Shopping Til I Drop: CVS: Rose Scented Savings

Posted by & filed under , , , , , , , , , .


Today’s CVS trip was a lightning quick one (I had frozen food and groceries waiting in the car.) I was flying through the store, checking items off my list at a quick clip… until I hit the cosmetics section. My eyes glazed over while staring at the dull rack of basic Revlon nail polishes. There are only so many shades of mauve one can stand in their cosmetics bag. Stepping back from the shelf, I almost bumped into a freestanding Revlon display with a new line of nail polishes: Parfumerie. The hot pink polish grabbed my eye immediately and the price was definitely right! I tossed it into the basket and booked it to the checkout.

I didn’t realize until after I got home that the Parfumerie nail polish is scented! I guess the name should have been a dead giveaway. My nails smell like roses! It’s the neatest thing, but the “fancy smell magic” happens after the polish dries… so don’t crack open the bottle and take a big ol’ whiff (and then get an instant headache, like I did). 😉

I’ll be making a second trip to CVS later this week. I wanted to wait for this week’s Coupon Machine goodies to see if anything relevant to this week’s sale popped up (c’mooon vitamin coupon)!
