What Scent Belongs to Your Favorite Memory?

*Post sponsored by Lunchbox but all opinions are my own.

Take a second to think about your favorite memory. Did the one that you thought of first involve scent? The one that just popped into my head was actually from this past weekend at The Makeup Show. A friend and I were walking around and smelled the most amazing fragrance. We were drawn to that particular booth because of the scent. I bought a brush from the booth I never would have noticed otherwise because of the scent.

Scents can draw you in, transport you, make you happy, comfort you… it really all depends on what memory is tied to that particular scent. This month, Walgreens wants you to “be your own beautiful” and think about what scents are tied to your favorite memories. Indulge yourself by exploring for and experiencing some of the skincare brands and products available at their store where a ton of the products have extra special offers just waiting for you to take advantage of them!

A few of my favorites are below:

The Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Lotion. I buy a big bottle of this one because my husband and son love it too. My husband in particular can really go through a lotion because his hands get very dry and this one is clinically proven to moisturize deeply to soothe dry skin with the first application and keep the skin healed for up to three weeks (proven after 4 weeks daily use in a clinical study). I love this one not only for the moisturizing benefits but because it absorbs quickly and isn’t greasy feeling. The scent is fresh and makes me think of Summer because I’m constantly applying aloe then!

It’s not easy to find a fruity scrub that’s not only oil-free but also free of parabens, sulfates and is also Hypoallergenic, Dermatologist tested and contains 100% Natural Exfoliants. St. Ives Apricot Scrub is all of those things and the scent totally makes me think of when I was younger and hanging out at my Aunt’s house. She always had a scent like this around!

Walgreens Special Offer. Week of 5/8 – Buy One Get One 50% Off. 5/15 See additional savings in most Sunday papers. Shop here.

I’ve spoken before about how much I love the scent of Caress® Mystique Forever™ Body Wash. It contains Fragrance Touch Technology so that you can catch a whiff of the scent for up to 12-hours. Perfect for reminiscing all day long!!

Walgreens Special Offer. 5/15 Offer – $2.99 on select 12oz body washes. 5/15 See additional savings in most Sunday papers. Shop here.

Since the 90’s I’ve had a major thing for the scent of cucumber so the Suave Cucumber Agave Smash is a top pick Summer body wash for me when I’m feeling beachy, going pool-side or wanting to remember all of the awesome vacations I’ve had throughout the years. The scent is lively and crisp with a formula infused with cucumber fruit extract and skin conditioning Vitamin E.

Walgreens Special Offer. Month long body wash deal – Get 50% more free with bonus packs! (18 oz at the 12 oz price, at select Walgreens stores). 5/15 See additional savings in most Sunday papers. Shop here.

SAVE on NEW Dove Regenerative Nourishment Hair Care at Walgreens

*Post sponsored by Lunchbox. Opinions are 100% my own.

This year, I refuse to let the harsh winter weather damage my hair. With Dove’s brand new Regenerative Nourishment line of hair care products, available at Walgreens, I’m prepared to help keep my hair looking and feeling 100% regenerated – aka healthy!

The Regenerative line is made for restoring smoothness, strength and purity to damaged hair so that it will look and feel healthy. Unlike many products out there, this line was specially formulated to take hair beyond repair by replenishing important nutrients and reinforcing strands inside and out. Gotta love having perfectly nourished hair that’s 100% visibly damage free. Take that cold weather!

Regenerative Shampoo. This product eliminates the signs of damage to make your hair look healthy and replenishes nutrients to reinforce hair from inside out, making hair stronger and more resistant to breakage.

Regenerative Conditioner. This product instantly nourishes your hair to make it look smooth, like the damage never even happened. Simply apply to the mid-lengths and ends of freshly washed hair & make sure you rinse it all out. You can use this every day.

Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-oil. This formula is a two-in-one powerhouse of nourishing oil with serum restorative qualities. The oil penetrates deep into hair and nourishes while working with the serum part, to thin its texture and improve the spreading on the hair surface to provide smoothness, shine and manageability. This product instantly restores the healthy appearance of extremely damaged hair, making it shiny and soft. In addition it will strengthen and prevents split ends. After washing your hair apply three to four pumps of Serum-in-Oil between your hands and apply to damp hair. Style as usual.

How can you own these products and save money? Stop by your nearest Walgreens this month to get the savings on this exciting new line, as well as other Dove products you know and love (like the Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo, which is also nourishing).

Save on POND’S This Season at Walgreens

*Post sponsored by Lunchbox. Opinions are 100% my own.

Have you heard of the POND’S® promise? The POND’S® promise is “Nurtures deep inside for beautiful, soft skin outside”. I’m a fan of several products from POND’S® because they feel fabulous on my skin and my skin looks wonderful after I’ve used them – particularly in terms of makeup removal.

