Giveaway #8: Bestsellers from Carol's Daughter

Hello ladies,
Welcome to week eight of SYB's "Free at Last" Giveaway Extravaganza! The rules, for the latecomers: Every Monday, I'll ask a trivia question from SYB's archives, and if you know the answer, leave it in the "comments" section. On Wednesday, I'll RANDOMLY pick a reader from the correct answers to win that week's free product giveaway. Here goes...

THE PRIZE: A trio of bestselling products from Carol's Daughter, including Mimosa Hair Honey, Almond Cookie Bar Soap, and Bring in the Moisture Face Wash ($47.50 value)



Carol's Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey ($15.50) is simply one of my favorite hair products of ALL TIME. It's a delicious, citrus-scented herbal pomade that smoothes fly-aways and frizzies like nobody's business. Plus, it contains sage to stimulate the scalp and help with flakes (I hate the word "dandruff"), and nettles that assuage scalp irritation (fabulous after a particularly harsh relaxer). You'll be obsessed.


Almond Cookie Bar Soap ($12) is downright delish. This handmade soap contains tons of glycerin, which leaves skin feeling cashmere-soft. The best part? It's infused with a knee-weakingly yummy blend of marzipan and musk (very unisex...keep it away from your man). Almost edible.


Bring in the Moisture Gentle Face Wash ($20) is a super-gentle foaming cleanser blended with ylang-ylang and patchouli essential oils. So invigorating and tingly-good, it'll definitely perk you up after a night of carousing and canoodling. Removes makeup, too--including mascara!

AND NOW, THE SYB TRIVIA QUESTION: In a January '08 post, I discuss an irritating article that ran in the New York Times Style section about me and my beauty blogging sisthren. Name AT LEAST TWO of the beauty books behind my head in the corresponding photo. Good luck!

xo,
Tia

Hi!

One of the books behind you is the "Beauty of Color" by Iman, and another is "Fine Beauty" by Sam Fine. I like that photo and the well placed beauty books!

I have a few Carol's Daughter faves, and I've yet to try some of the products you listed! So I'm excited about the chance to win! Have a great week.
