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 piƱa 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!

Oh my gosh... This would be the most perfect giveway to "win" the husband could then quite complaining that I smell like raw chicken (aka... breastmilk, fresh AND regurgitated).
Besides I tend to consider myself a "fruity" type of person and what better scent than coconuts!!

Doug and Kristen said...

I think I can actually smell the coconut right now! I'm being serious. Yummy :)

If I win; I will put it on, close my eyes and pretend my kids are actually dolphins frolicking in the blue ocean and I am sitting on the beach not my couch!

Amy said...

Jen said...

Your blog is hilarious I just want to say ( I just recently stumbled upon it and now check for a hilarious entry every day! I even put a button on my blog for ease of access and to share the hilarity with my family!) Your sense of humor is great, thanks for sharing the stories you do! And what a great give-away by the way!

jennputney said...

Holy snarky you have a ton of comments!!

Melanie said...

Wouldn't it be great if I smelled "tropical" all day rather than "vivid proof that my stupid depderant can't keep up with the 115° phoenix heat" smell? Yes. Yes I think TROPICAL would be a nice alternative the latter (much less desired) scent.

Anonymous said...

Right now, I could really use some coconut lotion since I think it would be frowned upon if I actually had some coconut (rum) at my desk!

Denise said...

I love coconut lotions and potions. So upset a BBW for discontinuing the exotic coconut!

Amy J said...

That smell always makes me think of junior high PE.. you know back when we wore product to make our skin tan! I was just thinking the other day how none of our SUNSCREEN smells good like that stuff did. So maybe I could use it WITH the sunscreen... hmmm. :)

rachelle said...

mmm. i love me some coconut...

Mrs. Bennett said...

Paige said...

This would be a great prize to win, cuz it just might mask the smell of "I haven't taken a shower in 4 days because I have 3 kids that are climbing all over me and won't give me 5 minutes to take a shower" smell.

I LOVE all of body shops smells, every time i walk by the door it smells so dang good!

The Carr Family said...

Coconut take me away!

Shannon said...

Yes please. And you should throw in a box of those samoan GS cookies too. It's really cruel to show them and then not let us partake.

Unknown said...

Love that Samoa cookie! They're the best :D

Helen said...

Oooh coconut!

And now I want Girl Scout cookies... thanks a lot Jana!

Katie said...

Love coconut and love Pina Coladas even more...sign me up!

Liza said...

I'm pregnant and live in the Arizonan desert, and my skin is SCREAMING for some hydration! And if it smelled like paradise, all the better for my dehydrated, green-deprived soul. Please pick me!

Oh Awesome!! I would love to smell of coconut!!

Elizabeth said...

I love the smell of summer!! And maybe I deserve to win since my husband is from Western Samoa?? The smell can "take him home". LOL

O'Loughlin Family said...

I would love to smell like coconut!

KW said...

This should totally be mine for 4reasons:

1. My husband hates the smell of coconut and he's really been irking me lately so this will keep him far, far away.

2. It's summer, with 4 boys who seem to really like being near me, especially when I'm on the phone. If I wear the lotion I might just be able to overpower their "manly" scent.

3. I haven't had a vacation since Fall of 2002, or day away from the kids,(no joke)for a good 5 years, just being able to type this message with only 12 distractions(so far) is almost like a gift of its own, actually winning it will make the time on the computer well spent.

4. Distraction #13 just began, where do I sign my 2yr old up for testing "babyproof" items??? He can destroy them all...

Becky said...

The smell of coconut is the closest thing to the "tropics" that I'm gonna get anytime soon. Help me out...

Pam said...

Count me in!

Caldwell said...

Oh, man...now I'm craving girl scout cookies!

Jen said...

Oh count me in. I love coconut! :)

Cathryn said...

If you are in California, why in the world would you be awake to complete the contest at midnight EST???

Supermom819611 said...

Kelly said...

I love coconuts and would like to be wisked away to a tropical destination the next time one of my kids has a tantrum.

farmerswife17 said...

I know it's past midnight EST, but it's only 11:07 MST. So I hope I can squeeze this last one in....

I would love the body butter to smear on my belly before it becomes the size of a watermelon. No not because I plan on binge eating, but I just recently found out I will be giving birth (to a baby watermelon) in 7 months!

Erica Kain said...
