Giveaway: $25 Gift Card to Save-A-Lot, plus check out Suave products now at Save-A-Lot

When I was in college I bought Suave Shampoo and Conditioner from the little drug store in my college town, faithfully. I liked the brand then, and still use Suave. The product line offers many more hair and body care products now then in my college days. The price is right and the quality is great.  Save-A-Lot food stores are now carrying Suave Bath and Hair care products in the Health and Beauty section of the store.  How cute box is this box!  I received samples of Suave products from Save-A-Lot. I also visited my local store to find out what other Suave products are available. Suave Anti-Dandruff 2 in 1 shampoo - the Mr. and I think this is an easy one step hair cleaning. Smells great, and lathers up nice. Suave Green Apple Shampoo and conditioner - the kids like the scent and are able to keep their hair smooth and soft with the shampoo and conditioner. Suave Mac Hold Aerosol Spray - I've been using this, I have curly hair and in these Spring rainy days it can get a bit messy.
