A Present for You – Block Island Organics Cleanser Giveaway


If you’re concerned about the chemicals used in skin care products as I am, you’ve probably tried to find safe, quality, non-toxic alternatives. It’s not always easy to find products that contain non-harmful ingredients and also perform well.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know that I rarely feature product reviews. However, when the nice folks at Block Island Organics asked if I’d like to try a sample of their Organic Purifying Facial Cleanser I didn’t hesitate to accept. Last year I tried the company’s natural mineral sunscreen, and loved it.

You may remember that I wrote about my environmental concerns with Aveeno Positively Radiant skin cleanser. The packaging seems green, but the ingredients list reads otherwise and contains polluting plastic microbeads.

The Block Island Organics cleanser, on the other hand, is fresh and light. Its ingredients list includes organic additives like rosehip, chamomile, sunflower, avocado and olive. The clear gel feels really nice going on, and after rinsing it off your skin feels soft and smooth, and not dry at all.

So that you can try it, too, Block Island Organics has reserved a full-sized bottle of cleanser for one lucky reader. Just leave a comment at the bottom of this page and answer this question:

What simple pleasure are you enjoying during this holiday season?

Whatever brings you comfort and joy during this busy month of December, share it in a comment and you’ll be automatically entered. The giveaway is open for readers living in the United States, now through Thursday, December 24, at midnight MST.

You can also save 25% on any product from the Block Island Organics site between now and Thursday, Dec. 24 by entering this special discount code: elizac. (The code may not be combined with other codes.)

Thanks so much to Block Island Organics for sponsoring this giveaway, and enjoy this holiday week!
