Bare Escentuals mastermind Leslie Blodgett is venturing into the world of scent with the Leslie Blodgett Perfume Diaries, a limited edition collection inspired by pivotal moments in her life. In celebration of the launch of her first, Bare Skin, Sephora is giving away a TRIP TO HAWAII and a $2000 Bare Skin goodie basket!
Now, I'll be honest with you. While I absolutely love the concept of translating sensory memories into a bottled fragrance, Bare Skin (available now to Sephora Beauty Insiders) isn't my favorite. Leslie's interpretation of a vacay scent just doesn't match with mine, and Bare Skin smells way too similar to Bath & Body Works Sandalwood Vanilla, which I don't really like either. (See my previous mention here.)
However, just because I don't like it doesn't mean that you won't. And how could I not fill you in on this fabulous contest - especially since Hawaii is so near and dear to my own special travel memories?
Here are the deets: Become a fan of Leslie Blodgett Perfume Diaries on Facebook and submit a journal entry, along with a photo, that expresses a sensory memory of a vacation. Tropical flowers and soft breezes remind you of the night your hubby proposed? Tequila and sunscreen bring you straight back to spring break (ha)? Dry spices transport you to that amazing adventure in Morocco? Perfect!
The grand prize winner and a guest will receive a luxurious vacation to Honolulu, Hawaii for five nights/six days and a gorgeous gift basket of Leslie’s Bare Skin Collection (approximately $2000 value). Three second place winners will receive a set of Leslie’s Bare Skin Collection (over $100 value/each).
And if a Beauty Addict reader wins, and I'm in town, I'll take you out for Mai Tais at the Royal Hawaiian!
