"Cleaning Out My Beauty Stash" Giveaway!
Sometimes, a Product Junkie just looks at all her stuff she's been saving up and says,
"That's enough! It has to go NOW!"
That's where I'm at.
What is all this stash I speak of?
Well, when you subscribe to beauty boxes, you love the surprise, the gift that keeps on giving, the new brands you've never seen before, the sample sizes that enable you to try stuff out without sinking $30 into a full size.
you also end up with stuff that simply doesn't work for your skin type...
colors that just don't suit...
duplicates of items you know you will never get around to using...
and sometimes, stuff you're just not interested in.
I also purchased a few things to put in the Prize Packages, as well.
It's also important to note that the 1st Place Winner will not only receive the prize package you see below, they will also be given a few of my "Not New" items. These are things that I may have swatched hygienically in order to blog or video about the product, but is safe to be used by someone else. For example, eye shadow and blush that was swatched with a clean brush, and that you can spray with alcohol upon receipt to ensure for yourself that it is sanitary. Also, there are 2 squeeze tube products that I squeezed a little out of to swatch, and it in no way has been contaminated, but it is clearly "Not New". Also, a few of the nail polishes from the various prizes packages have been swatched on my nails for blogging purposes, too.
Got that? Good.
If you DON'T LIKE THIS ASPECT OF THE GIVEAWAY, YOU CAN CHOOSE NOT TO PARTICIPATE (or you could just get rid of the "Not New" stuff and nail polish if you happen to win). There's your disclosure...now moving on...
This time, I just happen to have some great Paula's Choice CLEAR acne skincare sets (MSRP $13) and a Coppertone Sunscreen spray I got free from BzzAgent.com that I can add in, as well.
So THAT'S where the stash comes from.

You want beauty products and I want more readers.
Before we get to the nuts & bolts of the giveaway, let me take a moment to tell you about Paula's Choice (PC).
I'm a huge fan.
PC has a Beautypedia at their site, with ratings for products from all kinds of brands. Paula started telling people the truth about beauty products years ago. Like the ridiculousness of buying an expensive face cream that comes in a pretty little tub, yet the air-sensitive ingredients are basically rendered useless once you open it, due to contact with air, not to mention the acne-causing germs you put into it repeatedly by digging in. She began telling us that we are inflaming our skin by putting fragrances all over it. That the tingle we feel from products with mint/eucalyptus oil in it is actually a skin irritant, no matter how much we've been conditioned to believe we are "deep cleaning" when we feel that tingle...no matter whether it's "natural" or not. So I have great respect for her and her company, in general.
Moving on in my story...
So, I had been having acne issues since about 39-ish, including some cystic acne (never had that till then?!). I decided to trust PC and use some of her products from her CLEAR Acne Care line. It took about 2-3 weeks till I saw changes in my skin. First, just general acne began to clear up, but I still had roughly another month of cystic acne to endure. By the third month using PC, the cystic acne disappeared. I still occasionally have small flare-ups of general acne (hormonal, I'm sure), but my skin is VASTLY improved. I use the line and have deep appreciation for the changes it has made in my skin.
So, when BzzAgent offered me the chance to "buzz" to others about the PC CLEAR line, I jumped at the chance. I already LOVE PC products, and especially the CLEAR line. Now I have a chance to really share them with my readers. Yay!
Each PC Set in the prize packages is valued at $13. I got mine free from BzzAgent.
I also got the Coppertone spray that is in one of the prize packages free from BzzAgent. I believe in taking care of your skin, including sunscreen. Coppertone makes a great, convenient sunscreen. One of you gets to have one of those, as well..
So, now, on to the giveaway!
