Marzena Hair Removal Giveaway – three to win!

The weather is warming up here and with that comes the unveiling of legs are looking a bit fuzzy. I’ve stopped wearing tights to work and it was a bit of a shock to see what my legs looked like. Thankfully my friends at Marzena are here to help! I have three hair removal packs to give away, which include their new formulations for sensitive skin. The packs contain Marzena large wax strips and sensitive hair removal lotions, as well as a bag from Citta.

Maybelline NY foundation giveaway

I find foundation, and base products in general, to be difficult to purchase. Walking up to a stand where there are what seems like endless different types of foundation and trying to choose one is a bit overwhelming. To help people like me out with this challenge, Maybelline has created a helpful chart so you can find the perfect foundation or BB cream for you. In addition to that, one lucky Lena Talks Beauty reader will be winning their perfect BB cream or foundation from Maybellline!

6 Month Giveaway

Today is 6 months since my first blog post, and I feel like I’ve come SUCH a long way since then. I’ve learned so much about running a blog, taking photos – going from using my phone to using a DSLR, editing photos, and working with some great brands. Without all my amazing readers, this would all be nothing. I love reading comments, and seeing likes and favourites, and hearing from all of you about what you think of my posts. I’ve also made some awesome friends through blogging which I have been so thrilled about. To thank you all for your support, I have a giveaway for you – open internationally. Some of the products have been kindly provided to me by PR companies, others I’ve purchased myself.
