Review and GIVEAWAY!!!!

I was soooo lucky to have been contacted by Jessica, a Pink Papaya consultant, about trying out a few of their products a couple of weeks ago…and all us girls understand the fabulousness of new products!!


She sent me a goodie package filled with a travel set facial cleanser, body lotion and lipstick.   My little girl was almost as excited as I was to open the package, AND I have had to fight her for the lotion ever since…it works sooo great on our poor, beatup Alberta skin and smells like a dream! I love anything citrus and this is perfect…the scent actually lasts all day and is soooo mosturizing…love!

The Facetini Travel Set is also working wonders on my poor pregnant and winter weathered skin. I adore the facial brush for the cleanser and have never had to double apply the face lotion, once is great and battles the dry winds we have around here! I couldn’t ask for more and the travel kit made the cut into the bag I have packed and ready to go when this baby comes. It is so portable and handy!!!

And the lipstick…

All I have to say is that, at 9 months pregnant, I actually got down and crawled under a parked car to get it after it fell out of my purse. Not a pretty picture…but obviously I love it. Jessica sent me “Tease”, such a fabulous color…not too out there and more than gloss…perfect!

AND NOW for my favorite part!!!!!

Darling Jessica has offered up FOUR Holiday Hand Sets to you lucky ducks!!!

To enter…

1. Head on over to Jessica’s Pink Papaya Facebook page and tell her hello and that The Farmer’s Trophy Wife sent you!!

2. For more entries…tweet, facebook and/or blog about this giveaway, send them all over to Jessica’s facebook page to enter and tell us that you did so on her comment wall!

And that’s it!!! So easy! And we will close the contest in one week (November 28th) at midnight and then we will make the draw for four lucky winners!!!

Good luck and thanks again to Jessica for this fabulous opportunity and GIVEAWAY!!!
