Vegan Skincare Goodie Box Giveaway!


It's time for the Vegan Skincare Goodie Box Giveaway! For the past month I have been putting together a killer box of some of the best vegan skincare products around, including three up-and-coming lines that you need to know about.

How to enter:

1. Follow us on Facebook.
2. Subscribe to the blog via email. (Look to the left of this post)
3. Leave a comment on this post when you have done so and voila! You are entered to win.

The Goods:

The box includes samples of gorgeous Pure Results skincare, a Two-Week Skin Detox Kit from Root Science and freshly made goodies from Bespoke Therapies. 

A little bit about our partners in crime.

PURE RESULTS

This woman's products changed my life. (No this isn't an infomercial.)

After years of abusing my acne-prone skin with harsh cleansers, antibiotics, and even medication I was at the point of despair when a girlfriend of mine suggested that I go see her facialist, Shari Seboek. My first time at her studio I broke down in tears. She soothed me and sent me home with a directive to throw all of the gross drugstore skincare in the garbage and start with a gentle cleanser and a killer moisturizer that felt like a dream on my face.

After about a decade of using her products I can say that it is the best I have ever come across, and I have managed to convert a whole cohort of friends and family who would tell you the same. She makes everything fresh from all natural, ethically sourced ingredients in small batches at a facility in Denver. Her prices are insanely affordable and she is one of the coolest chicks I know.

ROOT SCIENCE

When I stumbled upon Root Science I immediately ordered a sample of their Pure Balance skin oil.

After using it on my face for a week I was positively glowing and my skin felt a bit like a baby's bottom. And considering that just about everything makes my face break out, this oil was a serum from heaven.

The ladies who started the company are insanely passionate about their ingredients, which consist of organic oils that are cold-pressed to ensure the vitamins and minerals are preserved. 

The formulas have proven ingredients that have healing properties to help right the wrongs of severe skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, scars, stretch marks, sun damage, age spots, acne...you get the picture. 

A quote from their manifesto sums them up perfectly:

YES, WE HAVE A LITTLE OBSESSION WITH SKIN CARE, 
And believe the skin is the window to our inner beauty and soul.

'Nuff said.

BESPOKE THERAPIES & SKINCARE

All the way from the UK, the vegan skincare goddess at Bespoke Therapies & Skincare developed SKINVELOP, which contains only ethically sourced, raw botanical ingredients. Jean, who is a Clinical Aromatherapist (and our featured guest blogger this week) started experimenting with natural skincare when she realized that everything she thought was natural wasn't so much.

SKINVELOP uses Alove Vera for cell renewal, Coconut Oil for essential fatty acids, Argan Oil for anti-aging...the list goes on and on.

She literally just made a special batch of her essentials for the giveaway, which means you are only getting the freshest, most lovely products directly from the UK.

I promised I would only give you the best vegan skincare, even if it meant flying it a few thousand miles!

So there you have it. The round up of our three featured vegan skincare goddesses. There are lots more goodies in the box including lip balm, soap and scrumptious lotions.

We look forward to having you as a Rooted Veganista!

  7. Your skin story sounds so similar to mine and my son's, except we haven't really found the happy ending...yet! Thank you for the introduction to her products. I'm so glad to have found (and subscribed to) your blog as well. Maybe I'll get lucky and get a free skin fix, too!

    1. Contact Root Science and see if they can send you some samples of their facial oil and face soap. It might be a good time to try it out. Also, have you ever tried Retin-A? It isn't very organic, but it has been amazing for my skin.
