The Radical Uprise Giveway.


It’s that time.  Are you ready?  Free stuff rules.

For those of you who don’t know, Dr. Bronner’s makes my favorite soaps.  They are simple, basic, fabulous and refreshing – AND (if I may add) their labels can be quite the read if you’re in the bathroom for a while taking care of …er… business.

I started out using the liquid peppermint, but can’t use it in the winter.  It’s a great soap, but the peppermint made me too cold, you see.  It almost felt like I was washing my body in mouth wash – in a good way, of course.  So, winter rolled around and I purchased their almond soap.  I bought the largest bottle, so I’ve still got a ways to go before I run out.  However, I have several (and by several I mean a couple hundred) bars of Dr. Bronner’s peppermint soap bars, and figured since the weather is warming up, it would be a good time to start giving them away.

What do I love about Dr. Bronner’s?  It’s 100% vegan.  No animal testing.  No detergents.  I can pronounce everything on the label.  It just basically rules.

How the giveaway works:  Comment this article.  No reblogging.  No spamming your friends.  No tweeting.  Just comment.  How about you comment with five things that make you feel refreshed?  This should set the mood, eh?  I’ll even start:

  • Chugging a huge glass of ice water.
  • Long full body massages.
  • A good night’s sleep.
  • Meditation.
  • Diving into a cold pool on a hot summer’s day.
What about you?  What makes you feel refreshed?  Comment with five things, and you’ll have a chance to win some of this refreshing soap!  ONE winner will be chosen at random.

What you win*:  A small flat rate box stuffed with as many bars as I can squeeze in.  You should be set for a few months (or maybe even a good year or two) on soap.

A winner will be chosen on Friday.  The last day to comment is Thursday.

*PLEASE NOTE:  This particular giveaway is for US residents only (due to international rates).  Please make sure you comment with a valid e-mail address. 

Good  luck!
