New Year’s resolutions. We’ve all made them (whether we admit it or not) and we’ve all broken them (whether we admit it or not…). This year, I’d like to try to make others’ resolutions a little more fun with some great giveaways. During the month of January, Trend Watch columns will bounce off resolutions as a theme, and suggest some resolutions you may want to consider. To make it interesting, each resolution will have a fun giveaway to help you achieve your resolution goal.
First off, you may want to consider resolving to take better care of yourself. Starting with your skin. The largest organ we have, and yet so often woefully neglected. Your skin may be feeling horrible, pallid, dry and scaly at this time of year.
There’s a new Canadian company called Consonant Body Organic Skincare to the rescue. Bill Baker, the Canadian ad guy-turned-entrepreneur who researched and created Consonant now considers himself the expert in the field in this country.
Bill set out to create pure products that are pleasurable and stylish as well as pure. He likes to say that one could love Consonant because it’s "green" or in spite of it. I tried these products and enjoyed the fragrance, feel and efficacy of the soaps, shower wash and body lotion
I also really enjoyed the clean design of the bottles and the amusing labels on the products. The Organic Body Lotion invites you in with its label, "Hey you. Yeah you. I see you there with that cheeky grin on your face. Wondering whether this premium organic lotion will feel as good as the compliments you’ll no doubt receive after using it." Did I mention that Bill Baker’s a former ad guy?
These products are available at better beauty supply boutiques and online.
So, let your new year’s resolution be that you’ll take better care of your skin by leaving me a comment below with your resolution for 2009 (be sure to include your e-mail address so that I can contact you if you’re the winner) for a chance to win a great gift box of Consonant products valued at over $130.
