As part of the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival, Goodies for Mom is hosting a "Beating the Winter Beauty Blues Gift Pack Giveaway". The gift pack includes some of the great products I have had the opportunity to try recently:
- Mimiccolor Cosmetic Hail Color Touch-up
MIMICCOLOR is a temporary root touch-up designed to extend the life of permanent hair color . Perfect for all facial areas including hairline and roots, eyebrows, beards and mustaches. MIMICCOLOR will never melt off due to perspiration, and easily washes out with a shampoo. I was skeptical of this, but I tried it and really does cover gray very well. It's like cover-up for your hair! The creme goes on with a brush in minutes and it doesn't rub off like I was worried. Ok, I have to admit I'm a little behind on coloring so I might have be there all day with my root grow if I used it every day but it worked great on small patches and gray and I would definitely use it for special occasions or when my roots and gray is not quite so widespread. It really is for touch-up only.
- SoftBaby and SoftHands Sample Sizes from SoftressTM
Softress is a New York City-based company dedicated to producing safe natural products for the care of dry, sensitive skin and dry hair. I tried the Deep Moisture - Winter Formula for Skin and Hair. I particularly liked it on my frizzy mop of curly hair. I put a few squirts on after my shower and combed it through. It left my hair smooth and frizz free. I didn't even have to use it every day. I did it once and my hair felt great for several days. Coupon Code: "GOODIES" gets you a 15% discount through the end of april 2009.
- Sharon Bolton Perfume Oil - LUV
Sharon Bolton has incorporated soft exotic florals, sparkling citrus, and a tropical flare into her hand-blended perfume oils. LUV is combination of rare pink gardenia, lush Hawaiian white flowers, and a hint of creamy vanilla with a delicate whisper of white musk. All the scents I tried were extremely light and very pleasant. Just inhaling the scent was relaxing, and I was reminded of a beautiful Hawaiian sunset. Even the packaging is beautiful and peaceful.
- Sample sizes of All The Better To Kiss You With Organic Lip Balm and TRESemme® Hair Spray, and a Sleep Mask
The products are part of the Minimus.biz's The New Pampered Mommy gift kit. Minimus.biz is the leader in all things travel-sized and individual sized.

- Peacekeeper LipPaint and LipGloss
PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics is the first cosmetic line to give all of its after tax distributable profits to Women's Health Advocacy and Human Rights issues. PeaceKeeper’s Lip Paints were nominated as finalist for “Best Lip Product of the Year” by Cosmetics Executive Woman (CEW). These lip paint was so incredibly smooth to apply and felt great on. Plus it's 75% organic. I also love their natural nail polish remover. The PeaceKeeper® Eco-Easy™ Nail Polish Remover is made from natural fermented sugars and scented with rosemary and spearmint. It so gentle on your nails. None of those harsh chemicals.
- Belli Acne Clearing Facial Wash
This is a safe acne solution for use during pregnancy. The Belli Acne Clearing Facial Wash uses lactic acid to lift away dirt, oil and bacteria, promoting clean and blemish-free skin. Belli's baby lotion and washes are so gentle. They have a light fresh scent that any mother will love to smell as she cuddles her little one. It's very subtle but clean-smelling. They offer a great gift set that would make a wonderful shower gift.
