The Sunday Scoop 10/5/14 – giveaway time

Hi from Marcia. It’s been a long time since I was able to get onto a computer to do anything for the BIZ. I’m slowly making my way back. I’m home from 7 weeks in hospitals and rehabilitation centers but I’m still not walking. I’m unable to take pictures so my reviews will be sparse for now. But I’m home and working towards getting back to life as I knew it before. I’m here to share giveaways since I know you all love them. Lisa has been busy adding more to Beauty Info Zone and she has more lined up. As far as packages for winners from August, everything will be sent but it’s going to take a while since my computer room is on the 2nd floor and I can’t walk steps. Sorry about that.

Dove #OneShowerChallenge giveaway!

At the Emmys this year, Dove began their #OneShowerChallenge.  Women were asked to try the new Dove Body Wash for softer, smoother skin after only one shower.  Today we have a giveaway for these body washes, plus a beautiful #OneShowerChallenge inspired necklace!



Dove sent us the body washes, and I couldn’t wait to try them to see if they really did give me a ‘skinnovation’. I am happy to report that they truly deliver.

The Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash has a fabulous lather that nourishes the skin.  It’s especially great for those with dry skin, and it’s gentle enough for sensitive skin.

Those with very sensitive skin will want the Dove Sensitive Skin Nourishing Body Wash, which has a hypoallergenic formula.  This is unscented, and it cleans, moisturizes, and doesn’t leave skin feeling tight.

If you have very dry skin, opt for the Dove Gentle Exfoliating Body Wash.  This exfoliating cream has tiny beads that sloughs off flakiness and bumps while also cleansing and moisturizing.

Dove Nutrient Moisture Body Wash

Dove Nutrient Moisture Body Wash



You can win all three Dove Body Washes, plus this beautiful #OneShowerChallenge inspired necklace for accessorizing your super soft skin.  One lucky Beauty Info Zone will be chosen – why not enter so it can be you?

This fabulous giveaway runs through October 20th at 11:59 p.m. (If comments aren’t open please comment on our Facebook page or email me at — Lisa
