Fashion Finds #2 - Drugstore.com

This week's Fashion Find isn't really a "fashion" find, per se, but it's really awesome nonetheless!

I want to introduce you to www.drugstore.com.  I don't know how I found them--probably through someone else's blog--and it is AWESOME.  It has a wide variety of your typical drugstore products that you can order online and have shipped to your front door!  Plus, it's cheaper than--*gulp*--Target.  There, I said it.  It's a little bittersweet.  You guys know how much I love Target, so for me to buy something from somewhere else when Target carries the item is a BIG DEAL.  Yay for cheaper!  Sad for me to have to say I'm not buying something from Target.  :(

Okay, here's a nice bullet point list of why I'm digging www.drugstore.com.  

  • Wide variety of products.  Sometimes one store doesn't carry a product that I want and I have to go to another store just for that product.  With www.drugstore.com I don't have to drive to different stores to get certain makeup items or different brands/products that I'm attached to.  Hello, time saver!
  • I don't have to worry as much about products being sold out.  I don't know how it is at your Target, but at my local one the products I want are often sold out, especially the makeup items.  It drives me nuts.  
  • Carry some products not sold in stores.  There are a few products that I show in the pic below that I love but are not sold in stores anymore.  I cannot even begin to explain how ecstatic I was to see www.drugstore.com carry them!
  • Ships to your front door.  Always a plus, no?  And the shipping is quite quick!
  • Pharmacy & Contact Lenses.  You can get these products!  I have yet to order either of these types of items, but I love the fact that they're available.
  • Earn cash back for shopping there.  Earn money for buying products I use everyday?  No brainer.
  • Great prices!  The prices are very comparable to Target, and like I said earlier, often cheaper.  They also have lots of sales and promotions that are too good to be true in my mind.  But the deals are real!

Here are some items that B and I ordered last night and some that I've ordered in the past.  Below I explain why it made me happy to buy these from www.drugstore.com.

1.  Neutrogena Deep Clean Face Scrub - B loves this stuff, but it was $2 more at our local Target than it is here.  We couldn't stomach paying $8 at Target for it, but $6 for how much B loves it felt much better!

2.  Aveeno Stress Relief Body Wash - We loooove this stuff, especially the smell.  And it lathers so well.  Target stopped selling it, though, and only sells the newer version in the skinny bottle, which is NOT THE SAME.  Bed, Bath & Beyond carries this product, but it's a bit inconvenient to have to go to BBB just for some body wash when I'm constantly at Target.  With www.drugstore.com we can get it with the click of a button!  And it's cheaper here than at BBB.

3.  Aveeno Lotion - Again, cheaper here!  My current bottle has been running out, so I figured since we were placing an order with www.drugstore.com, why not throw it in the cart?

4.  Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Forever Stay Eye Pencil by Carmindy - This isn't sold at Target; only at CVS.  Again, I found it inconvenient to go to another store just for some makeup, but I like this pencil so much.  Also, it is often sold out at CVS.  With www.drugstore.com I don't have to worry about it--and also it's cheaper!  (Do I need to keep telling you it's cheaper at www.drugstore.com? haha)

5.  Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer - If you couldn't tell, I'm a drugstore makeup kind of person.  Nothing too fancy.  And I love this primer.  It goes on so smoothly without drying out my skin.  In fact, my skin feels nourished and soft after using this stuff!  It's often sold out at Target, which gets frustrating quickly.  Thank you www.drugstore.com for carrying it!  There was a deal on it of Buy One Get One 50% Off, so I bought two!

6 & 7.  Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Eye Shadow - Amethyst and Quartz.  I love these eye shadows, but again, they're only sold at CVS.  And in fact, I think CVS stopped carrying them because I hadn't been able to find them for about a year.  www.drugstore.com to the rescue again!

I also bought a couple other Aveeno products that I didn't show, but there were coupons for $2 off from www.drugstore.com.  And the beauty is that you don't have to search for the coupons--they're right there on the site.  You just click a button and the discount will be taken off for you, like so:

Anyway, this post ended up being longer than I thought, but there you have it!  If you haven't heard of this place yet, you've gotta check it out.  It is amazingly convenient, and if you couldn't tell from this post, I'm definitely a fan.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Going right now to see if they have any Revlon Lip Butters! I am addicted to those things!

  2. Thank you for this post.  I, too, am frustrated that the items I want are so often sold out at Target or my local Rite Aide/CVS.  And I've been missing those Sally Hansen/Carmindy items so much since my CVS stopped carrying them.  

  3. Oh this is great information! Thanks for sharing!


  4. Thanks for letting me know! :D


  5. Wow! That's awesome information...how great are those prices!  Thanks, girl! I love Aveeno products, but like you said, so expensive...

  6. what a great review/post audrey!  i would never think to buy personal care items or makeup at a website like this since i, too, am too loyal to target (and using coupons!).  but i actually might have to check this out and see what deals i can find.

  7. love everything! <3

  8. I have the Revlon Photoready foundation and it's awesome.  I haven't tried the primer, but I'm sure it's as good as the foundation.

  9. I use a special shampoo (my scalp is in a state and a half) and it wasn't available in stores for a really long time (the manufacturer changed plants and there was no output for a while) and it was nearly impossible to find. For two months I patrolled the internet, but Amazon had it from second hand sellers for $40 a bottle and CVS & Rite Aid's sites didn't even list it. I thought I was going to have to cough up $40 because my scalp was so rough but somehow I managed to trip over drugstore.com and they had it! At regular price, too! I was saved. Fortunately it's back in stores but I'll never forget how drugstore.com saved my scalp :)

  10. Ummm...definitely gotta check this out!  Thanks so much for the recommend...I hate paying money for makeup, so it's always good to find a discount supplier!

    I love drugstore.com too! It's the only place I can get my Noxzema face wash. You also get free 2 day shipping with a Shoprunner account.

    I am pretty much obsessed with Aveeno myself! Love their products.  Ill have to check out this Drugstore.com deal! Thanks! 

  13. I, too, am a total devotee of drugstore.com!  I live in a place where Target and BBB are kind of a trip, and I can't stomach Rite Aid and CVS prices unless it's an emergency.  But the prices are cheaper at drugstore.com and I get free shipping and cash back from eBates.  Gotta love the savings and convenience!

  14. Oooh thanks for the tip! I always love places cheaper than Target, because I always always always spend way more than I mean to when I go into that place.


  15. I recently "discovered" drugstore.com too!   I was tired of Walmart always running out (of a certain feminine hygeine product actually) so I went online.  Now I totally prefer to have them send me a couple packages at a time and not have to worry about when Walmart restocks.

  16. This.is.amazing! I clipped it to Evernote to check it out later. :D Thanks, Evernote twinsie. 

  17. What a data of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable experience regarding unpredicted emotions.
