Neutrogena mom & daughter beauty rituals + giveaway

The fondest memories  I have of my mom don’t just appear when I will them, they instead make themselves known when I witness something so simple as a mom and daughter shopping together, or catching a whiff of a fragrance she  wore, or when I try my hardest not to stare at a woman that reminds me of her. I still see products in the store that were her favorites, Neutrogena having been around since the 1970s was one of our household beauty staples. Sharing some of my fondest memories of her in partnership with Neutrogena is like weaving together a story of a remembered friendship that lasted many long loyal years.

Memories are everywhere, and having surpassed the difficult part of the grief process, I can now smile when I see these tangible tidbits of everyday life that are evidence that she was once a tangible part of my life now reappearing as beautiful memories.

My mother was a stickler for beauty rituals and Sunday evenings for as long as I can remember she would put a towel over her head and hold her face over a pot of steaming water for her DIY facials. She washed her face daily with a clear Neutrogena face bar.

I remember those bars of soap. They would sit on the sink, brown and clear.The suds would dry on the top leaving a thin white layer and I knew better than to wash my hands with that soap.

Fast forward many years later and I have beauty rituals I’m sure my Addison will always carry with her.  I shared with y’all my non negotiable for self care this year is keeping my nails done, and my Addi is following right in my footsteps. Whether she chooses to make a mess of her fingers on her own, have me do them or ask anyone that visits our home that has a steady hand , those little nails stay done!

Neutrogena Rainbath

 

As a busy mom, self care is a must and outside of keeping my nails done I love spending my evenings outside tending to my plants. With temperatures well into the 70s in the evenings, I’m sure I don’t have to tell you when I come in I am sweaty, itchy and to put it as blunt as possible nasty and dirty! Like do not pass go, go straight to the shower sweaty!

    I like to wash my face with Burt’s bees cleanser in the morning and night. I also moisturize my face with ceraVe moisturizer! I try and do a mask once a week. I also use the Neutrogena cleanser once I remove the mask from my face. I am in the process of finding a great toner to use for my face.

    I love Rainbath! It’s a staple here. I love the fresh clean scent of the copper bottle. You can use it to shave too and I think it leaves a nice smooth finish.

    I love my dove body wash and soap products! I just recently started using the neutrogena body oil which feels and smells heavenly! I’d love to give these products a try!

    Drinking lots of water and eating plenty of fruits and veggies keeps my skin clear. I’m not great at using a consistent product, but drinking water and eating right helps my skin out a lot.

    After I wash my face, I rinse it with cold water to shrink my pores.

    I always use a daily moisturizer with SPF after I cleanse my face in the morning. At night I do the same thing, only I use a night time moisturizer. Trust me, it works wonders.

    I use an exfoliator twice a week to shrink my pores (Dr. Brenners). I also wash daily with Young Living Valor soap. My mama washed her face her entire life with Ivory or Dove and doesn’t wear a stitch of makeup and she has beautiful skin!

    Do not wash your face with soap, only facial cleansers.

    Well for me eliminating sodas helped clear up my skin and not eating a lot of fried food
