We have an AWESOME deal thanks again to Visa and Swagbucks!!  Spend $20 IN STORE at Sephora, and receive 1500 Swagbucks ($15 ) back through April 2nd!  It is only valid in the stand alone Sephora stores, not the Sephoras that are in JCPenneys.  This means you get $15 worth of makeup and beauty FREEBIES for spending $5!!   The rebate will only take you a minute to sign up for, and then everything is done automatically!  You also receive your rebate immediately.   But, if you are purchasing more, we also have a second rebate offer from Ibotta!  When you spend $50 in store at Sephora, you receive $5!!  Both of these rebates can be combined, meaning you get $20 back!  We also have the same deal available for The Body Shop, you can read about it here with step by step instructions as well.

If you are not familiar with Swagbucks, they are in my opinion the most important couponing and shopping site that is out there.  They not only offer all of the high dollar printable coupons available, they pay you for each one you use.  They also offer cashback, and all kinds of other ways to both save and earn money.  Their offers like these are simply amazing!!  I have received so many freebies from using Swagbucks, and a lot of it I have been paid money just to bring home!   Of course it is totally FREE to use as well!

Dior Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation Review, plus Get it for only $42 with $20 Rebate at Sephora!

 

 

 

DIOR DIORSKIN AIRFLASH SPRAY FOUNDATION REVIEW!  PLUS, GET IT FOR ONLY $42 FROM $62 WITH REBATE AT SEPHORA Through March 11th!

 

If you have tried Dior Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation, chances are that you love it.  If you haven’t tried it, I really recommend you do!!  I have seen it on so many different skin types and complexions, and it has looked beautiful on them all.  It’s retail price is rather pricey, so before purchasing, I went and read so many reviews and tips on how to use it.  Most of those actually made me more nervous to try it, and were also from people that were considerably younger, which means completely different skin issues.   Therefore, I wanted to share my own experience.  Especially since right now we have a RARE deal opportunity!  Get Dior Airflash Spray Foundation for only $42,with a $20 rebate when purchased in store at Sephora!  See deal details HERE, and also at the end of my review.

While I believe in saying only positive things about ones self, this is a review, and I need to be brutally honest about what I am “working” with.  That way you can understand just how truly amazing this foundation really is.  First of all, I must state that I have EXTREMELY fair skin.  I am very pale, okay, maybe even possibly glow in the dark. However, I do not have that natural  “porcelain” complexion by any means. I need a lot of help to balance skin tone and camouflage problem areas.

At the age of 23 I found out I had Melanoma, skin cancer, on a spot on my stomach.  Though I was not in the sun much growing up anyway, I have since avoided it like the plague.  Yet I still have areas that need heavier coverage.  All of my Scottish and Irish ancestry shows in my skin.  And like my blonde hair possesses a subtle hint of red,  so does my skin, it’s just not quite as subtle.  I have some light freckles across my cheeks, and darker spots that appeared after having my daughter 2 years ago.  Thank you hormones!!   I also have very large and very visible pores across my cheeks.  It is difficult to find a foundation shade that is light enough in color, yet still has at least a medium amount of coverage, that does not appear orange on my skin.  Even the lightest shades available in many lines leave me looking like an Oompa Loompa, and that just isn’t the look I particularly enjoy.

I first heard about Dior Airflash by reading a blog of a fellow fair skinned beauty junkie.  I then started seeing and hearing about it more and more.  I get SO much free makeup and beauty products (if you would like to read how, see HERE,) that it is hard to pay retail for anything.  Just the thought of paying full price actually produces anxiety now.  As far as makeup is concerned, foundation is the most important product for me, and the one thing I am willing to spend or splurge on.  But, I still simply refuse to pay full price.  While luxury beauty products are rarely at a huge discount, and almost NEVER free, there are always ways to save if you just know where to look.   I used the only available discount at the time,  a small rebate which is part of the current deal listed below, and made my purchase.

When it first arrived, I will admit that I was too scared to try it.  I assumed it would be difficult to control, and would end up everywhere but on my face.  While I am admittedly addicted to beauty products, I am not an expert at application by any stretch of the imagination.  And to make things worse, I have extremely shaky hands.  Since it is pricey, the thought of wasting it kept me from jumping right in.  I went online to review tutorials and read all of the application tips.  Unfortunately though, most of what I read actually increased my fears, so it remained in the box it came in for some time.   That is until the day I found out my favorite band, AFI, was coming to Tulsa.  I would be seeing friends that I had not seen in four years, since the last time AFI was here.   I was so excited that I pulled it out to try immediately, along with a new lash extension kit I had been afraid of as well, and I’m SO glad I did!

