Well, I may be being optimistic here, but it does feel as if spring has finally peeked its head out from all that snow, doesn’t it? To celebrate, I have a big giveaway on my blog this week… perfect for spring cleaning! I normally wait until around my birthday in April to do my first blog competition of the year, but I’m too impatient this year, so here we go… more on that below in a minute.
First though, a quick look at a Today’s Special Value offer coming up on Wednesday the 4th of April, and which will definitely turn our thoughts to sunshine. It’s a five-piece high protection kit from Ultrasun, and I was lucky enough to get an advance set which I took to New Zealand with me on my fabulous February holiday.
It kept my very fair Irish skin fully protected in all that fierce sunshine, and I can’t recommend Ultrasun highly enough – I will never use anything else as sun protection. I love the once-a-day application, and the fact that there are formulations to suit everyone, from lotions to gels to sprays. This time there’s a choice of Family (SPF 50) or Glimmer (SPF 30) – each has a 250ml and 150ml lotion or gel, an After Sun Gel, a Face sun cream and a Lip Protector. I got the Family set and took a few pictures of a couple of the products as we travelled – here they are in a New Zealand vineyard, on a sunny terrace and with me, on a bike (we did a fabulous wine-tasting tour by bicycle!). Sorry, the Ultrasun bag isn’t part of the offer – that’s mine! The set will be at an incredible price though so don’t miss out.
Newsflash! I now have an early bird link for this offer, so get ahead of the game and get it now!”
Now – competition time! I’m giving away a superb carpet washer from Vax, plus accessories, worth a penny under £250. The RapidPower Advance will be our Today’s Special Value offer on the 5th of April, so this is your chance to win one before that. I got a sample to try at home and was amazed by how fabulously clean it got the pale rug in my conservatory, which gets walked on a lot every day so can be hard to keep clean. This carpet washer is said to out-clean the leading rental, and I’m convinced… the rug was also dry within an hour, which is a huge bonus.
Vax is a British company (started by entrepreneur Alan Brazier at his home in Worcestershire), and this carpet cleaner is as quick and easy to use as a vacuum cleaner; there’s a trigger under the handle to control the washing solution and you turn it on and off with a foot pedal – have a look at my little video! I keep looking at my lovely rug now and saying: “Wow. It’s good, isn’t it?”
