If You're About to Order from Sephora, Read This (Hurry)

I literally JUST received my most recent order from Sephora, and the moment I opened the box, I had to snap some pics of this freebie to share with you because I'm freaking out over the size of this!

As you probably know, Sephora has a code right now to get a deluxe sample every day through Christmas, free with your $25+ order. Enter code MERRYMINI at checkout to choose your sample. Here are the choices as of the time of this post:


If you choose the Phyto Phyokeratine Extreme Exceptional Cream deluxe sample ($40 for 3.5 oz. full-size bottle), get ready for a big surprise, because this thing is huge! This sample went live as an option on December 8th but it's still available now (I don't know how much longer it's going to stick around though!).

I selected this Phyto sample with my recent order a few days ago. Here's a closer look:


This sample comes in a thick, heavy glass bottle with a pump applicator. 

1.0 oz., made in France


I grabbed a nail polish bottle (standard, full-size nail polish) just to put it next to this "sample" for comparison. Huge, right? I was SO not expecting this!

I adore Phyto haircare but I just can't afford to use it exclusively. I've been dying to try this product and now I'm contemplating placing another Sephora order so I can grab another sample for free! Seriously, if you've been wanting this one, grab this sample before it's gone. And apologies if this is no longer an option by the time you read this!

  1. But the REAL questions are :
    1) What did you order?
    2) When do you rest?
    You have been blowing up your blog and other social media almost non-stop since before Thanksgiving, friend! I hope you get some rest soon!

    1. Lol! To answer your questions:

      1) I bought this: http://bit.ly/1Jfa5NX as a birthday gift to myself with my VIB $20 off $50 discount. I have always wanted to try Glamglow (I know a lot of people think it's overhyped, while others swear by it) so I finally took the plunge because of this gift set and discount. :)

      2) Never during the holidays. No time for rest when these deals are coming at us so quickly--I'll be taking a nice break after the new year. Promise.

      Thank you so much! xo

  3. I grabbed the mix it up promo instead which was a clutch with 12 samples. Totally didn't see this promo! Maybe I'll use my VIB renewal 10% off and grab something else :)

    1. I got that one too (with another order...hangs head in shame). lol! But THIS one's even better to me, because I know I will use it (some of those samples in the Mixitup bag were just "meh" for me). If you end up placing another order today, jump on this one if you think you'll use it! I still cannot get over the size. It's like this should be the full-size and the full-size should be jumbo size!

  4. They just have so many promos. I didn't even see this deluxe sample one! Last time I got a deluxe sample, it was HUGE!

    1. It's a leave-in conditioner. I linked to the item listing in my post if you'd like more info! :)

  6. The "luxeskin" promo is awesome also! I got the Tatcha moisturizer and it was so big that I checked their website and it's the travel size they sell for $30!!

  7. I also choose this deluxe sample with my most recent order which should be arriving later today. Excited to see how large it actually is. I tried a deep conditioner from Phyto awhile back and was quite impressed. The price points on this brand is pretty steep.

    Just wanted to let you all know about another Sephora promo code I received in an email yesterday. Choice of 3 different 3 piece deluxe skin care samples from either Dr. Brandt, AmorePacific, or Caudalie with $35 purchase. VIBFACIAL. You must be a VIB or Rouge customer to redeem.

    I've definitely been spending way too much on beauty products lately with all the holiday sales going on but I think I may have to place another Sephora order just to get one of these skincare trios!

    1. I got that email today too. Those are amazing. Once you redeem it, they don't let you redeem it again.

    2. Have you tried the Alterna CC cream? Its awesome too. I love Phyto products( I believe they are all made in France), I used them years and years ago when I first got into higher end beauty products.

    3. I haven't tried the Alterna CC cream yet but it's been on my radar for awhile now. I also want to try Alterna Bamboo dry oil mist.

  8. Interesting...I am not familiar with the brand. That is an awesome deluxe sample!!

  9. This may convince me to place an order, though I just spent a fortune there this weekend!!!

  10. I ran and ordered it as soon as I could, thank you! It's still available :)

  11. I have picked up a lot of Alterna CC cream (samples and bigger bottles) and was curious to try this...I ended up ordering the blue combo skin Foreo Luna that came with 3 full size Boscia products...it was/is on sale for $169 down from $199. I just had to do it! I got this Phyto sample as well. It came today (Flash shipping), and the Phyto bottle was in a white box and heavy because it is glass, so I wasn't sure what it was. It is huge! I know you showed comparison with nail polish bottle, but it just really hit home to see it in person.

  12. Yes, it is HUGE! Ordered it because of you and wow! Gigantic. It has to be full-sized. Thanks for the heads up!
