Friends! I am so excited to share with you an amazing new coupon app I have discovered, Ibotta!
Let me start by saying, I AM NOT A COUPON GIRL. I have tried, but I find the whole thing just too much organizing and planning for my current state of life. Which is officially “hot mess”. Probably always will be.
But this app is super easy to use and takes the work out of it for you. I promise, I wouldn’t waste time on it if it wasn’t super easy, and I certainly wouldn’t suggest it to my readers if I didn’t think it was awesome.
Over the holidays I tried eyelash extensions for the first time. Let me tell you, they are amazing!
If you aren’t familiar with eyelash extensions, it’s a beauty procedure where individual false eyelashes (about 90 individual lashes!) are essentially glued to your real eyelashes. The extensions stay on for a few weeks and start to fall out as your natural lashes fall out with their normal growth cycle.
I purchased a groupon for the eyelash extensions at a great deal, otherwise they are super expensive. I can see how they are addicting though! I didn’t wear mascara at all while I had them on, and rarely wore eye makeup. This was awesome, I wear contacts and I loved not using eye makeup, especially mascara. I didn’t have that smudge of mascara under my eyes halfway through the day that add to my lovely genetically imposed dark under eye circles.
Did you know that Walmart has a seasonal Beauty Box for just $5? Each season, they send out a new box filled with sample sizes of new beauty products. I was surprised at how many things were packed into this little box, it’s a great deal!
Inside the winter Walmart Beauty Box:
NSPA by Nirvana Spa Exotically Creamy Rich Body Butter
Pantene Pro-V Hairspray
Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara
St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub
Swisspers Leopard Print Cotton Swabs
Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Daily Moisturizer
Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Restorative Night Cream
Crest 3D White Brilliance Whitening System
Burt’s Bees Intensive Firming Serum
Vera Wang Embrace Eau De Toilette Spray
Goody Slideproof Soft Touch Silicone Elastics
I mean, who doesn’t need leopard print cotton swabs? 😉 My favorite is the body butter, it smells like vacation!
Have you tried beauty box subscriptions before? There are so many…Ipsy, Birchbox, Glossybox, Julep, etc. I liked this box because it’s by far the best value, and focused on skin care and hair care instead of makeup. Kind of a fun treat for yourself and a good way to try out new drugstore products without committing to buying a full-sized product.
