Giveaways, SponsoredGiveaway: Proactiv+ 3-Step Skincare System

proactiv

Honestly, which teenager did not swear by Proactiv? That line totally got me through college and the worst of my acne-ridden years.

Luckily, these days, mention the word ‘acne’ and I’ll be more likely to think of my favorite clothing line than a serious skin condition, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still suffer from the occasional blemish (and even worse, long-term skin discoloration and marks from those pesky flare-ups). Luckily, Proactiv has evolved with me and the new line of Proactiv+ is designed to address the slew of adult skin concerns I now face: dry skin (check), oily skin (check. Yes I suffer from dry skin and oily skin at the same time), lack of clarity (check), redness (check), prominent pores (check, check, check, check…)

The new lineup contains the same easy 1-2-3 process as my teenage favorite: a  Skin Smoothing Exfoliator, an all-in-one cleanser and scrub, the Pore Targeting Treatment, an acne-bacteria killing serum for those occasional pimples, and a daily Complexion Perfecting Hydrator, which moisturizes, brightens, and mattifies.

For the next four weeks, I’ll be test driving all these products and more from the Proactiv+ line, with the hope of being able to rock that #nomakeup and #nofilter hashtag on all my summer selfies.

Follow along on my social media channels: @carolyn_hsu, @tdailyobsession as I try these new products!

Want to win a set to try yourself? It’s easy! You can win one of two ways:

Good luck! Winner will be announced in 4 weeks.

    Giveaways, SponsoredTDO Sponsored Giveway: The New Talbots

    Some of you may remember a few weeks ago, we posted a mysterious campaign by Red Chair Confessionals for a mysterious brand.

    As it turns out, the brand behind the mystery is none other than Talbots! It’s true, the same Talbots that had completely fallen off my radar since the day I convinced my mom to trade in her dowdy suits for something more fashionable.  Sure enough, a quick search shows that Talbot’s isn’t even mentioned on our site…not even one time!

    So when I found out that Talbots had sponsored our post that day, I was curious and hit up their website. I learned that they had recently tried to rebrand as a shopping destination for the younger crowd, so I headed over to see how successfully they were doing this. Verdict? READ MORE

    Accessories, Cheap & Chic, Giveaways, JewelryFor Lisa, By Stella

    I’ve raved about MadeByStella jewelry before, back when designer Stella Hwang was selling her lovely, gorgeous baubles on Etsy. Everything is handmade – yet remains affordable and well under $50 per piece. Stella recently expanded her site and now is presenting her jewelry off Etsy, on madebystella.com. The new site is super cute, easy to navigate, and my eyes were instantly drawn to the Lisa Necklace, pictured above. Named after the designer’s sister, it’s simple yet sophisticated, with a bit of an asymmetric edge. I love the long, layered chains and the versatility of the design. You can dress up or down and it’ll still complement your look and be pretty.

    To celebrate Stella’s new website, we’ll be giving away the Lisa Necklace to one lucky reader! To enter, all you have to do is visit madebystella.com, browse around the collection, and let us know your favorite piece here as a comment. We’ll pick a winner at random in exactly a week. In the meantime, you can get 15% off any purchase there until 6/30/09 by entering the code daily15. Good luck and happy shopping!

    Update: And the winner is… comment #11, Lola! Please check your email for more details and congrats! Thanks everyone for entering.

    Giveaways, HairAxe and a Movie

    Ahh Sundays…usually my day for lounging around, catching a good flick and spending a really long time washing my hair. I have about every shampoo and product known to mankind stocked up in my beauty closet, so I always make my roommates and friends get their goods from me. But when their boyfriends come over, I can’t ever get them to help me test out product because floral scented, sulfate-free, extra glossy shampoo for curly hair just isn’t going to cut it for them. Well now here’s some good news – both for the girl whose tired of her man using up her Bumble and bumble gel and for the guy who really isn’t interested in his girlfriend’s caviar conditioner. AXE (of the body spray) how has hair product that specifically cater to guys and what they want- fast, efficient haircare that helps them shower, style and get on with their day. You can check out the line at Axe Hair Crisis Relief and get the products at Walgreens.

    Or…you can go to their Facebook page, tell them what kind of shampoo (or help) your man needs and Axe will send you some free stuff.  Then, simply give them feedback on how it worked out and they’ll send you a $25 gift certificate to AMC Theaters. It’s win win! That is, unless you force him to go see Ghosts of Girlfriends Past with you.

    Make sure to tell  the Facebook AXE people that you found out via TDO (and link to this post) in order to guarantee your product and gift (while supplies last)!

    Bath & Body, Beauty, Giveaways, SkincareJohnson’s Body Care for a Cause

    A week ago, I hosted a Johnson’s Body Care Cause Party at my apartment with a group of great girl friends – all to benefit Minds Matter of Chicago, a mentoring organization that I volunteer for. Johnson’s made a donation to Minds Matter so I could encourage my friends to do the same, all while enjoying the newest goodies from the Body Care line. We had so much fun mixing champagne cocktails and it was great to raise money for the charity!

    We also did some testing out of the new Be Radiant Cocoa & Shea Butter Lotion, which smells delicious, among other products. We all pretty much grew up using the Johnson’s Baby line, and it’s great that J&J has formulated the Body Care products to be gentle, soften women’s skin, and stay affordable now that we’re all grown up. My new favorite is the 24 Hour Moisturizer, which smells good, is super creamy, and actually moisturizes for hours like it says.iconicon

    My girl friends loved going home with gift bags full of Johnson’s Body Care products, and we’re happy to be able to share one with one lucky reader as well. Leave a comment and we’ll pick a winner tomorrow night! Visit johnsonsbodycare.com for a round-up of all the great products available.

    Update: The winner, chosen randomly, is Kristina A. (comment #1)! Please check your email for more information. Thanks to everyone for participating.
