Giveaway: $50 Gift Card - CLOSED

Apothica decided to sponsor a giveaway for my readers. You have a chance to win a $50 gift card for All you have to do is follow the rules and enter the giveaway. =)

What is Apothica?
Apothica is an online beauty boutique, which carries the finest selection of skin care, body care, aromatherapy, and cosmetic products on the market. Some of the brands you can find on Apothica are: Barielle, Chanel, Clinique, Deborah Lippmann, Dior, Essie, Kerastase, La Mer, NARS, Shiseido, Smashbox, SpaRitual, Stila, Too Faced ... and many more. I dare to say they have something for everybody – even for those who use organic products.

Entry Possibilities
MANDATORY: You have to be a follower of my blog via Google Friend Connect. (2 entries)

OPTIONAL (for extra entries):
  • Become a fan of Apothica on Facebook. (1 entry)
  • Follow Apothica on Twitter. (1 entry)
  • Retweet Apothica's tweet about my giveaway. (2 entries)
  • Write a comment about Apothica. (2 entries)
  • Subscribe to Apothica Newsletter - found at the bottom of the website. (2 entries)
  • Write blog post with a link directed to any brand Apothica is offering. Make sure you write at least 100 words and link to where you found the brand on Apothica’s website. (7 entries)
So, there's a total of 17 entries.

How to enter?
Log into your Google Friend Connect account and write a comment with all your entries in one post. Don't forget to add your e-mail address, so I can contact you if you win. Also: provide names (Facebook, Twitter) and links (retweet, blog post), so I can check if your entries are valid. 

EDIT: You don't have to state you Facebook name in the comments if you don't want to. We'll check that if you win. =)

Giveaway ends on Friday - November 19th, 2010 (at 11:00 AM CET). That's 2 weeks from now.

Winner Information
  • Winner will be notified by me and will have to provide me with contact information to be forwarded to Apothica.
  • Apothica will contact the winner to verify information is correct.
  • After verification, Apothica will email the a code for the gift card to be used at, and
  • Please make sure to save SkinCareRx as a contact in your e-mail box, so that their e-mail won't go to the Spam/Junk Mail folder.

Apothica ships worldwide, but they do not ship to all the countries (Slovenia is among them). I know that's a huge disappointment for my Slovenian readers and I'm really sorry. I decided to host a giveaway anyway, since a lot of my readers are from the USA. Once again, I'm sorry... I hope they'll start shipping to Slovenia soon. 

Giveaway is otherwise international - as long as Apothica ships to your country. 

Good luck!

    I'm almost afraid to put together an Apothica order; there's too much to choose from. Just the Demeter fragrances and the nail polish alone could make a decision almost impossible.
