Unilever & Walmart Have Skin Care Covered this Season

Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper. Opinions are 100% my own.



Ok, so it’s finally getting cold outside and it’s about time. Did you know that in Los Angeles, raining is considered our winter? It’s true. I really doesn’t rain any other time of the year except in the winter months. Growing up on the east coast and now living here in LA proper for the past 10+ years, it’s been hard to get used to this fact.

So how do you keep your skin hydrated and protected when the cold just doesn’t want to be your friend? You head to the Walmart aisle! You know you’re going to be there anyway working on that holiday list, so why not visit their face care aisle? Walmart has a wide selection of Unilever cleansers that will not only clean your skin beautifully and keep your skin protected but they will fit into your budget. #FaceCareForMe


I change my face cleanser over to a product that won’t strip the moisture out of it like Pond’s Cucumber Cold Cream Cleanser. Growing up, Pond’s Cold Cream was always on my mother’s counter in the bathroom so I too have been using it for years. And this Cucumber Cleanser smells delish and removes the day’s makeup, even waterproof mascara, lickety-split, and nourishes my skin with much-needed moisture in one easy skin care routine.


Be sure to head to one of the two in-store Beauty Barista events at Walmart! Scheduled to take place 11/16 – 12/16 in Louisville, Kentucky and Winter Garden, Florida, you can learn about hot trends and product innovations and receive samples from the Beauty Barista.

In-store Beauty Barista Locations:

  1. Winter Garden Walmart - 16313 New Independence Pkwy. Winter Garden, FL. 34787
  2. Louisville Walmart - 4840 Outer Loop Louisville, KY 40219

How are you taking care of your skin this season?
