For Effortless Beauty - Mirra (Review and Giveaway)

The blow of my thirtieth birthday two weeks ago was lessened considerably by the arrival of a generous sampling of Mirra products. This is a new, affordable line of beauty products by the Kroger company that uses natural ingredients. The timing was perfect, as I had just run out of shampoo when this came in the mail, thanks to Global Influence Network.
I'm impressed with the products so far. The shampoo and conditioner both have a gentle scent and make my hair feel smooth and silky. I had almost run out of body wash too, so it's definitely a good thing that I got a sample of that to try out. Then there's the eye cream and the wrinkle cream - luxorious, and most needed in my now "old age." The creams contain a unique formula and fancy sounding ingredients like sunflower seed, jojoba oils and soybean protein. The most important thing for me though is that they work, and so far they seem to be doing just that. Check them out for yourself, and make sure to use this five dollar coupon while you're at it.

WANT TO WIN? One winner will receive a sampling of Mirra products. To enter, leave a comment on this post prior to Friday, March 19th at Midnight and tell me your best beauty tip! Please include your email address with your comment. Winner must provide a US mailing address.

I received product samples for review purposes.
