Andalou Naturals Skincare Giveaway!!

Of course I love doing giveaways for you guys, but today I’m DOUBLY excited because these products are something I use on the regular (like, everyday), and I’m stoked to be able to share them with you!

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you may remember that since last spring, I’ve slowly converted nearly all of my beauty products to those that are formulated without the use of parabens, pthlates, and other unnecessary chemical junk. I’ve seen such an amazing difference in my skin, so much so that I no longer wear foundation or powder! That’s right. Only a dab of concealer (a natural one, of course), and I’m good to go.

Part of the secret of course is a great skin care program. And lately, Andalou Naturals has played a huge role in that. I use their Probiotic +C Renewal Cream, which uses apple and grape fruit stem cell cultures and hyaluronic acid to deliver smooth, perfectly moisturized skin. It soaks in SUPER fast, with no gross greasy, oily feeling. Plus, I like that it’s easy to find at my local Whole Foods.

Once they heard about how much I was digging their stuff, Andalou Naturals was kind enough to send me their Luminous Eye Serum. It’s been a lifesaver given some long nights and the fact that I’m in my late 20s and my skin just isn’t what it used to be. The extra bit of under eye moisture has really helped with lines! I also got to sample their brand new Grapefruit +C exfoliating peel, which had me a little nervous at first. Mention the word ‘peel’ to me, and I somehow always envision that episode of Sex and the City where Samantha has a chemical peel gone awry. I had zero reason to worry though. The peel soaks into your skin, and after 10 minutes and a rinse, you’re left with soft skin that for me, seems to make moisturizer work better! It’s gentle enough that you can use it up to 3 times per week.

Andalou is a fantastic company that uses all fair-trade ingredients, with a minimum of 70% organic content. Additionally, for every single sale of their products or newsletter subscriptions, Andalou donates $1 to one of four charitable organizations! And of course, none of their products are ever tested on animals. Beauty you can actually feel good about? I’m so down.

So today, I’m sharing the love with you guys. Andalou has been kind enough to offer one reader a full-size Probiotic +C Renewal Cream and the Grapefruit +C exfoliating peel to try — probably before the latter even hits stores! These two are sure to help perk up your winter skin routine.

Want in on the free beauty goodies? Here’s how to enter (up to six times!)

The full disclosure part: all opinions are my own. Samples and prize provided gratis by a very generous Andalou Naturals. Yes, I really like and use their products.

    I need to try this stuff! The moisturizer sounds great. My skin seems to get worse as I get older so maybe a switch to something more natural is just the thing I need. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    Just started using the Luminous eye serum last week, and I have already noticed a difference. Usually I buy an organic brand that must be purchased at a spa, but they were out of stock and I just couldn’t wait a week for more. I went to my local co-op and saw this relatively new product. The ingredient list was impressive and comparable to the “other’ eye serum. So glad the spa was out of stock, I like this product so much better!

    One line in your blog smacked me – “the fact that I’m in my late 20s and my skin just isn’t what it used to be.” – I’m smack dab in the middle of my 20’s and dreading these changes….perhaps this would be a good time to start looking into that serum. :S
