Well.ca sales and specials this week: SunBum lip balm for $0.25 (No joke!) and Only $1.50 for kids’ sunscreen

While I was trying (without much success!) this week to find some foaming soap refills for our soap dispensers, I came upon some great options at Well.ca! This was my first every order with Well.ca and I have to say I’ve been really happy so far. The price on the foaming soap refills were better than anywhere else (Amazon was WAY more expensive, which surprised me!) and the processing was very fast. I’ll post a link to the soap, if they still have any available.

But, while I was there on their site anyway, my bargain hunting tendencies got the best of me and I started to look for the best sales and deals they have going on right now. Here are all the best deals this week:

Watkins Foaming Soap Refills Canada

  • Like I said, this stuff was hard to find! Both the Lemon and Green Tea variety were still available the last time I checked. Each packet of 828 ml size allows you to fill their foaming soap pump about three times. I stocked up, because over this crazy COVID and flu season, I wanted to make sure to not run out of soap! The large packages of refill soap are $6.99 each – the best price I could find, period. If you guys find a better price, please let me know – whether it’s online or offline!

Boiron Products – 25% off at Well.ca until October 25, 2020

  • Boiron products are a wide range of homeopathic and natural treatments and therapies for cold and flu season. All of these products are on for 25% off until October 25. They have family bundles of cold and flu natural medicines – this one is on sale for $39.13 right now and includes Oscillococcinum and Boiron Stodal for Adults syrup. (That is their type of homeopathic cough and cold syrup; excellent if you want to try something more naturally derived than the cough syrup you generally can get at the drug store.)

CLEARANCE ITEMS at Well.ca this Week

Now for the ultimate money savers! These items are up to 60% off in Well.ca’s clearance section. We’ll start with the cheapest items first, because you know we like cheap around here. 😉

  • Only $0.25 for SunBum lip balm – I picked up four of the coconut lip balms, because hey – 4 for a buck is an eyepopping kind of deal! Oops, the coconut is sold out but there is still a banana variety that gets a very good rating and a pomegranate flavour too. Has an SPF of 30, which is handy to keep your lips protected in the sometimes harsh sun of winter. (Which has well and truly arrived here in Calgary. Ugh.)
  • Only $1.50 for Badger Natural Kids sunscreen – regularly $29.00 – Wowser! i need to post these bargains quickly so you guys actually get a chance to snag these before they’re all gone. SPF 40 by the way – and I’m pretty sure the sunscreen police won’t charge you IF you as an adult wear this kids’ sunscreen. (Wish I had seen this one before I placed my order! hahaha)
  • Only $4.00 for Little Ones toy cleaner – all natural toy cleaner to scrub clean those toys that kids get yucky. Which, of course, is all the toys they touch! The brand on this is Attitude Nature Plus.

I hope you guys can snag whatever items it is you need this week from Well.ca. I seriously want to post this in the hopes that you can get some of these incredible deals before they’re gone. And as a helpful reminder: Shipping is FREE on Well.ca when you spend $35 or more.

Happy shopping, everyone! And hope there’s less snow where you are.

Bargain Books – BookOutlet.ca Book Finds this Week

Hello fellow book lovers! I’ve just had a very fun time perusing BookOutlet.ca for some of the best new bargain books available. During this ongoing pandemic we have more time than ever to enjoy some quality reading time, and so I hope you’ll be able to take advantage of some of these book bargains. Enjoy! (And make sure to brew up a cup of tea or coffee to wrap one hand around, while the other is lovingly holding a new book! Pure bliss…)

So far I’ve personally ordered from BookOutlet twice, and even when the shipping times were slower due to the pandemic – I was super pleased with both orders. The first time it took around 3 weeks to arrive, but my latest order only took less than 2 weeks to get here. And considering that the shipping is free, I thought that was very reasonable.

And when that box of books arrives, well, it’s a pretty exciting time! My cat Milo is also excited, because he gets to play with the box and the heavy-duty packing paper the order arrives in. We all win!

This may not be a very glamorous post, but if like me you’re starting to re-stock your pantry from the beginning of the pandemic, then this might be an important post after all! Cans of Heinz baked beans are an excellent pantry standard – they’re a good source of protein and they taste delicious, too. Amazon has been low on most types of baked beans lately, but I managed to find this variety in stock: the Maple baked beans.

Whole Foods organic peppermint lip balm – finally back down to $1.99! Hooray!

Wow…after months of my favourite lip balm rising in price – up as high as $6.98 at times during the pandemic – it has come down to its natural price. $1.99!! We call that a stock up price around here, bargaineers. It’s been sitting in my Amazon cart for ages, just waiting for the price to go back down to normal.

There are two different varieties on for only $1.99 right now – my favourite organic peppermint, and also a vanilla honey. (I haven’t tried the vanilla. I’m pretty tempted to try it at that price though. Oh okay, you went and convinced me. I popped it into my Amazon cart, too. That didn’t take a lot of arm twisting now did it? 😉 )

These are my favourite lip balms because:

  • They’re organic
  • They’re a great bargain (or at least, they are again now! For a while there they were pretty pricey. Must’ve been a supply and demand thing during the pandemic.) Under $2 a piece for organic lip balm is a wonderful deal.
  • They work well! Natural peppermint lip balm leaves your lips feeling sort of tingly, but in the best possible way.
  • The list of ingredients is natural – things like organic coconut oil, organic beeswax, and natural (real!) peppermint essential oil.

Whole Foods Organic Peppermint Lip Balm: $1.99


Whole Foods Market Organic Peppermint Lip Balm, 0.15 oz

Whole Foods Vanilla Honey Lip balm: $1.99


Whole Foods Market Organic Vanilla Honey Lip Balm, 0.15 oz

I’ll definitely be buying a few of these. Will you?
