We’ve had such a crazy July, I’m looking forward to a bit slower pace in August. After all, this is the last month I have Finn all to myself before we ship him off to school two mornings a week!

Now for a fun GIVEAWAY from Michael Todd True Organics. As I’ve shared in the past, I need to be careful about what I put on my skin. I skip anything with parabens and dyes as my skin then screams some nasty, nasty words at me. Words that would make you blush and gasp and cover your ears. :(  Thankfully, we have options, and options are good! :)

Chemists and doctors at Michael Todd studied the topical effects of food with a goal of complete nutrition for the skin.  They used as many organics as possible without compromising  performance and did not add water or unhealthy chemicals.   Stars such as Carmen Electra, Jillian Michaels, Tori Spelling, Lisa Vanderpump, and RHONYC star Sonja Morgan are all fans of Michael Todd True Organics. Michael Todd put together a great video about why to use organic and quality products on your body.

One lucky winner will receive three products from those listed below:

Pumpkin Mask Nutrient-Rich Facial Mask
Peppermint Wake Up Wash
Eye-O-Sonic Ultrasonic Ionic Serum Infuser
Liposome Antioxidant Moisturizer
Pink Grapefruit Lotion
Charcoal Detox Cleanser
Avocado Mango Mask
Jojoba Charcoal Scrub
Knu Anti-aging Face Lift Serum

The motto at Michael Todd is: “You’ll love what’s in it. You’ll love even more what’s not.” All Michael Todd True Organics are formulated without potentially harmful parabens, sulfates, artificial coloring, synthetic dyes, mineral oil, phthalates or triclosan.
