2010 has been quite a year. Through the ups and downs, you’ve stuck by me and I am thankful for every one of you! To celebrate 4 years of Afrobella, my site being back up and running, happiness and health – I’m giving you 12 Days of Giveaways!

On the 12th day of giveaways, Afrobella gave to me…12 Suave Seasonal Body Washes!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and the scents of the season are everywhere! Cinnamon and freshly baked pie, peppermint bark and warm Christmas cookies. You can smell it wafting out of your kitchen, and now – thanks to Suave’s new seasonal body washes that are exclusively for sale at Walmart – you can give your shower experience a little holiday fragrance too.

I’m a fan of Suave products in general, but I really dig the body washes – they’re super affordable, they come in an incredible variety of scents, and they’re rich and emollient. I know I’m not alone in my love of Suave products – I always see the coconut conditioner mentioned on natural hair forums and blogs, and when I mentioned my love for the Almond and Shea Butter conditioner on my Facebook page, Suave lovers came out of the woodwork!

To celebrate the season, Suave has released four special holiday scents. Candy Apple Luscious Body Wash, Holiday Pear Refreshing Body Wash, Peppermint Bliss Shimmer Body Wash, and Toasted Vanilla and Sugar Indulgent Body Wash retail for $1.99, and can only be found on shelves at Walmart. But I’ll save 12 of you the trip! For the first of the 12 Days of Giveaways, I’ll keep it simple. Here’s how you enter!

Leave a comment below telling me which Suave holiday fragrance best describes your kind of Christmas! I’ll leave these open until next Monday, and then randomly choose 12 lucky winners. Suave will then send you one of their seasonal body washes.
Stay tuned for even MORE giveaways right here on Afrobella.com!

** edited December 6, 12:31 pm – comments and contest are now closed. Winners will be announced ASAP. Good luck!!

My fave is the Peppermint Bliss body wash, because it reminds me of my favorite holiday season treat...candy canes!

I would love the Candy Apple or Vanilla and Sugar. Those scents make me feel like the holiday season is here. Fresh apple pies and homemade cakes are the scents I immediately think of.

I love peppermint so Peppermint Bliss is my choice. I've weaned myself off peppermint candy canes but I still voraciously slurp peppermint-flavored drinks.

Toasted Vanilla and Sugar! I think it sounds warm, toasty, and sweet just like curling up in front of the fire place on a cold winter night!
Kelly says:
December 2, 2010, 8:33 am
Peppermint Bliss all the way! My holidays have always been associated with it, from candy canes on the tree to the mints in the candy dish, and the peppermint bark on Christmas eve!

I'm a Peppermint Bliss Christmas Girl. I love all things minty. Since I was little I would eat the small candy canes that comes on the plastic strip bag-by-bag. Never any candy canes left on our tree. I love the idea of a Peppermint Wash, because it will be hydrating and fresh, just the pop you need to get started on a cold winter day!

I'm feeling the Toasted Vanilla and Sugar Indulgent Body Wash. How can you say Holiday Break without the word indulgent? I know I plan on clowning on my mama's cooking :) Plus those super cute holiday sugar cookies w/Santa in the middle scream "Eat me....your diet can resume Jan 1st!

Toasted Vanilla and Sugar of course!!! I use vanilla in absolutely every dessert recipe this season, and I LOVE the yummy smell. Also, it goes well with the scent of my everyday perfume, Angel (which has vanilla notes).

Peppermint Bliss! Why? Well, it reminds me of the Brach's peppermint red, white, and green nougat candy that you can only find during the holiday season. I love those things and I love mint ANYTHING.

I used to use the vanilla and shea butter in college to complement the cocoa butter I always had to use for dry skin. I went to school Virginia Tech where it is winter 75 percent of the time even in September! I would love to try to the other fragrances as well!

