YVES ROCHER'S SHAMPOO GIVEAWAY
In celebration of International Women's Day, which falls on next Tuesday, French beauty brand Yves Rocher is giving away 2,000 full-sized (200ml) tubes of its non- foaming cleansing cream Low Shampoo (worth $15) to Straits Times readers.
The cream does not contain sulfate, a chemical component in regular shampoo which creates the foaming effect.
The brand claims that the chemical can damage the natural protective film of the hair and make it dry.
Low Shampoo also does not contain any colorants, silicone or parabens. Instead, it uses cleansing agents and hair conditioner to clean, detangle and soften hair.
To redeem a free tube , SMS your name and e-mail address to 9093-5680 before next Tuesday. An auto-notification SMS will be sent to you.
Show this SMS at any of the four Yves Rocher outlets before next Tuesday to redeem the shampoo, while stocks last.
The information sent to Yves Rocher will be used by the label for future marketing purposes.
Yves Rocher is located at Ngee Ann City, Westgate, BHG Bugis Junction and Isetan Tampines.
