Drugstore Diva: Walgreens Beauty Box – Get More From the Drugstore…

We are always talking about resolutions for the New Year, not all of them stick.  One of mine is always saving money.  I know there are plenty of you out there that love to save (who doesn’t, right?) To that end, you know that I’m a HUGE fan of being a Drugstore Diva…there are SO many products that can be found in the aisles of your nearest drugstore.  PLUS, they are no longer the dimly lit cavernous relics they used to be either.  They are well lit and well stocked with products both affordable and masstige products and guides to help you along the way.  One such mecca is Walgreens. I haven’t seen a Walgreens since I was a teenager in St. Louis county.  Since then, they have expanded and TRUST me they have changed!

Walgreens Box2

They have this new gift with purchase program called a Beauty Box (which I love….there is nothing better than getting some great deluxe samples when you make a purchase!) In the box will be some of this season’s hottest beauty finds, expert advice and more than $15 in coupons! This month they will have some exclusive coupons that are different than ones in the past AND supplies are limited so act fast!  To get your box you’ll need to spend $30 or more on beauty products. You will have no problem doing that either!  With a great selection and loads of great options you will be hard pressed not to find some great buys.

My favorite thing to do in the drugstore is explore new skincare brands.  There are SEVERAL that have some of the exact same ingredients as the high-end limes (I’m talking EXACTLY the same so you are getting quality for less). Major brands that you know and love all have amazing deals on skincare that will not only leave your face radiant….but your wallet will still be in tact!

In every Walgreens store, there are Beauty Advisors that are trained to provide customer solutions. You can talk to them in store and they will help you to understand differences in certain products, latest nail trends, tips & tricks of making fragrances last, receiving best at home hair coloring results and many more.  It’s like having your own personal shopper!!

Make sure to check out the Walgreens Beauty Within page for more information and get shopping! These beauty boxes are only available while supplies last!

Shop Pretty!!
