Hooray! Hooray! It’s finally spring. πŸ™‚


Just about time to put away the winter coats and boots and bust out the cute spring dresses and sandals.

Hmm… Now that I think about it, along with revampinng my wardrobe, now might also be a good time to rethink my skincare regime, to stay on top of the weather (not as cold and drying anymore).

How did your skin fare this winter? If it could use some tender loving care, you’ll definitely want to enter this weekend’s Neutrogena giveaway, which features five skincare products to cleanse, exfoliate, heal and protect.

One (1) Neutrogena Spring Cleaning gift basket valued at $40 filled with the following goodies:

  • There are two ways to enter, and you can do both of them for two chances to win. First, you can enter by leaving a comment at the bottom of this post, a comment about anything at all, like, what’s your favorite color (mine changes a lot, but right now it’s purple)? When was the last time you rode the rails? Do you prefer hard or soft pillows? Do you go all out for spring cleaning? Do you play any musical intruments? Which Neutrogena product/s would you stockpile if you found out they were going to discontinued soon? Are you a fast talker, or do you speak slowly? How do you feel about flip-flops to work? — you get the idea.
  • Second, you can enter by following me on twitter Twitter @karenmbb and retweeting (RT) the following message:
    • Follow @karenmbb and RT to Win a Neutrogena Spring Cleaning Skincare Gift Basket!

  • The deadline to enter is Sunday, March 31, 2013 (Easter!) at 11:59 p.m. (PST).
  • Entrants must enter using a valid email address and/or Twitter account to win.
  • A maximum of two (2) entries per person — one within the comments at the bottom of this post, and a second entry via Twitter addressed to me @karenmbb.
  • Contest is open to individuals in the United States who have reached the age of majority according to their local laws (18 in the United States with these exceptions: Alabama and Nebraska, 19; Mississippi, 21).
  • Tabs and I (heretofore referred to as “T-Money and K-Dawg”) will select one (1) winner at random from the entries either left in the comments at the bottom of this blog post or addressed to @karenmbb on Twitter.
  • The winner will be announced here within 48 hours of the deadline.
  • Void where prohibited by law.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Blue/Turquoise is consistently my favorite color, but mint and green are also up there!

  2. camille says:

    Happy weekend! I like red, but I tend to gravitate towards yellow. It make me happy πŸ™‚ And it goes well with my skin tone. What’s Tabs’ favourite colour? πŸ™‚

  3. Maria J. says:

    My Favorite color has always been Yellow, but every now and then I’ll fall back in Love with Pink.

  4. Katherine says:

    My favorite color is blue.

  5. Carolina says:

    I am a skincare junkie since I worked retail… I love trying new regimens and new cleansers for my Clarisonic! By the way, I love your blog and whenever I want to purchase something, I look for your reviews… Thank you for all the work!!! πŸ™‚

  6. Heather says:

    Pillows! I like ’em soft and squishy. : )

  7. Olivia says:

    My favourite colour is Pink. My whole room is pink and most my clothes are haha!

  8. Melissa says:

    I’ve barely had times to paint my nails lately! But I have fallen very recently in love with Neutrogena products (their eye cream, moisturizer, face wipes)–I really like their Healthy Defense moisturizer and would definitely stockpile that if it were discontinued.

  9. varsha says:

    Love their wipes..

  10. Agata says:

    Hey Karen, an awesome giveaway again. The pictured wipes are my absolute favorite Neutrogena product, I couldn’t live without them. My favorite color changes a lot too, purple is always one of my favorites but I think coral is my very favorite at the moment. Have a wonderful weekend. It’s finally sunny in Michigan, although still quite cold…

  11. Shelly says:

    my dog has giant ears!

  12. Gracey says:

    My favourite series are Harry Potter, Ranger’s Apprentice, Artemis Fowl, and Alex Rider πŸ˜€

  13. Carrie Mitchell says:

    Random fact- I am looking forward to Easter so I can steal Cadburry creme eggs from my kids.

  14. Chelsea says:

    Emerald green is my favorite color. And I’m a fast talker to the extent that my French prof had to constantly tell me to talk more slowly, and my mom has to tell me to slow down when we’re on the phone. I talk fast especially when I’m excited about something.

  15. Lisa says:

    I’ve really gotten into the mint green trend. I’m sad no one seems to be able to make a decent shadow in that color. There should be a paint pot or something.

  16. Amy says:

    My favorite color is green! Emerald green, if you want to get specific. Part of the reason I was so excited to see this year’s Pantone color collection. πŸ™‚

  17. Pamela says:

    I love orange! Especially with lime green. It’s so cheerful!

  18. Justene says:

    I am also loving purple right now! But black is definitely the color I wear most, because it hides my kitty’s hair so well.

  19. Joanna says:

    Red is my favorite color!

  20. Roxanne says:

    I’m working overtime on Easter. I’m not entirely thrilled.

