Day 9: 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways - Skin Free: A New Direction in Skin Care $30 Gift Certificate Giveaway!


With the health problems I suffer from, I have sensitive skin. For as long as I can remember, I have suffered from certain skin conditions, that have made it difficult to purchase skin care and beauty products. At an early age, around puberty, that`s when everything started to go in a downward spiral when it comes to my skin. I never had problems with acne, but had dry flaky skin, psoriasis around the hair line, and the worst dandruff (dermatitis). Everything I tried didn`t seem to work, that`s when I finally came across Skin Free!

1st Package
I received 2 nice little package from Skin Free, that was wrapped with cellophane, and tied at the top with pink ribbon. They were quite cute, and would have made for the perfect gift. Inside the first package it included: Skin Free Extra Moisturizing Soap, Skin Free Niaouli Butter Stick, Blue Ridge Gypsy Anti-Bug Spritx, and the Blue Ridge Gypsy Studio Essential Oil Headache Stick. The second package included: Skin Free Extra Moisturizing Soap, Skin Free Niaouli Butter Stick, Skin Free Super Moisture Body Balm and Skin Free Sweet and Smooth Sugar Scrub. Some of these are brand new products, that were just introduced this year!

2nd Package


I have to say I`m impressed. I have finally found relief for my annoying symptoms, without irritating my skin further. The first product I tried was the Headache Stick. I originally didn`t understand how something like this could even work. Well, it does! Think of it like Vicks Vapo-rub... it opens up your sinuses and brings a wonderful tingle to the area that you applied it. It contains two natural oils that help to relieve tension, and stop congestion. All you do is rub it on your temples or across your sinuses, to feel the quick relief. Much better then popping pills.

The Extra Moisturizing Soap is not like any other. It`s rich, creamy lather makes your skin feel fresh. It is gentle enough to even use as a shampoo, and doesn`t leave your hair looking greasy. This is the first soap that I`ve used that doesn`t make me scratch my skin afterwards. There`s no fragrance, color, petroleum, or chemicals in this product... perfect for my sensitive skin. This will be a regular in my home!

The Niaouli Butter Stick is my little secret weapon! It`s something that I toss in my purse for whenever I need it. Just remove the lid, and rub on any area of skin that is dry, itchy or irritated. With this baby, there`s instant relief, and along with the other products, it helps prevent another flare-up.

The Anti-Bug Spritz: this is a light product that doesn`t smell like other bug sprays, and actually leaves your skin feeling soft and refreshed. It has a blend of citrus, essential oils and is in a water base. I`ve used this on my balcony in the evening and it worked. I haven`t tested it out in the woods yet, but I would love to bring it if I go camping.

The Super Moisture Body Balm is one of my favorite products. I use it daily and it helps prevent any crazy psoriasis flare ups. I normally suffer from dry flaky skin, as almost nothing used to work on it. This moisturizer is the best invention. It's made up of 100% butters and natural oils selected for their healing and emollient properties.

You can use our Super Moisture Body Balm anywhere on your body, face, or hands. You will be amazed at how wonderful this balm feels and how quickly it will improve the condition of dry or injured skin.

It is very effective for eczema, psoriasis, cracked and dry feet, hands, elbows or wherever you need an intensive moisturizer. Use all over your body at bedtime to get rid of “alligator” skin. Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and dehydration.


The final item out of both kits is the Sweet and Smooth Sugar Scrub. My first impression of this product, it looks just like honey! Sugar contains natural alpha hydoxy- acids which renew skin and leave it refreshed without the sting of salt. Just take a scoop of this luscious body polish into your hand and massage into wet skin to remove that outer layer of dead skin cells. You won’t believe the new you.

Use it sparingly on wet facial skin to polish and smooth the dead top layer of skin and allow moisture soak in deeply. The new glow will be amazingly healthy and youthful. Use on hands and feet to remove rough layers of callus and cuticle for miraculous manicure or pedicure.

Use on any body area that has rough areas: stretch marks, elbows, dry alligator legs. The results will delight!

All of Skin Free Skincare is affordable, and well worth every penny. I would recommend their products to anyone, not just people with sensitive skin. If you would like to purchase from them, click here to visit their website!




One lucky reader will get a chance to win a gift set including: Everyday Shampoo, Moisture Shampoo, and a Moisture Conditioner from Niche! To qualify you must be a resident of either CA or US!
