For Him + An Amazing Giveaway

I had the great fortune of getting to meet Sherry Okamura, the digital salon director of Urbaca salon, facial genius, and creator of the line of paraben, sulfate and cruelty free skin/body/home care products at Okamura Farmacopia, the past few months here in Portland. I went on and on about the amazing first facial (of my life) she gave me and have been wandering around as a hair advertisement for the salon, Urbaca, for the past month or so. I am a firm believer in both Urbaca and Sherry's magic so thrilled that I get to introduce you to Sherry's Okamura Farmacopia with an awesome series of giveaways this holiday season on the blog. I have a line of her products currently at my house including some amazing aromatherapy toners and fantastic, gentle cleansers, so I can attest that you want this line of products and you should absolutely enter to win. 

The first giveaway of this series is something I've got on the brain lately - stocking stuffers or gifts for the man that cares a bit more about himself than your average football fan in a tucked-in polo shirt. I've been hearing the word lumbersexual thrown about with wild abandon lately and while I think it's rather silly, this strikes me as the perfect gift for that plaid wearing, but still skin-care conscious lumberjack in your life. My own part-lumberjack but mostly medical student, is obsessed with a good skincare regimen, in part because he's a doctor and sees what happens when you don't care for your skin, but also because he likes to look and smell good. These beard oils will do just that - just a drop will leave you smelling and feeling amazing. They actually work really well as a shaving oil, too! Each of Sherry's beard oils run about $23 for one ounce and are packed with essential oils like lavender, tea-tree, and chamomile. This is a gigantic giveaway - a line-up of five of these awesome oils that I'm pretty sure fit perfectly into Christmas gift packaging. More info on entering below.

This giveaway, for all of the beard oils above, will run from today, 11/26 through 12/10. Enter below. The giveaway is open to U.S. residents and a winner will be randomly selected on the 10th!
