Beauty Buzz & Giveaway: Aromatherapaes

As I went through my “green” stage, I was on the look out for natural beauty products. Believe me, there are so many out there, but sometimes they just straight out don’t work. And the ones that do work are very expensive. If you feel the same way, then you are going to really like Aromatherapaes.

Aromatherapaes is a certified natural line of aromatherapeutic bath, body, and skincare products. The combine the most beneficial essential oils with the safest, natural ingredients.

Some of the essential oils they use are bergamot, chamomile, eucalyptus, lavendar, neroli, orange, and peppermint…to name a few.

I tried the Refreshing Moisture Lotion in Sweet Orange & Vanilla, Nourishing Moisture Body Wash in Sweet Orange & Vanilla, and the Refreshing Moisture All-Over Balm in Sweet Orange & Vanilla. I’m kind of in love with the All-Over Balm. I use it on my elbows and feet. Because you know how our feet get during the summer wearing nothing but sandals.

First of all, they smell incredibly good. And just knowing the company is cruelty-free makes me very happy. They don’t use sulfates, parabens, phthalate or formaldehyde donors, or ethoxylated ingredients (all the bad stuff).

Do you want to try it out for yourself? I have few travel size products for you.

Leave a comment below, telling me why you use all-natural products.

Rules: must be 18 years-or-older, your information has to be correct, only one entry per person, and you must claim your prize within 24 hours, winner will be chosen via random.org, and giveaway ends 8/22/11 12pm PST.

The Women with Control Giveaway

The debate of wearing shapewear continues. You either wear it or you don’t. I am very proud of my body and I wear shapewear. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Wearing it won’t make me loose 10 pounds, but it does smooth me out. With some women, that can definitely mean a boost in their confidence. We all know what it’s like to wear something we love and feel very comfortable in it.

Women with Control is all about making women feel good in their clothes. They are a lifestyle collection, comprised of pants, leggings, capris, dresses, skirts and tops that are specifically designed to control your body shape. Combining 85% cotton and 14% spandex, Women With Control has set itself apart from other brands on the market because most apparel only has 2-5% spandex, making the pieces unflatteringly hug the body rather than control and support your shape.

I was orginally supposed to review a few pieces, but they didn’t fit me. So, I want to give it away to one of you. I have their tummy control tank top and a pair of boot cut pant  Both in a size 3X (26-28).

As you can tell, the two basic pieces can be paired and mixed with almost anything in your wardrobe. You can find more of their pieces on QVC.com.

To enter, leave a comment below and tell me how you’d dress up these two basic pieces. Make sure you leave a valid email address or your entry will not count. 

Rules: You must be 18 yrs or older to enter. US residents only. You must claim your prize within 24 hours of notification. Winner will be cbosen using random.org. and will end 8/5/11. Shipping will take 4-6 weeks.

Disclosure: The prize is sponsored by Women with Control. The above is my true and honest opinion.
