Who writes Beautiful Basics?

 My name is Kassie and I’m a chronically ill 28-year-old from a small town in Oregon. I have a passion for all things beauty and green living. I write about natural and organic beauty products as well as DIY beauty recipes and other odds and ends. I'm also an animal lover and believe beauty should be cruelty free. I'm a proud cat mommy and vegetarian.

I’m not an expert or a professional but I have learned a lot about beauty and skin care by experimenting and teaching myself. I like to keep my posts as positive as possible. I love testing out products but I only write about the ones I love. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy!

I also have a blog that chronicles my life living with chronic illness.

Talk About Skin Care - Seventh Generation Boosts + GIVEAWAY! (closed)

Hey Beautiful! In today's post I'm delighted to be able to introduce you to the Seventh Generation Boosts, a healthy and affordable line of natural skin boosting serums. With 6 versions to choose from there is something for everyone, regardless of skin type. I have been using the Soothing Boost for several weeks now and have really fallen in love with it, for good reason. If you're interested in learning more about this product or finding out how you can enter to win a bottle of the Boost of your choice, then keep reading!

My family and I have been long time fans of Seventh Generation and their line of household cleaning products (especially their Free and Clear All Purpose Cleanser, Free and Clear Natural Dish Liquid, and Hand Soap) so when the company reached out to tell me about their new skin care serums and present me with the opportunity to try it I naturally said yes, please!

Step one involved selecting the right formula for me. The company has 6 different Boosts you can choose from, all waterless and made from pure, plant-based ingredients. In these cruelty free skin serums you won't find any parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances or color, or animal ingredients or byproducts.

The 6 varieties are:
Hydrating: Restores Moisture Balance with Jojoba Oil
Soothing: Calms and Relieves with Oat Extract
Clearing: Reduces Impurities with Tea Tree Oil
Firming: Strengthens and Tones with Baobob
Revitalizing: Smooths Fine Lines with Rosehip
Protecting: Defends Against the Elements with Prickly Pear

I selected the Soothing Boost because it sounded super simple (in a good way!) and gentle. The instructions for use say you can add the serum to your regular cleanser and/or moisturizer or use directly on your skin as a treatment, which is my preferred way of using it. I have also used it in conjunction with my nighttime moisturizer and it works well as an added layer of protection and hydration.

I have actually been using it as my daily moisturizer after washing my face in the morning. It absorbs easily and quickly so I don't get shiny or greasy throughout the day. It works well alone or under mineral makeup. It's extremely light but also superbly hydrating and makes a huge difference in my skin. My skin has been so dehydrated and this soothing oil makes my face and neck so much better, I can't even fully describe it! I feel like it hydrates deep down and plumps up my dry skin. It doesn't clog my pores or cause any irritation either!

You can learn more about Seventh Generation Boosts by clicking here, where you can also print out a $3 off coupon. This serum is already affordable so the coupon is an awesome bonus! You can also follow Seventh Generation on Facebook or Twitter

If you're interested in entering to win a bottle of the boost of your choice just use the Rafflecopter form below. It may take a moment or two to load. Also, don't be worried if your comment doesn't show up right away. I can see it! a Rafflecopter giveaway

Firming with Jojoba for me!

I would invent one with acai berries for antioxidants, but the one with oats also sounds great:)

For me I would think either the Soothing or Calming would work wanders. Maybe even the Protecting as I spend a lot of time outdoors. But they all sound fabulous!
