Bargain Haul - Kick of to Spring

http://sparklemepink88.blogspot.com/2013/03/bargain-haul-kick-of-to-spring.html
 I got to do a little mommy alone time shopping yesterday and am so excited to share what I picked up!

The 2 big candles and Cashmere are from Bath and Body Works. They came out with the Peach Bellini scent for Christmas but sold out before I could pull the trigger to spend that kind of money on candles. thankfully they re-released the scent but in a peach color (the first version was ivory) I then asked the associate who was helping me to pick out the metal candle holder if their were any current coupons and she offered if I spent $10 or more to get a free lotion or body wash. Woo hoo !! Plus the candles were 2 for $22 !! I also picked up some antibacterial refills and a silver sparkle gummy holder to attach to my purse. So for $33.00 I was able to get 5 anti-bact refills, the holder, the metal candle holder, two large candles and a body lotion. Not bad if you ask me :-)
I have to admit I don't think I have purchased anything from BNBW since I lived in NY !http://sparklemepink88.blogspot.com/2013/03/bargain-haul-kick-of-to-spring.html
In this close up you get a closer peak to the adorable print of the FREE panties I picked up at Victoria's Secret. I received that coupon/card in the mail.

Then at Sephora, which I have only ever purchased one thing from there before, I picked up a travel size of the Urban Decays Makeup Setting Spray in All Nighter. I have heard some good things about this spray that it keeps you matte all day and preserves your makeup through the heat and sweat of the  summer. I am skeptical but figured I got a good deal on it so if I don't like it then it won't feel like too much of a loss. Before I get into how I did the deal lemme tell you that the full sized bottle is about $30, um... yea... for a magical mist... that has some major claims, no way I am spending $30 on something I don't know that works. 

Which leads me to Wrapp !  Long story short, Wrapp is a phone app were you use social media to share gift cards for free to random stores and friends can return the favor and send you gift cards. I have gotten the $5 Sephora one twice now. Spread out but you can't use them together anyways, but hey $5 is $5 ! 
You can see the last fabulous Sephora deal I did HERE.
So to break it down - the sample size was $14 then with my Wrapp phone app $5 giftcard I paid $9 oop to be able to give this baby a try.  
Much better than $30 or even the $14 :-)

I used the spray this morning its got a light scent and just felt like I spritzed water on my face but it quickly dried/absorbed. I've had it on for a few hours now and to be honest and not as shiny as I normally get by this point in the day. I will try it a few more times though and give y'all a full report soon.

 At CVS I used the coupon I received in the mail from Suave through a Facebook promo to get the Everlasting Sunshine for FREE
I also grabbed two items that I have been eyeballin for a while the Renewing anti-dark circle roller in light/medium and Renewing BB Cream in light/medium. Both run $9.99 but this week some CVS brand products are buy one get one 50% off.  Plus each had a tear off peelie coupon on it for $2 off, I then used a $5 ECB and got both for $6 oop!!
 When I opened the eye roller box this morning a sample of the BB Cream popped out (awesome) so I used that but having never used a BB Cream before I pushed out what I though would be a perfect amount. WELL I was wrong ! It is an understatement with the BB Cream, a little goes a long way, opps!  I did find it to be a bit dark for me, perhaps it is because I put about 2 dollops too much on LOL !! It does have a lovely fresh beachy summer scent to it which I like. 
As for the eye roller in comparison to the Garnier one (which I have owned for a while now) the CVS formula is very, very thin. BUT it goes on very creamy and silky leaving a nice base / primer for under eye concealer. 
I will try both of these a few more times and get back to you guys.

Lastly I stopped off at Ulta to use my Level 1 Rewards coupon. With a Level 1 reward I could get one free Ulta nail polish or shampoo or conditioner or I think one other thing? I didn't see anything that jumped out at me nail polish wise on this trip but that is probably because I had already fallin in love with this headband by Capelli New York. Perfectly dainty and just hippie enough for me :-) Today I was in a bun mood and actually double wrapped this around the base of my bun for a super fun flowery look.  As for the deal, the headband is normally $10 on sale 25% off to $7.xx and with the $5 from my Level 1 certificate I paid $2.xx for this little pretty .
