'Mini makeovers,' product demonstrations to be featured at Bartell's health and beauty event

SEATTLE — Bartell Drugs is sponsoring "Health and Beauty" events this month at dozens of its stores, the regional retail pharmacy chain said.

Events will start Sunday and run for 13 days afterward, and will include blood-glucose testing, glucose-meter exchange and education, cholesterol testing, bone-density screenings, blood-pressure testing and others. In addition, there will be free "mini makeover" demonstrations and hair styling tips by Conair and product samplings ranging from cosmetics to supplements.

Representatives from Seattle-based Heather's Tummy Care will provide information about digestive health and irritable bowel syndrome, while 30 Bartell's stores will have demonstrations of products from Almay, Covergirl, Neutrogena, NYX and Revlon. At five stores, representatives of EveryMove.com will provide information about their new health rewards program with Bartell's, and customers signing up will receive an EveryMove card with extra bonus points.
