John Masters Organics Soap Giveaway!

With the launch of his eponymous product line in the early 90’s, John Masters set the standard for “green” beauty. Now this visionary pioneer raises the bar with the launch of three organic bar soaps exceptional enough to meet his exacting standards.

John Masters Organics Bar Soaps are certified organic by Oregon Tilth and feature a gentle, skin-loving base of certified-organic palm and coconut oils. Each of these luscious bars smells incredible, delivers serious, targeted results and comes wrapped in 100% recycled paper printed with water-based inks.

John Masters Organics new Bar Soaps are available in three super-moisturizing formulas that meet various needs and treat all skin types:

Lavender, Rose, Geranium & Ylang Ylang Soap: Formulated with organic olive and cupuacu seed butter and organic glycerin, this may very well be the perfect beauty bar. Lavender, rose geranium and ylang ylang essential oils impart a heavenly fragrance while offering skin soothing and balancing benefits, making this soap ideal for both face and body.

Birch & Cedarwood Cleansing & Shaving Bar: This incredible multi-purpose soap is an excellent all-over body cleanser that also functions as a shaving bar for men and women. Enriched with organic olive oil, it lathers to a rich and soothing foam that allows for a close and comfortable shave. Birch and cedarwood oils offer antiseptic properties that help prevent shaving irritation and leave skin clean and conditioned.

Orange & Ginseng Exfoliating Body Bar: This unique body bar contains real organic orange and lime peel that gently and effectively exfoliates while ginseng root stimulates and revitalizes. Exhilarating essential oil of orange blended with an organic palm and coconut oil soap base creates an invigorating lather with high glycerin content. Skin is left clean, soft and smooth.

Each 4.5 oz John Masters Organics Bar Soap ($8) is available at johnmasters.com, Whole Foods Markets and a variety of spas and boutiques nationwide.

This week, one reader will get spoiled pretty with a set of all three bar soaps!

Find Your Burt On Earth Day!

This April, Burt’s Bees celebrates 40 years of Earth Day with a nod to none other than their namesake and co-founder, Burt Shavitz. Burt is no newcomer to the green arena: The beard and spirit behind the earth-friendly company participated in the first Earth Day celebration four decades agoand has been living lightly on the planet ever since. Burt has brought his love and respect for the natural world into the everyday practices of Burt’s Bees for 25 years, and now he’s encouraging New York locals to “Find Their Burt” by discovering the earth-friendly potential we all share.

On April 22nd, 2010, Burt look-alikes will take to the streets of New York, handing out samples and urging folks to be as eco-friendly as Burt in honor of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. Passing out free “Burt” beards and hats, the Burt look-alikes will help transform the crowds into “Burts” themselves. Look for them near Rockefeller Center and in Central Park.

Burt’s Bees will also be offering people-powered natural smoothies at a “Bike Blender” station in Times Square, where visitors can stop by and enjoy a smoothie featuring natural ingredients like milk, honey, pomegranate, and cranberry (some of the same natural ingredients you’ll find in Burt’s Bees® products). The pedaling action actually powers the blender, creating a wholesome natural treat with clean energy. This event will be part of Earth Day NY.

Everyone is encouraged to continue the search for their inner Burt at home by visiting FindYourBurt.com. The website invites you into Burt’s worldand asks you to discover for yourself pieces of Burt’s simple, nature-loving persona when you “Burtify” your image using an augmented reality tool. The real-time tool modifies elements of Burt on your image based on your eco-motives. The Burt possibilities are endless and so are the ways to love the Earth. This April, visit FindYourBurt.com to learn more about how Burt’s Bees is living The Greater Good™ and discover your own inner (and outer) Burt.

WHO: Burt’s Bees and a Flock of Burt’s

WHAT: Pedal-Powered Smoothies, Burtification and More!

WHERE: New York, NY

WHEN: Thursday, April 22, 2010

Aveda Shampure Soy Wax Candle Giveaway!

If you’re a regular reader of Spoiled Pretty, you probably remember a review I wrote a few weeks back – extolling the virtues of Aveda’s Shampure Soy Wax Candle.
It might be a stretch to call the Shampure Candle the best-smelling candle of all time – considering, well, I’ve only been on this earth to judge for 31 years. But I’m going to give it that title anyway because I dare someone to find me one more wonderfully fragrant. I triple dog dare you.
This candle smells so good, I want to petition Aveda to create a body wash, lotion, perfume and hand cream in the same scent (they already have a Shampure shampoo and conditioner – which are on my “next to try” list).

The aroma of 25 pure flower and plant essences – including certified organic lavender, petitgrain and ylang ylang – soothes the senses. And the candle, housed in a 95% recycled glass holder, burns cleanly and completely for up to 50 hours.

I’m not content to enjoy this candle solo – so, in honor of Earth Day (April 22) and Natural Woman Week, I’ve teamed up with Aveda to share two with you!
Two winners will receive Aveda’s Shampure Soy Wax Candle – and I dare them to tell my challenge my ‘best-smelling candle of all time’ theory.

To enter the giveaway, leave a message in the comments section; make sure to leave your email or another way for me to get in touch, just in case you get lucky. Contest is open to U.S. residents only. The giveaway ends at noon (EST) on Tuesday, April 27, 2010. Good luck!
