Get a Free Beauty Box from Walgreens!

You know what I love? Shopping for beauty products. Know what I love even more? Shopping for beauty products and getting rewarded for it with even MORE beauty products.  If that’s not a win-win, I don’t know what is!

Lucky for me (and all of you collegiettes!), Walgreens wants to reward their shoppers by mailing them a free Sample Beauty Box whenever they spend $30 on participating beauty products using their Walgreens Balance™ Rewards Card. Think of it as your fairy beauty godmother who conjures up L’Oréal BB cream samples whenever you hit up the cosmetics aisle. Pretty awesome, right?

Balance Rewards is a program that helps you live your life in a way that makes you happy and keeps you healthy. You can earn thousands of points on many of the items you buy that can be redeemed on future purchases, either in store or online.

I was SO excited to get my Beauty Box in the mail today. Check out some of the beauty swag I received!

I was super happy to receive a sample of Aveeno Protect + Hydrate sunscreen—Aveeno is one of my favorite brands, and I love how their products make my skin feel! Not to mention, I’m one of those uber pale people who burns within 15 minutes of unprotected sun exposure, so the fact that I got quality sunscreen to help me out is an obvious plus. Among the other products I received was a Schick Hydro Silk disposable razor, which I’m very excited about, because it has five blades—three just doesn’t cut it for me (pun not intended… maybe). I’m also really pumped about the L’Oréal and Maybelline BB cream samples that came in the box as well as coupons for some of my favorite products!

Want to get your own Beauty Box? Hit up your local Walgreens, spend $30 with your Balance Rewards card, and you’ll get a sweet set of cosmetics swag like I did. Happy shopping, collegiettes!
