Weekend Giveaway: Nerium Anti-Aging Skincare (2 Winners)

Nerium all three products

So, you all probably know that I’m really leery of products that come with big promises. Like, “THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER!! THIS ONE PRODUCT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER!!”

Yeah. I’m a total skeptic when it comes to big promises… because I’ve tried a lot of “miracle” products over the years and very, very few of them have impressed me. Especially when it comes to skincare.

Most are just meh. Or worse than “meh” — and they end up breaking out my sensitive skin in bad ways.

So when a box of Nerium products showed up at my house a few weeks ago, I admit I kind of had a bad attitude about it. I was rolling my eyes and thinking, “Great! I gotta review another skincare line that will promise life-altering things and do nothing or maybe even break my skin out more.”

{Just keeping it real here.}

I hate writing negative reviews, but I also love my readers too much to write anything less than 100% honest reviews. So I was afraid to start trying this product, thinking I was going to have to do another “meh” review for this giveaway.

Well, guess what? I was incredibly surprised and elated to discover that this skincare product actually has seemed to live up to its promises.

For real.

After using it for just 2-3 days, I could already tell that my skin looked healthier, felt healthier, and was breaking out less. After using it for 5 days, I had the healthiest-looking skin I could remember having in a long time.

I told Jesse last night, “I can’t believe it, but I actually think I believe that this stuff works! Or at least it seems like it’s working better than anything I’ve used in a very long time.”

You see, I’ve stuck with Mary Kay for years because it’s basically the only skincare line that has consistently not made my eczema- and acne-prone skin worse. But I’m totally going to keep using these bottles of Nerium I got as review products as long as they keep working.

And who knows? My stubborn, skeptical self just might actually switch skincare lines if these results keep happening! The Nerium products are really expensive, in my definition (see, I told you I can’t help but be brutally honest!), so they will have to show me some pretty crazy, amazing results over the next 30-60 days for me to be wholeheartedly convinced.

However, I’m willing to consider it if these results continue to happen. Because, as those of you who struggle with eczema and adult acne can probably relate to, we will go to great lengths and pretty great expenses if something will actually cause major improvement and less frustrating breakouts (don’t even start asking me about all of the weird diets and natural remedies I’ve attempted over the years just to clear up my face!)

Nerium Product Giveaway

Now, for those of you who are wondering more about Nerium, here are the details from Katie Parson, the brand partner who is graciously sponsoring this giveaway (and who had the courage to send me product knowing full well I might give it a negative review!):

Nerium is a skincare line that addresses all of the issues that make our skin blemished, wrinkled or “tired” looking. Using plant-based ingredients that are free of animal byproducts and gluten, Nerium’s mild formula is safe for the most sensitive of skin (even kids can use it on scrapes or sunburns). The formula’s active ingredient, Nerium Oleander, reduces the appearance of many annoying skin issues.

To see a number of pretty amazing before and after photos and be updated on current promotions, like Katie’s fan page on Facebook.

If you are looking for a natural, all-in-one skin system that eliminates the need for expensive chemical treatments, be sure to enter this giveaway!

One winner will get an ultimate combo pack that includes:

A second winner will receive a bottle of Nerium’s Age-Defying night cream.

48-Hour Giveaway: Moringa Oil and Soap Nuts Liquid (4 Winners)

Green Virgin Products
For a long time, I’ve heard about Soap Nuts — a natural alternative to laundry detergent — but I’d never gotten around to trying them. So I was excited when Green Virgin Products sent me some to try.

What are Soap Nuts?

Soap Nuts actually aren’t nuts at all. They are technically the fruit that grows on the Chinese Soap Berry Tree. These berries are gathered and then dried in the sun to preserve them.

They contain powerful cleaning properties. They are hypoallergenic and gentle on the skin making them great for anyone who is sensitive to chemicals.

How Do You Use Soap Nuts?

If you’ve never used Soap Nuts before, they are really simple to use. Put 3 to 5 whole soap berries in the draw string bag which is included with your purchase. Lightly tie the bag closed and stick it in your washer along with your dirty clothes.

That’s it! They will clean and soften your clothes naturally.


What Are the Benefits to Using Soap Nuts?

Green Virgin Products sent me this list of benefits for using Soap Nuts:

  • Soap Nuts are less than half the cost of regularly-priced Tide.
  • Soap Nuts make clothes extra soft without any fabric softener.
  • Soap Nuts are 100% non-toxic and hypoallergenic.
  • Soap Nuts are a powerful natural detergent.

Do Soap Nuts Really Work?

I was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to use Soap Nuts and with how well they worked. I also loved that you can re-use them for multiple loads of laundry. I didn’t notice any difference in how these worked compared to regular laundry detergent. And it was fun to use them, as well!

Don’t Want to Mess With Soap Nuts But Want the Benefits?

Try Soap Nuts Liquid! The liquid is made with USDA Certified Organic Sapindus Mukorossi Soap Nuts. We extract the saponin using only water. They remove all the solids and tannins and deodorize it. This is all done using high tech filters using no chemicals only water.

The liquid is much easier to use than traditional soap nuts. No more wash bags to look for in your washer and you don’t have to remember how many loads you have done so far.

The Soap Nuts Liquid is also proven to work more effectively. In testing done by an independent lab, (Exova) this product out cleaned the raw nuts by a large margin. The liquid is a little more expensive than raw nuts, but it is still less expensive than Tide and other chemical detergents.

moringa oil

Green Virgin Products is also giving away bottles of Moringa Oil to 4 winners. Here’s more about this oil from their site:

Moringa oil, also known as Ben oil has been used for thousands of years because of its anti-aging properties. Most oils will only have about a one-year shelf life. Moringa oil is the only oil in the world that will never go rancid.

This oil is completely absorbed into the skin and leaves your skin soft, and healthy. It is also prized by massage therapists for its non-greasy feel and is known as the best massage oil in the world. It’s great for your hair too, just apply to damp hair and comb in to spread it around. Have an itchy insect bite? Spply a little oil to it and the itching goes away in a few minutes.
