3-Year Blog Giveaway

3-Year Blog Giveaway

Three years ago, today, I started BeautyinBudgetBlog.  I can’t believe that it has been three years!  August 12, 2011 (so long ago!) I started this blog on a whim because I thought it would be fun (which it has been) and as an excuse to indulge my ever-increasing makeup obsession.  Despite pretty terrible pictures and not really knowing what I was doing, I found that I really enjoy blogging about beauty and how to work it into a budget.  I love hearing that I help people save money by trying cheaper alternatives to products that they’ve been spending a fortune on.   I am so thankful that you all enjoy my posts and take my opinion seriously.  It still amazes me that anyone is actually paying attention to what I have to say.  I’m thrilled when I hear that someone has found products that they really like as a result of something they read here on my blog.  I really appreciate all of the comments and support that you give me.  In the last three years, I have managed to grow my blog into something that I can be really proud of.  I have almost 600 posts, and well over 400,000 views.  I want to thank those of you who have supported me and watched me grow, and that is what this giveaway is all about.  I want to give back to you because I wouldn’t be doing this blog if it wasn’t for my readers.  So, as a thank you for sticking with me over the last three years, here are three different prize packages that you can win.  I’ve been collecting products for a while in anticipation for this giveaway.

Derma MD Eliminate Eye Cream Giveaway and Sale Event

Standard
Derma MD Eliminate Eye Cream

Derma MD Eliminate Eye Cream

I am assuming that you aren’t quite sick of these skincare giveaway yet.  Am I right?  Well, I have another great giveaway from Derma MD today.  Right now, their Eliminate Eye Cream is being offered on Groupon for a great price. Eliminate is normally $58.95, but it is now being offered on Groupon for only $18.99.  The sale event will last until Sept. 6th, or until they sell out.  There are only 500 units available, so don’t wait too long.  You can click on this link to view the Eliminate sales event on Groupon.

Eliminate Eye Cream eliminates puffiness and dark circles.  Special lightening agents combined with peptides will address all areas of the eye to keep them looking younger and have a more vibrant and brighter appearance.  Kojic acid and Licorice Root fade dark circles by lightening dark pigmented areas and revive tired eyes.

Benefits:

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hydrate and improve contour
  • Firm, tighten eye area
  • Lighten Brighten dark pigment areas under eye
