Burt's Bees Giveaway

*NOW CLOSED - Thanks to all who entered!*

I wanted to win this giveaway so bad myself that I considered a bazillion different ways to scam y'all out of it but my morals kicked in and I decided not to (1) rent a post box down the street under a different name or (2) have the prize sent to my girlfriends house in Bedford under her name.

Anyways, sadly, I am providing you with the details instead and offering one of you lucky Canadian chicks (sorry American girls, this one's for us only eh!) the chance to win this fabulous giveaway:

$75 Burt's Bees Giveaway

If you haven't heard of Burt's Bees, where the heck have you been? When I think of natural skin care products, they are the first brand that pops into my head! I inevitably end up scoping out there branded yellow and black display every time I hit a Shoppers Drug Mart. It screams to me from the end of the skin care aisle! I can't resist! I am head over heels for their lip balms... the Lip Shimmer in Watermelon is the best tinted lip balm around and it's got this pepperminty flavour that makes your lips kinda cool, it's awesome! My Mom got me addicted and now it's all I wear because I found that other lip balms irritate Jane's skin (from all the kisses) but Burt's Bees doesn't bother her one bit.

Their
Mama Bee Leg and Foot cream is currently moisturizing and cooling my tootsies as we speak... Unfortunately, I didn't discover this cream until after I was done with being preggers but it would have been a God-send on those few hot days in May with my swollen feet! My only beef with Burt's Bees - that I can't seem to find their complete Baby Bee line anywhere and I know it would be awesome for Jane's sensitive skin.

What's even better - Burt's Bees is an earth-friendly company... socially responsible. As Moms we really need to make an effort to scrutinize brands/companies more and choose companies who are do things RIGHT!

Here's the scoop:
The winner will receive $75 worth of Burt's Bees Product - including body wash, body and face creams, lip balm, lip shimmer and shampoo. I am so jealous right now, you have no idea.

Jenny - This is an exciting giveaway! ... Not that I wasn't thrilled about the maternity wardrobe as well. ;) I am obsessed with moisturizing my hands in the winters, so my favourite product would definitely be the Honey and Grapeseed oil hand cream. mmmm ... grapeseed. Xo, Em
