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

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

To enter, leave a comment with your favorite way to pamper yourself. Do you have a chocolate stash that no one else knows about? Do you sneak away for a bubble bath with a good book? Do you crank up the music when you're in the car by yourself and sing along?

+++++++++++++++

I love catching 30 minutes or so just to be in the bathroom uninterrupted for a shower, shave, and mini pamper "marathon". It's quite a treat, as it happens so infrequently...

8 Amy L August 22, 2009 at 9:26 am

I pamper myself by taking a long a bath with dead sea bath salts, a magazine to read while I soak, a cup of herbal tea, and a favorite CD (Michael Buble is a fav).

22 Anne Van Hoose August 22, 2009 at 11:47 am

To calm myself from the stress during the weeks, I take a hot steamy shower which is more effective than baths, to me at least, because it eases sore muscles from workout, and then make a big cup of celestial seasonings tea or some green tea soy dream ice cream (really really smooth, creamy and soothing) and turn on one of my favorite black and white movie. You know, oldies, but goodies!
Try that and then go to bed with a fan turned on low [but not pointing at you] . In the morning have a glass of organge or lemon lime "Emergen-C" fizzy vitamin C packets that taste Oh-so good and gives you so good combat against colds and sicknesses we might catch somehow from school!!

33 Elisa August 22, 2009 at 1:13 pm

Just confirmed email subscription. Yay!

34 Emily August 22, 2009 at 1:35 pm

I wish I could sneak away to a bath. Taking a nice hot shower is what I get.

37 Diane G August 22, 2009 at 1:57 pm

Sometimes I make my self a cup of tea, set a timer, and let myself read for 30 minutes. Making myself sit down and take it easy is so necessary and sometimes I just forget to do it!
