Kick Off A New Skincare Routine Inspired By The @Rockettes + @PONDS #PONDSPerforms #Beauty

I remember the first time I saw the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall perform their toppling toy soldiers routine, and was so impressed by their elegant precision. My dad saw it 20 years before I did and said he was stunned the first time he ever saw it too. Some things are simply classic, as good today as the first time, like POND’S cold cream. I used it as a teen to remove my makeup, and I still do, because it’s my favorite way to remove my makeup everyday to keep my skin luminous and soft.

POND’S has paired up with the Rockettes this holiday season to encourage women to kick off an effective new skincare routine, starting with a clean, fresh face. POND’S classic Cold Cream Cleanser helps remove makeup and leaves skin moisturized and feeling refreshed, while POND’S Wet Cleansing Wipes clean off your skin of any old makeup and dirt and help revive dull skin, making it look more luminous.

The Rockette’s stage makeup look is my favorite holiday makeup look, because it’s pure Hollywood glamour. Clear, bright skin, lots of lush black lashes, and glossy red lips, it’s another classic that never go out of style. POND’S cleansing routine has been helping women look more beautiful since 1846, and is one of my beauty staples, just like a great red lipstick and black mascara.

How to look like a Rockette (aka Classic & Glamorous Holiday Beauty)

1 Wipe skin clean with a Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelettes
2 Apply a moisturizing foundation to even out skin tone
3 Apply a light peachy-pink blush to give skin a lovely flush
4 Mascara in very black, and lots of it!
5 A red lipstick

When the party is over, use Pond’s cold cream to remove your makeup and allow your skin to breath and rejuvenate before you start all over again. I plan to host a lot of get togethers this holiday season, and need to look pretty and neat for each event as the hostess, and POND’S Cold Cream and Wet Cleansing Wipes will help me create a much quicker and complete makeup routine.

Pond’s Cold Cream feels refreshing and cool, and smells great! So do the Wet Cleansing Wipes, and when I’m in a pinch and can’t wash the makeup off at home, I make sure to have some POND’S Wet Cleansing Towelettes stored in my car too to freshen up during the day. My makeup doesn’t last all day, so after a busy morning, I wipe it all off and reapply to look great into the evening. You can’t look amazing unless you start off your makeup with a clean, fresh face, and it’s better for your skin too. It’s what the Rockettes use after each show (up to five a day!) to get ready for the next one with beautiful, glowing skin- it’s “Rockettes tested and approved”!

    It’s always awesome when you get to write about products you actually love and use 🙂

  • I use Pond’s makeup removing wipes and I’ve used Pond’s moisturizer for years and years. It is of my favorites.

  • I’ve used Pond’s makeup removing wipes before. They do work really well and the lotions are definitely great.

  • I love Ponds, they are the best makeup removers I’ve ever used. I keep several on stock at all times.

  • The Rockettes are seriously glamorous and they must be in such fantastic shape.

  • The Rockettes are still such a huge part of Christmas iconography. I’d love to know more of their beauty secrets.

  • Very cool! I haven’t used Pond’s brand in years… but I am glad to see that they are still around and making a difference. 🙂

  • I am a West Coast girl that comes from a family with NY roots and feel there is no place like it, especially during the holiday season. The classic Rockettes look definitely sounds attainable!
