Alex+Von Review and Giveaway

This morning I ran an awesome fitness class and nutrition presentation with some amazing women from my community. Some of them are new clients of mine and some are older friends. Together, we create a lot of positive energy, support each other, and help each other by recommending great healthy products to each other. Women can do amazing things when we work together!

Those moments this morning made me think about a new company I was introduced to about a month ago by a fellow blogger friend - alex+von.

At alex+von, they are all about offering you well-crafted, socially responsible products from boutique brands recommended and trusted by women. I like that every purchase you make from alex+von supports a small business in the United States, many of whom are run by women. I love that many of the products they offer also help you live a healthier life!

I received two products from the brand 100% Pure. This brand formulates synthetic-, fragrance-, paraben-and toxin free beauty products. They use the most concentrated formulas possible without the use of water, thickeners, emulsifiers or any other fillers. Love that!

My all-time favorite product of theirs is the Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream. The ingredients are all natural and organic, and it helps to reduce puffiness and dark circles under your eyes. Did I mention it smells heavenly? It is like having a shot of coffee for your eyes. When I get up in the morning for my 5:45 am fitness class, this eye cream is what gets me out of bed. The smell wakes me up, and it brightens up my eyes.

The other product I received was the Brightening Facial Scrub and Mask. It is a highly nourishing facial mask to rejuvenate your skin and the perfectly round jojoba beads act as a gentle exfoliant to buff away dullness, bumps and dead skin cells. Fruit acids brighten and give the complexion a healthy glow while fruit oils soften and moisturize. Again, the smell of this scrub and mask is so invigorating! I love that it exfoliates while nourishing your skin, without you having to sit around with a mask on your face for 20 minutes. I know I am only one minute away from fresh, rejuvinated skin. As a busy mother, that is all the time I have for beauty treatments, so it is perfect!

Besides these great products, alex+von also offers another organic skin care line - Suki, and an environmentally friendly line of children's wall decals - WeeDECOR.

Shop for any and all of these products today! Also, be sure to check out Marie Slayton's website. She is the independent consultant who recommended these products to me, and she is great to work with! On her website, you will find all the latest promotions, beauty tips and more! 

Today, we are offering (1) lucky winner (1) $25 Gift Certificate to alex+von to purchase whatever you would like! Have fun shopping!
