    12 Days, Jesus, Mary and Joseph. And maybe the manger - and the stable.

    So the 12 Days have been very successful - and I haven't finished. Shame I can't add up really isn't it? Suffice to say I will be scheduling the giveaways until the fabulousness has all been given away.

    There's so much more to come!

    12 Days of Giveaways. Day 10. Indeed Labs


    It would be rude, frankly, to hold 12 Days of Giveaways and not include Indeed Labs.

    Home of the now infamous Hironsluron Hydraluron, Indeed Labs hit 2014 running with the launch of the brand new Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask, perfect for the post-over-indulging-dehydrated faces out there. Holding 4 in a pack, they are all soaked in next generation 3D hyaluronic acid. (I have no idea what that actually means, but they bloody work.) There are four packs of masks up for grabs (to ONE winner).

    And lest we forget, to keep that dehydrated skin turning over and stimulating collagen whilst you have a kip, we also have 3 tubes of Retinol Reface to be won.


    Retinol Reface contains 3 types of retinol that soften, smooth and help reverse the signs of ageing. One of (if not THE) the mildest, non-irritating forms of retinol I've ever used.

    ONE lucky reader will win ALL of the above. To enter, simply:

    • Leave a comment below (Because of hideous spam, I approve all comments and will be asleep for the first 6 hours of this giveaway, please don't worry if your comment doesn't show - no need to send it more than once.)
    • Giveaway closes at 11.59pm this evening (19th)
    • Open UK/Ireland only.
