My Experience with Walgreens Brand Products

This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.

Obviously, my blog is called Frugal But Not Cheap.  I will not spend money when it's not necessary (or don't REALLY want it), but I also have to make sure I'm always feeling great.  If I have the sniffles, I'm not going to sit at home waiting to feel better, I'm going to do something about it.  I also hate the feeling of spending more than I need to on top of feeling icky.  That's why I love Walgreens.  There's one right around the corner, a couple blocks away from where I live.  

Now, I could go and spend $10-12+ on Sudafed or Nyquil, but why do that when Walgreens has Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products?  They have them at practically half the price, most with the same exact ingredients.

If you live in Austin, you know how bad allergies can get.  Well, I remember a recent need for some serious allergy meds, which led me to purchasing Walgreens Wal-Phed PE Sinus & Allergy Tablets.  Remember how I said Sudafed can be around $10-12?  Well the Walgreens brand is only $4.99.  That is some serious savings, which you can use toward some Kleenex, chicken soup, and a nice Cosmo to make your sick day a little better.

Here are some more awesome things to note about Walgreens:

Purchase of every Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Product supports bringing preventive wellness services to local communities through the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™.  They are going to donate up to $3 million annually to the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™.  I find this to be pretty amazing since we all know the world desperately needs more funding for health care.  For details, visit walgreens.com/waytowell.  

My whole point is, if you're going to buy some meds, why pay more for the exact same thing with a pretty label?  Check out Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products since A. you'll spend less money and B. you are helping a very worthy cause.  

One more thing!  Many bloggers are giving away some Walgreens Gift Cards here: giveaways!

Origins GinZing Product Review

This weekend I went on a bit of a shopping spree and stopped at Origins, my favorite skincare brand. I've lately been noticing some major puffiness under my eyes (see above photo, left eye), and decided to forgo my years of denial.  I needed to come to terms with the fact that I need eye cream.  Not only do I have puffy eyes, but I also have pretty dark circles as well.  At least I don't have wrinkles (yet!).

I told the sales associate about my issue, and immediately she pointed this out to me: Origins GinZing--Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff.  I also grabbed A Perfect World White Tea Skin Guardian, which is part of my daily regimen (moisturizer just isn't the same without it).

Now, I have been a long-term loyal customer of Origins, since I was about 11 or 12 years old.  I use Checks and Balances Face Wash, A Perfect World Skin Guardian, A Perfect World Moisturizer, Stay Tuned Foundation, Modern Friction Microdermabrasion, and much more where that came from.  Even though my trust for Origins is pretty hard to knock, I still get skeptical with eye creams.  My usual thought is "What difference could it possibly make?  It's only around your eyes?"  This is why I decided to write a review on GinZing.

I have to say I am extremely impressed with this product.  I put a very small amount under and around my eyelids, and I instantly felt a cooling sensation.  The next thing I noticed was that the cream has light-reflecting minerals which create an illusion of lighter "dark circles" and makes for an amazing primer for concealer.  However, the ultimate test was, does it depuff like I need it to?  The answer is absolutely yes.  I have already noticed that the puffiness has gone down quite a bit.  My rating for this product?

***** FIVE STARS! :)
