Valentine's Day with Pure Romance - Review & Giveaway

So, here it is.

Another Valentine's Day is almost upon us.

What are your plans for this festive occasion?

Maybe you're planning a fun night out - Perhaps dinner and a movie?

Maybe you're planning a family night - Perhaps pizza and some board games?

Maybe you're even planning a romantic night in. Maybe you have parents nearby that have offered to take the kids for the night. Maybe you don't have kids yet. Maybe your kids are grown and off at college. If the romantic night in is what you're hoping for, then I have a giveaway for you.

Have you heard of Pure Romance?

If not, then here's a little background on the company -
Patty Brisben, the founder of Pure Romance, started the company in 1993 to empower, educate, and entertain women. Since then, the company has grown to over 70,000 product consultants who live the company’s mission each and every day.

Empowerment: This jobless recovery is taking its toll on families, however very often our Pure Romance consultants report that they are meeting or exceeding their income expectations. Sales have been recession-resistant. Pure Romance experienced a 37% increase in sales in 2010. Pure Romance also empowers women because they are able to take control of their sex lives, which can have an impact on quality of life.

Education: Pure Romance products resonate with women unlike any other in the category due to our commitment to educating women about their bodies and our products. The Pure Romance partnership with the Kinsey Institute, coupled with our curriculum developed by our Director of Sexual Health Education, means our 70,000 consultants are trained to provide the most helpful information and advice. Pure Romance doesn’t sell in stores because in-home parties offer women fun, private, peer-to-peer learning opportunities about romance, intimacy and sex.

Entertainment: Whether it’s the fun and camaraderie of the Pure Romance parties themselves, the use of Pure Romance products by a woman, or a couple’s inventive Pure Romance fun, entertainment is at the core of the company’s mission.

Is it sounding a bit more familiar now?  ;o)

I have actually never been to a PureRomance party. In fact, I had never even used any of their products. However, they did send me a box of goodies to facilitate this review. While I haven't used most of the products, I did try out one. It is a rash preventing shaving cream that can also double as a hair conditioner.  I have to admit, it smells wonderful (I used grapefruit.) and did an amazing job of making my skin soft and smooth.   If you're looking for this product on the website, it is called "Coochy". (Seriously, who names this stuff?  I liked it so much that I'd probably buy it, but I don't know if I want the kids - that can sound out anything - to see this tube sitting in my shower.  I'm almost positive that this would be a word that they'd find a way to repeat in school.)

Now, back to the giveaway.  Pure Romance is offering one of my readers a Mini Nights of Passion Variety Pack ($30 value) so that you can try out five of their most popular products - Aura, Ex-T-Cee, Excape, Sensations & Sweet Seduction.  This mini size sampler would be perfect to take with you for a romantic weekend away.  Because the winners need to be reported back by the 19th, this giveaway is going to be quick and easy.  Here's what you have to do to enter:

Mandatory Entry: Tell me what your general Valentine's Day plans are/were.   Did you do dinner and a movie?  A performance at the local theater? Bowling?  A romantic night in?
