Raise your hand if you remember the awkward struggles of early womanhood. From cramps to breakouts, there’s a lot I WISH I knew. Don’t even get me started on all of the drama that comes with having your first period and being 100% unprepared at 14. Woof. 

Our teenage/early adult years are an awkward time for most young girls. When you throw menstrual cramps, breakouts and hormonal mood shifts on top of that – well, it’s nearly impossible to feel “normal.” The first thing I would say to myself: you’re not alone. The second thing: arm yourself with the tools to get through it.

Cue the Babe Toolkit: complete with Neutrogena® Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser, Motrin® IB and Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Wipes.

A Letter To My Younger Self: 

Dear Lauren, 

You are beautiful. You are strong. 

Embrace the vulnerable moments. 

Remember that you are NOT ALONE. 

Enjoy being a strong woman and all that comes with it. 

And for those moments where you need a bit of rescuing from menstrual pain or acne, keep these goodies in your Babe Toolkit: 

Neutrogena®Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser

Motrin® IB 

Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Wipes


Your future self

The Babe Toolkit 

In addition to keeping an open line of communication with the girls and women in your circle (friends, cousins, moms, aunts, college roommates, etc.), I can’t suggest enough how much of a game changer these products can be! 

For pain relief: Motrin® IB and Motrin® IB Liquid Gels

Fun fact: Motrin® is the #1 OB/GYN recommended brand of menstrual pain relief. It works fast to stop body pain where it starts. Game changer.

For glowing skin: Neutrogena® Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser

You’ll use this stuff well into your early thirties. Believe me. Not only is this cleanser hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested, but it’s soap-free, free of parabens and cleanses away dirt, oil, and bacteria without over-drying. Game changer. 

For a fresh face: Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Wipes, Fragrance Free

If you know me, you know I ALWAYS have a pack of Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Wipes with me. I buy them in bulk, and I have and always will be a fan. These handy wipes gently and effectively dissolve all traces of dirt, oil, and makeup.
