*Congratulations to Franca Zanovello, winner of the January skinnyskinny bath & body oil giveaway!*
I've had a wonderful start to the new year on Beauty Is Wellness, with lots of new readers and clients, plus fresh beauty articles and posts around the web. To celebrate, I wanted to do another little giveaway (not quite as enormous as the December mega-giveaway, but lovely just the same!): a bottle of botanically-infused Lemongrass Organic Bath & Body Oil from Brooklyn-based natural beauty brand skinnyskinny!
I love skinnyskinny's organic bath and body oil range because it's so incredibly nourishing for your skin. The ingredient list is perfect: certified organic jojoba oil (infused with skin-healing and soothing chamomile, rose, lavender and calendula), hemp seed oil, rosehip oil, sesame oil, coconut oil and borage oil, plus one or two essential oils for natural fragrance (the lemongrass scent uses lemongrass essential oil). You can apply it as a moisturizer, or add a bit to your bath for a lovely, invigorating soak.
To enter the to win a bottle of this fantastic skinnyskinny lemongrass oil, become a fan of Beauty Is Wellness on Facebook, or leave a comment on this post telling me about your favorite natural moisturizer. Do both, get entered twice (two is the limit, though)! If you're already a Facebook fan, you're automatically entered, but you can always boost your chances by leaving a comment here too. You must enter by next Wednesday, January 25th, and the winner will be contacted Thursday January 26th.
Allow me to gush just a little more about the lovely prize: If you're not familiar with lemongrass, it's an aromatic, Indian grass that is often used in Asian cooking. Lemongrass essential oil is a diuretic, and it's thought to have anti-cellulite effects. Its scent is also an instant mood-booster!
We weren't even planning on having a Lemongrass Body Oil, but a recent trip to Asia convinced us otherwise. Lemongrass has all the merits of an uplifting citrus scent, but there's just something else there that gives it more depth. Some lemongrass essential oils can smell too sweet, but not this one. It's perfect. Really. Our Organic Body Oil is is incredibly nourishing, moisturizing, and non-greasy. We delicately steep chamomile, roses, lavender, and calendula in our proprietary blend of oils. Then, we do it all over again (double-infused) so that this organic body oil is absolutely packed with goodness. A little goes a long way.
Skinnyskinny also makes organic bath & body oil in four other scents: cardamom, lavender & clary sage, chamomile, and rosemary bergamot. Splurge on one ($30) at skinnyskinny.com, and check out their equally-amazing soaps and dry shampoos while you're there!