Margaret says:

Peppermint Bliss reminds me of being a little girl and trying to sneak candy canes off the back of the tree so no one would notice. It also gives me a nice wake up which is always nice, any time of year.
NaturalReview says:

Toasted Vanilla and Sugar because it reminds me of cookies and the warmth of Christmas.
TheCubicleChick says:
December 2, 2010, 11:27 am
Suave's Toasted Vanilla best describes me because I have been sweet and warm to everyone all year this year. To reward myself, a shower with this scent would be a wonderful gift.
Jackie Motton says:
December 2, 2010, 11:41 am
Mine would have to be Peppermint Bliss. Maybe because of the nostalgic childhood memories of hanging candy canes on the Christmas tree. Or it could be my yearly anticipation for a certain Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha drink to finally bless me with its holiday arrival...delicious. Either way, Christmas would not be the same without some peppermint mixed in each year!
anjol says:
December 2, 2010, 12:52 pm
Toasted Vanilla and Sugar would be my favorite because it smells like all the holiday goodies that I love to bake and eat during the Christmas season.
Ieisha says:
December 2, 2010, 3:11 pm
The scent that would describe this upcoming Christmas is Peppermint Bliss. I will spend this Christmas with no more semesters of law school left! Yep, I will be all done! Nothing more to do except take the bar exam but after this accomplishment, this Christmas will be complete & total bliss!
Pat says:

Holiday Pear Refreshing -- I'm *really* into pears right now, and particularly Trader Joes's Pear Cinnamon Cider. If you have yet to try it, PLEASE get thee to the nearest TJ's. It's light and refreshing, but the warm cinnamon flavor reminds you of the season.
Carmesha says:

Toasted Vanilla and Sugar, sounds warm & inviting like my Vanilla candles & holiday sugar cookies!
Joy says:
December 2, 2010, 5:25 pm
Toasted Vanilla and Sugar smells so yummy, vanilla and reminds me so much of sugar cookies (which is a holiday favorite). I doesn't hurt that vanilla scents tend to linger on my skin:)
Tiffany says:
December 2, 2010, 7:19 pm
I LOVE anything and everything that has to do with mint so I can't wait to try to Peppermint Bliss!! Nothing better than a cup of peppermint tea in the wintertime. It's funny because mint always reminds me of my grandmother mint tea bush in Jamaica- a completely different weather than this cold Northeast weather!
latasha says:
December 2, 2010, 8:31 pm
I would say Holiday Pears because it reminds me of a warm pear crisp dessert on a nice cold winter evening over some ice cream. HMMM Gotta have it.

Apple isn't really getting any play around these parts!!! I love Candy Apples, but I will have to go with what I know... Toasted Vanilla & sugar.. it's a snuggle up sent and I'm a snuggle up kinda woman!

Peppermint! My grandma always carried mints that tasted like candy canes...she didn't care how loud the wrapper was in church lol!!
Miss K says:
December 3, 2010, 9:50 am
Toasted Vanilla Sugar is by far my favorite! It reminds me of the homemade pies I make for Christmas and one of my best friends back in Baltimore. She and I wear the same exclusive Vanilla Sugar scent from Bath and Body Works every winter season!
Katrina says:

Toasted Vanilla & Sugar because it's sweet, warming and makes me think of cuddling up with a good book or a movie marathon with family & friends during the holidays while off from work. Bailey S7Bailey@gmail.com @SBailey7 - Twitter

Candy Apple describes my Christmas holiday because nothing says winter better than the fresh crisp aroma of candy apples! It reminds me of Bath and Body Works Candy apple fragrance.
Melany says:

I LOVE Suave and it is hard to decide on one. I love the holiday season and the scents they bring like no other. However Toasted Vanilla and Sugar Indulgent would be my first choice. Egg Nog is my all time favorite holiday drink (other than a Gingerbread Martini)it's creamy, full bodied, and the perfect compliment to any meal or dessert. These same qualities are represented in their body washes creamy and luxurious. So (singing in my Santa Baby Voice)Santa Baby bring Toasted Vanilla and Sugar for me baby...I've been a very good girl.. all year...so put a bottle under my tree (wink)
Lauren says:

my favorite would be the toasted vanilla and sugar -- i'm sure that it will remind me of my grandmother's signature shortbread cookies (which she makes every year at christmas)

Holiday Pear Refreshing bodywash is the scent for me. The smell of fruit reminds me of baking pies, simmering cider and tart cranberry sauce. My mouth is watering right now!
