15th Blogiversary giveaway: Your New Favorite Face SPF For Urban Environments

Jamie holding Shiseido SPF For Urban Environments

It’s hard to believe it, but today marks my blog’s 15th anniversary (“blogiversary,” if you will).  As I’m sitting here typing up this post and prepping the giveaway with Shiseido’s SPF For Urban Environments (don’t worry- getting to that below, lol), I’m honestly just SO appreciative of everything that this blog has given me over the past 15 years. From the ability to share my honest thoughts, opinions and favorite products with strangers to the job opportunities both in the writing and marketing worlds. I’ve also made REAL friends that I never would’ve met or bonded with if not for this silly little website I started on a late night whim. This blog will forever be a part of my foray into adulthood and it also served as a creative outlet for me during some really hard times in my life.

(Yes, the tears are streaming now).

15th Blogiversary giveaway: Your New Favorite Face SPF For Urban Environments

Reflecting on my life since I started this blog on April 6, 2009…well, let’s just say I never would’ve predicted that I’d end up where I am now and, quite honestly, I’m really, really happy that I still get to do what I love AND the way my life has turned out…and I owe a big part of that to not only this blog, but also to YOU GUYS.

I’ll never be the influencer with half a million followers on IG and I’m ok with that.

I have all of you. Some of whom have been reading this blog since 2009 (!), and that truly just warms my heart with joy.  To those readers – I’m honored that we got to “grow up” together.  Thank you for all your support over the last 15 years.

To new/newish readers – thank you for trusting me when there are soooo many other voices that you could trust instead.

P.S. don’t forget to check back every day this week (Monday – Saturday) for a new giveaway every day.

I’m really just a ball fall of love right now and I’m excited to share today’s giveaway with one my ALL-TIME FAVORITE brands, Shiseido!

Giveaway of Shiseido Urban Environment Face SPF

Giving Away 15 of these Babies!

You all already know that I’m a long-time Shiseido SPF fan and, today, I’m giving away 15 of my new favorite: Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum Face SPF 42!

If there’s one thing you will always see me preaching about on here, it’s SPF. You need to protect your money maker, aka your face.  This travel-friendly SPF is ultra-light, oil-free and absorbs excess sebum (aka oil) for a fresh, matte finish.

It’s also water and sweat-resistant (a must if you’re layering makeup over this- and it’s a great primer, btw). It also boasts an ingredient I love called scutellaria baicalensis extract. The extract has been used for centuries in Asian medicine, and helps provide a more youthful appearance. Developed in the bustling urban metropolis that is modern Tokyo, antioxidant rose apple leaf extract and thiotaurine were added to defend against skin-damaging free radicals and pollution. So, it’s really perfect for anyone who lives in a major city (hello LA, where we have pretty dirty air most days).

And now the fun part…I’ve partnered with Shiseido to give away 15 of these SPF for urban environments babies to you guys!
