Win a hint of summer!

Two weeks ago I received some lovely summer products from Corine De Farme. I was going to do a review about the ingredients & product textures already, but then I realized that I just had to wait for the sun to hit my terrace. Good reviews are thorough reviews, right? 

However, I’ve already got my personal favorite in this line. The protective dry oil (pictured left) with a delicious Monoï de Tahiti smell has a lovely texture & SPF 30! I’ve checked the ingredients and they are quite alright! No Padimate-O or parabens. And you know that kind of products got my vote. 
I’m very happy to be able to give one of these dry oils away! The sun hasn’t showed up that much in the past few weeks, so you can win a sneak peek of summer with this little bottle of sun. 
As always, I’m keeping it quite simple. Just leave me a comment below with a valid email address & if you’ve got twitter, please tweet this: “Win a hint of summer at www.nailsandcupcakes.com!”. I will pick a winner on Wednesday, May 2nd! This contest is open for all Belgian ladies. (Sorry other readers, other contests open for the EU will follow soon!)

Update May 2nd: And the winner is..

Citronellore! (thank you, random.org) Check your emails & hope for the sun.. Because that bottle of protective dry oil will soon arrive on your doorstep! Sorry for all the international contestants I had to disqualify.. But stay tuned for international giveaways!

Win a complete Philosophy Total Matteness set!

Ladies and gents with combination or oily skin.. I feel your pain. Especially during Summer time, having oily skin can be such a hassle. Pores look huge, make-up doesn’t sit well and sometimes you just look like a grease ball. It’s not fun. That’s why I focus my skin care on two main goals: hydrating while lowering sebum production & blemish healing and preventing. Not all brands thoroughly understand oily skin.. Creams don’t do well on oily skin, for example. I stick to lotions & gels. And try finding a decent daily sun protectant! It’s a bit of a hassle, but when you’ve found your perfect routine.. You’re good to go. But when you haven’t yet.. Maybe this new launch is worth a try! Philosophy has launched a trio of products designed just for those combination & oily skin types, and focused on battling overly active sebum production & big pores. The line is conveniently called ‘Total Matteness’, promising a matte complexion.

There are three products carrying the Total Matteness name: a pore-minimizing & mattifying cleanser + mask in 1, an oil-free mattifying pore eraser serum and an oil-free, mattifying pore refiner toner. I’ve been trying out the three products during the past few weeks and will do a thorough review of each of them somewhere in the next few weeks. My reason for already doing a write-up on these? I’m happy to be able to give away one complete set of these, worth €88,50. I’ll be using Rafflecopter for this giveaway again since it’s so easy to use & it was a joy picking the winners with their tool last time. Be sure to read the Terms & Conditions! Open to anyone with a valid address in Belgium.

Big Wild Hair + WIN!

image

My hair & volume.. They’re not best buddies. Nine out of ten times I try to add some oomph to my hair, it falls flat again within minutes. Those easy breezy texturising sprays? Hopeless on my locks. So what I really need is something a little bit heavier, which doesn’t make everything all crunchy and icky. In came L’Oréal Professionnel's new Wild Stylers products, with products like Crêpage de Chignon and Depolish to add that oomph that I’ve really been looking for.
