If It’s Free It’s For Me

This is one of my husband’s favorite sayings.  I tease him about it, however I have started examining it more closely.  Now that’s not to say I am taking it to heart litteraly.  But, it does seem to be true.  These days you can find free stuff all around.  You just have to know where to look.  And that’s where we come in.

You can find free stuff in all kinds of places.  I was reading a magazine and they had a list that got me started on this tangent.  It was about cosmetic freebies.  We all know about the advertised ones like our local cosmetic counters at the mall.  However, these were actually free products no purchase neccessary:

www.olay.com/skin-analyzer Sign up for Olay Professional Pro-x and get  FREE headband.  This special headband works when you take a picture of yourself while wearing it and then upload it to Olay’s site; you can get a personalized skin analysis.

www.merlenorman.com  A FREE facial?  Stop by one of their locations fo a 20 minute deep cleansing, brightening, retexturizing, or hydrating facial.  There is a studio in Skippack.  On 4007 Skippack Pike (610) 222-0577

www.waxcenter.com European Wax Center for first time visitors can recieve an eyebrow, bikini, or underarm wax.  There is only one location near us in Horsham.  It is on Welsh rd near the Walmart headed towards Willow Grove.

www.benefitcosmetics.com Stop by the brow bar on your birthday and recieve a complimentary brow wax with ID.  The only location near us is Ulta on Knapp Rd near Montgomery Mall  215-616-4601

Multiple use products:

    This is one I havent heard of before.  Organix Rewewing Moroccan Argan Oil Penetrating Oil $8 @Walmart.  Apparently, you can use this product as frizz control and dry dull hair by creating a shinny healthy look.  You can also use on soften rough skin.  A few drops on those rough areas and the hydrating omega-6 fatty acids are not heavy and your skin won’t feel greasy!

Band-Aid makes a blister stick that you can also use on areas of friction.  Like your cute new sandals that rub on the tops of your feet.  Put it on before your shoes to prevent the blister.  Almost any drug store has it.

Baby wipes: Not just good for baby.  If they are flushable you can also use them in the bathroom, you can use them as make-up removers (some also works to soothe skin), they are good as handy wipes after a meal, or keep in your car and clean your hands after checking your oil.  Another thing I have done is kept them with me when I travel.  It is refreshing while on a long flight or train, or bus ride.  It is a nice refresher in close cramped quarters.

Thanks Adrianna. Good tips for everyone. Channel 6 often has a segment that shares lots of free things/events in the area. Free is always good!!!
