Sun Shades Lip Balm Giveaway!

To celebrate my own recent delivery of the cutest Call Me Cards ever by Stuck on You, I thought I'd offer my own giveaway in appreciation! 


Spring is just around the corner, I keep telling myself.  ☻And Spring is actually the time when the sun's rays are most powerful and have the most punch.  The UVB and UVA rays are at their strongest.  Many people are fooled by this because it still feels cool outside and so they neglect to properly protect their skin.


I'd like to share a product line in a company called Melaleuca. Sun Shades is the line that has everything to do with being out in the sun.  They have after-sun care, sunscreen, and SPF 15 lip balm.  The sunscreen uses a unique form of zinc oxide that rubs in clear, so there is no white or colored residue.  It is the best sunscreen I have ever used - not greasy or smelling of chemicals.  My skin stays moist and unburned.



-->
"Experts say the best protection against UVA is a sunscreen that includes zinc oxide, titanium dioxide or avobenzone. Consumers should also look for those that are water-resistant and have an SPF of 30 or better, indicating strong protection against UVB rays, and apply liberally and often."  -Linda Johnson, Associated Press



Another great Sun Shades product is their lip balm. It contains melanin, your natural lip protector.  It also has natural moisturizers like jojoba oil, cocoa butter and beeswax.  There are no fillers or harmful chemicals.  It actually rejuvenates my lips when I use it.  It is a must-have product at my house.  I never get chapped or dry lips when I have Sun Shades lip balm on hand!

--> Lips contain very little melanin—the natural skin pigment that helps screen out the sun’s harmful rays. With SPF 15, Sun Shades lip balms pamper and protect your lips with natural moisturizers like jojoba oil, cocoa butter, and beeswax. Antioxidant vitamin E fights free radicals while T36-C5® Melaleuca Oil penetrates and soothes. These lip-smacking balms “weatherproof ” your lips and help keep them soft.

 Available in Harvest Berry, Mountain Mint, Vanilla Bean, Sugar & Spice and PiƱa Colada flavors, Sun Shades lip balm moisturize and protect your lips for hours

GET IT:  Get a 3-pack at retail cost of $8.50 plus shipping and tax by calling Melaleuca ordering department at 1-800-282-3000.  Please tell them that I referred you and give them my name, Helena Lemon and id # 8014717669.  

Win It:  Winner chooses 3 flavors of their choice to be delivered to them via UPS.  Available entries are below and should each be listed with a separate comment:

  • Follow me on Twitter (or on my sidebar)
  • Follow me on Networked Blogs (on my sidebar)

  • Tweet this giveaway (please include @Melahelen in your tweet)  You can tweet once per day! 
  • Blog about this giveaway and provide a link back to here! (3 extra entries if blogged before 2/19/10)

This contest ends on 2/26/10 at 11:59 AM MST.  A winner will be chosen at random by random.org number generator.  The winner will be e-mailed and asked for mailing info and preferred lip flavors.  Please respond no later than 48 hours after notification or another winner will be chosen!  E-mail address must be available on your blog, profile, or in your comments.  Good luck and thanks for being beautiful bloggers!

I'm not good at taking care of my lips. They always get so dry so I try to keep up with them with some sort of chapstick. They've gotten so bad I've had to use the new neosporin lip treatment! Thanks for offering this great giveaway!

I don't need to win any, I buy them in the bulk. Just stopping in to say, I LOVE sun shades. Use the Vanilla all the time...like the cranberry tangerine, too; but it is seasonal.

I am always putting some kind of lip balm on my lips, I am not picky about the brand as long as it feels/smells good. I've never heard of Sun Shades; would love to try it!

I do use a ton of lip balm, but I will be honest, I haven't been looking to see if it has SPF protection, but I promise I will from now on!!

to take care of my lips I try to put sunscreen on them whenever I'm putting it on my face.I also try to keep a tube of lip balm near, but with an 10 month old I switch from diaper bag to purse and always forget my gloss/balm!

I have gotten much better at buying lip balm and using it year round not just after I have a problem. The only way to accomplish this is to keep some in the pocket of various coats that I wear. I keep some in my car, my laptop bag and my purse. Lip balms fortunately go on sale often as they are of the size and shape that lends itself to getting lost or left behind.
