WIN! Baby Days: Bébé from Fruits & Passion April 6, 2009

delicate-baby-bouquet

If you visit this blog regularly, you know I am a huge fan of Fruits & Passion so it’s no surprise that Bébé, their line of products for newborns, makes it into Baby Days.

Before we get to Bébé, remember that in true Shinypackages style, we’ll be giving away a couple of a prize packs featuring most of the product we review at the end of it all. Prizes are still rolling in so we’re not quite sure of what you might win (probably lots of stuff!).

Bébé smells like a baby. I opened the bottle of Delicate Baby Bouquet (yes, the one you’ll be winning) and I had a nearly uncontrollable urge to wrap my 10-year-old son on a receiving blanket and rock him to sleep. Delicate Baby Bouquet is baby’s first fragrance, just in case baby doesn’t smell sweet enough on any given day. It smells like baby powder and a tall icy glass of lemonade. I’m not sure if it’s allowed or not but I just might adopt this as my own fragrance (Gee Shel, you smell as fresh as a baby!)

The Bébé line is free of alcohol, parabens and colourants, as it should be. And like all Fruits & Passion products, the packaging is pretty as can be. Makes a super baby shower gift.

A selection of Bébé products is part of our Baby Days prize pack. If you win, you’ll get Delicate Baby Bouquet, $30, Ultra Gentle Cleansing Foam, $18, Oatmeal Bath Milk, $20 and Massage Oil, $20.

WIN! Baby Days: The Very Hungry Caterpillar

9780399250392bWelcome to Baby Days at Shinypackages! Stay tuned Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week for product reviews of all things baby. And in true Shinypackages style, we’ll be giving away a couple of a prize packs featuring most of the product we review at the end of it all. Prizes are still rolling in so we’re not quite sure of what you might win (probably lots of stuff!).

Isn’t shopping for baby stuff just the best? I was at a shower on the weekend and one of the guests kept saying “I just couldn’t resist!” as the mom-to-be opened gift after gift of tiny bibs, cutesy socks and even a box of Baby’s Own soap (if you’re looking to recapture that baby smell, this is the product!).

First on our list of baby things is a selection of books from Penguin Group Canada. The star is the 40th anniversary edition of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and this time it’s a pop-up book. I first came across this all-time favourite at my friend Ian’s photography studio. He needs something to keep wee ones occupied as they wait for their chance to become Canada’s Next Top Model (or at least appear in a flyer). That copy was threadbare and had seen its share of peanut butter hands but it certainly did the trick for keeping squirmy models occupied.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar pop up book retails for $33 and it’s part of our Baby Days prize pack.

The last time I had a make-up lesson, Duran Duran was hungry like the wolf and Prince was driving a little red corvette. Needless to say, I can use a little refresher course. The good folks at The Body Shop have come to my rescue with a step-by-step Webisode (I learned that new word today) featuring their new Roseflower Collection for spring.

The short video is hosted by Chase Aston, an international celebrity make-up artist with a delightful British accent that makes everything he says sound fabulous. The Roseflower Collection starts at $14 and includes eye colour, blush, lip shades and more.

TO WIN A $200 BASKET: Click on the link below (or paste it into your browser) to watch the video then drop me a short e-mail with the answer to this questions. Name one of Chase’s two ‘must-haves’ for spring make-up. Hint: He reveals his picks near the end of the video.

Send your answer to shel@shelzolkewich.com by Friday, March 13.
