Astrida Naturals {Giveaway} – CLOSED

My little sister is in college, and that is so weird!!  Over the last month, I have really loved reading her facebook status’ and hearing about all the familiar misadventures of the freshman dorms, auditions and performances, that gosh-awful Nutrition class taught by the same professor I had, and all of the excitement that comes from living on your own and making huge decisions.  I wanted to get her something useful that she could use every day with a little boost of positive and encouragement!  I came across a make-your-own-lotion product from Astrida Naturals, and I knew this would be perfect!

So as I mentioned, Astrida Naturals has two really cool products where you get to create your own custom face mask or custom body lotion.  You get to choose from all sorts of options like “lightweight” or “very emolient”, and then add a rejuvenating, moisturizing, or soothing boost.  There are five scents to choose from, and you can even make a custom label from the front!


Here’s what I created for Sister-Lister:

And here’s what she had to say about it:

Having lived in humidity my whole life, I’m used to constant moisture in the air to keep my skin from cracking and scaling. However, college adventures bring me to a dry desert where lotion is much-needed.  As a child I had the bad habit of chewing my nails. To this day I pay for what I did to my fingers with hang-nails and dried nail beds.  I am constantly applying lotion to keep my skin from drying out.

That’s where Astrida Naturals lotion comes into play.  This lotion is a wonderful blend of all natural ingredients that soothes skin and brings it to a new, fresh feel.  I was able to create my very own creation.  I love summer strawberries, fresh pineapples, and sweet lemonade.  My body lotion was customized with rejuvenating flower extract boost and lemon verbena scent.  Any time I apply the lotion the wonderful lemon aroma graces my senses with the smell of a sweet lemon bar.  I’m a definite fan.

In order for this wonderful smooth feel and scent, only a little squirt is needed.  This 8 fluid ounce bottle will surely last me all throughout my time in college.  I can’t wait to use it up! What a great product!

closeI really got a kick out of the label I created for her 🙂  Wishing you all the success you deserve in college, Janae!

One of you lucky ducks is going to get to create their own custom lotion!  Customized to your preferences in texture, results, and scent!

    I would choose a lightweight base with a Rejuvenating Boost–I sure need that with 2 young kids! I would then add the Lemon Verbena scent. This sounds like such a fun product and would make a great gift. I’ll have to remember this one for the future.

  2. Raelyn Anderson says:

    I would choose lighweight base with the Rejuvenating Boost with the sandalwood scent, sounds like a great idea for lotions

  5. I’ve never heard of custom lotion- such a neat idea! I’d create a very emollient one with Soothing Boost and a Bay Rum smell. Perfect for fall. 🙂

  6. I would create an unscented, very emollient lotion with a rejuvenating boost. The custom lotion feature is such a great idea!
