New to Me Product and a Giveaway!

I've mentioned before that I am sort of a product hoarder and I'm a sucker (sometimes) for claims and packaging. I am really trying to be good now and only buy things when I need them. I don't like the clutter and do I really need 5 different blushes at one time or 8 lip glosses? Some of you might say yes, and if so, maybe some of you may have a problem like me.

One of the blogs I follow and local blogger, Leslie from Around the Table had a post a few weeks back reviewing a product I never heard of Kari Gran. She was also hosting a giveaway. I was very intrigued about this new to me product. Then just a day or so later at a family dinner, my sister in law mentions she is trying a new skin care system... Kari Gran. No way! After hearing about this product within a couple days, I knew I had to give it a shot.

It's a local company, in Seattle and it is also an all natural, organic skin care line. All the ingredients are listed on their website.  I am big into cleaning without harmful chemicals and I am trying to move that onto my skincare needs. Did you know up to 60% of what we put on our skin gets absorbed into our body and bloodstream? Did you know there is very little regulation on products used in the personal care products and cosmetics we use? There are some serious chemicals being added to these products and they are not being tested on their safety at all.

That being said, I was anxious to try this line out and after the first use I was in love.
The cleanser is made of a blend of oils and vitamin E. You may have noticed the buzz around oil cleansing and believe me this stuff works. You could certainly buy your own oil but this is a blend of high quality organic oils that I don't think I could buy and make for any less. Nor do I have the time.
It pulls away all my makeup (every spec of mascara too), oil and dirt. It leaves my skin very clean and not tight or oily as you might think.

The Hydrating Tonic and Essential serum is to be put on after you wash off the cleansing oil at night and to use in the morning as well. It feels so fresh! I wake up and my skin looks really great. I swear my makeup stays on longer as well. Speaking of makeup, I also have purchased their mineral foundation and lip whip as well. Both super great products too!

I am really loving this product line so much and you know when you try something new and love it and you just want to share it with all your best friends? Well, that's what I'm doing.

I am very excited to announce that Kari Gran has graciously agreed to giveaway one of their starter kits (valued at $35) to one of my readers.

  5. It's amazing what harmful ingredients are in beauty products (as well as cleaning products, paint, food!) I'm so glad more and more companies are seeking to create products that work, and do not contain potentially harmful ingredients.
