The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (3/11 - 3/17)

For a listing of this week's beauty sales at Ulta, Target and Kmart, please click here.

I'm baaack! This week there are lots of opportunities to save money (and even get a full-size freebie) on skincare, so if that's your thing, you're in luck!

CVS shoppers: A few of you have let me know that, after reading my Sebamed review, you tried some products and really enjoyed them. Well, if you'd like to try anything from Sebamed this week, you're in luck. All Sebamed skincare and haircare products are $12.49 with $2 Extra Bucks AND there's a coupon for $3 off any 2 Sebamed products (redeemable only at CVS). Dial body wash fans: it looks like they're making room for the new Naturals line, so this week you can get Dial body washes for $3.99 AND There's a coupon for $2 off any two Dial body washes. Final price after coupon for two body washes: $5.98. Want to try the Garnier BB Cream? It's a great week to do it since it's on sale this week for $10 AND there's a $1 off printable coupon good for any Garnier moisturizer here (lots of other Garnier skincare is on sale this week--see below--so you can use that coupon on something else if you don't want the BB cream). This is the LAST WEEK to take advantage of the CVS Cash Card promotion (spend $30 on participating items and you'll receive a Cash Card worth $10 to spend as you like at CVS). 

Rite Aid shoppers:  FREE full-size L'Oreal Youth Code Foaming Gel cleanser!! Did you see Amber's review of this product? Do you want one for free? Well all L'Oreal facial cleansers are on sale this week for $4.39, and there's a $5 off any L'Oreal Youth Code item coupon on the Video Values site right now, which means you'll get it FREE (they won't give you the difference back in cash though). AND if you spend $15 on L'Oreal Youth Code or Revitalift Clinical Repair products you get $5 +UP! If you want this product, I suggest getting to your local Rite Aid bright and early Sunday morning before they sell out (but if they're sold out when you get there, ask for a rain check but just be sure to redeem it before the Video Values coupon expires on March 31st). All Garnier skincare is BOGO1/2OFF and if you buy 3 products you get $10 +UP. Use this $1 off Garnier moisturizer coupon for an even better deal. Want to try Simple skincare? This week the moisturizers & eye products are 2/$20 with $5 +UP. Use the $2 off Video Values coupon and your final price after +UP goes down to 2/$13. OR, you can get Simple cleansers or wipes for 2/$12 and you can use the $1 off Video Values coupon to bring your final price down to 2//$11. And remember that this is the LAST WEEK to take advantage of the Buy & Save promotion: whenever you make a qualifying purchase, these purchases will add up on your receipts and when you hit $100, you'll get $20 back in +UP Rewards (they'll automatically print out on your receipt). 

Walgreens shoppers: Sally Hansen lip care, nail color and beauty tools are BOGO1/2OFF this week. If you want to buy a lip care product, be sure to print out this coupon for $2 off any Sally Hansen lip product and combine it with that sale. Schick Hydro and Hydro Silk razors are on sale for $9.99 with $4 Register Rewards, so print this $1 off coupon and your final price after rewards goes down to $4.99. Also worth noting: TRESemme haircare is $4/15 with $5 back in Register Rewards, which breaks down to just $2.50 per item after rewards.

  1. I've used the Garnier BB cream a few times and like it. It has a good texture and feel, smooths my complexion a little, and I can skip moisturizer over most of my face. I just put a little on my driest spots then the BB cream over that, and my face feels great. The only drawbacks are that it only comes in two shades, and it doesn't last all day. More like 5-6 hours. Still, it's good for when I have to go out for a couple hours and don't want to look ghastly. :)

    1. Thanks for all the great info! :)

  2. Omg, I want to try the L'Oreal cleanser!

    Thanks for the info! :)

  3. anyone have luck with that rite aid l'oreal youth code cleanser? the supervisor at my rite aid wouldn't take the VV coupon because it was more than the value of the cleanser. i kindly asked if they could lower the value of the coupon then and i'll pay the tax but she insisted no. she was trying to get me to buy it at regular price to use the coupon. any tips?

    1. I'm so sorry you couldn't get it! If it helps, so far I've heard from three readers who were able to get it w/ the coupon and two reader who had similar experiences as you. So I guess it depends on the store. :(

  4. Hey!
    Anyone happens to know where I can find the Physicians Formula Healthy Wear Powder Foundation on sale nowadays other than CVS?
    CVS is always so crowded... :S

    1. Actually, I believe this product has been discontinued (which makes me so sad I can't even begin to explain it to you!). So if you can't find it on clearance at CVS or Rite Aid, it's because it's no longer available. :(

    2. Oh no!! I just found out about the powder foundation from you when they where on sale and I fell in love with it. I can't believe it's discontinued! I bought two when they where on sale but I still dread running out :/

      Oh also when I went to the rite aid site to get the coupon it says its 5 off excluding cleansers? I'm still going to print and see if I can get the cleanser.

  5. LOL
    G. I've known for a while now (since I started reading this fantastic blog) that u love this powder so very much, and that's the reason why I wanted to give it a try!
    I think it's being replaced with a very similar product. It's in the brand's website.
    But i was kind looking for the clearance price! rsrs

    thanks for your answer!

    1. Aaaw, you are so sweet!! Can you tell me where on the PF site you saw this new product? I've been stalking the PF site for weeks now, hoping they'll release a new powder foundation but the only new powders I'm seeing are finishing, illuminating and bronzing powders. I haven't seen a new powder foundation on their site so please let me know if I missed it. Thanks a million!!

    2. Oh, I see...
      At first glance I thought that it was this one:
      But now... not so much! rsrs
      Well, now I'll never know how good it was! LOL

  6. Lurker here :) I am confused with the Rite Aid's "Buy & Save"...I noticed that the stores around my place have taken down the signs in-store for that promo, and I also noted that my most recent receipts don't show my buy & save balance anymore, so I thought this promo was over? Too bad cuz I was already at $84.00...

  7. I just stopped into Walgreens and the Organix/fx line is also BOGO.. Has anyone tried the dry oil spray from organix? I was tempted to purchase but I wanted some insight on it first

  8. I just got the new maybeline color tattoo shadows for $3.50!!!i used a target coupon $1.00 off ANY maybeline product stacked with a maybeline $1.00 off facebook coupon, the limit on the facebook coupon is 3!! and i asked a friend to print extra target coupons. the maybeline tattoo,costs about $5.89 at my target :)
    Also some walgreens are having a 50% off on rimmel products especially nail polishes, the polishes at my walgreens were reduced to $1.99 but redplum has $1.00 off coupon stack that with the sale and you can get rimmel polishes for 99 cents.
    :) hope you girls find some great deals!
