With the quality of your favorite drugstore beauty products getting higher every day, it’s already tough to walk into a store like CVS and not walk out without some serious loot. And now the store is making things even more difficult — but in a good way. Throughout the month of July, CVS will be giving away a swag bag stuffed with free beauty products to online shoppers who spend $30 or more on qualifying beauty items. (Or just $25 if you happen to be a member of the CVS’s ExtraCare Beauty Club.) Yes, you read that right: Your reward for stocking up on your must-have makeup, skin-, and hair-care products is even more of those goodies for free. It’s like planting a beauty tree in your front yard and watching it bear fruit all freaking month.
And this haul is no joke, either. The retailer and pharmacy is offering a swath of 10 summery products, including hair conditioning spray, sheet masks, sunscreen, and even an eye-catching liquid highlighter, all tucked into a cute reusable clutch. And there are a couple of different ways to take advantage of this promotion, so listen up. If you can’t wait another second to get your hands on a bag, joining the CVS Beauty Club is the way to go; those members get early access to the swag bags starting June 30, and have to spend just $25 to qualify for the beauty-brimming pouch. (Plus, you’ll qualify for all kinds of other perks as part of the program.)
But even if you aren’t a member, don’t stress, because you’ll get your shot at the freebies beginning July 6, and you don’t have to spend much more to qualify: just $30, total. No matter your CVS Beauty Club status, once you’ve filled your cart and hit the minimum, all you have to do is enter a promo code at online checkout to choose your bag color — either FREEBAGPINK or FREEBAGBLUE — and you’re off to the races. When your order arrives, along with whatever you picked out for yourself, you’ll get every product listed below.
As far as skin care, it’s a good day for mask lovers because you’ll be receiving the Beauty 360 Watermelon & Vitamin E After Sun Mask, from CVS’ in-house beauty brand, as well as the Cucumber After Sun Sheet Mask from K-beauty line Oh K!, and The Crème Shop’s Dead Sea Mud Mask. You’ll also have your skin protection bases covered with a range of products from Sun Bum that includes the brand’s 3-1 Hair Conditioning Spray, their SPF 30 lip balm, a Sun Bum hair elastic, a travel-size sunscreen in SPF 30, and a Sun Bum sticker for good measure. And you won’t be neglected on the makeup front either because CVS will also include the Wet n Wild Hello Halo Liquid Highlighter, and a coupon for $3 off the Maybelline Dream Cover Foundation With SPF 50, which will be hitting stores later this month.
It’s a lot to try out, and at zero risk, because it comes as a gift with purchase for items you’d be stocking up on anyway, so you have nothing to lose. Head over to CVS.com and either join the Beauty Club so you can snag your free kit now, or wait until the promo opens up to everyone on July 6. But no matter which you do, this promotion ends on July 27, so don’t miss out.
