Here’s the best tip of the weekend: AVOID THE MALL… like the plague! Oh. my. goodness. I went to the mall yesterday late afternoon to get one thing at one store. It was a madhouse! The parking lot was nearly full, you could feel the raging hormones of the dressed-to-impress teens on spring break, and the sales staff was clearly overwhelmed — as was I!

No need to go to the mall to place your Clinique order today! Get FREE SHIPPING and get a FREE 1 oz. Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief (perfect for this wacky end-of-winter weather) with any $30 purchase at Just enter code BETTER at checkout.

FREE shipping from Clinique January 2, 2010

Whew! Just in time…  My base was about to run out and Clinique saved the day by offering FREE shipping all weekend! I’m so glad I don’t have to waste a morning schlepping the kids to the mall this week.

Just use code WEEKEND to get FREE shipping on anything from their site — no minimum purchase needed! Allergy tested. 100% fragrance free.

Expires: 1/3/10 at midnight


TODAY: FREE Shipping from Clinique December 18, 2009

Allergy tested. 100% fragrance free. That’s my kind of cosmetic & skin care! A fabulous email just arrived in my inbox… TODAY ONLY, Clinique is offering FREE SHIPPING on any order – no minimum purchase! Just use code DELIGHT at checkout. Remember, they have skin care lines not only for women, but for men and teens too!

This time of year it is so easy to forget that your skin still needs sun protection — but it does. Winter sun still causes skin damage, so be sure to continue to use sunscreen. Their City Block Sheer Oil-Free Daily Face Protector (in SPF 25 or 40) goes on nicely under make-up, or on its own. You’ll thank me in 20 years. 🙂

Time to refill my facial supplies through… These codes worked for me tonight! After you fill your shopping bag, go to the checkout and enter the codes toward the bottom of your personal info/billing page. You can only enter two codes and they must be separated with a comma.
