Stay Healthy and Beautiful in 2013 with CVS

| January 7, 2013 | Comments (0)

Since I’ve been happy with the other moisturizers I’ve tried, looking forward to enjoying great results with Ultra-Lift daytime cream.

Does part of your plan for 2013 involve better health and wellness? Is the budget understandably tight in these difficult financial times? Consider opening an ExtraCare Rewards account with CVS. At the urging of my mom, who’s been a happy customer of the Newtown Square, PA CVS location since its opening a few years back, I finally opened my own rewards card in Florida several months ago. And the deals I’ve discovered on everything from hair care products to vitamins to moisturizers have been surprisingly significant — which is especially helpful when dealing with consumable items that need to be replaced at a minimum of every  2-3 months. Best of all, these cards are honored at all CVS locations, so no matter where you live or where your travels take you in the USA, if there’s a CVS in the area, you can take advantage of the savings offered.

Yesterday I went into a CVS to purchase some Garnier products and left with a coupon for $10 off my next purchase, thanks to a deal in which each of the items purchased netted back a $5.00 coupon. Since these products are already reasonably priced and work as advertised (see my Garnier review here), it’s a great incentive to head back to the store (or purchase online) and try even more Garnier beauty offerings.

Actually, after noting the special deal as I scanned the shelf, I bought one never before tried product — Ultra Lift,  and one I’ve been using for nearly a year — Miracle Skin Protector Beauty Balm Cream (a fantastic alternative to foundation). Look for reviews soon of both of these products, along with Garnier Fructis Color Shield shampoo and conditioner. Hint: as an affordably priced brand, Garnier delivers excellent results and can definitely hold its own against expensive department and specialty store competitors. During this era of economic turmoil, it sure is nice to know that you can still look your very best without breaking the bank or sacrificing quality.

Garnier's Beauty Balm Cream is a fabulous alternative to traditional foundation.

In terms of staying healthy and beautiful from the inside out while maintaining a budget, CVS is hard to beat with its frequent 2-for-1 deals on vitamins. I am a huge proponent of Nature’s Bounty Extra Strength Hair Skin and Nails, having been turned on to the benefits of biotin by my hairdresser over a year ago. Both in-store and online, CVS is running a Buy One Get One Free special on this amazing product, which has had a noticeable effect on my hair’s sheen, elasticity and overall health. Each bottle contains 150 coated caplets, which translates into a 50 day supply (take 3 per day). So for $16.79, I got two bottles and a 100-day supply, or 3-months and 10 days’ worth of capsules — an excellent bargain!

But there’s more. Spectravite chewable multi-vitamins, which I’ve also been taking for about a year now, were also offered as a “twofer”. Thus for the price of one $6.19 bottle containing a 60-day supply, I ended up with two bottles, which will last about four months. Thanks CVS!