I nervously took it out of the box, shook it up, and just sprayed.  Starting at my forehead, I sprayed gently moving my hand horizontally from left to right, then right to left, in a downward motion until I reached the bottom of my chin.   Within seconds, my skin looked different.  The color (Ivory) was perfect and seamless.  The only way you could tell the difference between where it was applied and where it wasn’t, was seeing the noticeable flaws on my skin where there was no makeup.  The coverage was amazing, truly giving a polished, airbrushed appearance.  Yet it is so lightweight that it feels like air going on, and like nothing is on your face after it is applied.  And the greatest part is that it literally takes just seconds.  For the review I actually applied and timed it.  From start to finish I apply it in less than 6 seconds.

It sprays an ultra fine mist that leaves your skin looking and feeling like velvet.  The formula contains Mother of Pearl pigments that even out your skin tone and balance discoloration like no foundation I have ever used.  I don’t even need to layer concealer over spots most of the time, like I have had to with all other foundations in the past.  It also reduces and covers the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking smooth and flawless.  Whether you have acne, sun damage, or dark spots, you can create a flawless look that actually lasts all day and through the night.  You can have as little or as much coverage as you prefer.  You can layer it for heavier coverage either by spraying more, using a Kabuki brush, or even spraying directly on a blending sponge.  Some people like to spray it on the back of their hand and use a Kabuki brush to apply in full.  It all works, it just depends on what you are more comfortable with.  Even though I thought it would be difficult, it is actually much easier for me to spray, and looks better than when I try to apply in full with a sponge or brush.  I spray my entire face first, and use a blending sponge to smooth around natural creases like my eyes.  If I have a blemish, I just spray a tiny dab directly on to a sponge, then dab the area until I have reached the amount of coverage I need.

I am just an average, 41 year old, single mom, who has both a teenager and a toddler.  So for every day wear, if a product takes any time at all to apply, it just won’t work for me right now.  I can apply the Dior Airflash in seconds, literally as I am walking out the door (and often do) and look like I spent a lot more time on my skin.  You really do get that airbrushed look without the work.  For every day, all I use is Airflash, eyeliner, mascara, and tinted lip balm. Here is a quick snapshot I took after a full day wearing Airflash, and chasing around a two year old.

When purchasing the product originally, I had read a review on Sephora that it had dried a user’s skin.   That review stuck with me and almost kept me from purchasing it.  My skin is prone to being dry, and I have never experienced oily skin in my life, even as a teen.  Especially in the colder Winter months, I have to be very careful.  A lot of products leave my skin dry and flaky.  Though I have not had any issues with the Airflash spray drying or flaking on my skin, if you are prone to drier skin, I always recommend exfoliating regularly, wearing a good moisturizer, and using a moisturizing primer before applying any foundation.

There are a just a few issues I have experienced with the Dior Airflash application, but I have found them to have easy solutions.  You will notice immediately that it does not smell good at all while applying.  It does however dissipate quickly.  The first time I used it, I sprayed in the bathroom with the door closed, definitely not a good idea.  Spraying in an open ventilated area is the best scenario.  While it still doesn’t smell good while spraying, there is no odor once on your skin, and a few malodorous seconds are definitely worth the results.  I compare it to spraying Aquanet hairspray in the late 80’s.  For a few seconds the smell was horrendous, yet it created those sky high bangs that lasted like no other product could.  And to fully embarrass myself, that is me below at age 17 in the purple dress along with Aquanet, sadly contributing to the hole in the Ozone layer.  In my defense, it had yet to be discovered.   The things we do for beauty, or at least what we think is beautiful at the time!

The next issue is blending around natural creases, or if you have any fine lines or wrinkles.  I have been very blessed in that most people think I am younger than my years.  But, I have some very persistent fine lines trying their best to emerge.  Once on your skin, it wears beautifully and does not cake, crack, or collect in lines or pores.  When you apply by spraying though, it can skip over those areas completely.  Now I simply take a beauty blending sponge, and gently swipe around my eyes and nose  which blends it in perfectly.  You will want to do this with any lines or natural creases on your face.  Some prefer to use brushes, but I have found the blending sponges work much better for me with this foundation, and I get my favorite ones at a total steal here.

