As a busy mom, it’s really hard to take the time to take care of ME some days. But it really is so important to take care of ourselves – even if it’s just for 5-10 minutes per day.

So I’m always looking for ways to pamper myself that are also good for me. Most skincare products contain lots of harmful, synthetic chemicals. As a melanoma survivor, it’s very important for me to only use natural skincare products since 60% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream.

One of my favorite brands of natural skincare and cosmetic products is 100% Pure. They truly offer 100% Pure, natural products. Their makeup is even tinted with fruit and vegetable pigments! You can’t get much more natural than that.

I also love their bath & body products. Their body wash cleans super well while adding hydration to my dry skin. And their nourishing body creams smell delicious (remember, they’re scented with real fruit, vegetable and floral scents!).

But their skincare products are also second-to-none. One of my favorite lines is their Brightening line. I grew up in Southern California, playing in the sun every day. And I have the sun damage (and skin cancer history) to prove it.

The places where the sun damage is most visible is on my face and my hands. It actually bothers me more on my hands than it does on my face since I can easily cover up the sun spots on my face with a tinted moisturizer.

I decided to test out 100% Pure’s brightening line on one of my hands to see what would happen. (I was actually only using the Brightening Scrub + Mask and the Coffee Cherry Sun Damage Corrective Cream on my hands at the time.)

I was amazed that after 6 applications (I was only remembering to do it once per week) there was a noticeable difference between the appearance of my hands. The hand I had been treating had a much more even tone and looked more smooth and supple. I wish I would have taken before and after pictures!

I have heard nothing but great things from other women who’ve tried the 100% Pure Brightening line as well. It is compatible with all skin types and I love that this line gets its brightening effect from all natural, gentle ingredients like bearberry, kojic acid, sake, fruit acids, licorice, vitamin c, lemon juice and strawberries rather than harsh chemical skin lighteners like hydroquinone.

Because I love this line so much, I’m going to be giving away a 100% Pure Brightening Skincare Gift Set to one of my readers during the Green is Beautiful Giveaway Hop, beginning February 20.

The 100% Pure Brightening Gift Set includes:

  • Facial Cleansing Brush
  • Brightening Cleanser (1.5 fl oz)
  • Brightening Tonique (2 fl oz)
  • Brightening Scrub + Mask (0.6 fl oz)
  • Brightening Night Balm (0.12 oz)

100% Pure is one of the wonderful brands we represent at alex+von. Being a consultant for alex+von has been a great blessing in my life, and I love being able to give back to my readers like this.

I LOVE 100% pure. I’ve used so many of their products and will always be a fan! I love the body creams and especially the coffee bean eye cream! I love it all!

I could sure use this! I’m in my early 40′s and don’t use makeup or any conventional wrinkle creams, etc.

I’ve only tried one product from 100% Pure in the past, but I really loved it. I really like how natural the ingredients are! The skin brightening line sounds perfect for spring and summer…time to get rid of the dull, dry winter skin on my face! :)

I’m to the point now where I just don’t use anything, which isn’t good either. I’d love to try something like this!

I really want to try the children’s bubble bath with my girl. We used California Baby but with their ingredient change we have had to find a new reward for our little girl in replacement of bubble baths! My natural body soaps just don’t bubble lol
