Olay+Total+Effects+7 in 1+Advanced+Anti Aging+Body+Wash+1 Giveaway: Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Advanced Anti Aging Body Wash

Lemme ask you a question. How many anti-aging products are in your bathroom cabinet right now? Okay, humor me by answering another question. Of those anti-aging serums, creams and treatments – how many are for your body and how many are for your face?

A-ha! Exactly as I thought. When it comes to a woman’s appearance, certain parts of the body (like the neck, décolletage, hands, arms and knees) are most prone to visible signs of aging. Yet most women spend a disproportionate amount of time and money caring for their facial skin. This isn’t to say that you shouldn’t take care of your face; it is the first thing that others see when they meet you. But a well-maintained face cannot disguise your age if your body is looking like straight-up Crypt Keeper.

Luckily for you, me and the millions of women who have been putting all of their proverbial eggs in one anti-aging basket, Olay is launching the new Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash. The body wash is an all-in-one product that provides seven age-fighting benefits for the body:

  • Improves elasticity
  • Relieves dryness
  • Deeply moisturizes
  • Brightens dull skin
  • Evens skin tone
  • Smoothes rough skin
  • Minimizes appearance of dry lines

Olay+Total+Effects+7 in 1+Advanced+Anti Aging+Body+Wash+1 Giveaway: Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Advanced Anti Aging Body WashOlay recently conducted a study in which the impact of body skin’s appearance was explored in relations to perception of age. The study concluded that:

  • Regardless of the appearance of facial skin, if body skin is maintained well a woman can look up to 10 years younger;
  • Body skin is just as important as facial skin for positive age perception; and
  • Skin care technology for anti-aging is proven to benefit body skin.

Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash (available in two formulas: Deep Penetrating Moisture and Exfoliate and Replenish) won’t show up in stores until February 2010, but I got my hands on some advanced samples, and they’ve become staples in my shower. I particularly love how the Deep Penetrating Moisture quenches my winter-ravaged skin; the creamy formula and rich lather is a nice treat. The smell is also divine, subtly clinging to the skin post-shower.

This week, one lucky Spoiled Pretty reader will get the chance to shower their way to younger, more radiant skin. Olay will provide the winner with two bottles of the Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash (one of each formula). The winner will write a review of the product, which will be included in an upcoming Spoiled Pretty post.

To enter the contest, leave a message in the comments section. Contest open to U.S. residents only. The giveaway ends at noon (EST) on Tuesday, January 26, 2010. Good luck!

Lancôme La Laque Fever Giveaway Winners

Lancome La Lacque Fever Lip Shine Lancôme La Laque Fever Giveaway WinnersCongrats to the winners of the Lancôme La Laque Fever giveaway!

Kellie Butler, Holly Fagen, Emily Meade, Sultana Shoshani and Mary Valleau have won the Untamed Plum shade. Dana Bunker, Audrey Cheng, Charlotte Vellan Cobb, Jessica Mosnik and Lisa Smith have won the Plum Wave color.

Many thanks to Lancôme for hooking these ladies up with La Laque Fever Ultimate Lasting Full Color Lipshine, a lipstick/lipgloss hybrid that delivers concentrated color and multidimensional shine that lasts for 6 (touch up free) hours.

Stay tuned for the next giveaway, which will be announced shortly.

Lancôme La Laque Fever Giveaway

Lancome+La+Lacque+Fever+Lip+Shine Lancôme La Laque Fever GiveawayI’m not really a fan of long-lasting lipglosses. Sure, they hang around longer than your average gloss. However, ironically, most end up looking quite dry and matte – settling into the lines on your lips.

But since Lancôme sent me a sample of La Laque Fever Ultimate Lasting Full Color Lipshine to try, I’ve changed my tune completely. Lancôme has succeeded where many brands have fallen short.

Somehow, Lancôme created a lipstick/lipgloss hybrid that delivers concentrated color and multidimensional shine that lasts for 6 (touch up free) hours. An ingenious heart-shaped applicator perfectly gets into the corners of the mouth and helps to sculpt lip contours beautifully.