For the next issue, things are about to get “real.”  I have a condition called PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome.)  There has actually been a lot of talk about PCOS recently in the media.  Whitney Thore, the girl who stars on the new reality show My Big Fat Fabulous Life, suffers from it and blames the hormonal imbalance for her weight.  One of the things she talks about with PCOS that I do agree with,  is that our extra dose of hormones can potentially cause extra facial hair.  Once again, I have been very lucky that I only have pale, blond, peach fuzz.  But, I never noticed just how much there really was until I used this foundation.  I am not sure what exactly causes it, whether it is the spray action itself, or the foundation formula, but it does accentuate every tiny little hair.  Even those that are not visible to the naked eye without the makeup on, and more so than any product I have ever used.  Gently swiping a blending sponge along those areas definitely helps, but I recommend just getting rid of it all together first by whichever method you prefer.  I received a “No No” for Christmas,  so I “No” longer have to worry about it again 😉

Overall, it is by far the best foundation I have ever tried, and I have tried most of what is out there.  A lot of people use it only for special occasions due to the price.  But, I wear it every day and have been really impressed with how long it lasts.  A little bit goes a VERY long way. I think that in some of the reviews I have read complaining that it doesn’t last long, people may be  spraying much more than what is really necessary. The fine micro mist particles really cover a good sized area, and there is no need to be spraying more than 6 seconds in covering your entire face.  For me, spraying directly on a sponge for extra coverage or layering wastes much less than spraying it on the back of your hand to apply.

The price is the biggest obstacle for most people.  And while it is worth it, we can always save at least some.  In normal circumstances, I recommend using Topcashback which offers the guaranteed highest cashback percentage, 8% cashback for your Sephora purchases online.  When buying Dior Airflash Spray Foundation, that would make it only $57.04 after cashback. Right now though, we have a SUPER deal opportunity!!!

Through March 11th, 2015, Swagbucks is offering 1500 Swagbucks which equals $15, when you spend $20 IN STORE at Sephora. This means when you spend $20, you get $15 back!  This is processed immediately too.  By the time I got home from the store, I already had the money waiting for me!  We also have a second offer from Ibotta  Spend $50 IN STORE, and receive $5 back.  You can combine BOTH these offers together, as the Ibotta offer is based on your store receipt. This results in $20 back when spending $50!

Using these rebates, when you purchase the Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation from Sephora which is priced at $62, you end up getting it for only $42!!  This is a HUGE discount on a luxury beauty product, that doesn’t come along often!

I have already completed the rebates myself, and have already been paid.  If you have wanted to try Dior Airflash, or if you already use and love it, now is the time to stock up!!  You only have through March 8th to receive the rebate and get it for only $42!  See the rebate deals in full with complete step by step instructions by clicking on the link below.  I hope you love it as much as I do!

Get a $15 rebate when you spend $20 at Sephora, and an extra $5 when you spend $50!  Full details and intructions here.

The Body Shop Rebate Deal & Review, FIVE FREE Products!!

 

 

 

THE BODY SHOP REBATE DEAL & REVIEW, FIVE FREE PRODUCTS!  SUPER BEAUTY FREEBIES!!  EXTENDED THROUGH 4/7!

 

Last night I loaded up my teenage son and my 2 yr old daughter, and headed to the mall to take advantage of the $35 in rebates from The Body Shop and Sephora.  I have not been to the mall in YEARS!! I do the majority of my shopping online, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity for $35 in FREE bath, makeup, and beauty products. You can find The Body Shop Deal HERE, and the Sephora Deal HERE.

I ended up waiting on the Sephora deal as they were completely out of Dior Airflash Foundation in Ivory, which is my one beauty splurge that is a must have for me.  It is pricey, so the rebate will give me to opportunity to get it for only $42.  One bottle lasts a really long time, but want to grab it while I can save $20 with the Swagbucks and Ibotta offers combined.

When my son was little, we went to the mall regularly, but since it has been so long since I have been, this was my daughter’s first time.   I’ve never seen a two year old who loves fashion so much.  Clothing, shoes, accessories, she takes it all very seriously.  She also is completely enamored by makeup and beauty products already. Needless to say, shopping is her “thing” and she was in absolute Heaven!

