First up is a competition from one of Beauty Insignia's favourite cosmetics companies, Dr. Organic - sold at Holland & Barrett shops. They're looking for a face to fit the brand; someone who uses organic products, is passionate and dedicated about natural beauty and could well be the face of Dr. Organic!

The competition is open to women over eighteen, and the rewards are potentially great. Not only will you be the face behind the Dr. Organic collection and enjoy a professional photoshoot, you'll also be given a luxurious weekend break for you and a friend. To top it all, if you've ever fancied becoming a professional model, you'll be given the opportunity to win a modelling contract with Premier Model Management!

The competition is being judged by Carole White, co-founder of Premier Model Management, one of the world's leading agencies (they discovered Naomi Campbell!). Also judging is Jo Fairley, co-author of the Beauty Bible series and famed perfume critic; editor Ellie Hughes, from Holland & Barrett's best-selling Healthy magazine; and Steve Quinn, the co-founder of Dr. Organic.

Submit your details and two pictures via their facebook page before 12th October 2013 to be in with a chance of winning. Good luck!

P.S. Both the Healthy magazine and Beauty Bible websites have other competitions and giveaways that don't involve sending in pictures, for those of us who tremble at the sight of a camera!

Now, this offer is more 'me'. L'Occitane are arranging an exclusive customer evening called Night Out In Provence, which is not, unfortunately, an actual night out in Provence. Instead they are in-store events to be held on 22nd August between 6:30 pm and 8:30 pm just for mail subscribers and their guests. It's advertised as an exclusive 'closed-door' event, all you have to do is phone your local participating boutique to book your place.

Find your nearest boutique here: L'Occitane Stores

You'll receive cosmetic and fragrance advice from L'Occitane experts, a free hand massage and 10% off all non-sale items. If you do buy something you'll also receive an unspecified petit gift. L'Occitane sell a wide range of products for face, body and hair as well as personal and home fragrances, all of which are high quality and (mostly) natural.

  1. Congratulations to 21 year old Abi Riley from Manchester who was chosen out of all the entrants to become the face of Dr Organic!

    Well done :)

  2. Of course, you can always supplement this with your natural regime. Next time you read face cream reviews, always check ingredients. You deserve nothing less.
