3 Ways To Save Money On Hair Care

3 Ways To Save Money On Hair Care

Hair care can add up quick. Between the shampoo, conditioner, product, and visits to the hairdresser you may find yourself handing over quite a bit of cash to tame your locks. This great article from the Huffington Post that compares several women, and shows how much they spend on their hair per year. Annual hair investment varied from $900 to well over $10,000. The woman who spent over $10,000 compared her hair to taking care of vintage lace and called it her crown. While the high end of that example may be some extreme hair love, there is no doubt that hair care can easily drain your wallet. By trimming back your hair routine budget with these ideas, you can save yourself some cash every year.

Low Maintenance Hair Salon Trips

When I go to a hairdresser, I try to be clear about my expectations. Most of the time I want a low maintenance cut that will grow out well. I bring a few pictures from my favourite haircuts and hair days on my phone to illustrate what I am looking for. I am fortunate enough now to have found a hairdresser with a home salon that cuts back on the price of the services I receive.

Your hairstyle makes a huge difference as to the amount of hair maintenance you will pay in trims, colouring and product. Real Simple magazine has a great article with several low maintenance haircut ideas. Take some time, talk to your hairdresser and find a low maintenance style that works with your hair.

I love getting colour in my hair, but I tend to save it for a treat. Usually in spring, I lighten up my hair for the warmer weather. I stick to highlights that are not too far from my hair colour so I do not have to spend continual money back in the salon touching it up. I also love the recent ombre and balayage trends with hair that they are discussing over on Brit+Co. If you ask your hairstylist to help you create this trend using your natural hair colour as the base, it grows out easily without much upkeep since the top is darker than the bottom.

Cut Down On Washing Your Hair

3 Ways To Save Money On Hair Care

This is a tough one for many people, but your hair does not need to be washed with shampoo daily. According to WebMD you can skip shampoo pretty regularly, going up to a week between washes depending on your hair type. Shampoo can dry hair out, so skipping shampoo can actually result in healthier hair.

Allure magazine says the curlier your hair is, the less often you need to wash it. People who have straight hair need to wash their hair several times per week, as the natural oils in your hair will literally wick down your hair faster. Curly hair folks can go as long as a week between shampoo sessions.

I would not recommend going cold turkey when dropping your shampoo routine. Slowly phase out your shampoo to give the oil levels in your scalp a chance to adjust. I had an awesome hairdresser who really encouraged me to cut down on the shampoo I used. She suggested using just conditioner when I showered, giving my hair a fresh feeling without drying it out. I have managed to cut my shampoo consumption in half.  If you have trouble with oily hair while trying to reduce your shampoo usage, try a dry shampoo to help ease your hair into the new routine.

Cut Down On Hair Product

3 Ways To Save Money On Hair Care

Hair product such as gel, mousse, serums and hairspray is a variable expense. Like many people, I found a combination of products I like and I tend to stick to it. The two Aveda products I like combined cost $62 and rarely are on sale. I used to purchase the products six to eight times a year, totaling $372 to $496.

Try to find an inexpensive product that works with your hair. For my wavy hair, I go to Herbal Essences Naked Volumizing Soufflé at $2.47 per bottle. I tried this product as a free sample and ended up liking the light hold. On normal days, I swap in my inexpensive product. I save my expensive products for the days I want my hair to look spectacular. Just from switching between the products regularly, I now buy the same Aveda products about three times per year and spend $186.

I try to grab free samples when I can to reduce the costs of trying new products. If you did not wash your hair that day, try wetting your hair with a spray bottle to reactivate your hair product before adding more. This allows you to use less hair product to style your hair on the second day.

Looking for more ideas on how to cut costs on your routine for your mane? Check out this great article from Claire on how to save money on your next haircut.

Walmart Canada: Olay Skin Smoothing Cream Scrub Only $1 & Free Shipping *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 22, 2015 at 1:40 PM

Walmart Canada: Olay Skin Smoothing Cream Scrub Only $1 & Free Shipping *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Walmart Canada has some really beautiful deals in their clearance section. I ran across a bottle of Olay Skin Smoothing Cream Scrub on sale from $8.97 down to $1 with free shipping!

I love deals like this – who ever thought there would be dollar deals online with free shipping? It must cost Walmart Canada a small fortune in shipping costs – but buyers really get to profit from such deals. The Olay Skin Smoothing Cream Scrub comes in a 177 ml bottle. It is an oil free formula designed to smooth your skin – leaving it brightened and clean.

