Allergy Season Does Not Control Me! #ClearBeauty #CBias

Allergies I Challenge You!

 It is Allergy season and I am out side most of the day if I am not in front of the computer, I wake to a runny nose, itchy throat and horribly itchy and watery eyes. I already have dry eyes which is a major curse. I cannot even shop for long in the department store because my eyes start to burn thus I have to take out dry eye, eye drops to relieve the pain.

In the month of May shoppers can get a 30 count of Allegra for $17.99 with their CVS® card. Well I tell you what, I love my CVS® card, I save a bundle and love shopping for my beauty products there because there is not a huge crowd. Head over to Allegra and score yourself some Coupons you can sign up and receive them immediately.  Their website is really informative too!

Allergies are one symptom that I do not use an off brand product for my relief.  It is important for me to feel good inside and out. I can say with all honesty I am a fashion diva when my husband and I go out.  I love fashion, shoes and handbags! Okay so there is a really cool Allergy Makeover game you can play with Allegra. for your chance to win a $50 CVS® Gift Card. Play daily through May 31, 2012 for your chance to win.
The Allergy Makeover




I headed to CVS® to pick up some Allegra for my symptom's along with some beauty products that I have been lacking. Lacking you ask? Well my daughter who is 21 raids anything new I get, I borrow her car to run errands and she must rummage through my dressing area LOL.


I grabbed a cart and their weekly ad and was ready to see what  I could come up with.

Wow there is a lot of different allergy medicines.


This 5CT is only available through the pharmacy as are a lot of other brands, I started reading the packages and decided on which one I needed. I had to pick up some beauty products and let me just say they have the best beauty aisles EVER.

Are you a in the Extra Beauty Club?  Spend $50.00 and you get $5.00 in rewards bucks, this rocks!


Time to head home with my goods and get some chores down then get prettied up for an afternoon out with my hubby..  You can check out my whole shopping experience over at my Google+ Profile.


Being outside in the morning filling bird feeders and feeding the bunnies has me using my sleeve as a Kleenex!  I look like a nerd I know!  The ticks are bad, I try to roll up my sweats so they won't get me LOL.  Time to head in and take my Allegra and get ready..


A tall glass of Ice water and one pill does the trick

Looking at my eyes I want to cry
This is what I picked up from CVS®


Time to take care of my eyes with my Dry Eyes eye drops.

Dry Eyes+Allergies=Unhappy mother and wife
I then get my eyes into come hither mode with a little trick I learned from a modeling class I took after high school. Apply foundation to your lids, if your wearing eye shadow this will keep it looking fresh much longer.
Get the flat iron out, finish up with some bronzing lotion on my body and apply some makeup..
I am all dolled up and ready to go out for a few cocktails with my husband, I have a little time and am going to go sit outside where the pollen count is 9.5

Get your Pollen Count at the Allegra Website.  My Pollen is at 9.5 today, that could have most folks hiding out inside.
That is not going to stop me from enjoying a beautiful day!
