You probably already know this about me: I’m a beauty aisle hand wringer. I’m the woman in Duane Reade frowning at mile-long ingredient lists and struggling to decode them in search of a perfect face cream. I’ve spent the better part of a half hour debating potions only to leave empty handed. I may or may not have once argued with an esthetician about petrochemicals…in public. Beauty products are an investment, and I don’t want to invest in something that doesn’t meet my standards.
Nahla Beauty is a new sponsor of Reading My Tea Leaves, but I like to think of them as an answer to my prayers. Maybe yours, too. Their ingredient lists are 100% readable and 100% free of parabens and petrochemicals and phthalates, and phenoxyethanol, and on and on. They smell wonderful, but not because they’re pumped full of artificial fragrance. Maybe most important of all, they’ve been making my skin feel terrific.This week, Nahla has generously offered a whole selection of goodies for one Reading My Tea Leaves reader. These are the goods:
- Full size Forest Mint Gentle Foaming Milk
- Full size Bulgarian Rose Hydrating Mist
- Full size Amla Instant Repair Cream
- Full size Flowering Quince Bath & Body Oil
- Your choice of Sample Kits; one of these three remedies
For a chance to win, hop over to Nahla Beauty to explore their handiwork for yourself and leave a comment back here, complete with contact information and a description of one thing you’re going to do this month to be kind to yourself and kind to the planet.
In addition to producing honest and reliable products, Nahla has a long history of philanthropic giving. They give away 20% of their profits annually. From now through April 30, they’re donating 100% of their web order proceeds to One Fund Boston to support victims of last week’s marathon bombing. If ever there was a time to invest in something special, this might be it.
And as if all that wasn’t enough: Nahla Beauty is offering 10% off your order of $65 or more with discount code “TEALEAVES”. As a bonus, they’ll also include a special gift with every order regardless of size. This offer is valid through May 7, 2013 at 11:59 pm eastern time.
The giveaway will close on Thursday evening at 5:00 pm and a randomly selected winner will be announced on Friday. Lots of luck and thanks for reading!
