Walgreen Night at the W 

Living in Los Angeles, I’ve attended my fair share of fab events. Gift bags, passed appetizers, glasses of bubbly; I’ll admit, it never gets old! Us LA folk are lucky that way. But what if I told you that there was a fab event coming to YOUR hometown? I can’t say you’ll get bubbly, but you will get beauty advice and that’s just as exciting.

It’s called Night at the W and it’s happening at a Walgreens near you on Wednesday, May 22 from 4 – 9pm. Yes, Walgreens! If you haven’t visited their beauty section lately, it’s the perfect time to do it. (Me? I’m there once a week.) You’ll have the chance to speak to Walgreens specially trained Beauty Advisors and they’ll help you find products that will seem like they were made specifically for you.

In addition to great deals on Neutrogena Skin Care and free samples, there’s also a huge sweepstakes happening that night with some amazing prizes. More on that in a minute…

Neutrogena Rapid Repair

I took my weekly trip to Walgreens to scope the Neutrogena aisle pre-event. I’ve been a long time fan of the line; their Transparent Facial Bar was my go-to for YEARS and used to be the only product I needed for my skin. But these days, it takes more than just soap to keep my skin looking good. So I asked their Beauty Advisor what Neutrogena products she suggested.

After asking me some questions about what I liked (products that worked fast and well) and didn’t like (sunscreen snob, here!) she took me straight to the Rapid Wrinkle Repair line, which is said to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles in just 1 week.

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer

Because of my said sunscreen snobbiness, I chose the Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer ($21.99), though she stressed the need for one during the day due to the high levels of Retinol in the product. The line also has a day moisturizer with SPF 30, serum and eye cream.

There’s a combo of ingredients in this that give a one, two, three punch to wrinkles: Retinol SA; proven superior to other forms of Vitamin A for its ability to penetrate the skin’s surface, Glucose Complex; a booster that accelerates skin’s activity and Hyaluronic Acid; which adds line plumping moisture.

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer

There are a lot of things I like about this. It delivers a lot of rich moisture (like a cream) but it absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave me looking slick (like a lotion.) I also love the substantial-feeling glass bottle. But best of all, I don’t even think it took a week for my skin to start looking better! My skin definitely looks more hydrated and feels noticeably smoother, two things that are like wrinkle kryptonite.

It does have a floral scent. But I have the most sensitive nose in the world and I don’t mind it at all.

Now about that sweepstakes. It’s called Expect the Unexpected and anyone who attends their local May 22 Event and purchases a participating Neutrogena product (like the Rapid Wrinkle Repair line) will be entered to win. Prizes include a trip for two to the Amara Hotel in Arizona (with a $1,000 allowance for spa treatments!), $50 Walgreens gift cards and Neutrogena gift baskets. Check out the complete details HERE.

So pop by Night at the W and check out the latest in beauty and you may just find yourself a winner. At worst, you’ll leave with some new beauty knowledge, and that’s never a bad thing!

  1. I love Walgreens… I always end up buying tons of beauty stuff there. This sounds like a cool event!

  2. Walgreens!! I stalk them on the regular and I never go without checking out Nouveau Cheap’s weekly drugstore sales post! I’ll definitely be at this event…heck, I’d probably be there even if I hadn’t read the post, 4-9pm is my usual time to shop there!

  3. I love a lunchtime trip to the Walgreens near my office. They always showcase their new beauty arrivals in a way that’s irresistible to me! I marked the 22nd on my calendar.

  4. I had no idea Walgreens did this, so cool! I will have to head down the street to check it out. I always have pretty good luck with Neutrogena products too.

  5. How fun! I admit, I rarely hit up my local Walgreens but perhaps it deserves a second chance. And I’m all about Neutrogena, so it’s a win win!

  6. I love Walgreens! I will totally stop by on the 22nd. Neutrogena has been a main-stay in my skincare world forever! I love it! Cannot wait to check it out!

  7. Those prizes sound fantastic! Guess I’ll be heading to Walgreens that night to test my luck & pick up some of that Neutrogena wrinkle cream!

  8. @stef, thanks for the head’s up! I love nearly all things Neutrogena. I used “Rapid Wrinkle Repair” and my skin had a new softness and clarity it didn’t before. My husband noticed and now he uses it daily. I’m putting this on my calendar as I type this–thank you!

    1. It’s really nice, isn’t it? Rivals some cream I have that are 5 times as much!

  9. Just sayin’–I am so into Walgreen’s. I don’t know what they do so differently from other drugstores, but it just works.
