I am so excited to be sharing this “home & beauty” green giveaway project that I have been secretly working on! It’s a collaboration with truly wonderful people and brands, and my way of saying thank you from the bottom of my heart, for joining me, sharing your thoughts, for being part of the olexaLOVE community. ❤
Here is what is included in the GIVEAWAY….
Organic Coco Infusion in Pua Lei by Leahlani Skincare
This beautiful, tropical body oil is made with unrefined coconut oil, cold pressed organic macadamia & kukui nut oils and gently infused with sea buckthorn oil. This infusion is a powerhouse of antioxidants, vitamins and rejuvenating, soothing and hydrating properties, as well as smelling completely exotic. Use it in your hair, on your body, or shave with it.
This little gem was a bonus item, sent by the passionate and lovely Leah, because that’s just the sort of soul she is ❤ I haven’t personally used this product, but based on how exceptional the rest of the items from Leahlani Skincare I’ve tried have been, I have no doubts it is a keeper.
Mermaid Mask + Champagne Serum by Leahlani Skincare
This green “superfood for your skin” mask made it into my 2014 Favorites, and continues to trump all other masks I try. It is FULL of skin-loving nutrients including Hawaiian raw honey, Hawaiian spirulina, Chlorella, sea buckthorn, luminess algae and 15 botanicals. Using this mask on freaking out skin (dry, congested, acne, black heads, etc.) is like pushing the “reset” button for my skin.
My skin doesn’t take well to using serums every day, but, especially in the winter, it can need an extra boost and it drinks up this serum full of hormonally-balancing essential oils, and signature antioxidant “cocktail” of ginkgo boloba, olive leaf, roobios leaf, white and green tea. It leaves my skin looking “glowing from within.”
Handmade Reusable Cocktail Napkins by Sunshine In Thyme
While makeup and skincare have been my “jumping off” point for “going green,” I am constantly searching for areas that I can improve in my life to become more sustainable. Bonus is when those changes mean PRETTY THINGS (!) like these gorgeous reusable napkins made by Alicia of Sunshine in Thyme. Not gonna lie, a little sad to see these go!
(8 oz) Raw Organic Coconut Oil by Cocovit
The endless uses for coconut oil have been sung on all corners of the internet (hair mask, oil pulling, shaving balm, aid digestion, reduce stretch marks, heal cuts etc.) but, in addition, what makes Cocovit‘s unique is they can truly claim being 100% raw since their extraction process is without heat, meaning their oil contains the highest nutrient and enzyme potency.
One thing I have definitely noticed about this coconut oil is that it sinks in much faster than any other regular coconut oil I’ve used – making it a pleasanter, more convenient experience to us it as a body moisturizer. I talk more about how I personally use this oil in my latest Skincare Routine Update, but let’s just say it has made my eye lashes grow like no other!
Original Hand Lettered Art by Sarahlove Calligraphy
This girl is incredibly talented. I am constantly amazed by the lettering she does for weddings (everything down to handwriting on mirrors!). So far she has gained clients through word-of-mouth, but very soon is planning to launch her Etsy offering hand lettering for signage, invitations, envelopes, place cards, etc.
For now be content seeing more of her gasp-worthy work on her instagram, and a chance to win this original (not a print) frameable 4×6 design. (frame not included)
