The first giveaway in my 'fall/winter 2011-12' series is here! One winner, who will be picked randomly, will get all of the items shown in the 2 photos below (scroll down for list of items and how to enter)

Here's what you can win:

- 30 ml bottle of Prada Candy, their newest fragrance, which I reviewed here.

- Guerlain Super Aqua Hands Cream with SPF15, it comes in a 75 ml tube.

- big bottle (500ml) of Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water, the cleanser/toner that many models swear by. It's a really great product, you can read more about it here.

- a Dior makeup bag, filled with Dior samples, including DiorShow Iconic Mascara, Hydra Life Skin Energizer Hydrating Serum, Capture Totale Multi-Perfection Crème and Hydra Life Eye Crème.

- Thierry Mugler Angel Deo Roll-On in 50 ml. The Deo Roll-On version of the fragrance, easier to wear if you find the Eau de Parfum too strong.

- 2 Bourjois nail polishes: So Laque Ultra Shine in Bleu Mysterieux and 1 Second in Prune Stellaire

-  Palmer's Swivel Stick with Vitamin E to keep your lips moisturized. It's a life saver for my dry lips and it tastes like chocolate :)

- Nivea Glamorous Gloss in Natural, a tinted lip balm with SPF 30+

- Samples of the famous L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream, which if you haven't tried, you need to, it's one of best hand creams ever and Thierry Mugler Angel Innocent Body Milk.

All items are brand new. This giveaway is OPEN INTERNATIONALLY.

Hi Smaranda!

I'm using dermalogica skincare products at the moment, and I d like them! HOwever, they get very expensive and most of the time, their products irritate my skin ". I'm okay for the most part but I can't wait to use them up'! They are good though. I have been reading uP on paula choice line and I am intending to make some purchases under her line! Have a great month of october!;) I love to use Clinique ddm gel too! Most importantly, I enjoy trying out the brands produce that paula"s choice cosmetics cop review and reccommend, I must say, she has not failed me! :) reapply happpy:))
