How to Use Coupons to Save on Summer Beauty Essentials

Growing up, I watched my mom spend countless hours clipping coupons to find the best deals on groceries, clothing, cleaning supplies, and our favorite health/beauty products. Shout out to the household CFO (hi, mom!) for teaching me the value of money and couponing. Now as a recent college grad, I can definitely appreciate saving a few dollars on anything and everything. Whether its using resources to save money while shopping online or clipping coupons to save money in the stores, my bank account definitely appreciates my efforts. 

Recently, Walgreens released the paperless coupons section on their mobile app. What does this mean? It means spending less time clipping coupons while still saving money on all of my favorite summer beauty essentials! These paperless coupons are 'clipped' to your Walgreens Balance Rewards account and then redeemed when you purchase your products. You can simply scan your Balance Rewards Card at checkout (I scanned mine via the Walgreens App on my phone). I no longer have to spend quality time with my scissors and the weekly newspaper or worry about forgetting coupons at home! 



During my most recent trip to Walgreens, I was able to save 22% using the Walgreens Paperless Coupons to stock up on summer beauty essentials. During the summer months, I don't want to have make up caked on my face everyday, especially if it's just going to melt off in the heat. My go-to products are Revlon's CC Cream, Pantene's Dry Shampoo, L'oreal's Voluminous Butterfly Waterproof Mascara, and brightly colored nail polish! 

Revlon's CC Cream allows me to save time because it evens out my skin tone and while also protecting my skin from the sun's rays with SPF 30. I don't know about you, but my hair gets oily more quickly during the summer months. Pantene has created my favorite dry shampoo as it leaves my hair feeling fresh and clean with just a few squirts. L'oreal's Voluminous Butterfly Waterproof Mascara gives my lashes more volume and length, while also not worrying about getting raccoon eyes from sweat and impromptu water balloon fights and pool parties. Of course, brightly colored nails are always festive in the summer!

With these products, I'm ready for anything in just a few minutes. While I don't mind going barefaced in the summer heat, sometimes I just want to look a little more polished.

  24. My Summer stapes are simple, I agree a good CC cream can go a long way... that or a moisturizer. Then I dress it up with a little shimmer powder and fun lip gloss shades. Love the savings you were able to find in store. #client
