Most women know you shouldn’t go to sleep without taking off your makeup, but some makeup removers just don’t moisturize and exfoliate the way you want. Pond’s Towelettes simplify your beauty regime and gently remove all makeup, plus they leave skin feeling moisturized.

As a working mom of three one thing I have very little of is time. I love how easy POND’S Towelettes make it to get my skin clean and feeling refreshed. I’m always looking for ways to Plus +Up my beauty routine and one item that helps me keep my skin in check is POND’S Wet Cleansing Towelettes. I keep a pack in my gym bag for post workout cleansing and they are perfect for my overnight bag and camping trips.  Along with on-the-go cleaning I love how great the towelettes wipe away every trace of waterproof mascara, and with no irritation to my eyes or skin. No need to rinse and my skin feels refreshed and moisturized.

Introducing Love 2 Love Fragrances

Introducing the love2love fragrance collection, with 4 different scents  perfect for Spring and Summer. Each scent is feminine, fresh and perfect for date night. And the best part, the line was created to  be affordable for everyone with everything priced under $10. But don’t let the low price fool you these are really great fragrances. The Love2Love Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa scent was featured in both  Redbook and the Oprah Magazine as a must have scent for Spring.

I have been enjoying this line the last two weeks switching between scents. The fragrances are long wearing and really great scents I am still a little shocked how affordable they are.  My two favorites are the Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa and the Orange Blossom + White Musk. I love how bright and fresh it scent is without being overpowering. The bottles are pretty enough to display and with the great price point you can afford to grab more than one scent.

Be sure to check them out, any of these would make a great gift for Mom for Mothers Day. And you can even grab a  free sample on their website.
