How to [Make Your Face] Look Good Naked

Updated January 12: We have a winner! Liza at Liza’s Eyeview won the drawing. Thanks to everyone who entered and be sure to visit on Fridays this month and into February for more weekly giveaways.

I’m very excited to kick off the Snowy Days Giveaways with a great new, and affordable, skincare product from RoC.

I am now completely sold on the benefits of microdermabrasion, which may or may not be a fancy skincare term for exfoliation, so much so that I must shout it from the Internet rooftops!


My hair salon offers microdermabrasion treatments, but at several hundred dollars a package, they are not exactly on my list of “must dos.” We’re still getting over the year and a half of double daycare expenses. Cough. Plus I just don’t spend a lot of money on skincare or spa treatments, except for the occasional massage. I turn 39 in August and those high school days spent on my dad’s post-divorce bachelor houseboat and those post-college early 1990s weekends spent floating in the pool and listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers at my brother’s bachelor pad slash pool house are catching up with my skin.

My fairy blogmother sent me RoC Skincare’s Daily Microdermabrasion Cleansing Discs and out of all of the skincare products I have reviewed on my blog, this has given me the fastest and most noticeable results. At around $9.99 for a container, it’s also quite affordable on my diaper/daycare budget. I could immediately tell a difference in the texture of my skin after just one night. I’ve now used the entire container and my skin is considerably softer and smoother looking. Dare I say it’s as smooth as a baby’s bottom, which I have seen many of over the past five years? Even Miss C commented on how soft my face was the other day and for her to notice anything that isn’t stamped with a Disney Princess or Barbie logo these days is nothing short of a miracle.

For an entry in the drawing for a container of RoC’s new Daily Microdermabrasion Cleansing Discs, just leave a comment. To receive two entries, leave a comment on this post and link to this post from your blog. I’ll select a winner at random from all the qualifying comments left by midnight CST next Friday, January 11. You don’t need a blog or website to enter, but you do need to leave a valid e-mail address so that I can contact you, should you win.

Good luck and be sure to stop by next Friday for a chance to win a hip outdoor portable playmat in a fun retro print from

Speaking of How to Look Good Naked, is anyone planning on watching it tonight? I know my husband would rather watch High School Musical in 3-D, so I’ll probably Tivo it.

p.s. If you would link to post the cute pink snowman blog button, e-mail me and I’ll send you the code. Thanks!

    Oooh! That sounds lovely. My month older than you skin could use some love too! It is dreary today, isn’t it?

  2. Richie Ann says:

    We could all use a little pick me up right? Even if I don’t win I think I’ll buy some.

  3. Pattie says:

    Hmmm….could these microderm pads make me look 20 again? *LOL* This 40 year old skin just isn’t doing it for me…

    I could use all the help I can get 😉

    If we could only go back and tell our younger selves that the sun is not good! But I look so much better with a tan, just not these yucky wrinkles.

  5. Bluegrass Mama says:

    Since I’m ten years (okay, 11) ahead of you, I may have to try some of these. Free ones would be good, so I think I’ll go do the linky thing and double my chances!

    Okay, now those sound too cool! I am a microdermabrasion fan but they’re usually so expensive that it’s out of my diapers and preschool budget.
    I’ll hope that I win these, but if not… I think I can swing $9.99!
    Thanks Jamie!!!

    Commenting! And if you hear of something that will actually make me look good naked, I’d be interested in that, too. And don’t tell me diet and exercise, I don’t need to hear about that crap.

    It’s so good to be “back” after my holiday break. The kids start school this coming Monday and mom is ready for some “mom” time again! LOL It’s so fun to read your updates. We have to talk sometime about the budget and beauty stuff. I’ve found several new tips that seem to be making their mark!

    I have not looked for them yet in the stores but they should be out this month (they were scheduled to be out this month.)

    Jaime, I do not know how to make a button linkable to your side. I have it up in my sidebar. Can your computer wiz hubby make the button linkable to your blog, to this post? I think that will bring more people to this contest.

    On second thoughts, maybe I should not announce it too much because I NEED this ;). Please count me in.
