Defiant Defiant Beauty Gift Set (Body) review and giveaway

This gorgeous giveaway has now closed and the winner is Hannah - who has supplied her details and we've emailed her to let her know she's won! A BIG thank you to everyone who took part in the fun, and look out for more giveaways and competitions, coming soon!

We've teamed up with the fabulous and truly inspirational Beauty Despite Cancer to bring you a gorgeous giveaway to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month: to win a Defiant Beauty Gift Set (Body), worth £55!

And if you've just discovered Suburban Turban or Beauty Despite Cancer through this giveaway, a very warm welcome!

Founded by Jennifer Young, Beauty Despite Cancer is a fabulous online magazine devoted to all things beauty, skincare and pampering during chemotherapy. Also available at the website, Jennifer's tailor-made Defiant Beauty range of beautifully packaged, wonderfully pampering goodies is especially designed and formulated to address your skin's special needs at this time.

'"'Women don’t stop being women when they are diagnosed with cancer" - I often find myself saying this as a way of explaining why I started Beauty Without Cancer and why I created Defiant Beauty, skincare and beauty collections for cancer patients,' explains Jennifer at the site. 'You didn’t stop being a woman when you were diagnosed with cancer but, in many respects, you have stopped being treated like one.

No longer are you able to relax and enjoy products from Selfridges Beauty Hall (or the cosmetics aisle at Morrisions). Someone has told you to avoid a few of the ingredients in cosmetics but you’re not entirely sure what they are and which products they are in. Gone are the luxurious and delicately fragranced, beautifully wrapped serums, lotions and potions only to be replaced by thick white gloopy cream from a plastic pump topped dispenser – that’s your new skincare regime? You didn’t sign up for this. 'Worse, your skin isn’t your skin anymore, it is itchy and sore and it reacts angrily when you put your favourite moisturiser on it. Losing you hair and feeling poorly you were prepared for, but this? Nobody mentioned your nails either did they?'.

Jennifer worked with a group of patients and survivors from her local hospital and NHS team to develop the Defiant Beauty Skincare Collections range, from which our gorgeous giveaway prize has been handpicked by Nicky, Suburban Turban founder (and it was a hard choice! Everything in the range is wonderful!). As an aside, 10% of the online profit from this range is donated by Beauty Without Cancer to the Fresh Hair and Well Being Salon at University Hospital North Staffs (UHNS). This AMAZING gift set and giveaway prize contains:

  • Cooling Body Spritz (100g)
  • Itchy skin oil (100g)
  • Smooth Skin oil (100g)
  • Nail Oil (12g)
