Since I've been under the weather this week and wasn't able to do my usual Weekly Drugstore Sales posts, my pal Lisa of Drugstore Divas was kind enough to lend a hand and keep Nouveau Cheap readers in-the-know about some great beauty-related deals going on this week. Friends are amazing, aren't they? Right when I thought I could never catch up, Lisa swooped in and offered to do a round-up for us. Take it away, Lisa!
Hi! Lisa from Drugstore Divas here. I was so sad to hear that G. is under the weather. I know when I'm sick, blogging is one of the last things on my mind. Something I also don't think about when I'm ill: shopping. So, a little lightbulb went off in my head and I asked G. if it was okay if I did this week's weekly drugstore makeup sales. She said sure, so here we are.
CVS shoppers: The great Revlon polish deal got even better, so we have to start with that. All Revlon polish is on sale for $4.79 -- and yes, I mean all. Even the bottles that retail for $8.99 and more in my store [[really, who pays that much?]]. These bottles are giving back $3 in ecb. But, even better, many people [[myself included]] are reporting that a $3 Revlon cosmetics CRT is printing for them. And there a new $1/1 Revlon nail polish coupon that I found in my local CVS. Still with me? Buy one polish at $4.79, use the $3 CRT and the $1/1 manufacturer's coupon, pay $.79 and get back $3 ecb. That's a $2.21 moneymaker! And this is limit of six.
Also going on at CVS this week is a CoverGirl deal where you can get $3 back in ecb when you buy $10 worth. There was a $1/1 coupon from this Sunday's P&G, so that'll lower your out of pocket. Sally Hansen products BOGO50% off and are part of the buy $30 get a $10 gift card deal. Coupons.com put out a $2 off Sally Hansen lip product coupon. Your out of pocket is gonna vary on this one, but, just as an example: the cheapest item at my store is the Moisture Twist, which is $5.79. Two will be $8.65, minus two $2 printables, and you're looking at $4.65 for two, or $2.34 each [[less than half price! Love it!]].
Walgreens shoppers: There is a coupon on the back cover of the ad that makes wet n wild megalast nail color a mere $.99 cents. The limit is three [[unless you live in NM, where there is no limit -- lucky!]]. You do need the coupon on the back of the sales flier to get the deal, so pick one up when you're in the store if you recycled yours already.
I know this isn't exactly beauty related [[although, white teeth are beautiful]], but Colgate Total Advanced toothpaste is $3 and giving back $3 in Register Rewards when you buy one, so it's free. If you've come to Drugstore Divas, you know I hate paying for toothpaste, so this is a good time to stock up. My friend Sheryl from The Centsable Shoppin let me know that EOS shave gel is supposed to be on sale for $2.49 and there are $2 peelies on the PINK cans at the register, making these $.49.
Rite Aid shoppers: CoverGirl items are BOGO50%, so you can use the P&G coupon we mentioned up in the CVS portion. Your final price will vary. Olay is BOGO50% off, and there's a nice $2 off Olay bar coupon in the P&G. I'm not sure how much this retails for in Rite Aid [[I didn't get to check, sorry!]], but it's under $3 in Walmart, so you might have some free soap.
There are a ton of in-ad coupons, but the best one I saw was the $3 off Sally Hansen beauty tools coupon. Check the price on nail clippers and nail files. These are usually under $4 [[although prices will vary by region]], so you're looking at $1 or so for beauty tools.
There's also a coupon for $3 off Softlips [[limit 1 per person]]. These are supposed to be $1.99, so if you pick up two at $3.98, it's $.98 for two after the coupon. That's a nice price for this stuff.
Dollar General shoppers: Okay, I know Dollar General isn't a drugstore, but G. mentioned the new KISS nails coupons, so I had to tell you how to put them to good use. My friend Sarah at Sarah's Deals told me that Kiss artificial nails, 24 pack, are on sale for $1 at Dollar General. Use the $1 printable, and these are free. If you see anything I've missed, please point it out in the comments.
And, if you'd like to wish our lovey G. a "Get Better Soon" wish, feel free to do that in the comments as well. Happy drugstore shopping!
Thanks SO much, Lisa! This was SO helpful and MUCH appreciated!
