Burt's Bees Review and Giveaway ends 3/8 CLOSED

Our new review and giveaway is for some great Burt’s Bees products. First is the Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream. I have been using this face wash for over a year now and I have to say I really notice a difference. It is gentle on my skin and I rarely have break outs anymore. In the shower I put a little on my fingertips and rub it in and rinse off with a wet cloth. It gets off all the dirt and makeup and really makes my skin feel clean and fresh without drying it out. As stated on the Burt's Bees website regarding Soap Bark - "This natural fat obtained from the fruit of the karite tree is a valuable, nourishing addition to moisturizers for the reduction of wrinkles and to improve the elasticity of the skin and protect it against environmental aging. Shea butter is known to increase local capillary circulation, which in turn increases tissue re-oxygenation."

I am also offering a Milk and Shea Butter Body Bar. I have never used this before so I can’t give a review. It has a nice light scent and after what I have heard from others, I will be getting myself a bar as soon as my current soap runs out. Regarding this soap, the Burt's Bees website states "This natural creamy soap combines Milk, a soothing moisturizer, with Shea Butter, rich in essential vitamins A, E, & F, to deeply nourish and condition for naturally soft, smooth, beautiful skin."

One of the big reasons I started using Burt’s Bees products is because I started changing over to more natural products that don't test on animals. I want to really get away from things like parabens, SLS and all the nasty chemicals they put in just about everything we put on our bodies. I found a cool site http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/ where you can go put in the products you use and it will give you a rating based on ingredients. They go from 0-10 with 10 being toxic. You won’t believe how many things you are probably using that rate at or near 10. This cleanser rates a 4 and the soap is a 3.

Giveaway- One lucky follower will receive a 6oz. Burt’s Bees Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream and a 4 oz. Milk and Shea Butter Body Bar.

COOKIE LEE NECKLACE GIVEAWAY ends 2/12 CLOSED

I went to a fair the other day and there was a Cookie Lee lady there.  They have such a nice variety of trendy styles. As soon as I saw the Indigo Ice necklace I thought WOW! It's a real stunner! I decided that I wanted to get it to give away to one of my blog followers. What's really cool about it is that the stones slightly change color depending on what you're wearing. They will appear darker or lighter to match your outfit. Neat!  The stones/beads are a mix of clear and bluish-grey.  It has 3 strands of stones on a silver tone chain. You can adjust the length from 18" - 21". Sorry my pictures don't look so great and don't do this piece justice.




Giveaway- One reader will win an Indigo Ice necklace made by Cookie Lee.

Details- Giveaway ends on February 12, 2011 at 10 pm CST. Winner will be chosen by Random.org. Winner will be contacted by email and have 48 hours to respond or another winner will be drawn. Please make SURE you leave your email in your comments or have it on your profile. Open only to residents of the US age 18 and over.

Mandatory First Entry- Must be a public follower on Google Friend Connect. I will verify and disqualify any non-followers after giveaway closes.
