Drugstore Beauty Week of 1/18-1/24

   The drugstores ALWAYS have revolving beauty deals which is the best time to get yourself new products to try or pick up replacements for items you already love. This is how I save money on drugstore brands because after sales, coupons, and store credit I can score some stuff for pretty cheap or even free...what I call "Couponing for Cosmetics."
 
   This is going to be a pretty quick post that I do weekly, usually it will go up Sunday or Monday but with the long weekend I got a little behind.  Where I live there is CVS & Walgreens, therefore I will not typically be posting about Rite Aid.

CVS:
   -Almost every brand is on sale this week for BOGO 1/2 off (which is buy 1 and get the 2nd half off)! This includes Revlon, Loreal, NYX, Milani, Almay, Covergirl, Sally Hansen and more. Make sure to grab an ad at the front of the store when you walk in and also scan your CVS card at the coupon machine.
   -When you spend $15 on select hair care, cosmetics, lotions, & personal care you get back a $5 Extra Buck. What's an Extra Buck? It will print on the bottom of your receipt and you use it just like cash at CVS on anything you want (minus alcohol, lottery, gift cards, etc.). In the ad it does say that this deal of spend $15 & get $5 is a limit of 2, but it is actually a month long deal with a limit of 10.
   -If you are in need of any of these type of products CVS is your best bet! Make sure to get a CVS card and register it online (at cvs.com) and also join the beauty club because for every $50 in beauty retail you will get back $5 Extra Bucks.

WALGREENS:
   -Same as CVS, there are a ton of brands that are BOGO 1/2 off this week, but most are not giving back store rewards.
   -Loreal Skin Care is 20% off
   -FREE Bare Foot Diabetic Foot Balm, this is found in the diabetic aisle & not with the other lotions. This is on sale for $3.50 and you will get back a $3.50 Register Reward which will print at the end of your transaction. You can use it on almost anything in the store just like cash.
   -There have been orange tags popping up, which means CLEARANCE! Make sure to take a walk down the cosmetic aisles and see if you spot a good deal.

COUPONS:
   -I always use coupons at the drugstore to get an even better deal. I will link the coupon database below which will also tell you if there are printable coupons available for different brands.
Coupon Database

2). Type in the search bar what brand you're looking for. Example, if you are wanting Loreal coupons, simply type Loreal in the search box and then hit enter.
3).  It will tell you all the coupons available for the specific brand. If they are printable you'll be able to click on the link and it will take you to the coupon.
