for back to school I need...


With all things BlogHer on my mind the last couple of weeks, It seems I can't for the life of me remember to pick up some face lotion... Iv'e been surviving on samples I find around the house the last week...

am I the only one that does this?

Now that back to school shopping is unavoidable (how did summer go by so fast?) face lotion will go to the top of the list of "school supplies". I need to take care of me as much as I need to take care of Jeremiah. 

Neutrogena is usually what I buy for cleansing and moisturizing. Iv'e been buying it for years, I think the ease of finding it at most grocery stores or Target (the only places I go out to :), the descent price and how well my face does with it....
or maybe it's their good advertising of the 90's...

I can still remember when Jennifer Love Hewitt would wash her face with it in the commercials...right around the time when I used to watch Party of Five...


Yes, I think that was the time....when I got hooked on Neutrogena. 


Neutrogena and their Wave for Change campaign are doing good things during the back to school season. For every Neutrogena product you purchase and register online, Neutrogena will give one dollar to Global Giving.

This is my first time visiting the Global Giving site, but already I love everything I see there. I love when brands help organizations like this, it makes me feel good about buying their products (even more of a reason for me to go out and get some moisturizer).
It also helps to remind me how easy it is for each of us to make a change towards something good. Whether it's registering a product online knowing that at the same time you are helping someone out, donating directly, helping a friend or neighbor out, taking the time to educate our children on what exactly good is, or doing something special for a loved one.

I have to admit that I struggle with this at times, I get so wrapped up in myself and my family's life and helping seems harder than it really is.

I need to take more steps, towards doing something out of the ordinary for someone. I think that alone would do wonders for my face....

My moisturizer has got me thinking...who knew?

it's the little things right?



Are you in need of a new facial product?
Neutrogena has back to school savings right now. They have a whole new Acne Stress Control line which seems perfect if you have a teenager in your life... I think Jeremiah is getting really close to the age where pimples seem like a stressful event (: I remember those days.

Have you tried Neutrogena products? What do you like/dislike about them?

I too use neutragena! I use the Ageless Essentials day cream and night cream. It keeps my skin even and it smell so good.

You are so right. Neutrogena did have great advertising during the 90's. I can smell the bar soap now. My mom used to use it all of the time. I'm wanting to try their natural line.

I like Neutogena products and have recommended them as an OTC brand to clients at the salon. And I was infatuated with Party of Five!!! LOVED that show...miss it!

Hey Marcela, I've been using Neutrogena for some time..I started in my teenage years with Clearasil back in the day but then they discontinued the bars. I chose bars above liquids because they give me a fresh clean feel. I like Neutrogena because it's been consistently good to my skin. I didn't know about the campaign they were launching, thanks for the info!
