The power of plants compels you… The power of plants compels you!


Did I ever tell you that I came *this close* to being a botany major? I always had a hard time putting the pieces together in my head when it came to chem and bio, but botany was the one thing that made total sense to me.

I think it was because plants are just everywhere, so I was always thinking about them. I’d pass a garden on the way to the library at school and think “Oooh… The Calvin Cycle!” or be eating pineapple slices at lunch and have the words “crassulacean acid metabolism” pop into my brain.

LOL! What a nerd…

I still think plants are super cool, and they’re the driving force behind today’s giveaway, which features products from the Neutrogena Naturals line.

Neutrogena Naturals is a line of cleansers, moisturizers and treatments made without chemical sulfates, parabens, petrolatum, dyes and phthalates. Powdered by the plants, products in the line are made from 94% plant-derived ingredients.

“We leveraged natural plant derived ingredients where possible and the average of our line is 94% natural. The remaining ingredients were thoughtfully chosen from a comprehensive array of safe and pure ingredients to ensure safety and accessibility. For example, we made the choice to use synthetic fragrances over natural fragrances because synthetic fragrances offer more hypoallergenic options which ensures that the final product will be safe and gentle. But we’re working everyday to improve our technologies to find even more natural ingredients we can use.”


Prepare to get your plant love on in three, two, one…

  11. Rachel P. says:

    Do you have a green thumb? – I do, somewhat! I worked at a greenhouse/garden center for 2 summers as a teenager and really enjoyed it. And about the cold weather- I like it to an extent for the fun things you can do, like skiing, sledding, ice skating, dressing so cute in winter clothes, and fresh snow looks so pretty and picturesque. HOWEVER. I hate actually BEING cold. I’d rather be sweating out of every pore in my body and baking in humidity than shivering in the cold. So it’s positive that I own enough gloves, ski hats, winter coats, and big leather boots to last me 3 lifetimes πŸ˜›

    My favorite flower is the Peony. My grandmother grew them when I was young & I fell in love with this big pretty pink or white flower. Wow, they smell really good too! As a nod to her, I used them in my wedding for bouquets & centerpieces. They are very expensive so I found inexpensive ways to recreate them. An online silk flower company made my GORGEOUS bouquets with look-a-like silks. For the centerpieces, I made 100 tissue paper flowers out of white, light pink, and medium pink colored paper. Everything was beautiful. πŸ™‚

  62. Isabel V says:

    Oh man! I absolutely love that Neutrogena collection! The makeup removing cleanser is my all-time favorite! As far as plants in general go, I like sketching them! I love flowers in general, but I’m a big fan of hydrangeas growing in basic soil (they turn the most gorgeous shade of blue), irises, and lupins! I’m also a serious indie music nerd, so I made my own ringtone with an editing program. It’s the first 30 seconds of a song called “Black Cab” by an adorable little Swede named Jens Lekman. I’ve had it for years! My text notification is also a little snippet of the ditty from the end of Sixteen Candles (“If You Were Here” by the Thompson Twins)!

    No socks, since it was nearly EIGHTY DEGREES here today!! πŸ˜€

    Fave flower is daffodil.

  114. Nicky says:

    I really want to get new skincare products in my routine.. specifically the Face Shop Rice Water Cleansing Foam and the Hada Labo Gokujun Hyaluronic Acid Toner for Oily/Combination skin or the Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser >_< also the Banana Boat Faces SPF 50+ sunscreen. Except I bought 2 facial cleansing foams and the Cetaphil Cleanser which is okay but I'd prefer something better. I might get a facial exfoliator if I feel like it but I have a peel off mask and a Black Sugar Scrub from Tony Moly lol sigh so much to use up lol. Only thing I don't like about the Cetaphil Cleanser is that I need to exfoliate if I do use it regularly because I still get build up on my skin and I'm lazy lol

  115. KAREN says:

    No green thumb here … plants dont last for longer than 2 weeks!

  116. Liz says:

    A green thumb runs in the family on my mother’s side. Legend has it that this is because a great-great-great etc grandfather was the result of a liaison between the lord’s son and the chief gardener’s daughter. No clue if it’s true, but the women on that side of the family all have a knack for plants, including me.

  117. Cristi says:

    I love this line. With money being tight right now, it’d be great to win this. πŸ™‚

    I am baking a pie, some cupcakes and maybe chocolate truffles!

  121. Susan B says:

    I am not baking anything for Christmas (other family members are taking care of that) but I am definitely baking for New Year’s Eve!

  122. Reg says:

    I really don’t like cold weather because I can never seem to get warm and have to wear twice as many layers as everyone else ;_;

  123. amy rouse says:

    I should be in Florida. Why am I not in Florida? What is this madness?

  124. Nikki says:

    My favorite flower is an iris.
