Short jean skirts, giant designer sunglasses, flip-flops and shiny lips that come from a minty green tube. If you see a girl who looks like she’s around 20 and is sporting any of these accessories, it would probably be safe to say she is an ASU student. With long treks across campus in the hot Arizona sun, it’s hard to look cool when you’re getting ready in a hurry and running on three hours of sleep. That’s why you cannot sit through an entire class without seeing at least one girl pull out a tube of C.O. Bigelow’s Mentha Lip balm from her over-sized tote bag. Mentha Lip balm along with a variety of other cosmetics made by C.O. Bigelow, are favorites of Arizona State University students because of their high-quality reputation and natural ingredients that make taking care of your skin a no-brainer.
As America’s oldest apothecary approaches its 180th birthday, C.O. Bigelow Apothecary is coming to Arizona State University to share its time-honored formulas in a fun, modern setting. Based in New York’s Greenwich Village, C.O. Bigelow is renowned for its century-old honest, genuine and trustworthy pharmacy recipes. The Apothecary has attracted a cult following of college students as well as celeb devotees like Sarah Jessica Parker and Mary-Kate Olsen.
C.O. Bigelow will be celebrating their birthday with the nation’s campus famous for knowing how to have a good time on April 23, 2008 in a mobile AirStream stocked with activities and treats. The day will be packed with fun, free apothecary-themed events for the full C.O. Bigelow experience. Take a break from studying or stop by between class on Wednesday, April 23 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and check out the festivities, which will include:
- Design your own C.O. Bigelow “Honest. Genuine. Trustworthy.” T-shirt
- Vote for the presidential candidate who you think is the most honest, genuine and trustworthy
- Sample C.O. Bigelow’s penny candy, just like the original apothecary used to carry
- Receive a problem/solution skincare consultation from a C.O. Bigelow expert to create a personalized Bigelow skincare regimen
- See how Lemon Body Cream is created and walk away with a free sample from a fresh-blended batch
The C.O. Bigelow bash will be located on the Student Recreation Complex Fields at ASU Tempe Campus.
