FabuFinds Product Spotlight September 2016

Every month, I review my Empty Products. Some products are not worth thinking about once the month is over. Others are wonderful and seem like they’re made for me. Those are FabuFinds, and I generally devote a little more time to discussing them. They are items I have repurchased and will continue to repurchase even at full price if I could not find a good promo code. Items I am loving but cannot finish any time soon make it into Deal Discoveries.

To eventually spotlight all of my FabuFinds, I will never repeat items already mentioned in a past article. That does not mean they lost their magic. It is also possible an item not spotlighted in a past Empties article may get promoted as I try it more and fall deeper in love. Other times, it is because I had a lot of FabuFinds in a previous month and decided to condense the article. There are four products I consider FabuFinds in my September Empties that I have not discussed yet.

FabuFinds: Product Spotlight July 2016

Every month, I review my Empty Products. Some products are not worth thinking about once the month is over. Others are wonderful and seem like they’re made for me. Those are FabuFinds, and I generally devote a little more time to discussing them. They are items I have repurchased and will continue to repurchase even at full price if I could not find a good promo code. Items I love but cannot finish make it into Deal Discoveries.

To eventually spotlight all of my FabuFinds, I will never repeat items already mentioned in a past article. That does not mean they lost their magic. It is also possible an item not spotlighted in a past Empties article may get promoted as I try it more and fall deeper in love. Other times, it is because I had a lot of FabuFinds in a previous month and decided to condense the article. There are eight products I consider FabuFinds in my July Empties that I have not discussed yet. I may add three or four others in future months, because I considered adding them here. This was such a great month for product loves that in a slower month, I may have added them. If I continue loving them or grow to love them more in future months, I will add them later (as I am doing this month with the Gold Bond).

Target $5 Gift Card with a $20 Beauty Purchase May 2016

Target is offering a $5 gift card with a $20 beauty purchase through 05/07/16. The gift card will automatically load into your cart with an online purchase. It ships separately after your items ship or after you pick them up (if you choose the ship to store option). Online shipping is free with a $25 purchase minimum. In store, text BEAUTY to Target (827438) to receive the bar code the cashier needs to scan. This discount applies to hair care, cosmetics, soap, body wash, skin care, sun care, shave care, deodorant, fragrance, and oral care, so hitting the minimum is easy. I went shopping with my husband and noticed the items we were getting were over $40, so he paid for some and I paid for others. We each got a $5 gift card. I like to give these gift cards to my sons’ teachers to help them with all the extra supplies they buy throughout the year.

Drugstore.com StriVectin 15 Piece Sample Bag

I do not purchase a lot of drugstore makeup or skincare, but I use a decent amount of drugstore body care. Most of my purchases are from samples I’ve tried, items I’ve swatched, or exhaustive research on a product to include reviews. Only the latter is easily available for drugstore products (although Target and Wal-Mart Beauty Boxes have helped in the sample category). When Drugstore.com releases a GWP on items in the beauty category, I try to stock up on items in the beauty category that qualify for the gift. These body care items qualified for the free 15 piece StriVectin Bag with a $75 Drugstore.com purchase. This gift expired on Friday, but there will be more throughout the year, including the next large offer Next January. While this one is not as impressive as the one I received in January 2015, there are still a few things in here I really want.

Target $3 off $15 Beauty Haul From the 10! Of Our Faves Beauty Box

When you purchase a Target Beauty Box, you get a coupon for $3 off a $15 beauty purchase. They usually expire within a month of receiving the box. While the intent is to use the coupon to get a discount off the item(s) you enjoyed from the box, you can usually use it on anything in the beauty department. There are not many exclusions other than items purchased from the baby beauty department. About a month ago, my almost nine-year old told me he no longer wanted to use baby products anyway. After moping for a few days, I gave him the CeraVe sample I received from a Facebook freebie. His skin is even more sensitive than mine, so most of the items in my stash will not work for him. He fell in love with the sample.
