Tantalizing Tuesday: Free Giveaways

Posted By bectemp on Dec 9, 2008 at 10:49AM


picture of red package of Y.E.S. eye masks, with eye masks sitting in front of the package, all on a white backgroundGWBBB is giving away Y.E.S. Rejuvenating Eye Patches valued at $20.00 and a dining gift certificate to Manhattan’s ultra luxurious celeb hot spot Bruno Jamais Restaurant.  Leave a comment on GWBBB as to which giveaway you would like to receive.


All Natural Formulation! The eye patches are simple and effective, easy.  Amazing boost to the eye area that will leave your skin feeling silky smooth! Apply to the skin under your eye and plump up your skin while the combination of ingredients: * Hydrates the skin over time due to a moisture retaining effect. * Calms skin irritation. * Leaves the skin perceptibly softer. * Sooth dermatological irritations and increase the elasticity and softness of the skin. * Also protects from environmental exposure to toxic pollutants. Young Essential Skincare Eye Patches contain biologically active ingredients that alleviate puffiness, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles in record time. They are specifically designed to treat the under eye area, actually dissolving along with your wrinkles right before your eyes. The highly effective ingredients are derived from a bio-marine origin (Chitosan, a shellfish derivative) which is prized for its moisture retaining effects along with collagen and Vitamin C.

$50.00 gift certificate to Manhattan’s ultra posh Bruno Jamais Restaurant Club

Bruno Jamais Restaurant Club brings the French Riviera to the upper east side. Where else can one dine in style until 3am with delectable cuisine such as chocolate soufflé and Foie Gras? The service and décor are equally impressive. The restaurant received the "Best Interior Design" award by Hospitality Design Magazine. There is also live entertainment on Monday nights with the best of jazz and soul. On a cold winter's night, allow debonair owner Bruno Jamais to make you feel at home and beat the doldrums of winter. With Chef Hok Chin at the kitchen's helm the cuisine is sure to delight even the most discerning palates. Bruno Jamais and Chef Hok Chin have created a unique menu that has an Asian influence without losing its French integrity. Bruno Jamais is also the perfect place to book your private party and can accommodate up to 200 diners for a buffet dinner or 70 people for a sit down dinner. For those upper east siders who are tired of trekking downtown for an evening of fun, this exclusive venue has it all. If you are looking to see stars, celebrity patrons have included: Billy Baldwin, Joan Rivers, Cindy Adams, Chazz Palminteri and even former President Bill Clinton. Reservations are suggested and chic attire is requested. 24 EAST 81 STREET NY NY
