Next of Skin (Sponsored)

Win every new item in Essence of Beauty's bath and body line

Essence of Beauty

Think about it.

You wouldn't dare wear the same outfit every day, or even the same makeup (daily routine aside, you'll still mix in a colored liner or bold lip every now and then). So why, oh why, do you insist on sticking with one "signature" fragrance?

That makes absolutely no scents.

Here's what does: exploring Essence of Beauty's luxe new bath and body products in four new master-crafted fragrances and moisture-rich shea butter collection. Pamper and protect skin with nourishing passion flower seed oil, antioxidant-filled rice bran oil and vitamins C and E while treating your nose (and mood!) to vibrant, evocative blends of florals, fruits and musks.

One lucky Lei Chic reader will win every single new Essence of Beauty product plus a $25 CVS/pharmacy gift card. Below, a breakdown of the entire 20-piece prize package with fragrance notes:
