Frustrated because you can’t find Boots No7 Restore & Renew Beauty Serum? Join the club.
While Boots No7′s Restore and Renew has been sold out all all over the country, it’s coming back on July 18th…but not necessarily to a store near you.
On July 18, Restore & Renew will be available at 8:00 AM EST at the CVS/pharmacy on 630 Lexington Avenue (at 53rd Street) in New York City. If you’re a makeup moxie in Manhattan, don’t plan on buying a gallon of this stuff, there’s a two-bottle limit per customer.
Why all the hype about Boots No7 Restore & Renew? Ever since the BBC reported on scientific findings that Boots No7 Protect and Perfect fights skin damage as effectively as doctor-prescribed Tretinoin (also known as retinoic acid, which is the active ingredient used in Retin-A), Boots No7′s “miracle” serum quickly sold out in the U.K.
After The Today Show picked up the story, Boots No7 Restore & Renew, the American version of this product, quickly sold out all over the U.S.
If you’re really dying to get your hands on Restore & Renew, you have a few options:
(1) Show up in New York next week and get in line ;)
(2) Join the bidding war on eBay and compete to pay an inflated price. Restore & Renew retails for $21.99. As of today (07/11/07 — 3:30 PM PST), auctions for Restore & Renew are pushing upwards of about $70. While there are a few current top bids for less than this, those particular auctions won’t end for several days.
(3) Get on the waiting list to be notified when this serum is available in stores and online. To sign up for the waiting list, visit http://www.boots.com.
