Free Beauty Events

If you follow me on FB or Twitter then you already know how much I love freebies! Samples, sweepstakes, giveaways…I love them all and I love sharing them! So that is why for several months I’ve been sharing the Free Beauty Events with y’all. If you have been a Savvy follower for a while, then you are all too familiar with Free Beauty Events. If not then check out the most recent post here.

Free Beauty Events is a great site that  features FREE beauty events, like free makeovers, gifts with purchase, spa open houses and sampling events held at various local beauty retailers, spas and salons across the US. You can find out what events are happening in your area by simply entering your zip code here…a list of the current FREE beauty events will appear. It’s so easy and worth it if you’re a beauty junkie like myself. Below is an example of what you may find…

  • December 15th at all Walgreens, you can try the latest Sally Hansen products for their SaturDate with Beauty! From 10:00a.m. – 5:00p.m., Beauty Advisors will be showing customers how to apply Sally Hansen’s new InstaGel Strips, as well as giving away $2 coupons.
  • On December 22nd, also at Walgreens, there will be a SaturDate with Beauty for Coty fragrances. Beauty Advisors will be giving away samples of David Beckham Homme, Shakira Elixir, Shakira Florale, Playboy VIP, and $1 coupons for any Beyonce or David Beckham fragrance. And, there is a free gift with purchase, a free Shakira purse with any Shakira purchase. This is a great time for customers to get help picking out a fragrance for the holidays.
