Back-to-School Giveaway: Pamper Yourself with The Body Shop Coconut Products

by Tara Kuczykowski on August 21, 2009 · 531 comments


Tune in all week for hot Back-To-School Giveaways. I’ve got some great prizes for the kids, with a couple of special prizes to pamper mom!!! Look for a new 48-hour giveaway each morning and each afternoon, and be sure to check out all of the current giveaways for other great prizes!

Getting kids ready to go back to school is hard work, and today's giveaway will help you take some time out to pamper yourself with a set of Coconut products from The Body Shop!

Mmm, if you love the scent of coconut as much as I do, I think you'll love the latest line of products from The Body Shop made with organic virgin coconut oil. I was especially pleased to see that the purchase of these products supports small, organic coconut farmers in Samoa. I'm a big believer in supporting small businesses whenever possible.

I recently had the opportunity to try these for myself, and I absolutely loved them. All day long I'm reminded of warm, sandy beaches and crashing ocean waves (minus the skimboards, LOL). I know smelling like suntan lotion may not appeal to some of you, but I assure you these are not too overpowering, and it's a cleaner scent.

Coconut Shower Cream – This product foamed up just enough and smells heavenly!

Coconut Body Scrub – I just love body scrubs, and this one did not disappoint in the least. It's not so greasy that it makes the shower floor too slick, and it's not as gritty and harsh as other products I've tried.

Coconut Body Butter – This is probably my favorite of the products I tried. This thick and luxurious body butter is perfect for parched summer skin, and it doesn't leave your skin feeling tacky for hours after you apply it like some I've used.

Coconut Shimmer Lotion – I was slightly skeptical about the shimmer in this product. After all, I'm definitely not 16 anymore. However, it turned out to be very subtle, and it's kind of a fun way to add a little something extra for a night out in a cute summery dress.

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a prize package worth over $70 that includes:

:: Coconut Body Butter
:: Coconut Body Scrub
:: Coconut Shower Cream
:: Coconut Shimmer Body Lotion

A warm bubble bath, some music and no kiddos! ahhhhh

Hi! Well, the most ideal way for me to get pampered would be to go to a nail salon and get my nails done....but since that gets very expensive quickly, I usually give myself a pedicure. A good soak in a massage soak tub with some salt crystals to scrub seals the deal for me!
This is an awesome giveaway! :)

Thanks for the giveaway :D Um, if I have luck my pampering is a hot cup of tea (while it is still hot) and five minutes to sit - isn't that the story for all moms? :D

Oh I could desp use this as I have a lot of health prob & don't get to treat myself often, but when I do, a bath/hot soak is great, & I even need help w that, due to my conditions;) but that is ok, makes the time worth it....

23 Liz August 23, 2009 at 8:46 am

About once a week I give myself an at home facial. I don't have time for much of anything else and it is always nice to have that time away.

I like to light a candle and sit down with a cup of coffee and read.

27 Melanie August 23, 2009 at 9:57 am

My favorite way is to steal away to the local coffee shop to sit with a hot cup of coffee and to just be alone for a bit.

31 Melinda August 23, 2009 at 11:06 pm

My favorite indulgence would be chocolate and a pedicure!!
