What would a Holiday Round up series be without a review of one of the most amazing skincare brands around?
While just a few years ago, I was amazed every time I stumbled across a natural skincare company with beautiful branding and products that actually worked, the times have definitely changed. There are probably 5+ companies that show up in my FB feed every day now!
While this is truly amazing for the movement of being more careful with what you put on your skin, it can also make it harder to weed through and find products that truly work and are focused on doing good in the world.
And so I am pleased to introduce you to Apple Rose Beauty and the founder, Kristy Alexander. Kristy is a trained and successful engineer who took the experiences from an 11 month service trip around the world and her love of skincare products to the next level by creating her company, Apple Rose Beauty.
The ingredients are natural, certified organic and wildcrafted, and their products focus on providing the most effective solutions in the most healthy way possible, without the harmful effects of harsh chemicals and fillers. They are all the things: certified organic, vegan, animal testing free, made in the USA, hypoallergenic and more!
I am IN LOVE with the Vitamin C Super Serum.
It is so fresh and soft and makes my skin simply glow. I can put it on at night and wake up feeling more refreshed - it’s like diffusing essential oils while you sleep - except on your face!
It’s also a great deal at only $49.95 as my purchase last spring lasted a long time. This is the gift that is perfect for the person in your life who complains that they look tired or that they wish they felt more alive - it works on both levels! Apple Rose also has a Basic Skin Care Kit that is only $10 and would be a perfect stocking stuffer. It includes sample sizes of three of their best products; a great way to try them out before purchasing a full size one.
If there was nothing else to share, I would have still included Apple Rose in this roundup - the clean products that work combined with having met Kristy and getting a sense of her passion for changing the world with her company would be enough.
But there is so much more. Apple Rose comes from the name of two women she met on her travels who were forced into the sex trade due to family circumstances. Carrying that burden into her business, the website explains that every purchase provides at least one hour of meaningful work for a human trafficking survivor. What a beautiful beautiful business plan.
When you purchase from Apple Rose Beauty this holiday season, use the code ChampagneBeauty to save 20% off your order through December 31st. I hope that you will enjoy these products (and the amazing feeling I get inside when I buy them) as much as I do!
