Walgreens and Wellness

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I wish i was blessed with perfect vision.  No more squinting at signs, no more worry of driving at night-that glare!  However, the sweet relief of taking out your contacts, balling your hands into fists, and rubbing your eyes for the first time all day is a rather glorious feeling.  Contact wearers-am i right or am i right?  And as a soft contact wearer, i don't go anywhere without eye drops or rewetting drops.  You don't want those puppies getting all dried out and gross.  Because then you can't see.  And that is not good.

There are a few brands for certain objects that i'm loyal to, but rewetting drops does not fall into that category.  I like to keep a bottle in my work bag and one in my pocketbook, so i buy quite a few.   Knowing that the Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products have a 100% satisfaction guarantee as well as most containing the same active ingredients as other national brands and they are usually less expensive is a definite plus in my book.


Another plus is their community outreach, the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™.  I like a big company that gives back, makes me want to support them even more. 

Several bloggers are having giveaways for Walgreens gift cards, too, so there's another chance to try something new.  Do you have any tried and true brands that you'd never stray from, or do you sometimes try out the store brands?  I'd like to know if there's a store brand item that you think is even better than the name brand, since saving money is never a bad thing.

I buy as many store brands as I can. Contact solution and facial cleanser are two that I never use brand name. If I can save by buying a store brand, I do.

I buy lots of store brands. I use Walgreens and now I'll be even more aware of their giving back to the community. No contacts for me just glasses!

LASIK surgery in 1996 and therefore no longer have to wear contacts. Yeah!