Of all of the POND’S® products I’ve tried one of my favorites (and one I’ve talked about several times on this blog) are the Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes. They’re fantastic for removing makeup and are now even infused with iconic cold cream technology which not only removes make-up but also provides moisture. The feel of the Towelettes is very soft and plush, but with a strong material. Each is infused with Triple Anti-Oxidant Complex and Vitamin E for soft, radiant skin.

Now at Walgreens get 1,000 Points when you buy any TWO (2) participating POND’S® products. Be sure to check your local paper for additional savings on POND’S®.

Summer Beauty – Sultry Eyes that POP Tutorial #WalgreensBeauty

***This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and it’s advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #WalgreensBeauty #CollectiveBias

Just because August is winding down and Labor Day is right around the corner doesn’t mean that summer beauty has to stop. Wearing a Sultry Summer Look and shying away from bold, neon additions has not closed down for the year (even though the pools here on the East Coast are about to)! For this post I’m going to show you how to get a really easy, sultry summer eye look with a hit of blue using the most travel friendly tools (or one tool with several attachments) on Earth.

First let’s talk about the products I’ll be using for this look, so you don’t get lost as you read through the steps. To purchase these products I went to my local Walgreens and walked around picking up items I wanted to try in shades that stood out. Makeup wise I picked up the L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow in Treasured Bronze and the L’Oreal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner in Bleu Cobalt. For a mascara I had to try out the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Rockin’ Curves. Look at that brush!!!

As I was there wandering I noticed the Studio 35 Beauty makeup brushes and saw an adorable little set with interchangeable brush heads. This is a beauty mavens answer to the tool-mans perfect screwdriver. They are easy to switch and the heads are magnetic so they’re not flopping around and falling off as you use them. They’re small enough to keep in your makeup bag and I need to buy at least three more sets (it was less than $4 for the entire set!).

Below are swatches of the L’Oreal products that I used for this look. They are swatched dry on bare skin. I did use a primer for the eye look.

For the eye look below prep your eyes with the eye shadow primer of your choice and follow the steps.

To get the look above, follow the steps below!

  1. Take the shading brush and apply the copper color of the L’Oreal palette to the inner third of the eye.
  2. Take the concealer brush and apply the bronze shade of the L’Oreal palette to the rest of the eye lid.
  3. Using the pointed lining brush apply the chocolate metallic shade of the L’Oreal palette to the outer V and the crease.
  4. With the flat lining brush take a bit of the shimmering ivory shade of the L’Oreal palette and put it at the inner corners of the eye as well as under the brow to highlight.
  5. Grab a fluffy brush of your choice and lightly blend out your look.
  6. Pick a bold eyeliner that is waterline friendly. For this look I used the L’Oreal Silkissime Eyeliner in Bleu Cobalt.
  7. Under the outer third of the lower lash liner use the flat lining brush again to add a bit of the copper shade from the L’Oreal palette.
  8. Since there is no top eye liner in this look pick a mascara that is volumizing. I used two coats of Rimmel ScandalEyes Rockin’ Curves.
  9. Check your work. Oh, hai eye ball!
  10. When you’re all finished fill in your brows with the product of your choice and brush them up with the spoolie brush.

How do you amp up a neutral eye look?

Now through 8/31/2014 go here to get a coupon for a free Studio 35 Beauty Travel Brush Set with any $20 beauty and personal care purchase (excluding baby items)!

Find Your Summer Look at Walgreens + a Giveaway!

From messy braids to beach-babe waves, Walgreens makes it easy to get the hottest looks under the sun. Head in to your local Walgreens and discover new styling products and the hottest recommended dos from your favorite hair care brands like Dove, Suave, TRESemme, Nexxus and Toni&Guy.


Dove Mermaid Waves
This year’s waves are voluminous! Get them with Dove Oxygen Moisture Leave In Foam, which moisturizes while turning up the volume.

The Low Ponytail from TRESemme
The classic pony looks fresh held low on your neck. Styled messy or sleek, use TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth Heat Activated Treatment for frizz-free, easy-to-style hair that lasts for 7 days (or through 3 washes). And smoothly go from day to night

Suave’s Braided Updo
Summer’s casual-chic styling may occasionally dry and damage hair. But Suave Professionals® Light Oil Spray with Macadamia Oil revives hair cuticles, delivering the silky shine this look needs.

Vibrant Color from Nexxus
For luminous definition and color retention, apply 3–5 pumps of Nexxus® Color Assure™ Pre-Wash Primer to dry hair before washing. The Primer helps shield hair by repelling water and locking in color.

Toni&Guy Loose Braids
Up, down or to the side– this classic style looks modern and beachy when worn loose. TONI & GUY Sea Salt Spray delivers the texture, body and light hold needed to keep the look “perfectly messy” (but not a mess).
