I was asked by Carusele to participate in the #WalgreensBeautyUnfilteredcampaign, sponsored by Walgreens. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own
I have been one busy mamma the last few weeks. We have been finalizing all our basement odds and ends as we have just finished our basement on top of packing my family to leave the country on a multi-trip destination vacation.
Packing 6 people on top of basement deadlines has taken all my mental and physical energy. I couldn’t be more excited to jump on a plane and to get the vacations started and to enjoy some much needed relaxation with the ones I love in the sun.
I hope you all will join us on our travels as this is the highlight of my blog. I live to travel with my family.
In preparing for our trip I have stocked up on beauty supplies at Walgreens. The store recently relaunched its Walgreens beauty brand– formerly Studio 35- with a consumer led approach. They have revamped their products from the inside out, focusing on ingredients and stronger claims. Walgreens beauty has a huge assortment of trusted, high quality essentials at an everyday value.
Since I’m heading on vacation, I picked up Walgreens beauty razors and I’m super impressed. Not only are they affordable, it’s been so long since my legs have felt this smooth. Beach where are you at? I’m beyond ready and excited if you can’t tell.
I also love the quality and price of the Walgreens beauty makeup sponge blenders.I believe in a clean sponge when applying my foundation. With prices like these it’s nice to know that I can switch them out often without breaking the bank.
Cleanliness in makeup tools and routine in washing your face is the secret to healthy looking and feeling skin. Like I learned when purchasing carpet. The most expensive doesn’t necessarily mean the most durable and stain resistant. You don’t need to get the most expensive facial products just get ones that feel good and your skin doesn’t negatively react to.
When it comes to skin care, I tried the Walgreens beauty Exfoliating Facial Cleanser, Facial Moisturizer, Facial Mist, and Body Lotion in cocoa & shea butter. The cleanser cleaned my face without stripping my skin while the moisturizer maximized my skin’s hydration and supple appearance thanks to its hyaluronic acid ingredient. Plus, the citrus smell is fresh and lovely! I’ve been slathering the body lotion after a bath/shower too and it works wonders on my skin because the formula is lightweight and soaks in quickly. For our trip, I’ll pack the Facial Mist to keep my makeup fresh in changing climates.
Take this advice, Walgreens beauty is just as high quality as the more premium brands (like Sephora and Ulta), but a fraction of the price. Over and over again Walgreens has taught me that quality isn’t always based on price tag.
