Prepare for a Beauty Upgrade with Walgreens

I’m all for upgrades. Like getting bumped up to first class from coach. . . or when the wait at Starbucks is unusually long, and the nice barista rewards my patience with a grande, instead of my frugalista-friendly tall. See, upgrades are nice. Well how about a beauty upgrade from the helpful folks at Walgreens?

Walgreens Beauty Advisor

Yes, your ears do not deceive you — Walgreens. If you’ve visited your local Walgreen’s lately [heyyy, Pat, my favorite cashier, at my local Walgreens on Ferry Street in Newark] you’ve likely noticed some major upgrades up and down the cosmetics aisle. I’ve been a Walgreens customer for years…so when Walgreens & Style Coalition approached me to share my thoughts, I was delighted. Not only are Walgreens beauty displays more vivid and illuminated to showcase the very best of drugstore beauty, the beauty areas now also have dedicated Beauty Advisors on hand. So if you’re wondering if you can pull off this season’s it color [Emerald] or have questions about the best skin care formulations for your skin type, there’s a trained Beauty Girl [or Beauty Boy] in-store to help with your beauty needs.

Walgreens Sample Box

And here’s where Walgreens really plays to my beauty loving heartSample Boxes. In Sample Boxes you will find Smart Tips from Walgreens Beauty Advisors, seasonal care secrets for skin & hair, beauty trend tidbits, money-saving coupons, and most of all – SAMPLES! And beauty boxes aren’t a random mish-mosh of throwaway product…no ma’am. The cutely curated boxes are theme specific and focus on specific areas of beauty.

Leave a comment that fills in the blank: My favorite Walgreens beauty buy is:___________ [and briefly explain why]

    I go to Walgreens all the time – there’s one right around the corner from my apartment, and I can find great stuff.

    My favorite Walgreens beauty buys are Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms, TriDerma Facial Redness Repair Moisturizer, CeraVe cleansers and sunscreen, and Maybelline Define-a-Brow brow pencils in light blonde.

  2. Maria J. Cardoza says:

    My favorite Walgreens beauty buy is the Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Shampoo & Conditioner because I bought when it was on a BOGO sale, but it makes my hair Very soft and I also feel that when I blow dry it, it is less frizzy and makes it lasts longer.

  3. Jamie C. says:

    My favorite Walgreens beauty buy is my Holy Grail Night time Moisturizer which is the Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream for Normal/Combo skin because it’s just as good and almost the same format as the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel without being pricey, but I like Garnier’s Cream much more because it’s light weight yet hydrating without feeling greasy on the skin and has Vitamin E which is good for protecting the skin from harmful effects of free radicals.

  4. Mercedes E says:

    My favorite walgreens beauty buy is lippies, loreal and maybelline. I can’t seem to leave there without bringing a few home.

  5. Adriana says:
