Bonus Items

The day before the sale Peach & Lily advertised on their Instagram that if you spent over $350 dollars you got a peach slices pouch with the entire peach slices masks set with the acne patches. I will admit, I scoffed. Riiight up to the moment the cashier rang me up and said “Oh, you get a pouch”

Last year I spent 399 for 3 people so in retrospect I’m not feeling too sassy about the total. Although I did get more items last year, whereas this year we spent a bit more on some premium merch. And if you’re curious about what was available last year, here is my post

The setup felt fairly similar to last year in terms of having the shopping be in a horseshoe loop. Alicia felt much better about the setup this year and that everything was smoother. Last year felt pretty smooth to me tho ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Unlike last year, I arrived in the middle of the afternoon and I felt like there was plenty of things to buy that were on me and my friend’s wishlists. The only things that sold out early were the lagom cellup cleanser,  the let me skin water jelly mask, and the olivarrier oil.

I didn’t bring a rolley bag up with me, but did bring a backpack which was a good idea as I was traveling solo. It’s not that the bags aren’t strong, it’s just that the products are often glass and pretty heavy added up.

The biggest change was that they brought out waaay more masks this year and reduced the makeup offerings. This probably coincides with the movement of makeup over to peach slices & CVS

I don’t really have any recommendations in terms of changes to the event, I think that it was better in terms of having more premium brands available throughout the day.

10/10

I hope you enjoyed my brief post on my peepingpom personal shopping

cheers
