Beauty on a Budget 2/12/12 -2/25/12

Great Buy #1
Nivea Lip Care $0.25 at CVS (2/12/12 - 2/25/12) (must buy 4)
Buy 4 at 2/$5 then subtract $6 in coupons (use 2 x $3 off of 2 coupon from 2/12/12 newspaper)
Subtotal will be $4/4 and you will get $3 in CVS bucks valid for next purchase
Although Nivea's lip care products are not made from organic products but it works really well in keeping my lips really moisturized during the winter. I usually get very dried and cracked lips during this time of the year possibly because of the dry weather. Therefore, after years of testing different lip balm, I finally found Nivea's lip moisturizer and it works like a charm in keeping my lips very moisturized for almost a whole day. I also prefer Nivea over brands like Softlips or Chapstick because I really hate their small little cap because I always tend to drop or lose them. In addition, I feel that the scent of Nivea's lip items smell very pleasant and not artificial. You guys should try out the shimmer one because it makes your lips glisten and at the same time it looks very natural. 

Great Buy #2
Got2b Hair Styler $0.99 at CVS (2/12/12 - 2/18/12)
Buy at $3.99 then subtract $3 in coupon from 2/12/12 newspaper
I went ahead and picked up got2b Smooth Operator Smoothing Satin Hair Drops after reading many positive reviews online. This product is advertised to be a weightless serum that smoothes the hair cuticle to de-frizz, tame and silken for a soft cashmere touch. So far after testing it once I felt that it made my hair very soft and silky but it does weigh my hair down a little. Another thing I like about this product is that it makes my hair smell very sweet almost like candy and it does add some shine to my hair as my hair is getting dull because my dye is fading out. Overall, for less then $1 it's worth a try! I also picked up the got2b spiking glue as that's one of my brother's favorite styling product.

Great Buy #3
Sinful Colors Nail Polish $0.99 at Walgreens (2/12/12 - 2/18/12)
On sale at $0.99


I heard a lot of great reviews on these nail polish saying they are very long lasting and colors are very vibrant after 1-2 coats. These polishes are usually selling for $1.99 and is considered a bargain and now at $0.99, it's definitely a steal. I will be buying some to test out for nail stamping and if it doesn't work out nicely then I'll just use them on my toes. Although I have a lot of better brands like OPI, China Glaze, Essie, etc but I prefer to use polish for toes and hands separately. I find it kind of gross to paint your toes then hands with the same bottle because your hand nails are bound to touch things like food.

Great Buy #4
Goody Ouchless Elastics 27 pcs for $0.99 at Walgreens (2/19/12 - 2/25/12)
On sale at $2.99 then get $2 in register rewards for next purchase
Just as I need more of these hair band as I tend to lose them very quickly without knowing it. It works very well as it doesn't break easily and hold hair very tight. For time to time, the elastic band might get stretched out but will still hold hair very securely. This set comes in a variety of colors so you can mix and match with your outfit.
