Holiday giveaway: treats from The Body Shop



Because moms work so hard all year long, and most of us don't get holiday bonuses, I'm doing a series of giveaways in December. First up: The Body Shop's limited edition seasonal collection. I'm a longtime fan of this company, which has a history of doing good. Many ingredients in their products come from the Community Trade Program, which pays producers (who often live in the poorest countries) a fair price. They've enabled more than 25,000 people in 20 countries to get fair wages for their work. How great is that? Also: Their stuff smells great.

I'm giving away the three sets you see here, worth approximately $100 each. Above, Merry Cranberry Lip Balm, Soap, Body Smoother, Bath & Shower Gel, Frosted Shimmer Lotion, Hand Créme, Body Butter, Body Shimmer.


Nutmeg and Vanilla Soap, Lip Balm, Bath & Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Hi-Glimmer Body Glaze, Body Butter and Fondant Body Scrub.


Black Velvet Apricot Lip Balm, Soap, Body Smoother, Bath & Shower Nectar, Frosted Shimmer Lotion, Body Butter.

To enter, leave a comment mentioning which of the three collections you'd like to win. If you'd like an extra giveaway entry, Tweet about this giveaway and leave a comment with your Tweet time stamp (translation for Twitter newbies like me: click on the time below the Tweet, which shows you the URL). If you'd like another extra entry, follow this blog.

This giveaway will be open until Sunday, Dec 6 at 11:59 p.m. EST. I'll pick the three winners via random.org and announce them here on Monday December 7, then confirm with an e-mail. Good luck! Remember, you must leave your e-mail if you don't have a Blogger account so I'll know how to contact you.

Update: This giveaway is now closed.

    Aren't you the festive one. I was going to say cranberry, but since it is the early favorite I will try for apricot.
