Hi.

Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind.

OXY Clear It Up Sweepstakes*

OXY Clear Skin, No Problem
OXY Clear Skin, No Problem

There are certain scents that can instantly transport me back to a certain place and time, and one of those is the smell of Oxy medicated acne pads. They drop me right back into senior high when bad skin started becoming an issue for me. Over the years, I have revisted Oxy products when I go through rough periods with my skin -- affordable, effective, and easy to use, their products have often taken up space on my bathroom shelf. The folks at OXY kindly sent me a selection of products, including their Medicated Deep Cleaning Acne Pads, Deep Pore Daily Facial Cleanser, and their Acne Vanishing Treatment Lotion. After using them exclusively for a couple weeks, I can easily say my skin looks better than it has in a few months. With a son newly into the "double digits" and approaching his teen years like a speeding bullet, it's reassuring to know that OXY works as well as it ever did when I was young.

Right now, OXY is celebrating clear skin with their Clear It Up Sweepstakes. There are many prizes to be won, including 3 iPads and weekly prizes of $50 -- all you need to do is collect and enter the PINs on specially marked products. As part of this promotion, I have a PIN to share with you, too! My unique PIN is: 0550bwk6.

Hope on over to OXY's Facebook page and check out the fun: http://www.facebook.com/oxycanada. There are other PIN codes to be found by reading their timeline, looking for posts like mine!
