Ombra is an under-the-radar brand I remember periodically because the Citrus Sage body wash made my shower a happy place a few years back. Honestly, I'd probably think of it more often if the packaging were decor-friendly. Oops?
Of German origin, Ombra's been available in Canadian drugstores since 1983. Its biodegradeable formulas, made with essential oils and natural extracts, are all about aromatherapy. Mood enhancing scents include calming lavender, peppy juniper, and invigorating citrus and eucalyptus -- just the kind of thing to get you through winter's grim, which, thankfully, hasn't yet set upon us. Regular pricing ranges from about $5 for the body washes and $9 for the herbal baths.
This here basket is worth about $125 CAN. It's another giveaway that's making the blogosphere rounds, but I figure you won't mind -- who doesn't love a chance to win something? And I have a soft spot for anything that can make mornings a little easier when Clive-O and Daniel-C are someplace that's else.
You must be a BeautyGeeks subscriber who lives in Canada to qualify for the draw (click here to subscribe if you haven't already). To enter, send an email with OMBRA in the subject line, and your name, age, address and telephone number in the body, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Contest closes at the end of the day on Saturday December 5th.
Wonder which will give your mood the bigger lift? Zippy Citrus Sage, uplifting Ginger Lime, energetic Juniper, or that everything you use from the basket is something you won?
