Being a “tween” is confusing. So many emotional changes, bodily changes and the newly acquired body care routines that go along with them. Being the Mother of a Tween girl can be fairly confusing as well, believe me. Helping my daughter begin the transition to womanhood has been one of the scariest ( just being honest! ) events of recent history. Not only the emotional aspect, but helping her adjust to her newly developed set of responsibilities that come along with the rapid development, has also been a little bit of a struggle as well. She is scared, resistant and honestly, really confused. To make things a bit less scary, a little less complicated and a whole lot more fun, I came up with a fun idea to introduce her to all of the essential (yet possibly daunting) new products into her life, a “Welcome to the Tween Years” body product kit! DSC_2916-3

In her kit I included :

  1. Limited Edition Bioré  Deep Cleansing Pore Strips, with awesome zebra stripes, available exclusively at Walmart.
  2. Raspberry scented shaving cream! I wrapped the bottle in an adorable zebra tape!
  3. A super cute pink, zebra striped hand-held mirror.
  4. Pads, sized and designed especially for younger girls.

I also included a zebra shower cap, an adjustable spa headband, two pink razors with zebra tape wrapped around the handle, a deodorant wrapped in zebra tape and a body wash pouf in her favorite color. I stored all of these items in a plastic container ( which I thought could easily be stored as well as cleaned )  that I wrapped the zebra tape around for added effect.


This kit theme was inspired by the Bioré Cleansing Strips that I purchased in the Zebra stripe print ( though also available in leopard print! ). The fun colors and print definitely made all of the more grown up essentials seem a little less intimidating and maybe even a little fun! She was delighted when I presented her with her little kit and couldn’t wait to try out all of her new products! We decided to give the Bioré Cleansing Strips the first test, these are definitely the simplest and least scary…and honestly, the most fun! ( Who doesn’t love checking out the strip once you’ve pulled it off?! )


Easily decorate your kit supplies and container with your favorite tape!

These Bioré Cleansing Strips  are available for purchase exclusively @ Walmart!  #FiercelyCleanPores

My beautiful daughter Leelah, decided to share her step-by-step process of applying and removing her new Bioré Cleansing Strips ! She had a blast applying and removing the strips, and was amazed with her results!

First off, you will remove your strip packet from the box, then remove the strip from the pouch. Once you have the strip out of the pouch, you will give it a little twist to loosen and separate the slits before using.

Next you are going to wash your face using your normal face washing routine, because of her sensitive skin, Leelah’ s routine is fairly simple.  Next…

tut2After wetting your nose, remember to dry your hands. Then…

Once your strip is on and you have smoothed down the sides completely, wait 10-15 until the strip is stiff to the touch.



Have fun while you’re waiting! Sing a song, look at yourself in the mirror, even inspect your new goodies a little more…then slowly and carefully REMOVE by starting at the edges and pulling towards the center. Then…


Check out all of the grossies you removed from your nose! ( the best part…well other than smooth unclogged skin! )


Taming your wildest pores has never been easier with these adorable Bioré Cleansing Strips! Available exclusively at Walmart they make a great addition to your “Welcome to the Tween Years” kit, or your very own skin care regime. They made a drastic difference on mine and my daughter’s noses and cheeks and are a welcomes addition into the new routine!  #FiercelyCleanPores

Now, tell me, do you have a tween at home that you would love to shop for supplies to make your very own kit for? And which print would you or your daughter choose?

  1. I see Friday me going to get some with zebra print!!! I just used my other one no to long ago but it didn’t have designs so just to make it more fun I’m getting some!!!!!!!

  2. How cute! I like deep cleansing Pore strips and think they work great! Your daughter is so cute and thanks for her showing it how these strips work!

  3. My niece and i read the article and she is so excited to read something that understands her. I’ve always loved Biore products. I know she will too

  4. As a father of two boys who are not immune to skin issues this is very helpful information. Not sure they would go for the leopard print!

  5. How cool! you are so creative I had to pin this so I can do this for my girl in a year or two when she is old enough. love the print idea!

  6. That’s such a cute and thoughtful idea! I’ve never used pore strips, but I think I might give them a try.

  7. very cut, would be great for a girls slumber party. i like the larger design as well. i remember using Biore products, i used the pore strips and the self heating mask. i like the colorful strips.

  8. what a great idea! I love the tape idea to create a fun, cohesive style! My daughters a little young yet but I know a girl that would be so happy to receive a kit like this, zebra and all. thank you for the fantastic idea

  9. Seriously cute idea. My daughters only 7… But I know time flies by so fast and this idea is going into long term storage for the day she becomes a tweenager

  10. Heather I saw this on here the other day and actually set one up already for my 16 year old niece thanks for the idea- she loved it and I had fun putting it together.

