New York, NY (PRWEB) October 09, 2012
For a nation with a serious down-time deficit and a busy holiday season approaching, help is on the way. October 17, 2012, is “Me Day”: the first day devoted to helping women treat themselves generously with relaxation, beauty and fashion without the guilt.
Four major brands, including SpaFinder Wellness (spafinder.com), Ice (ice.com), Folica (folica.com) and e.l.f. Cosmetics (eyeslipsface.com), have come together to create this light-hearted ecommerce holiday that is dedicated to shameless self-celebration. Each company will offer special one-day-only deals on its website and also give away valuable daily and grand prizes to lucky winners of the Me Day Sweepstakes.
According to Jonathan Kowit, CMO and president of Ice, “It’s time to pause from all the distractions in life and treat yourself to some fun during Me Day.” The no-purchase-necessary Me Day Sweepstakes features a grand prize for one lucky winner, who will receive:
o A “Free Year of Spa & Wellness” from SpaFinder Wellness: Twelve (12) SpaFinder Wellness Gift Cards for a total of $1,200 in free spa and wellness services redeemable at thousands of locations in the U.S. or abroad;
o A beautiful pair of diamond stud earrings from Ice valued at $795;
o A glamorous package of e.l.f. Cosmetics’ best-selling beauty products and a $250 gift card for a luxurious beauty supply shopping spree, worth a total value of over $800;
o An exclusive bundle of hair products and styling tools from Folica.com, plus a voucher for $350 for the winner’s choice of hair care and styling gifts, valued at $1,200
Win a Valuable Daily Prize
Every day, from Wednesday, October 10, through Wednesday, October 17, one of the participating companies will give away a prize worth up to $200. Entering the sweepstakes automatically qualifies participants for a chance to win a daily prize and/or the grand prize as well.
Special “Me Day” Discount Offers
On Wednesday, October 17, websites of the participating companies will also feature one-day discounts. This way, women can pamper themselves with products from all of the participating companies, at a fraction of the everyday cost.

“On Me Day 2012, we hope women will take a deep breath and treat themselves to the quality relaxation time they deserve,” said Brad Jones, vice president, marketing & partnerships at SpaFinder Wellness. "Everyone needs an occasional mental and physical vacation from the stress of the every day, and what better excuse than Me Day.”
Survey Says: U.S. Moms Need a Day for Themselves
“Me Day” comes not a second too soon to a nation starved for downtime. An April 2012 survey of 740 mothers conducted by SpaFinder Wellness found that 72 percent of moms with kids at home have an hour or less to themselves each day.
Ninety-seven percent of moms report they are either “occasionally” or “frequently” stressed out, with the majority (51 percent) saying that they are frequently stressed out. How do moms like to de-stress best? According to the study, 49 percent dream of going to a spa and/or getting a massage.
