(CLOSED) Join My First Nationwide Valentine Twitter Giveaway – Until Feb.15, 2012

Hey!  This is it, it’s the blog’s first Nationwide Twitter giveaway!  Read the simple mechanics included in this post and find out how to join.  Aha, has it been ages?  Oh my, practically a year since my last giveaway.  I’m a stingy blogger aren’t I?  No, it’s just takes time to accumulate prizes for sufficient loot that I think is giveaway worthy on this blog.

ROW 1 (L-R): Neutrogena Fine Fairness BB Cream, OPI Nail Lacquer in Langham Pink, Diptyque Doson Eau de Toilette and Body Lotion samples, Acca Kappa Wood Comb

ROW 2 (L-R): Watsons Heart Shape Toe Separators, Aveda Invati Shampoo and Conditioner Samples, Haus of Gloi Litchi Milk Tea Bubbling Scrub plus scent samples, Myra VitaGlow Tinted Moisturizer (2 pcs Ivory & Beige)

I’ve got a sizeable firing squad of items here for just one winner!  If you don’t want a walkthrough of all the prize product information just proceed to the very bottom of the full post for the mechanics.  Read more to get a closer look at the prizes, their descriptions, and please kindly pay attention to the pretty simple mechanics, terms, and conditions at the end.


First prize for the WIN is a brand new, unopened bottle of Neutrogena’s Fine Fairness BB Cream, (unboxed to keep shipping fees down).

Neutrogena Fine Fairness BB Cream UV – “Now, combine the immediate fairness of BB Cream and the in-depth whitening powers of FINE FAIRNESS®. The result? A moisturizer that instantly corrects blemishes and works from within to continuously whiten skin. At a special introductory rate of P575 (20% discount from P720) for the month of February, this latest product from NEUTROGENA® is exclusively available at Watsons.”


OPI Nail Lacquer in “Langham Pink” – Blast any doubts about The Langham Hotel’s level of luxury to smithereens with this pretty pink polish.  What kind of hotel has merchandise that includes an O.P.I. polish named after it, for certain not just any hotel.  The pretty cotton candy pink color has a sophisticated veil of shimmer running through it that doesn’t make it metallic but just lifts it.  It reminds me of the current Nicki Minaj OPI pink but I have no confirmation as to whether this and that shade are synonymous.  Mom brought this home from Hong Kong.

Next is a luxe mini atomizer of Diptyque’s Doson Eau de Toilette and a sachet of Diptyque L’ Ombre Dans L’ Eau Lotion.

Diptyque Doson Eau de Toilette – “Mysterious tuberose amid berries and flowers.  A fresh sweetness, like a sea breeze in a pagoda on the banks of the Tonkin Gulf.  Top notes are African orange and Tuberose and base notes are benzoin, iris, and musk.”

Diptyque L’ Ombre Dans L’ Eau Lotion – “It recalls the rustling of petals and the leaves of bushes heavy with fruit in an English garden.”

Everytime I walk into Rustan’s Essenses the Acca Kappa Hair tools kiosk tempts me really badly but I restrain because anyway I have falling hair at the moment and I can’t brush too often until my scalp has recovered.  This is the only luxury brush and comb brand that interests me because of their appearance, form and function and the fact that they’ve been making brushes and combs since 1869.

ACCA KAPPA Beechwood Travel Comb – “Healthy, shining hair is achieved not just by using a good shampoo, but by brushing often with an excellent brush.  Acca Kappa’s quality brushes and combs are the result of 138 years of design experience.  All our wooden brushes and combs are carefully hand finished and made of beechwood.  Long known for its natural anti-static properties, the beechwood used in Acca Kappa brushes and combs come from reforested trees.”

I just blogged about this next prize in the lot.  To me it’s cute, funny, romantic…to you, whatever you want it to be, but it’s guaranteed to do the job of separating your toes for a pedicure really well and with a dash of comic relief.

Watsons Heart Shape Toe Separators – Php30.00 at select SM Watsons outlets nationwide.

These next samples from the Aveda Invati (hair revitalizing range for thinning hair) came with a scalp revitalizing product I’m using at the moment.  This is the shampoo and a conditioner, I’d say the total product amount of the samples is good for 1 wash for medium to long hair and 2 washes for very short hair.  These samples seem tiny but the description of the product tells you exactly what quality you’re getting in these two little tubes.

AVEDA invatiTM Exfoliating Shampoo – “Cleanses, exfoliates and renews the scalp with wintergreen-derived salicylic acid.  Clinically proven to remove the build-up of sebum and product residue that can clog pores and affect healthy hair.  Nourishes dry, tight scalps with extracts from millet seed and milk thistle, equalizing the lipid balance.  Contains densiplexTM-an invigorating blend of Ayurvedic herbs, including turmeric and ginseng.  One of 9 groundbreaking products honored with Gold-level Cradle to Cradle® certification. USE: Massage into wet hair and scalp. Rinse. For best results, follow with invatiTM thickening conditioner and scalp revitalizer.”

AVEDA invatiTM Thickening ConditionerArginine derived from sugar beets and soy protein is clinically proven to restore strength and improve hair elasticity, reducing breakage.  Clinically proven to thicken hair with a blend of guar, palm and rapeseed-derived ingredients.  Organic kukui nut oil helps add natural shine.  Contains densiplexTM-an invigorating blend of Ayurvedic herbs, including turmeric and ginseng.  One of 9 groundbreaking products honored with Gold-level Cradle to Cradle® certification. USE:  Massage into wet hair and scalp after shampooing with invatiTM exfoliating shampoo. Rinse. Towel-dry. For best results, follow with invatiTM scalp revitalizer.

I love you guys soooo much, so I’m going to give up one of my brand new Haus of Gloi Bubbling Scrubs from my last order.  I’ve blogged about these body scrubs by Haus of Gloi and they just make bath time more delightful every single time I use them.

LITCHI MILK TEA Bubbling Scrub– “Tart lychee fruit and black tea met with a splash of coconut milk.


  • TROIKA – “A trinity of soft milks, almond, oat and coconut, lashed with sweet agave nectar and the ethereal scent of clean white.”
  • LAVENDER SUGAR – “Bulgarian and French lavenders with a heaping spoonful of pure muscadovo sugar”

And last but not the least, it needed to be part of this two brand new tubes of Myra VitaGlow Tined Moisturizers in both shades Ivory and Beige.  I’ve just recently reviewed these tinted moisturizers and can’t get over how Ivory was a perfect color match for me.

MYRA VitaGlow Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 – “Gives a hint of color, evens out skintone with natural coverage.  Contains minerals to give your skin a healthy glow.  Enriched with Vitamin E to help keep skin soft, healthy, and young-looking.  With SPF 15 to help protect against the sun’s harmful rays.  Dermatologist tested so it’s mild, safe, and gentle for everyday use.”
