Body Shop Giveaway!!!!



I'm thrilled to be teaming up with The Body Shop again to bring you a chance to win another fabulous prize: this time, a gift set of the company's newly relaunched line of coconut-scented skincare products!



As a general rule, I'm against things that haven't been tested on animals and don't cause redness or swelling at the site of application, but I make an exception for fancy lotion that calls itself butter and makes me smell like a piña colada.

The Body Shop's newly revamped coconut line is special for another reason as well: everything in the collection is now made with organic virgin coconut oil from the company's new Community Trade supplier in Samoa.

Samoa...otherwise known as the great (and totally gorgeous) place that boasts of this:


And is the namesake of this:

By now, you know the drill. If you want a chance to win the skincare gift set, all you have to do is leave a comment. Want a second entry? Link to this giveaway post on your blog and leave a second comment.

The contest starts NOW and ends this Friday, July 17 at midnight EST. The winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

Thanks Body Shop and, as always, good luck!

I love the summery smell of coconut!

Leigh said...

I would love to smell like a coconut all day! It would make me think I'm somewhere else!

Juliane M. Kilcoyne, CMP said...

The smell of pina coladas may help mask the smells of toddlers in my home - goldfish, diapers, an old sippy cup of milk that i can't find but know is somewhere in my living room!

Marcie said...

oh...I could smell so good. woohoo!

The Woman Formerly Known as Jenn said...

Funny how I hate the taste of coconut but love the smell of coconut body products. Count the weirdness that is me in!

YellowMutt said...

oooh, oooh, I never win anything! pick me! pick me! *waving hand wildly in the air and practically falling off my office chair*

We don't have children but we live vicariously through my friends and their children. We also offer our home as a "safe" house for when the moms or dads need to get away and relax or as they say "It is so nice to be somewhere for a few minutes and not hear someone yell your name 100 times or step on a million tiny toy parts." Sometimes when I watch their kids we prentend we are having a spa day and this would come in really handy. I may not have kids but I am a vital part in keeping their parents sane!

Elise said...

YAY!! Pick me!! Pick me!! I need some great summery smellin' stuff that will make me feel like I'm on vacation...

Sarah N. said...

Who doesn't want to smell like a pina colada? Thanks for the great giveaway!

I love the smell of coconut! Thanks for the giveaway!

Erin said...

My husband loathes the smell of coconut; I could use this as a repellent when I want him to stay away!

Jessie said...

I love the Body Shop!!! I also can let my 5 going on 16 year old daughter use it because it's sensitive enough for her skin. She loves to get ready with her Meme (that's what she calls me when she's not calling me, "MOTHER!") for a fun day when I'm home for a day or two!

Beckie said...

I've never entered your contests before - but this one, I must. Hi, I'm Beckie, and I'm addicted to coconut smelling products. Proof of such is in my linen closet - where you can find approximately 37 (down from 40) bottles of Bath & Body Works Co-Co Cabana lotion. It's my signature scent and when I heard they might possibly discontinue it - why yes, I totally ran around my state buying all that I could find. Must go apply now - Peace be with you.

erin said...

I say that anyone who goes out of their busy all night graveyard shift in search of the great all mighty blog, should be granted the great smell of "butt-er".

Thanks,
Natalie B.

Oh yum! Whenever I walk by that store in the mall I rack my brain for a reason to buy a new candle, lotion, or other body product. The amazing smells draw me in!!

Amanda Ray said...

Oh happy day! I loooooooove the Body Shop and my favorite scent is none other than coconut!
The only creatures that love it more are my dogs. Whenever I try to give myself a little extra oomph for the hubby by lathering myself in scented products...the dogs proceed to give me a second bath in SLOBBER!
Here's to hoping the Organic Virgin Coconut oil isn't to their taste!
