Stop being so sensitive! Enter our Crest Sensi-Stop giveaway for a prize pack AND a $75 Walgreens gift card

I am the first to admit I am very, very sensitive.  Not like I easily take offense…I’m actually rather laid back and it takes a lot of static to get a reaction out of me.  But my teeth…that is another story.  One bite into ice cream, or an ice cube, or even hot coffee hitting my teeth the wrong way and I start screaming.  P&G sent the BIZ a great selection of products that give my teeth relief, and even better – they are sponsoring a giveaway for the same products, plus a $75 gift card to Walgreens so you can shop for even more Crest products.

Win all this and a $75 Walgreens Gift Card too1

Win all this and a $75 Walgreens Gift Card too!

Crest is celebrating the launch of their new oral care line, Sensi-Stop, that is now available at Walgreens. In addition to the $75 gift card, this fabulous Crest Sensi-Stop Prize Pack includes:

  • Crest Sensi-Stop Strips™
  • Crest Sensi-Care Rinse
  • Crest Sensi-Repair Toothpaste (sample size)
  • Oral-B Sensi-Soft Toothbrush

Check out the videos explaining this new line HERE.  The Sensi-Stop Strips are pretty terrific at relieving sensitivity in my teeth.  In ten minutes, sensitive areas are directly treated and feel so much better…and I love immediate gratification.  Here is more info from Crest:

Crest® Sensi-Stop™ Strips

  • What it is: Crest® Sensi-Stop™ Strips are thin, flexible strips that contain an active ingredient used by dental professionals.
  • How it Works: Unlike toothpaste, Crest® Sensi-Stop™ Strips are applied directly to sensitive areas, providing targeted delivery of the key ingredient that allows for longer contact time on the surface of the tooth. Within minutes, strips build a lasting barrier that helps stop sensitivity pain by blocking tubules, relieving symptoms of dental sensitivity for up to 30 days (*With the use of similar oxalate products, some patients reported sensitivity relief for periods of up to one month, while others reported relief for shorter periods).

In addition to the strips, there are other Crest products that work on relieving that sensitivity throughout the day.

Crest Sensi-Soft Toothbrush

Crest Sensi-Soft Toothbrush

Crest Sensi-Repair & Prevent Toothpaste

Crest Sensi-Repair & Prevent Toothpaste

Using the right toothbrush and toothpaste makes a huge difference in tooth sensitivity.  The Sensi-Soft Toothbrush has polished-end bristles that are soft so they don’t irritate teeth and gums, yet they still gives an effective cleaning.  The Sensi-Repair & Prevent Toothpaste is a minty fresh gel/paste that works on sensitive areas to give immediate relief as well as preventing future issues.  It also has fluoride to prevent cavities and fights gingivitis.

Crest Sensi-Care AntiCavity Flouride Rinse

Crest Sensi-Care AntiCavity Fluoride Rinse

The Crest Sensi-Care AntiCavity Fluoride Rinse has a very mild minty flavor without that alcohol burn that hurts like other mouthwashes I’ve tried.  It strengthens tooth enamel, prevents cavities, cleans teeth and freshens breath.  If mouthwash has proven difficult for you in the past, give this one a try – I’ll bet the farm it will work for you.

There is a terrific promotion going on at Walgreens on Saturday, September 27th.  Your local Walgreens is having a ‘Saturdate’ so you can pick up a box of Crest Sensi-Stop Strips™ for $17.99! There will be additional coupons and deals throughout the event plus samples of Crest Sensi-Repair Toothpaste.  Stop by so you can get some relief from sensitive teeth!

Win all of this, plus a $75 Walgreens gift card too!

Saturdate with Walgreens information and giveaway

walgreen june 30 giveaway
Are you a Walgreens beauty shopper? If you aren’t you don’t know what you are missing. Walgreens is the only drugstore that has beauty advisors to help you find what you are looking for. I often go to them with products that I want to buy to see if they have any coupons or specials for those items. They’ll often show me what they do have coupons for, tempting me to buy some new products.

Not only does Walgreens have beauty advisors, they have special days that they have demonstrations, coupons and samples. Right now they have “SATURDATE WITH WALGREENS” which will help you find great beauty products at special prices.

The latest specials are from June 29th-July 5th with Olay and Pantene:

·         Buy one get one 50% off across all CoverGirl & Olay products

·         Pantene 2 for $7

Walgreens and Procter & Gamble have send us a box of products to give to one US winner. Let’s take a look inside:

Let’s not forget about hair which takes a beating in the summer. Pantene’s latest is a weekly Rehab Creme to instantly renew hair. I’m always putting my hair in a pony tail, taking it out, putting it back in. I need Rehab!

Win Red Carpet products from P&G and Walgreens #OnMyWay2Fab Giveaway

If you had a chance to watch the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday, January 8th then you saw the Walgreens commercials with Tim Green and Procter & Gamble products. I love watching for a few reasons – of course the clothes and makeup but also to see if anyone puts their foot in their mouth.

