GIVEAWAY! Beat the winter "BLAHS"

I am so excited to tell you about this giveaway. Let me say that again. SO EXCITED.

Excited as in I'm sitting here on my couch, squealing like a girl. You know the kind. "EEEEEEEE!" (Needless to say my eyes are clenched shut and I'm stomping my feet quickly on the floor.)

The kind of girl at whom you'd usually catch me rolling my eyes.

But this past fall I made a friend through Twitter. Hillary owns Solessence, a company specializing in organic luxury soaps, lotions and bath fizzies.

When we met in person, she must have seen how dry and flaky my skin was (love these Midwest winters!) because she was kind enough to leave me with some of her product. (Trust me, she's a classy gal - there was no scoffing, no "let me fix yer face" attitude. Just a nice gal and her cute son.)

After several weeks of using the SheaShea sugar scrub, my legs are no longer scaly. My face no longer flaky. I follow up my showers with the matching SheaShea lotion and the winter itchies are gone!

Solessence is giving away to one of my readers the Coconut Shea Gift Bag.


MMMMM...yummy soap...



The set includes SheaShea lotion, scrub and soap.


"OK," you say, "good giveaway. But why the heck are you freaking out?"


Because Solessence isn't some rinky dink operation. Their products have been featured at big time events. With famous people and stuff. When I use the scrub on my legs before I shave I like to imagine J. Lo doing the same. (The extra oil it leaves behind makes for a heavenly shaving experience. And I gotta lotta leg to shave.)


So - how can you win already? You can get one entry for each of the following:


1) Leaving a comment on this post.


2) Letting other folks know on Twitter. Just copy and paste:


r/t @mommy_wins is giving away @solessence luxury soaps and lotions on her blog! http://tinyurl.com/9vjuon


E-mail me the link to your tweet or leave it in your comment.


3) Subscribing to my feed -- you will see a secret note at the bottom of my posts in your reader. E-mail me with that secret note in the subject line. (E-mails will not be read.)


4) Writing a post about it on your blog. (Send me the link.)


This contest will be open until Saturday morning at 10 a.m. Central.


Enter away!

Oh, and this would be for my wife, in case you were wondering. :)

I'm not good at giveaways/contests because of my lackluster abilities to follow rules, but the stuff sounds neat!

You have been looking at my dry flaky legs again haven't you.

I am pretty sure I already subscribed... will go and check.

Mocha said...

The nice part is that you have a bunch of ways to enter and I have a bunch of body parts that need moisturizing. So you see, this is kismet.

Colleen,

Okay, I'm in. I have alligator legs - my husband will tell you, yes, it's true.

I suck at twitter. Why am I so inept at twitter? I can't wrap my head around it. I don't know.

Anyway, yes, sign me up baby!

Kat said...

Yeah! My legs and arm could use a good scrubbin'. Especially if we have to bunk up at BlissDom... lol

I tweeted too - http://twitter.com/SassyIrishLasie/status/1121295640
