Cubicle Chicks understand that beauty doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. In fact, you can be at your most fabulous while spending minimal funds. And while I like to peruse the magazines and look at all of the designer, high market beauty products that are out there, I can’t afford most of them. But I don’t let that stop me of course, especially when I am always prepping for events and traveling. I have to have my game face on so to speak, so I have to be lights, camera, action, ready!
One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to pay more attention to the money I spend and budget more wisely. One of the things I dislike the most is spending tons of money on a beauty product only to get it home and find out I don’t like it and never use it again.
Walgreens has been my go to place for years for quality beauty products at low prices. You don’t have to worry about breaking the bank there, and they have quality cosmetics that have been in business for years.
Here are my 5 New Year Beauty Resolutions with the Help of Walgreens:
1. Read the labels:
A lot of products that are offered at high end stores have the same ingredients as those in Walgreens. Especially when it comes to facial cleaners. You would be amazed when looking at the contents of your favorite high end beauty item and then looking at those that are available in Walgreens. Things like Acai Berry, Vitamin D, Retin-A, and more are also in the lower price brands in Walgreens. So why pay more for the same thing?
If it’s a color you are in love with by a high end brand, then finding a like color at Walgreens is a good look. Brands like Revlon, L’Oreal, Maybelline, and Rimmel are all available and Walgreens and have amazing color choices and selections. Color match by taking the more expensive brand and finding a similar color that costs less. More in your pocket!
Walgreens offers competitive coupons for most of their cosmetic brands located in their store. I love their “Buy 2 get one free” deals, and you can end up saving a lot of cha-ching utilizing Walgreens store coupons for cosmetics and beauty items.
4. Selection, selection, selection + Location:
The Walgreens in my neighborhood offers such a wide variety of beauty items and selection, that I almost feel silly going to the mall, fighting over a parking space, to buy the same thing. Many of their stores are open around the clock, so even in the wee hours of the night when the kids are in bed and the hubby is watching the game, you can sneak out and get your shopping on at Walgreens.
5. Return policy:
Buyer’s remorse? Sometimes with beauty items, it happens. You get the product back to your home only to find out that it’s not quite what you thought. Most Walgreens will let you exchange the purchase for something else or refund your money (terms and conditions apply). So buying my beauty items there gives me a piece of mind, because if it’s not my cup a tea, I have options!
Utilizing these New Year Beauty Resolutions with Walgreens makes it easy for me to stay fly and fabulous and keep a few dollars in my bank account.
