Olympic Beauty Buzz | Pantene’s Win a Day with Natalie Contest {& Daily Moisture Renewal Giveaway}

PANTENE's Win a Day with Natalie Coughlin Contest

Are you as pumped for the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games tonight as I am?

I watched the trials, learned many the athletes’ backstories, and feel sufficiently invested in Team USA!

One of the most compelling, is that of Natalie Coughlin, the 29-year old, 11-time Olympic medalist for USA Swimming (3 Gold, 4 Silver, and 4 Bronze).  She’s competing in the 4×100 relay tomorrow, her only event in the Games, and if her team medals, she’ll tie Jenny Thompson and Dara Torres as America’s most decorated female Olympian of all time!

Pantene is sponsoring Coughlin in the Games and recently launched a Win A Day With Natalie Contest where one lucky swim team will get to swim and learn tips and tricks from the Olympic swimmer all day!  You can enter here (if you’re under the age of 13, be sure to ask your parents or guardian to enter).  Such a great fit since Coughlin is as much a beauty icon as she is a health icon.  Just look at that hair!

When I learned Coughlin maintains her gorgeous locks with Pantene’s Daily Moisture Renewal, I couldn’t wait to try it.  Given the amount of time she spends in damaging chlorinated water, it’s especially impressive.

Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal is a unique collection of shampoos, conditioners, stylers, and treatments designed for daily use to help repair dry, damaged hair.  Each product in the Daily Moisture Renewal collection contains a proprietary Pro-Vitamin formula that helps to control hair’s moisture levels and prevent damage for a soft, smooth, moisturized feel.

My issue is blow-drying.  I definitely notice an immediate difference when I use the Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner.  They’re designed for all hair types but have a thicker, creamier formula which coats the hair well, moisturizes, and detangles.  I have thick, wavy hair, so this formula works particularly well for me when dryness is an issue.

Pantene Moisture RenewalWIN IT!  Even if you or your kids aren’t part of a swim team, Pantene wants to add a little glamour to your Olympic Games experience and is giving 25 Glamamom readers the Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner!

TO ENTER:  You must follow Glamamom at least one of the following ways: confirmed email subscription, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram.  Just leave a comment below with your own “Gold Medal Moment” (i.e. graduation, a big promotion, best friend’s wedding day, birth of a child, etc.).

One entry per person.  Winners must be 18 years old and US residents.  I’ll randomly choose the 25 winners in a week.

Enjoy the Games!

UPDATE: The winners are: Allisha, Missa, Monica, Pamela Halligan, 1955nurse, Terri P, Amy Orvin, Bicultural Mama, Terri, Julie P, Charity L, Tina Reynolds, Claire, Lana Bradstream, Amanda Hoffman, D. Schmidt, Mary Williams, Laura Ari, Dede, Emily Evert, Jennifer Clay, Autumn, Julie, Fiona N, Tammy Hoffa.  I’ll notify everyone via email as well. Congrats!

{I was not compensated for this post.  I received the Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner for review purposes.}


  1. @marybhelms :

    The Gold Medal Moments of my life are the day I met my husband & the day I gave birth to my son.

    Not to copy the previous commenter, but a big “ditto.” My Gold Medal Moments were definitely the days I gave birth to my children. Come to think of it, a gold medal would make for an interesting push present…

  3. meredith montgomery :

    My Gold Medal Moment was the first day of the job I had been trying to get for a long time!

  4. The wonderfully beautiful wedding of our daughter last October was definitely was a “gold medal” day! It all came together nicely, despite the fact that as I was returning to the church after getting all ready (a mere 2.5 hrs before the event) I was rear ended while waiting to turn in the parking lot! Even though I was hit severely enough to total my van (he was going at least 45 mph at impact), we danced the evening away at the reception! I was out of commission for a few days later. Still, a day I will hold close in my heart!

  5. Following on Facebook. My gold medal moment was when I received a valedictorian medal from my high school.

    The day I achieved swimming. When I was 10, I started swimming lessons and was horrible. But then I finally got the hang of it. We had to dive in. I was the only person my age there. Everyone else was younger then me. They all could dive in without help but I couldn’t. Then I jumped in. By myself! It was such an accomplished moment. Gold Medal for me for sure! :)

  69. My “Gold Medal Moment” was quite literally a Gold Medal Moment! I studied and competed in Academic Decathlon for 3 of my high school years, and my final year in 2011 I received a lot of medals at our regional competition, including getting the highest score over all of my competitors! Of course graduation was great as well, but that one day when I kept hearing “And the gold medal goes to… Allisha Gold!” was just amazing. :)
