Drugstore Deals

I stopped by Walgreens today to pick up some razors and while I was there, I checked out the natural beauty section (they usually have Burt's Bees, Yes to Carrots, Dr. Bronner's, and other brands grouped together). They had some good deals on items that have been discontinued, so I thought I'd share them so y'all can take advantage of them if you'd like.


I picked up shampoo, conditioner, and a color balm from Yes to Carrots. The shampoo and conditioner were on clearance, so I got each for $2.39 (I think they usually retail for $7.99). The price had kept me from trying these before, so I was excited to pick these up for even less than what I spend on my hair pair from Trader Joe's. The tinted balm is new and a coupon next to the display gave me $2 off which brought the price to $3.99. 


 The display said that this line of tinted lip balms (or "color balms") is new. They had three shade available and I chose the darkest, soft plum. I tried it out and it's very smooth, not waxy at all. It's a very nice balm, better than most of the others I own, but I prefer the texture and color payoff of the Burt's Bees tinted lip balms just a smidge.

Lip shimmers from Burt's Bees, some items from Shea Moisture, and a bar soap from Dr. Bronner's were also on sale for under $3 each, but they were all sold out. /:

A couple nice deals on the internet: LivingSocial is selling a voucher for 100% Pure. For $25 you get a voucher worth $50 to spend on 100% Pure's website. You can access the deal here. (It ends tomorrow.)

Rainwater Botanicals is giving 15% off all purchases with the coupon code "4LOVE" through February 14th.

  1. Great bargains, I've been wanting to try Yes To range, I spotted my local supermarket is now stocking the shower gels. The tinted balm sounds nice, I have yet to try Burt Bee ones :)

    1. They are definitely not completely opaque, but the color is still noticeable. So yes, you're right - they're sheer with a nice bit of color :)

  3. Quite Sad that I haven't seen Yes to Carrots in Singapore anymore... I loved the body lotion. :( Not sure if it's sold in Sephora SG or somewhere else, your post reminded me to do some research.

  4. It's always nice to grab a few good deals! :D

    Even though I'm addicted to natural products I can't quite get myself to love the hair care items. Regardless of the brand. :O

    Oh!! Dr. Bronner soap!! That's actually something that I want to try out but it's always out of stock....

    1. That sucks! I use Dr. Bronner's soap for everything - hand soap, washing my brushes, body wash... I've even tried using it as a shampoo, but it's not very moisturizing. :)
