I've been a big fan of Space NK for a few years now after having some fantastic experiences in store, and I thought it was about time I talked about some of my favorite things to buy, especially while they're holding a great promotion this weekend for $20 off $75. (Their website says through Monday, August 29, but Monday is the 31st...)
Two brands that I was introduced to through Space NK remain steady favorites: Goldfaden MD & African Botanics. I am a big fan of Goldfaden MD Hands to Heart, and African Botanics Pure Marula Neroli Oil and Intensive Skin Repair Balm. While these brands have begun to expand to other retailers online, I generally still shop Space NK for them!
Here are a few other, more readily available brands that I will purchase at Space NK: Diptyque, By Terry, Chantecaille, Hourglass, Laura Mercier, Oribe and Kevyn Aucoin. Why you ask, when there are plenty of other places to buy? Well, I'd like to think I shop smart, and Space NK has some great offers throughout the year, and one of my favorite rewards programs to boot.
Once you sign up, you get a lovely membership card (with your name on it!) in the mail, and every dollar spent earns you a point. At 100 points, you get $5 credited to your card. Once you have spent $1000+ in a calendar year, you get $10 for every 100! I'll also note that they have great free samples, including deluxe sizes that you typically would spend points on at other retailers. There's even a great birthday gift, which appears to be even better if you reach the higher tier of rewards!
I will note that my one disappointment with Space NK is that they have a stricter return policy than Sephora or Nordstrom, which completely prevents me from making any impulse purchases like I would at Sephora, and honestly results in me shopping at Space NK much less than I would like. (Ha! How is that even a thing?) Oh, and they don't see to get new collections quite as quickly as other retailers do.
Still, Space NK is one of my go to beauty retailers, and this promotion is seriously tempting me right now! Will you be indulging in this promotion? I'd love to know what's in your shopping cart! :)
