A Different Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway each day for 12 days, sponsored by Neutrogena

The holidays were so much easier when I was a kid. Back then I had a totally different kind of to-do list…

  1. Gorge on candy canes, other sweets
  2. Sleep in every day over break
  3. Find “Santa’s” secret cache of presents in the house
  4. Pretend to be surprised about said presents on Christmas morning

Every year, to find the presents we knew were hidden somewhere in the house, my little brother and I systematically moved through all of the rooms and closets like trained Army rangers. Sometimes, we’d even reverse engineer the presents that were already under the tree, delicately removing the tiny strips of tape and unfolding the corners of the wrapping paper until we could confirm the contents, and then we’d return everything to its pristine condition without leaving behind so much as a trace (we were never caught).


Gosh, I miss that! Adults always tell kids to enjoy it while it lasts, but it usually falls on deaf ears…

Nowadays, the holidays are a high-traffic, high-stress whirlwind of errands and activities. I try to have as much fun as I can (and consume as many candy canes and TJ’s Dark Chocolate Stars as humanly possible), but still. When did we get so busy over the holidays?

If this is also a busy time for you, you’ll definitely want to enter today’s giveaway for a Holiday Survival Kit from Neutrogena.

Yup, it’s day 7 of 12 Days of Giveaways on Makeup and Beauty Blog (NOTE: click here and scroll down the page to enter any other ongoing giveaways). πŸ™‚

One (1) Neutrogena Holiday Survival Kit gift basket (valued at $81) filled with the following:

Holiday stress and your skin

Ò€œHoliday stress always raises our cortisol (or ‘stress hormone’) levels. We often neglect our usual skincare routines during this busy time and indulge in high-glycemic index foods which can increase stress-related skin breakouts. Keeping your skin clean is key. If you are strapped for time and acne-prone, try Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes. They remove make-up and daily build-up and wonÒ€ℒt aggravate acne-prone skin.Ò€

    I first used the facial soap bar to which I experience great results πŸ™‚

    Happy Holidays!

  5. Almina says:

    Last time I went to the drugstore, I decided to try out some ELF products. I bought the eyelid primer and eyeshadow brush!

  6. Lisa Brown says:

    It takes 30 or more minutes to get ready to go out on the town

  7. Krista says:

    I don’t keep any makeup in my purse. I live dangerously.

  8. debbie yoder says:

    love Neutrogena Rainbath shower jel,use their face moistuizer and shampoos,TY!

  9. Erin says:

    I love Neutrogena sunscreen and use it every day.

  10. I’d say it takes me about 1 1/2 hours to get ready for a night out, not too bad right?

  11. Brooke says:

    One of our kitties (who shall not be named *coughButterscough*) opened up a bunch of presents under the tree last night. I woke up to a new pair of socks being chewed on, a pair of pj pants being snuggled up into, a book being licked, and a pair of earrings in the sink. Oh joys of the holidays!

  12. TriciaJP says:

    Whoa, whoa, whoa! Neutrogena makes a primer??? Where have you been all my life? (Almost literally as I’ve been using their products since I was 12… True love.)

  13. Jennifer says:

    Like you, Karen, my sister and I would unwrap the packages from under the tree while our parents were out. We’d go so far as to try on the clothing–Mom never knew!!! We told later in our adulthood, but she never believed us.

    My first car, ah it was a dream mobile! A Ford Galaxy XL (offshot of LTD)sedan convertible. It was a gorgeous light sparkly (kind of) green with a white top and white interior. Clearly I was insane when I sold it to buy a new Mustang. I’ve never quite recovered since realizing my stupidity.


  14. Faiza says:

    The first Neutrogena product I used was the face wash. It worked so well on me! It didn’t dry out my skin and it helped prevent breakouts. Wonderful brand!

  15. Erika says:

    I love neutrogena products but I’m wondering if the shine control really works. I’m SUPER oily. I don’t think anything can solve it πŸ™

  16. Shannon says:

    I’m such a big greaseball, this kit would be right up my alley.

  17. Ash Johnson says:

    I like the Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector . It really cover the circles under my eyes.

  18. Mami2jcn says:

    I like using the Neutrogena Shine Control Pressed Powder.

  19. Heidi says:

    When I first started doing more for my face than just splashing water on it to clean it, I used the clear Neutrogena glycerin bar soap.

  20. MJ says:

    Matte bronzers since my pores are a little biggish~

  21. Amie F says:

    I prefer no bronzer at all. I am pale and they end up making my face look orange or worse, like my skin is dirty.

  22. gabis says:

    I’m here just to say how upset I am this giveaway is for U.S residents only πŸ™ I’m from Brazil :~
    I love Neutrogena’s oil-free moisturizers, sunscreens, anti-residue shampoo and their grapefuit line. And gosh I wish Neutrogena Brazil could offer half of the products the U.S line does. The range of products is not very diverse here.

  23. Amber says:

    <3 neutrogena !

