Walgreen Products for your Next Vacay!

This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Walgreens.

When Joe called me from work to tell me that he had won a cruise through his office, I almost collapsed on the floor! We were both SOOOO excited/nervous (we have never been on a cruise before)---and yet, there was SO much to do to prepare for this fun filled 5 day excursion.
02 february 2011 165

First on my list- was trying to figure out how to get all of the supplies that we needed without breaking the bank! Sun products, motion sickness items, etc.---these things can get pricey. We are on a very tight budget in the Steece household (can I getta “AMEN” from all of you hard workers out there??!)- so I needed to find cheaper items without sacrificing the quality of the items.
That’s where Walgreens came into the picture. I was given a $50 gift card to try out some Walgreens Brand Health and Wellness products! It couldn’t have been better timing!
02 february 2011 001

Walgreens Motion Sickness Relief: $5.99 (So we won’t be puking our guts out on the ship)
02 february 2011 004
Its competitor: $7.99, You save $2.00!

Walgreens Continuous Spray Sunscreen: $7.99 (So we won’t be tending to 3rd degree sunburns all week)
02 february 2011 006
Its competitor: $9.99, You save $2.00!

Walgreens WAL-BORN: $5.99 (So the lady in front of us who is coughing and sneezing- will not infect us)
02 february 2011 003
Its competitor: $6.99, You save $1.00!

Walgreens One Daily Energy Vitamins: $5.99 (So I can keep up with my crazy husband who has endless energy)
02 february 2011 005
Its competitor: $8.99, You save $3.00!

Walgreens Spin Toothbrush: $6.49 (to take care of that funky morning breath)
02 february 2011 007
Its competitor: $8.49, You save $2.00!

In addition to being an exceptional value, Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products:
a.        Are Walgreens pharmacist recommended.
b.        Most contain the same active ingredients as other national brands.
c.        Have a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
I’m sold on it the products! They are absolutely 100% just as effective as the name brands- and SO MUCH CHEAPER! I was able to save a total of $10.00 on my cruise supplies!
Which allowed me to use that money toward more *FUN* things! Yippieee!

When my family has a headache my favorite is the Walgreen's Ibuprofen. My husband likes the vitamins. And I go for the hand lotions. Another favorite is the photo shop..I love shopping at the photo shop at Walgreens, why lie....

I am almost out of another store brand benydryl, and I would like to try the Wal-dryl next.

I'd like to try the Walgreen's sunscreen - it's a must have item, but so expensive! Especially when I feel the need to apply it on my toddler every 5 minutes!

Brooke said...

I do buy their vitamins. And you can usually score a deal. Thanks for the chance!

Definitely motion sickness pills. I have SEVERE motion sickness and I don't know how many bottles of the name brand pills I have gone through, but they get SO expensive! Guess I should give the store brand a try!

I actually recently tried their ear wax buildup removal kit and it worked great, was all natural, and about $5 less than the name brand!

I want to try their equivalent of Cold Eeze. They were buy 1 get 1 free one week, but there weren't any on the shelves. That would save A LOT of money - IF they don't bother our stomachs the way some of the other store brands do.

We are planning our first beach getaway with our 18mo triplets soon and must haves will include the aerosol sunscreen, Wal-Borne, contact lens solution, sound machine, Aloe Vera gel and of course spray disinfectant for the room to spray knobs, remotes, ect.
I stop in Walgreens at least twice a week, so a $100 gift card would be sweet. Especially with Easter coming up.
I also wanted to share with your readers info on the Walgreen's Prescription Discount Card:
https://webapp.walgreens.com/MYWCARDWeb/servlet/walgreens.wcard.proxy.WCardInternetProxy/RxSavingsRH
Aside from saving you money on your prescriptions, it also gives you 10% off ALL Walgreen brand items! I use this card all the time. When my renewal comes up next month, I'm going to upgrade to the family plan so that it will include my pet medications. Walgreen's is my favorite store, along with Target.
And ladies, They always have buy 1, get 1 50% off makeup. For example one week they'll do L'Orael & Cover Girl, then Revlon & Maybelline the next. If you buy something that you think will look good on you and you get home and it doesn't, the will let you return the item(s), no problems, no fuss! What other store gives you that peace of mind?
Good luck everyone!
