My CVS deals and #doyourmakeup scores this week

Posted Sep 10 2013 10:38am

It’s a great week at CVS this week! There are lots of great deals to be had and some of them are on beauty which makes this makeup junkie happy. Plus, cheap Huggies! Whee! I’ve been twice this week, and now CVS Beauty Club emailed me a $6/$30 beauty purchase coupon, so you know I’m going back. Here’s what I’ve gotten so far. I started out the week with a measly 4 extra care bucks.

Transaction #1:


2 Colgate Total $2.99 each = $5.98

1 CVS Probiotic $9.99

2 Almay liquid lip balm $5.99 each = $11.98

total = $27.95

coupons I used:

-$5/$25 email coupon

-$2 two printable Almay liquid lip balm coupons from

-$4/$12 cosmetics coupon from CVS magic coupon machine

-$1 Colgate coupon from SmartSource insert

-$4 ECB from last week

= $11.9 + tax = $13.62 and I got back $17.99 ECB – $9.99 for the probiotic, $4 for the Almay, and $4 for the toothpaste!

Now, CVS prints me off a $10/$50 EVERY time I buy something, so since I had so many ECB after that first transaction, I decided to put together another scenario using a $10/$50. Here’s how I did it!

Transaction #2:


2 Huggies Slip-on diapers $9.49 each = $18.98

Softsoap $2.99

2 Ben Gay cream $4.49 each = $9.98

2 Desitin $3 each = $6

Johnson’s baby wash $3

Almay wake up eyeliner + highlighter (love!) $8.79

Wet ‘n Wild eyeshadow $2.99

Wet ‘n Wild megashield lipstick (BOGO 50% off) $1.49 (love also!!)

total = $54.22

coupons I used:

-$10/$50 CVS coupon on my earlier receipt

-$4 two $2 off Ben Gay coupons from SmartSource

-$1.75 $1 and 75 cents off Desitin printable coupon

-$1 Johnson’s printable coupon

-$5 two $2.50 off Huggies Slip-on diapers printable coupons

-$6 two $3 off Huggies Slip-on diapers CVS printable coupons

- $4/$12 Cosmetics purchase from CVS magic coupon machine

-$17.99 ECB from previous purchase

Total: $3.48 + tax = $6.62 and I got back $12 ECB. 4 for the Almay (buy $10, get 4- I had $2 credit left from previous purchase), 4 for the 2 Ben Gay, 2 for the baby wash & Desitin, and 2 for the Softsoap.

I’m pretty pleased with my deals!! With my beauty coupon and ECB, I am going to go back to CVS and get some Maybelline and Garnier products which are on ECB deals this week. Stay tuned!

And as a quick review, I absolutely LOVE the Almay eyeliner and the Wet ‘n Wild lipstick I purchased. The liquid lip balms make a nice gloss, too, but I wouldn’t use them as lipstick only. Here’s my #doyourmakeup pic in the Almay liner & Wet’n Wild “Make Me Blush” lipstick.
