pixel Contest! Win a set of Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Stress Control Products and the Book Confidence is Queen the Four Keys to Ultimate Beauty Through Positive Thinking


  1. I would like to read this book because I haven’t gotten to read for pleasure in so long dueto being in grad school! Reading has always been one of my favorite hobbies because it’s a great stress buster!


    I would like to try Neutrogena oil free acne products because I am currently using Proactiv and would like to try something more affordable and easier to get.

  3. I would LOVE to win this giveaway! I’m going to college in a couple of weeks and I think that reading this book would be an awesome way to jumpstart my college life! Also, having great skin in the beginning wouldn’t hurt either. :) Thanks for making this giveaway available, girl, I love your blog!

  4. Neutrogena makes some very nice products. This will be a nice gift. They rank up there as one of the top acne treatment companies.

  5. School just started and it’s my junior year, so STRESS! Add in test taking stress, college stress, parental stress, peer stress and you get a bundle of stress. So I think this product is much needed.

  6. I love all of neutrogena’s products and one of my friends use the acne stress control stuff and her skin is always clear!

    i just started high school doing the IB program and a lot have things have changed!

    i would love to having this just in case!

  7. I would love to win this contest. I just started high school, and Ive felt very shy and uncomfortable since it seems like my skin has been at war with me lately. I’m normally very outgoing but I feel like since Ive got some imperfections Ive lost all confidence.

  8. Oh, the reasons! I’m a sophomore in college with a (future) mother in law who verbally attacks me every chance she gets. I’ve never broken out this bad in my life… Even when I was 13!!! I can’t afford my books, let alone buy any new products, but I’ve always had a soft spot for Neutrogena (or anything that might control my oily skin).

  9. I would love to read Confidence is Queen-the Four Keys to Ultimate Beauty Through Positive Thinking for a few good reasons.

    1. I am getting ready for a big court case with my Ex Husband and know so could use all I can get when it comes to positive thinking.

    2. I need to loose some wieght so started Jenny Craig a few months back. Well I have seem to fall in a slump and need a little pick me up

    So this seem to be the perfect book for me.

    As for the set of Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Products my 14 year old son just started High School we have tried so many products for his face nothing really seems to work to well. We have not had a chance to try the set of Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Products.

  10. I had no idea how I got acne since I had smooth skin before and after much research, I’ve read great reviews about Neutrogena’s products and would like to try out Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control.

  11. KimmyDarling says:

    I would love to try these Neutrogena products. I really like the sound of Microclear boosting the delivery of Salicylic Acid, because that’s all my skin responds to, acne remedy-wise. I bet anything that will help the Salicylic Acid do its thing better would surely benefit my skin. Thanks for this contest– I’d love the opportunity to try it out!

  12. Beth Bursley says:

    I am interested in trying the Neutrogeno oil-free line because first, Neutrogeno is very careful about their ingredients and I have never been disappointed with one of their products. I have very oily skin, so oil free is good for me, I have been having break outs but been very sick lately so have not been able to see a dermatolgist along with all my other doctors. Would love to be able to try this first.

  13. I’d like to win the products because I have adult onset acne and I’m not sure what to use. As for the book, I’m always interested in applying another person’s tips to my life.

  14. Laddie Hendricks says:


    I am one who’s still learning how to embrace my beauty fully so this book would be a big help to me. I love Neutrogena, I’ve been a user ever since I can remember. Their products are really effective, especially the oil and acne-control lines. It would be nice to have new loots because I don’t buy much products these days, I mostly buy for my newborn son now.

  15. Gaye McGill says:

    I’d love to win this for my 16 year old granddaughter. She’s always been somewhat quiet and shy, but high school, less than supportive “friends”, and acne are really stressing her out. She’s a reader and I’m sure she’d trust Susie Castillo’s take on how to work on thinking positively.

  16. I will leave you both! How you like that! ;) I need some positive thinking! I am trying for a new career path at 30 and I also need some acne help EEK! 30 and this adult acne BLOWS! I have seen a derm but they still pop up and I think it is stress, so maybe this would be my solution? anyway if it will put me closer to looking like Susie, COUNT ME IN!

    really great contest!! thanks so much! cheers!

