Am I the only one feeling that everything is getting more expensive? I mean, I go to the supermarket to grab just a few things and rarely leave without it costing at least $50-60. And worse is it if you’re trying to eat healthy. Fruit and vegetables are so expensive these days, and it frustrates me no end that it is often cheaper to buy a Snickers or Mars bar than a piece of fruit. Very sad, isn't it.

And add to that Christmas is actually just four and a bit months away. Where did the year go?! And have you started saving yet, and started thinking about what it is going to cost you this year?

Pantene wants to be able to help women shine - both on the inside and out- and achieve what they set out to do in 2014/15, so to help you save a little money you can win 6 months’ worth of Pantene haircare, which is sure to give you a little more room in your budget. And what’s even better is that there I have got three packs to give away. And each pack is worth $200. How cool is that. You can save this money for Xmas pressies, or simply put it away for a rainy day. Or maybe there's something special you've had your eyes on and have been saving for?
Each Pantene haircare pack includes a whopping 23 products;
  • 1 x Pantene Hydrating Curls Shampoo and Conditioner set
  • 1 x Pantene Beautiful Lengths Shampoo and Conditioner set
  • 1 x Pantene Colour Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner set
  • 1 x Pantene Ice Shine Shampoo and Conditioner set
  • 1 x Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner set
  • 1 x Pantene Aqua Light Shampoo and Conditioner set
  • 1 x Pantene Ice Shine Rinse-Off Treatment
  • 1 x Pantene Intensive Damage Repair Oil
  • 1 x Pantene Aqua Light Rinse-Off Treatment
  • 1 x Pantene 6 Week Colour Protect Treatment Program
  • 1 x Pantene Intense Smoothening Leave-On Creme
  • 1 x Pantene Styling Treatment Foam Soft Curls
  • 1 x Pantene Styling Treatment Mist Soft Curls
  • 1 x Pantene Styling Treatment Creamy Fiber Soft Curls
  • 1 x Pantene Styling Treatment Foam Smooth Straight
  • 1 x Pantene Styling Treatment Mist Smooth Straight
  • 1 x Pantene Styling Treatment Creamy Jelly Smooth Straight


Pretty awesome, isn’t it!

  22. If I had extra money leftover because I did not have to buy my hair care for 6 months, then I'd put that extra cash into healthy foods - I'm on disability and a single Mum and buying fresh, healthy food is so expensive, sometimes I just can't get what I'd really love to. And 6 months of eating awesome food and caring for my hair with Pantene...I'm going to look like a Goddess (to someone with bad eyesight - but that's better than nothing haha)....I will be glowing from the inside and shining on the outside!

  23. Oh and sorry - I forgot to put my names.

  33. If I have extra money left over I'd use it to help people in my community who are struggling. I already do all I can with what I have but there are so many kids who don't have new shoes and their parents simply cannot afford them. My cousin is one of those people. I won a sports authority gift card and gave it to her son so he could have a new pair of shoes where his toes weren't sticking out. It's important to me to do all I can for others, I've been this way since childhood. I'd even offer half of a snickers bar to everyone in my household LOL
