Sale Alert: Fruits & Passion (Canada) + New Subscription Box

I don’t normally post sales from Fruits & Passion, who are kind of like a French Canadian Bath & Body Works, but I hauled a little bit from them this morning and it is related to a review I posted yesterday for Jelly Pong Pong’s most disappointing Lychee Shower Gel.

Their sales this weekend (both in-store and online) include:

  • Refill Event: Buy 2 refills for $40 (normally $28.50 each) or 3 refills for $50
  • Electric Fragrance Diffuser & Perfume Refills for Electric Fragrance Diffusers: 3 for $24 (reg. $31.50 each)
  • Moisturizing Butters: 5 for $20
  • Foaming Hand Soaps: 3 for $20
  • Assorted travel sizes: 5 for $20
  • Assorted items: 3 for $20

Plus, get 5% cashback with eBates Canada (referral link). Shipping in Canada is free when you spend $45 or more.

The only drawback with shopping online is that their selection seems a bit poor, but I don’t have access to any physical locations, so I don’t have a choice. They used to have a location in the nearby Eaton Centre downtown, but it’s been closed for some time now.

So what did I haul from Fruits & Passion? It turns out they have a line of lychee-scented products being clearanced (dammit!). I managed to snag a travel-sized body scrub, woohoo! I would actually have bought a couple more, but I don’t know what it smells like or how good the body scrub is, so I decided against gambling.

My haulage:

Incidentally, I also noticed on Fuits & Passion’s website that they are trying to get in on the subscription box craze, and are offering their own Passion Box at $39 per monthly box, which is to contain $70 worth of products. A sample, one-time box is available for $45. I don’t know, I feel like that’s an awful lot to spend on bath & body & kitchen products! I’d be much more willing to spend $15 for $25 worth of products. One benefit is that they will allow you to piggyback other products from their online store with your monthly box, to take advantage of the free shipping. Anyway, thought it was interesting to have another Canadian option!

Do you have any Fruits & Passion favorites? I still have a really old eau de toilette from them that is long discontinued, but I love it! The shops always smell so amazing, with all the different scents mingling together.

Fruits & Passion is a bath & body company that remains eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and (I believe) vegan. It was founded in 1992 and is based in Brossard, QC, Canada. The company was purchased by Wisconsin, US-based S.C. Johnson in 2008; in 2013, S.C. Johnson agreed to sell the company to South Korean cosmetics retailer The Face Shop (which is in turn owned by conglomerate LG Corp.). The Face Shop proceeded to convert most of the Fruits & Passion locations into The Face Shop locations, which is why it has lately become difficult to find Fruits & Passion locations in Canada—apart from in Québec.
