Announcing the winner of the Burt's Bees Essential Body Kit drawing

Congratulations to the winner of our Burt's Bees Essential Body Kit frugal beauty tips contest!

As you know, I asked readers to send in their frugal and/or homemade beauty ideas. Dozens of you wrote in, and in a random drawing, the following comment was selected as the winner:

The best make-up remover I've found is baby oil. Yup, simple cheap baby oil. You dab a little bit on a cotton ball, rub that across your eyes, and even the most stubborn water-proof mascara comes right off. It even moisturizes!

That's right, Rebecca won the drawing! An email confirmation has been sent out to Rebecca, who will receive one free Burt's Bees Essential Body Kit compliments of Wise Bread.

In addition, I was so taken with Ben's remedy for cracked heels that I've decided to send him an extra kit, just for offering such an innovative solution.

Grind up some fennel, sarsaparilla, and aloe vera, and add them to some olive oil. Allow this to macerate for a week or so. Add the oil to an equal amount of beeswax, and melt them together in a 300 degree oven. Apply this mixture to dry or cracked heels to soothe, soften, and heal them.

Thanks to everyone who participated!