Olay has a description for the cream on their website:

A conditioning beta-hydroxy formula with microbeads cleanses skin deeply while gently exfoliating to rejuvenate skin, leaving it radiant and noticeably smooth.

I have not used Olay products ever, but my Mom uses them. I might buy this and mail it away to my Mom as a small surprise. I do not know about you, but I love receiving random gifts in the mail that I really did not expect.

Now, there are a few other deals I would be remiss not to mention. This L’Oréal Hair Expertise Re-Nutrition is on sale from $8.96 down to $2 with free shipping. This shampoo is formulated with Royal Jelly and is great for restoring moisture and shine to your hair.

I also found this box of Nice’n’Easy Perfect 10 hair dye on sale from $13.96 down to $2 in lightest cool brown. The other colour still available is full price. I have never died my hair, but I figure $2 is a great price if you are experimenting with a new colour. Light brown looks really good on many different skin tones. I have dark, sandy blond hair that looks brown when wet.

I really like deals that are so cheap it seems a crime not to purchase them. While the hair dye might not be for everyone, almost anyone (male or female) can use the smoothing skin scrub and the shampoo. Pick up a few bottles for yourself or send a few to family members in need. You could even buy a bunch to donate to your local shelter. Shampoo would especially be popular.

L’Occitane Canada: Free Collector’s Hand Cream Tin + 2 Free Mini Shea Butter Hand Creams

Posted by on March 20, 2015 at 9:52 PM

LOccitane Canada: Free Collectors Hand Cream Tin + 2 Free Mini Shea Butter Hand Creams

Want some free hand creams? L’Occitane is currently offering 3 freebies: a free collector’s hand cream tin and two free mini shea butter hand creams. There are two ways to get these freebies: one includes a purchase and the other doesn’t. So keep reading to find out more!

Once you sign up for this freebie, you will be presented with two ways of redeeming it: either via a coupon code or in-stores.

First thing’s first though, once you click on the link above, you will be asked to be a little social with L’Occitane. You will need to either like them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, follow them on Google + or follow them on Instagram. You can certainly do all four but just one will suffice as well. The second request, that of sharing the offer, is optional but you can do this as well if you wish.

After you enter your name and e-mail address, you will immediately receive an e-mail with the L’Occitane promo code: CASHCS that you will need to enter online on any order over $25. Keep in mind that L’Occitane only ships orders over $59 for free and that if your order doesn’t reach that threshold, then a $9.99 flat shipping rate will apply.

LOccitane Canada: Free Collectors Hand Cream Tin + 2 Free Mini Shea Butter Hand Creams

The other alternative is to print the e-mail (but not the image above!) you receive and bring it to a L’Occitane store near you to get these freebie with no purchase necessary. This is by far the best option as you won’t need to buy anything. The code in the e-mail is unique, so only one person can redeem it but if you go with your partner or friend, then both of you could claim the offer and then print it.

We have heard rumours of L’Occitane employees being in the dark about offers like these but just make sure to show them the e-mail as that’s all the proof you need!

These L’Occitane freebies are only available while supplies last and so, although it’s set to expire in April, it might expire within seconds of this post going live, just as it can expire in a couple of days or even week. One thing is for sure though: don’t wait to redeem it. The last time that Avigayil wrote about a L’Occitane freebie, it ended that same day! We were both lucky to have redeemed it in time but we know that many other Moosers weren’t. So again, don’t wait!

Well.ca: 75% off Nature’s Harmony Vitamins

Posted by on March 12, 2015 at 1:36 PM

Well.ca: 75% off Natures Harmony Vitamins

Well.ca is offering 75% off Nature’s Harmony vitamins. Nature’s Harmony vitamins are Canadian made and vegetarian.

There are five bottles of vitamins on substantial discount. The Nature’s Harmony Coenzyme Q10 were $47.99 and are now on sale for $11.99. In one bottle, you receive 50 pills with 100mg each.

Next, the Nature’s Harmony Quercetin Blood Vessel Protectant is on sale from $19.96 down to $4.99. There are 60 tablets that are 500 mg each. For those with allergies or environmental sensitivities, this is a helpful supplement. One reviewer said:

I’ve been taking Quercetin since December to help bring my asthma and allergies under control, and it has helped; added benefit – no colds or flu since taking them! I like these because they are the same quality but MUCH more affordable than the ones I was taking.

