[Vegan MOFO Day 9] Good Enough To Eat: Satrbucks Freebies

Next time you are at Starbucks picking up your coffee with a splash of soy milk - hit up the bar area for free beauty booty.

Sugar in the raw packets: there is enough sugar in one lil packet to get your lips or elbows smooth. Take it home, add a bit of olive oil or coconut oil in a bowl with the sugar and massage onto you lips or a dry spot (avoid your face - the sugar is to course for the face area). Brush off of your lips or wash it off your dry spot. Sugary and soft!

Napkins: Recently I read that the napkins from Starbucks make great face blotters...I have oily skin and a few hours after putting on my makeup and running errands I can be pretty shiny. So I tried using the napkin to remove oil...It worked! It worked just as well as my pricey lil blotting sheets!

Now if only the chain would reverse their new gold card ruling and give us gold card users free soy milk again...


  1. Great tips! Another excellent cheap/free oil blotter sheet are those thin paper toilet seat covers. Also, in a pinch, cheap-o coffee filters themselves are awesome.

  2. Great tips! I really like eating Sugar in the Raw by itself. So yum! :) So if I rubbed it onto my lips, I'd probably end up licking it all off immediately. lol

  3. ouch eating sugar plain would kill my teeth! i like rock candy in small amounts though!

    the toilet seat thing is something i have tried in the past as well!

  4. Good tips! Ijust ran out of Elf's blotter sheets, they were pretty good for a buck.

  5. I don't often go to Starbucks but I will try using turbinado sugar & olive oil as a gentle exfoliant. Thanks for the tip!
