  1. WOW!!! Thank you for this-- I don't live anywhere near a Barneys so all of these amazing online gifts have made it so easy for me to place an order and get all sorts of extra goodies! I am so excited-- thanks for all of your hard work! Now I am going to make my list of must-haves and will be placing a big online order! Is this event twice a year every year?

    1. Hi there! You are so welcome! Yes, the online Love Yourself Bag Event is truly extraordinary! The Barneys Love Yourself Bag Event is one of my very favorite events of all time, and trust me there is nowhere that I spend more money each year! Yes, Love Yourself happens twice a year! Keep checking the link that I provided because the lovely people of Barneys update the gifts with purchase page often-- so you may find all sorts of new goodies appearing! Enjoy! Keep me posted on what treasures you end up getting!

  2. So good to be true! Now I also want the Eve Lom, by Terry and the Diptyque step up gifts! AAAAHHHHH!

    1. Hi wefadetogray! It's so convenient to have it right at your fingertips too! The online gifts are really awesome! I could definitely do some serious damage here! <3

    2. You always make me want to buy more things that I wasn't even thinking about buying-LOL!

  3. Hi! I love your blog. It is a wonderful resource. I actually stopped by the SF BNY today to participate in this event for the first time. When I got home, I noticed my gift bag was missing a LOT of the items from the photo you posted. Is this typical for Barney's to decrease the number of gifts than advertised? Should I return to the sales rep to inquire further?

    1. Hi Julia! Thank you-- that is so kind of you to say, and so very appreciated! The contents of the gift bag often differ, and some of the things in the stock picture released by Barneys are substituted with other things as they run through so many of these gift bags and the samples inside. I often end up with a bag that looks a bit different. They go through such a high volume of inventory during the event that the bags at the beginning of the event (pre-sale and on the first day) often more closely resemble the stock image. I waited until the last minute to give my SA my order (and I usually pre-order) so I am quite sure that when I pick up my gift bag that it will vary from the stock photo as well. This is pretty normal-- especially when one waits until the end of the event. If it were me I wouldn't do anything because Barneys employees have often told me to shop the event early because things sell out, and also that the bag contents can vary. Of course it is totally up to you. Were the missing items substituted with other items or did you just have far fewer samples? :-)

    2. I just counted - I am short 9 items from the stock photo. =(

      Thanks for your fast reply! You are such an incredible help to me, especially since I'm new to BNY's big beauty event.

    3. Hi Julia, If I had to guess I would assume that since you made your purchase late in the game that your bag may reflect that. Vendors supply the contents of the bags and they do run out. Also if a particular line is not sold at a particular store there is a good chance that they were not provided to that location by the vendor (or so someone told me long long ago). The SF store is one of the smaller stores and doesn't have all of the same vendors as the bigger stores-- so that may be part of it. Of course if you are really upset then call and speak to the sales associate who you worked with and ask him/her if is normal that you are missing so many things that were in the stock photo on the Barneys website. I will say, however, that everyone that I work with at Barneys from the sales associates, reps, and managers at the store level to the highers up at Madison Ave tell me the same thing-- that the contents of the bags may vary. It really makes a big difference to pre-order before the event begins so that you are assured that they still have the products that you want to buy, the line step-up gifts, and the bags that were packed earlier when all of the samples were in abundant supply. The Love Yourself bag event is such a huge deal because of all of the gifts that people wait to make many of their beauty purchases during this time . As I said before, I usually pre-order everything quite early, but this time I really dragged my feet and when I finally figured out what I wanted I learned that the thing that I wanted the most had already sold-out at the Beverly Hills location (because of pre-sales)-- luckily she was able to track one down at another store.

      I'm so glad that I was helpful to you! Like I said, if you are really feeling bugged then call your sales associate and make a pleasant inquiry. Just let her/him know that you are a Love Yourself newbie, and when you compared your first bag to the stock picture you noted that you were missing lots of things. That or let it go and so what I will do next year-- and pre-order what I want. It also makes a very big difference to forge a relationship with your SA by continually working with the same person-- it makes a big difference. They will notify you of upcoming events, facials, gifts, and generally will be more generous with samples. Keep me posted. I do hope that you are loving what you bought! I can do serious damage in the beauty department at Barneys (and I do). Have a nice weekend!

  4. I placed an online order this weekend and received it this afternoon. There was no gift at all included. I understand that there are limited quantities available; however, I find it very disingenuous that Barneys continued to show the gift online as available if it had in fact "sold" out. I have emailed them with my inquiry, but I don't expect that they will do anything to address this. The perk of free shipping and returns is that I can just pack it back up and send it back. :) I don't spend this kind of money without getting samples of new products. Looking forward to receiving my package from Space NK.

    On the VERY positive side, two of the items that I ordered from Barneys were based on the amazingly spot on recommendations from your blog - the Colbert MD Illumino Face Oil and the Radical Skincare eye cream. For anyone on the fence about the eye cream, I have never seen such quick results from an eye cream in my 49 years. I, too, have milia under my eyes, and after only a week of using the product, they were almost gone! Thank you sooo much for your hard work that helps everyone find products that are totally worth the price.

    1. Hi Stephanie,

      You should call the customer service number and email them! If the gift went into your gift basket then you should have received it!! You should be able to talk to someone who can fix the problem for you!

      This is what I found on their website from this link:

      I would definitely follow up, and I don't blame you for being very disappointed not to have received what you expected.

      I am so glad to hear that you are loving the Colbert MD Illumino and the Radical Skincare eye cream!! Aren't they utterly amazing?! I am so smitten with both of those products! As you know from experience, as do I, finding a nourishing eye cream that doesn't provoke milia is no small feat! I am so in love with that eye cream, and am just thrilled to hear that you feel the same way!

      Thank you for your very kind words, and please keep me posted!

    2. I can't wait to hear what you think about your SpaceNK GWP!! It's really so fantastic!

    3. The SpaceNK gift is so luxurious that it's hard to believe it's for real. I can only imagine the relationships that this company must have with the brands that they carry given the sizes of the samples that we received. I feel almost guilty... for lack of a better word... for receiving so much for simply purchasing products that I love and would buy anyway. What an amazing gift for only a $250.00 purchase! They even sent a separate bag with 3 additional samples, similar to what I receive from Sephora, along with my order!

      Thank you again for all that you do. I have only shopped at SpaceNK overseas, so if you hadn't posted about the event, I would have never known about it. From here forward, I will be saving up all my Hourglass, By Terry, Colbert MD, and Radical Skincare purchases only for Space NK events! :)

    4. Hi Stephanie, I agree the SpaceNK gift is unbelievably luxurious and generous. I love that they sent you an additional bag with 3 more samples! Nothing like an extraordinary gift like that to make one a loyal customer! I imagine that the companies who work with SpaceNK treasure being among the few carefully edited lines carried by SpaceNK. I also would bet that they know SpaceNK customers always splurge during the two big bag events that they have each year, and sweeten the deal by including such amazing gifts!

      Thank you so much for your kind words of appreciation-- it truly means a great deal to me! I'm so glad you are loving the Colbert MD Illumino Face Oil and the Radical Skincare Eye Cream!

      Did you ever get through to Barneys, and did they send you the gift bag? I sure hope that they did! :-)
