Clean Beauty Product Giveaway: Well Within

By September 20, 2017Giveaways, Uncategorized

Who wants to win some luxury clean beauty products?

The more I learn about scary chemicals that are in so many of our daily products, the more I want to clean up my beauty routine to protect not only my skin but my entire body. Slowly but surely, I have been replacing products with harmful chemicals with clean, safe and cruelty-free products.

That’s why I am so excited to partner with Well Within beauty for this incredible giveaway in honor of the changing season.

Well Within is a lux line of plant-based beauty products that is rich in organic ingredients and phytonutrients to nourish the skin. Their products are free from parabens, petroleum, formaldehyde, GMOs, artificial dyes, and so much more. My favorite fun fact is that Well Within develop and produce their products according to EU guidelines which is way more strict than our FDA.

Our giveaway for a welcome back to fall includes the following 2 products:

Nourish + Protect Antioxidant Moisturizer ($200 value)

Depuff + Illuminate Eye Firming Complex ($175 value)

That’s a $375 value of amazing products! Scroll to the end of this article for giveaway details and instructions on how to enter.

Your skin is your body’s largest organ and it soaks up and absorbs everything we rub into it. So, when cleaning up your beauty products it’s important to see what’s in them and not just listen to the claims of what they can do. Sure, a product marketing team can tell us that this cream can tighten and firm skin while giving you a more youthful appearance. But, at what cost? Many beauty products on the market contain chemicals that are linked to endocrine disruption, weight gain and even cancer. Let’s take a look at some of those nasty chemicals to look out for:

Pthalates: found in moisturizers, deodorants, perfumes and hairsprays. Pthalates are known endocrine disruptors that are linked to increased breast cancer risk, reproductive birth defects in males and females and early breast development in girls.

Worth it? HELL NO!

Parabens: found in facial cleansers, shampoos and deodorants. Parabens contain estrogen-mimicking properties that can increase risk of breast cancer.

Worth it? NO WAY!

Toluene: found in nail polish, nail treatments, hair color/bleaching products. Expecting a baby? Toluene vapors are strong enough to thin paint and can cause developmental harm to a developing fetus.

Worth it? ABSOLUTELY NOT!

Formaldehyde: found in nail polish, cleansers and body washes. This is a human carcinogen (cancer-causing agent) and can weaken the immune system.

Worth it? NOPE!

Sunscreen chemicals: chemicals such as PABA, avobenzone, benzophenone, homosalate and echoxycinnmate are found in popular sunscreen formulas and can cause cellular damage and cancer.

Worth it? Not a chance!

That is why I trust my face with Well Within beauty products and I want you to try them too!

Here is how you can win $375 worth of clean beauty products for your face:

    Hi Jen!

    Thank you for sharing these products. I was just looking up beauty products that are safe and clean for me to use since I’m having some hormone issues. I’m looking forward to “cleaning” up the products I’m putting on my body.

    Much love -Jaclyn Pipa

    Well Within products sound amazing, Jen and you really set off a lightbulv in my head. I’m turning 52 and hormones are turning too ugh. I hope it’s not too late (damage wise) to give these a try and add them to my new chemical free regime!

    Hi –
    I have recently been trying to clean up my routine too. So, this is very timely for me.

    I switched from traditional OTC facial cleanser, and lotion to a coconut oil-based product line. My skin feels and looks great. This product line seems to be in the same vain as the one I am using which makes me very interested in trying it.

    I would love if I can find a deodorant that is natural (that works) to switch to.

    • Jennifer says:

      Hi Evelyn – I’m happy to hear this! Coconut oil is awesome for the skin too! Also, my personal experience with finding a natural deodorant is that I just stopped wearing it altogether! Over time and a more plant based diet, I don’t smell. TMI! But, you can try it 🙂

  • Mina Ci says:

    I’ve been struggling with my health since my teenage years and last September I finally fell off the cliff. I’ve tried every ‘diet’ possible and finally two months ago I tried a plant-based diet and began to see improvements in my health for the first time in decades🙏🏼Being a vegan (I also don’t eat Soy, Corn, Grains and strive to be a raw vegan) has enlightened me and I need better everything now not just food, but products applied to the skin (our largest organ that’s so easily forgotten) and eventually to exteriors like cars, homes etc. I use essential oils at the moment but they can be drying even when mixed with a carrier oil. I’ve been looking for plant-based facial products and would absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE to try these. 😊

  • Jackie Sutera says:

    I want to try these! Was just starting to look into finding a new line that is more natural! Scary things are happening in my family regarding allergic reactions and hormones. I need to clean up my act even more!

    I want ALL OF THESE! I’m actively switching everything I have to plant-based, natural & sustainable products. It’s so important to me to find products that are beautifying for my skin (especially my face!). Especially interested in the Depuff + Illuminate Eye Firming Complex – I often get less than 8 hours of sleep and my eyes often give it away…

  • Joan Garza says:

    This sounds amazing. Thank you for sharing! I’m going to have to do a little investigating.

  • Jennelle Brooks says:

    Thanks for sharing! I miss your Hapkido urban warrior classes in NY!

  • Angela says:

    Awesome products and exciting giveaway! I’ve just rebooted a clean eating diet and I think lifestyle is also an important part of that effort. What we put on our skin and the products we use every day around the house also affect our health, so I am crossing my fingers for the chance to try Well Within skincare! <3

  • Amy Bunlong says:

    Thank you for your blog…I am always reading the ingredients to see if am going to buy the face products, lotions, shampoos, deodorants, even makeup or not. This is great to know there are more products that are doing the plant base natural ingredients.

  • Robyn Hurst says:

    Hi Jennifer!
    Thank for this opportunity!
    I am overcoming a progesterone deficiency through wholistic care (cream, nutrition), & these products would be sooo helpful! I have already been avoiding some of the items listed above for many years, but realized I need to be even more diligent due to some health symptoms…and it is not cheap! Would love the extra boost!
    I love, love, love what you stand for and are all about…😍
    Sincerely,
    Robyn Hurst

  • Sara says:

    Thank you-wonderful idea.

    My birthday is this week and with aging comes great concern over what I put on my skin. I’m vegan and finding good plantbased, cruelty-free products is always a mission of mine. Thank you for the opportunity!
