Christmas Advent Competition 8: Wholefoods Winter Hamper

So week 2 of the giveaways is underway! Christmas is all about having fun and you should know by now it’s also the time of year I love to say a big thank you to everyone who reads the blog or follows my ramblings on social media. And what better way to do that than with competitions! I’m in a very lucky position as a blogger that I get to try a lot of exciting samples every year and this is always a nice way to try and treat as many of you as possible to a little makeup related treat! So, as with every year, each competition will have two prizes – one for you and one for someone you want to pick (lover, family, friend, pet or just be greedy and keep both yourself).  So keep an eye on the blog every day over the next two weeks as each morning I’ll have a brand new competition up from an amazing brand!

So Day 8 comes from Wholefoods who are going to set you and a friend up with some healthy, natural brands to treat yourselves to over Christmas!

Up for grabs is a healthy hamper for you and a friend filled with all the goodies above!!

Optiat: Siblings William and Anna Brightman founded Optiat in April 2016, after a series of events led to them conceiving the idea of a body scrub created with used coffee grounds.

Vanilla Velvet: Scrub up silky smooth for a blissful night in. A blend of used Arabica coffee grounds and vanilla extract, our Vanilla Velvet helps you relax and unwind after a long day. RSP €12.95.

Purifying and exfoliating face mask: Deep cleanse your way to a clearer, more radiant complexion.

It can be used to help us get through any stressful situations, from last-minute exam or interview nerves, to the aftermath of an accident or bad news. RSP €12.30.

To enter, simply click through to the Twitter link below or if you don’t have (or don’t want to use) Twitter, leave me a comment here telling me who you’d nominate for the second prize!

Competition is open to Ireland and UK and ends 6th December at midnight. Good luck!