  17. Kandice Trammell says:

    I would love to win both the book and the Neutrogena products because I am a single mom who is suffering from major stress and could use some fab products and a book about thinking positively!

  18. I’d like to win this book for my daughter to give her some tips on self-confidence,she also has problems with acne so the Neutrogena products would be great to try.

  19. I know a girl that’s actually a close friend of mine that’s so self consious about her face and body because it has so much acne. I’ve tried to help her, stay by her side every time but she’s starting to close up on herself. I feel that if she just read this book and tried the Neutrogena skin care products, then maybe she would open up and start hanging out and being more social. These young years of ours are important and I really want her to enjoy these last few years before our adult life starts! If I can’t enjoy it with her, then it’s not fun for me…

  20. This books sounds quite interesting – positive thinking, positive self-talk, anything along those lines is definitely supposed to be able to help get you into a better frame of mind. I am curious to read how she ties it to beauty. Also, I have always been a Neutrogena fan, but I have never tried any of those products, so I am curious!

  21. I would to try the Neutrogena toner, because a) I have tried the 3-in-1 treatment and though I haven’t been using is that long, I love the way it feels going on and it seems to be helping, and b) I am frustrated with toners that are nothing more than glorified rubbing alcohol, and want to try something new but afraid of buying something just to be disappointed.

  22. Mary Jenkins says:

    I’d love the book! Never been very confident. I think it’s high time I became more confident.

  23. At this point, winning this contest would make me one of the happiest girls in the world. And I’m not necessarily being sarcastic. I’m currently a second year premedical student whose life typically involves studying, working and lots of starbucks. Although school just started, it’s not going to be any surprise that I will most definitely be stressed out as soon as my first midterm comes around (which is in a couple of weeks). I’ve never used very many neutrogena products, however I am still on a search for a good beauty remedy that would tame down my stressed out skin. As for the book, well to be honest, I think I’d be the perfect read on my off-studying nights. I can’t stand studying 24/7, otherwise my brain would explode, so I leisurely read books that have nothign to do with science on the side. Seeing that this book is all about motivation, I would love to have an extra boost of inspiration that’ll help aid me with my dreams of finally becoming a pediatrician. And besides, what young adult doesn’t want some extra motivational guidance in their life?

    So I hope my super long rant makes sense somehow. lol. Have an amazing day and thank you for hosting this contest =)

  24. Anita Yancey says:

    I would love to read this book because I need lots of help in the beauty department. My hair and skin are a mess.

  25. Kat Charcos says:

    I’m a stressed law student, and sometimes i forget that I am a woman first, before a slave of the study of the law.

    So this book would really do me good, i know that i need to instill some self-loving, and Susie’s book would be the first step.

    I also want to try this line of Neutrogena products! I have very sensitive skin (due to stress), so i’m always on the lookout for gentle skin solutions.

  26. sally wess says:

    love your site! i have been wanting to try this line, please enter me and….
    thank you for the opportunity to win.

  27. What a fabulous giveaway and I would love to read this book.

    Many thanks!

  28. Susie book has an intersting title and I’m curious about what she says.

  29. Vicki Wurgler says:

    I have never tried Neutrogena stress control products, but i like that they help in fighting breakouts

  30. I’m a stressed out health sciences student and would love to try out this product and see if it’ll help me with my acne prone skin. THe book sounds interesting because it sounds like the advice she offers is beneficial and can help improve lives through positive thinking.

  31. First of all, I use nothing but Neutrogena products. I love it. Secondly, I am a college student who just received a final warning about maintaining a 3.0 GPA to keep a scholarship while working a 30+ hour work week. Without the scholarship, I can’t afford college. My stress level has never been higher, and my skin shows it. My boyfriend is moving to another state within months and with all my other friends in different states for schools, I feel alone and would definitely need the confidence boost this book can teach me. The fact that this book offers tips on positive thinking is crucial for me, because I have no idea how to deal with work and school without my boyfriend or my friends.

  32. I would like to try using the Neutrogena products, because I have recently developed mixed complexion. I used to have very dry skin and now, on top of that, I have an oily/problem t-zone.
    So, I’m very interested in what Neutrogena would have to offer. I’ve tried a few other brands, and so far, nothing has helped…

  33. Patricia Hill says:

    This would be for my daughter who has real trouble with her skin. It is especially bad when she is stressed.

