A full size unscented soap, a vanilla lip balm with SPF 15, 2 oz bottles of shampoo and conditioner, a brightening facial cleanser, a tinted lip shimmer, a packet of natural and unscented laundry soap, a sample of facial scrub, and a couple of bug repellent wipes.

Unlike other giveaways I've had in the past I'll be giving away a small sample bag away to a second place winner! This bag features an Acure Organics Dark Chocolate + Mint Lip Balm and several foil packet samples.
