This bag is part of Whole Foods' inaugural "Beauty Week," which runs from March 18 through March 24 to "celebrate all things beauty related." There will be "events, classes, demonstrations and promotions to inform shoppers about Whole Foods Market’s large selection of quality personal care products and cosmetics that support healthy people and a healthy planet."

Also, from March 20 to 22, shoppers can save 25% on all facial care items at Whole Foods Market.

For more info, check out the press release HERE and the blog entry on the Whole Foods website HERE. I can't seem to locate any info about the sizes of the products in this bag, but it appears that the makeup products are full-size, while the skincare and haircare COULD be deluxe samples (again, I'm not sure about that--this is only a guess!).

Thanks again, Manda J., for the tip about this one!


  1. No whole foods here.. but that Derma E scrub is really lovely. Almost identical to the Dr. Brant scrub that costs almost $80.

  2. Whoa. Thats a good deal. Guess im going to Whole Pay check (i mean WHOLE FOODS) on Sat. Thank you G! You rock. I never ever would have know about this (or most of the things you post) if it weren't for your aweseome blog and insta!

  3. This sounds awesome! I know Derma E, Acure, and 2chic are all really great brands!

  5. That Derma E scrub is my HG. Even the small size lasts forever.

  6. Will this be available in Canadian stores too?

  7. I'm 100% certain my life will not be complete without this. Thanks so much for sharing!

  8. YAY! After some digging, it seems that all of these products are vegan AND cruelty free! Just in case anyone wanted to know.....I miss getting promotional bags like this but I never could until now. THANK YOUUU!!!

    1. WF only carries CF brands, gotta love that! Btw if you ever miss Dove soap WF carries a bar soap called Verve and it is Dove but better. They also have one w that is a dupe of Irish Spring.

  9. Whoa, I was just at Whole Foods tonight and while I used to go almost weekly $$$ hasn't allowed for that this past year or I go maybe once a month if that (I always get my Spike no salt seasoning there as well as my all-time fav mayo Veganaise, one day soon imma splurge on the gallon from the website) Bragg acv and liquid aminos among a few other staples (I love the 365 house brand items!) Anyway, I stopped by the beauty area to check the free sample/coupon basket and was checking out the foundation by that brand Gabriel, before that I was only familiar w their nail polish. The blackberry Giovanni line is pretty new, I spotted that and another formula that was in a pink tube with Rose in it but neither one really spoke to me...I guess I expected to be naturally intoxicated being I LOVE both blackberry and rose but I felt "meh." Thanks sooo much for sharing I just may find myself there on Sat. Oh, I did notice that Acure mask while there too, my skin seems to really respond well to sea buckthorn so i'd like to give that one a go.

  10. Does anyone know the sizes of these products to be included in the bag?

  11. Wow, this looks like a great buy! I especially love that adorable bag and gorgeous lipstick. I guess I'll have to make a stop at Whole Foods on Saturday!

  12. I love this! Thanks for the head's up.

  13. Just nabbed my beauty bag this morning! I already had the Acure scrub but love it, and I can't wait to try the other products. My beauty section was fairly empty so I bet you have a good chance of getting these. The sales lady said they will have more events like these throughout the year.

  14. I had found that earth science and alba products are frequently available at TJ Maxx/Marshalls (I am East Coast). Those prices still beat Whole Foods at the 25% off facial care discount, but I was able to try new products through the WF deal!
