We are so sorry our website crashed!
The great news is, our 24-hour 50% off celebration has not yet begun! thebalm.com didn’t expect such a huge influx of orders and we underestimated the number of our dedicated fans while overestimating the capacity of our server. We’re currently upgrading our server and are told that once it’s functional we’ll be able to accommodate everyone. We are expecting this to be within the next few days and we will announce our launch here, on Facebook. Any orders placed today that received a confirmation email will be honored. If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Thanks again for your patience and understanding.
Update: the Balm tweeted they are having issues with their server. So far it is loading for me but very slowly. I’m getting images now as well but again, very slowly. See comments below as reader’s are reporting they are getting on and ordering a-ok! The 50% discount is taken off at check out. I have no info about International shipping at the moment.
Just to verify the Balm sale starts today. I got about 300 hundred e-mails telling me how it was an April Fool’s joke, how cruel it was, etc…
the Balm is really having a sale today and it really is 50% Off your total order. A few reader’s reported getting onto the site already and doing an order. Personally the site isn’t yet loading for me.
Just give it time, I imagine they are being SLAMMED at the moment.
I don’t have any other info, I don’t know how much shipping is, if they are shipping worldwide, etc…any updated info I get I promise I’ll report back.
As of now this is the image I get when loading….
Just be patient
And keep refreshing thebalm.com
Update: the Balm tweeted the server is down. Clear your cache and keep reloading. A few reader’s reported checking out ok but you can imagine they are being rushed with traffic so it is hard keeping the site up when people are trying to get on.
the Balm Instain Powder Blush is a brand new staining powder blush that will be launching on Monday WITH the new site so that means 50% Off!
You KNOW how I feel about the Balm’s blushes! Hot Mama, Cabana Boy, Frat Boy, these are all HG (holy grail) for me so the fact they introducing six new blushes, well, I’m more than a little excited.
Do you hear that? An angel got its wings…no sorry that wasn’t it. The Balm got a new website! Yeah, that’s better. No seriously, the Balm is getting a BRAND new website this Monday and to celebrate all that good news they are having a stupid outrageous sale.
I’m talking crazy.
Wanna know what the sale is?
Come here, lend your ear, I gotta whisper it.
50% Off your total order!
Yes, 50 freaking percent off your entire purchase. Slay me! We can haul one of everything and have lunch money left over.
Now…I don’t think they’ll be a code, it’ll basically be discount taken at check out from my understanding. You might want to start making your wishy lists early though so you’re prepared for Monday!
The sale will be at thebalm.com (site is down now but will be back up soonish).
En Root is a new hair care collection launching soon from the Balm. The Balm En Root will be a selection of shampoos, conditioners, and styling treatments infused with Bamboo Extracts, Rice Proteins, and Vitamins A, C, and E.
I find this entire launch incredibly interesting! It’s so outside the norm of the Balm’s color cosmetics…! And suddenly, hair care! W00t!
I want to try!
Take a look!
