The Space NK Sample Sale March 2018 Tell-All

The Space NK Sample Sale Day 1 was madness in every way possible - the good, the bad, and the ugly. Before it even opened, there were people lined up around the block in the cold and a good deal of those people had suitcases - they were in it to win it. That attitude carried on when they were in the doors and things got a bit aggressive... women brought their boyfriends, assistants, basically anyone to clear the shelves into their baskets and depleting stock before the sale had been going on for more than 30 minutes. Anyway, here's our rundown. 

Selection: Amazing! They had so many good items that can be found in the Space NK store for full retail. The only trouble was that they didn't have a lot of specific items so when those women with the suitcases in tow ran for the products to clear out, they really did clear out everything.

Quality of Products: Products themselves are great and they had quite a selection of high-end products, but the packaging tended to be a bit beaten up. It's what's on the inside that matters, right?

Organization: Fairly easy to find things if you knew what you wanted, skincare was grouped in one area, makeup in another, hair in a separate, etc. Also, staff was definitely helpful in pointing people to the right area

Experience: ROUGH. If you like having women push you, jab you with their wire baskets so that they can get in faster, or STEALING THINGS OUT OF YOUR BASKET (YES, YOU READ THAT CORRECTLY), then all you. *Please keep in mind that this all happened after waiting in line in the cold for hours* However, for your better sanity, I think it's better to shop it with Sample Sale 212 - I mean, safety is key!

The sale is happening at 260 Sample Sale on 5th ave, but if you want to shop it the safe way, you can find it here
