January giveaway: Win a beauty hamper worth £60*

Insight January January Giveaway

There’s no denying it, January in the UK is somewhat bleak. Christmas is over. It’s cold outside. Cash is tight. Then there are those blasted New Year resolutions piling even more pressure on us. Wouldn’t it be easier to just hibernate until April?

Um, no. Why not pledge to make January the month you start showing yourself a little self-love? We all lead hectic lives and inevitably we neglect to make time for ourselves – regular readers will know that I’m the worst for this and have written about how to tackle it here.

Yet just 20 minutes of me-time – be it a candlelit bath, a good book or a meditation session – could help your brain switch off, aiding relaxation and inducing a good night’s sleep. To engage you in the spirit we’ve teamed up with Italian ethical hair and skincare brand Insight, which recently debuted in the UK, to give away a fabulous beauty hamper worth almost £60!

Inside you’ll find a nourishing body cleanser and body cream from its SKIN collection, an organic and ICEA ECO BIO certified range designed for sensitive skin. Each product contains the active ingredient organic rooibos extract, said to fight irritations and leave your limbs feeling velvety soft.

Insight haircare January giveaway

You’ll be able to treat your locks with bumper bottles of shampoo and conditioner, as well as a revitalising hair mask. Each one is paraben, petrolatum, colourant and allergen-free and uses ozonated water, a purification process to remove any metallic extracts and bacteria.

The lightweight, recyclable and sustainable packaging is beautifully designed and will look gorgeous on your bathroom shelf too.

To enter, simply comment on the post below and over on our Facebook page explaining what the month of January means to you and why? The name of one lucky winner will be drawn out of a hat on Sunday January 14 at 9pm. The competition is open to UK residents only. Terms and conditions apply.

Good Luck!


The prize, worth £58.95*,  includes:

  • Insight Skin Body Cleanser 500ml (worth £10.99)
  • Nourishing Body Cream 250ml  (worth £13.99)
  • Daily Use Energizing Shampoo 500ml (£9.99)
  • Daily Use Energizing Conditioner 500ml (£11.99)
  • Daily Use Energizing Mask 500ml (£11.99)

Please don’t worry if your comments do not instantly appear underneath the blog post. They have to be approved and may be held in a queue. All the products mentioned above can be found at Insight which has donated the hamper in exchange for this post.

    January to me is about new beginnings, fresh start and the chance to make plans with family and friends for fun things to do and if lucky, to check them off. I like to give my family experiences and memories rather than material gifts. After all life is short and for living.
