Two Ways to Win Mission Skincare

Published in: Just For Fun


Good mornin’ and happy Friday, babes! Looks like we made it. πŸ™‚


This week took a lot out of me, but now I feel great. How ’bout we kick things off with a giveaway?

Mission Skincare’s high-performance beauty products for face and body were created by athletes, for athletes, but you don’t need a wicked serve to appreciate the line.

Co-created by tennis goddess and Glamour mag Woman of the Year Serena Williams, the antioxidant-rich products are paraben-, preservative- and cruelty-free.

The prize

Five lucky ladies will each win three goodies from Mission Skincare by Serena Williams (a $48 value):

  • Active Daily Facial Cleanser ($40): A quick-cleansing foaming face wash (works in 90 seconds flat!) that removes makeup and impurities while nourishing and renewing the skin
  • Pomegranate Lip Balmer SPF 15 ($4): This long-lasting lip balm (in Serena’s favorite flavor) contains cocoa butter to hydrate and broad-spectrum SPF15 to protect; it’s also paraben- and preservative-free
  • Pink Lemonade Lip Balmer SPF 15 ($4): Also paraben- and preservative-free in sweet-smelling pink lemonade

How to enter…

    Sunday, I’ll be cleaning house, and awaiting to hear if my man “bagged a buck.” Open season of deer hunting always fills me with a mild dread but he and his friends/family are safe hunters, following every mode of precaution in the deep woods.
