Date night is one of my favourite nights. While I wish it was once a week it’s more like once a month at my house! With a busy schedule and busy kids it’s hard to find a night when we can get a babysitter and get out and enjoy some time together. Whether it’s a a dinner out or a movie it’s so nice to have adult time.
Getting ready for date night takes a bit more work than I’d like to admit! I want to make it special so take the extra time with makeup, clothes and personal prep. Luckily I have so many great Church and Dwight products on hand to ensure I’ve got the tools I need.
I love using my Batiste™ Dry Shampoo Original to keep my hair looking fresh even when I don’t have time to shampoo. Perfect for those days that I straighten my naturally curly hair and want to get one more day of straight hair in. Plus, my guy loves it straight so perfect for date night!
Next up is Nair™ WAX READY-STRIPS to make sure my winter body is ready! And of course, my daily Vitafusion Women’s Multivitamins ensure I’ve got the energy and feel great to stay up a little later than usual.
What about you? What does your date night prep look like?

Love to do my hair and natural look makeup. Sometimes I love for us just to stay at home and prepare meal together, depending if we have where to drop off kids for few hours
Gonna be honest here and state that I do not do a whole lot different than I do any other day. Maybe I should try living a little younger again. :)
Rosanne Robinson says
Start off with a nice hot shower, wash & style my hair, choose an outfit and apply light natural looking make-up.

Date nights I usually put on a bit more makeup, paint my nails and wear a nice dress.

On date night I add some more makeup. I dress in something I don’t wear often.

When it finally does happen with 4 kids…usually starts off with a bath, a little extra time on myself,hair and make-up, a take out menu and a dvd. I don’t need much…after 15 years together some alone is all I need :)

Shower, blow dry, hot rollers and light makeup. Clothes totally depend on mood and how creative I feel. Oh and I brush my tea, that’s kind of important. haha
Brenda Witherspoon-Bedard says
mine is pretty typical – shower. do hair and pick out a nice outfit
Date nights I usually do my hair, makeup, and find something comfy but sexy to wear. And a very comfy pair of shoes:)
Shower, dress, makeup, heels, perfume. And the most important a babysitter.

I can’t remember the last time I went on a date, so there’s no need for preparations, guess it saves time eh?

Starts with me picking out something to wear then into a long shower to shave the legs and then dressed, get make up and hair done hopefully before going out.
Makeup and a pretty dress!
It has been a while since we had date night to be honest. With a 5 month old and no sitter close by it has been a challenge!
Monique L.S. says
The last date night we had there was no prep – just run out the door once the kids were in bed and the sitter here.

Lori L. says
Date night, what’s that!? We usually go out sans kids like once a year so I don’t really recall what I do to get ready. I suppose I’d shower, blow dry my hair (that never happens) and put on a nice outfit.
We really are overdue for a date night!
Tracey Schmidt says
Date night usually means wearing makeup and actually brushing my hair.

Makeup and a fresh outfit is usually it, might fix the hair if it didn’t make it through the day at the office.

Start off with shave and shower. Drop kids at Babysitters. Maybe start with a glass of wine, and take it from there.

A thorough shower to give myself a nice clean.
Finding a baby sitter and them getting out as quickly as possible.
