Shopping the Beauty Aisles of CVS + a Giveaway!

No longer do I just look at CVS/pharmacy as the place to pick up my prescriptions and daily personal needs, I am shopping the beauty aisles. Have you checked out all the beauty offerings at CVS lately? I mean, what could be more convenient than shopping for some of your favorite beauty products right around the corner at your local CVS.


I am lucky enough to have two CVS/pharmacy stores in my small town. One is a larger store with three beauty aisles, while the other just has one, but lot's of POP displays that I am always shopping.

Did you know that CVS even has its own Beauty Club? Similar to the popular reward programs like the Sephora Beauty Insider, the CVS Beauty Club gives shoppers rewards for everyday beauty shopping. In fact, for every $50 you spend on beauty, you get $5 ExtraBucks back. Your $5 coupon prints right out on your receipt a few days after you reach your $50 threshold. Easy peasy! Be sure to sign up for the CVS Beauty Club before you head on out to CVS so you will start earning your ExtraBucks reward. Sign up here.

I recently went on a little $50 CVS/pharmacy shopping spree.  Check out all the beauties I got for a little over $50.


Not only did I pick up my favorite L'Oreal Elnett Hairspray ($15.79) and COVERGIRL Lash Perfection Mascara ($8.39), I also found a few new beauties I just had to try. I selected a pack of Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes ($7.49), NUANCE Salma Hayek Tinted Moisturizer ($14.79), and some fun animal print Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips ($9.99).

How would you like to go on your own little $50 CVS/pharmacy beauty shopping spree? I have a $50 CVS/pharmacy gift card to give away to one lucky Beautiful Makeup Search reader.
