Moody Sisters Skincare {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Here we are at the very last day of August, and I can’t wait to welcome September!  I love the fall season, we’ve got two birthdays in our little family to celebrate (not to mention a literal BIRTH DAY that will occur this year!), I love returning to routine and schedules, and I’m looking forward to having family visit.  One of the most difficult parts of this month, though, is the change in season, and I remember that last year’s September was especially rough on my skin since we move from hot and humid to cooler and dry.

Moody Sisters Skincare offers lots of unique skincare products made organically in Central Washington (where my husband and I lived for two years!)

moody

It all started with two sisters, 10-years apart in age, who grew up in Central Washington and settled in a small town called Cashmere, WA with their families. The two were quite different in almost all aspects of life, but they shared one common interest; finding organic skincare remedies.

Older sister Jess had resigned herself to a life of acne and rosacea, deciding it would be better to live as a hermit than to pay such exorbitant prices for skincare.  Younger sister Whitney had worked as a skincare consultant for five years, but still found few products that wouldn’t flare up her eczema or cause a severe allergic reaction.  After hundreds of dollars spent on doctor’s visits and harsh chemicals that failed to calm their skin woes, the sisters had had enough!  They turned to nature for their remedy.

Thus Moody Sisters Skincare was born. For months the sisters toiled over their stoves and sinks perfecting products that would help their moody skin.  As they developed and tested their lotions, toners and deodorants they suddenly realized that not only did they enjoy these products, but others would too. And the sisters were delighted to realize that since the products were completely chemical and paraben free, they were also safe for their young daughters.  Whatever mood your skin is in the Moody Sisters have you covered. The products range from sensitive skin cleansers and moisturizers to blemish and oil control products, from luxurious lip balms to aluminum-free deodorants and scrubs. Each product is carefully handmade to rejuvenate and brighten skin the way nature intended.

Moody Sisters Skincare is 100% natural, affordable {killer} skincare for the whole family.  Each product is handmade by Jess and Whitney in their kitchen and packaged with love. 

Natural Vegan Deodorant Bundle — I can honestly say that I didn’t even consider there would be alternatives to “regular” deodorants that can be found in the grocery store.  These options would be great for the changing seasons, and I imagine that the powder deodorant would be perfect for humid summer days.

Organic Bug Repellant — Our family doesn’t generally have many problems with bug bites, but my two-year-old has about eight bites on each of his feet from playing outside over the past two days — he’s been miserable!  Using bug repellant with such young children can be bothersome, but these organic blends would be a great alternative.

Bamboo Baby Wipes & Organic Solution — I think I’ve only found maybe one brand of wipes that I’m happy to use, and I’m not sure that they’re as soft as I’d like, especially when rashes and bumps make their debut after long, humid summer days.  These bamboo baby wipes sound soft but sturdy, and the organic solution seems like it would do more than just clean.

Natural Eye Makeup Remover — I received a bottle of this natural eye makeup remover just in the nick of time!  I ran out of my favorite eye makeup remover and was happy to try something new since I’ve been using waterproof mascara and eyeliner to keep my makeup from running thanks to sweat and playing outside.  This eye makeup remover has taken everything off easily and leaves my eyes with a light moisturizer and a subtle scent.

Organic Hydrating Facial Oil  — My skin is usually really dry and would benefit greatly from this product, but pregnancy and humid North Carolina summer weather has kept my skin overly hydrated.  :(  I’ve set this Hydrating Facial Oil aside to use in my post-partum weeks/months and especially during the winter weather we’ll be spending in the dry Utah desert.

As stated in my bio, I am a thrift-store shopaholic.  I love the hunt for fabric, buttons, trim, lace, etc.  I’ve been known to attack the frumpiest of dresses for the fabric, rip out the zipper, and sew up something totally new.  I’m not afraid to get personal with any pre-loved outfit, except for one that has pit stains or deodorant remains.  Nasty.  I HATE DEODORANT STAINS!  I hate touching them, seeing them, and especially washing them out of my favorite clothes.

When I had the opportunity to review Truly’s All Natural Deodorant, I thought, “All-natural: yesssssss” (said in a dramatic sigh as I throw my head back).

When I opened the container and before I read the ingredient list, I thought, ‘This reminds me a lot of coconut oil, actually, like a really thick Crisco’.  Go figure, the ingredients are: Organic Coconut Oil, Powdered Sugar (sugar, cornstarch), Baking soda, Beeswax.  That’s it!

Yes, that’s exactly what I thought too!  Now don’t be afraid of deodorant in a round container instead of a stick.  You use it like a cream, and though you do have to touch it to put it on, I really love being able to control exactly how much I use and place it where I want it.  I seem to always smear the deo on my clothes as I’m trying to reach my armpit, or fit a sweater over my head.  And again, I HATE WHITE DEODORANT STAINS!  Yuck!  So this set-up is great.

This stuff is great for sensitive skin, and you don’t have to worry about odd skin reactions to harsh ingredients.  And yes, if you’re wondering, it smells just like coconut oil!  Fairly tropical, pleasant, and effective smelling.  I also am a huge fan of this product being strictly a deodorant without the anti-persperant, because I’ve found it is the harsh chemicals and the acidity of the antiperspirant that makes clothes change color–you know, the yellowing in the armpits of your favorite white sweater.  This is exactly how I like it.

So does it work?  Truly!  Haha.  I put it on at the beginning of a crazy busy day, and I felt clean and fresh all day.  I didn’t notice any grossness after hoisting kids, hauling groceries, housework, or even after an intense phone call that would usually get my pits working hard.  Is this post becoming a bit too personal?  I feel like this deodorant is 100% effective, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it is packaged in cream-like tub with a vintage label.  I will be using nothing but this until I’ve scraped out every ounce.
Everything comes from a home-based business in Delaware and this is their first year selling their products in an online shop!  I would love to see this product go huge!  Tell your friends about it the next time a ‘sweaty’ conversation comes up, and go purchase some for yourself!  One container for $7.99 is going to go far!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
