Natural Hair Challenge with CVS Beauty Club (Giveaway)

Sharing is caring!

Disclosure: this is a sponsored post on behalf of CVS Beauty Club. The $50 giveaway prize will be provided by CVS. Choices of products and video craziness are my own.

natural hair haul at CVS

I’ve been on a mission to stock up on natural hair products lately. My hair is growing, and my curls are starting to finally show what they are all about so it’s time to start giving more products a go. My only problem is the price of said products. They seem to be so expensive, no matter where I go to purchase them. I’ve kept my eye on CVS when it comes to hair care, and have seen their “natural and relaxed hair” section grow within the past few years. Since I have 3 CVS stores within my neighborhood, it seemed like a logical choice to stop in and see what they had on the shelves. Plus, all natural hair items are included in the totally awesome CVS Beauty Club.

CVS Beauty Club benefits

CVS/pharmacy has the newest beauty products conveniently and affordably located throughout their stores. As a Beauty Club member you save every time you shop with ExtraBucks Rewards. Every $50 spent on qualifying beauty products earns $5 in ExtraBucks Rewards. You can even sign up online. Once you do sign up, you receive a 10% off coupon to use in-store towards your next beauty haul. Don’t you just love receiving coupons just for signing up? Me too!

I focused on products that provided extreme moisture to my curly mane, and have been so pleasantly surprised with my picks. Take a look at which items caught my eye and why:

My favorite pick out of the whole haul wasn’t even in the video. It’s the Grow and Strengthen Serum by Nubian Heritage.

Natural hair haul at CVS

It has Indian hemp, tamanu, bamboo, monoi and garlic extract. I’ve only been using it for a few weeks and can see such a difference in the strength of my hair. My breakage has been decreased exponentially. By the way, the secret word in that video was “moisture.” Can you guess how many times I said it? I’ll give you a hint: LOTS.

Would you like to win a $50 CVS gift card and do your own beauty haul? Well, you’re in luck! CVS Beauty Club is giving one of my readers a chance to win. Follow the prompts in the rafflecopter below and start making your beauty wish list. Contest is open to US residents, 18 and older. Winner will be chosen on August 8th, 2013 and notified via email. Good Luck!

    • 7.29.13
      Amiyrah said:

      Neither did I, Antoinette! But, because we spend so much on hair care as natural girls, it just makes sense to use a program like this to get some money back. Great way to save.

      Amiyrah said:

      Nope, they are two different things. You sign you card up for beauty club rewards online, and with every beauty purchase, you get credit towards your 5.00 Extra Care Bucks. Once you reach 50.00, you get 5.00 back! I hope you sign up :).
