Giveaway Winner Announced and Natural Hair Magazine!

I want to thank everyone for participating in the $25 Gift Card Giveaway sponsored by Apothica.com! Be sure to check out the wonderful products on the Apothica website and stay tuned for my next giveaway coming soon :o)

The $25 Gift Card Giveaway Winner (chosen via Random.org) is Kim D! Congrats Kim :o)

Also, as I was catching up on some of my favorite blogs, I came across this post on Chai's Back to Curly blog. It was a post on the Natural Bloom Natural Hair Magazine. Natural Bloom is published by Jc of The Natural Hair Haven. This free online magazine is dedicated to celebrating the style and the achievements of women.

The July issue of Natural Bloom features some informative natural hair care articles and great interviews with Akua of Shea Butter Cottage and Jamyla of Oyin, as well as fashion and makeup tips.

Natural Bloom is a wonderful magazine, and I'm not just saying that because of the beautiful Bobeam Shampoo Bar ad - see the ad for a special discount code exclusively for Natural Bloom readers :o). Check out the magazine for yourself below and be sure to subscribe to the Natural Bloom blog as well.

Peace and Blessings...

$25 Gift Card Giveaway!

Hey everyone :o)

Today I am announcing - as the title states- a Gift Card Giveaway!!!! This giveaway is being held via the All Naptural blog sponsor Apothica.com - which sells tons of fine skin and beauty products (there are some great natural hair products on the site as well :o).

One of the many brands sold on Apothica is Clinique. I have been using Clinique products for years and they are wonderful for all skin types.

My favorite products are Clinique's Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector, the (Extra Mild) Face Soap, Clarifying Lotion (Dry Combination), Even Better Makeup SPF 15 (Sienna), Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer SPF 20, and Clinique's Acne Solutions Spot Healing Gel.

If I had to choose only two, the ones that I use the most are the Even Better Makeup SPF 15 (Sienna) and the Acne Solutions Spot Healing Gel. Click to check out the Clinique products sold at Apothica.

I love the Even Better Makeup - it blends with my skin color very well. The best part about it is that unlike most foundations it doesn't make my face break-out (I have super sensitive skin) and I never have any problems with it - even when I pile it on - lol

The Acne Solutions Spot Healing Gel is the greatest! I don't get many break-outs, but the minute I see signs of a bump forming I just put a dab of the gel on and the next day there is nothing there!

It works great on bumps/break-outs that are a little older than a few minutes as well - I usually have to apply the same dab maybe two nights in a row (you can also wear it during the day under makeup) and the bump is gone :o)

Okay back to the Gift Card Giveaway! The prize is a $25 Gift Card that can be used on the entire Apothica site :o)
