Review and Giveaway: The Art of Shaving and a $25 Apothica Gift Card (CLOSED)

For those of you who are seeking for a hassle free way to shop, Apothica is the place to visit. They carry a vast range of trusted brand names that cater to both men and women.  The site offers products from cosmetics to home décor.  Are you a makeup enthusiast? This is the place for you! Whether you’re looking for mineral makeup or popularized brands like Bobbi Brown, Shiseido, Christian Dior, Vincent Longo; they are readily available at Apothica.

The best eyelash curler I’ve used and highly recommend is from Shiseido.
Take a gander at their array of products:  http://makeup.apothica.com/shiseido.html

“I’d like to shop but I’m in dire straits.”  You need not worry for there are great bargains for every budget! Sign up for a Member Newsletter and get a 10% discount for you and your friends! Receive the best possible deals by being a member. The website’s layout is organized for your shopping convenience. View the new arrival, best sellers, sales, limited edition collections and more! You can now view the Apothica Catalog 2011 online. 

Get the detailed product description, ideal users for the product, full list of ingredients, shelf life, how to use the product and best of all, customer reviews and ratings. What better way to base the product on than firsthand experience.



The wide array of beauty products are enticing yet I thought to myself, “What about something for the hubsters?”   I gave my husband a trial kit of The Art of Shaving (unscented) which came with a  Pre Shave Oil 15ml/0.5oz,  Shaving Cream 30ml/1oz and an After Shave Balm 15ml/0.5oz.  Getting him the kit has benefited me equally as much. He cut down from shaving every two days to once in ten days. Of course, the number of days will vary depending on the man’s hair growth but there will be a significant difference. The results were favorable and I was so impressed with it.
You can purchase a starter kit for $24.80 or surprise him with a luxurious travel kit priced at $208.31 for his birthday. I believe this will make a suitable present that you both will enjoy. You can select from either a lavender or unscented formula. I opted for the latter yet there was a distinctive odor in it. I can’t help but lay extra kisses on his cheek after every perfect shave for it gives my husband the soft and supple skin that lures me in every time.