  21. jane says:

    What do you do if you don’t get along with your sibling’s significant other? This is so new to me . . .

  23. courtnie says:

  27. Brianna says:

    I love this giveaway!!! Neutrogena is pretty much all I use. . .Also, I totally go all out for spring cleaning – deep clean everything, purge and declutter, and total reorganization! Although my “spring” cleaning usually occurs in August! lol. Don’t ask me why; that’s just usually the time of year that I get around to it. πŸ˜€

  28. Rebecca Cash says:

    yellow. or pink. or orange. mmmm a dot pattern with all three!!!!

  32. auroragyps says:

    I prefer a firm foam pillow. I found my dream one at Sears years ago. My ex & our friend were kind of embarrassed when I put it on the ground to try it out (yup, I was lying on the floor of Sears to try out a pillow), but how else will you know if you like a pillow for sleeping?

  33. Christine says:

    My favorite color has always been purple!

  44. Sarah says:

    I’ve been playing classical piano for 8 years so far! I’ve kept it a hidden talent though, because I love surprising people if I play for them. I can come off as a cliche teenager most of the time to people who don’t know me, so through the piano I can show the depth and emotion in my character that I often keep hidden from people. It’s truly my passion!

  45. Elly says:

    Hope you’re having a nice weekend! As far as instruments, I’m usually a singer but I’ve actually been taking classes for the last few months on how to play the cello, which has been tremendously exciting…

  46. Taylor BB says:


  47. Mags says:

    I always try to save money by purchasing the “bargain” brand of items. One day Target was out of their version of the Neutrogena make-up remover wipes, so I bought the Neutrogena version. SOoooooooo much better, there’s no going back!

    I’d love to win this set <3

  48. Monica says:

    Hoping and wishing for a warm and sunny Easter!

  49. Jessica says:

    I love gray in any shade!!

  50. MollySC says:

    I’m grooving on mint green πŸ™‚

  51. Lulle says:

    Flip-flops at work: not for me! I guess it could be ok depending where you work, but in an office, that’s not really appropriate imo. Even for casual Fridays…

  52. Terrani says:

    My favorite color is currently purple but turquoise is certainly creeping its way up to my favorite color

  56. Diane says:

    The weather has been superb in NY recently πŸ™‚

  57. Elizabeth Stewart says:

    Mauve is my color right now and with some shimmer. It goes well with smoky eye and with light clear pastels for spring. It is a gentle color playing s supporting role, and blends well into many looks. Grey, silver and toasty are enriched by mauve.

  62. Caroline says:

    My favorite color of all time is blue. I love many colors but blue is something very safe for me. I’m very partial to pinks and reds and will incorporate it now and then

  63. Rosie says:

    I love blue. sky blue or navy blue, especially. Today we took a ride to Target and BJ’s. It was a gorgeously sunny day, in the 50s. My husband had the sunroof open and I was sure glad I was wearing SPF 40…
    Happy Easter!!

  64. Tania says:

    Favorite color is fuchsia. I think that the only appropriate workplace where flip flops are acceptable would be a pool or water park.

  65. Caitlin says:

    Happy Easter!!

  66. MelodyJ says:

    My favorite color is red. I love all colors in general.

    I have to do some spring cleaning of my own, house and skincare!

  76. Nlinton says:

    In the case of a Zombie Apocalypse, I’d make a run for the entire Neutrogena pink grapefruit line. My favorite color is coral. I go all out for spring cleaning. I like soft pillows and as for flip flops at work, it depends on the company.

  77. mrsshukra says:

    Happy Easter! Watching The Bible marathon this weekend.

  78. Vanessa says:

  81. Alice says:

    I love cheese and lip balm!

  82. Jennifer Ryder says:

  88. melissa says:

    My favorite color is purple but I love how peach looks on me.

  89. Sandra G says:

    My favorite color is pink – but it has to be a light pastel kind of pink. That hot pink/magenta stuff isn’t my favorite. I also dig purple!
    As for instruments, I know a tiny bit of piano, but I can play the ocarina. Just for kicks. (:

  90. Ambrrr says:

    That mask/cleanser is the business, y’all.

    I don’t normally watch cable since we don’t have it at home, but I’m at a hotel this weekend for a mini-vacation, and think its sort of funny how much Egyptian-related programming is on this weekend. Currently watching The Mummy. Because that’s in the spirit of Passover/Easter, right?

  104. Lake says:

  115. Kylie says:

    if I found out Neutrogena was going to discontinue their Clean-Pore Oil-Eliminating Astringent, I’d go batshit crazy! I’d stockpile to the point of ridiculousness. I’ve been using this product since my best friend introduced it to me in high school. That was about eight years ago! I had acne and blackheads, and honestly, I couldn’t find a solution to keep my teenage acne at bay, but when she showed me this product, it’s been helping me keep my skin clear ever since!

  116. Carly says:

    I love Neutrogena skin care- especially the makeup remover! Happy Easter!
