CLOSED: My Body Shop Banana-Split Beauty Nationwide Giveaway – The Blog’s “Yummiest” Treats yet! ‘Til June 25

I haven’t seen a giveaway as “yummy” as this just yet.  I thought up a concept for a NATIONWIDE giveaway to make it more fun to present visually (I like doing that) and I have been craving and missing something I tasted when I was in elementary, when the Baskin Robbins Ice Cream parlor was still at Alabang Town Center, their classic, never underwhelming Banana Split.  Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry ice cream flanked by bananas.  I thought a Banana Split would be a great concept for a giveaway considering I had these Body Shop goodies on hand, they complete the dish sans the cherry on top.  This giveaway will close on the evening of June 25th and the mechanics are at the end of this post.

From Left: The Body Shop Banana Conditioner, Strawberry Body Butter, Chocomania Body Scrub, and coming soon to stores in other scents as well, their Vanilla Body Mist. 

Sorry, can’t get that dessert out of my head, but I’m telling you all these Body Shop products are really lovely.  Read more for the giveaway mechanics and my thoughts on the prizes.


I’m extremely  fond of The Body Shop’s Banana Conditioner which is a worldwide favorite and for example, the *Vanilla Body Mist, if you happen to think might be boring on its own think again, it’s lovely.  If you prefer you can lightly layer it over your favorite fragrance for a hint of vanilla warmth.

Chocolate lovers just might have to avoid drooling in the shower while using the Chocomania body scrub and the strawberry body butter is a fruity delight to use on clean feet and work-weary hands, it may be a bit too rich on some days but overall it’s still a yummy addition to this Banana Split bunch.  Now, here are the giveaway mechanics!

*PRESS SAMPLE – Vanilla Body Mist (not available in stores yet)

    It’s past midnight na at bigla akong nagutom sa pics mo above 😀 Kahit rainy season na ngayon, i still crave for ice creams specially banana split 🙂 Di ko maexplain, basta yun bang feeling na contentment whenever i eat ice creams 🙂 Makagawa nga bukas ng banana split, hehe 🙂

    Btw, i haven’t tried those The Body Shop’s products pero sa name palang nila, mukhang masarap na, ala banana split 🙂 I’m sure i’ll smell yummy using those 🙂
