$50 Sephora Gift Card + {Can You Get Hooked on Lip Balm?} Giveaway

DSC_0004

I recently got a copy of the book Can You Get Hooked on Lip Balm? that answers questions about all sorts of beauty misconceptions.  It even discusses the question, can you get hooked on lip balm?

You all know I love pretty things and put together pretty outfits but I tend to slack on the personal beauty care department.  Like so many of you, I want quick and easy products, without all the fuss.  The thing I loved about this book is that this group of top cosmetic scientists (The Beauty Brains} get straight to the point, telling you how it is.  And then they give advice on what you should do instead.
Some of my favorite topics addressed were:

What is the best way to dry your hair?
What’s the right way to apply sunscreen?
Four types of wrinkles and how to get rid of them.
How to pop a pimple {Like me, I know you think you know the right way, but you are wrong!}.

I love that this book is a simple read…easy question and answer format.  For magazine junkies it’s like a whole book on the beauty question section. 
A little more about the book:
Top cosmetic scientists answer your questions about the lotions, potions and other beauty products you use every day.  Based on the blog at TheBeautyBrains.com, this informative book cuts through the confusing, misleading, and sometimes false information that beauty companies bombard consumers with and provides scientific answers to hundreds of questions about cosmetics.
The lovely people behind The Beauty Brains are so excited to spread the beauty knowledge that they have offered to give away one fabulous reader a copy of Can You Get Hooked on Lip Balm? and a $50 Sephora Gift Card!  Someone is going to be so lucky to get their beauty on!

All you have to do is comment below sharing your one beauty must have {mine is most definitely lip balm…hmmm….}.

Winner will be chosen by random and emailed sometime next week!  Good luck!

The lovely people of Beauty Brains did not compensate me for this post other than the book to review.