 

When we arrived at The Body Shop, I told the sales associates that I was shopping for the rebate. I asked if they have had a lot of people coming in for it, but they had not even heard of it. While it doesn’t surprise me, when there are great deals to be had, I can’t help but wish everyone knew about them.   I told as many people as I could before leaving the store.  One lady was so excited that she signed up for Swagbucks right there on her phone so she could use it right away.   From that experience we learned that it really does activate immediately, and the rebate is processed immediately as well!

I always purchase products from The Body Shop online, so it’s the first time that I’ve been inside the actual store in forever. My toddler wanted to look at, and smell, everything they had. So it did take a bit, but it was so much fun to see how excited she was for every new scent. It was particularly amusing when she didn’t like one. She helped me choose every piece I purchased, and I could see other customers amused by her as well, we could hear them talking about her as we shopped.

I really wanted to stay as close to the $20 minimum as possible. I ended up choosing the travel sizes so I could try as many new (to me) scents as possible. I had the sales associates helping, and even though the entire time we were adding up the total for the products in hand, my first transaction didn’t go as planned.  There was no signage alerting that some of the products I had picked up were on sale, and the girls helping me didn’t tell me either.  Hopefully they have fixed that now.  Because of this, my first transaction ended up with a subtotal of only $19.00.  Therefore it had to be returned and rung up again.  The next time adding an additional product to reach the $20 pre tax subtotal required for the rebate to activate.  Before returning the merchandise, the manager actually asked me if it was okay to just raise the price on an item in order to reach the threshold.  However, I knew I could add a hand sanitizer for only $2, and would rather pay $2 more for an extra product, than be charged an extra $1 for one I already had. I declined her offer.  On a side note, I did find that a bit odd considering the point of a sales team is to sell as many products as they can.

After trying everything, I ended up choosing 6 products in the scents I liked the most.

002

Here is what I purchased:

  • Mega Wild Argon Oil Body Butter 1.69oz Sale $5 (when you buy 2)-  This was my absolute favorite of all of their products!  I am normally not really drawn to the smell of most Argon Oil products out there, although I love the effects, especially on hair.   So I was really surprised at just how much I like this product’s scent.  Their Body Butters are always so incredibly rich and creamy, and they really do hydrate for the 24 hours that they claim.  It smells heavenly and while the scent lasts, it is not overpowering.
  • Strawberry Lip Balm .6oz $3-  I’m going to divulge my age on this one, but I purchased this because it smells and feels EXACTLY like the Strawberry Village Lip Lickers!  The tins are just much larger and round. Lip Lickers were the must have rectangular tins that every little girl in the late 70’s and early 80’s had in their Jordache purses.  I had The Body Shop Vanilla Brulee Lip Balm previously, but the Strawberry is so reminiscent, that it’s just a fun little piece to keep in your bag.  If you loved those little tins when you were young as much as I did, it will definitely bring you back!
  • Pink Grapefruit Body Scrub Gelee 1.8oz  Sale $5 (when you buy 2)-  This has a VERY sharp grapefruit scent.  I love the smell of grapefruit, so I like that. To me it does not smell like pink grapefruit though, rather the more bitter yellow ones.  Their body scrubs exfoliate well and leave your skin incredibly smooth.  I liked using it this morning as the sharp citrus smell was invigorating.  However, this is not one I would use prior to bedtime.
  • Strawberry Body Puree  $4– This is a really lightweight lotion that absorbs very quickly.   I prefer to use these in the warmer months.  Though I LOVE the Body Butters, when it’s 110 degrees outside here with the heat index and 98% humidity, the Body Butters are not the best.  It feels like it slides right off your skin when you start to “glow,” as my mother used to say.
  • Satsuma Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer 2oz  $2–  This has a REALLY nice citrus scent that I love.  Their sanitizers absorb quickly, and this is the perfect size to keep in your purse or car.
  • Pink Grapefruit Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer 2oz  $2– This has a VERY SHARP grapefruit scent, a bit on the bitter side, and at first rather strong.  I do like it, but I prefer the Satsuma scent for sure.  Don’t make the mistake I did, accidentally squirting a drop on your face while smelling it.  It hit around my lip and I can not put into words how badly it burned!!  I can only imagine judging from the pain, that it does in fact kill every germ in sight.  Because of how strong it is, it is NOT a product I would use on children, whose hands seem to have an uncontrollable link to their mouths.   The Satsuma doesn’t have the same punch as this one does.

 

In total, I purchased 6 products with a subtotal=$21

Received $15 (1500 Swagbucks)

Final Price=$6, the cost of just one of the Body Butters or Body Scrubs, like getting 5 products FREE!

