Ponds Towelettes Review and Giveaway!


Woohoo, what fun! As a cool perk of blogging, I was given a 30-day supply of Ponds Towelettes in Original Clean formula to review! If you want to read about the ingredients and why these work the way they do, click here...and you can also get a $1.50 off coupon!

It was suggested that I keep the towelettes in my gym bag and use them to clean my face after I workout. Well, as my car is my gym bag, that's where the towelettes went, along with my weight gloves and sweatband (yes, I'm rocking the Olivia Newton-John look, circa 1982...very fashionable).

Now, normally I workout and then go home to shower, except sometimes I take a detour to the grocery store or Target - hey, it's 9 am and yes I look like a sweaty mess, but these stores are right on the way home and sometimes it's just easier to get those errands out of the way early! I have to say that it was really handy to have the little packet of the Pond's Towelettes in my car, where I could grab one and quickly freshen up by wiping my face (and hands) clean. They have a very light fragrance...it was just enough to notice, but not strong enough to bother me like a lot of other skincare products scents do - what can I say, I'm sensitive!

Anyway, I started using them, and I have to say that I like them. It's been a few weeks and I've gotten into the habit of cleaning my face right after I workout, which I'm sure my skin is thanking me for. Better than driving home with the sweat drying on my face, then fixing my protein shake, reading the newspaper (and sometimes a few blogs) before finally jumping into the shower...um, I'm sure you are all interested in my morning routine, right? Not so much? Well, OK then...let's jump to the fun part - the giveaway!

I have a 30-day supply of Pond's Towelettes to give to one lucky reader, and all you have to do to enter is leave me a comment telling me what your middle name is. What can I say - I'm curious how many Ann's and Diane's there are among us (I'm thinking a lot)! U.S. residents only; contest ends Thursday night at 10 pm (CDT); winner will be randomly selected and announced on Friday (interwebs-willing). Good luck!

  2. I'm a Marie too.

    When I do the 3-Day, I use those wipes and when I was on the crew, we kept them in a cooler full of ice. I can't tell you how even more amazing those things are when they are ice cold! They should sponsor the 3-Day and have coolers full at ever rest stop for the walkers.

    Hope you have a great week!!

  3. I'm one of the many, many Marie's out there.

    I love all those pre-moistened facial wipes. I take them on vacation instead of my regular cleanser. No worries about leaking that way.

  10. Shelley, I'm a 30 year old student who desperately needs to lose weight and exercise and I have to tell you that your blog speaks to me the most out of all the ones I've read on the interwebs! I love it!

  11. I never equated Pond's with clean, since my experience with it was the thick cold cream my grandma used to smear on my face as a kid. I just assumed those towelettes would be greasy.

    Now I'm intrigued.

    And I don't think you're nearly as bad as other people wandering around the aisles in the morning. Take my husband for example....

    And my middle name is Jean.

  28. So many Maries.
    POD Marie.
    That's lovely.
    Did you commit to using them for the whole 30 days? This seems like something we don't really need that they are trying to make us need.
    Like makeup!

  31. My middle name is Elizabeth.

    The Pond's Towelettes sound really convenient - I do the same reading thing for a while after my workouts, and I'm sure my skin would agree with yours that cleaner faster is better ;)
