Back to School with Walmart and P&G Beauty Tips

Don't say it. Don't remind me that this is it, the final month of summer. I'm not ready to go back to work or send the kids back to school so I'm going to pretend I didn't hear you mention it. Mm, kay? I know it's what everyone's talking about anyhow, right? For many parents, it's the most wonderful time of the year. Not for me. I'm perfectly content with sleeping in, late breakfasts and flexible schedules. And if I don't want to shave me legs, I can throw on a pair of Lulus and no one will know. But alas, I can only rage against the dying of the sunlight for so long. If the calendar insists, who am I to deny that we are only mere weeks away from the inevitable? Ready or not, I've got back-to-school tips from COVERGIRL Make-up Pro Veronica Chu and Pantene Consulting Stylist Justin German for those looking to incorporate fall trends this September.

1. Every great beauty look starts with a great regimen:

“Following a daily hair care regimen is the basis of great looking hair! One of the staples of this is a shampoo and conditioner like the Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner – I love this collection because it’s designed to repair hair, control moisture levels and prevent damage for a soft, smooth, moisturized feel. This makes it a fantastic option for girls experimenting with new styles and putting their hair through its paces so it looks healthy and strong.” – Justin German

“Similarly, great makeup starts with great skin. For young women in their teens or early twenties, their bodies are still growing and factors like stress and hormonal changes can cause skin to act out. I always recommend following a cleansing routine morning and night, followed by a good moisturizer. One of my favourite cleansers is the Olay Total Effects Refreshing Citrus Face Scrub – the oil free formula won’t clog pores and cleanses without over drying. For a moisturizer, apply the Olay Total Effects Featherweight Moisturizer – I like this one because it’s super light-weight and includes an SPF for added protection.” – Veronica Chu

2. Less is more:

“Playing with hair products and different hair styles is really fun, and it’s a great way to learn! But using too much product can leave hair crunchy, frizzy, flat, or oily. Start off with lighter products like detanglers or the Pantene Pro-V Stylers All-in-One Styling Balm to avoid this – the light multi-tasking formula tames frizz and flyaways while protecting from damage. As an added benefit, other styling products can be layered on top so it’s a great one to experiment and play with.” – Justin German

“When girls start asking to use makeup, think of it as a gradual transition with a very soft and natural feel. Mascara is an easy way to start experimenting – I usually suggest younger girls start with a single coat of brown mascara to give a more natural look. My favourite for beginners is COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume with its wide, straight barrel that makes it really easy to handle. Once comfortable with LashBlast Volume, then branch out and try others in the COVERGIRL LashBlast family (Bloom, Clump Crusher or Fusion) and experiment with other pigments.” – Veronica Chu

3. Fresh and effortless is in:

“Undone, dropped out waves are everywhere and they’re so easy to create, especially if your daughter showers at night. Simply apply a leave in conditioner to the hair while it’s still damp, then braid the hair. In the morning, break down the braid and spray the roots with Pantene Root Reboot Dry Shampoo, adding volume and texture. Not only is this look on trend, but it’s a great time saver too!” – Justin German

“Dewy skin is a staple for the upcoming season. What makes this look particularly good for younger girls is that it’s so natural for them – it’s all about a fresh youthful glow that they already have! To help bring out this natural glow and even out skin tone, apply a small amount of Olay Total Effects Pore Minimizing CC Cream. I love the extremely light weight, oil-free formula because it allows for even colour while minimizing the look of pores.” – Veronica Chu

For those who are starting to think about shaving, the new Venus Swirl razor is designed with new FlexiBall technology featuring unique four-way movement to shave those hard-to-reach places. And for a fresh clean that lasts all day, try the new Fresh Outlast body washes from Olay that contain three times more mild cleansers than before.

Special Event

Since Walmart is the #1 destination for back-to-school beauty product must-haves, P&G is hosting a beauty event on Saturday, August 15 at Walmart at Square One Mall in Mississauga. Their experts, Veronica Chu and Justin German will be there along with fellow #PGMom blogger Stephanie from How to Survive Life in the Suburbs. There will be live demos and helpful back-to-school beauty advice for moms and daughters. Head on over to the beauty aisle (on the 2nd floor) between 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. to enjoy a mini touch-up and stock up on back-to-school beauty essentials.
