Open-Thread Thursday: I Fought The Lemming And The Lemming Won; also, Sales

By Voxy  

I love you by benleto.So I had these dollars that were just sitting around, about to expire, and it would have been a waste not to use them, right? And once I was on the site, it would be a waste not to buy enough to get free shipping, right? Especially since most of what was already in my shopping cart was basic, staple stuff (contact lens solution, facial cleanser, etc.), not foolish cosmetic frippery. I was being a responsible shopper and minding my low-buy! So really, paying for shipping would have been absurd when for about the same price I could have thrown a little something else useful and practical in my cart and ended up with shipping for free. The bottom line stays the same, but I get more product for the money, right?


I knew you would agree with me. That’s why I love you.

So since we have all agreed that it was a good idea, we hardly even need to mention that the thing I threw into my shopping cart to tip it over the free shipping point was the Neutrogena Liquid Sunblock I mentioned I was lemming last week. We can just gloss right over that part. (Unless, that is, it turns out to be TEH AWESOME and I need to squee about it.)

And now, let me quickly distract you with…


Late into my box: Rock & Republic is having a F&F sale — 30% off — but it ends today, 5/6. (Sorry, ladies; I only just got word of this one.) Code: FF30.

Gilt (like HauteLook) has DDF Skincare on sale today starting at noon Eastern time.

Speaking of HauteLook, they have POP Beauty starting today and Moy Skincare starting tomorrow 5/7.

    It will be totally different. I *also* hear it comes with a choir of angels and a puffy unicorn sticker.

    (I think we need the Mouseman in here, stat.)

    Very unrealistic…

    (but do let us know if it is different; the rest of us with Neutrogena allergies might try it too)

    Voxy! We have already established that you are probably allergic to Neutrogena, no?

      But maybe this time will be different! (she says, with unrealistic hope)
