Contents of Cle de Peau Freebie from January 16th

image credit: Alice for Novueau Cheap

PLEASE NOTE: this freebie is no longer available. I originally posted about it on January 16, 2015. This post is only to show those of you who haven't received it yet what you might be getting (IF you signed up and get this freebie in the mail).

Over the past several weeks, I received more questions about this freebie than any other freebie I have ever posted about on this blog. I know that MANY of us signed up for this one back on 1/16 when it was still available, and the types of questions that I've been receiving here on the blog, on social media, and via email all go something like this:

"G., I haven't received that Cle de Peau freebie in the mail yet! Have you? Has anyone??"

Now generally speaking, it can take anywhere from 3-8 weeks to receive freebies in the mail. So up until a few weeks ago, I wasn't terribly concerned about not getting this one. But this week will be week 11 since the freebie was available, and THAT led me to believe that maybe none of us would be getting it after all.

BUT THEN, today I received some comments and emails from some lovely readers, letting me know that they received their freebie today (3/17). And they also shared pics of what they received! So it looks like some of us WILL be getting this one after all. I use the word "some" because I have no way of knowing if every single person who signed up for this freebie will get it. Such is the nature of freebies. You win some, you lose some.

Before I get to the pics, I would like to take a moment just to remind you that I am only the messenger here, and I have no affiliation with any of the freebies that I share with you on the blog. Over the past several weeks, 99.9% of the comments and questions I received about this freebie were of a friendly nature (as always!), but I did receive some rather harsh comments/emails fueled with anger that was directed toward me personally. That was frustrating to see, since I am not the one controlling or distributing these freebies. Again, I am only the messenger. So please, if something goes wrong and you don't get a freebie that you signed up for here on my blog, I would be grateful if you didn't blame me personally. I do the best I can to bring you offers, but I'm only a consumer and I don't control what happens with these things. Thanks so much for keeping that in mind!

So let's get to these pics:

Reader Alice was the first one to let me know that she received this freebie in the mail today. Alice also kindly shared some pics of the contents with us and if  you scroll up to the first pic in this post, Alice pointed out that the package shipped from Glamour Magazine. This makes sense since I seem to recall that this promo had "glamour" in the URL. 

As promised, Alice received a full-size Cle de Peau concealer brush, as well as a sample of  Cle de Peau concealer.

The sample concealer shade that Alice received was Beige, and she kindly shared a swatch:

Shortly after I received pics from Alice, reader Katherine also let me know that she received her freebie in the mail today, and she kindly shared these pics. FYI, Katherine also received the sample concealer in the shade Beige.

If you signed up for this freebie back in January, have YOU received it yet? I'd love to hear from you if/when you do. In the meantime, fingers crossed!

Thanks again, Alice and Katherine, for taking the time to share these pics with us. I truly appreciate it!

  1. How exciting!! I think this warrants a walk to the apartment mailboxes. I was wondering where this was.

  2. No I haven't received mine, but even if they did send me a package, it's possible I'd never receive it considering how my mailman steals anything with the word sample on the package. Usually I just never receive samples that I ordered in my mail box, but one time he emptied out the 4 shampoo samples from a box, put a dog treat in, and then poorly taped it up to make it as if my sample box actually arrived in tact LOL.

    1. It's actually a federal offense to tamper with mail. If this is really happening I would 100% report him/her. Take pics and write down all details that you can remember!!

    2. Indeed. I did file a complaint two months ago, and so far I haven't ordered samples besides this, which I received yesterday, but to be fair the package looked like a normal parcel. I'll have to see if he's still at it.

  3. I received my sample today, and the color is beige as well. I have not tried it out yet, but I did sit and admire the brush- it's a beauty. :)
    G., thank you so much for letting your readers know about this offer, I am so excited that I got a chance to receive this. I would not have know about it otherwise.

  4. Got mine today! I received the beige shade as well which will probably be too dark for my fair skin, so I'll share with a friend. :) Was surprised to see the return address as Glamour Magazine.

  6. Yikes! Super sorry that you have been the recipient of negative comments/feedback - you have been truly marvelous and without you I would've missed a lot of these great deals.

    In regards to the sample, I emailed them directly a couple weeks ago, asking about my request and they basically said I was out of luck =(

    Maybe today IS my lucky day (even though I'm not Irish ^_^) and I'll have a package waiting for me when I get home! Totally love that brush...aaahhhhh

    Keep up the good work!!

  7. G, I thank you for all your efforts in letting us know about all the deals and freebies. I can't imagine anyone so unkind as to blame you for what they don't get, that's inexcusable.
    I appreciate all you do, even though I spend a lot more money than I would have had your blog not existed LOL.

  8. Thanks to Alice, Katherine, and G for sharing this information! I was just wondering about this sample the other day. We'll see if my mom and I will receive ours. If not, no biggie!

    G--Such a shame that you're getting not-so-nice messages from even a tiny portion of readers. The vast majority of us are very grateful for the time and effort you put into passing deals along to us. There are only a finite number of samples that a company allots for these giveaways but I guess some people just don't get it. Please know that we appreciate all that you do!

  10. I am sorry people are being negative about this. I wasn't able to get the freebie but in no way shape or form would I blame you. The website decided it was over. Those people need to be more reasonable.

  11. Hello G. how rude of people to be unkind to you for not receiving a freebie ! Makes me mad 👿. Thank you for keeping us in the loop of offers and savings and freebies. We really appreciate you and your blog is one of my favorites ❤️💙💚💛💕💗

  14. I have not received mine and I am not holding my breath. I am glad others are getting so there IS hope! I can't believe people are getting all uptight with you. WTF?!?!? That blows my mind!!! Who does that???? I can't imagine your loyal readers do it, it must be random readers. I think you are amazing G.!!!

  15. That's upsetting that people were upset at you over this freebie! If not for you, they may not have known about it at all in the first place. What a shame.

    That brush is beeee-yooo-teefull. I wish I had managed to snag one when the freebie was available!

Like you said, you're just the messenger. Heck I actually forgot about it until I saw your post and then mine came. It wasn't that serious to me I guess.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  35. Received mine today too. Forgot I had signed up for it, so it was a nice little surprise. Beige will work for me, I'll have to give it a go.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Got mine on Friday! I had totally forgotten about this until you posted, so thank you! If people didn't get one, they can suck it up. You can't win them all, and YOU certainly weren't giving the brushes away (as per the return address on the envelope)! People need to take a chill pill and be nicer.
