Summer Vacation Giveaway! *Closed*

Why no new posts will appear until Mid-September – and a bit of entertainment & excitement for you meanwhile 😉

Christmas-in-September-Giveaway-BEAUTYCALYPSESummer vacation! Weeks of offline fun! Whaaat? – Yes, you read right: no new posts will appear here until Thursday, September 17, Monday, September 21 😉 2015 – BEAUTYCALYPSE goes on a summer break, in the sake of inspiration, productivity and a healthy work-life balance. Yay! The decision to have a break, from blogging too (Gasp! No, no FOMO), felt like Christmas in summer to me, …aaaaaand here’s where I had the glorious giveaway idea.

I love to entertain (and to spoil) you guys, so while I’m gone, have fun with my International Giveaway – Christmas in September! All items were hand-picked and purchased by me for you, my readers. 

The reasons behind purchasing the items for BEAUTYCALYPSE giveaways are quite simple; and no, “I won the lottery” isn’t one of them 😉 – here we go:
1. I want to stay independent. Period.
2. I don’t do a lot of shopping anymore; with all my ethical and ecological criteria and aesthetic requirements, it’s not too easy to find a perfect piece of garment, of jewellery; not even a mascara. However, when I do find a brand I love, it becomes my source of inspiration and the most beautiful opportunity to be able to pick a present for a friend without hesitation or headache. I love to share those finds with my real-life friends – and with you.
3. Free stuff is just that: free stuff. No offense here, but I want BEAUTYCALYPSE giveaways to stay special, to appreciate you, the readers, to appreciate the beauty of a gift, and, ultimately, to appreciate the gift itself, the product – created by someone who wanted to make the world a little better. It’s not stuff. It’s a treasure.

    I have a big research project. I’d like to have a list of cosmetic products that are (mainly) natural, organic and fair trade, without palm oil, preferably vegan and free of nasty ingredients such as alcohol or harsh flavours.
    Should be a lot of work and result in a very short list…
    Have a nice summer break!

  2. I would definitely love to learn more about oil like Peta. Somehow they do not seem to work with my super dry skin and make the skin either even more dry or I tend to break outs. Further I am so curious to find more eco fashion, more store inspirations in the city,…

    Hi, I would be interested to learn more on how to select oils according to the content of oleic and linoleic and tip for “natural” compact makeup compact (i heard something about NU Evolution)

    As someone very new to green beauty, one frustrating thing is that green makeup products just do not work as well as conventional products. I am interested in searching up products or methods so green makeup products deliver the same results as conventional products.

        The most disappointing so far has been eyeliner! I got the Zuzu eyeliner but the staying power is terrible. The eyeshadow colors are also not as vibrant.