  31. Lulle says:

  41. Joy says:

    What was supposed to have been my first car? ’78 mustang. What actually was my first car? ’84 Plymouth Voyager (aka: the first mini-van) My sister was driving my soon-to-be car while home on college break and some guy in a huge pick-up truck backed into it in a parking lot and totalled it. It ended up being somewhat okay though; I was able to drive around 6 friends at a time. Albeit in a not as cool car.

  42. Elizabeth Diaz says:

    Good Lord, I had some kind of Izuzu (not even sure of the spelling) I would wash that thing every weekend back in the 80’s! lol

  43. Tansy says:

    Shimmmer bronzer for nighttime indoors — matte for daytime,outdoors or the office. One for every occasion!

  63. A. Mar says:

    First Nuetrogena product I used was the facial bar throughout high school. Nothing worked better for what my skin was like then. There are plenty of great skincare items from drug stores! My regular purchase is St Ives Apricot Scrub. Once I found that for exfoliating, my skin took a dramatic turn for the awesome.

  64. Susie says:

    The last drugstore beauty product I purchased were the Yes to Cucumbers facial towelettes. I do find them soothing! πŸ™‚

    Merry Christmas, Darlingggg! <3

  71. Heather says:

    I’ve been using Neutrogen’s basic liquid soap cleanser (the one that’s orange/yellow, comes in a huge clear soap dispenser) for nearly 6 years now, don’t know what I’d do without it!

  72. h. says:

    wearing some NARS blush right now

  73. Trixie says:

    My first Neutrogena product was the original facewash. I just started using it again after 10 years. I love the medicinal smell!!

    The last drugstore makeup product I bought was one of the new Burt’s Bees lip glosses.

    Hope I win!

  79. Rhia R. says:

    Can’t remember the Neutrogena product I ever used, but I currently use their hand cream every night. I think you made a rec for it a while back. Needless to say, I’ve been hooked ever since!

  80. Caitlin says:

    The neutrogena oil free makeup remover. It’s a total replica of the Clinique All About Eyes (purple bottle), and it’s a third of the price!

  81. Christine says:

    I just had a Gingerbread latte (yum!) from Starbucks, and am now a little anxious to finish up work!

  82. colleen boudreau says:

    It takes me about 2 hours to get ready before I go out.

  83. @PiratePigg says:

    I don’t really dig too many bronzers, due to my uber paleness. Hard Candy’s tiki bronzers looks like it would be good for some contouring though.

  84. Katie B says:

    My first car was an old Chevy Malibu. I was the first of 4 girls and that car made it throught all of us. I am pretty sure it died after the 4th “driver”!

  85. aclearcutsign says:

    I think the first ever product I’ve used was their face wash, been using it regularly since.

  123. Lisa H. says:

    Neutrogena used to have a product called something like “Nighttime Pore Clarifying Gel.” You put it on before bed, it dried clear, and didn’t dry me out. It banished zits and shrank blackheads/pores. I think my skin looked better when I was a teenager than it does now thanks to that product. Bring it back, Neutrogena!

  124. Grace D. says:

    Dr. Who is awesome. πŸ˜€
    and so are you.

  125. Beth says:

    My first Neutrogena product was the shampoo and conditioner (circa 1987) that you were instructed by Seventeen magazine to use to “strip” your hair of any buildup. I also remember the Rainbath and the sesame Body Oil from that time period. Loved that stuff!

  126. Kat says:

    pretty good goodie bag =D esp with the powder

  169. Dollie says:

    The first Neutrogena product I used was their facial soap when I was in school. In fact, Neutrogena wasn’t even available in India then and I had to ask my relatives in USA to send them for me.

    Last time I bought drugstore makeup was day before yesterday-the Maybelline cream eye shadow eye tattoo-haven’t worn eyeshadow for years and was inspired to do so over the holidays (thanks Karen!), but haven’t been able to because my eyelids have been all allergied out πŸ™ So sad!

  173. Barbara says:

  174. Alexis D. says:

  175. LauraA says:

    Make and model of my first car was a 1973 Ford Bronco. It was orange, and by the time I got around to driving it (1991), it didn’t have working seat belts–needed to get new ones.


  176. pat says:

    My Secret Santa asked for nail polish. Rite-Aid was having a super sale! I got 25 polishes for her… and accidentally bought 10 for myself. i swatched them last night – one color on each nail. Still deciding if i should leave my nails this way for Christmas. lol

  193. Madelynn says:

  194. nekosan says:

    My longhair calico cat was very upset by the rain when I tried taking her for a walk today.

  207. Dunya says:

    I remember old school Neutrogena bath soap, back when the brand was still, like, Norweigan or something. I love the smell of their grapefruit products now!

    The 1st neutrogena product that I tried as a teen was the oil free acne wash

  209. Michelle Teixeira says:

    I think the first Neutrogena product I tried was an acne foundation. It is silly that I thought I needed it because I have never had any acne ever. But, it was thoroughly marketed that teens should use it and I didn’t know better then.

  216. Shannon says:

    I’m fascinated right now with the chapstick in the shape of a ball. eos? something like that? Anyway: love. I’m convinced that somehow the round shape makes it more moisturizing. Yeah, that doesn’t make sense to me either.
