2015 Favorite Products from Walgreens + HUGE Giveaway!
With New year’s Eve right around the corner, I’m psyched to be partnering with P&G and Walgreens, and the People’s Choice Awards (PCAs) to share my favs from 2015. You guys should definitely keep Walgreens and beauty brands such as CoverGirl, Pantene, Crest and Secret when you’re prepping for the New Year, or really any day of the year.
2015 has been an epic epic year. I revamped my blog, changed the format of my youtube channel, and best yet I started my very own business. I honestly can’t believe we only have a few days left in this year, but I wanted to be sure to recap some of my favorite products from this year, AND wrap up the year with an amazing giveaway to thank you for your continued support.
So let’s begin shall we? Although I am notorious for rocking bold colors on my lips and funky shadows on my lids, my favorite looks of this year are from moments when I wasn’t on camera filming. In those moments I relied on enhancing my beauty using products I pick up right at my local Walgreens.
And here’s why I love Walgreens:
- They always have ample parking right up to the door, so I can easily get in and out in a flash.
- They always have the latest beauty products. If you stalk the makeup brands like I do, you know how important it is to be able to just run into the store and grab the latest and greatest.
- Walgreen’s supports efforts like Get a Shot Give a Shot and Vitamin Angels, so when you purchase P&G products at Walgreens you’re helping a company continue to provide vital resources to those in need around the globe.
- The stores are always really clean, neat, organized, and almost always fully stocked.
So let’s talk about my favorite #rockthered trends from 2015:
First up are my my Crest 3D white Strips. I actually just discovered these a few weeks ago and the results are far better than when I had my teeth professionally whitened 4 years ago. PLUS I didn’t have any of the tooth sensitivity, PLUS these are waaaaay cheaper. #winning
I usually wear my Crest 3D White Strips while I lather up in the shower using Olay Body Wash Ultra Moisture w/ Shea Butter. I basically create a sauna at home with stuff by closing the bathroom door and ramping up the hot water. Throw on some music and get to sudsing! This wash is so creamy and luxurious I can’t get enough.
While I’m in the shower I use my Olay Moisture Wash to create a thick lather to shave my legs and under my arms with the Gilette Venus Swirl Razor. Talk about a clean shave! Don’t judge me, but normally I use my husband’s razor but this little gem has taken over. Plus it’s so girly what’s not to love?!
My shower routine also includes a quick 3 minute Deep conditioning routine using the Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Treatment Mask. As you know, my full deep conditioning routine can be pretty involved, so having this one as a quick product that gives me tons of slip is a no-brainer.
As you also know my hair is super curly and super thick, so I’m pretty picky about the products I use to provide some extra hold to my curls, but the Pantene Curl Defining Mousse does the job quite nicely. Juts a little dab of this on the ends of my hair gives me the perfect amout of curl definition and hold.
Okay, so here’s another admission: I used to share my husband’s deodorant. I know, it’s gross, but really I always felt like the men’s deodorant did a better job. But one day my husband picked up the Secret Clinical Strength Smooth Solid Women’s Antiperspirant & Deodorant Stress Response and I haven’t looked back. Seriously this stuff is magic, and now my husband uses it for himself!
Now this post wouldn’t even be close to complete if I didn’t talk about some of my favorite beauty buys:
First up is the the CoverGirl TruNaked Eyeshadow Pallete.
These shadows are so pigmented I can’t even stand it. This is the only palette I take with me when I’m traveling and it is my go-to everyday look. Perfect for work, school, or even play as the darker colors make for the perfect smokey-eye. #rockthered. Check it out here:

Lastly, let’s talk about my fav mascara which is the CoverGirl Plumpify Mascara. Talk about volume, honey! I put this on before putting on my falsies, and pow! Lashes for days.
Once I’ve put all of my favorite products to use I have glowing skin, bouncy curls, and soft, yet glamorous makeup. Overall 2015 was a great year, filled with many blessing and many more to come. I’m looking forward to the 2016 beauty trends, aren’t you?
