But don’t be surprised if many more are added over the coming days and weeks!

It seems like everybody is giving away something this time of the year!  I thought I’d do a little round-up of some of the fab contests I’ve come across.

Total Beauty is having their celebration for Earth Day by holding a huge, site-wide contest that gives away daily prizes of all kinds (from conflict-free diamonds to eco-friendly beauty products), as well as a grand prize of a Saturn Vue filled to the brim of eco-beauty products. How do you enter? Review products and get entered! Check out Totally Green for more details.

Clinique has a contest going on in celebration of Mother’s Day! Share your Mom-and-me story and photo– and you both could win! When you’re done, you can even put your picture on a Clinique Happy custom bottle! The happiest Mom-and-me moment wins these great prizes: Two (2) clinique.com eGift Cards; Two (2) iPod Touch 8GB; Two (2) custom bottles with the winning photo. The winning photo will be featured on Mother’s Day — May 11. They are also running a bridal contest in conjunction with Brides.com, where you can win a nice grand prize featuring a huge diamond, as well as runner up prizes where you can get your own Clinique Makeup Expert on your special day.

Jergens Skincare is showing their support for The Skin Care Foundation with a campaign called “Glow in the Dark,” which is all about tanning via bottles (aka self tanners) rather than baking in the sun. The first 500 people who TAKE THE PLEDGE! to tan safely will receive a sample of Jergens Natural Glow Express Moisturizer and a “I Glow in the Dark” t-shirt. Every pledge made results in $1 donation to The Skin Care foundation up to $20,000.

Misikko is an online retailer that sells several high-end brands of hair styling tools and products (and at great prices, they often have things on sale or less than retail). Three random winners will be selected to win either a $50 or $100 gift certificate to Misikko just for writing a review. Get details here. Contest ends April 27th, midnight EST.
