Freeman Beauty: Spooky Mystery Bag4:07 PM
So earlier this month Freeman Beauty began to sell a limited time Spooky Mystery Bag which they said contains over $90 worth of goodies. Well considering the price I decided to order it but since it's only $20 and it takes $25 to qualify for free shipping I decided to pick up another item with it to get the free shipping. On top of that I used the promo coded WELCOME for a free Psssst Dry Shampoo and got a free mask of my choice! So how much did I end up spending out of pocket? Only $25.99!
First my picks:
- c. Booth Triple Action Bath, Shower & Hair Wash Revitalizing Rosemary Mint, $5.99
- Feeling Beautiful Chocolate & Strawberry Facial Clay Mask Travel Size, FREE ($1.99 retail)
- Freebie item: Psssst! Instant Dry Shampoo, 1.76 oz ($2.99 retail)
As for the Mint shower wash, I've tried the c.Booth Original Bath & Body Oil (sent courtesy of Freeman Beauty) and liked it so figured I'd give the wash a try. I don't use the oil as frequently as I should but it is something I'd repurchase since it's only $9.99.
Now what's inside my Spooky Mystery Bag?
Total value of my Spooky Mystery Bag:
*Note: I've seen on Valentine's Day Kisses where she received the sample/travel size of the Honey Almond body butter. I did come across a YouTube video and the lady in it also received the sample/travel size of the body butter. My guess is that Freeman broke up the sets to send products so I'm sure that some people will be getting the 2 oz Honey Almond Nourishing Dry Oil Mist instead of the body butter or the wash. (See edit #2 below.)
So was it as advertised? No. My "bag" was a little under $3 short of being $90 and it's definitely not "over $90". Was it worth the $20? To me it was. I'm thrilled that I received a full size of the Strawberry and Chocolate mask! I've stated it a few times on my blog or Facebook wall or MakeupTalk that I've been wanting to buy it but no one around here sells the Strawberry and Chocolate full size mask so I'm happy I got one in the mystery bag.
Also note that the contents of the Spooky Mystery Bags (boxes) will vary as will the value of the box. If you're curious to know what your box/bag value is add it up.
Edit: Forgot to mention, I DID find it strange that they sent a conditioner without the shampoo and had they added the shampoo ($2.99) with the conditioner it would have made the box over $90 at $90.77.
Edit #2: I heard back from Freeman Beauty and they place a $3.33 value on the Honey Almond wash. This would make my box value a total of $89.80. Factoring in the item I purchased and the two additional freebies via their gift with purchase and promo codes the total value of my $25.99 is $100.77 which is almost a 75% savings! So while the value of the Spooky Mystery Bag is not "over a $90 value" I did get my money's worth.
