Spring cleaning at Meijer!
*This is a sponsored post, all opinions my own*

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

Best skin care trends for back to school

Best skin care trends for back to school

I can’t believe all the terrific beauty products on sale at Meijer next week for their Fall Beauty Week – everything needed to take care of yourself from tips to toes. Here are some of my skin care picks, including an awesome tote bag set to carry all those goodies!                                                                 samples

Modella 9 Piece Tote Set

Modella 9 Piece Tote Set

I am loving this tote bag set! The Modella 9 Piece Tote Set is a great bargain to begin with, and an even better bargain during Fall Beauty Week. The bags are waterproof and easy to clean, and there’s a size for every possible need you might have.

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

If you haven’t tried Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water yet, now is your chance. It’s an excellent cleanser especially for those nights when all you want to do is fall into bed. You won’t skip washing your face when all it takes is a cotton pad – the Micellar Cleansing Water attracts dirt and oil, so no water or scrubbing is necessary.

derma e Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate Creme

If you have very dry skin and want something that moisturizes and treats wrinkles, definitely try the derma e Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate Creme. Retinyl Palmitate is pure Vitamin A, one of the best antioxidants available. Be sure to use a spatula so you don’t accidentally contaminate the moisturizer, and pick up some of awesome derma e products in the sample packs if you can. They are perfect for travel or to keep at your desk – just use a pin to prick a hole in the sample pack which helps the product last and keeps it from spilling out.

Olay Eye Cream and Aveeno Absolutely Ageless moisturizers A few more skin care recommendations that you can find on sale next week at the Meijer Fall Beauty Week:  for eyes, check out the Olay Eye Lifting Serum. It has cutting edge ingredients including fantastic antioxidants and peptides and I think it’s one of the best drugstore eye serums available. Two other favorites are from Aveeno’s Absolutely Ageless line. The Daily Moisturizer has excellent broad spectrum sun protection, improves skin texture and tone, and is a great moisturizer for those with combination to oily skin. The Restorative Night Cream is another winner, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles while also firming and toning skin. Great stuff!

Get your shopping list ready – Meijer’s Fall Beauty Week starts September 11th.  – Lisa
