It has officially been seven days since I drew the original Giveaway winner. She did not respond, so I had to draw again. There were 41 separate commenters (did not count subsequent comments from the same person) on the giveaway page, so the odds were 1 in 41 (assuming all are still subscribed). I am only checking subscriptions of the winner(s), so the odds could be better. The odds are now as low as 1 in 40.
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.