 

By the time we we made it home, we were all exhausted.  As I pulled in the driveway and took out my keys, I realized we were locked out.  Miscommunication with my teenager left the house key on the kitchen counter instead of in my purse where I thought he had put it.  After having my neighbor try to “break in” through our kitchen window to no avail, we ended up driving across town to my father’s house for a spare.  We didn’t return home again until 11pm, but when I got inside and checked, my rebate had already processed, with the 1500 Swagbucks waiting in my account.  With Swagbucks, you can cash out via Paypal, or a plethora of store gift cards.  You can even donate to different charities.  There are gift cards you can get for as low as 100 Swagbucks, which is $1.  For Paypal though, the lowest denomination is 2500 Swagbucks, which is $25.  However, if you prefer Paypal like I do, it doesn’t take long at all to have enough bucks.  If you use both rebates, you can cash out via Paypal immediately.

It definitely works, it’s absolutely safe, and you do in fact receive your rebate immediately.  It is honestly a SUPER DEAL that you don’t want to miss.  If there are other products you wish to purchase, don’t forget there is an ADDITIONAL rebate from Ibotta (I give instructions on The Body Shop Deal post) that gives you $5 when you spend $30 in store at The Body Shop.  There is also an additonal $5 for Sephora when you spend $50 in store. These both can be combined with the Swagbucks rebate as it is based on your original store receipt.

I hope you all enjoy the rebate and the FREEBIES that it brings!!  It is really easy and takes just a minute, but if you have any questions or need help, I would be happy to walk you through it.  The quickest way to reach me is to either post or send a message on the Facebook page here.

 

Once again, you can find the full deals and instructions on The Body Shop Deal HERE, and the Sephora Deal HERE.

I have used BOTH of these companies for years, and they are indeed totally safe and reputable.  I have done these rebates myself and have already been paid.  Even if you don’t do these specific rebate deals, I strongly recommend you at least sign up for your free accounts.  You will end up both saving and making more money than you ever thought possible.

There is a limit of one Swagbucks rebate per account/card.  We also have a $20 FREE offer from The Body Shop, you can see it HERE.

If you are not familiar with Swagbucks, they are in my opinion the most important savings site that is out there, and I have tried them all!  They not only offer all of the high dollar printable coupons available, they pay you for each one you use.  They also offer cashback, and all kinds of ways to both save and earn money.

Sephora, FREE Makeup on Your Birthday, & Other Great Reward Benefits

 

 

 

 

I always tell people to sign up with every rewards program available, especially those with products you love, even if you don’t shop there regularly.  Almost all companies have an online site.  And almost all offer at least an email newsletter, if not a rewards/loyalty program as well.  It is a great way to be notified of upcoming sales and promotions, and also to receive exclusive discounts and coupons not offered elsewhere.  I get some of the best coupons via email, but many companies also offer great freebies!

Sephora is one of those companies that rewards you for signing up with their free Beauty Insider Rewards Program.  Even if you do not purchase anything, one of their perks is giving free gifts for your birthday.  My birthday is not until November, but I received my freebie offer in my email today.  For November birthdays, it is the Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick and Smoky Extravaganza Mascara.  For the guys, it is the Jack Black Turbo Wash Energizing Cleanser for hair and body.  When they notify you that it is available, you can pick it up at any Sephora, or it is automatically available with any online order you make.

Sephora also offers other great rewards just for signing up.  With every order, you get to pick 3 different samples.  I have gotten a lot of great ones, and a lot are what I would consider travel size, versus normal sample sizes.  It is a great way to try products before you buy, and to also try luxury products that you may not wish to purchase otherwise.

Once signed up, with every purchase you make, you are given points.  You can redeem them for all kinds of great products, which you can find on their website.  They also offer free beauty classes and access to seasonal promotions and product rewards.  If you spend $1000 in a calendar year, you gain access to their VIB ( “Very Important Beauty Insider” ) program.  With it, you get extra benefits such as early access to products and sales, private shopping events, and seasonal VIB only gifts.

Make sure you sign up with all of the companies that you like.  Always make sure that if they have a separate email newsletter, that you have signed up with it as well.  A lot of times you get different rewards with each one.  CVS  is a great example of this.  You have to sign up with their Extra Care Card, their Email, their Beauty Rewards Club etc..  It just takes a few minutes, but the rewards are definitely worth it!

