Giveaway: $50 to Apothica! CLOSED

Friends (yes, you all are my friends - you don't have a say in this), I have a giveaway you are going to love. You want to win this... trust me!

The lovely people over at Apothica want to give one of you $50 credit to Apothica.com, SkinCareRx.com, or SkinBotanica.com! Yeah, $50 to any of those sites! Apothica is an online beauty boutique that carries cosmetics, skin care, body care, and aromatherapy products - including natural and organic products! For those of you in Salt Lake City, their retail store is located near you. So enter this giveaway, then get over there and check them out!


Apothica carries some of the most coveted brands in beauty (or, at least, brands that I covet). A few of my favorites are Nars, Chanel, Stila, and Smashbox - just to name a few (I could keep going...).

When it comes to makeup, I'm not a one brand kind of gal. I usually have a product or two from several different companies, but one brand that I do have several of their products is Smashbox. I have a few of their products that I use on a nearly daily basis. What are they?

Layer Lash Primer, Blush Rush in Passion, and Photo Finish Foundation Primer


I love all these products (and others of Smashbox's), but the Blush Rush in Passion takes the cake. I have a three blushes that are my "go-to" blushes and this is one of them. It's the perfect blush. It's a perfect pink - a light hand for just a dusting and a heavier hand for a more dramatic look. And it's a matte pink which is great for during the day! Seriously, one of my favorite blushes. I've written on it before!

GIVEAWAY RULES:
Mandatory:
1. Follow my blog
2. Visit Apothica and comment to let us know what you want to buy!

Y'all, that's FIVE chances you have to win this giftcard! 

The giveaway ends two weeks from today on April 22 at midnight CST.
The giveaway is open internationally as long as Apothica ships to your country.


THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. A WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED MONDAY!

I've never actually been to the Apothica website. It's awesome! They have so much stuff!

Since I'm 30 now, I've been on the hunt for an eye cream. I've never used one regularly, so I've tried a couple of samples, but I think this is the one I want - Fresh Repair and Restore Eye Balm.

http://skincare.apothica.com/Fresh-Repair-and-Restore-Eye-Balm.html

I haven't tried it, but it sounds like it has amazing natural ingredients in it, and I've read lots of good stuff about it. So that's what I would buy if I won. =)

I "liked" your FB page, and I'm going to tweet about your giveaway right now!!
