Too Broke For Christmas Giveaway

Day 3

If you are just stopping in for the first time, start at Day 1 for the lowdown on how to enter the giveaways. Then check out Day 2, because all of the giveaways are open for entries till the end of the week! And here are today's fantastic goodies...


The travel bag includes the Whish Original Body Brush to apply your yummy shaving treatments with. A mini Shave Crave Cream and mini Shave Savour aftershave. This delicious giveaway is courtesy of SkinCareRX.
Review: SkinCareRX was generous enough to send me a bottle of IS Clinical Active Serum to try out. This bit of magic in a bottle got rid of my acne and made my rough cheeks baby smooth. When it runs out I'll be cracking the pretty blue glass open to get the last drop!

Murad's Essential-C Cleanser does such a good job of making my fair, blotchy skin calm. But the full size tube is a whopping $45. So I buy the $9 sample size and try to make it last as long as possible. But SkinCareRX has the larger size tube for $34.95, plus they let you knock another 10% off with this coupon code - SEBL10. And get free shipping for any order over $49. Very nice. I'll be ordering the cleanser from them as soon as I squeeze the last bit out of my mini tube.

If you are able to treat yourself, the products at SkinCareRX are top notch and cheaper than Botox. The site is well organized and straightforward as well. Worth checking out the next time you need to stock up on skin care supplies.



With threeTag books; Go Diego Go Underwater Mystery, Olivia and Disney Princess Adventures Under The Sea.

Review: I have to confess that I've shied away from books that blip, beep and flash. I steer the kids away from the books that have a row of buttons on the right hand side that emit noises and songs. A total spoilsport I know. But I adore books. Real books, with paper and words and pictures. Books with pages that don't yell at you.

But I am making a huge exception to that rule for Tag. I love that daughter can hold the system in her hand like a book, because it is a book with actual paper pages. And sliding the pen from right to left across the words mimics how she'll read versus just pressing a button. And most importantly, the voices that read the stories are cheerful and not shrill or annoying. I'm also finding that after using the Tag pen with a book a few times, daughter sets it down and "reads" the book aloud by herself. We'll absolutely buy more of the Tag storybooks.
Have fun! And check back on Thursday for more!

My husband shaves with a shaving brush now (for about the last 4 years) and he says is makes ALL the difference for him. No more razor burn or ingrown hairs, and the shaving cream lasts FOREVER if you use the brush, which makes the whole set a cool, economical gift. We have lots of men in our family who could benefit from this as a gift!
And of course, my kids would thing the leapfrog tag is awesome!

Those Roomba's scare me so see--I'm not greedy (I didn't leave a comment on day two) but I'd sure like this goody bag, cause, well, after all; “I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and dog-one it, people like me.”
lol...I've got Al Franken on the brain lately.

Like I say, I love the Leapfrog products and want this system under the tree for our 4 year old. She likes books, but is just feeling out the letters and words to start reading. So we need to work on it. I'd much rather the Tag "show up" under our tree than having to go find and purchase it!

Mags said...

Mmmm...Blueberry mint. The Tag does look very cool even if it bleeps and blips!

Rachel said...

Oh my word! Can I tell you how awesome that reading system would be for my daughter! She's a book fiend and her favorite series is the Olivia series! She is dying to learn to read and these would help her!

Awesome giveaways!

Katie said...

The travel kit sounds delicious...too bad it's not for eating!
