Luminous + Giveaway




(All Pond's Luminous Products c/o One2One Network)

You know those moments when you have that extra boost of confidence? Maybe it's those extra high heels, someone you admire following your instagram, getting extra praise at work - the list could go on and on. For me, it's two things - a great hair day and a great skin day. In the last year I have become an avid believer in the power of Pond's. I started using their Dry Skin Cream in the winter of last year and literally haven't stopped. Even into the spring and summer months, I found that the Pond's cream kept my face completely hydrated and moisturized. So you can imagine my excitement when One2One Network (thanks, Maryellen!)
contacted me about teaming up to promote Pond's latest line of products, Luminous.  

I've never really been one to hop around from product to product - when I find something I love I stick to it - but I had high hopes considering I love my moisturizer so much. I received my package last week and couldn't wait to test out the products. Below is my review of the Pond's Luminous products.


I love that this day lotion has SPF 15 in it. It feels so light going on your skin and I've found it's a great primer for your foundation! I just wish it came in a bigger tube ;)

I've never used a cream cleanser before. I always thought that in order to get my face really clean I needed something that foams. Not true. This cleanser is so gentle and comes off incredibly smooth when you rinse your face. Even after I rinsed my face it felt like there was an extra layer of moisture - such a good feeling. And it takes off my eye makeup better than anything I've used before.

I had been on the search for an amazing exfoliating cleanser for quite some time. Everything I tried was too gritty, too rough, or just didn't work. This is the perfect combination of the lightness of the cream cleanser and the extra oomph that you want from an exfoliator. (No surprise it made it on Allure's Best of Beauty list!)

Confession: I had never used towlettes before these. Now I'm hooked. These are perfect to throw in your gym bag, beach tote, or purse to have on hand. They bring eye makeup off like a dream and have a soft texture that doesn't make you feel like you're scrubbing your skin.

You need to get your hands on the Pond's Luminous line asap! If you're on the search for amazing (affordable) skin care, this is it. Did I mention all the products smell incredible? The mission of the line is to brighten dull skin, and what better time to be thinking about that than spring?!

Lucky you, One2One is offering the entire line of Luminous products to one of my readers! Enter in the widget below and I'll announce the winner next Wednesday!


Pond's is partnering with Molly Sims this month to help women experience the "luminous effect" that comes with having great skin. Together they have launched the "Pond's 30 Day Luminous Photo Challenge" - a photo sweepstakes featuring daily challenges to inspire women to share photos of their happiest, most radiant moments. You can enter via the Pond's facebook or via twitter and instagram using the hashtag #LuminousEffect.

(Disclosure: This post and giveaway are sponsored by One2One network. I was compensated for participating and received the line of Luminous products. However, all opinions and comments are my own. I would never recommend products I don't/wouldn't use myself to you wonderful readers. I promise.)

Running makes me luminous! I love to get out there and sweat out the frustrations of the day! Also, I would be super excited to win these Pond's products, because as I get older, I can tell that my skin needs more attention!

What makes me feel luminous? Hmmm.... I'd say having a bit of a tan (even if it's from a bottle), being well moisturized... and keeping a positive attitude! :)

Thanks for the giveaway Julie!!