  11. Pretty cute idea, but it has reminded me of a way easy (and way cheaper), natural DIY recipe for the homemade pore strip….AND it worked really well too. Being frugal yourself, I will post the recipe as soon as I locate the darn thing.

    Thanks for sharing with us!

  12. I love this idea!! I did something similar with my neice when she reached that tween age. I made her a purse with lip balms, hand lotions, menstration must haves, face cleansers, travel brushes and dry shampoos, travel perfume and cleansing wipes and deoderant to stay fresh! And some light make up (eyeshadow, lip glosses) And we had a sleep over , watched you tube tutorials, watched movies and lots of music and fun! This is a great idea to bond with and open up with our younger generations! I am so glad you posted this!!

  13. This is a super cute idea! I love how you tied in the print through-out the it! I wish they had more prints because i am not big animal print person. I would love to do this kit for my daughter with like a glitter print. the only thing i would add is a hair brush (the wet hair brush!) to the kit, but other then that I love it! Thank you for this super cute idea! I think this is a great way for young girls to be introduced to becoming a woman!

  14. your glasses are cute! also, thanks for the tip I nevefr used this in my tween years(well Im only 19 so not htat much older but still)

  15. this is a really awesome kit idea. my 12 year old neighbor and 3 older sisters live with their grandparents and just recently lost their grandmother. i have now become the surrogate grandmother and this particular 12 yr old has soooooo many questions about her body and what to do. been giving her a few items of my own, but never thought of creating her own little personal kit.

  16. Great idea and gift for a tween. I wish I had something like this when I was young it sure would have helped a lot.

  17. This is nice! Great idea….it’s so important to build our tweens self esteem. I think things like this is perfect just for that! Great ideas and tips!

  18. This is cool. I have a 16 year old that could use this. She loves to make things with the tape and we have this zebra print already. It is her favorite.

  19. Great idea. Mine are all past the tween years but this is something they would have liked. DD#2 loves zebra print so she’d like the print you used!

  20. Totally cute idea! My sister isn’t a tween.. but she’s 16 and would love this! I would have never thought of this.

  21. This is a great idea! My youngest is a tween. Wish someone would have thought this up when my oldest was a tween.

  22. I think the whole review is awesome- especially the pics of the girl trying out the strips. It takes guts to go public doing that!

  23. I thought what you made was wonderful. My girls aren’t quite there yet I still 2 years but I will keep this in mind when the time comes. I have to admit that yes I look at the bore strip after I take it off too.

  24. This is such a cute idea. I would have loved a little kit like this when I was her age. I remember my sister and I used to be obsessed with these strips. We would use them at the same time and then compare the grossness lol.

  25. I don’t have any “tweens” in my household. However, I do have a niece and I’d be willing to bet any of the Biore` products would suit her just fine! I personally am partial to the blackhead strips as I get them in my nose from time to time and it would be great to be able to get them out with a pull of a strip!

  26. i think that it is great idea to have such a package because many teens suffer from acne, whether it be severe or just mild. the gift package is a great idea for teens especially for slumber parties, to use the different masks and make up their own but coloring them.

  27. I think anything that makes them accept themselves and not make the tweens cry is great. We would pick the zebra style as well. But.hey what about the boys?? They need a bitof help too.

  28. My oldest granddaughter is 8 not a tween yet but getting there. I think this is a great idea to help build confidence.

  29. i think that they are cute, the package of strips. i have tried them previously. i think the box of goodies is a good thing to do for girls’ slumber parties.

  30. don’t have a child this age group, but will pass on to my niece whose daughter is approaching this age group. looks really helpful.

  31. I think this is a awesome cute idea for the ladies. I think its a cute way to get them started on a life ling habit. We as women do the daily face thing.

  32. I love this review! When I went to the site, I saw the Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips and I wonder how well they work or if they’re better than the other Biore strips.

  33. I thought this was a really cute idea, i think i’m going to make something like this for my daughter’s birthday.

  34. I totally didn’t know Biore made pore strips in funky designs! I feel so out of touch lol They are so cute and a kit like this is a perfect idea especially since that age is full of awkwardness and you are just starting to discover things.

  35. I recently just bought some Biore strips but the white ones! I can’t believe there’s cute printed ones now, I really want to try those!

  36. i think create your own biore strips for teen is a great idea and is a great slumber party theme. the girls can create, mix and match their own strips and have a wonderful time.

  37. I wish i had had a kit like this when i was a tween, but now that i saw this i know what to do for my nieces when they get to that age. Its so cute and functional!

  38. Omg my little sister would love having one of these it’s such a great way to get her to understand how to maintain a beauty regimen and enjoy being a beautiful girl!
