Giveaway #4: True Botanicals

Over the last couple of years I’ve become more and more in tune with different natural, organic beauty lines that are out there. Becoming a mom made me think twice about what I was putting on my skin and near my baby so I’ve slowly but surely replaced old products with new ones containing natural ingredients. Lucky for us, there are some really amazing beauty brands producing products that work just as well.

Enter True Botanicals. The first time I discovered this brand was in Napa at the Solage Calistoga Spa. It was a hot week and my skin was dry and irritated. I started sampling some of the products and was completely obsessed with the subtle botanical scent everything had. I took home the Pure Radiance Renew Face Oil—which by the way totally transformed my skin on our trip—and have been adding more True Botanicals products to my daily regimen since.

I tell all my closest girlfriends about this line and can’t say enough about the quality, results and scents so I knew I had to share it with all of you. Today we’re giving away a $500 gift card to True Botanicals so you can try it out for yourself. To enter follow @couldihavethat and @truebotanicals on instagram and leave a comment on this blog post with the products your excited to try. Open to readers worldwide, giveaway ends 5/17.
Since I’ve been using the line for a year now I thought I would share some of my favorites from the product line. Most recently I started using the brand spanking new Pre Cleanse Oil that you rub into dry skin and it easily removes makeup while prepping your pores for your cleanser. I follow up with the Hydrating Cleanser Renew (with added Polishing Grains at night) and the combo leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean, fresh and baby soft. While my skin is still slightly damp I spritz on the Nutrient Mist for extra hydration and prep for my serum—it’s also great throughout the day on top of makeup.
After cleansing I use the Pure Radiance Oil Renew if I’m feeling extra dry followed by the Cellular Repair Serum Renew. At night I mix in the Vitamin C Booster and in the morning I top with Everyday Sheer Coverage SPF 20 (in medium tint), which is one of my all-time favorite products. I’m crazy about the smell but overall it’s the best everyday tinted sunscreen I’ve ever tried and normally my skin is über sensitive to sunscreens. This past winter I started using the Deep Hydrating Body Oil before hopping in my steamy shower and after using a dry brush. It kept my skin soft and hydrated through the cold months and I became addicted to calming scent of the oil. Now that we’re heading into summer I’ve been using it on my limbs before toweling off for extra hydration before lotion—the Nourishing Lotion is been a favorite lately.

  9. This could not have come up at a better time! After a recent move halfway across the country, my skin has been all kinds of irritated (adjusting to a new environment is hard!). I’ve been searching high and low for the
    RIGHT skin care line/regimen. It’s time to change the game, since what I’ve been doing isn’t working in my new environment! My main issues since I’ve moved are dryness and bits of acne…and I’m still not about the fine lines and little wrinkles that started to appear these past couple of last years! Regardless, the quiz on the True Botanicals website is AH-Mazing – and got me super excited about the Clear collection (definitely need to get my hands on the Pure Radiance Oil, Nutrient Toner and Hydrating Cleanser). Can’t wait to try it!

  20. I would love to win this giveaway! I have struggled for years with skin that is easily irritated and breaks out from most products.

If this could be the skin care line that helps me I would be so grateful and a customer for life!

  33. I would love to try the DEEP REPAIR EYE SERUM, the skin around my eyes shows my age the most. Following both on instagram @rusthawk1.

  34. I would love to try any of the serums or the shampoo/conditioner! It’s really hard to find good hair products that aren’t full of nasty ingredients.

  35. These sound so good. I would love to try the Trial Kit Essentials Clear along with antiaging products. They have so many great sounding products yet not an overwhelming amount that seems redundant. I’m following on ig as

  36. I really want to try the Nutrient Mist. I have very dry skin and I think this would be so refreshing, especially in the summer. It would be great to add another layer of moisture.

  37. I would be excited to try many of their products. But especially the Cellular Repair Serum. Sounds like it would help with my aging skin.

  38. I’m interested with the Pure Radiance Oil and the Cellular Repair Serum. Looking for my holy grail skin care products and True Botanicals seems like a great brand!

  39. Im really excited to try all the products. The cell renewal serum and the pre cleanse oil were the ones that really caught my eye.

  41. I want to try the nutrient mist and sheer coverage spf 20 — always looking for ways to protect my skin that don’t feel greasy.

  42. Wow, the True Botanical products look amazing, and I’m not just saying that for an entry. 😉 Here are several I’d be excited about trying!
    I want to try the hydrating cleanser, clear, + the cellular repair serum, clear.

    I also want to try the Everyday Sheer Coverage SPF 20 – it appears to be a mineral sunscreen as opposed to chemical – huge plus for me because chemical sunscreens break me out horribly within a few hours. However, all but one of the mineral sunscreens I’ve tried so far dry my skin out. The ingredients in this one look promising!

  43. I wanna try the whole line, but right now the Pre-cleanse oil, the Hydrating Cleanse Renew and the Vitamin C Booster appeal to me. Good to hear that this line smells good because so many natural products do not and that is definitely a turn-off.

  44. I’d love to try the Resurfacing Moisture Mask and Deep Repair Eye Serum. Following both on Instagram as @amyorvin

  45. I am excited to try so many products in the True Botanicals range – they sound beautiful and I haven’t tried any before. With cooler weather here in Australia, and having a dry skin condition (since birth), I need to take extra care to nourish my skin – I would really love to try the Deep Hydrating Body Oil – something I could nourish my skin with straight out of the shower or bath; the Nutrient Mist – I love a mist to carry with me throughout the day to keep my face and neck hydrated; the Hydrating Cleanse – to cleanse and hydrate my skin…sounds divine!

  46. I’m going to order the Everyday Sheer Coverage SPF 20 and saw you got medium. Does it run really light? We have similar skin tones but I was thinking I would be light. Thanks for the help. So excited to try the new product!
