Giveaway: Trio of Dove products

Is one of your New Year resolutions going to be to look after yourself a bit more? If your body needs a little bit of TLC why not enter my latest giveaway? My latest prize is for a trio of Dove products thanks to Unilever. You could win: Deeply Nourishing body wash, Derma Spa Body cream and Original 48h Anti-Perspirant Deodorant. That’s enough to make you clean, soft and smelling beautiful, what better way to start the New Year?

Dove supports Be Real which is campaigning to change attitudes to body image. Dove research found that 7 in 10 women and 6 in 10 girls in the uK think the media and advertisers set an unrealistic standard of beauty that most women can’t achieve. According to the Be Real Campaign 60% of people in the UK are ashamed of their appearance. That is huge.


As I sit here with no make up, a face full of spots and slightly over weight I’m not about to post a selfie of how I look. I don’t love my reflection when I look in the mirror, but I have come to tolerate it. I am hoping I can teach my daughters to be more confident in their bodies than I am in mine. I am careful about what I say about my body in front of my eldest daughter because she doesn’t see anything wrong with how I look. I won’t let people talk about “diets” in front of her, but they can talk about healthy eating. She see’s me putting my make up on and has long been asking to have her own. She is 5 years old. I bought her some make up for her birthday because I want to protect mine, but it is subtle make up and I have made it clear that she doesn’t need it. It is hard to explain why I choose to enhance how I look with make up (or hide behind it) and she shouldn’t. It is important that as she becomes more aware of adverts she is exposed to real people who are beautiful and not just air brushed images.

You can enter the giveaway via the Rafflecopter widget below. All normal T&C's apply (you can read them in the widget). Giveaway closes 1st January 2017 at midnight.
