Oprah Is Taking All My Money!

Have you seen this months issue of the Oprah magazine? They have a section called "25 for $25 (or Less!)", which is full of beauty bargains. Usually, I breeze through features like this, scoffing at their so-called "deals" for items I either would never want to buy or items I can find for even less. This 3 page section was different though. It had 3 items I wanted and if I bought all 3, I would be spending $75, plus shipping, but the regular price of the items would be $360! All I had to do was use the coupon code OPRAH or OPRAH25.

I know, I know. It doesn't matter if the regular price was $5000 if I wasn't going to buy the products to begin with. True, I hadn't even heard of these before, but after reading about them, I had to have them! Or (cheap side kicking in) at least one of them!

 


Despite the super good deals, I just couldn't bring myself to part with $75 for face creams. After comparing products online and reading reviews, I decided to buy the Peter Thomas Roth Mega Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Creme, partly because of the impressive reviews but mostly because you get a whopping 3.4 ounces, verses the tiny 1 ounce bottles of the others. Seriously, for $100 and up, 1 ounce is ridiculous. That's like the size of a free sample!

I couldn't just stop with my 1 bottle of face cream though. Shipping was going to be $10 - almost 1/2 the price of the product! But it would be free if I spent $50 (don't you just love where this is going? Admit it, this has happened to you too!) So, I have a bottle of Peter Thomas Roth Mega Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Creme (I cut/paste this insanely long name, of course) and a $32 bottle of Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid Clarifying Tonic coming my way. Oooh, and some free samples too (what a deal!)

8.5oz for only $32? Aren't I a lucky girl!

I'll post some product reviews just as soon as these *bargains* arrive!

  1. I am SUCH a sucker for these kinds of deals! Good thing I don't have any extra money this month (or EVER, ba dum ch).

    P.S. In response to your note, I definitely DVR Design Star - I'd already watched it, which is why it wasn't in the queue. :)

  2. I just went to my 20 year HS reunion. If these really are the miracle elixirs then I am getting ready to part with $100. I am ready to read those reviews!

  3. You don't need anti aging stuff, aren't you like my age?

  4. I'm the same way, I love*love*love great deals. You know Groupon (if you don't then you know that you want to click on my referral link: http://www.groupon.com/r/uu1496556) and other group buying sites, yes? They are completely addictive, I have bought way too many things lately, though I added it up recently and it's completely worth it. Something like $75 for somewhere around $250 worth of things/services.

  6. I love it when shipping is almost as much as the product. Do tell us what you think when it arrives!
