Win: Your Own Handmade Skincare Products

This week’s giveaway is all about you and your skin.

I’m a big advocate for finding the right product to nourish and pamper your skin because after all, it is the canvas for which your makeup goes on and it’s not in the best condition, not even the most expert techniques and professional cosmetics will bring out the best of it if it’s not looked after on a daily basis.

So what better way than to give my readers a chance to try one of the skincare brands that I’ve been enjoying over the past month. 

Okoii, the natural handmade skincare brand which I showcased last week has kindly agreed to sponsor this latest giveaway.

Okoii produces natural skincare products inspired from the orient using ingredients like green tea, rice bran, camellia oil and all is freshly made so you know only the finest product at best potency is used for your skin. 

What you can win
As unique as Okoii is, so are the prizes. There will be two winners. The winners will each be able to choose their own prize from the any of Okoii’s skincare offering so that it can be tailored to their skin conditions. 

That means you can try the hydrating camellia and rose floral cream if you have dry sensitive skin or an oil controlling green tea deep cleansing face masque or if you can’t decide, you can choose the starter set for sample sizes of products for you to try the Okoii range out. 

Plus the winners will also receive a deluxe sample size of the rice bran facial soap, one of my favourite facial cleansing products out there.

    It's a tough choice, as their whole range looks pretty amazing. After reading your article from the other day I'm keen to try the 'Ultimate Rice Bran Whitening Skin Masque' but the 'Pure Organic Camellia Oil' is also calling my name. Too hard to decide!!

  4. I love trying new natural skin care brands, the product I would most love to try is the Luxury Camellia Anti-Aging Oil, as I have recently read great things about the benefits of Japanese Camellia oil and just looking at the additional ingredients that are infused in this super powerful blend, I am sure it would be a positive addition to my beauty regime :)
