Shopping at Sam's Club for Health and Beauty Values to Share

I like shopping at Sam's Club when I need everyday items. My husband and I are people who like to have items we use daily stocked up in our home. We do not like to have to make unplanned trips to a grocery store and over pay when we know we can get a better deal for it at Sam's Club.

We went shopping at our local Sam's Club for healthy and beauty items. I buy many items at Sam's Club for the deals. I shop price per unit, like ounces or pounds to see which item is the best deal. I like that the Sam's Club labels mark it in the tag for you to see. This helps me to be able to buy name brand items I need.

My son eating some samples as we wait in the check out lane. The samples help keep him staying in the cart. That makes it easier for me to shop.

Today I need facial wipes for makeup removal and Band-Aids. My morning routine includes sunscreen, makeup for my face, eyes and lips. By the end of the day I need a good make up remover wipe to get my face clean. Especially my mascara, its water proof so it can be hard to get it all off.  I compared two brands in the store based on the value of the item and the benefits of both facial cleansing wipes. I selected the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. I have Neutrogena makeup products so I know its a brand I can trust. The pack comes with 100 wipes!! That is a whole lot of wipes to have on hand. I can put some in my purse in a baggie for makeup emergencies, plenty in the bathroom and enough to even share with my Mother in law.

 I also picked up Band-Aids for our medicine cabinet. While I was out of town last month my son cut his hand while playing in the back yard at my Mother in law's birthday party. They could not find the Band-Aids and were so stressed and worried about my son. Thankfully they ran to the store but of course over paid for the items. Now I have a BIG box of Band-Aids for any bandage needs we might have. Band-Aid brand has introduced a new QuiltVent technology that wicks away the blood from a wound helping it to heal faster. We will keep our eye out for those ones!

My Mother in law and I share the products we get at Sam's Club all the time. Toilet paper, paper towels, food items, shampoos, bar soaps and more. For her its her way of chipping in to feel like she can help us out, love that she does that for us. For me when I share with her I feel like I am saving her a trip to the store. She has Lupus so she does have days she does not want to leave home. Buying in bulk and sharing with her makes it so she does not have to shop as much. Plus we both love to share new items we find with each other. 

I tried the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes on a night after it was 108 degrees that day. My makeup was feeling heavy and my face was a sweaty mess. Yuck! Using the facial cleansing wipes was a relief to my skin. One wipe fully cleaned my face and removed all my eye makeup. I was so jazzed about how well they work and the value of the price I decide to make a little gift bag for my Mother in law. 

I have some really cute gift bags that I want to put some of the items in for her. Purple ribbon too since purple is her favorite color! I think this will really cheer her up to get a little helpful surprise when she comes over. We have a movie to watch and some delicious melon to share. 

Shopping at Sam's Club saves my family money, time and gas. Plus I get to share with my family, how great is that!! #HealthyValue 

I love the size of the Neutrogena Facial Wipes. They fit perfectly in my makeup case with my other items.

You can connect with Neutrogena and Johnson and Johnson on Facebook and Twitter for more info.
