Confession UPDATE!!!! — September 17, 2009

Confession UPDATE!!!!

Check this out y’all!

I emailed a link to my Pond’s Towelettes review to the lovely Katie of the POND”S project and she FREAKED OUT* when she saw how many of you (us) don’t wash your faces at night, so she offered this awesome giveaway:

A free package of POND’S Towelettes to one of YOU!!  Woohoo!! How cool is that?




In addition to the towelettes, one lucky winner will also receive this super cute Nantucket makeup bag PLUS a water bottle PLUS a gym towel!  (Maybe that’s a hint that you should take your towelettes and use them after your work out at the gym????)

So here’s what I’m going to do:  if you left a comment on the original post, you won’t need to do anything, I’m going to go ahead and put your names in the hat. If you didn’t comment on the original POND’S post, you can comment on this one and I will put your names in the hat as well.  If you choose to comment on both posts, well that’s all fine and dandy but it won’t get you an extra entry – sorry!  You have until 3pm tomorrow (9/18/09) CST to enter – I’ll announce the winner tomorrow between 3 and 4pm (barring any unforseen circumstances) so get to commenting!  Any old comment will do, except ya know, keep ’em clean okay?!  🙂


*and by FREAKED OUT I mean she calmly said, “hey do you think your readers would like a giveaway too?” or something to that effect… (melodramatic, much?)

Confession is good for the face — September 15, 2009

Confession is good for the face

I have a confession…wanna hear it? Come closer…no, closer…oh come on, I don’t have cooties – get over here!

My secret is…*whispers low*…I don’t wash my face at night. GASP! SCREAM! GASP! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Really, I hardly ever wash my makeup off my face before I go to bed at night because 1) I’m lazy and 2) see #1. By the time I’m ready for bed, it’s all I can do to brush my teeth (which ironically I do EVERY SINGLE NIGHT), which you would think that since I’m already at the sink it wouldn’t be a big deal to wash my face too, but you know what? IT IS A BIG DEAL! I mean I would have to get the washcloth out of the cabinet, wait for the water to get hot, splash my face, lather in the soap, spend 15 minutes rinsing the soap off of my face, blindly reach for the towel, dry my face, THEN since I would have a squeaky clean face I would feel obligated to put lotion on, and since I put lotion on, I might as well put on some of that expensive under eye cream, and oh yeah, can’t forget about the age spot cream that I have used all of 4 times in the last 2 years, so I have to put that on as well and by this time it’s midnight and I’m cranky and tired and all I really wanted to do was JUST GO TO BED IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!


Plus the fact that I have somewhat-dry skin, so I don’t have to worry about breakouts, is why I hardly ever wash my face at night…

…until these guys came along and changed my mind about pre-bed face washing.


Those wonderful POND’S people sent me some of their face towelettes (I love saying towelette! Moist towelette, anyone?) to try for 30 days, so I did. AND I LOVES THEM. Really. They are already wet (well, moist ) and they take off makeup that I didn’t even know I was wearing. Easy peasey! 30 seconds of rubbing the soft little guy on my face and I’m ready to head for the bed – woohoo! No rinsing required, and I don’t feel like there was any residue or anything. Just squeaky clean goodness all around. Sometimes afterwards I would do the whole lotion routine, but I figured if my face was clean, that was good enough. I’ve already got them on my shopping list for my next drugstore run, so I will be buying more of these.

I don’t have any to give away because I used all 30 of the ones that came in my package, but if you go here, you can print off a coupon for $1.50 off of one package and see some cool stuff on their website.

Now, do you have something you need to confess? Do you skip the face washing thing at night like I do? Do you steal candy from your coworkers secret stash? Do you watch trashy Lifetime Movies when no one else is around? Come on, ‘fess up!!
