get a full-sized version. If not, you can finish the sample and be done with it.
If I was a good Holiday shopper, I’d be making a dent in my list and wrapping up gift shopping early, but I’m gonna be honest with you-I’m looking for myself. I went to Sephora recently and saw all of these new holiday gift sets, so of course I came home and jumped on Groupon’s site to see if I could save even more (or get a little something extra). I look for both new and old favorites; the more I can experiment with, the better.
Clinique is a brand that I grew up with (their 3-step skincare program was the first one I ever tried when I was looking to start a routine). Their blushes, chubby lipsticks, and moisturizers are cult favorites, and right now they have a free gift w/purchase plus a few other coupon codes available via Groupon (score!)
Tarte is a brand that I’ve watched closely but have only tried 1 product-their bronzer (which worked more like a highlighter on me). I want to try their new Shape Tape Concealer and Amazonian Clay Blush and found a 15% off promo code on Groupon, so it’d be a sweet deal on a great product.
I’ll start my Holiday shopping for everyone else soon enough. Ha!
Have you used Groupon for Holiday shopping?
