Beauty Tips From Ponds, Q-tips, Dove and Vaseline for me and for you

Ponds invited me to participate in a 30 day challenge with the Ponds Cleansing wipes. They sent me a package of Ponds and a package of Olay. It only took me two nights to figure out that I love Ponds over Olay. Maybe it was an already small preference against Olay, but as soon as I opened it I couldn’t stand the smell. I used the Olay first because I wanted to try and have an open mind to both packages. I also did not like the texture of the Olay cleansing wipe. So there were two strikes against the Olay Cleansing Wipes.

Ponds_pic_0 I then tried the Ponds Cleansing Wipes. I loved the smell. I love pulling them out and wiping them on my nose and all around my face. Sick huh? The texture felt lighter than the Olay Cleansing Wipes and made my face fell fresh. So in two days time I found that I like Ponds and not Olay.

I’ve been sharing tips on the widget to the right for a month and now I’m signed up for another month. Here are a few sample tips that were found on the widget last month.



DH_pic_34 Loose, wavy hair is a hot trend. To create the laid back style of loose waves; disperse Dove Curl & Sculpt Defining Mousse through hair and braid into sections. When hair is dry, undo the braids and finger comb through it for a free, effortless look.

Getting home late from the party and too tired for your normal makeup removal routine? Stash Pond’s Wet Qtips_pic_5 Cleansing Towelette in your bedside table for fast and easy makeup removal…you don’t even need water. They have an exclusive cleansing system, with oil- and dirt-trapping fibers, that works like a magnet to remove up to 40 percent more make-up than other leading towelettes to keep you looking your best. One less regret in the morning.

It’s important to take care of your underarms just like the rest of your skin. vas_pic_14Dove deodorant is introducing a new at-home beauty treatment to help care for your underarms– The PitiCure™. Simply put, a PitiCure is to your underarms as a pedicure is to your feet. It is a simple three-step process that cleanses and keeps underarms stubble free for longer. Go to the videos tab and find out how to give yourself an at-home  PitiCure.

DD_pic_4Trying to fit in that evening workout class and short on time?  Throw a pack of Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelettes in your purse to help remove make-up before your workout and wipe off sweat afterwards.  Their oil-and dirt-trapping fibers work like a magnet to remove dirt and oil, removing up to 40 percent more make-up than other leading towelettes, even waterproof mascara.  Your skin will stay looking fresh while on the go

I received a package from Unilever in thanks for hosting the widget last month, I’ve been sitting here trying for the life of me to remember what came in the package and what I did with that package. This house has been like a mail center for the past few months. Most of it I’m trying to send to charity but I think this box got lost in the shuffle. Makes me sad, but hopefully since they are offering one small box of assorted products for one  of my readers then you will get to see what’s in the box and enjoy it. I’m sure I’ll find it one day and it will be like Christmas.
