Marshall’s Beauty Haul

at

Happy Thursday, beauties!  We are back after a few crazy weeks of being gone.  I know, I know- we seriously have been struggling this year with the blog, but  Tia and I are trying to change and be more consistent with our posts.  If you have not seen our Facebook book or Instagram posts, we will be participating in blogmas.  We are aiming for five posts minimum a week!  We are starting off blogmas a little early with a Marshall’s beauty haul.  Read on to see what I found!

 Ole Henriksen: Truth on the glow cleansing cloths

These face wipes are $15.00 for a 30 count on the Ole Henriksen website.  I found these for $3.99.  My Marshall’s also had the green wipes, which are from the balance collection- perfect for oily, combination skin.

Even though I purchased these a month ago, my Marshall’s has still been stocking them.  Which I am super happy about.  You’re getting a high-end brand at an affordable price.

 

 

 

 

 

Marc Jacobs: Style Icon 3 Palette- The Shoe Gazer

At $42.00 bucks a pop, this palette was a steal for $12.99.  The palette comes with 0.14 oz. of product.  I, personally, would not have paid the full $42.00 full price- but this is a very luxe brand.  It comes in a sleek black compact and a dust bag to cover it.  Inside the dust bag, I found one of those cheap applicators.  In this area they could have splurged or left it out all together.

I was able to find a few different color combo’s, but I only picked up one.  I picked ‘The Shoe Gazer’ because it was the most wearable for me with a little pop of color.

Skinfix Hand Relief Cream

Skinfix is a Canada based skincare company.  I have tried quite a few products from them and have loved everything.  The hand relief cream retails for $15.99, but I was able to purchase these for $3.99 each.  However, I would pay the $15.99 price on this particular product, because they are that good.

The hand relief creams are free of fragrance, urea, soy, gluten, parabens & phthalates.

Check your Marshall’s!  I’ve been seeing more items from Skinfix.

 

Cargo Getaway Palette

I was able to locate the a few of these Cargo palettes.  Originally $34.00, but I picked up two of them for $5.99.  Yes, you read that correctly!  Great price, right?  You can create a variety of looks, ranging from an everyday neutral or a smokey glam for a night out on the town.

Cargo is an under rated brand in my opinion.  I usually don’t hear much about them, but they make some pretty great eye shadows and their swimmables line is great!  You can still locate this palette at certain Marshall’s store, but the pricing has changed to $9.99.

 

Well, I hope you all have enjoyed this Marshall’s haul.  If you would like full reviews on any of the products, let us know via the contact  form below.  Also, with tomorrow being December 1st, it’s the first day of blogmas for us.  So be on the look out and sign up for our newsletter!

Keurig My K-Cup Reusable Filter

I own a Keurig, but find that buying k-cups can be a bit expensive.  My fiance and I decided to give this reusable filter.  The price for the filter is definitely worth all the savings in the end.

Last Minute Back To School Savings With Groupon Coupons

at

Summer is almost at an end and the school year has either started or is about to start for your kiddo(s).  My daughters actually start school the day after Labor Day.  This means I have a little bit more time to do some shopping and last minute back to school savings with Groupon Coupons!  Let’s talk about JCPenney’s.  I love hitting up the clearance section because I can always find really great items at an affordable price.  This is without coupons, so imagine the deals after using Groupon Coupons.

Let’s Talk Savings

Groupon Coupons currently has 48 coupons available for JCPenney.  The coupons do include in-store and online promotions.  Which I absolutely appreciate, because I am more of an instant gratification kind of a person.  However, I recently discovered you can ship to the store for free with purchases over $25.  So this is what you do:

So this is what you do:

1. Sign up for JCPenney rewards.  This gets you 10% back for every 100 you spend

2.  Download the APP and add a payment (You do not need to buy anything), you will get $10 in rewards instantly.

3. Use Groupon Coupons to locate the most current promotions.  I usually try 2-3 promotions to see which one will give me the better deal.

4. Maximize savings by stacking coupons.  For example, JCP currently has a coupon for 65% off 100, JCP rewards (like that $10 you received for downloading the app), and then a free shipping, if needed.

Then, repeat in-store, lol.  Another thing to take into account is this weekend is Labor Day!  Those words scream sales!!  So don’t forget to take full advantage of the sales and coupons when finishing your last minute back to school shopping.  What are your favorite stores to shop at?
