Mark Your Calendars: The Whole Foods Market Beauty Bag is Back!


I just received this information directly from Whole Foods and I'm delighted to tell you that the Whole Foods Beauty Bag is BACK! I've posted about previous Whole Foods beauty bags (they offered two in 2015) and they're always a fantastic value. This year is certainly no exception!

Whole Foods Market Beauty Week starts on March 18 and runs through March 20, at all Whole Foods locations (this is an in-store only event). During the duration of this event, all facial care products will be 25% off regular price. 

And the best part? The Whole Foods Beauty Bag, of course!


On Friday, March 18 (in-store only), Whole Foods will offer limited edition “hello, beauty” bags for $15 each. The bags are made by Riji Green, which is a business committed to ending human trafficking.

The total retail value of this bag is $80 and will include the following:
  • Deluxe Dr. Hauschka Soothing Cleansing Milk (.34 oz.)
  • Deluxe derma e Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask (.5 oz.)
  • Deluxe Acure Pore Minimizing Facial Scrub (1 oz.)
  • Deluxe evanhealy Rose Geranium Facial Toner HydroSoul (1 oz.)
  • Deluxe Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant + (10 ml.)
  • Deluxe MyChelle Perfect C Serum (.17 oz.)
  • Full-Size Mineral Fusion Lash Curling Mineral Mascara in Gravity (.57 oz.)
  • Full-Size Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Sunset Cruise (.12 oz.)
  • Deluxe Weleda Skin Food (.34 oz.)
  • Riji Green Organic Cotton Bag

Just the Mineral Fusion Mascara alone retails for $18.99 (and the Burt's Bees Lipstick retails for $9). So just like with previous bags, this is a fantastic value.

TIP: If you're interested in getting this bag, I would try to get to your local Whole Foods as early as you can on Friday, 3/18. I seem to recall that last year, some stores sold out before end of day, while other stores had bags available a few days after the start of the event. But just to be safe, don't wait!

  2. Is this only in store? It's not available on-line?

  3. My whole foods had signs for this over the weekend. I inquired & was told they were on an ask for it basis. ? My WF is weird. She brought me one & I bought it, but actually found myself having to convince the cashier it wasn't free for the taking.

    Anyway, It's the best WF beauty bag so far!

  4. My WF in Valencia had these for at least a week after the launch. I remember I was out of town last year and asked a friend to pick it up for me. I also remember the founders of Evan Healy were at my store and if you brought them a bottle of any cleanser, they gave you one of theirs. I went to the dollar store and got a bottle of something. I'm currently using their cleansing milk. It feels great, but does not remove all my makeup.

  5. He, I just typed out a pretty lengthy comment on this post and then I instead of hitting publish, I hit sign out of google :/ Anyhow, I was just saying that I live in upstate NY and the closest WF is over 4 hrs away (round trip) so that's unfortunately going to be a hard pass on this. I saw the Mineral Fusion line at Target recently and they are def not drugstore prices! Also, I have a cpl of the new Burt's bees lipstick and they are very comfortable. What a bummer, I wish this bag was available online as well!

  6. Ahhh, thank you so much for letting us know about this - I was just thinking about these too! I think the last ones had Riji Green bags also? I liked them! The stuff in this one looks awesome.

    The previous two I got (I'm in Oregon) were in not in any danger of selling out. At one store, I was there midday and they had an endcap FULL of them. The cashier had a really hard time finding the price on it and seemed really confused as to what it was!

    (Of course now that I've said this I won't be able to get one this time...)

    1. Haha, I guess I jinxed myself. :( My store didn't have any by the time I got there. Oh well, maybe next time!

  7. Mineral Fusion mascaras in general are the bomb diggity. I have not tried the curling one yet though. So I am excited for this bag! The last time they had one the contents didn't seem like stuff I would use, so I skipped it.

  8. Los Angeles has one in Downtown! But I don't want to deal with the craziness with traffic and finding parking or getting lost for this lovely beauty bag deal. Why couldn't it be located somewhere without all loaded stress?! Eh!! I am going to Disneyland instead! Thanks for the tips G! (:

  9. Is this only available in the States? I'm in Vancouver, Canada and went to two WF, the employees don't have any clue on what I'm referring to.

  10. What an awesome treat! Just picked mine up in Atlanta. The lady in the store said that each store will only get 20 bags and employees can't buy them until Monday. But the super best part.....it rang 25% off. So all these cool products for $12!!!!
    Thanks for the tip, G!
    (now hoping I'll get that concealer brush in the mail this afternoon!) :-)

  11. A quick heads up...don't wait on this one! I have 2 friends in 2 different states who both got the last bag in their store at a little past 9 ET this morning. (Rumor has it that there was a glitch and stores were selling them early.)

  12. Just got mine! So cute and such a good deal! One thing to note is that all the bags are different colors-the little tassle and the lining inside! very fun picking out your favorite color combo! The burts bees lipstick is so hydrating! I didnt get the discount, but my store gave me a free soap sample. Go get this one ladies!

  13. My two bags rang up at $11.25 each! The products are amazing and the reduced price makes them even better. Picked mine up at 9am here in AZ.

  14. I'm here in CA ( glendale exactly) and I'm pretty sure I just got the last bag ( not a fully functional zipper but come one I'll still take it!) . They told me all the stores here in CA were sold out by 830, mine was a straggler BC of the zipper. Thanks again G!!

  15. Just got my bag and they gave me an additional 25% off! Part of the beauty SE I guess. Good luck everyone!

    1. sweet! I called my local WF around 11:30am (which is in another town, 30min away) and they were able to put one on hold for me, but they said they could only put one on hold. I want to get one for my mom too, hope they aren't all sold out before I get there this evening! I was told they only have 20 bags.

  16. With everyone talking about there being plenty of these available last time, I decided to wait and try to get one later this afternoon, but after reading this morning's comments, now I'm afraid I might have missed out! There are three Whole Foods within 15 min of me (perk of living in a highly populated suburb I guess), so hopefully I'll have some luck at one of them, and if not at least I didn't have to go very far at all.

  17. I got the last bag (and the 25% discount!) at 10:30. She actually gave me the one displayed on the shelf. She said they only get 25 bags...why not more per store, I wonder?

  18. And, again, thanks, G, for all the fantastic tips! Your Stila mascara one for Ulta another great one. My favorite blog by far.

  20. I just went and I guess the 25% off applied to this bag as well because I only paid a little over $12! They also had free sample bags for the taking (no purchase necessary), which came with an assortment of around 5-7 foil packets (mine came with a mini bar of soap!) so it was definitely worth going!

  21. The Whole Foods @ Cornell Rd in Beaverton OR was down to only 3 bags by noon! I was able to get one, but whoa. . those things went fast. The sales associate said that people had been coming in asking about them. The bag itself is nice and very spacious, plus a ton of samples and a few full sized products. I think this is the best bag to date.

  22. Went to my WFs at 6 PM. I thought they would've ran out by then. And they almost did. But I managed to get the last bag - the employee was nice enough to put everything in the sample case as its own bag for me. It was for display only but since it's the last one, he just let me have it. Feeling incredibly lucky & grateful about it. And I got the cleau Concealer and brush when I got home. Talk about a great day. Both I was fortunate enough to get because of G's notifications, so thank you G!

  23. I missed out...I went this afternoon and the lady said people were lined up this morning and they sold out very early. She said the other locations in town were also sold out. Oh well, you win some you lose some. This is what I get for not being a morning person.

    1. I forgot all about it and called into the only Whole Foods in my state I'm pretty sure haha and was told they were sold out within the first hour. :(
