As a major beauty junkie, I spend most of my day blogging about new beauty products, sampling and trying them out or throwing away products taking up room on my shelf. Through my beauty trials, I’ve come to the realization that you don’t have to break the bank to get a good skin care regimen going. I went to my local Walgreens to inquire about summer skin savers with one of their Beauty Advisors, who recommended several Neutrogena products suited to my skin needs.
For starters, I told her I sometimes forget to take off my makeup. She suggested I buy the NEUTROGENA® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, which are super easy to use, especially on nights when I’ve had one too many. One towelette removes my makeup, leaving my skin fresh and smooth and saving my pillow from the stains it would otherwise incur after I slept on it with full makeup on.
Summers in New York City are brutal, especially on the hot and humid days when jumping into the subway is like diving nose first into a volcano. To prevent my makeup from sliding, my Beauty Advisor suggested the Neutrogena Shine Control Primer, which glides on smooth and keeps makeup on my face all day long.
To prevent makeup from clogging my pores during the hot weather months, I also picked up the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup with SPF 20, which protects my skin from the harmful effects of UVA/UVB rays. It provides a nice coverage that is light and long staying.
To keep my lips smooth and supple, I also got the Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm with SPF 20, which improves lip texture and revitalizes it in just one week. In six shades, I also get the added benefit of a splash of color on the lips. Who doesn’t love a good two in one product?I rounded up my purchase with NEUTROGENA Nourishing Eyeliner in a brown color, which is a bit softer and better for daytime wear.
To get you even more excited, Walgreen is hosting a fabulous fete nationwide on May 22, and invites all you fabulous Glamazons to come and participate in Walgreens Night at the W – Expect the Unexpected. I will be at my local Walgreens Beauty Boutique tweeting and having a ball, hope you can join. It’s going to be a fun night with prizes, giveaways and free samples of Neutrogena products. There’s even more. One lucky gal or guy will win a grand prize spa retreat to Arizona, as well as Neutrogena gift baskets and more. More details here.
