Sometimes you need to shake things up. ‘Cause winter is coming. Or you just got a year older (aarrghh). So I was excited to try some new believe organics skincare products and offer a giveaway!
You see, this year (this month even) I decided I was going to stop getting older and start repeating years instead. And so that no one would be the wiser, I even took my birthday off of Facebook.
It all seemed to be working… until an old friend I hadn’t seen in decades, err, years posted a Happy Birthday Facebook message. Soon, a good dozen others noticed–including a few who even figured out my intention ;-). I guess there is no ageing incognito!
But at least I got a fun new “birthday present” from believe organics.
Regular readers know that I have a longstanding interest in natural bodycare products–and believe organics fits right in. Even better, they have recently launched a new simple three-step skincare kit for radiant skin – the natural way!
It starts with a clay based Cleansing Caviar which offers gentle cleansing and light exfoliation (note that reviewers on their site say it has helped with acne). This is followed by a Clarifying Toner to tighten pores, refresh and soften the skin. The final step is Facial Elixir, a delicately scented blend of nourishing organic oils to balance the skin. My skin hasn’t felt this young in years!
Did you catch the recent ban of many anti-bacterial soaps (NYTimes article here)? Well, natural bodycare advocates could have told you that natural is better years ago! Many of your bodycare products may contain chemicals that can be absorbed through your skin! In face, pharmaceutical companies produce drugs that are delivered this way (including hormone replacement skin patches).
So if you are trying to live healthier by eating better but haven’t paid attention to your soaps, lotions and cosmetics, you are only part way there. Check out this information packed discussion from the environmental working group to learn more.
Yes, it is much nicer to go with products like believe organics’ which are handcrafted in small batches from sustainable, wild harvested, fair trade, non-GMO and certified organic botanical ingredients! I am enjoying mine and can offer the same to one lucky reader!
And now the giveaway for the believe organics 3 Steps Skincare Set (pictured above)! Sponsored by believe organics, it is open to US residents and closes November 6, at midnight CST.
