When reader Anne left her comment on the You Tell Me page yesterday morning about how she spotted Puristics skincare products at her local Big Lots for $2 each, I knew I had to get over to mine and see if I could find them. I've had my eye on this new-ish skincare line for a few months since I first spotted the line at Rite Aid (I think they're also at CVS and Walgreens). These products can retail for up to $20 at the drugstore (they're $15.99 each on the Puristics website) so for $2 at Big Lots? Heck yes!
Bingo! I spotted them at my Big Lots and they had three products:

Since, like Anne, I like daytime moisturizers with a higher SPF than 15, I only purchased the Night Recovery Cream and Intensive Eye Treatment (more on that in a bit).
Remember the other day when I posted about the Holiday 2012 limited edition Yardley soaps landing at Walgreens? Well I totally didn't expect to find these at Big Lots (the LE Holiday soaps usually surface after the holidays at my local Big Lots) but I found them:
I actually wasn't too impressed with Honey Vanilla Creme (bummer!) but I LOVED Sugar Plum Blossom. In fact, as I was carrying it around in the store with me, I kept getting whiffs of it and it was so delightful that I ended up buying three of them (two to keep in my sock drawers and one to use). I love putting yummy-smelling soaps in my dresser drawers...it's such a nice surprise every time I open a drawer.
Another surprise was that my Big Lots also had LAST year's LE soaps from Yardley (Holiday 2011):
Holiday 2011 Yardley Limited Edition Soaps in Vanilla Sugar and Winter Spice
Over in the makeup aisle I was surprised to see some Nutra Nail Gel Perfect Polishes (these retail for $11.99 each at my local Rite Aid):
And in addition to the usual Maybelline, L'Oreal, Revlon, etc. cosmetics I'm used to seeing at my Big Lots, I also spotted some CoverGirl liquid foundations and True Blend loose powders:
I love that these products come in sealed boxes and pump bottles. I can't wait to give them a try.
This soap--I just can't explain how yummy it smells:
Thanks for reading! Have you scored some great beauty deals at your local Big Lots lately? I'd love to hear all about it in the comments!
And thanks again, Anne, for the fantastic heads-up about the Purisitics products popping up at Big Lots!