Next, pick up the Nature’s Harmony High Potency Once Per Day Timed Release that was $29.96, and is now $7.49. This high-potency supplement comes in vegetarian capsules and is iron free. While iron is important for women, as we will lose iron during our period, men are better to have an iron free formula. One reviewer said:

I have been using this for 3 years, it has made a difference in my skin tone and energy level

If you are low on your omegas, then look into a bottle or two of Nature’s Harmony Premium Triple Fish Oil With Flax and Borage. Originally $29.46, this supplement is on sale for $7.39. Each of the 150 capsules has 1200 mg inside.

Lastly, Nature’s Harmony Completely Cranberry was $16.96, and is now only $4.24 per bottle. I am not too familiar with this supplement, but Cranberry appears to be used to maintain a healthy urinary track. All five of these supplements are on sale for quite the discount. My only concern with seeing vitamins so cheap is the expiry date. I have no idea when these vitamins expire.

I wanted to mention two other deals while I am at it. This Quest Cal-Mag Complete was $14.99 and is now $3.74. None of the other vitamins is a dedicated calcium supplement, so this is a good vitamin to buy with the others.

Totally not related to vitamins, this Urban Spa Perfect Pedi Kit is a fantastic buy. Originally $8.79, the pedi kit is on sale for $2.19. There is a maximum of two per person.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Rexall Printable Coupon: $5 Off $25

Posted by on March 11, 2015 at 5:30 PM

Rexall Printable Coupon: $5 Off $25

The very popular $5 off $25 printable coupon for Rexall is back. Print out the attached coupon and take it in to your store for redemption.

I used to frequent Shoppers, but my local post office – where I pick up parcels – is inside a Rexall. That makes it very convenient to pick up all those little things I need. If I am running short of milk or bread, then I can grab a jug and a loaf at my local Rexall. My last purchase was a huge container of Epson salts so I could soak my aching body and feet. I found the price quite good for a large bottle that lasted for many baths. Of course, the price would have been better with this printable coupon.

The $5 off $25 coupon is valid for most products. However, the following items are excluded: prescriptions, products containing codeine, Rexall/PharmaPlus Gift Cards, Gift Card Express, lottery, postal services and stamps, transit tickets, prepaid phone cards, and taxes. These $5 off $25 coupons used to exclude baby diapers and baby formula, but thankfully that has changed. Now parents can grab a few necessities for the new baby and save $5 on them too.

This coupon can be applied against food, perfume, vitamins, personal care products, and so much more. I would use this for another container of Epson salts, but this would also be a nice discount on a bottle of perfume or on some of those yummy Burt Bee’s lip balms and body creams. Rexall often has good deals on chips and chocolate, so this coupon could be used for a good night binge. If you want to combine this printable coupon with current in store sales, then check out the Rexall eFlyer. Deals will vary by region.

There is a limit of one (1) coupon per person, per day. The coupon cannot be used in conjunction with any other Rexall coupon or special offer like this.

All Rexall coupons will be posted up on the Bargainmoose coupon forum.

Consonant Skincare: 20% Off All Body Care Products + Extra 10% Off Every Hour For Up To 70% Off Total! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 9, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Consonant Skincare: 20% Off All Body Care Products + Extra 10% Off Every Hour For Up To 70% Off Total! (EXPIRED)

Consonant Skincare is currently offering a gamble of a promotion. Starting at exactly 10am EST, all body lotions and washes will be reduced by 20%. Every hour from then on, all of these body care products will be reduced by an additional 10% for up to 70% off in total.

Now, Consonant Skincare doesn’t specificy when exactly this promotion is set to end. So it’s either at the end of the final hour, while supplies last or at the end of the day. Wait at your own peril, but here’s the basic discount schedule we’re looking at:

  • 10am: 20% off
  • 11am: 30% off
  • 12pm: 40% off
  • 1pm: 50% off
  • 2pm: 60% off
  • 3pm: 70% off

This promotion is definitely cool but the biggest gamble is not knowing how many quantities are left of a specific item. So you could be waiting for the clock to turn to 3pm for instance, only to have the item sell out one minute before! Plus, we don’t even know if items will sell out quickly or not. In any case, it’s still a great promotion to check out and perhaps the best course of action would be to set an alarm to check back their page at exactly 3pm today.

