ROHTO Cooling Eye Drops review and giveaway!

ROHTO® Cooling Eye Drops:

The secret weapon of makeup artists to the stars (featured in the April12 issue of US Weekly!), and a gift to sleep-deprived people everywhere, these drops are like beauty sleep in a bottle, so you don’t have to face the day looking red-eyed and scary! ROHTO eye drops are the only eye relief products on the market that not only relieve dryness, redness and irritation, but also contain signature ingredients that enhance the sensation of relief and give a “kick” to tired eyes. Below is a breakdown of the product line, and product images can be found here: .

· ROHTO® Hydra: The newest product offering, specifically formulated to lubricate and provide long-lasting moisture for dry, irritated eyes with the closest hydration to nature tears, while also providing the brand’s signature cooling “kick”

· ROHTO® Cool: a general purpose eye drop that combines redness relief with a gentle cooling sensation

· ROHTO® Ice: relieves redness while also soothing itch, irritation and burn with an intense cooling sensation

· ROHTO® Arctic: revives strained, overworked eyes and relieves redness with a mild “pick me up” sensation

ROHTO also happens to be the eye drop of choice for many endurance athletes, whose eyes are assaulted by the elements daily during training. In light of that, the brand is sponsoring the ROHTO Endurance Sweepstakes through September 30, 2010, where two grand-prize winners (one male and one female) will receive a men’s and women’s Ceepo® bike, respectively. The sweepstakes also includes weekly prizes of ROHTO Training Kits that will include a valuable assortment of training gear and nutritional items. Readers can go to to enter. For ongoing product and giveaway info, look for Rohto on Facebook


I don't TYPICALLY have problems with my eyes...however, once in a great while I do. This fall for example, I have had terrible allergies! At one point, I even had an eye infection due in part I think to allergies. I started using these drops when I noticed redness. I do want to point out...I still had eye PUFFINESS...but this product did take the redness and some, if not all of the itchiness away. I have had this product for awhile to review, but I haven't reviewed it because I wanted to wait until I needed the product in order to give you a truthful review and I believe that this product does all that it says it will do. It seems to be a great product and I think that anyone experiencing allergies...or redness for any other reason (other than infection), should use this product.

The great people at Rohto are happy to provide a set of Rohto® Hydra and Rohto® Cool for a giveaway to one Hockey Mom reader.

Lose-A-Palooza is a one-day social media event created to encourage participation in the Lose For Good® campaign to benefit Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger.

As part of the Lose For Good campaign, Weight Watchers will donate $1, up to a maximum of $60,000, to Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger for each approved mention, acknowledgment or action related to “Lose For Good” made on September 14th through blogs, Twitter, Facebook and check-in via foursquare.

Important note: there is a difference between Lose For Good and Lose-A-Palooza. Lose For Good is a 7-week campaign, Lose-A-Palooza, on the other hand, is a one-day event as part of the Lose For Good campaign. The event runs one day only – September 14th – and its objective is to drive as much social media awareness as possible for Lose For Good. Every time Lose For Good is mentioned using an approved method on 9/14, Weight Watchers will track the mention and donate a dollar – up to $60,000.

More campaign info and details can be found in the project introduction newsletter:

Electrolux Rumpled to Runway!

As Moms, we pull a lot of things together, from weekday meals to our little ones' back-to-school wardrobes. However, usually what suffers is our own wardrobe, as we pull wrinkled garments over our heads to make it out the door on time! Luckily, our favorite Mom/Brand team is getting together to show women everywhere how to go from rumpled to runway.

Electrolux and brand ambassador Kelly Ripa are partnering with some fashion-savvy bloggers to host a special fashion show to help raise awareness and funds to support ovarian cancer research.

Since September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, this fashion-focused event couldn't have come at a better time! This fun and innovative fashion show will demonstrate how Perfect Steam™, and a little fashion ingenuity, can take any garments from "Rumpled to Runway".

Even if you're not in the Big Apple to watch in person, you can cheer them on LIVE at TODAY at 1 PM EDT. Be sure to visit, because everytime you do, Electrolux will donate $1 to Ovarian Cancer Research. You can also follow along at Facebook/KellyConfidential and on Twitter @KCbyElectrolux.

Find out how you can help support the cause at Kelly Confidential and enter for a chance to win a daily shopping spree and the grand prize: a Perfect Steam™ washer and dryer from Electrolux.

*In exchange for this post, I have been entered for a chance to win the gift as part of the Electrolux program as well.*
