Nature's Gate - Review and Giveaway-CLOSED

Nature's Gate was founded over 30 years ago using nature as their inspiration and guide. Their founders hand collected rainwater, blended it with natural herbs from their herb shop, and created the very first Rainwater Shampoo. Nature's Gate is Giving Back with Water by partnering with WaterAid America to support the use of rainwater to help families and children in Asia and Africa have long term access to safe, clean water.

All Nature’s Gate products are developed with natural botanicals well-known for their amazing benefits. Furthermore, we are committed to utilizing the latest advances in modern technology to deliver maximum benefits. The incorporation of certified organic ingredients into the Nature’s Gate Organics and Advanced Care lines take natural a step further - a step closer to nature. Organic is the healthiest option for farming and produce. It helps protect and preserve the environment and its natural balance. (from Nature's Gate website).

Nature's Gate carries a complete line of personal care products, all of which are eco friendly and cruelty free. Products are packaged in recyclable containers and/or made out of recycled materials. I love that Nature's Gate is a green company that carries amazing products at affordable prices!

I had the chance to try three of their products:

1. Chamomile & Lemon Verbena Travel Gift Set (Nourish Dry Hair and Skin), which includes shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion in the Chamomile & Lemon Verbena scent in convenient travel size (2 oz /ea). I love this set! It has a crisp, clean scent and lathers beautifully. The shampoo left my hair squeaky clean without drying, and the conditioner worked wonders on my dry winter frizzies. The lotion was light, not greasy at all.

2. Skin Therapy Lotion for Dry, Chapped, Cracked Skin. This lotion is enriched with natural, restorative ingredients that help relieve and nurture dry, chapped, cracked skin. Aloe Vera and Calendula, known for their skin-soothing properties, are blended with the benefits of Tea Tree and Golden Seal to help smooth and soften. This moisture-rich formula is ideal to help ease dry, irritated skin. This one is super moisturizing, and soothing. I also like the light scent. Iowa winters are super cold and dry, and my hands crack and bleed within a week of it's settling in. This lotion delivered a lot of moisture, and didn't sting like a lot of them do when my hands are so raw.

3. Cucumber & Mint Body Wash. Organic Cucumber and Peppermint Extracts invigorate and balance skin while Organic Marshmallow and Aloe provide moisturizing benefits. Cucumber Mint is one of my favorite body wash scents, but I have to admit I picked this one because I was curious about the Organic Marshmallow ingredient :) This body wash lathers nicely, and smells fantastic! Computers really need a scratch and sniff option!

Nature's Gate site is easy to shop - you can search by what you need (hair care, deoderant, etc.) or by Product Line (Nature's Gate Classics, Natural Results Acne Treatment, etc.).

  6. All the Nature's Gate's products sound great, but I'd also love to try Nature's Gate Organics Advanced Care line. I love good moisterizers and find I'm allergic to many with perfumes. I'd love to win and give these products a try.
