Cetaphil DermaControl Review + Giveaway

My New Year’s resolution is to take better care of my skin and a big part of that is using a lot more skin care products than I do right now. So we’ve teamed up with Canadian Beauty Bloggers and Cetaphil for their Think Zinc campaign. We’re giving away a set of Cetaphil’s DermaControl Oil Control Foam Face Wash and Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30.
Cetaphil Dermacontrol
Both these products are aimed at combination, oily or blemish-prone skin and have a Zinc Complex that absorbs oil and shine while still leaving your skin hydrated. I fall under the combination category but my skin is a lot more dry than oily in the winter so I was a little scared to try something made for much oilier skin.

Luckily, I really didn’t have to worry. The Foam Face Wash isn’t too thick a foam and it’s really gentle. I didn’t have any redness and it even got some pretty stubborn makeup off. My skin did feel a tiny bit tight after washing my face but not nearly as much as I expected. The Oil Control Moisturizer is really light and you don’t need a lot. It left my skin feeling amazingly soft and all the tightness from washing my face was gone instantly. This moisturizer also leaves a matte look to your skin so you don’t have that greasy moisturizer look.

I can’t wait to use this set in the summer when my skin is much oilier and harder to control.

Stayfree Challenge

Stayfree Challenge Box
Everyone’s seen the pad commercials with the blue liquid test. Every company uses them but I’m pretty sure once the commercial’s over you don’t think about it much. When Stayfree offered the chance to do the test ourselves my curiosity won out.
Stayfree Challenge Box Open
They provided everything. A package of Stayfree pads, two competitor pads, vials of the famous blue liquid, blotting sheets and three five pound weights.
Stayfree Challenge Step 1
The test was easy enough. Put the pads on the placement sheet.
Stayfree Challenge Step 2
Add the blue liquid and wait 30 seconds.
Stayfree Challenge Step 3
Add the blotting paper with the weights over them.Wait 5 seconds and voila! Results!
Stayfree Challenge Results
I don’t know what the pad in the middle is and I kind of wish I did because that’s pretty gross in comparison. The Stayfree and Competitor #2 who is almost definitely Always were basically neck and neck for spots. The main difference was that Stayfree kept them in the middle and Competitor #2 had them a lot more spread out.

It was pretty cool playing scientist for the day and the results were pretty surprising. Stayfree is also trying to get rid of granny panties and bring back the cute ones. Their Panty Party website is running a contest and you can also follow them on Twitter. The cutest part of the whole thing is this little video.


 

Let us know if you’re on your way to retiring your granny panties and what you think of the results of our test!
