  1. I received mine @ 12pm. No discounts and they had on display 5 different lotion foil packs on display by Weleda that we were only allowed to have 1 of each. They were plenty left and on display but I don’t think they were really pushing them.

  2. I picked mine up around 12:30 edt and there were more available. They included a bag with 35+ other samples. I also received a bag with about 10 samples of Aubrey products. My bag is a pretty blue on the inside and I received the lipstick instead of the eye shadow, which I’m happy about.

    • Same here! The sample bag they gave me was massive! Some foils, but a lot of bottles (ranging from .37oz – .60oz in size), mascara, and a bronzer compact. I have so many samples, they won’t even fit in the cute Hello, Beauty bag. I didn’t get the discount, but my extra bag had a ton of coupons as well as a cute mini-mag. I hope they decide to do these bags quarterly. The lipstick is my new favorite!

  3. I got mine at 10 am Pacific. There were 3 other people in line there ahead of me when I got there at 10 am. My bag was not at a discount and did not contain any extra samples. However they did have Giovanni 2chic dual moisture complex avocado + olive oil body wash and lotion foil pack samples next to it.

    The lining of my bag is the ivory, navy, and orange flower pattern. I like it.

    Bag contained what is listed above including the Pacifica eye shadow in unicorn/moonbeam .07 oz/ 2 g size.

    Interesting that the derma e, mascara, and facial mask all say sample/promotional item/not for individual sale. Also the shampoo is 1.5 fl oz, moisturizing cream is 1.18 fl oz.

    I think $18 it seems about right for this but it’s definitely not worth $60 in my opinion.

  4. I went to whole foods thinking of buying it, but I saw it’s all deluxe samples. I’d rather just buy what I want, but the bag is cute.

  5. Just wondering if anyone else got an extra baggie of samples along with their Beauty Bag or 25% of of their bag? I didn’t seem to get either of those?

    • I got an extra baggie of samples but not the 25% off.

    • I got an extra Baggie but the samples were little and foil packets…. Also the coupon too for 25% off a beauty item

      • No discount or extra samples at mine. The girl told me that they received only eyeshadow bags as did the 2 closest by (I’m in San Diego – so Hillcrest, UTC and Del Mar if anyone is interested). I didn’t grab it. I probably would have if there was an extra sample bag!! I was there at 11, I don’t think any had been sold. They were not even in the beauty department – in a bin in between checkout, kombucha and prepared foods.

  6. It’s 11:30 here and my Whole foods has 49 bags left as I just bought one. I got the lipstick and my bag is dirty yellow inside. No extras.

    Maybe tomorrow they will be on clearance 😉

    • I got a bag with eyeshadow, was hoping for the lipstick, which my store doesn’t even carry. The purple/ivory eyeshadow isn’t very pigmented, more of a lavender/gold sparkle on. The eyeshadow and mascara are pretty big, not sure if they are full size though. The other items are deluxe sample sizes.

      No discount on the bag.

      25% off facial care products (not makeup) and a gift bag with $25 purchase.
      The gift bag seemed aimed at dry aging skin, which is a bummer since I’ve got oily skin. One full size Alaffia Baobab & shea Butter skin renewal facial scrub for mature dry skin, full size savage jenny blooming peach blush, sample bar of moon dance ancient clay face and body bar, small sample Clay Mask seaweed deep pore cleanser, and some tiny samples welda wild rose lotion, claybrite toothpaste, mychelle Wrinkle spot treatment-vit A plus serum.

  7. I may be interested, depending on the sizes of the items. I called my whole foods and they said they had plenty left and other samples out too because they did a beauty event at 10am. If they are all small sized, I might just take advantage of their 25% off skin care sale instead. It’s all weekend, not sure if every store has this sale. The product I really love is the acure face mask- it’s amazing.

  8. I bought one at 11 and there were Only 3 left. Plus it came with a big baggie of 10 or so extra samples too! I love how the bags have different patterned fabric inside. I love mine:)

  9. I picked up one of these bags this morning. They include deluxe samples in a cute bag. Mine was discounted $2.25 off the $18 price. I haven’t sampled most of these products before, so I’m excited to give them a try!

    • If anyone is thinking of getting one, I’d suggest going soon. My store did not have very many available and I got there only a little after 10 AM (Eastern). I expect these will sell out today.

  10. Love the eye shadow colors: Unicorn and Moonbeam

  11. Going to head over to get one. My WFMWhole body shop says first come and ther are not supposed to hold one for you.

  12. Are these sample sizes or full size?

    • I’m guessing samples for at least some. The Derma e product retails for over $20 at full size. Seeing as there are five other products and a stated value of $60, at least some of them almost have to be samples.

  13. I will be making a morning run to Whole Foods instead of my usual late afternoon run! I like the Derma e product a lot.

  14. Online it says the bag is value at $60! I am about to call my local Whole Food just to make sure they do have it!

  15. Well, I know where I’m going on Saturday!

  16. I wish they would sell this bag online!!!

  17. Are they just sample sizes?

  18. What a great little bag at a good price! I live right around the corner from WF so will definitely pop over on Saturday to pick one up — maybe some for gifts too.
