Happy New Year loves! I hope the holiday season was a time of much love, warmth and happiness for everyone and that the Year of the Rooster (although not quite here yet but soon!) has started off on a beautiful note. I realise a little New Year greeting didn’t quite make it into my previous post 😉
I wanted to kick off my third blog year (yikes, where does the time go!) with another beautiful Leahlani giveaway. I did something similar almost exactly a year ago to celebrate my birthday, my blog’s birthday and my engagement to my fiancé. I felt I wanted to celebrate in a similar fashion with one of my absolute favourite brands in the green beauty space and since this is now the second time I do this with Leahlani, I see it perhaps becoming an annual tradition 🙂 My blog doesn’t turn 3 until next month but close enough. Today is actually my birthday that I share with my fiancé in effect making us twins as we were both born in the same year. To celebrate we are in Hong Kong, the city where we reunited after 15 years apart and a place that we have wanted to revisit for a long time. Last time we were here was 9 years ago! So while you are busy entering this beautiful Leahlani giveaway (if I may say so myself) we will be busy taking in the sights, visiting old haunts and eating lots of dim sum!
So what’s in the giveaway you ask? I don’t think I will ever be able to host one without including my two HG items, namely the Mermaid Mask and Bless Beauty Balm. The former has been in my life for the past 3 years and I never fail to mask with it on a weekly basis. You can read more about it here. Bless is my everything. She is a hardworking little multi-tasker and my preferred usage is as an evening cleanser. I’ve written about her in-depth in this post if you want to know more but suffice to say Bless does it all for me – cleanses effectively yet gently while simultaneously cocooning me in a delicately soft scent of neroli and blue tansy, elevating my ritual to a decadent spa-like experience. I adore her. Plus she is also pink! So Mermaid and Bless are two of the four items that will be included in this year’s Leahlani Love Package.
The remaining two were difficult to choose since I pretty much love the entire Leahlani line but to round out the selection for one lucky winner I decided on Mahina Evening Replenishing Elixir as one of them. After testing Mahina for a month it quickly climbed the ranks of Nic’s must-have products since she smells delightful (vanilla + orange), sinks in like a velvet dream and works so hard in order for you to wake up with the softest, most replenished complexion. You can read more in this post otherwise I’ll end up writing another review! It really is a beautiful elixir and one that your skin will thank you for. Mahina also made it to my personal favs list of 2016, more of which can be read here (warning, it’s a bit of a long love letter!).
The fourth magical potion I decided to add is one of Leah’s toning mists, Bohemian Ruby Balancing Toner or Citrus + Citrine Regenerating Toner. The winner will be able to choose one or the other depending on their skin type. I’ve tried and loved both for different reasons and for my reactive, temperamental combo skin type Boho Ruby came out on top. That’s not to say that CiCi didn’t charm me (oh my how she smells incredible!) but I noticed that Boho suited my skin type better. If you’re unsure which one to go for do ask Leah and she will be able to guide you. Toners and mists belong to a product category that I find difficult to gauge whether they really do anything but since I have reactive skin I can quickly determine whether a mist helps alleviate any reactions when they rear their ugly head. For me, Boho definitely calms and hydrates and again, she’s pink! What’s not to love about that. This is another product I’ve written about previously and you can read the break down in this post.
I hope the idea of winning this giveaway excites you just as much as the thought of making someone’s Leahlani dream come true excites me 🙂 I truly and wholeheartedly adore this line and the expert formulator behind it. Leah is a beautiful soul who really infuses her creations with much aloha which is tangibly felt when you include any of her magical potions into your ritual. This is one of the many reasons why I love her work – not only does she have years of holistic esthetician education behind her (ergo she truly and professionally knows the ins and outs of skin) but she also has this abundant love and intention for what she does. When you mix these qualities together, it equals authenticity that is felt beyond time and space. This is what stands her apart and I know that many of you feel the same. It’s a recipe for success and one that cannot be emulated.
So if you’re keen on trying out some of Leah’s beautiful skin treats (and no offence but you’d be crazy not to), enter the Rafflecopter below. All entries are mandatory except for the repost on Instagram. I will be checking that all entries have been fulfilled so be sure to follow the rules. The winner will be contacted via DM and he/she will also be displayed in the Rafflecopter below so check back here on January 24th to see who has won. And of course this giveaway is open internationally, none of that “only open to” (insert country) silliness here! I don’t do many giveaways but I reckon when I do they’re worth waiting for 😉
Now, I’m off to get lost in the crowds of HK so I wish you all lots of luck and a fabulous week ahead!
