Grateful Body - Review and Giveaway CLOSED

Our Mission Since 1998, Grateful Body's mission has been to bring you 100% natural skin care that is nourishing, effective and luxurious while supporting the health of your skin, your body, and your planet. Our Dream Why not dream big? We dream of the day when all skin care products improve the long-term health of the skin as well as its immediate appearance; the day when the body care industry supports organic agriculture instead of the chemical industry. We dream of people everywhere being nurtured every day by coming "face-to-face with nature" thanks to healthy botanical body care. Our Motivation: Health AND Beauty We want to contribute to the health as well as the beauty of humanity. Grateful Body is a family business that began for very personal reasons. (from website)

Grateful Body products are 100% Natural and chemical free. They're certified cruelty free, and do not use animal testing. All products are certified vegan, and they use and protect native medicinal plants. They offer a complete line of skin care products in two lines, custom and classic. Their classic line is designed to work with a variety of skin, whether dry or oily, rosacea or blemish prone. The custom line puts you in charge of the formulation - choose from the nourishing Pure & Simple Bases and powerful Therapeutic Boosters to create your own targeted skin solutions.

I had the chance to try three products from their classic line, and absolutely love them all! I love how they feel on my skin, how they each have a very light, wonderful scent, and the packaging is amazing - each glass bottle comes in a cardboard tube with a beautiful label. The bottles are so pretty I've left them out on the window sill in the bathroom!


Deep
Cleanse - Deeply cleanses while helping to balance oily and combination skin. Excellent for hard-to-remove makeup. This one is perfect for my combination skin as it eliminates oil without over drying. It's a light, non greasy formula that contains Quillaja Extract (strength to perfectly cleanse oily skin without the use of detergents and soaps), Oat Straw (giving plenty of beneficial nourishment to help keep the skin healthy and glowing), and Yucca Root (cleansing properties and its curative power for a variety of skin conditions). My face feels wonderfully clean, without that tight feeling I get from some cleansers and just glows after washing!

Toner - Normal to Oily Skin - Designed for normal to oily skin and combination skin. Skin cells drink up this nourishing herbal infusion and utilize the nutrients to help regulate oil and minimize the appearance of enlarged pores while keeping skin feeling fresh and clean day or night. It smells fantastic, and feels even better on my face. This toner contains Echinacea (superior healer and immune-boosting herb that is excellent for daily use on the skin), Lemon Grass (refreshingly astringent and revitalizes skin while uplifting the spirit) and Green Tea (prevents excessive free radical formation and keeps skin calm and protected).

Oily Skin Moisturizer - Moisturizer for Oily Skin is weightless, absorbs quickly, and keeps pores clear for a smooth, balanced complexion. Contains Horse Tail (delivers trace minerals and silica to the skin for a strong resilient complexion), Milk Thistle (a good source of vitamin E and an excellent detoxifier to carry away impurities and toxins) and Sage Triloba Extract (naturally antiseptic and oil-balancing to keep skin feeling clean throughout the day). I only have to use a tiny bit, as a little goes a surprisingly long ways. This is light, non-greasy and also smells fantastic :) I love that the moisture lasts for hours, and doesn't have to be reapplied constantly.
