Win 1 of 3 Clarins Beauty Passport Sets for Your Holiday!

As it’s almost holiday time I’m sure many of you will be jetting off on your vacations soon! You get to unwind, relax and enjoy this festive time with your family, which for me is always the best part of the year. Because I just recently started work I wont be having too much of a holiday, but I am still getting a little break. I was hoping to get away to Thailand but that will have to wait until next year, so for now I will be going down to the coast with my family, which of course is lovely! To help me get holiday ready I am currently using this mean trio from Clarins and today I have 3 of these hampers to giveaway to 3 readers!


Around Christmas time Clarins always comes out with beautiful sets (and value packs!). This is the Body Care Collection, which includes the Moisture Rich Body Lotion, an Exfoliating Body Scrub and the Hand and Nail Treatment Cream. I have used and loved the Body Lotion before and its scent is just amazing! I mostly use it in winter when my skin is a bit drier so if you are jetting off to a colder destination for some skiing or shopping, this is a winner to have in your luggage!


If you are visiting a tropical destination this summer (lucky you!) then I definitely recommend trying the Exfoliating Body Scrub. It is a small little tube that will comfortably fit into your carry-on luggage, and its great to use after the beach to scrub off all that sand! The little Hand and Nail Treatment is also always good to have with you, especially on long haul flights. My skin gets extremely dry and dehydrated while I’m up-the-air, so I make sure to drink lots of water and keep my hands moisturized! The pack also comes with an awesome gold cosmetics bag that you can store your make-up goodies in while you are traveling! The whole set retail for R430 while it has the value of R720!


To carry on with the fun Christmas vibe on the blog today, you can win 1 of 3 Clarins Beauty Passport Body Gift Sets as you prepare to jet off on holiday! To enter comment on this post and tell me, where are you spending this holiday season? For an extra entry you can tweet me your answer (@irinadoman) using the hasntag #ClarinsBeautyPassport. There will be 3 winners, and the competition will run until Sunday night!:) Good luck!

    since I’m saving up to travel to Thailand next year, I won’t be going anywhere to fancy or extravagant this festive season. But I can’t wait to spend my time off lounging at the beach with frozen watermelon and mango as snacks and occasional dips into the cold cape water!?☺️? #ClarinsBeautyPassport

    Mosselbay…..It really is one of the most beautiful coastal towns in South Africa. And it caters for every need : 3 huge shopping malls, seafood restaurants, oyster bars, sushi, cocktail hours with views to die for. And of course, spotless beaches with tranquil ice blue sea. ( ….plus Granny to do some much needed babysitting! )

    This holiday season we will spend a chunk at home (but still having fun) but Christmas time will be with my mother and sisters in Scottburgh KZN where my children hook up with their cousins and have loads of fun and we all marvel at how much they have grown and generally have a fun, beachy, laidback time (and let my mother enjoying cooking for us again yay). This Christmas I’ve vowed not to stress and run around but rather sit back and catch up with family and friends, even if it means I eat only salad on Christmas day! hee hee

    I will be spending my holidays exploring Cape Town 🙂 My friend is coming down from Australia and I’ll be showing her around. She doesn’t drink so I’ll actually be having good clean fun instead of parking myself in front of the cocktail bar all summer :). We’re going to do so much sight seeing and going to touristy places I haven’t been to in years. I think I’m more excited than her 🙂

    I just had a baby, so will definitely be spending it at home with my 3 kids and husband. It would be great to win though, perhaps if a blue moon appears and all 3 kids are sleeping at the same time, I could imagine I’m at a spa on some exotic beach while having my very own Clarins pamper session 🙂

    My hands have been so dry lately, I’d love to try the hand and nail cream. Awesome giveaway!

    Hello Irina! This holiday I will be spending time at home in Southern California. My family will be traveling to Dallas TX this year.
    Unfortunately due to work, I will not be able to accompany them. But the good news is that I will be able to spend time with my boyfriend and his wonderful family so that definitely makes up for it. Although I’m not able to spend this christmas with my own family, I am so excited and feel very blessed to be joining in on their festivities. ☺️

    I will be taking a fantastic trip to Knysna, travelling along the Garden Route. The first thing that comes to mind in trying to describe it is a neat ‘slice of heaven‘. Picture a small town, with breathtaking views of beaches and lagoons, a tonne of fun activities, much wildlife to explore yet can be one of the most relaxing places you can set (bare)foot on in South Africa… That’s Knysna.The magic about this heavenly destination is that whether you’re on holiday with great company, family, or a romantic getaway, it’s near impossible to be disappointed. I have tweeted as well @rehanaseedat
