Christmas Giveaway with Biotherm!

This post is sponsored by Biotherm.

I have another fabulous giveaway for you poppets! This time I have 5 (yes 5!) delicious Biotherm Christmas packs to give away. I have to say, I’m pretty excited about this giveaway because now that I’m a grown up I’ve started taking my skin care very seriously. And by ‘seriously’ I mean using a beauty routine that consists of more than just a quick scrub with supermarket cleanser and a handful of Olay slapped on my jowls.

This is a very serious gift pack my friends. I know it’s serious because you can buy this pack duty free at Singapore airport and we all know you can only buy awesome stuff there. The Biotherm crew have teamed up with Swedish illustrator Ingela Peterson Arrhenius to design the gorgeous packaging for this limited edition Christmas treat. They’ve also teamed up with Mission Blue and are donating proceeds from the holiday gift pack sales to help in their plight to protect the Ross Sea in Antarctica. Sweet.

All you have to do to to win this awesome Biotherm limited edition Christmas pack is answer this question…

Why does your skin need a pampering treat this Christmas?

    As a mum of three aged 8 and under
    “Me” time is rare, is it any wonder?
    I don’t often have time to look my best
    And a lack of funds leaves me hard-pressed!
    This beautiful prize would sit perfect under the Xmas tree
    With a label saying “Just for me!”

    Wine is bad for my skin. So is the sun. Unfortunately in December I become incapable of remembering either of these things. Sorry, skin.

    I work in retail. I’m working huge overtime, overnights and mornings and will be very time poor. Having this skin care pack would mean that I won’t have to worry about taking extra time to take care of my skin. What a weight off my shoulders!

    Why isn’t gmail an accepted email format! I had a whole response written then had to change the email address and it deletes my comment! Bah!
    Point is, working overnights and long hours in retail over Christmas leaves no time to think about my skin. Having this skin care pack would greatly reduce my stress levels.
    Having only Christmas day off I won’t be able to see my interstate parents, and this would be one of the only presents I get!

    I work in retail, so i spend the lead up to Christmas cooped up inside with horrible air-conditioning, my skin needs a little love by the time the holiday season is over.

    I work part time in boy’s boarding house laundry (yes, it really is everything you could imagine it to be!) while studying, and let me tell you, having steam blow in your face after an hour or two ironing shirt collars does zero for the pores!

    Oh dear I loveee the cool packaging with this Biotherm kit, very clever 🙂 Other than looking for a new skin care routine this would be a perfect start to the new me in 2013 !! I would adore this 🙂

    The Christmas and New Year period is definitely a time of excess, and I know come January 1, my skin will be very tired and needing some TLC!

  9. Kathryn OHalloran 4 years ago

    My skin needs pampering because I’m unemployed. I’m sure if I had better skin, I’d get my dream job 🙂

    I work heaps, I am a mother and I’m way to good to my husband. I have crippling insecurities about myself and anything that can make me feel a bit better about being in my own skin is a blessing.

    Christmas basically is the biggest break I get all year, which means I can make up for all the sleep deprivation. Slathering on Biotherm while catching up on my zzzzz will help set me up for the next year! Here’s to a new skin resolution.

    I am dieting during the festive season. Alas, I will be missing out on all those yummy calories that plump out my skin so nicely. I shall have to implement some sort of skin care regimen to counteract the damage caused by my new *groan* lifestyle.

      Oh good luck with dieting! It’s so hard around the holidays.

    Because after years of using the same (usually reliable) Aesop skincare products, I have developed a huge and very unpleasant pimple just under my nose which I am sure every single person who meets me is staring at. And because it is on my nose. And red. I am basically Rudolph the red nose reindeer.

      I want Aesop to work for me SO BADLY but it always leaves me rashy.

  18. Mandy 4 years ago

    I have the skincare routine of a 13 year old girl (I’m 22 and in all other respects a ‘grown up’.) This extends to sleeping in my makeup because I’m too lazy to take it off at night. Naughty!

    I need a new skincare routine.

  19. Cleo 4 years ago

    I recently moved to Brisbane from cool climes of Canada and my skin is suffering. I’m trying my best to protect it from the sun but I’m a sweaty mess and I look 13 again. I also had a baby 18 months ago and am planning on spoiling her this Christmas. No presents for the adults this year, I’m afraid.

      Eeep! Canada to Brisbane? That will do it!

  20. Katherine 4 years ago

    Great idea to team up with a quirky artist for some original packaging AND a really good cause!

    My skin needs a pampering treat because I’ve been running around in the sun for the past few weeks working on a television show that involves about 20 too many 15-year-olds!!! My skin is in need of some hard core love right now!

      I thought so too! I love the idea of working with illustrators. More brands should do this!

  21. joanne leech 4 years ago

    As a working mum of two I have little time for a beauty routine!!!! I want my skin to look fresh and enticing for my husband! I live in a small country town with no decent shops or access to great products like biotherm!! Please help me be pampered this Christmas.

    I am a florist and although being surrounded by peonies, roses and hydrangeas all day is pretty magnificent, it’s also really tough on my hands and skin.

  23. Linda 4 years ago

    I’m allergic to shellfish, but my bat cr@p crazy mother has forgotten and has booked a seafood buffet for our Christmas lunch. My skin (and the rest of me) will need some pampering after the inevitable trip to hospital to be deflated.

    I am 38 and have blackheads that I have never been able to get rid of, wouldnt it be great if this was the answer!!!

  25. Tracy Boulter 4 years ago

    I’m not telling my age if I did fess up you would know how much my pampering my skin needs to scrub up.

  26. Bek 4 years ago

    This post could not have come at a better time! My skin is currently in lock-down mode, battening down the hatches for the fury of Cadbury’s Favourites, booze and late nights I intend to rain down on it this Christmas. It in turn will fire back with its own artillery of pimples, dullness, flakes and general shit-ness. A Biotherm pack would be like a temporary ceasefire…

  27. Amanda 4 years ago

    Because if I had better skin then ALL THE THINGS would be better!

    I’ve worked an 11 day fortnight for the past year, spent my nights trying to finish a book, and I look how you’d imagine: LIKE HELL. In March I’m getting married, and what with the past 12 months, my skin is NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. I need something to help me look pretty, even if it’s just for a day!

  29. Carol Lavery 4 years ago

    We are in the process of moving, hosting Christmas, looking after parents and tiny relatives (who’s more work?!), interviewing for jobs and deciding on life directions. We are time and cash poor. My skin is in need of some serious loving!

  30. michelle w 4 years ago

    Old,(ish….50 anyway),dehydrated, thin (my skin, not me unfortunately). In sure need of help!! Get the picture? Yeah I know not a pretty picture!

    Ugh, my skin is disgusting after months of long hours in the office, and recently, on planes. This holidays I intend to treat it nicely; I recently started exhibiting signs of inherited rosacea, so no red wine for me! Unless I want to look like Santa Claus, haha. Instead I will be drinking lots of water, and covering myself in sunscreen, and y’know, actually keeping up a skin care routine! Though given I am headed north to mutant humidity, I might need a little extra help!
