The one thing about being a P&G Mom is that I was already using so many of their brands prior to signing up and I continue to love many many of their products. Mothers tend to pass down their preferences to their children, and this seems to be happening in a big way with my kids. Especially the girls. My oldest daughter is now 10 and starting to take a big interest in skincare and makeup. When Katy Perry became connected to Covergirl, she was MOST impressed and thoroughly enjoyed meeting her as part of the #INSTAGLAM campaign.
She spent a LOT of time preparing her look and her makeup for the big night. Makeup lessons blended into skincare lessons. We don’t want ‘painted’ pillowcases when someone doesn’t know about WASHING the makeup off when done. Olay’s Fresh Effects are a great line of makeup removal and skincare for new burgeoning tween skin. Caity has lovely young skin but is developing oily patches under her lip on her chin and so we are working out the gentlest products to help take care of that and the evils of blackheads.
Proctor & Gamble don’t forget the guys either. My son is now hoping to be the next spokesman for Old Spice. I am not kidding. He takes his Old Spice collection VERY seriously. Enough so that for his ‘Meet the Seniors’ school project, part of his display about ‘Adam’ was his lineup of Old Spice.
I remember when his teacher last year introduced the boys to the concept of odor control. Needless to say his display caused much hilarity. But now he notices that people will compliment him when he smells nice. His Old Spice obsession also includes the body washes and shampoos.
As a stout young tween, getting into the habit of staying fresh and clean is great in my books and if Old Spice encourages these habits, I am a happy mom.
Caity is now hoping to do more video reviews about her fave products. This is her first one about her experience with Covergirl and Olay.
