Giveaway #1: Pantene Nature Fusion Collection

Hey muchachitas,
Yayyy! Today kicks off the first week of SYB's "Free at Last" Giveaway Extravaganza! In case you missed my last post, allow me to explain. Because the economy is kicking all of our behinds, I'm doing ONE super-fabulous product giveaway a week until the end of May! Every Monday, I'll ask you a trivia question from SYB's archives, and the first reader to answer correctly wins that week's prize (I convinced all my FAVORITE BRANDS to participate, so trust me, these giveaways are SICK!). Without further ado, here's my first "Free at Last" contest!

THE PRIZE: Pantene’s new Pro-V Nature Fusion Smooth Vitality collection

THE DETAILS: Every savvy beauty chick I know is obsessed with Pantene, because A.) it honestly gives you the glossiest, most expensive-looking hair, and B.) the products cost, like, nothing. Two qualities I love in a haircare line. And now, the Pantene smarties have truly outdone themselves with their new Nature Fusion collection of shampoos and conditioners. They contain all kinds of good-for-you botanicals that deeply condition and nourish your hair while protecting it from damage--but in the gentlest possible way (ie, no gross product buildup). Here's what you'll get: Pantene Pro-V Nature Fusion Smooth Vitality Shampoo ($2.99), a grapeseed and bamboo-infused cleanser that obliterates frizz; Pantene Pro-V Nature Fusion Moisture Balance Conditioner ($2.99), which hydrates fried hair with aloe vera; Pantene Pro-V Nature Fusion Smooth Vitality Conditioner ($2.99), which tames flyaways with nourishing avocado; and Pantene Pro-V Nature Fusion Moisture Balance Shampoo ($2.99), a cassia and calendula-blended formula that protects wet hair from the damage caused by brushes and combs.

AND NOW, THE SYB TRIVIA QUESTION: In a July '06 post, I persuaded legendary celeb makeup artist Sam Fine to reveal his favorite products. What was the fifth product?

Good luck, lovelies!!


For my SYB Babes who asked me to upload a La Lina pic with every post, Merry Christmas! I can't promise you EVERY post, but you will be seeing more of my peanut because, well, I have no self-control. This is La Lina's 3-month-old sitting with her BFFs, Lucy and Teddy (I take one every month!).

Hey Tia!! are you going to be giving anything away that us "Nappy & Happy" SYB babes can use? I also wanted some advice on what product I should use to even out my skin, make my pores appear smaller (all over my face,) a chemical peel is too extreme for my skin so I was wondering is there a less harsh way to even out my face. Thanks!!!

I am mad late (shucks)... Need to check this sooner! Looks like my lil Jackson may have a girlfriend (Lina may like them older he just turned 1 :-)

BTW LUXE_DivaSoulSistaHuneyChile: Nappy Curly Gurls can use Pantene! I am a curly girl and love it as well! Give it a try! Also on the pores are you getting extraction facials? Sometimes it helps or if you do it too much it may enlarge the pores... I love Mario Badescu for facials (not a spa to relax just in and out get it done facials... many celebs go there and it is kinda resonable).
