Josie Maran Bronzing Argan Oil Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to Ginger! Random.org called her number.

Josie Maran's Argan Bronzing Oil ($52) leaves me humming Summer Breeze, an old Seals & Crofts song that brings back memories of those days of fresh, bare, and bronzed "beach faces," lit by the sun and scented by warm sand and waves. I think this is a perfect July giveaway!

Josie Maran's ultimate organic bronzing oil will give you a healthy bronzed glow anytime of year. You don't have to limit its use to summer. With Josie's signature ingredient argan oil, which is rich vitamin E and essential fatty acids, this lightweight and moisturizing bronzing oil can be applied to face and body.

It's not a self-tanner; it washes off. It's a tinted oil that's good for your face - and your looks. It's easy to apply, whether you use it straight out of the bottle or mixed with your moisturizer. It gives me a nice, lightly tanned appearance - something different since I stay out of the sun (or wear heavy-duty sunscreen). The color is fabulous because it's believable. The extra-added bonus is the argan oil, which is good for every complexion and skin type. You can read a little more about Josie Maran Bronzing Argan Oil at my May post.

How can you enter to win it? Just leave a comment here once. It's that easy. You don't have to subscribe to the blog or tweet the contest - although I would love that - or comment repeatedly! Once is enough.

After you comment, feel free to e-mail bestthingsinbeautycontests@gmail.com and identify your comment. You can never be too careful about sharing your e-mail address on a blog, so I would follow this second step if I were you (an alternative is to code your e-mail, e.g., myname at gmail dot com, in your comment).

The contest is open to residents of the United States, Canada, and Western Europe. The deadline for entries will be Saturday, July 10, at midnight. The next morning, I will use a random number generator (random.org) to select the winner. I will e-mail the winner at that time. The winner will have 48 hours to reply to my message and provide a shipping address. After 48 hours, the prize will be forfeited, and another winner will be selected.

I will post this contest at Free!Grechen, my favorite giveaway site on the Web. If you like giveaway contests, you will love Free!Grechen.

Good Luck!

Update 7/6: Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy holiday! I hope you had a great weekend.

I recall visiting Acapulco in the mid 1970's and buying from a vendor on the beach. It was fantastic and years have passed having never been able to find it again! I love this and would be thrilled to win this contest!

I'm all about staying safe in the sun and if you have to fake a tan, go for it :) This would be useful to keep a bronze look without the sun damage! I love Josie Maran's products especially the argan oil because it's so good for the skin and hair.
Thanks for the amazing contest (as usual!)