I admit that I have never tried any Consonant products but just browsing around their inventory of body lotions and washes, the organic body lotion – citrus bergamot caught my eye. Originally priced at $22, it’s down to $17.60 with the 20% discount and could get reduced all the way down to just $6.60 if it doesn’t sell out by 3pm. It’s described as being formulated with antioxidants that condition the skin and leave it feeling soft right away. This body lotion has 4 reviews with a total rating of 5/5 stars with happy comments like this one:

Finally a healthy lotion that smells good, this time I got the largest size available with the pump. Every time I get out of the shower I lather up with this lotion, love it!

Sounds like a great product for sure, especially if you can get it for under $15! Consonant Skincare: 20% Off All Body Care Products + Extra 10% Off Every Hour For Up To 70% Off Total! (EXPIRED) Luckily, there are plenty more products to choose from, some with helpful reviews as well.

Shipping is free on orders over $75.

Trade Secrets: Kazen Touch Screen Flat Iron Was $160 | Now $90 & Free Shipping Plus Free Gift

Posted by on March 7, 2015 at 7:00 AM

Trade Secrets: Kazen Touch Screen Flat Iron Was $160 | Now $90 & Free Shipping Plus Free Gift

Trade Secrets has got a fabulous deal on the Kazen touch screen flat iron right now. Regularly $159.95, they have it on sale for only $89.95. On top of this, you get free shipping, plus a free gift.

I remember shopping at Trade Secrets when they first opened thinking that it was a store only for beauty professionals. They had so much fun stuff! I like that they are mainstream now and anyone can shop there and get all the best beauty deals.

My hair straightener is getting on its last legs. A new one might be a good purchase while I can get a great deal on it. This flat iron has nano-technology and is made from tourmaline and ceramic to give you the straightest and least frizzy doo. It also purifies and protects your hair while styling, which is what you’ll need if you heat style on a regular basis.

This flat iron is super cool because it has a touchscreen that lets you choose the temperature you want to set the flat iron at. You can then lock it so you don’t accidentally press the buttons and make it hotter or cooler. It also shuts off after 60 minutes of inactivity for those of us who have a million distractions in the morning and might forget to turn it off.

This flat iron sells for quite a bit more than this sale price at all of the other stores I checked it out at in Canada. With a regular price of $213.99 at Keep Beautiful, it is on sale for Trade Secret’s regular price. Canada Beauty Supply sells it for $160 and so does Fabove.

This 5-star review was on Fabove:

My mom’s got REALLY curly thick hair, but it’s fairly short. She’s got TWO- one for the gym, and one she uses just every day because it’s small so she can get really close to the roots. Works great!

On top of getting free shipping, you’ll also get a free gift with this purchase. Because your purchase is over $55, you’ll get the It’s a 10 miracle styling serum worth $43.15.

Marcelle Canada Promo Code: 40% Off Everything For 4 Days

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 12:11 PM

Marcelle Canada Promo Code: 40% Off Everything For 4 Days

Because you are a woman and International Woman’s Day is coming up, Marcelle is celebrating with 40% off everything on their site with coupon code.

Click here to shop @ Marcelle.com now

  • Coupon Code: WOMEN
  • Discount: 40% off
  • Expiry: 8th March 2015

With March comes different weather, which also means different needs for your skin. I find I don’t need my thick moisturizer once I can turn off the heat at my house. Similarly, I need more of a stronger cleanser with my skin becoming sweaty with the heat outside.

I’ve actually never tried any of the BB, CC, or DD creams on the market. Now could be the time with this 40% off coupon. Marcelle’s beauty balm cream says that skin will appear lifted. Since I’m almost 40, I would choose the anti-aging cream with SPF, which is regularly $28.95. Adding it to my cart with the coupon code brings this product down to $17.37, which is quite the saving.

Because you’ll want to get your cart up to $50 to get free shipping, keep shopping all of these hot deals and don’t stop at the face cream.

With Mother’s Day coming up, the gift sets are a fantastic deal for Mom. The revival pro sculpt gift set has a value of $103.80 and sells for $53.95. Add it to your cart with the coupon code and the gift set comes down to $32.87. The cream alone costs more than this, so this is a seriously fantastic deal.