BEAUTY on a Budget, and Makeup for FREE!

A Free Makeup Haul From an Impromptu Stop at the Store!

I love makeup!  As a little girl I was in awe of the fancy bottles and tubes that lined my mother’s vanity.  I longed for the day when I could have my own.  What I didn’t realize was just how much I would spend to have all of those pretty colors and compacts.  We all know there are ways to save on our groceries, but many people still pay full retail for their cosmetics.  Whether shopping online, or purchasing in-store, there are always deals if you know where to look.  Not only can you have nice makeup on a limited budget, but you really can get a lot for free!

COUPONS AND STACKING

I used to purchase almost everything online to get the best deals.  And while you can get great deals combining the methods I will mention shortly, I didn’t realize the opportunities that I was missing for in-store discounts.  Even more, I didn’t realize just how much I could actually get for FREE!  I knew I could save big on my groceries, but for some reason I never thought about doing the same with my beauty purchases.  For the best deals available, no matter what your shopping preference is, stacking multiple discounts is the key!  While in-store shopping, almost all stores allow you to use both a manufacturer coupon and also a store coupon for each item.  Even stores like Ulta take manufacturer coupons.  In addition to the two coupons per item, you can often use special store percent off discounts, or dollar amount discounts, along with them as well.  Learning your store’s coupon policy is absolutely essential.  Even store associates are not always familiar with their coupon policy, so printing it off online and carrying it with you can prove to be very helpful.   Learning the sales cycle of the items you purchase most, can also make sure you are buying the item at it’s lowest price point.  Using coupons and discounts in addition to timing your purchases with store sales, will result in amazing savings and free products!   I recently purchased $115 of Almay makeup at my local pharmacy.  At the end of my transaction, and with all savings methods applied, I only paid $6 out of pocket!  I did this by stacking a $4 off Almay manufacturer coupon for each item,  a 25% off entire purchase mobile coupon, a $3 off $15 cosmetics store coupon, and timed it all with a “Buy 1 Get 1 50% off in-store sale.  High value coupons come out regularly for brands such as WetNWild and Rimmel, that even without store sales can mean getting items totally free.

Where To Find Cosmetic Coupons

  • SwagbucksI am listing this site first because of its versatility.   It will save you money when buying online and when making in-store purchases.  A great feature is that you can also earn quite a bit of money by using it as well.  They pay you to use them as your search engine, for doing surveys, trying products and programs for free.  They also have exclusive discount offers and cashback.  It is free to join, and they offer a variety of ways to actually earn money as well.  One of their many features is that they offer free printable manufacturer coupons.  Besides having the best coupons available, they also PAY YOU to use them! For every coupon that you redeem at a store, they pay you the equivalent of .10.  You would be surprised at how quickly it adds up.  All you do is click on the coupon you would like, print, and give them to your sales associate at checkout.  Each coupon has your unique member code, and will automatically show in your account.  Their cosmetic coupons can be found by clicking the “discover” tab, then “coupons,” then choosing the “Personal Care” category.  The “Swagbucks” that you earn can be redeemed for cash through Paypal, or store gift cards.  Use them for stores like Ulta and Sephora and get even more makeup for free!
  • Your Sunday Paper-Coupon inserts have manufacturer coupons that vary regionally.  Getting extra copies when a high dollar coupon comes out, multiplies your savings.  Always read the fine print on your coupon.  Sometimes a manufacturer will limit the number of “like” coupons you can use in a transaction.  If this is the case,  you can usually separate your items into multiple transactions per visit.  I have friends and family give me all of their unwanted inserts/coupons.  Also, in my area, our local convenience store chain gives a half off discount if buying multiple papers.  Besides having manufacturer coupons, there are often store coupons found in weekly sales ads.  These can be combined with manufacturer coupons and sometimes even with other store discount offers as well.
  • Coupon Clipping Services-There are quite a few coupon clipping services available online. I know it sounds strange to pay for coupons, but it is a great way to get coupons in multiples, without the expense of multiple papers.  It is also a great way to get coupons that did not come in your regional inserts.  While you can print coupons online, most are limited to two prints per computer.  It is also against the law to photocopy coupons.  When you present a manufacturer’s coupon to a store, they send it in to be reimbursed.  If a coupon is a copy, or if you have given a coupon that is expired, they can not redeem them with the manufacturer.   My personal favorite clipping service is Coupon DeDe.  I have tried several, but her site usually has the best prices, fastest service, and the best coupon inventory available.   Ordering from her site generally takes 2-3 days from the time you order until delivery, and typically costs 10% of a coupon’s value.  For instance a $1 off coupon will typically cost .10 cents.  Even when you pay for high value coupons, it still will save you a great deal of money in the end.
  • Mobile Coupons-One of the easiest ways to save money now is by using mobile coupons.  These are electronic coupons with nothing to clip, and ready to use by just opening the app on your phone.  Just pull up the coupon you would like to use, hand it to your sales associate, who will scan the barcode displayed on your screen.  Most stores are now equipped to scan them at the register.  However, they also have a written code that the sales associate can enter manually.  Most of the mobile coupons I use are for a dollar amount off the total purchase, a percentage off the total purchase, or when stores are offering free products.  Stores like Bath and Body Works, Sally Beauty Supply, Sephora, and Ulta, frequently offer great discounts and free products as incentives to shop.  Offers change weekly, so make sure you check your apps on a regular basis.  There are a lot of free mobile coupon apps, so I will just list the two that I use the most for cosmetic purchases.  These two have consistently shown the best offers and most “free” offers of all the apps I have used.

