Korres old is the new offering
# 370-241 Guava 4-piece Hydration Set was the todays special back in late Aug or the start of Sept 2014.
Limited edition, collectors item, never to be repeated again EVER.
It never sold out & has remained on the web.
As of yesterday, when you clicked the video of the product, you still still saw the original today special video with Shannon & Liz.
The product ( in the special packaging) never sold out last year. It’s been available ever since.
So yesterday, 5/29/15, I see it’s being offered on TV, again with a slight twist~~ Liz & Host are both saying that this is NEW product that has been put in the limited edition packaging that was retired back in 2014.
Evidently, Liz tell us, the world renowned artist who was commissioned to design the packaging in 2014, READS the hsn reviews & "was so moved he agreed to MAKE another small quantity". Somewhere, I believe the number I heard was 500…don’t quote me. Seriously ? Liz goes so far as to tell the viewers that she brought her OWN "limited gift box with product inside" from home. She said she was afraid that hsn wouldn’t have samples to show because they sold out last time. And she said she has not used her products because they are limited edition collectibles.
Today, 5/30/15, the original 2014 video is gone & replaced with a new video of the live show on TV yesterday. BUT, you can still see the old original video of the #372-054- Guava Hydrating Shower Gel Duo (in the special packaging)…that was from the Aug. or Sept 2014 todays special.
MY questions are based on the product never selling out since it has remained available on line.
1) WHY would additional product be made & offered in the limited edition packaging 9-10 months later,
when the original quantity never sold out?
The packaging was originally sold as a limited edition, collectors item…..
"Once it’s gone, it’s gone, not making any more because it’s limited" -LIZ .
"Retiring the issue after today" -SHANNON.
2) How does repeating the above mentioned packaging impact the value of the product/packaging sold last year ?
3) What happened to all the "old or original" product that never sold from the todays special -2014?
4) The World renowned artist in Greece, seriously he is reading reviews ?
I love this line & my entire family uses it. I have left countless positive, raving reviews & comments about the products.
I highly recommend the products. I gift the products to family & friends.
When the limited edition package was first launched with all the hype, I thought it was amusing at best.
Who is going to buy this & never use it just to keep the "lovely" plastic tube & plastic bottle?
NOT Me… I cut my body butter tubes up to get all the product out!
Sell the product, not the packaging. AND epic fail…. it never sold out because it’s been on the web page ever since.
So I guess I’m having a hard time believing that they brought in more new product, in old 2014 limited edition packaging,
that they can’t get rid of.
Now I am apprehensive about my order. I ordered 2 sets as gifts. I am hesitant to give
as gifts if they are old products and possibly rancid. I can’t check it if it has a seal. I watched the presentation and she was very clear about the artist making a small supply for this visit. I am hoping one of the moderators will jump in and verify they are fresh products.
I’ve always been an avid Korres shopper and that explains my stash. But I have to admit it’s getting to be same old stuff different show with me. I doubt I’ll place an order any time soon. I recall the ts with the "lovely artwork that’s a collectors item". I don’t know about anyone else but I don’t buy something for the container especially a plastic tube that gets tossed out. And before I toss it I cut it open to get all the product out too. The sell is getting to be a bore.
I too have been doing some ‘hmmm….’ over this as well.
Not leaving me with a good feeling.
Just the facts ma’am works better for me than pushing some artists awful looking packaging.
Why didn’t they just tell it like it really is?
Luv Korres,Just ordered the 3 piece set in the Jasmine yesterday my Very FAV & just received more PMango this month & Guava….my Hubby likes.top 3
Hummm, this is interesting I also doubt that they brought in new product. I really like their products I don’t like this selling spiell.
zuzuspetals…. i hope you are feeling ok?
i ask because a selling spiel is just that. nothing more.