I actually might get the new-age precision gift set for myself. I’ve tried the makeup remover before and was quite impressed with it. This set is regularly $49.95 with a $90.18 value in products. Your final total for this set comes down to $29.97. If I just wanted the makeup remover on its own, it sells for $14.95, but with coupon will come down to $7.47, which is fantastic. What’s also fantastic are the reviews for this product:

You only need a small amount and makeup instantly comes off. I have sensitive eyes and this formula doesn’t bother them at all!

Wagjag: 6-pk Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($52 Value) – Just $19

Posted by on March 1, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Wagjag: 6 pk Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($52 Value)    Just $19

Ladies, do you ever leave the house without mascara? I sure don’t and since I go through tubes like there is no tomorrow, here’s a lovely deal I found at WagJag: right now, you can get a pack of 6 Maybelline Great Lash mascaras for just $19, which comes down to just $3.17 per tube! You can choose between very black or brownish black.

I have a real issue with mascara. I tend to apply it, apply it and then apply it some more, all the while getting it all over my eyelids. I’m sure it’s not necessary at all to do it this much but to me it feels like, the more I put on, the longer they get, but the problem with this method is that I go through a lot more tubes than I should.

In any case, did you know that you should get rid of your mascara every three months anyways because of the accumulation of bacteria? Seeing as to how each tube of mascara usually retails for upwards of $6, sometimes even $10 depending on the brand you get, this WagJag deal is definitely well worth redeeming.

In fact, our very own Anna had this to say about this mascara:

I’ve used many types of mascara over the years and in my memory, one of the best performers was the Maybelline Great Lash. I haven’t actually used it in a few years, as I have been gifted other brands for birthdays and Christmases. But from what I recall, it was a really great consistency, and it never clumped up on the brush or on the eyelashes. It was easy to apply, looked great, and easy to remove too. I personally recommend this mascara!

Oddly enough, certain other HealthSnap offers on WagJag, like the 4 Essie nail polish for $19 deal that Eva wrote about recently, also come with a processing fee but this one shouldn’t, especially since the fine print specifies the following: “tax and processing fee charged on merchant’s website“.

At Walmart, the Maybelline Great Lash mascara is currently on rollback for either $3.56 or $4.96 depending on the shade of black that you get. That’s still more expensive than WagJag’s deal and for all you brown lovers out there, the brown is completely sold out, whereas it’s available at WagJag.

Shipping is free but if you want to get your order quicker, you can choose to pick it up at select Health Snap stores instead.

Clarins Private Sale: Super Restorative Day Cream Was $115 | Now $80 & Up To 40% Other Favourites

Posted by on February 27, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Clarins Private Sale: Super Restorative Day Cream Was $115 | Now $80 & Up To 40% Other Favourites

Clarins is having a super secret sale that I’m going to let you in on. They’ve got up to 40% off a number of their best products and after shopping around, I’ve found that there are some pretty hot deals. The Super Restorative day cream is on sale and definitely a deal you don’t want to miss. Regularly $115, it is now down to $80.50.

As we age, I find our beauty regime changes. We don’t mind spending top dollar on products that actually help our skin. I’ve been looking at myself lately wondering what I should do with my tired looking skin. I think I need to up the ante and pay more than $20 for my day cream. With the heat blasting all day at my house, my skin is rebelling and is super dry and dull. This cream says it visibly corrects deep lines. That sounds good to me. It has so many great reviews too:

I have been using the super restorative line for several years and love it. I have tried other brands but nothing compares. I am in my late 40’s and this gives my skin the perfect amount of moisture without feeling greasy plus I love the way my skin feels after I use it. I am hooked for life!

If you like night cream, that one is also on sale, for just $1 more. Regularly $117, you’ll get it for $81.90. If your skin is super dry, you’ll want the very dry skin formula.

Just to show you what kind of deal this is, I shopped around and found this item for $122 at Hudson’s Bay.

There are quite a few other items on sale during this sale and another I’m really interested in is the instant light eye perfecting base. Dark circles are plaguing me and I want them gone! Regularly $26, it is now $15.60.

Clarins offers free shipping on orders over $75, so you’ll get that bonus with the creams. You’ll also get three free samples with every order.

