  1. The wax melts at Walgreens are AMAZING! I love the melon one.

    1. Oh, thank you!! Are the scents pretty strong? I hate it when I burn a tart and I can't smell it unless I put my nose right up next to the warmer. You know what I mean? Thanks!!

    2. G, have you tried the better homes and gardens/ scentsationals melts from Walmart? They are amazing! They make my entire apartment smell wonderful!

  2. My husband bought several scents, but I'm not sure if they are the exact ones you mentioned.. our look like ice cubes, I've always heard "tarts" as the ones that look like little pies. Anyhow, they were OK. Smell nice, but do not last very long, maybe 2 days. Walmart sells some that we prefer, they have a much stronger scent and last longer as well, about 3-4 days before I can't smell them anymore. They change selection during the seasons.. and the recent ones for winter included a rose scent that is just fantastic. I went back and bought six packs. Last summer they had a "tropical salsa" scent that was amazing as well, a mix of pinapple, mango, etc.. with a little kick of cilantro at the end. Sounds weird, smells fantastic.

  3. The new neutrogena moisturesmooth color sticks were on sale for $5.99 at my walgreens even though its not in the sale ad.

    1. Those are amazing too. My favorite is the soft plum color. :)

  4. Alot of the winter smells at Walmart were only 50¢

  5. Hi! Would I be able to mix and match brands during the BOGO 50% off sale at Rite Aid if both brands are holding that sale? (Such as a Loreal mascara and a Maybelline lipstick) Thanks :)

  6. Thanks so much for all of the deals!

  7. hi lovely! i stopped into CVS today to pick up my foundation from Almay and take advantage of the $4 extra care bucks but didn't get any :( my item waste clearance, and me and the cashier couldn't figure it out. did i do something wrong?

    also took advantage of the Milani bogo 1/2 and grabbed a amber nectar illuminating powered which i adore and brow kit!
