In addition, KAO will draw a winner-a-day for a basket filled with beauty, skincare and cosmetics goodies!

In case you don’t know, KAO is the “master” company behind many well known, and long beloved, beauty products including Curel, Jergens, Biore, and John Frieda (ooo… I’d love to win a lifetime supply of JF’s Root Awakening shampoo and conditioner!).

Speaking of being a Temptress, here are my results from the quiz…
Bionic Beauty's Temptress Temperature quiz results
Apparently, I am Just Right. The question I had the most trouble with was “What was your class title in high school?” The answer choices being: Class Clown, Class Flirt, Class President, or Homecoming Queen. Ummm… I was Class Geek but I guess that isn’t very tempting. Ha!

Now… since I know at least some of you will take this quiz (don’t leave me stranded ladies!), I’d love to hear your results. Just leave ’em in the comments below.

Best of luck to everyone! Hopefully one of our very own Bionic Beauties will win!

This contest is open to USA residents only. Sorry to my international Bionic Beauties…
