Spring cleaning at Meijer!

Spring is just around the corner and for me that means throwing out the old and replacing it with new. You know, that bottle of body lotion that has about 1/4 left? You bought it a year ago. Time to let go. Those vitamins? They expired last month. Toss them out. The leftover SPF from last summer? Definitely toss! You need new stuff so you aren’t taking a chance with the health of your skin. Meijer has tons of great products – the range is fantastic, and you will find everything you need after spring cleaning and purging all the old beauty products. Meijer sent me samples of lots of excellent items that won’t break the bank. Here are some of my favorites.

Nature's Bounty Shake Mix and Gummies

Be very careful with health items like vitamins and shake mixes. They expire, then they don’t do your body any good at all. Toss all your old stuff and consider Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies and Complete Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix. The Gummies are like a total candy treat so you won’t forget them…and you will end up with strong, shiny hair, glowy skin, and super strong nails. (Remember eating gelatin like crazy to get strong nails??  Now you can just eat gummies!). The Complete Protein Shake is really delicious and I love that it has flaxseed and is low sugar.

Banana Boat Dry Balance and Hawaiian Tropic Weightless Spray

No question, you need to toss all your SPF from last summer and invest in some good quality stuff for this year. Meijer has two of my favorites. The Banana Boat Dry Balance has 50+ SPF is perfect for kids because the lotion dries immediately and doesn’t leave skin sticky. My choice for my skin is the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Clear Spray Sunscreen. It has SPF 30, sprays on like silk, and smells like every sunny day at the beach I have stored in my memory banks.Colgate productsA bright smile is a terrific way to bring in the new season! For whitening strips, I prefer Crest 3D White. They don’t foam up and taste nasty like other strips I have used. And I always buy Colgate products for toothpaste and mouthwash. I really only like brushing with toothpaste…gel is not for me, and the Optic White really makes teeth look brighter.  Meijer has all the dental products I love!Dove products

I am also a huge Dove fan and of course Meijer has the entire line. Terrific basics that should be in every bathroom include the Shower Foam, Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, and Advanced Care Invisible Deodorant.  Pick these up to replace all of those almost empty bottles!Olay productsAnd speaking of staples, I always have these two on hand – the Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus Body Wash is pure luxury…the cleansing foam feel truly decadent. And you can’t go wrong with Olay Regenerist Micro-Scultping Cream. It’s fantastic hydration for your face and neck.

Here is your inspiration to start cleaning and tossing…and then start shopping! Spring is so close I can almost smell the flowers…start it off with these fantastic body products from Meijer.  – Lisa

Beauty items to stock up on! Bargains for Meijer Fall Beauty Week

L'Oreal Root Cover Up and Yes to Carrots Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion

I have been loving Facebook lately because of all the awesome ‘back to school’ photos. I don’t care how old you are, there is something magical about this time of year…new beginnings, new friends, and even better – new beauty products! Fall is the perfect time to finish up the products you got for summer and replenish your stash. I’ve partnered with Meijer in anticipation of their Fall Beauty Week that starts September 11th and here are four items to stock up on that are worth the extra closet and drawer space.

Dove Men CareDove Deep Moisture Hydrating Body Wash

1.Body wash. I’ve been using Dove Body Wash forever, so I am happy to see that these will be on sale at Meijer during Fall Beauty Week. If the men in your life are like mine, they resist body wash in favor of bar soap…but I think the Dove Clean Comfort will change their minds. This is an excellent multi-purpose soap that works for body and face, and it has a refreshing outdoorsy scent that isn’t overwhelming.

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste
2. Toothpaste. We all need toothpaste and there are so many options out there (and so many on sale next week!), but I hope you will try my favorite, Colgate Optic White Platinum. I am totally stocking up on this – I prefer a paste over a gel, and this one makes teeth visibly whiter in just three days.Yes to Carrots Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion

3.  Body lotion. Lotion is a year round must-have and I know I panic when I don’t have back up bottles. I am loving the Yes to Coconut Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion because it seems perfect in every sort of weather – it’s light, so it feels great even in hot and sticky weather. It’s super hydrating, so it’s perfect for dry winter skin.  t’s also so nice to have a spray lotion, which makes application easy and convenient. This was even a 2014 Allure Best of Beauty Winner.

L'Oreal Root Cover Up
4.  Root cover up. Gals who color their hair have a deep understanding of the nightmare that begins with the dreaded last spray of root cover up. I always have three bottles of this on hand…any less and I start to panic. The L’Oreal Root Cover Up is perfect for instantly touching up roots, and the money saved by stretching out time between hair appointments is incredible. Stock up while this is on sale!!

So many of my favorite items are on sale next week that I have a whole other post with skin care recommendations. These four items are the ones to buy multiples of for the upcoming winter – take advantage of the wonderful prices on these fantastic products during Fall Beauty Week at Meijer!  – Lisa
