Deal Alert: CVS Semi Annual Clearance 50%-75%

Once again it is time for the semi-annual CVS clearance on drugstore makeup. It officially starts on November 14th 2014 but I heard some CVS locations were starting theirs early. Indeed a few were. I checked out 4 in the San Diego area and 2 has not started yet and the other 2 had. I here is my haul if you want to see what i got.

Lots of 50% off to 75% off I saw Physcian's Formula, Covergirl, Revlon, NYC Color, Wet N Wild, NYX, Rimmel, Neutrogena, Milani, Sally Hansen just to name a few. Note that many CVS's do not mark these things as clearance but if you use the scanner you can verify they are before purchasing.

The wonderful Blog I reference in the video is from Nouveau Cheap.

*One interesting note and this has never happened to me before for the CVS Semi-Annual clearance before but the CVS closest to my house has nothing on clearance! I triple checked on three different trips and days to the one on Scripps Poway in San Diego. Rest assured fellow Scripps Ranch and San Diego people the rest of the CVS' I visited clearanced now (November 21. 2014)

Equitance Brightening Serum

Hello Beauties!

If any of you know me, I am all about finding the best brightening serums for the most part. I swear by them to lighten up old acne scars and fade sun spots. So I was really excited when I received the Equitance Brightening & Spot Corrector Serum from influenster complimentary for testing purposes. Finally a product right up my alley!

The card that came with this product it reads:

"Clinically proven to reduce the appearance of dark discolorations"
"Patented technology that delivers clinically proven brightening ingredient to the skin"
"83% of women reported diminished appearance of dark spots"
"*Based on clinical study after 4 months. Study conducted and evaluated by a dermatologist"

A 30g size of this product retails for $125. You are supposed to apply 2-3 drops on your face in the morning and evenings. For a brightening serum this price is about mid-range.

I've been using this for about 2 weeks now after my toner and before my moisturizer. I do not own the whole line of products shown in their brochure and website to use in conjunction with each other. I have not used the product long enough to know if it is making a difference. However, I would really really love to win a whole set and test the whole line out. I feel like I would be the perfect candidate!

If any of you would like try products from Equitance I have a promo code that expires November 20th 2014. With code INFL15 you will receive 15% off their brightening & spot correcting serum and a trial starter kit worth $37. They also have free shipping with any order.