RETAILMENOT

COUPON SHERPA

  • STORE LOYALTY PROGRAMS-Most stores now offer some sort of loyalty program. Make sure you sign up with all that are available, and at all of the stores that you frequently shop.  Some stores like CVS even have a specific “Beauty Club,” which issues exclusive coupons and rewards you for your purchases.  CVS gives you $5 for every $50 you spend on any “Beauty” purchases.  And in many cases, you can use the rewards and coupons you receive from loyalty programs, combined with all of your other coupons and discounts as well.   Make sure you also visit each store’s online site to sign up for their newsletter.  I recommend having a separate email address that you use only for these types of programs.  Just make sure that you check it often.   I receive some of the best discounts through my email.
  • FACEBOOK-Most companies now have a Facebook page.  Many will offer special discounts and coupons on their pages, or just for “liking” their page or sharing certain “updates.”

SHOPPING ONLINE

I love to shop online, I can shop in my pajamas and I never have to even leave the house!  Just as stacking is the key to shopping in-store, it is also the case with making online purchases.  My most recent online beauty purchase was from Bath and Body Works.  I purchased 12 full sized items that were regularly $12.50.  After all discount methods were applied, my final cost was only $26.88.  I paid just a bit over the cost of 2, which was like getting 10 items almost for free! I timed an amazing store sale that gave buy 3 get 3 for free, a special temporary markdown, a Coupon Code from RetailMeNot, and then Cashback on my purchase.  Combing coupon codes with online cashback, can give you the best deals available.

CASHBACK SITES-I never buy anything online without getting the best cashback available.  Cashback sites are free and easy to join and use.  Before making an online purchase, just sign in to your account and use the cashback site to click through to the store you are purchasing from.  They get paid for driving traffic to stores, and they pass the earnings on to you.  They also have exclusive coupon codes and discounts that are not available elsewhere.  Cashback percentages vary, and they change often.  Each site also has a different list of stores that they work with.  I always check to make sure I am getting the best deal available. There are quite a few cashback sites, but these top my list of favorites and have consistently given the best deals.

  •  TOPCASHBACK-Topcashback has proven to be the best cashback site I have ever used.  It has several unique features not found with similar sites.  It offers the highest cashback percentage rate guaranteed.  It also has special offers where you are reimbursed more than 100% for products.  I have gotten everything from Coffee to diapers for free, plus even been paid a bit extra.  They also offer “no purchase” offers where they pay you for things like signing up for a store’s newsletter, or trying a program for free.  For example, right now they pay you $15 if you try Microsoft’s Azzure program free for a month.  You are also paid $10 for every friend that you refer.  And since your friends will ask how you are getting all of these products for free, your referrals will add up quickly.  The only issue with Topcashback is it takes a bit longer sometimes for cashback to become payable in your account.  However, it is worth it as the cashback percentage is often at least double of what other sites are giving, and it will eventually clear.
  • BIGCRUMBS Bigcrumbs was the first cashback site I started using years ago. and is still a favorite.  They are also one of the only sites that gives you cashback for Ebay purchases.
  • EBATES-Ebates is another cashback site that offers great deals as well as cashback.  They also have a great referral program that pays well for helping your friends save too.  Right now you get paid $20 for your first referral, $25 for your second, $30 for your third and so on!  They have a maximum of $25,000 for paid referrals which is far more than most.
  • MR. REBATESAnother great site that has been around for some time.  They also offer deals, coupons, cashback, and a referral program.

