Really Ree Elemis Giveaway

So the first week back to work after a holiday is normally a bit grim to say the least. Particularly this week coming back to a cold, grey, wintery England.

Now I enter loads of stuff but I am the unluckiest person I know - "I never win anything" is a massive cliche, but genuinely, if I'm at the races, people ask me what I'm betting on to make sure they back something else. I'm also banned from watching any important football matches as I'm that much of a jinx (not that Leeds United need any help from me, ahem).

However, the blow of returning from Ibiza was well and truly softened for me, as I learned when I was away that I'd won a competition that I entered ages ago.

You may know that Elemis products and facials make up a major part of my regular skincare routine (previous post here), but what you may not know is that one of the first Beauty Blogs that I stumbled across, and one of the reasons I was inspired to start blogging myself was Really Ree. So it seems even sweeter to me that I should win a competition on her blog!

Here's the lovely package I returned to after my holiday:

It contained full size bottles of the following - meaning the prize was worth a staggering £144!:
  • Papaya Enzyme Peel - love this and use already
  • Melting Cleansing Gel - new product out this year that I haven't tried yet so can't wait to test this one out
  • Sensitive Cleansing Wash - not tried this before
  • Maximum Moisture Day Cream
  • Maximum Replenish Night Cream - not used either of these before as I currently use the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream and Night Cream so will be very interested to see how they compare as there is a huge difference in price!!
Anyway, this has definitely taught me that despite how unlucky you may be, you are always in with a chance. Many thanks to Ree and I look forward to letting you know how I get on with this huge package of luxury products!

Have you won any great competitions from other blogs?
