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?

My favorite way to pamper myself is to sneak away (let hubby watch the 3 kiddos) and have a nice hot bath. I will usually get a cup of tea or glass of wine and also a good book to really relax and enjoy my bath.

It involves one or more of the following:

A Good Book
Chocolate anything
Peace and quiet

One is enough, but if I can get more than one at a time, than I'm REALLY happy!

Take the time to shave my legs, efoiliate my feet, rub good lotion all over - all at one shower time!

This may sound odd but my favorite way to pamper myself is to get some computer time (for me, only me!) when everyone is asleep and no one wants to use the computer for just a minute!!

I have a japanese soaking tub in my master bathroom that I like to escape to with a good book and some grapefruit essential oil bath salts. I lock my bedroom door and my bathroom door so that my kids can't bang on it and disturb my much needed retreat.
