Celebration of being a woman Giveaway

**Competition Closed – winner Jane ***

I was really hoping to do this awesome Giveaway on the 29 for Leap Year. I wanted to celebrate women as it was the day I was going to ask The Geek to marry me. But I was so nervous and in such a flap that it just never happened. I have at last come down to ground and to celebrate our engagement and to celebrate women I have a great giveaway from Esse Organics. If you missed the full set of pictures of the engagement then here they are Cazpix flickr

I got a cleanser and moisturiser to try and have been very impressed. I am 34 and so my skin in getting on a bit and showing signs of age but someone did not let my sebaceous gland know that I am not 15 any more. I often struggle to moisturize without getting a break out. But this one seems to have the right balance of care for my skin yet not oily or greasy at all. They smell so wonderful, are good for the environment and help community upliftment. What more could a woman want from her skin care range.
