I was always thrilled to receive bath and beauty products for Christmas, even before I became the beauty junkie I am today. (I guess it was a sign that, in spite of my early lack of kakikayan, I was already headed in this direction. Haha!)
I think a long bath is a great way to unwind. I suppose it’s bad for your water bill, but it’s good for the soul, whether you’re under the shower (never fails to feel amazing on your scalp and your shoulders—mine are forever tense kasi), or soaking in a warm bath. A lot of my best thinking gets done during bathtime, and sometimes I really do feel like I’m washing the stress away along with the day’s residue.
And I really believe that you can never take too much care of your body. I try to work out, and I’m trying to eat better (though given the options we have near the office, this is a tall order), but I’m really not as healthy as I would like to be. I figure that the very least I can do is to be extra good to my skin.
When it comes to picking bath and body products, I need things to smell good. I need them to be gentle enough for my extremely sensitive skin. And I’m a packaging nerd, so I need them to look pretty. (Haha!)
So, this Christmas, one of my gifts to one of you is the chance to blow some cash on free beauty booty at Fruits & Passion, a bath, beauty, fragrance, and home brand that offers a ridiculously wide variety of products that are pretty much perfect for self-spoiling. (Or, you can do some of your Christmas shopping!) Shower gels, body butters, massage oils, exfoliating scrubs, a wide range of perfumes—they’ve got it all, and then some. Since their products are mostly fruit-based, they’re a little brighter than your standard florals. A little more feisty, a little more fun. :)
To win the GC, all you have to do is “Like” this post. (And of course you have to be following me!) I don’t have the time or money to mail the prize, so you have to be willing to swing by my office on or before the 23rd to pick it up from me in person, and I guess that means you have to be in Manila. :) Contest will close at 3PM next Saturday, the 17th, and I’ll announce the winner within the day.
Said lucky winner will get to spend P5000 in any Fruits & Passion store (there’s one in Greenbelt 3, they carry it in Rustan’s Shangri-La, and there’s a branch in Bonifacio High Street, too).
Best of luck!
