I was so excited and honored when Walgreens invited me to be one of the first to experience the all-new Boots Beauty at Walgreens that launched in 13 locations in Houston! Boots Beauty is a renowned UK beauty company that delivers award-winning brands like No. 7, the UK’s best selling skin care brand, as well as – Soap & Glory and Botanics. I was already familiar with No. 7, so I was excited to get my hands on the product you always hear buzzing around beauty junkies, but I was also excited to try some newer brands, as well.

I spent a morning experiencing the store, sampling products and even got to chat with the on site Boots Beauty expert. She was able to share fun details about the different brands, tell me her personal favorite products and even color matched my skin with the fancy No. 7 color-matching tool! I walked away with so many products I couldn’t wait to get home and try! It was amazing to get hands on with the products before bringing them home so I was confident with my decisions and knew I wouldn’t have any disappointments when I got home.

You can tour the store with me in the fun video above to learn more about the in-store experience and product offerings!

But, before you go running out the door to go check out Boots Beauty at Walgreens for yourself, I have one more fun video for you…

This one is my first ever beauty haul where I am sharing my favorite products I picked up from my in-store experience and why I fell in love with them. Be sure to watch before you leave so you know what you definitely don’t want to miss when you go shopping for yourself!

Caroline’s ‘Don’t come home without it’ List:

I am sharing my list of products everyone needs to get them through the day. Consider this my essentials list that covers all the basics when you have less than 30 minutes to get ready. Or, if you are packing to go somewhere over the weekend, these products would definitely make your overnight bag!

1. No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum – You have all heard me preach about taking care of our skin. This product line is the #1 best selling line in the UK. They literally sell one bottle every 10 seconds. If that doesn’t convince you, I don’t know what will…
2. No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Day Cream (SPF15) – This is a rich day time moisturizer that helps improve the appearance of deep lines, wrinkles and firms the skin. It is the perfect consistency under makeup and, most importantly, it also protects against future signs of aging with SPF 15 broad-spectrum protection.
3. No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Night Cream – This product is your evening version to the day cream. It’s a rich moisturizing night cream that literally works while you are sleeping (and when the skin is at rest) to help restore the skin and replace lost moisture overnight. It visibly reduces the appearance of deeper lines, wrinkles and firms the skin. You will immediately wake up with your skin feeling softer and smoother and notice and difference in your fine lines in 4 weeks.
4. Face Soap & Clarity 3-in-1 Daily Detox Vitamin C Facial Wash – smooths and purifies for a super clean feel and brighter skin. With complexion-friendly, non-drying, easy-rinse ingredients including natural SUPERFRUIT™ YUZU and ULTRA-SOFT SCRUB-BEADS, this high-tech foaming facial wash is a multitasking miracle!
5. Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask – No matter what we do to fight it, the fact is we get build up in our pores. A weekly treatment mask is essential to good skin care. This particular one is Botanics top-selling and most popular product! And it is easy to see why, it actively removes impurities and deeply cleanses the pores. The oceanic minerals help draw out deep-rooted impurities and oil without overdrying your skin.
6. Righteous Butter Body Butter – This award-winning body butter with softening shea butter and aloe vera was voted Britain’s best body butter – with one tub sold every minute worldwide! Put it on after your shower – this is sure to be a new favorite!
7. Circa Beauty Color Balance BB Cream – This all in one, easy application is perfect for daytime wear. It hydrates, primes & camouflages for instantly brightened, more even-toned skin.
8. No7 Lash Impact Mascara Black – This volume building mascara is uniquely formulated to help resist clumping, while thickening and building lashes. The fiber brush is specially designed to help apply the mascara smoothly adding intense volume for dramatic lashes and an amplified false-lash effect. For more dramatic lashes, simply add more coats to build lashes to your desired look.
9. Classic Lip Duo Lipstick/Lip Gloss – I am always a sucker for two-for-ones! This creamy rich Lip Colour in a classic lipstick on one end and a lightweight gloss on the other provides easy application for any mood! The luxury lipstick formula delivers intense pigment with a satin finish, in a non-drying formula. Or opt for the lip gloss to deliver transparent color and endless shine in a lasting, non-sticky formula. These perfectly matched shades can be worn together or alone to suit any occasion.
