Win a Box of Unilever Goodies!

This giveaway is now CLOSED. Thank You so much to our wonderful sponsor Unilever (in conjunction with Rocket XL)! We would love to work with you again! The winner has been notified and upon confirmation, the winner's username will be posted both here and on the homepage. Remember: There are still some great giveaways active on the upper right hand side of the page!

---Ascending Butterfly's Editorial Team

˙·٠•●♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♥●•●•٠·˙








I hope by now you all have noticed the totally awesome Beauty Tip of the Day Widget on our Home Page! In addition to enjoying the daily beauty tips, if you press on this widget and press on the upper tab that reads 'hair' and then press on it's subtab that reads 'bonus' you can get a free sample of Shampoo and Conditioner, how cool is that?

I was sent a box filled with an assortment of Unilever products (from our friends at Rocket XL) that contained Dove deodorant, Ponds makeup remover towelettes, Dove hair spray, Qtips, Vaseline and more!

I love combining the best of home beauty care tips with trusted products that I've used since....well forever! Let's start with one of my personal favorites from the box, Vaseline; (I used to call it the tub of wonder goo!) there are actually websites out there devoted to the hundreds of uses!

Here are my top three:

1. Put a coat of vaseline on your feet at night, cover them with socks and wake up to softer feet – every day! (sorry but I am not buying the $50 sleep sock/lotion combo, when this works just as well if not BETTER)
2. Put vaseline on your elbows every day – they will stay soft!
3. Put Vaseline on chapped lips, it's the original! (a winter life saver if your lips chap easily! Just because it's winter time doesn't mean your pucker shouldn't be kissable at all times!)

One neat tip from the widget includes extending time between Salon Visits with the Dove Color Therapy System, in this economy anything you can do at home to extend time between pricey salon visits is heaven sent for sure!
 
WIN IT! - One lucky 'Ascending Butterfly' will have the chance to win a Goodie Box of their very own filled with FULL SIZE products from Dove, Pond’s, Q-tips and Vaseline. The prize pack is worth $30!

Indicate in your entry that you follow (if your 'comment name/user id' differ from your profile id, please let me know what name you follow under) and (2) Click on the Beauty Tips of the Day widget on the right sidebar and tell me one of your favorite beauty tips (a tip that isn’t listed above) We are not looking for general tips here, the widget tips will all contain beauty advice that mentions a unilever brand product.

  53. I like the idea of keeping Q-tips in my every day bag for a quick fix if I smear by mascara and/or eyeliner. It's much easier to use than using tissue and it's small enough to stash in my little make-up bag than a packet of pocket tissues.

  63. I like the Q-tips tip under Trend Alert: Create a smoldering smokey eye by using a Q-tips cotton swab to blend a few varying shades of plums and purples. With more cotton at the tipe they're soft and gentle for delicate skin around the eays and a clean alternative to expensive makeup brushes.
