The beauty department at the David Jones department store in Sydney is something spectacular. The key is to be organised. This is speaking from experience of shopping at their Sydney City, Bondi Junction and Parramatta stores. I am not aware of, nor have I been beauty product shopping at other David Jones stores in Sydney.
Only quality products are enjoyed. The beauty products on stock include Glasshouse Fragrances Candles, L'Occitane, Natio, Crabtree & Evelyn, as well as Mozi products to only name a few.
Fragrances with bonus deals too
As soon as beauty product supplies are running low, I put them on my list and remind myself to shop at David Jones at strategic times.
1. Deluxe Sampler Totes
Recently I had to buy a new Glasshouse Candle, and I noticed a resurgence of these beauty sampler totes. These totes are only $19.95 with every full price beauty purchase, and they do contain over $100 worth of quality beauty products to try and enjoy; some of which you're probably already using. This is exciting, because you can purchase one of these irrespective of your beauty product spend. You can buy a full priced $5 lip balm and still qualify.
The current beauty deluxe sampler tote. Only $19.95.
I have purchased three different versions of these since September 2013. They include shampoo, soaps, candles, nail polish and cleansers to name. You receive 13 generous samples from two different selections. If you want to collect both selections, just make two separate purchases on two separate days. Totes cost more than $19.95, and a pretty David Jones shopping tote is automatically included.
2. Exclusive shopping nights
Even though these are mainly designed for David Jones American Express cardholders, however, such events as the Girls Night Out, Vogue Fashion Night Out, and their pre-Christmas events are available to all. Everyone can receive special discounts and offers on selected beauty products, however, David Jones American Express cardholders receive more value. Complimentary champagne and canapes are generally served at such times.
3. Sales periods
Watch out for the bargain tables at sales time, as some good deals on quality beauty products are enjoyed. For example, I found some quality hand cream for only $2. Unusual for David Jones.
