CONTEST: Top dollar skin care collection!

That last contest went so well that, fuck it, let’s have another. Moving away from clothes, we’re real excited to offer our readers a chance at grabbing the premium skin care collection.

The Phytoceutical (“Phyto-C”) Skin Care Collection consists of three products. The first is the Sky Blue Liquid Moisturizer, which provides intense hydration and works to diminish fine wrinkles and lines. The second is a Moisturizing Cream that contains Vitamin B5, Glycerin, and botanical extracts. Finally, you also get an Eye Firming Cream which provides extraordinary antioxidant protection while also reducing and preventing premature signs of aging of eye areas. This sucker, all three products together, is priced at $191.00 retail – and you have a chance to get it on the gratis!

And now the question on everyone’s mind: what do I gotta do to get the goods? Well it’s no sweat, gents: Post a comment to this post describing your daily morning bathroom ritual. Is it as compulsive as Patrick Bateman’s? Or is more like what The Dude probably does? Whatever the nature of your routine, just please remember to include your email address along with your submission. We’ll pick a qualifying submission at random.

The deadline’s next Monday (February 22, 2010) at 6 p.m. EST. So ladies and gents, expose yourself already (metaphorically speaking) and click the Comment link below! And don’t forget to include your email address!

    We've taken aspects of a UGG ultra and made
    ugg bailey button more feminine by slimming the silhouette.
    The ugg bomber combines function and style,
    using rich leather and suede uppers and featuring a molded rubber outsole giving you the ultimate in durability and comfort for the Fall season.

    9. Spray Olive oil for the head (my head is shaved..scalp can get chappy, who knew!!) 10. A little Dior Homme to go and it's on to warddrobe! It all sounds extensive and high maintenence but really once you streamline and get into a routine it's no more than 30 minutes and I look like a glowing cherub- taking care of my skin in the winter is really important if I want gorgeous skin for the summer!

  38. singermagic1 says:

    I work at home, so after my cats wake me up, I stumble out to the kitchen, feed them, get coffee, stumble to the bathroom and splash water on my face, run a brush through the tangles in my bed head. All this is done one handed, the other is holding the coffee cup. Stumble out of the bathroom to my laptop and several more cups of coffee. No more bathroom until afternoon when I am awake enough to attempt makeup and a more advance routine

    Mine's pretty easy – I do a scalp massage in the shower and rinse my hair (no shampoo – it dries out my curls), wash my face with an all-natural rose geranium face soap, condition and comb through my hair in the shower. Then I moisturize my face and body and get dressed, brush teeth and do my makeup.

    I love that you mentioned Patrick Bateman's ritual! I just watched American Psycho last week! For my ritual, considering I am in college and wake up ten minutes before I have to catch the bus to campus, my morning routine consists of ..brushing hair, washing face with clearasil pads, brush teeth, brush hair again, put on concealer where needed, get dressed. :)

  62. Kimberly says:

    It's shorter now since I'm out of work, but usually it would be brush teeth, wash face & moisturize, apply foundation, blush, lip stick, eye shadow, and then mascara, and then flat iron my hair. It probably takes less than 15 minutes for everything.

  84. Cowlady124 says:

    Then I always eat breakfast.
    Depending on what day it is, since I work part-time at home I would:
    check email, do the work I find from the e-mails, still in my pajamas, great, right! When I am finished working I then shower, brush and floss, moisturize then dress and fix my hair. No makeup unless I have to go out, I try to get away with no makeup as much as possible. I think that is better for the skin, and I need all the help I can get!
    If I don't plan on having a commitment from work I would skip the checking email part until later in the day.
