Bethenny Frankel held court at the Renaissance New York Times Square Hotel’s new R Lounge to introduce America to the convenience of Drugstore.com with her now-iconic wit. Drugstore.com retails so much more than prescription medicine; they sell hard-to-find shades of make-up and similarly scarce products that aren’t always found in each and every physical drug store.
Frankel’s must have beauty picks include Charmin Flushable Wipes, L’Oreal Voluminous Original Volume Building Mascara and Boots Botanics Ultimate Lift Eye Gel.
The website takes expediency to a new level with its auto-delivery program, so America’s favorite working mother picked out her must-haves for motherhood. Frankel says she doesn’t like to leave her apartment if she doesn’t have to (a sentiment with which we can all empathize) so shopping at an online drugstore that has ten to fifteen times the selection of a physical one seems like a no-brainer.
You can get all your needs online, from the famously volatile Cookie gets her Kong toys, treats, and dog food , as well as the Hydrobowl. For her baby, Bryn, Frankel picks out Pampers diapers and the Smilac line, as she tells us Bryn is transitioning to formula. On the very morning of event, Frankel discovered the Munchkin Deluxe Auto/Car Bottle Warmer, which frees up a baby’s feeding schedule by warming bottles on the go. Frankel uses the ultra-gentle 7th Generation cleaning products around the house, and gets a little housekeeping help from the automated vacuum, the Roomba.
For beauty, Frankel uses Charmin Flushable Wipes on everything – on the baby, to take off her eye make-up, on her hands. “I’ll probably wipe each one of you,” she jokes to the assembled editors and bloggers. To keep her skin ever camera-ready, Frankel leans heavily on the DDF Revolve 400x Micro-Polishing System, and she uses Klorane Dry Shampoo to get every last minute out of a blow-out.
Perhaps because of her two reality series, in which Frankel comes off as a down-to-earth power woman with no fear of oversharing, the guests at the event aren’t too reserved. They call out questions and share their opinions of her choices. One writer asks which of her beauty products her husband Jason steals most often. The reply? Frankel’s exfoliating gloves – they saved her husband from a bad sunburn once. He also likes her sunscreen wipes, which are always available at Drugstore.com. The wipes make a nice alternative to gloppy lotions that might stave off skin cancer but leave the wearer with a greasy, unhygienic feeling, but they’re thin on the ground at smaller drugstores. Just another example of modern technology to the rescue. To shop for your must-haves, visit www.drugstore.com.
