What makes me feel luminous is a good nights sleep. That is totally something you take for granted before you have kids. Once in a blue moon my kids will stay over night at their grandparents and the type of sleep I get is on a whole other level. It's an actual deep sleep. On a more material note, shopping in general also makes me feel luminous. Nothing can lift the spirits and make you glow more than finding an awesome handbag on sale or finding your perfect red lip.
Pond's has this new line of skincare to aid in luminosity, aptly named Pond's Luminous Clean.
What POND'S says about their new Luminous Clean Line:
POND’S® Luminous Line keeps skin looking bright and luminous all day. The line includes a Wet Cleansing Towelette, moisturizer and collection of cleansers that brighten dull skin. The Towelettes are enriched with moisturizing ingredients and soft white Kaolin clay known to act like a magnet, to gently draw out dirt, makeup and deep-dwelling impurities leaving skin bright and luminous. The latest addition to the POND’S® Luminous Line, POND’S® Luminous Moisture™ Day Lotion with SPF 15 is enriched with illuminating minerals. The weightless SPF 15 formula contains UVA and UVB sun protection against skin-damaging rays. The complete Luminous Line is available at mass retailers, select drugstores and supermarkets nationwide for a suggested retail price of $4.99 - $5.79.
The Pond's Luminous Moisture Day Lotion contains SPF 15 but it's not greasy at all, a very little will go a long way. It has a lovely rose scent that isn't over-powering and didn't make my sensitive skin react.
The Pond's Luminous Clean Cream Cleanser is gentle enough for daily use to purify the skin of dirt and any makeup. This product also helped in brightening my dull skin that I seem to be plagued with in the winter months!
I love that this line includes not only a regular cleanser, but also an exfoliating cleanser. My skin is rather sensitive, so I couldn't use an exfoliating cleanser everyday. However, I think it's absolutely necessary one or two times a week, depending on what your skin can handle. The Pond's Luminous Clean Exfoliating Cleanser is just gentle enough that I can actually use it every day if I wanted, which is helpful in renewing skin radiance. I err on the side of caution, though, so I used it every other day for the purposes of review.
My absolute favorite product from this line is the Pond's Luminous Clean Wet Cleansing Towelettes. These are so perfect for when you're feeling over-tired, ridiculously lazy or less than luminous. The towels are textured, but still soft. They are nice and thick so you don't have to worry about them tearing while you're wiping your makeup off. 30 come in a pack.
So, what about the giveaway? How about giveaways! PLURAL! The first one is taking place directly on the POND'S Facebook Page and they're partnering with Molly Sims to help women look luminous!
