I love Philosophy products as much as the next beauty-product-obsessed gal, but the prices aren't always the best. I'm not made of money (although wouldn't it be cool if I was?) and I'm the worst when it comes to lotions and bath products. It's like beauty product ADD. I will love and adore a lotion for a matter of days, then suddenly be distracted by the shiny gleaming temptation of a full bottle with a clean lid and unfaded label, and suddenly I find myself with 4 mostly-full bottles of lotion and conditioner.
I tend to get suckered into drugstore brand lotions, conditioners and hair styling products, and other body products because of their typically low price points and lots of options. I oftentimes end up lamenting over the disappointment in those products (like Organix shampoo and conditioner) because many of them are priced low because they're just not the best quality. Well, as many American beauty bloggers will tell you - there are ways to get better quality products for less!
Behold, the power of TJ Maxx!
I've found everything from the CHI straightening flat iron (which I am still kicking myself for not purchasing) to Deborah Lippmann nail polish to theBalm makeup to Philosophy at my local TJ Maxx. Stores like this (including Ross and Marshall's) are very hit and miss - sometimes there are amazing, other times, it's all garbage. On my last trip to TJ Maxx (to get a new pillow for my bed), I managed to score a couple of goodies for great prices.
I'm a sucker for anything peach scented or flavored. Seriously... I love anything peach related (but I only like peaches, try to figure that one out). I also love Philosophy products. So when my eyes spied this Peaches with Cream lotion, I instantly snatched it up. I like this lotion because it smells wonderful, is lightweight and not greasy, and the pump is really good quality. Normally, this lotion is 26-28 dollars, but I got it for $14.99.
So, sometimes great deals come along that allow you to get high quality products for a reasonable price, and that's why I love TJ Maxx and Marshall's. What deals have you found lately?
