Margarete was the winner of the BURN hand lotion. Congratulations to her, and thank you to all who entered!
Her favorite August posting was Do You Use Store Testers? She wrote, "Your Aug 9th post was educational and served as a much needed reminder to all of us who buy beauty products!"
Many thanks to those who entered the contest! I want you to know how much I loved your e-mails. I wish I could have transferred all of your comments to the blog comments. One makeup artist wrote about how hard she tries to protect those testers, but she can't stop every customer from dipping or using in an unsanitary way. She said she wouldn't use them herself! Mamavalveeta03, I appreciated your e-mail.
Now, for the technical info. Each entrant was assigned a number in the order in which the e-mails arrived. I used a random number generator (RANDOM.ORG) to select a winner. That was as fair as I could make it.
Our next giveaways, coming soon, were donated by the Armani Beauty Team at Saks Fifth Avenue in Chevy Chase, Maryland. They were incredibly generous. Best Things in Beauty will be posting them, one at a time, over the next few weeks. Make sure to keep checking in for a chance to win a luxurious Armani product!
