Can You Get Hooked On Lip Balm? and Win a $50 Gift Certificate From Sephora




As I’ve mentioned before, besides blogging, and makeup, my absolute favorite thing on earth is reading any books related to beauty. It’s a bit of an obsession. I was recently sent the book Can You Get Hooked on Lip Balm? and this book is a def must-read if you’re a beauty junkie like me.  The book is written by the creators of www.thebeautybrains.com. This is a website that is written by a team of  scientist who answer beauty questions and try to debunk many  beauty myths. The book is divided into Hair questions, Makeup questions, Skin questions, and then the Beauty Industry. It’s such an easy read and  I learned so much and agreed with them on so many things. Plus they answered a few questions that I always wondered about, but I was way  too embarrassed to ask.

1)    They agree with me and say that coconut oil and olive oil are highly effective oils for the  hair.
2)    They don’t think that that Wen conditioner is anything special too. (Just like I thought.)
3)    They talk about spending way too much money on hair conditioners and how it’s really not needed. Most $5 to  $10 dollar conditioners are just as good as $30 dollar ones.
4)    They talk about the popular Ojon treatment, and basically say you can get the same thing with a  product containing coconut oil which will probably be way cheaper.

All in all, this book is LOADED with amazing information and I highly recommend it. Anyway, the nice folks at The Beauty Brains are not only giving us a copy of the book to give away, but a $50. Sephora gift certificate as well. 



Just leave any comment here. Tell me something interesting about yourself.
Here’s something interesting. I find after having lil man now that I’m incredibly organized and I can't stand clutter but before I had lil man I was the most disorganized  person you could ever meet. It’s kind of funny. Anyway, for extra chances to win, please follow me on twitter and leave me a comment letting me know you are following me. 

Winner will be announced this Monday. Also, tomorrow or Monday whenever I get around to it (lil man is being a handful), I'm reviewing and giving away some of  Lorac's new Summer Collection. This collection is so  beautiful!!! Here's a peek at some of the products




 Hugs, 

Milly

I love reading beauty books like this! And on the topic of lip balm, I just went into C.O. Bigelow the other day and stocked up on their lemon line of lip balms- they had them on sale for $3!

I would love to read that book and win a $50 giftcard from Sephora. I also use coconut oil on my hair and skin. I use it as pre shampoo treatment and a little bit during the week and as a body oil. I've also started using it on my kids' hair.

Thanks to your blog (and a few other favorites) I have a new appreciation for all things beauty! I LOVE Coconut Oil now (as well as jojoba oil) and I've got all of my friends using Coconut Oil as well. I can spend hours in Sephora at a time and that's usually because I'm looking up your blog on my iphone to make sure I'm buying the right products that I saw on this blog! LOL! I also follow you on twitter (JValeska3). Thanks for sharing so much valuable info about beauty and giving us a glimpse into your blessed life! :)

Hi I'm Jenny! I love your blog and this book seems like a great buy. I like peaches, but I can't stand biting into them. It feels so weird with the peach fuzz. Once I get over the first bite, I'm good to go lol. I'm following you on twitter, my username is MakeupOnABudget. Take care!

Tatjana said...

Logan said...

I'm Logan,

I love beauty books and books that explain how products work. I am also obssessed, so when you read books that help to demistify products it saves you soo much money.

Logan said...

I LOVE BEAUTY PRODUCTS. I love beauty books and books that expalin how products work. They help you to become a smarter consumer.

Stela said...

Hey! First, let me tell you I follow you on twitter (as cupcake4ever21 ) !My name is Stela and I live in NY too ( yay for NY ) ! So my interesting fact is that I am extremely disorganized myself but it just drives me crazy when others are not organized and I actually love organizing other people when it comes to events and everything else actually lol (weird I know)! I've always tried to apply that urge to organize other people to myself but I haven't succeeded yet! Also, I am a college student and I could really use the gift card and would love to read the book! I love your blog- never stop blogging!

Cinthia said...

I would love to read a book like this. Something interesting about me: I like watching the rain fall but hate to be in it.

Maria said...

That sounds like an awesome book! What's interesting? Well - interesting to me is that I tried to cut my own hair when I was 5. Needless to say, I didn't do a very good job. When my teacher asked me what happened the next day; I told her that "my mommy gave me a haircut."

sweetps123 said...

I'm not sure if it is too late to enter.... but I would love to have a chance to win this great prize!

I have a twin and we love to share beauty tips with each other. It is saves time, money and effort to have two of us trying out different products and techniques. I love hearing what interesting things she has found- and if it works well for her, chances are it will work great for me, too!

ps. I haven't tried straight coconut oil on my hair yet. It kind of scares me. I use Argan oil from time to time. Do they give similar results? I will try it one of these days.

Ummmm, I love the real housewives of OC but pretend I dont watch it,lol!!

Frances said...

Yes, if I can be hooked on lip gloss, I would say one can be hooked on lip balm!

nyccurls said...

I love books like this and am always experimenting with conditioners to treat my thirsty hair with - coconut and jojoba oils are lifesavers! Something about me - I have started trying to have a baby and am so excited!!
