As a child I remember those defining milestones that you knew were special and reserved for when you got a little more mature or reached a certain age…. like wearing make up, getting my ears pierced or going on my first sleep over. I can still remember going into my garage pantry as a kid to go get a new tube of toothpaste or bar of soap and eyeing the nicely lined up boxes of Dove soap…. knowing that those were reserved for my mom because the were “special”. I would ask every once in awhile if I could grab one and she would reply, “not yet, maybe when you get a little older”. Then that day came….. It was Summer and my mom said, “Honey, your face looks a little dry, why don’t try my special Dove soap and see if that helps soften your skin”. I was so excited to have my own bar of Dove, I can still remember the smell as I opened the box, and am reminded of that every time I open a new box as an adult. We never know what is going to stick out as a special moment in our kids lives, help them embrace them all! My 11 year old just got her first bar of Dove soap this Spring Break, and I know it is a small gesture…but is a big step to womanhood in the eye of a tween.
May is the perfect time to stop by your local Walgreens or Duane Reade for a month long beauty event! Once in store, go to the Beauty counter or ask your Beauty Advisor for a $2.00 off coupon for Dove products and sample (while supplies last). This coupon will pair perfectly with their current promotion that when you spend $15 on Dove products you will receive 3,000 Balance Rewards Points until 5/30/15! This is an excellent deal… allowing you to have your very own little pantry stockpile for your child to sit back and admire, wondering when her “special” day will happen!
