The following sale info has been obtained from national circulars. I do my best to recap sales that are happening in ALL regions of the United States, but certain sales vary from region to region. Also, you may live in an area that does not run national sales. If you do not see these sales in your area, check with your local store manager for more details.

Did I miss any hot beauty deals this week? If so, please leave a comment below and fill us in (and thanks in advance!)


  1. Congrats on the recognition, G! Even though it does mean all the good stuff will be gone when I get to my local drugstores. ;-)

    1. Lol!! Aaaw, thank you so much, Jsmmies. And thank you from the bottom of my heart for your longtime support over years!! Thanks for not giving up on me! :) xoxo

  2. Super cool! Thank you for doing such a great job! All You picked a good one!👏

    1. Aaaah, that is so sweet of you to say!! Thank YOU for being here! That means the world to me. <3333

  3. Thanks for the tips! Just got the Miss Manga mascara for $2.97.

    1. Whoo hoo! You're so welcome! I'd love to know what you think when you try it!! :)

    2. I got the Miss Manga Rock mascara, and it is ok. I did not get that extreme spikiness they advertise, and seems to be the trend now.(hopefully short-lived) I don't like spikiness, but a $3 mascara is a $3 mascara! I just used the wand in such a way to separate my lashes rather than clump them together. Formula is good, on the drier side which I like, no blobs or clumps when applied. Don't think I would pay full price for this.

  4. There are 2.00 off Shea Moisture coupons in the Sunday paper.

  5. Walgreens added a new promo called Everyday Points where you get 10 points per $1. And it works for almost the entire store. I think you have to add the perk to your card online though. It's in the same spot where the paperless coupons are I believe. I got a special email about it, so I just followed the link that way. I'm pretty sure this is a permanent thing.

  6. Thanks, G! I'll be picking up the CVS versions of the Neutrogena Hydrating Wipes & the Neutrogena Night Calming Wipes and two of my beloved Olay Luminous Facial Cleansers.
