Beauty Swellness: Live Clean GIVEAWAY!

IMG_20190219_170823

And another one! Yes, another giveaway!

I’m giving away a Live Clean prize package (approximate value $100).  I’ve long been a fan of this brand (I blogged about their sulphate-free shampoos in 2011). Although I don’t use only plant-based, chemical-free products, I have tried out many and Live Clean is one that I would happily use regularly (I’m always trying a lot of different products for work, but I always ask myself if this product is one I would buy regularly if I weren’t testing out different products and this one makes the cut).

Live Clean is Canadian (oh Canada!), and their products are ones you can trust to be effective but also eco-conscious and without any potentially harmful ingredients. Their shampoos are paraben-, SLS- and phthalate-free, for example, and their facial cleansing wipes are fantastic for travel. I haven’t tried all of their products so I’m excited to try out their SPF and their new Foaming Hand Washes. Oh, and the whole line is in pleasing packaging (a key consideration IMO when you have to have hand soap, for example, prominently displayed at your sink).

So I’m excited to try more of their products, and you should be excited, too, because you could win $100-worth of Live Clean products. The prize includes so many great products, including a few products for babies (I bet I could use that Baby Wash on my fur baby, Billie Jean…).

Here’s the rundown on what the winner will receive:

  • Live Clean Mineral Clay Rebalancing Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Live Clean Coconut Milk Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Live Clean Exotic Nectar Argan Oil Leave-In Conditioner Spray
  • Live Clean Coconut Milk Moisturizing Body Lotion
  • Live Clean Coconut Milk Moisturizing Liquid Hand Soap
  • Live Clean Foaming Hand Wash: White Tea & Cherry and Vanilla Bean & Coconut
  • Live Clean Baby Soothing Oatmeal Relief Tearless Baby Wash
  • Live Clean Baby Soothing Oatmeal Relief Baby Lotion
  • Live Clean Sport Mineral Sunscreen Spray SPF 30

Beauty Swellness: Sproos and Viviscal GIVEAWAY!

IMG_20190210_123607 (1)

I always find this time of year particularly tough. The month of January, you spend much of that month getting back into the swing of things after the holidays (plus for me, I have the fun of my birthday to look forward to!), but then February hits and it’s still cold and grey out and you realize there’s still a lot of winter to get through. So I thought as a pick-me-up, I’d hold a series of giveaways on Health & Swellness!

First up, I’m giving away this beauty prize package valued at $300! The prize includes:
  • 1 tub of Sproos Up Your Skin and Hair
  • 3 packages of Viviscal Extra Strength Supplements
  • 1 Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo
  • 1 Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Conditioner
  • 1 Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir

I’m a bit late to the party but I have just recently started trying out some collagen products. The new Sproos collagen formulas offer sustainably sourced, highly-soluble collagen at 7grams per serving”. Formulated with hydrolyzed collagen peptides sourced from wild-caught North Atlantic fish, Sproos collagen helps to restore and rebuild your body’s natural collagen, benefiting skin, hair, joints, bones and gut health. Sproos Up Your Hair & Skin is green tea citrus flavour with five additional health benefits including organic acerola, hyaluronic acid, zinc, silica, biotin.

And my hair is so fine and weak so I was excited to attend a workout event a few months ago with Viviscal, where I learned about and got samples of the Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo and Conditioner. In the prize package, you get the entire Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Range and the Viviscal Extra Strength Supplements, which work from the inside to promote thicker, fuller looking hair in as little as three to six months.

To enter:

Check out my Instagram post of the prize package and enter there. But you can get an additional entry by commenting on this post about which of the products you’re most keen on trying out.

This giveaway ends at 5 p.m. EST on Sunday, February 17, 2019. It is open to Canadian residents. The winner will be chosen at random and announced on my Instagram Stories on Monday, February 18, 2019.  The prize is awarded as is.

Beauty Swellness: 2018 Chicago Marathon manicure

IMG_9968

I’m running the Chicago Marathon again (I ran it in 2014 and 2017) and you know what that means? Time to get my marathon manicure! It’s been a ritual of mine for some years now to get some great nail art before a big race.

Although I usually go with something inspired by looks on the fashion runway (I got this manicure for the 2014 Chicago Marathon) or a nail look I’ve seen online, this time around I went with a look that’s more directly inspired by the race.

Since I trained for this marathon with Nike Canada with Nike Run Coach Brittany Moran, I asked Tips Nail Bar to use the colours of the Nike Pegasus Zoom Turbo, and for a swoosh across the fingers of my left hand, such that with my fingers extended, the nail art looks abstract, but bring the fingers together and they create the Nike Swoosh. On the thumb, and on my entire right hand, an array of stars — the inspo for this is the four stars on the Chicago flag. (I’ll replace these detail pics with better photos once I have more time; busy packing and getting to bed early for Chicago right now!)

(The colours Leeanne Colley and Naomi Misu used are CND Shellac Mint Convertible, and Accent Gel Play in Hot Pink layered with Artistic Color Gloss in Owned).

I love the look — the minty green with the vivid coral is bananas and it’ll be a nice reminder during the race that no matter what time I cross the finish line with that all I can ask for is that I reach for the stars. And believe me, I have plenty of time during a marathon and most definitely do notice my nails as I make my way through 42.2 kilometres! But I’ll also be thinking about the things I learned training this season and hopefully all of the brutally hard work this summer will pay off.