  34. I’d like to give this to my son who is just starting to have issues with acne.

  35. I know that true beauty should come from within, and that a healthy attitude will definitely achieve that. I am always looking to learn more about this approach and I think this book would help :)

  36. Valerie Mitchell says:

    Great giveaway – the scrub sounds like it would be perfect for my son!

  37. Hello and thank you for the opportunity to win this great prize package! I would like to try Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment because since the birth of my son, my skin has gone crazy. Pre-baby, no acne or greasy skin – post baby (it started while I was pregnant), oily T-zone and break outs (aren’t I too old for those? lol). I would like to try this because it is light and water based and at the same time absorbs excess surface oil – perfect!

  38. This book looks fabulous, & the products are some of the best on the market, personally I think they are better than a lot of the higher end brands.

  39. Ashleigh M. says:

    I would really like to read this book because I feel like I could learn from it! I mean, who couldn’t?! And it helps that I love to read books in my spare time.

    I would also love to try the Neutrogena products because for a while now my skin has been a mess, and I have yet to try Neutrogena, so this would be a great chance for me! I have tried it all: ProActiv, Clear Pores, Acne Free, etc. If this could help, I’d be so grateful.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  40. Stephanie C says:

    I would love to win this giveaway for several reasons.
    First, reading a book for pleasure would be a welcome change from reading for school or work.
    Second, hearing someone else’s inspiring stories would help when inspiration starts running low here.
    Third, I have recently started breaking out, like I haven’t since junior high school, and am in the market for a new product.
    And last, Neutrogena makes good skin care, and it may be worth checking this line out.

    Thanks for the chance to win!!

  41. I’d like to try the Neutrogena products because at 50 years old, I still have a problem with acne in the chin area at times and have never really found a product that works well to combat it.

  42. i Loove Neutrogena products, and have been in a kind of skin care rut lately. Hopefully this product line can bring some life back to my otherwise dulling skin.

  43. I would like to try the Neutrogena products because I have oily, acne-prone skin and I think these products sound perfect. Once I get my beautiful unblemished skin, the book will give me even more of a self-esteem boost!

  44. After reading the reviews for the book, and understanding the 4 keys for postive thinking:
    *Identify and effectively develop your spirituality
    *Discover and embrace your relationships
    *Take control of your health and body image
    *Believe in your dreams and make them a reality
    I applaud the author for writing this wonderful ispiration for our young people. I love Netrogena products. You get great products for reasonable prices.
    I would love to win this giveaway to pass on to my Goddaughter.

  45. judy brittle says:

    I would love to win this book for my 13 year old niece. She is having such a hard time trying to fit in and is sad all the time. I would love to see her with more confidence and a better self esteem. She’s also at that acne age so it would be an added bonus for her. Thank you so much!

  46. I would love to try any of the Neutrogena oil free line because I love Neutrogena’s products and I’m using Clinique’s acne products now.

  51. I would love to try these Neutrogena products. Thank you.

  52. I’d like to try this because this is something I would probably buy anyway (the Neutrogena products, I mean).

  53. I would love to try the power scrub and toner. Anything that will get rid of my acne is awesome with me.

  54. Pamela White says:

    I would like to read the book on positive thinking, life can get overwhelming at times. The Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control products can help me control my adult acne yet not dry out my mature skin.

  55. I would love to read this book! I have been working on having a much more postivie attitude this year and this would help keep me motivated.

  56. Teresa Hoyt says:

  57. Hello, I would love to try Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub because ever since I stopped being able to find the little individual Buff Puffs I have not been able to find a good anti-acne scrub. Neutrogena’s sounds like it would be good to try!

  64. Andrea Bengtson says:

    A couple of years ago I started reading Prevention Magazine. This was shortly after a small spell of sadness after a breakup of a long relationship. I had gotten myself into an unhealthy state of eating badly and not doing any form of exercise. I even work with and inspire those suffering with psychiatric illness to eat healthy and exercise regularly. Finally, I started eating healthy myself, using Neutrogena products which have made my skin feel great (people even think I’m ten years younger than I am which is 38) and I have run in three marathons, one half, one 10K and several 5ks! Thank you to Neutrogena and Prevention Magazine!!
