This Valentine’s Day is going to be an extra special one because we found out some great news that we are expecting a baby girl in July and we plan to have a romantic date night at home to celebrate!  Normally we would go out for Valentine’s Day but my husband offered to cook me a romantic meal and how can I possibly say no! However, I still want to get dolled up and make myself look pretty for our home date. Most of the days, you can find me in scrubs with very little makeup. While I am not a huge makeup person, I love wearing it on those occasions when we are going out or having a special dinner at home. For my makeup, I rely on NEUTROGENA® Cosmetics, which allow me to enhance my natural looks while improving my skin’s healthy look.


I was very lucky to receive the  HEALTHY ESSENTIALS®  kit which contained many awesome products to get me ready for Valentine’s day including NEUTROGENA Healthy Volume Mascara and MoistureSmooth Color Stick, Rembrandt Deeply White Toothpaste, Listerine, and KY Date Night to name a few. If you are not familiar with the HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® program, let me tell you some information about it:

As you prepare for a special Valentine’s Day, these HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® products and tips can help you be healthy and happy for the ones you love. 

When I received my Healthy Essentials kit, I knew it would help me prepare for my wonderful date night at home, and in turn also save money on products that I normally buy anyway. The first item I tried when I received the kit was the Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara. I am very picky when it comes to mascara for the sole reason that my eyes are my best attribute. I really like to find a mascara that plays my eyes up. I have definitely found that with this mascara! It is quickly turning into one of my favorites. It features 400% fuller clump free lashes and allows me to build my lashes from the inside out.  The Visible Volume Brush coats and builds even the smallest lashes with rich, volume-building color. No clumps, smudging or flaking! It is truly an amazing mascara!DSC_0895

Next, I tried the Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick. My lips tend to get very chapped in the winter and I can never find a great substitute. No matter how hard I try, I suffer from those horrid winter lips. Now though, the MoistureSmooth Color Stick has changed that! The NEUTROGENA® MoistureSmooth Color Sticks instantly moisturizes lips while continuously conditioning them, so they are softer and smoother in just 3 days with nothing on them. Made with fruit extracts along with mango and shea butter, the balm-like formula glides on easily, providing a sheer wash of moisturizing color that lasts for hours.


With both of these products, I can be sure to be ready for my great Valentine’s date all while knowing, I did not spend an arm or a leg! Feel free to get a printable coupon for $1 off any NEUTROGENA® Cosmetics product at

We also received other goodies in our HealthyEssentials Kits that allowed me to feel beautiful. One of my favorites is obviously Listerine. Being a dentist, Listerine is the brand I recommend professionally and personally for a fantastic mouthwash!  It will leave your breath feeling fresh and ready for that perfect kiss on Valentine’s Day! Get a printable coupon for $1 off a variety of LISTERINE® products at at

    Congratulations for having a baby! I really like Neutrogena products. I don’t wear much make up, but I do like to use more when we have special events to attend to.

    What great products! The only thing I probably wouldn’t use is the listerine, but I would love to get some moisturizing lipstick.

    What a great sounding kit – its always nice to know you are treating yourself well – thank you for the recommendation on listerine as well as I never know what’s the best mouthwash to go for :) x

    Congratulations on the baby girl that will be here before you know it! I rarely wear makeup as well, only for those special occasions. I use Neutrogena mascara – it clumps less and does not irritate my eyes.

  6. says

    I love Neutrogena products. My favorite is their skin care lotions but I really do love all of them. I will have to try their mascara.

  7. says

    Coupons on products you use are always a good thing! I have never tried Neutragena lip stick-think I will give it a try-my lips are in the worst shape they have ever been in this winter.

    First, congrats on the baby girl! Also, that is a great kit you got. I love the lip stain color! Hubby will definitely go vava boom on Valentines day when he sees you decked out with all your goodies!