SUBSCRIPTION BEAUTY BOXES

  BIRCHBOX

      More and more companies are offering monthly subscription “Beauty Boxes.”  Every month you are sent a box with different cosmetics and beauty products.  It is a fun way to try new products, and usually for a fraction of what they would normally retail for.  Most companies also offer a “cancel at anytime” guarantee,  and let you order month by month.  Even better, there are usually deals and offers which allow you to get your first box free, at a huge , and some even pay you to try them!! Also, most offer some type of referral system which will give you more free boxes by sharing the savings with your friends.

  • GET PAID TO GET A FREE BEAUTY BOX FROM JULEP-What is better than free makeup?  Actually getting PAID to get free make-up!  Sign up for a free account with SWAGBUCKS.  They are offering a deal to get a free Beauty Box from Julep, paying only $4.99 shipping.  BUT….When you order your first box using Swagbucks to click through, then entering the code they give you making your box free, Swagbucks will credit your account with 600 Swagbucks which equals $6!!!  You will actually be making $1.01 to get nice make-up for free!  When you receive your free box, it also comes with a coupon for 50% off your next box as well!  Invite your friends and earn even more boxes for free.   If you do not wish to receive any more boxes, you can cancel and still keep your free box and the money you made to get it.
  • TARGET BEAUTY BOX $5 – Last year, even Target jumped on the beauty box trend.  And while they only offer their beauty box sporadically and not yet one on a monthly basis, it is well worth keeping an eye out for it!  They offer the entire box with shipping, for only $5! Make sure you use one of the cashback sites I listed above and also check for any available coupon codes, and it makes an even more amazing deal!   Not only does the box come with 5 great Beauty Products, it also comes with coupons worth more than what you paid for the entire box.  Just one of the products you will receive. retails for more than you paid for them all.  They only offer their Beauty Boxes online, and these do sell out quickly.  Whenever they become available, I always buy several so I can have one for me, and at least one to keep on hand for a fantastic gift! The photo above was the most recent Target Beauty Box.
  • BIRCHBOX– Birchbox has great monthly beauty boxes and a lot of products you can purchase through their site.  You can earn points by referring friends which will give you credit on your future purchases and even free boxes.  There is a great deal for new Birchbox subscribers that will get you their monthly beauty box for only $7.  Sign up with a free account with Ibotta, a free phone up that pays you cash for products you purchase.   Click on their “Health and Beauty” category to receive your link for your discount.  Use code BB100 at checkout and get a free $10 credit as well!
  • GLOSSYBOX– There is a fantastic deal from GlossyBox.  For the month of  May, you get a free $25 gift card to Bergdorf Goodman which can be used in-store or online,  use code INT58RD at checkout, and your box of 6 “luxury sized” beauty products will only cost $17.85!!  Refer your friends and get points for more free products.

STORES AND SITES WITH HUGE SAVINGS

  • IDEELI–  Ideeli is an online store that has sales on luxury items from Prada, to home, to jewelry, to cosmetics.  They advertise up to 70% off.  However, using their regularly offered coupon codes results in even better savings, and even some for free! They have been issuing coupon codes for $10 off $10 periodically.  Their sales change daily and a regular account with them is free.  You can upgrade to a paid account which allows you first access to sales.  However, even with my free account I have scored some fantastic deals, and using the $10 coupon when it is available, will definitely get you a free cosmetic or beauty item.  They offer a lot of nice products from a variety of lines, and they also credit you $25 for each friend you refer who purchases an item.
  • GROUPON-Cosmetics and beauty items show up quite a bit on Groupon.  From luxury brands to even brands like Maybelline, some really nice offers come up consistently.  Groupon regularly has coupon codes available which you can combine with cashback sites like Topcashback for incredible savings.

 

TOTALLY FREE

REBATES

There are almost always at least some rebates available for beauty items.  Even if the rebate is only partial, if you time your purchase with a store sale, or use coupons, even a partial rebate can end up covering your purchase.  Many companies also offer product guarantees.  If you purchase an item and are not happy with it, they will refund your total purchase price.    Because the rebates offered change frequently, it is a good idea to check for them often.  You can find available rebates by visiting a company’s website, or performing an online search.
