Try Neutrogena® Naturals Purifying Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes for a Great Cause!


I recently joined Influenster and I have been loving it! What is Influenster you ask? As it states on their website, "Influenster is a community of trendsetters, social media hotshots, and educated consumers who live to give opinions of products and experiences." Join them, attach your social media accounts, answer surveys and question and wait to qualify to try some fabulous new products for free, Then all that you have to do is tell all your friends about them.

I answered a short survey and qualified for the Neutrogena® Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. They sent me a package of twenty five wipes for free. Then they asked me to take a three day challenge to only clean my face with the wipes for three days, no additional water, and them tell them and also you about what I thought of the product. Why are they doing this?

Did you know that every day you clean your face without using water, you save up to 5 gallons of water from going down the drain? Neutrogena® Naturals partnered up with The Nature Conservancy to save water. Get involved and join #WipeForWater. Pledge to clean your face without using water, and instead exclusively clean with Neutrogena® Naturals Purifying Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes. For each pledge, Neutrogena® Naturals will contribute $1 to The Nature Conservancy to support water conservation, up to $50,000. It's that simple.  You can click here to pledge.

Now back to the wipes. I believe in honest opinions even if I received them for free. That being said, I honestly loved them. I was afraid of what my face might feel like on day two or three. That it wouldn't feel fresh or clean, but it did!! They have a really nice smell. They clean well. My skin was not too dry or too oily. Just right. It felt smooth and clean. I would definitely recommend them, and in fact I have.

So take the #WipeForWater challenge and try Neutrogena® Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. Help the planet at the same time take care of your face, It's a win/win situation!

Oh comes HOME!


Thanks to gofobo and Regal Theatres we got a sneak peek of the movie HOME. Such a cute movie. HOME is a DreamWorks Animation20th Century Fox production. With a cast full of stars including Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Steve Martin ans Jennifer Lopez how can you go wrong. 

Oh (voiced by Jim Parsons) is a loveable, color changing, problem causing member of the Boov, who come to Earth to flee their mortal enemy and in the process take over the planet relocating all the humans to Australia. When Oh makes yet another mistake, he finds himself on the run from his fellow Boovs and in the process befriends Tip (voiced by Rihanna) an Earth girl in search of her mom.

Full of laughs, some love and a lots of music and dancing, HOME is a very family friendly movie. It tries to show that mistakes happen and it's more about what you do about your mistake rather than the mistake itself that counts. Tip along with her cat named pig helps Oh learn what it really means to have a HOME!

HOME comes to theaters Friday, March 27th. The Novaks' think it's a must see. But beware all the singing and dancing might have you saying "Oh, no! My hands are in the air like I just do not care!"
