With all the steamy talk around this joint lately – between the recipes to make your own love balm and yesterday’s thought-provoking post on attraction and passion, I thought now would be a perfect time to share some of the good stuff that was sent my way.
See, recently the makers of Aloe Cadabra contacted me to see if I’d like to offer their product to you. And then they sent me the 3-pack sampler that you see to the left.
When they said they wanted to send me a sample, I expected a few little squeezy packets. Not the whole shebang.
With trembling fingers, I tore into the huge package and immediately opened the french lavender. It smells like running through the English countryside, the gentle wind tousling your hair as you throw it back and smile at the Orlando-Bloom-esque man who’s frolicking behind you carrying a bouquet of flowers and an engagement ring.
But, sorry. You can’t win that one. I opened it. It’s mine.
And I keep looking longingly at the other two boxes full of aloe goodness, but I know in my heart that the universe wants me to pass on the love.
Now, I can’t give you a full monte review here, because I haven’t used the Aloe Cadabra in it’s, um, marketed use. As you know, Fiance’s out of town and … yeah.
However! I will tell you that this stuff is AWESOME as a hand softener. I use it a couple of times a day – just slather it on – and my hands don’t only smell divine, but they’re super soft.
And it worked wonders that one time a few days ago when I forgot that the backs of hands and broilers ne’re should meet. I had a huge burn that is now completely healed (four days later), and I gotta thank Aloe Cadabra for that magic.
I can only dream of the other kinds of magic it could bring.
The Scoop on How to Enter
Okay. So what’s up for grabs here is Two Unopened Boxes/Bottles of Aloe Cadabra – Tahitian Vanilla and Natural Aloe. The three-box set retails for $30, so what you’re getting is a $20 value.
(Right? I’m horrible at math.)
Now, because of a personal nature, I have decided that the way you could possibly win this awesome stuff is by subscribing to the Crunchy Betty Newsletter.
That way, the only people who know you’ve entered to win this stuff is you and me. I’m giving you privacy here. You’re welcome.
And this is how it works.
- You sign up for the newsletter, and your email address gets added to the pool.
- On Tuesday, I will use a randomizer to pick one person from the mailing list as the winner.
- You will then receive a confirmation email if you’re the winner (along with a request for your shipping address).
- If you’re the winner, you will start planning your romantic future date with your husband or Orlando Bloom (I’m not here to judge you).
Now, here’s the rub: To be fair, I’m including all the people who have previously signed up for the newsletter in this drawing. However! They may not want this particular product.
And if they do not, I will then redraw and move on to the next person.
(For the record, I don’t have many people signed up at the moment, so your chances of winning are pretty dang high.)
Finally, if you want to announce it to the world that you just signed up to win personal lubricant – please post this on your Twitter account, Facebook, or write it on your forehead with a Sharpie.
And then leave a comment here and tell me what your first kiss was like.
(I’ll start. My first “real kiss” felt like his tongue was shedding in my mouth. I almost threw up. I was in 7th grade. I didn’t “kiss” again until high school. Ew.
Not very romantic, yeah?
You can beat THAT story.)
