One thing I love more than shopping, is online shopping. No queues, no noisy human beings, no pushing & shoving, no children vomiting on my feet (that legitimately happened to me a few years ago), plus I can wear my PJ pants & slippers whilst shopping. What’s not to love, right? Right. I’m not saying I don’t like visiting the shopping mall every now & again, I totally do. But sometimes you just want to sit in a comfy chair & *click* *click* *click*.
Spree has always been one of my absolute favourite South African online stores, I’ve bought everything from home décor, to jewellery, to makeup products in their online sotre and have never been disappointed with their customer service or delivery for that matter. They also have epic sales and pretty darn awesome promotions every few months. Take for instance their beauty promo that’s currently running: Buy any 3 beauty products, and get the cheapest one FREE. The best part? You can mix & match your goodies – there are absolutely no T&Cs that say all 3 products have to be skincare, or all 3 products have to be from the same brand.
You can literally choose A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G from their beauty section!
I find the Spree online store to be very user-friendly – just pop all your goodies into your online basket, click on the ‘Check Out’ button, add your address and contact details (better yet, register on their website & sign up for their newsletter to receive R 50,00 off your first order), pay using your credit card (it’s super safe, promise) and voila! Your order will be delivered free of charge within 2 to 6 working days.
I was very excited when Spree contacted me last week to find out whether I’d be interested in receiving a #BeautySpree voucher to the value of R 1000 to spend in their online store here. Let’s be real: They didn’t have to ask me twice! I immediately hopped onto their website & started adding goodies from Catrice, NYX, Essence, Morgan Taylor and Max Factor to my online basket. I then had a bit of an ‘Aha….’ moment.
If I add 20 items all valued at around R 30,00 – R 60,00 then I’ll only get 1 free product valued at R 30,00. BUT…if I shop the more luxury items on the website i.e. fragrances and / or high-end makeup, then I’ll probably get more value for my money spent. At the end of the day, it all depends on how much money you have to spend. But be savvy about it, and plan ahead. I usually take advantage of these ‘3-for-2’ or ‘buy-1-get-1-free’ promotions to stock up on birthday- and Christmas gifts.
So, in the end I ordered the below beauties:
Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer ♥ R 420,00 – An oil-free, high definition, high performance foundation that stays all day and delivers a flawless finish. Stila’s Stay All Day Foundation and Concealer has a unique oxygen technology that leaves skin hydrated, nourished and helps prevent premature aging. This multi-tasker also contains a creamy, full coverage concealer cleverly hidden inside the cap (along with a handy mirror) that instantly hides blemishes, dark circles and age spots creating an impeccable canvas for flawless makeup application. Spatula and brush included for ease of application!
CK Be Eau De Toilette 100ml Gift Set ♥ R 490,00 – The idea of the fragrance is “be-yourself”. Transparent, silky and very sexy. A fresh woody fragrance unisex with an opening of bergamot, mandarin, juniper, lavender, peppermint and green notes. In the heart of the composition is jasmine, orchid, freesia, magnolia with a fresh hint of peach. This specific gift set includes a portable speaker that houses your MP3 player, as well as a 100ml CK Be fragrance.
DKNY Fresh Blossom Eau De Parfum 30ml ♥ R 500,00 – A blend of sparkling grapefruit, cassis, and sunkissed apricot meets a blooming floral heart of muguet and rose wrapped in luminous jasmine. Fresh, vibrant, and feminine. I mentioned the DKNY Golden Delicious fragrance in my monthly favourites blog post here & I’ve been loving it! I wanted to add another DKNY fragrance to my collection, so decided on this pink little cutie. I’ll let you know what I think of the scent.
Which means…I received the Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer FREE! Score!!
