Goddess Garden Organics Review and GIVEAWAY!

Disclaimer:  I received this product for free as part of a review and giveaway opportunity with Bookieboo, LLC.  All opinion in my reviews are honest and ALWAYS my own.

I know "going green" is all the rage these days, but organic bath and body products is an area that is often forgotten.  I could definitely write a whole other post on this topic, but today I want to tell you about Goddess Garden's Daily Lotions.

If you're anything like me, remembering to put on your sunscreen is tough.  We all know how important it is, yet it's a step that most of us forget.  But how many of you forget your daily lotion?  I know I don't.  When your legs look like a scaly mess without it, you don't forget it!  

So when I was sent ORGANIC lotion that combined sunscreen and lotion into one, I was thrilled.  I'll admit, I was skeptical.  I thought there was no way this lotion would leave me smooth and NOT greasy.  But I could not be further from wrong.  This lotion absorbed into my skin almost immediately, without any greasiness!  

I loved the list of ingredients:  There were no random chemicals that we have no clue about.  Goddess Garden does not test on animals, which is very important to me (hello animal lovers).  

I chose the Grapefruit Bergamot scent because it sounded fresh.  The smell was so clean and not perfume-y at all.  The scent is subdued enough that I can throw it on before a run, stay burn-free, and not choke other runners!  Win-Win!  I also received sample packets of the other fragrances, Lavender Mint and Tangerine Lavender, and they are both beautiful scents as well.

Here's what the company has to say:

Goddess Garden, a Boulder-based skincare company, was founded in 2004 by Nova Covington, entrepreneur and mom. As a new mother, Nova was inspired to create organic skincare products initially for her daughter Paige, who was allergic to chemicals in traditional bath products. Motivated to develop safe skincare solutions, Nova launched natural products using pure minerals zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as the active agents for sun protection — the highest organic content of any sunscreen on the market.

In 2009, Goddess Garden launched a line of Organic Sunscreen products that protect and nourish without harsh sunscreen chemicals. This long-lasting SPF 30 sunscreen is made with sheer minerals that reflect 97% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Goddess Garden’s line of organic sun care products is water resistant to 40 minutes, non-greasy, absorbs quickly and nourishes sensitive skin with the highest percentage of organic ingredients available in a sunscreen—up to 94 percent!
Goddess Garden continues to innovate by recently introducing the first organic, chemical-free sunscreen in a continuous spray. Currently, Goddess Garden’s family of sun care products include adult, kids, baby and facial sunscreens.
Goddess Garden was founded with a commitment to product excellence while maintaining a low carbon footprint. The woman-owned company provides safe and effective products using environmentally sustainable business practices. Goddess Garden supports organic farmers, local schools,  and family-friendly organizations.
I've been so impressed with Goddess Garden Organics, that I'm planning on purchasing the Kid's Natural Sunscreen Spray.  While it may seem a little pricier than drug store sunscreens, I believe that we can not put a price tag on children's health and safety!  I'd much rather slather my girls with natural sunscreens than potentially harmful chemicals!
Now here's your chance to win your own Goddess Garden Daily Lotion!  The winner will get to choose between 3 scents:  Grapefruit Bergamot, Lavender Mint, and Tangerine Lavender.  Please, US residents only (I'm sorry!).
