welcome to blog spa: take care of your skin giveaway

Wouldn't it be great if we could all pencil in a day at the spa together?  We could finally meet face to face and chat over manicures, gab during facials and giggle in the midst of pedicures. 

Hmm . . . that would have to one pretty big spa!

Well, since we can't do that, Bev (of Flamingo Toes fame) and I want to welcome you to Blog Spa . . . you've spent a year taking care of others, making gifts for others, doing for others . . . this week is about taking care of you.  We will be offering our own tips and tutorials plus giveaways from some great shops. 

So stop by every morning this week for a great giveaway and every evening for a spa tip or tutorial.   

To start off our Blog Spa I want to introduce you to a great Etsy store . . . Skin Journey.  Skin Journey provides a line of quality spa products for body and facial care.   




Plus, I love that Skin Journey carries sample/travel sizes as well so that you can try out a variety of products to see which one you like before you commit to a full-size product AND then get your fav products in travel sizes . . . woohoo. 

To kick off Blog Spa, we are giving away a Basic Facial Care Set from Skin Journey.

Basic Facial Care Set from Skin Journey

First entry:
~Tell me about your skin care routine.

Leave a comment for each extra entry:
~Be or become a twelve crafts follower . . . and PLEASE don't just follow for the giveaway and then unfollow once the giveaway is over.  I know that might sound rude, but seriously, if you don't want to follow, don't . . . I won't be mad.  There are other ways to enter.
~Be or become a follower of the Flamingo Toes.
~Visit Skin Journey and let me know your favorite product.
~Heart that product on Etsy (add it to favorites).
~Heart the shop on Etsy (add it to favorites).
~Let me know if you have our cute Blog Spa button up on your blog.

Well, I use mineral makeup - which in and of itself is good for your face. I also use an organic moisturizer with vitamins and minerals in it (I bought it at TJMaxx for super cheap!) Thanks for the chance to win - I'm a massage therapist, and so I think blog spa week is a great idea!

I wash my face with Aveeno in the morning and at night. During the day I wear lotion with SPF in it and at night I have a night lotion-Murad brand. Since I'm preggers, my skin has been going crazy and nothing seems to be working. I'm so excited about this giveaway!!!

I just started using proactive.. not because I have break out... but because I thought I should start some sort of routine. HA!

the Squalane Body Oil looks really interesting.....fun site...and I love the idea of sample size.

Hands Sew Full said...

My mother had the softest skin I have ever felt and she was a long time Oil of Olay user. I have tried many different types, but the whole routine thing is just beyond my time management skills! So, I wash my face in the shower with Oil of Olay facial wash and then moisturize my eye area with their eye serum and the rest of my face gets the Total Effects Moisturizer. That is it! I hope my skin stays as soft as Moms was!

Debby said...

I wash my face most of the time with just water. I use Clinique lotion of Olay of Olay. Sometimes at night I use vaseline at night around my eyes. I have a friend that used it all over her face at night and she has no wrinkles. I am needing a change. I would like to try the Tropical hydrating lotions.

My skin care routine totally sucks... I have a hodge podge of products, none of which I really like all that much. And, running after a baby all the time just doesn't leave Mommy with the time she needs to take care of her face!! ;)

Shasta Looper said...

First I use baby oil to remove all eye makeup. Probably not the best thing to use, but it is cheap. Then I use Burt's Bees Radiance facial cleanser with royal jelly. Next, I tone with Clean/Clear toner and follow with Johnson and Johnson moisturizer. I'm a drugstore girl. Love this idea!!

I usually just wash my face with water, and sometimes I use some body wash, but not often because it would dry out my skin. Then I put some olay lotion on my face. Very very rarely, I have been known to do a mask, lol.

My goodness that Peruvian Chocolate/Shea Butter soap looks decadent and lovely.

Mindy said...

Oops, I missed the first entry, which is to tell about my skin care routine. I wash my face daily in the morning shower (I don't wear makeup, other than a little mascara now and then, so I don't wash my face in the evenings). I use Aveeno Active naturals clear complexion cream cleanser and after my shower I use Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Moisturizer. It's SPF 15. If I am going to be outside all day (I work in Parks and Recreation), I use an additional moisturizing sunscreen.

Most days I wake up and wash my face with a combo aging/blemish facewash. I use a repair lotion and sunscreen..every single one of my facial products is a different brand.Its taken me years to find specifically what works for my face! Sadly...there are some nights that I forget to wash off my make up and I wake up with raccoon eyes :/

gypsy@Hebrews11:13 said...

Ok, my skincare routine- I'm a woman who had good skin in high school and now has high school skin in her 30's- GRRRR. I wash with neutrogena cleanser morning and night and use (right now) YES TO CARROTS moisturizer. I wear no make-up except mascara because it seems to make things worse. I'm open to trying anything in the hopes it will help.

Chelsi said...

My skin care routine... Gets more complicated the older I get. I use whatever eye makeup remover that doesn't burn my eyes or give me dry, yucky skin around my eyes. I wash with Kirkland's facewash and moisturize with either Equate's version of Oil of Olay or Kirkland's in the morning, both with SPF. Kirkland eye cream day and night, and Kirkland night cream (at night, of course). And, I try to remember, once a week to do some sort of masque/exfoliating step. Hard to remember.

My face is pretty picky about what I use on it, I would love to try some of skin journey's items. Most all natural stuff is very expensive but this stuff seems right in my price range and I love that they have sample and travel size. I can tell you how many times I have wasted my money on something that didn't work for me and then I'm left with this huge bottle! Thanks for introducing their etsy shop to me!
