Drugstore Deal of the Century- Physician's Formula at CVS

Okay, I know I said no more hauls.  Well, that lasted about... 2 hours.  But wait, before you judge me, let me explain!  So I knew that Physician's Formula was 40% off this week at CVS.  Physician's Formula is pretty pricey for a drugstore brand so even at 40% off I wasn't going to buy anything.  But then someone left a comment on Nouveau Cheap's post about the weekly drugstore sales that there was a coupon floating around on the internet for $5 off any Physician's Formula.  40% off plus $5 off means you will pay anywhere from nothing to a few bucks per item.  So of course I printed out 50 million coupons (okay, it was 9) and headed over to CVS.  And they took ALL the coupons.  I paid about $15 for $100 worth of makeup.

Oh, before I forget, here is the link to the coupon.

Here is a picture of my receipt (with credit card details blanked out with a noob photoshopper's best friend- clone stamp!)

So these are the 9 items I bought.  4 of the items (the 3 on the right and the eyeshadow) are gifts. I was really hoping to find my favorite drugstore concealer there- Circle Rx Circle Control Concealer, but it was sold out.  Oh well, that just means I get to go buy more stuff at a different CVS!  Oh, and I don't think the concealer makes my dark circles fade at all.  I just love the coverage and the color matches my skin.

So what are you waiting for?  Get thine bum over to CVS NOW!

Thank you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!


  1. You're a lifesaver. I'm totally printing the coupon out. Thanks a bunch. By the way, I have family that lives in your town. :)

  2. Ooh, I can't wait to see what you get! You live in Texas too, right? I'm originally from Austin and I would love to move back but my boyfriend loves his job here so I'm stuck for the time being!

  3. Oooh I miss CVS :( I am orignially from Massachusetts (where there is a CVS on every corner) and live in Oregon now where there are NONE! However, my brother works at CVS, so I may just have to send him on a makeup shopping spree ;-)

  4. Do you really need all three heart compacts? ;) Just kidding, no judgment. Another blogger bought one of those, broke it, then went and got herself a few more as backup. Frankly just looking at them kind of makes me happy!

    Haha, you'll have to make your brother print out and use all the coupons too! Do you have Rite Aid in Oregon? I wish we had them here!

    @ Liz

    Of course I don't NEED them, haha. But I am a blush fanatic and for a buck or two I couldn't say no. Half the stuff I bought is for gifts, though (haha, they'll never know it cost me $1!). Funny thing is that these are the second heart blushes I bought today. I also bought the Stila one from Sephora that I've been wanting with the Beauty Insider 15% off coupon. I'm a sucker for sales.

  6. WOW! You DOMINATED the CVS! I cannot believe how much you got for $17 bucks! You are my sale hero!

  7. We do have Rite Aid here! I haven't been there much....Any tips on what I should check out there??

  8. @ shimmer
    Do you read G's blog, Nouveau Cheap? She is always talking about stuff she gets from Rite Aid. You should check it out if you don't already. I wish I had Rite Aids near me!

  9. Ooh, nope I haven't....going to do some reading up right now ;-) Thanks!

  10. I made a great haul myself thanks to your post, thanks for sharing this :)


Thank you so much for your comments! I appreciate them all and read every one!
