Surviving #GF12 with Kiehl’s + win two survival packages!
For those of you who don’t know where I live yet: I live in Ghent, one of the nicest cities in Belgium. Or should I say the nicest? After all, I moved here for a reason. Each year in Ghent we have a city festival called ‘de Gentse Feesten’, which could be translated to ‘the Ghent Festivities’. Basically it’s a ten day long super party that goes on day and night in all areas of the city. There are loads of bars putting up tents outside (and serving special drinks!), during the day there are different kinds of activities for the kids & there’s a huge amount of music events as well. I’m not too much of a fan of the festival during the day (LOADS of people from all over the world come and visit, it’s super busy!), but I always head out to some of the best bars in town at night. I love how vibrant this festival is, and especially how I always catch up with people I haven’t seen in quite a while.
Anyway, enough about the festival itself. What does #GF12 have in common with Kiehl’s? Kiehl’s has a (tiny and beautiful!) store in Ghent, and this local shop got all creative & created two special beauty packages to get through the festival:
Day Kit (€41):
Ultra Facial Cleanser 150ml
Ultra Facial Cream 50ml
Ultra Facial Toner (luxury sample)
Night Kit (€48.5):
Utra Facial Cleanser 75ml
Midnight Recovery Concentrate 30ml
Midnight Recovery Eye (luxury sample)
They’re great value as you get a free luxury sample & a pretty pouch with each kit. Obviously you always buy Kiehl’s anyway, so it’s time to enjoy this offer I’d say ! And believe me, if you want to get through these ten days without looking like you’ve been run over ten times, you need some extra miracles working on your skin..
And that’s not all! To promote this, Kiehl’s has come up with some great slogans in the local language (Flemish with loads of Gantoise words), which are just too funny. My favorite one is the Midnight Recovery Concentrate one as I’ve seen the sun rise at ‘de Vlasmort’ loads of times already. Sorry if you can’t enjoy this because you don’t speak Flemish!
And still, that is not all! Kiehl’s and I have teamed up to provide you with a survival package for de Gentse Feesten. Two lucky winners will be chosen on Wednesday the 17th (so that’s in five days) & will receive their kit before the festival ends! So what do you have to do to be able to win this? It’s really easy!
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what your favorite dialect word is (could be your local dialect, or if you dare look up some local Ghent words!)
Tell me whether you’d like to win a day or night kit and why.
True troopers can even come up with their own slogan, but that last part is not mandatory.
If you’ve got Twitter, be a darling & tweet a link to this give-away!
And if you need some more inspiration, you can find some more very funny slogans behind the break. Good luck!
