You Know You Want This: Vintage Body Spa Giveaway

You have to understand: My people had me in the woods from a Friday to a Sunday, roughing it at a beautiful but dusty campsite where the bathroom was full of bugs and the public shower wasn’t an option. Let’s just say that by the time I dragged myself back to the house from our first big family camping trip, I was in serious need of some pampering.

And, as if the pampering gods heard my cry, a package full of organic, handmade products from Vintage Body Spa was waiting on my doorstep when I got home. Vintage Body Spa owner and product mixologist Alyssa Middleton sent the products to me, Christie of My Life, A Work In Progress, Lorraine of Ask Wifey, and Jennifer of The Baby Makin(g) Machine to try out before and during The BlogRollers BlogHer or Bust Road Trip we took late last month, sweet, generous soul that she is. And I made quick work of putting what was in that box to some good use.

In my box was a cornucopia of scrumptious scrubs, facial masks, and lotions that brought your girl back from the camping dead. The Citrus Blast Whipped Sugar Scrub was absolutely divine—the citrus scent provided the perfect pick-me-up for my tired body, and managed to moisturize and exfoliate without leaving that annoying oily residue all over my body and my shower tiles (score!). The Rhasoul Clay, a centuries old natural clay harvested from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, was absolutely decadent as a facial mask—a much-needed elixir for my seriously stressed out face. And you know the Shea Butter Lotion handled the ash, sans the greasy, slick feeling Shea Butter tends to leave when it’s in its natural state.

In no time at all, it was bye-bye camping funk—hello, scrubbed, rubbed, shined-up and smelling right me!

I know what you’re thinking—you want some, don’t you? Don’t you?! Well, I just happen to have a really nice Vintage Body Spa “Spa to You” Gift Set for a lucky reader. The set includes full-size samples of the following:

Butter Beans (moisturizing bath fizzies)
Suga Lips Lip Balm
Wherever Body Cream (rich body lotion)
Whipped Shea Butter
A few extra goodies from The BlogRollers

All you have to do is leave me a comment... yep that's it. I will give you an extra entry if you friend Vintage Body Spa on Facebook and/or follow her on Twitter. Don't forget to come back here and let me know you did it...m'kay?

The winner will be announced on The ChatterBox Show on FRIDAY AUGUST 7th at 10:00 AM EST. Be sure to tune in!
