Good For You Girls Tween & Teen Skincare Giveaway & Discount

As your daughter approaches her tween/teen years, you may find yourself wanting to discuss with her the proper ways to care for her skin. It is not only important to explain to them what they should be doing, like washing and moisturizing, but it is so important to give them the proper tools to do so. You certainly don't want your sweet girl to put products containing toxic chemicals on her skin and unfortunately, it can be hard to find natural alternatives. This is where Good For You Girls comes in!

Good For You Girls is a line of all natural skincare for tween and teen girls. Her first skin care should be safe and natural. Good For You Girls offers premium skincare designed specifically for the unique needs of girls age 9-15. The company was started by friends Kim and Grace who were looking for natural skincare products for their young daughters. Since they did not have any luck finding what they needed, they decided to create their own!

Philosophy
At Good For You Girls™, we believe beautiful skin is natural skin. Chemicals found in standard skincare products enter our bodies through the skin. These chemicals are not only irritating to many individuals, but also over time have proved to be harmful. We believe health should never be sacrificed for beauty. We also believe good habits start at a young age. It is our responsibility to educate our children to the dangers of chemicals in the world and in the products they use. At Good For You Girls™, we are committed to making truly effective skincare without harmful or questionable ingredients. Our products contain good-for-your-skin ingredients that are both beneficial and beautifying. By creating Good For You Girls™ skincare, we hope to give girls the confidence to face the world, knowing how truly beautiful they are on the inside and the outside.

In addition to using all natural ingredients, they also make sure to use recyclable packaging and all products are 100% Vegan. The Good For You Girls product line consists of 4 items, all 4 oz each:

Gel Cleanser: soap-free, gel cleanser gently washes away daily dirt and grime without stripping or irritating skin.

Blemish Wash: helps deep clean pores and fight bacteria naturally.

Purifying Toner: Alcohol free toner combines witch hazel, organic aloe vera gel and antimicrobial meadowsweet extract to deep clean pores while soothing organic botanicals like chamomile and calendula help balance skins delicate pH.

Moisturizer: lightweight facial moisturizer absorbs instantly to help protect against moisture loss without clogging pores.

The best way to get started, I think, is to try out the Complete Skin Care Kit. This kit contains 2oz bottles of three of the items mentioned above: the Gel Cleanser, Toner and Moisturizer. "Our simple, three-step process of cleansing, toning and moisturizing will effectively clean skin of impurities, balance pH, and help to protect from the elements leaving only clean, luminous, naturally beautiful skin. These three products are designed to compliment each other and work together harmoniously." The items in this kit should last approximately 4 months.

  73. Bismuth is put in cosmetics because it gives a sheen to the face, is soft to the touch, and is extremely inexpensive. A byproduct of lead and copper refining, bismuth oxychloride is a heavy metal. Heavy metals have been linked to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease.

    This would make a great gift for any one of my coworkers.
