Let’s face it. As a mom, much less a very busy mom (what mom isn’t?) there isn’t a lot of time in the day to spend on you. You’re the last one that gets to take a shower, everyone uses your favorite shampoo until you find yourself using the baby shampoo that is leftover from 4 years ago, and it’s more than likely that the last time you remembered to buy a new tube of mascara was on your wedding day. Ok, maybe not that long ago, but I’m betting it has been 6 months or more for most of us.
That’s why, on an ordinary Saturday, I was ecstatic to have the UPS guy ring my doorbell and drop off a very special package – a package just for me. The kids were totally jealous, especially when I opened it to discover this beautiful VIP Beauty Kit inside.
When I opened the box I felt like a kid on Christmas! The box was beautifully designed and included all of the newest products from Olay, Pantene, and Covergirl – all in their own neat little boxes. I felt like I was reading one of my kids’ lift-the-flap books – except with special surprises inside!
The kit included Olay Regenerist, Olay Clean & Mild Makeup Remover Cloths with Aloe Vera, Covergirl Lash Blast 24 Hour Mascara, the new Covergirl Blast Flipsticks (2 blendable lip colors in one tube), Pantene Aqua Light Shampoo and Conditioner, and the Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Tone Rehab (a 2-in-1 toner serum and foundation). In other words I died and went to beauty product heaven.
Isn’t it funny how life works? 10 years ago at age 19 I was so irritated that people didn’t take me seriously, that no one realized that I was beginning my junior year of college in the fall and I used makeup to try and make myself look older. You know – back when I looked like this (that’s me on the left – aren’t French majors pretty? The good old days stuck in the language lab for HOURS):
Now that the big 3-0 is looming I use makeup to try and make myself look younger and delay the signs of aging – which is exactly what this kit was geared at helping me to do. I used the Olay Regenerist, Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Tone Rehab foundation, the 24 hour Lash Blast, and the Covergirl Blast Flipsticks and then made a little video for you to tell you all about the awesome products which are all available at Walmart – check it out!
Thanks so much P&G for the gorgeous VIP Beauty Kit, but more importantly, the chance to pamper myself. Don’t forget, all of these products are on shelves now in your local Walmart – so stop and pick up a few to try for yourself!
