Featured Sponsor Post -- Nahla Giveaway

Ever since posting about my beauty routine earlier this year, I've been in the process of reevaluating the things I use on my skin each day and have felt compelled to try and replace some of my conventional mainstays with organic alternatives. This is something I've been really passionate about (more on that later), so I'm excited to have the organic beauty line Nahla as a Simple Lovely sponsor.

Founded in 2001 by Santa Cruz native, Nicole Maust, Nahla products are handmade in small batches with artisanal processes that take weeks to complete. Using the purest, organic ingredients sourced from small farms and cooperatives, Nahla products are always 100% free of parabens, phthalates, synthetics and petrochemicals.

And, they're offering up a little "pick your pair" giveaway for one of my readers... Just visit the Nahala site and leave a comment by Wednesday, October 5th at midnight CST about the two products you'd most like to try. I'll announce a winner next Thursday, October 6th.

Good luck!

This is so in line with what I have been thinking about lately! We're trying to be mindful about what we put in our bodies at our house, so it makes a lot of sense to do the same with what goes on our bodies too.

The Luna Undereye Dream Cream and the Forest Mint Gentle Foaming Milk sound wonderful.

Kara said...

I've heard about Nahla and have been dying to try them! But with a growing 17 month old girl, spending money on Mama has fallen by the wayside lately. I get the feeling that aside from being lovely products, they smell divine....

Mary said...

Why, sure! I'm always on the lookout for an eye cream that works well without costing a fortune - I'd love to try theirs. I'd probably also try one of the masks - that honey one sounds lovely. Thanks!

labucher said...

I'd love to try the Oma Face Serum and Pacific Seaweed Purify Mask. They all look great!

Feisty said...

I think the Wild Lime Smoothing Hair Repair and Vanilla Bean Rejuvenating Cleanser both sound AMAZING.

Kelly and Kelly said...

I'm noticing lines under my eyes. I'm not sure if it's because I've hit my thirties or that I'm just exhausted from three girlies under the age of 5. So I would love to try the Undereye dream cream.

And with winter coming and the snow I would love something hydrating for my body and it would work in my hot baths - flowering quince bath + body oil.

thanks for letting me see this new (to me) line!

Hanna said...

Clary Sage Calming Mask and Neroli Petal Perfecting Nectar sound nice.

Torrie said...

So many lovely products to choose from!

Here are a couple that I'd love to try...

1) Oma Face Serum No. 2
2) Undereye Dream Cream

Thank for introducing this line to us!

Ana Degenaar said...

I am putting my hopes in the good karma that life has been owing me for 6 years into this. Crossing fingers, toes, legs, arms and everything else "crossable". I love the Calendula Sensitive Healing Cream and cleanse PM. Thank you for the chance! xo

stephanie duncan said...

Obsessed with all natural beauty products! Can't wait to hear about what you use and love......it can be so hard to make the switch over and find products that work as well as the toxic stuff we are used to!
the forest mint gentle foaming milk cleanser and the primrose calming face serum sound pretty amazing!
fingers crossed!

Sara said...

As a devoted organic beauty product junkie, I am excited to try a new line, especially one that is local to me! I love California but my sensitive, 30's skin has a love/hate relationship with Los Angeles. I'd love to try the Oma Serum No. 1 and the Geranium Sap Cleanser....oooh, what about the Luna Undereye Dream Cream...Thanks for always sharing the best of the best!

coachwife6 said...

Oh, the firming face drops for sure. And the serum.

Jessica said...

I switched to "natural" products years ago but recently found out that some of them still contain nasty ingredients. So now I'm switching things up again! So many of the Nahla products look amazing but I'm especially interested in the Brown Sugar Body Polish and the Camellia Antioxidant Facial Steam!

Whimsy Being said...

There are so many I'd love to try! After careful consideration, i've narrowed it down to Pacific Seaweed Purify Mask and Forest Mint Gentle Foaming Milk.

Thank you for the chance to win! :)

What a great giveaway! I have been using Nahla products since 2006 and it has been a mainstay in my skin care regimen ever since. I would love the Geranium Sap Cleanser and Oma Face Serum 1.
