40 Followers Giveaway! - CLOSED


So a while back I hit 40 follows on GFC (now 45!) and I promised a giveaway......I'm now finally getting round to putting it up! Some of you may wonder why I'm doing a giveaway at 40 followers...and to that I answer "4 is my lucky number but it seemed a little silly to do a giveaway at 4 followers!" I think if I add up my followers on Hellocotton and Bloglovin' I've got a few over 50 now and I still find it a little weird yet exciting that people want to actively read my waffling on beauty products/random stuff! So I've decided to do this giveaway as a little thank you to everyone who reads my blog. Now then, I can't give something to everyone unfortunately but because I've taken so long to put this up I've done it in 3 separate that means 3 of you can win something! Yay! They all contain some of my favourite items plus a few extra little freebies that I've acquired (I'm not made of money unfortunately!) that I thought might be nice as an extra little treat. Sorry for the bad quality pictures, I still haven't found my camera cable (the curse of tidying up drastically and putting things in "safe" places!)

So a few rules for the giveaway:
  • I've decided that I'm going to open this to UK and International followers - as the end date is after payday I think I can afford the extra postage!
  • This isn't about gaining extra followers but I don't want to give these away to random people so this means that you must be a follower of my blog via GFC, Hellocotton or Bloglovin' (please state which one as I will be checking. Or if you follow my blog some other way then please let me know that too!)
  • You can only enter once but you can gain extra entries in the following ways - Leave me a blog post with your email address in and an answer to the question "What's you favourite Summer colours for nails and lips?" These are my two favourite beauty products so I love to hear what others like! (or if you're uncomfortable with leaving your email address you can email me directly (my email is on the right hand side near the top), but still leave a comment so I know which you've done!), follow me on Twitter (@RobynWBB), Tweet about the giveaway and lastly, you can do a blogpost about the giveaway. All of these give you one entry point but the only one that is mandatory is the first one so that I can know who has entered! (see what I did there.....4 ways to enter, 4 points to's not a bit too OCD is it?! Haha!)
  • The giveaway starts now and finishes at midday on the 4th of June. This means that I'll hopefully be able to contact the winners on the day and get the items posted on the Wednesday! I will give the winners 48 hours to reply and if they haven't replied then I'll redraw to be fair. I will be sending the prizes out via 2nd class (again, I'm really not made of money!) just to make it a little cheaper for me!
  • If you have any questions about the giveaway then feel free to give me a shout and ask them :)
Good luck to all of you and thank you all for being wonderful followers of my blog!

Here are the bundles you could win:

First prize is:
  • Original Source Mint and Tea Tree Sample - One of my favourite shower gels!
  • Pantene Pro-V 2min Deep Repair Masque - I love hair masks and this is a nice quick easy one to do.
  • Natural Collection Hydrating Hair Mask - One of my favourite hair masks! Leaves my hair super soft!
  • NYC Waterproof Mascara in Jet Black - I found these mascaras to be very handy for my handbag, plus the waterproof aspect is always a bonus!
  • 17 Pressed Powder in Nicely Natural - this is my go to face powder at the moment!
  • MUA Blusher in Shade 2 - I love MUA! So cheap but so good! This is my favourite colour for everyday.
  • ELF Liquid Lipstick in Ruby Slipper - I love these lipsticks. Somewhere between a lipstick and a gloss plus the colour payoff is great!
  • GOSH High Shine Top Coat - This is a great top coat and really is super shiny! The bottle is a little sticky from the damn security tag though (just to pre-warn you!)
  • MUA Nail Polish in Shade 11 - I love silver polish and these are only £1!! This colour looks beautiful alone or with a bright accent nail.
  • 17 Nail File - Always handy for in handbags!
  • Benefit's Bathina "Take a lasts longer..." - This was a sample from when I first started my job and I LOVE the scent of it and (having tested it on counter) I do love the slight shimmer for Summer, but as I already have something quite similar to this I decided to give it away to one of you lovely readers! As it was a sample it doesn't come with the lovely velvety puff but I've popped my (unused) ELF one from in my High Definition Powder - it's just as soft I promise!

Second Prize is:
  •  Benefit Moisture Prep Sample - This is a lovely toning lotion and is a really popular product at work. You use it before moisturising day or night and all you need to do is gently tap it onto your face and allow it to do it's thing! (side note: this sample will last a few days if you have somewhere you can prop it up so it won't spill out anywhere!)
  • Natural Collection Hydrating Hair Mask - See above for reasons as to why this is included!
  • 17 Hide and Chic Eye Brightening Concealer in Light Rose - I love this under eye concealer! Really brightens my eyes on those days where I seem to have panda eyes!
  • NYC Lengthening Mascara in Jet Black - Again, I do quite like this mascara. I think it really lives up to its colour name too!
  • MUA Nail Polish in Shade 22 - This is one of my favourite non-shimmery purples That I've ever used! I use my one quite a lot in nail art because the formula is really good for water marbling.
  • MUA Blusher in Shade 4 - This is a beautiful coral colour and it looks gorgeous on everyone! I love coral colours for their warming properties and for a nice natural glow.

Third Prize is:
  • MUA Nail Polish in Shade 15 - I love love LOVE bright pink on my nails and this one is BRIGHT! It's almost neon pink and is a love of mine to brighten up outfits and dull days!
  • NYC Waterproof Mascara in Jet Black - See above as to why this is included!
  • MUA Blusher in Shade 1 - This is a gorgeous bright pink to match the nail polish. A little bit of this goes a long way but I love it for a nice pop of colour on my cheeks!
  • Natural Collection Hydrating Hair Mask - Seriously, I love this mask so much I needed to make sure it was included in all of the prizes!
  • Benefit's Triple Performing Moisturiser Sample - This moisturiser is great for everyone because it's oil free, so it'll hydrate your skin but not make any oily patches any oilier! It also has an SPF of 15 in it too which is handy for the summer days coming up. Again, a little of this goes a long way so you don't need to use the whole sachet in one go!

So there are the 3 prizes that you could win. I tried to include something for face, nails and hair in all of them and I hope you like the mix of products (seriously...that hair mask is AMAZING! Haha!) I'll put all your names in a hat and pick out first, second and third prizes....unfortunately you can't win more than one prize so if I pick your name twice you'll get whichever prize I picked your name for first (it'll be the slightly bigger prize anyway!)

So good luck to everyone and I hope I get at least 3 entries otherwise someone will be getting all 3! Haha!

Until next time,