Here are some of my favorite looks:

Naya Rivera from Glee changed her hair color and it took me a minute to recognize that it was her. I love her look and I loved her dress too.

I like the show 2 Broke Girls, the two stars are so different but so cute together. I thought Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs were adorable and it was fun to have young and peppy stars hosting.

And the cutest part was when Shemar Moore was hitting on Malin Akerman – she was totally flustered. They’d make a great looking couple!

 There were several products that stood out when watching the Walgreen’s commercials. One I’ve used that is amazing is COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara:

o   Flaunt the next big thing in lashes with Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara! The brilliant two-step Bombshell Boost System combines extreme volume with an intensifying top coat for big, sexy bombshell lashes. Step One: Apply the extreme volume basecoat. Step Two: Finish with the intensifying top coat.

We use Crest Toothpaste here so it was interesting to find out about this new product from them:  Crest 3d White Vivid Radiant Mint Toothpaste

o   Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste uses a patented enamel-safe teeth whitening ingredient that polishes away stains to gently whiten teeth. In fact, it removes up to 80% of surface stains for whiter teeth in just 14 days. Its unique formula creates foaming action to clean, protect and whiten teeth with a cool blast of mint as part of your complete dental health regimen. The paste-gel hybrid formulation gives you the cleaning of a toothpaste and the freshness of a gel, getting your teeth smooth and clean.

I’m most excited to try the Studio 35 Nail Polish Remover Pads

o   Studio 35 Nail Polish Remover Pads are extra-thick felt for artificial nails. One pad cleans all ten nails.

Another product I didn’t know about but soon will is Pantene Damage Detox Cream

o   Pantene Damage Detox Cream is the first total hair system to reset damaged hair to look and feel like new. It instantly renews hair with lasting smoothness.

Walgreens and Procter & Gamble have offered a giveaway of the products below so you too can get a runway look. These are the same products that were featured on the People’s Choice Awards.

A Night at the W™ courtesy of Walgreens and Procter & Gamble (plus a giveaway)

First 3 Procter & Gamble products you can win

First 3 Procter & Gamble products you can win

Walgreens® and Procter & Gamble have created something fun for all of us and it’s totally free. Every single Walgreens® in the country, bar none, will have a “Night at the W™,” for us beauty lovers. “Night at the W™,” will be on Thursday, January 10th from 4-9 p.m so you can stop in when it’s most convenient for you. They call this the official party of the People’s Choice Awards. Now why would you want to do this? Because you can win prizes to make you red carpet ready even if the carpet you walk on isn’t red and isn’t going into a big event. We all want to start 2013 looking our best. We make New Year’s Resolutions about taking better care of ourselves, losing weight, exercising so why not looking better too.

Walgreens® and Procter & Gamble have worked with Tim Gunn to create some tips for all of us. After you read them you’ll have a chance to win some items to help recreate what Tim Gunn shares right here on Beauty Info Zone.

Tim Gunn’s tips:

* Get a Camera-Ready Smile: A bright white smile is absolutely necessary whether you’re walking the red carpet or the runway. A simple tip I tell all the runway models is use something like a Crest Whitestrips. There’s this 2 hour treatment you can put on when you are getting ready.

Crest 3D White Whitestrips

* Get Ready for Your Close-Up:  When it comes to facial hair removal, there’s nothing to be ashamed of, and there’s everything to gain. Olay has something new that is perfect for this and because it’s from Olay you know your skin will look fabulous!

* Every day is a new chance for you to “walk the runway,” so I like to encourage woman to try new things whether it be a new lipstick or nail color.

* Some of the most stunning looks I have seen lately are topped off with healthy-thick hair. Not every woman has thick hair and as women age their hair tends to thin. There is a new hair thickening product on the market from Pantene that will give you that gorgeous hair.pandg pantene

* To keep your skin glowing, it is important to stay hydrated by using a good moisturizer and drinking lots of water. And you can make your features pop with the right makeup and brightest smile.

Now for the giveaway – you can win a sample package of Crest® 2 HR Express Whitestrips; Olay® Facial Hair Removal (Medium to Coarse); Pantene® Expert Collection AgeDefy Thickening Treatment, CoverGirl® Clump Crusher (Very Black); CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balm; and CoverGirl Nail Gloss.

This whole prize is great and will be sent to one US based subscriber. I can’t help but have favorites though. I had recently bought CoverGirl® Clump Crusher mascara after some of my fellow bloggers raved about it in a recent Makeup Wars. It’s absolutely clump proof no matter how many coats of mascara you put on. CoverGirl® has new nail polishes out called Nail Gloss and these are beautiful and so shiny – no need for a top coat because the shine is built in. I received a sample box in order to tell you about the “Night at the W™” and my polish is #275 which is a dark, sultry Wine Stain. The CoverGirl® LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm I received is Toffee Twist, a great nude lip crayon that twists up so you don’t have to sharpen it. I don’t know what colors you’ll get in the Nail Gloss or Jumbo Gloss Balm but the two I received are terrific.
