Bargain Trip: Big Lots Haul Pt2 (Health and Beauty)

This is part 2 of my most recent Big Lots haul.  This is all the beauty items that I found.

Why did I not know that Big Lots had such great beauty items?  Since when has this been reality?

This is a culmination of what I found at 3 different Big Lots.

Facial Essence Mask Cucumber 4pk - $2
Facial Essence Mask Collagen with Vitamin E 4pk - $2
Facial Essence Mask Vitamin C 4pk - $2
Facial Essence Mask Green Tea and Aloe 4pk - $2

I was so excited to find these paper masks.  I looked on the back and saw that they were made in Korea and became even more excited.  I've tried a few Korean facial products so far and haven't been disappointed yet.  So, for $.50 a mask, they were definitely going in my buggy.

So far, I've tried one of the cucumber masks.  It was very relaxing, calming, and cleansing.  I'll probably do a review post once I've tried them all.  It will probably be quite a bit down the road, because this is a crap load of masks and I only do them once or twice a week.  I am really curious to see how they compare to the dollar tree ones as well.

The only con that I have noticed is that some do contain Methylparaben (the cucumber and green tea).  So, if you only use products that are paraben free, you may want to avoid those 2 varieties. 

I found some more nail strips and stickers to try and add to my gift trunk.  (Yes, I Christmas shop all year round.)

From left to right:
  • Maybelline Color Show Nail Stickers in Sapphire Jewels 60 - $1
  • Maybelline Color Show Nail Stickers in Metal Prisms 40 - $1
  • Maybelline Color Show Nail Stickers in Divine Crocodile 70 - $1
  • Maybelline Color Show Nail Sticker in Fierce in Fuchsia 10 - $1
  • Sally Hansen Salon Effects Pedicure Nail Strips in Snake, Rattle, & Roll 301 - $1
I cannot wait to try the pedicure strips to see how long the wear time is.  I had never seen them before.  Also, the Maybelline stickers' patterns were too cool to pass up.  I wonder if they are just short wear stickers or actually polish strips.  We shall see...

Who knew some Big Lots had such great polishes?

From Left to Right:

  • Maybelline Color Show Shredded in Silver Stunner 50 - $1.00
  • Maybelline Color Show Metallics in Navy Narcissist 100 - $1.00
  • Maybelline Color Show in Blue Freeze 350 - $1.00
  • Maybelline Color Show Metallics in Amethyst Ablaze 90 - $1.00
  • Sephora by OPI in I'm Wired - $1.80
  • Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in Razzleberry 500 - $1.00
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Supernova 235 - $1.00
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Violet Voltage 445 - $1.00
  • Revlon ColorStay in Amethyst 240 - $1.50
  • Rimmel 60 Seconds in Instyle Coral 415 - $.50**
  • Rimmel 60 Seconds in Too Cool to Tango 842 - $.50**
  • Loreal Paris in The Bigger The Better 603 - $1.00

** - These didn't have a price tag.  So, the manager just let me have them for $.50 each.

And, I have to say the Rimmel 60 Seconds polishes that I got are flippin' amazing!  I tried them both today in my manicure and the formula is smooth, opaque in one coat with no white base needed, and dry to the touch in a minute.  If I find these for the right price again, they are going straight into my buggy.  It is one of those rare polishes that is actually a pleasure to put on.  They also have the awesome wide salon style brush.

My quick mani today with the new polish:

I just need to say again.  The solid nails are just one coat over a clear base coat, and I have crazy bright white nail tips too.  Love, love, love!

L'Oreal Sublime Sun Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Water Resistant (3oz) - $5.00
I got this stuff as a sample inside one of my other L'Oreal things, and I gave it to my dad to wear when he gardens.  And...he loves it so when I saw the full size I had to pick him up one.  Not the best price, but it's probably the best you can get without using ExtraCare Bucks at CVS or something.

Great Groomers Manicure Combo Pack - $1.50
I couldn't pass this up.  I have been needing a couple of these tools for awhile.  I hadn't bought any earlier, because they are usually $1-$2 a piece. So, score!

Dual Tip Applicators 12ct - $.50
I use these when I do certain nail art designs.  At this price, I picked up quite a few.
