    Default Check out the Elizabeth Arden vending machine





    This weekend, I was dodging the crazy crowds at a shopping center in San Francisco. As I was on my way out, I ran across this large Elizabeth Arden vending machine. Selling items through vending machines is nothing new in the tech world, and for that matter, it's pretty common in Japan. But this is the first time I've seen beauty products being sold in this manner.
    The vending machine was stocked with Intervene Eye, Prevage night cream, fragrances, and gift sets. (No sign of color cosmetics, though.) You could shop through a touch-screen, bypassing the beauty counter completely. Although a few dudes were curious about the giant beauty machine, most women looked at it and walked right by. I think this is probably more of a marketing tactic than a way to actually boost sales, but who knows? Tell me, would you buy your beauty products from a vending machine?

    I would rather buy from a vending machine than the snotty bitches behind the counter.

    No. Most cosmetics/creams do poorly when exposed to cold...and a vending machine is exposed to cold, damp AND smog.

    They sell Proactiv (the acne wash) in a similar vending machine at a mall nearby. It's indoors and near those little carts/kiosks that you see in several malls.

    I was just going to say this! We has a Proactive vending machine that I'm actually thinking of purchasing a kit from in the near future. I think it's convienint and it takes away the sales people, which takes pressure off the shopper.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    I actually don't mind so much the snotty, bitchy sales clerks cuz then I'd just walk away but I can get suckered easily if they're pushy so yea I like this idea!

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.
