"Calgon, Take Me Away!" was a running punchline throughout an entire decade (the '80s, it was a weird time) and we're excited, if for none other reason than that the beauty brand is a harbinger of our idyllic childhoods, that Calgon is rebranding and relaunching this March. Yay!
Enter for a chance to win the entire "Morning Glory" set of new Calgon launches—beauty products including body lotions, bubble baths, and fizzy salts. All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, February 15, 2010 with your name, mailing address, and a story about your most stressful day ever—if it involves a fashion emergency, all the better! Tell us why Calgon should take you away, we'll publish the winning entry (anonymously, of course) and will reward that one lucky stressed-out Racked National Reader with the prize.
