CVS Haul (1.30.2012)
Hey everyone! There have been really good sales this week at both CVS and RiteAid. You will be seeing my RiteAid haul right after this one, once I am done typing it up. I went to both stores yesterday and came back with some goodies! You know, I never try leaving a store without buying something. LOL I feel like its just a waste of gas if I don't buy something. I am going to separate my CVS haul from my RiteAid haul because I don't want to get anybody confused with the sales and going to the wrong store. LOL
Okay, I wasn't going to go to CVS this week because I didn't want to spend money but I had some extra ECBs that were going to expire and I wanted to get some good use out of them. Throwing away ECBs is sort of like throwing away money. Plus they were having a great sale that if you bought $30 worth of Revlon products, you get $10ECBs! So it was sort of like spending $20, plus if you had manufacturer coupons, it would make the deal even better!! I went in looking for the Revlon Lip Butters but the store that I went to didn't have any! I was like, "What?!" I asked the lady at the cosmetic counter and she said that they haven't received them yet. Seriously? I asked when she was going to receive them but she didn't know when. Darn! I went to that CVS store for nothing but I couldn't walk out empty handed! Good thing too because CVS was having a great deal on their other products!
Right now, for this week, if you spend $10 on Physicians Formula products, you get $7ECBs back. So if you bought something that was $9.99, after getting the ECBs back, its sort of like you paid $3 plux tax! Even better, on some of the products, there are $3 off coupons! So it makes it practically FREE! If you find the coupons, its like paying $7 plus tax (if you buy a product that is around $9.99) and you get back $7ECBs!! I hope I explained everything alright. It might be confusing. If you have any questions, you can comment below and I'll try my best to answer them. Its only limit one per card. I wanted both the new lipgloss and the blush but since I had to choose I bought the blush because I love me some blushes!
Also, another great sale this week at CVS is on WnW products! Right now, they are 40% off! I know that WnW products are already inexpensive but I love saving money, so I couldn't help myself to some extra products. LOL They also have a sale on their American Greeting cards. Buy 3, get $3ECBs! So its sort of like just paying tax if you get the cards that are $0.99 instead of the regular price ones.
Okay, onto what I bought:
❀Skintimate SkinTherapy Shaving Cream (x2)
I bought the ones for sensitive skin. I wanted the ones in the pink packaging but the CVS store that I went to just had these two. There were only four left but I didn't know if I was going to have enough money so I only took two with me to the register. After buying everything, I had some extra money and went back to the aisle to grab the last two but they were gone. That was fast! I guess somebody came while I was in line and bought the last two. Darn! These are $4.19 and for a limited time, there are having an unadvertised sale on these. If you buy one, you get $4ECBs back, so its sort of like paying $0.19 plus tax for one. Its limit one per transaction so I had to do two seperate transactions.
❀John Frieda Salon Precise Foam Coverage
I had a coupon for a free product that was expiring today so I wanted to use it. I got the one in the shade 4R Dark Red Brown. I have been wanting to dye my hair in this reddish brown color. Plus I think it will go really well with my fair skin! Hopefully all goes well the first time I do it and the shade goes well with my skintone! I am going to be dying my hair maybe next month so wish me luck! LOL
❀Physicians Formula pHmatchmaker pH Powdered Blush
This is such an interesting blush! It claims to react to light and your pH for the perfect blushing glow for your cheeks! It also claims to stay the same color while you are in indoors and outdoors. Plus it instantly matches your skin in 60 seconds. To tell you the truth, I didn't really care about all that. I just wanted it because the compact lights up!!! I have already opened it and gave it a try! Its so cute! I am a little bit dissappointed that they didn't put that much product in here but I love the lights. I can't wait to use this on a night out and show it off! LOL I bought this for $4-$5 after ECBs and using the $3 off coupon that was on the actual product. I plan on getting the lipgloss next, which also has lights on the inside of the cap!! The blush that I bought is in the shade, Natural. I was going to get it in the shade, Rose but I have another blush with that name from their Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush line. I didn't know if the two shades are similar because they have the same names and I didn't see any swatches beforehand so I went on the safe side.
❀WnW MegaShield Lip Color SPF 15 (x2)
Apparently WnW came out wth a new line called MegaShield. With the sale this week, I thought it was the perfect time to try try out! I haven't tried these out yet but I have heard from a couple of blogs that these are pretty creamy and pigmented. I bought 370S Lolly Popstar and 369S Salsa Lessons. Lolly Popstar is a very vibrant fushcia pink while Salsa Lessons is a bright red. These had $1 off coupons on the actual lipsticks. So with the 40% off sale, these were $1.80 and with the coupon, I only paid about $0.80 each plus tax!!
❀WnW Wild Shine Nail Polish
This was also 40% off. I can't remember the exact price after the 40% off but regular price, it was $0.99 plus tax. I bought it in the shade 435G Sparkled. I just love the name of this polish. LOL Its a glitter polish. Its not like the One Coat Glitter nail polishes from Milani. If I wanted to just wear this polish, I would probably need more than 2 coats to get my whole nail covered with glitter.
❀American Greetings cards (x3)
These cards were on sale at CVS. If you buy three of these at $0.99 each, then you get $3ECBs back. To get the best deal out of this, make sure to get the cards that are priced $0.99 each. Plus you can only do this deal once per card.
❀Reese's Peanut Butter Egg
This was also on sale. Its $0.87 and you get $0.87ECBs back. Plus its candy so you don't pay tax so its kind of getting it for FREE. Today is the last day for this deal. After today, these will be 2/$1 and no ECBs. If you do get this today, make sure to check your receipt and check if you got the ECBs for it. My store didn't give it to me and I had to go back in and tell them. They gave me grief on it and I had to show them the advertisement and they just looked at the picture and said that I bought the wrong one. I told them to read the actual description because there are different varities selected and mines was included so they had to give it to me. So make sure! Plus it was delicious. I shared half with my little brother and its so good! Sorry I didn't take a separate picture of this. My brother and I ate it because we couldn't wait any longer. LOL You can still see it in my first picture above.
So that is all for my haul! I saved a lot of money and I am so happy with all the products that I bought, especially with the Physicians Formula blush. I love how it lights up! I wish that there were little mini lights all around the mirror but there are only two lights, one on each side of the mirror. That's fine because they are very bright! So I hope you all like my haul! If you guys wanted to try out the new products from Physicians Formula, I recommend going right now before all the good products are gone and before all the $3 coupons are taken!
Have you guys ever tried any of these products? What do you think about the new products from Physicians Formula and WnW? Are there any that you would love to get your hands on?
