Natural Skin Care by Alchemilla: Review and $150 Gift Certificate Giveaway (Ends 2/6) U.S. (closed)



I am so very excited to share with you a product from a wonderful company called Alchemilla, a natural skin care company.  I am always looking for new products that contain natural ingredients and are good for you.  And I have to say that this company is exactly what I could want and more.

First off, it is so great to find a company from the Pacific Northwest!  I love that the company makes the products in small batches using high quality plant products.  Most of these plants are grown either in their own gardens or their herb gardens in Oregon!  If you have never come to the Pacific Northwest, you may not be able to fully appreciate how things are out here, but I am a native.  I am always excited when something is made in Washington and/or Oregon.

Secondly, it is so important to me to find cruelty-free products that do not pollute the body or planet.  Did you make a resolution to be more environmentally conscious this year?  This is a company you can trust to help you with that resolution.

I had the supreme privilege of reviewing their Jasmine Replenishing Cream.  From the moment I opened this product, I was invigorated by the scent.  I love scents that are not overpowering but are just right in strength. And this product's scent is definitely just right.

My skin tends to be rather dry, and I am always grateful for products that help with this skin problem.  Unfortunately, so many products cause me to break out or make my skin too oily.  Not true with this cream. The moment I touched the silky lotion and rubbed it on my face, I knew it would make my skin more supple without causing a breakout.  And that is correct.  Even two weeks later, I am still using it, and my face skin is smooth without being oily or dry.  The natural balance in my facial skin has certainly been restored.

When you read the ingredients of this rich cream, you can easily understand why it works so well.  It uses real Jasmine essential oil (that is why it smells so nice).  It has a calming effect on your skin and on the user.  It even creates a liquid barrier to keep the moisture from being lost.  You can imagine how important that is especially during the harsh winter!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Now I know what you're probably thinking.  I mentioned a giveaway in the post title, and that is true.  This company has been generous enough to offer a $150 gift certificate to purchase anything you would like from their shop!  I don't know about you, but I think that is very generous of this company!  You can try the product I reviewed and anything else you would like.  All you need to do is enter the rafflecopter form below, and you are entered to win.  This is only open to my U.S. readers, and all entries must be received by February 6 at 9 P.M. Pacific Time.
