Walgreens (Review/Giveaway)

The other week while I was tending to Justin after his surgery, Walgreens was having a “Night at the W” which was a free beauty-themed event. It was on Janurary 10th and everyone was invited to go to their local Walgreens to talk to their Beauty Advisor on how to get a glamourous new look for the new year and would also have a chance to win great prizes.

I have a few tips from Tim Gunn, the “Godfather of Style” and fashion consultant, these are all things you can purchase at your local Walgreens!

  • Crest Whitestrips to get a “camera-ready smile”. It’s a 2 hour treatment that you can put on while you are getting ready.
  • Olay Facial Hair Remover, you know you wax it, or pluck it but Olay has come out with a great product to remove it and leave your skin nice.
  • Lipstick and Nail Polish.
  • Pantene Expert Collection AgeDefy Thickening Treatment. Not every woman has thick hair and as women age their hair tends to thin, Pantene will give you that gorgeous thick hair!
  • Water. Stay hydrated to keep your skin moisturized (as well as using a good moisturizer) and you can make your features pop with the right makeup.
