Giveaway! Softsoap Vineyard Escape Relaxation Package!

Yep, it’s still the giveaway season and I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon. Hope you beautiful people don’t mind. As y’all know – I am a lover of fragrance-free and naturally-fragranced products. I’ve been this way for a few years and it’s not because I don’t like smelling pretty, because I do. But, I’ve found that heavily scented fragrances not only make me nauseous at times but can contribute to my horrible migraines. And so I got rid of my of bottles of eau de toilette, super smelly lotions and soaps and swapped them for products without scents. Which, okay, is not fun but I’m in a happier place without dealing with overwhelming scents.

However, I know most women enjoy pretty smells and that’s why I continue to review and feature products that I’m sure most ladies would love. Like this Softsoap Vineyard Escape body wash.

I love love LOVE when body washes have a scrub built-in. In this case, this body wash has exfoliating fruit seeds (I wonder what fruit…) and they do a fantastic job at cleansing the skin while exfoliating it. This body wash is all about indulging in the moment. Y’know…forgetting that you’ve got a thousand emails to check, dinner to cook and doggies to walk. The bathtub is a sacred place and I’m all for truly relaxing up in there.

Scent-wise, I don’t have too many aversions to this one. It’s got a sweet smell that doesn’t linger for hours at a time. It’s a refreshing body wash for those who have an affinity towards fruity fragrances.

Softsoap is going to gift one Clumps of Mascara reader with the following:

-Softsoap Vineyard Escape Scrub
-A sweet smellin’ candle
-A plush loofah

Yes girls ‘n guys…it’s a nice little package for you to take a few minutes to indulge yourself. How can you win this? I’ll be choosing one U.S.-based reader who has left a comment on any blog post in the past 2 weeks. It’s that easy! If you’ve been a commentin’, you’re already covered.

I’ll be announcing the winner on Wednesday, August 22nd!

Good lucky, duckies!

Softsoap’s Strawberry Smoother. Yummers!

I know. I just HAD to do it. It wouldn’t be Clumps of Mascara if I didn’t do something silly like toss a bottle of body wash in a blender. But seriously…when I first laid eyes on this body wash, I was all “OMG, I need a smoothie STAT!” Y’all KNOW how much I love smoothies. That said, I am loving the concept behind this kid.

Sweet, uh? Retailing for less than $5, this body was is perfect for gals who desire only a bit of of fragrance after bathing. I love that it isn’t long-lasting as I am not a fan of body washes whose scents last alllll day. While my skin is a little too sensitive right now to give this a whirl, I will definitely be stashing this for the winter months. That is, if I can stop myself from using it as a handwash.

I am picky about what I put on my skin so I was hoping that this was low on the synthetic ingredient side.

But it wasn’t. And yeah, I did have high hopes because it looks as if many commercial drugstore products have gone green-er and have omitted parabens, sulfates, dyes and what have you. Here’s to hoping that Softosoap jumps on that bandwagon!

Still…it’s a great soap. And did I mention that there are what looks to be actual strawberry seeds in there?

Coooool! All of this talk about strawberry smoothy-stuffs has me itching to make a smoothie myself. Ooooh blenderrr….
