Estee Lauder will be giving away 250000 samples of Advanced Night Repair tomorrow 07/23 from 5PM - 9 PM at the Estee Lauder Counter.
I must say that, while I know this is a wicked lovely deal, and I know my mantra is always "if it's free, it's for me" I am not overly excited about this one. I realize that some of you may be huge Estee Lauder users, and I acknowledge that they are a a trustworthy, established company, but, nothing about their products appeals to me.
That's just me, so please for those of you die hard EL fans, don't take it personally, it's just that, well, ok, it's because my mother wears it, and my grandmother, too, for that matter. Everything about the Estee Lauder Counter reminds me of them, that distinctive (some may say signature) fragrance, the classic (another word for boring, in this case) colors; it's all so matronly.
Now, don't get me wrong, I love my mother (I don't always like her, but I certainly love her, sorry mom), and Gramma is great (although she can drive me absolutely crazy, but what is family for, right?), but do I want to wear what they wear? no, not really.
Next time, I'm looking in the mirror complaining about these little wrinkles that pop up overnight, and must belong to someone else, because I'm clearly not old enough to have these issues, at that moment, I'm sure I'll regret the decision I am about to make, and I'm sure I will wish I had tried this overnight repair, but right now, I know that someone else might really want the sample (someone that doesn't have issues with "signature" fragrances.)
So, with that said, I will pass on this giveaway, and leave my free sample to someone else. So, tomorrow, when you're standing in line (visions of the Clinique/Lancome class action giveaway lines awhile back) when you're standing in line think of me, and how I gave up my spot, just so you could have back some of your very important time, and be a step closer to getting your free sample that I hope you will absolutely enjoy.
Oh! and don't tell my mom, cause she'll wonder why I didn't just get the sample for her, and then she'll tell Gramma, and then...
