Product Review & GIVEAWAY: SKIN Organic Body Care

Alright folks, I have discovered a fabulous new organic product line to share with you!  I am so excited about it!  The company is called SKIN — a complete body care line free of chemicals, parabens, fragrances, and preservatives.  I love it because SKIN is completely organic and natural.  Check out SKIN’s product ratings on the Skin Deep Cosmetic Database from the Environmental Working Group.

SKIN was founded by Stephanie Simkins who has a passion for organic eating and holistic healing.  She saw the need for truly natural beauty care products and created her SKIN line using organic oils and botanicals.  Her products are designed to nourish and heal your skin, specifically formulated with food-grade ingredients such as green tea, fruit extracts, and coconut oil.  Stephanie was so sweet to send Dave and I a goodie bag of her products to test out and review.  And I must say, we were both deeply impressed by the quality and results.  It has been almost 3 months since we began using her facial cleanser, toner and moisturizers and our skin has never looked or felt better!

My favorites from SKIN are the Lemon Aid Face Wash, Lemon Fresh Toner, and Daily Greens Cream.  The face wash is like no other I’ve ever used.  I have combination skin, so it’s always hard to find a good cleanser that gets rid of the oily buildup without drying me out.  Well, SKIN’s Lemon Aid Face Wash is PERFECT!  Any blemishes are healed up after one or two washes.  Followed up with the Lemon Fresh Toner, and my pores are tight and face glowing afterward.  I like the use the Daily Greens Cream around my eyes and along my cheek bones.  It is infused with green tea which helps to neutralize free radicals, and amped up with vitamins and minerals.  I noticed after a couple weeks use my eyes were less puffy and those dark circles that came with my pregnancy were diminishing.

I encourage all of you to check out this fabulous product line.  And fellas, take it from my husband: he’s IN LOVE with the cleanser from SKIN!  It’s not just for the ladies!  And I’ve been using the Lemon Mousse Hand & Body Cream on baby Austin’s bottom when he needs a little diaper rash refreshening.  Works like a charm!  These products will be featured on my Healing Cuisine’s Christmas Gift List this year for sure.


I have great news for you.  Stephanie has generously offered to share the same product package she sent use with one of you!  The Giveaway Contest will run from Wednesday October 12th until Monday October 17th at 9:00am.  I will use to select the winner and announce it here at Healing Cuisine at 11:00am on Monday, October 17th.  One lucky winner (open to U.S. residents only) will receive one each of the following shipped directly to your door:

  1. Ohhhh, a Skin giveaway! I have been using Skin products for a few months. I have problematic acne prone skin. I like both the Naked face wash and the Lemon Aid wash. I also like the Clay mask. I would love to try some of the other products, particulary the toner.

  2. Love Skin!!! My absolute favorite product is Apricot Eyes-eye makeup remover. So gentle! Smells great, too! My whole family likes Limeberry.

  3. Oh this line looks awesome! I can’t decide between the Lemon Aid Face Wash and the Hydrating Face Serum. I LOVE the scent of lemon/citrus! And I could use some hydration too. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  4. I’m looking for something that’s safe to use while pregnant and effective on acne so I’d love to try the lemon aid face wash!

  5. SO excited! I’ve been so frustrated lately trying to find a new product line, toxin-free, for my fickle face. I’d love to try the Lemon Aid and the Lemon Fresh Toner.

    Thank you, Elise & Stephanie!

  6. I would love to try the unscented Naked face products…as we’ve been getting off of all the “bad” stuff and switching to the Advanced plan in our home, I have discovered that when I used my skin care (my “normal” stuff), I feel queasy, and I think at least part of it is the scent! I would love to try skincare that matches my new lifestyle! Thanks for the chance!

  7. I would love to try the Skin’s Rosey Plum Day Moisturizer. I love the feel of soft skin! I love that it is described as light as well!

  8. I would love the naked face wash! I have such a hard time finding a natural face wash I feel confident in, and actually works. Thanks for this great giveaway!

  9. I’d love to try the clay! Sounds like something fun and indulgent for a new mom! Thanks for the giveaway Elise!

  10. I would love to try the Lemon Aid Face Wash. Lemon is so refreshing and I love the smell!

  11. I’d like to try Skin’s Claramint lip balm. I am trying to break the habit of using chapstick, etc. and would love something new to try.

  12. Oh those do look good, I’d have to say I’m most interested in the Daily Greens cream since my skin is uber sensitive, gets inflamed from just about everything (honestly never found anything that doesn’t make my skin freak out a little, usually use plain almond oil) and the fall weather is making everything dry out. Also should like to try the Lemon Aid, since I’ve been pregnant my skin has been in an uproar.

  13. Wow, so many to choose from! I think I’d try the orange body wash first.

  14. Alright I definitely want to try the Lemon Mousse
    Hand and Body cream. My hands are so dry
    From washing dishes, the weather, and I am a
    Massage therapist. I have had a hard time finding
    A hand cream that works plus safe for my skin. Thanks!

  15. I’ve been wanting to change facial cleansing products. The Naked Face Unscented Face Wash looks great! I also liked on fb. THANKS!!

  16. I checked out the “Skin” site as you suggested and am excited to try the “Naked” face and body care products in particular. I can hardly wait to help you spread the good news about these wonderful products to friends, family, and co-workers!

  17. Hey Elise :) sweet giveaway!
    I wanna try the hand cream.. washing my hands a gazillion times at the hospital drys them out tons, I keep trying new products. The face wash would be awesome to try-I have combo skin too.
    ..and of course I like you on FB :)

  18. I want to try the Lemon Mousse Hand Cream because my hands get so dry in the winter and I love the scent of lemon.

  19. Wow! These look like amazing products! I would like to try the clay for a good face exfoliation and also the cranberry orange salt scrub for the rest of the body.

  20. The eye-makeup remover! No matter what I try, my skin is left feeling oily when I take the time to remove my eye-makeup…so sadly, I usually just rinse with water & call it good.

  21. I would love to try the Lemon Aid Face Wash, as I also have combo skin, as this sounds like it would work for me. Thanks for letting us know about such a wonderful product!

  22. I’d love to try the Lemon Lips!

  23. These look like amazing products! I don’t have a face cleanser I like so I really want to try the lemon aid face wash. The detoxifying mask sounds awesome too. I need the moisture though in the CO air!

  24. I would like to try the Lemon Aid Face Wash. I know lemon is good for getting rid of acne.

  25. I “liked” it on facebook and have “liked” Healing Cuisine for a while now!