I am so enamored with this product that I can’t enjoy it alone. Which is why I’m partnering with Lancôme for a giveaway. We’re giving away ten tubes of La Laque Fever: 5 in Plum Wave (below left) and 5 in Untamed Plum (below right).

On Monday, January 18, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. residents.

LOFT Blog Wars & Gift Card Giveaway!

loft+sequin+tank LOFT Blog Wars & Gift Card Giveaway!Holiday time is my favorite time of the year. I love scurrying from store to store, playing Santa and getting the must-haves on everyone’s list. I’m a present-wrapping superstar; if there were levels, I’d be a third degree black belt. And the holiday specials at Starbucks (Caramel Brulee Latte, Eggnogg Latte and Peppermint Mocha are my faves!) make the season even sweeter.

But throwing together last-minute ensembles for holiday shindigs? That’s when my inner Scrooge comes out. Here’s the problem – and you can probably relate. You hate everything in your closet; it either doesn’t fit properly, or it’s not festive enough for the party’s dress code. On the other hand, there’s a recession going on and you can’t justify buying an entire outfit for one holiday get-together. Makes you wanna say “bah humbug” and just RSVP with regrets.

Luckily, LOFT is here to rescue you from holiday fashion disaster.

loft+holiday LOFT Blog Wars & Gift Card Giveaway!In case you haven’t heard, Ann Taylor Loft is now LOFT. They’ve re-named and re-branded the company, and upped the style ante. And one of the many great things about LOFT that I love is that they’ve got petites! Can I get a hallelujah, shorties?

Anyway, LOFT has some amazing pieces that you can pair with something already in your closet – to create a chic, festive outfit without breaking the bank. For example, pair this Sequin Sparkle Tank with a pair of jean or black pants and layer a blazer or cardigan on top. This Sequin Scarf is only $29.50 and will jazz up just about anything in your wardrobe. What about that go-to little black dress your friends have seen you wear countless times? Take that dress from wah-wah-wah to wow with one of LOFT’s statement necklaces. My favorite is the Clear Gem Bib Necklace with Black Chain – I can think of 10 “new” outfits I could create with this accessory alone!

To celebrate their new name and image, LOFT is having a contest called Blog Wars. Starting today at 4pm, visit LOFT’s Facebook fan page (here’s the link to the actual poll), and vote for your favorite blog (hint: your favorite blog is Spoiled Pretty). On Friday afternoon, the blogger with the most votes wins a $500 LOFT gift card. Child, you know mama loves to shop…so help me out here!

To get you motivated, I’m doing a giveaway too! Go to LOFT’s website and find a festive holiday item. Then come back here and tell me (in the comments) how you’d pair that item with something already in your closet to create a holiday party ensemble. On Friday evening, I’ll award one of the commenters with a $100 LOFT gift card!

Okay, so remember to become a Facebook Fan of LOFT…then vote for Spoiled Pretty. Tell your friends to do the same. It’s war, people…and I came to win. Help a blogger, won’t cha?

Fang-tastic New Moon-Inspired Giveaway Sponsored by Demitasse Jewelry

demitasse Fang tastic New Moon Inspired Giveaway Sponsored by Demitasse JewelryYou’ve read all four books in the Twilight saga. Your Twilight DVD is in such heavy rotation, you fear you might wear it out and consider buying a backup. You bought advance tickets to see New Moon on opening day, then returned to the movie theater later that week to make sure you didn’t miss anything. You know the date that Eclipse hits theaters. And every time you’re in a store with one of those life-size cardboard cutouts of Robert Pattinson, you’re tempted to snatch it and make like a tree.

If any of the aforementioned statements describe you, congrats…you’re a Twihard. It’s nothing to be embarrassed about…I’m a Twihard too, and this is a safe place. In fact, this is the place – if the Cullen Crest t-shirts just aren’t your thang, and you’re looking for a more unique way to pledge your allegiance to Team Edward.
