Before I tell you a nice little story, I'll announce that we are going to slip in a little Korres Giveaway Contest before we start "Armani Giveaway Month." The Prize? Korres Fig Body Butter! Read on.
Last month, I missed the special promotional offer celebrating the new Korres Web site. When I ordered, I didn't see the promotional item added to my shopping cart, so I e-mailed Korres customer service. I received a very nice reply, almost apologizing that I had missed the end date for the promotion. I totally understood and felt like an airhead for not noticing that in the first place.
Of course, Korres has no idea that I write a beauty blog, so what happened next was astounding. I suddenly received a shipment notice from them. I couldn't remember placing a second order, so that piqued my curiosity. Monday, the promotional gift I had wanted arrived via UPS. I am so impressed! Their customer service folks answered my inquiry promptly and caringly. Then, they far exceeded my expectations when they sent me the gift. What a gesture!
They earned a loyal customer. The best way I can thank them is by telling others. If you haven't tried Korres products, they are top-notch. Check out their environment-friendly ingredient "choices" here. I have already written about my beloved Guava and Jasmine products. Korres Yogurt Cooling Gel provides such relief to red, burned, or itchy skin! Because I have loved Guava Lip Butter for a long time, I am now trying the Lip Saver Roll ($19.50, shown above), a trio of lip butters in Pomegranate, Quince, and their newest Jasmine. So far, I'm loving them! They feel good and add a bit of shine and tint - perfect for that natural look - from a company that makes products with natural ingredients. Love them!
To celebrate the company, Best Things in Beauty will give away a full-sized Fig Body Butter. Fig is richly hydrating, with essential oils and vitamins, including Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E. If you want to win this fragrant body moisturizer, e-mail Bestthingsinbeautycontests@gmail.com and tell us, in three sentences or less, why you would like to try a Korres product. The deadline for entries is midnight on Saturday, August 23. A team will select the most persuasive entry. Good Luck!
For this contest, only U.S. entrants, please. I have posted this giveaway on Free!Grechen, a pretty cool site for contests and giveaways.