Remington Womens Smooth and Silky Wet/Dry Face & Body Epilator Was $85 Now $39 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

The Remington Women’s Smooth and Silky Wet/Dry Face & Body Epilator is on sale @ Amazon.ca today. It was $84.99 but you can grab one for yourself now for only $39. Free super saver shipping is included with this product.

Like the smoothness of waxing but hate the hassle of wax? If you have not tried an epilator before, then now is your chance to try one on a great discount. An epilator is not for the faint of heart, but ladies we are strong and tough. We stand up to all sorts of painful body treatments in order to maintain our… feminine mystique. An epilator is a great choice for an at home hair removal system, especially if you fall into one of the following categories.

  • You are tired of paying a stranger to rip wax and hair out of your legs and other areas.
  • You have ever tried to wax at home and had it be a disaster. (Me too ladies!)
  • You hate spending the time to shave regularly.
  • You hate the ingrown hairs that shaving can cause.
  • You want a hair removal system that is portable and quick.

Enter the Remington Women’s Smooth and Silky Wet/Dry Face & Body Epilator. This epilator has a rechargeable battery that operates cordlessly. It comes with 40 tweezers inside to pull out every last hair. It has 2 speeds; one for coarse and one for hair that is fine. This epilator also includes a pivoting cap equipped with aloe vera to ensure you can tweeze the hairs on your face, neck or other more sensitive areas easily. A tip for beginners, make sure you exfoliate your skin first, which will stop ingrown hairs especially in more sensitive areas.

I only managed to find this model of epilator at London Drugs for a whopping $79.99. A similar epilator at Walmartwith terrible reviews, is selling for $52.97. I would skip both of those and buy this version from Amazon instead.

Mostly reviewers are happy with the epilator. Now some women may purchase this product not expecting that an epilator can be painful. It can be a little worse the first use when you have a little more hair to remove Here is one honest reviewer that seems pretty happy with the purchase overall.

Works great! Love that it is cordless and rechargeable.. also that it can be used in the tub. For anyone considering an epilator, I recommend – good quality for the price (I got on sale for a little over $60). Comes with a head for smaller areas – I recommend using this for the first time trying it (less painful when doing a smaller area at a time). Worked great on my legs and underarms and LOVE not having to shave every 2nd day.. Make sure to exfoliate to prevent ingrown hairs. Plan to try on my bikini area next Remington Womens Smooth and Silky Wet/Dry Face & Body Epilator Was $85 Now $39 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED) Wish me luck!

I may pick up this epilator myself. Summer is coming after all, and I spend a fortune on fancy Venus razors. I would much rather have longer spurts in between my shaving or waxing escapades.

WagJag Canada: $19 For 4 Essie Nail Polishes & Free Shipping

WagJag Canada: $19 For 4 Essie Nail Polishes & Free Shipping

WagJag’s got a great deal on right now that will delight the fashionista and the philanthropist in you. Buy four Essie nail polishes for $19 and get free shipping, which is a $48 value, and all of the proceeds will go to the Because I am a Girl initiative.

With this deal you’ll get four Essie nail polishes with your choice out of 40 colours. You’ll have to redeem the deal at HealthSnap and the deal will also include free shipping from them. You could also opt to pick up from your local pharmacy, but why would you if it gets shipped to your house free? Usually HealthSnap offers free shipping at $50, so this is a bonus with this deal.

Each nail polish sells for $9.99 on their site, so I’m assuming the extra $8 quoted in the $48 value is the shipping you are saving. Essentially then, you are getting two nail polishes and shipping free.

Shopping around, Walmart sells Essie for $8.96 a bottle. Nail Polish Canada sells them for $7.95 each, or a 4-pack of selected colours for $30. Well.ca sells them for $10 a bottle. As you can see, WagJag’s deal is the best one, saving you about $16-20 over the competitor’s prices.

With Mother’s Day sort of coming up, this might be a gift you can get early, or you can obviously keep it all to yourself. Most women appreciate a gift of nail polish because I think a lot of us wear it. I don’t wear it on my fingers but I do always wear it on my toes. It is my pet peeve not to have colour on my toes because I think the plain toenail look looks kind of sick.

I love that this deal also gives 100% of net proceeds to the Because I am a Girl initiative. Through Plan Canada, this donation helps girls go to school in developing countries. You might want to get a couple of these deals (two maximum), just to help out as much as you can.

Also note that HealthSnap will charge a $2 tax and processing fee at checkout after you enter your voucher.
