THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED
Back-to-school is often a time young women want to start experimenting with beauty products, or if they’re already using them, they’re looking for ways to incorporate Fall trends and some tips and tricks! To help moms introduce their daughters to beauty with confidence as they head back to school P&G has enlisted COVERGIRL Make-up Pro, Veronica Chu; and Pantene Consulting Stylist, Justin German to develop tips using some of their favourite products from COVERGIRL, Pantene, Olay and Venus.
Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom/mamanP&G. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own.
1. Every great beauty look starts with a great regimen:
“Following a daily hair care regimen is the basis of great looking hair! One of the staples of this is a shampoo and conditioner like the Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner – I love this collection because it’s designed to repair hair, control moisture levels and prevent damage for a soft, smooth, moisturized feel. This makes it a fantastic option for girls experimenting with new styles and putting their hair through its paces so it looks healthy and strong.” – Justin German
“Similarly, great makeup starts with great skin. For young women in their teens or early twenties, their bodies are still growing and factors like stress and hormonal changes can cause skin to act out. I always recommend following a cleansing routine morning and night, followed by a good moisturizer. One of my favourite cleansers is the Olay Total Effects Refreshing Citrus Face Scrub – the oil free formula won’t clog pores and cleanses without over drying. For a moisturizer, apply the Olay Total Effects Featherweight Moisturizer – I like this one because it’s super light-weight and includes an SPF for added protection.” – Veronica Chu
2.Less is more:
“Playing with hair products and different hair styles is really fun, and it’s a great way to learn! But using too much product can leave hair crunchy, frizzy, flat, or oily. Start off with lighter products like detanglers or the Pantene Pro-V Stylers All-in-One Styling Balm to avoid this – the light multi-tasking formula tames frizz and flyaways while protecting from damage. As an added benefit, other styling products can be layered on top so it’s a great one to experiment and play with.” – Justin German
“When girls start asking to use makeup, think of it as a gradual transition with a very soft and natural feel. Mascara is an easy way to start experimenting – I usually suggest younger girls start with a single coat of brown mascara to give a more natural look. My favourite for beginners isCOVERGIRL LashBlast Volume with its wide, straight barrel that makes it really easy to handle. Once comfortable with LashBlast Volume, then branch out and try others in the COVERGIRL LashBlast family (Bloom, Clump Crusher or Fusion) and experiment with other pigments.” – Veronica Chu
3. Fresh and effortless is in:
“Undone, dropped out waves are everywhere and they’re so easy to create, especially if your daughter showers at night. Simply apply a leave in conditioner to the hair while it’s still damp, then braid the hair. In the morning, break down the braid and spray the roots with Pantene Root Reboot Dry Shampoo, adding volume and texture. Not only is this look on trend, but it’s a great time saver too!” – Justin German
“Dewy skin is a staple for the upcoming season. What makes this look particularly good for younger girls is that it’s so natural for them – it’s all about a fresh youthful glow that they already have! To help bring out this natural glow and even out skin tone, apply a small amount of Olay Total Effects Pore Minimizing CC Cream. I love the extremely light weight, oil-free formula because it allows for even colour while minimizing the look of pores.” – Veronica Chu
Body care is also important at this age. For those who are starting to think about shaving or already doing it regularly, the new Venus Swirl razoris designed with new proprietary FlexiBall technology featuring unique four-way movement to shave those hard-to-reach places that other razors might miss. And for a fresh clean that lasts all day, the new Fresh Outlast body washes from Olay that contain 3X more mild cleansers than before

As my teen-aged daughter is gearing back for another year at High School (her last), I want to ensure that she has all the reliable products we love: COVERGIRL, Pantene, Olay, and Venus. We recommend (for my own daughter AND for all moms with school-aged daughters) that you try all these products. My daughter loves the Pantene Pro-V Styler All-in-One Styling Balm during days of high humidity … that’s when she gets super frizzy hair! Curly or straight, this balm does it all.
