Hey beautiful people. Full-time internship + practicing/rehearsing/traveling for piano duo performance = radio silence, but have I got a treat for you…
Back in May, I passed 100 followers on Bloglovin’ (you can find me here) and I have been receiving some really beautiful emails from readers and brands and vomiting all of my green beauty love in them (like taking breaks from writing school essays to write green beauty essays) and I want to say thank you all so much! Thank you all for following and reading and commenting and sharing in my green beauty experience. It makes it all the more fun to hear what you love, what works for you, and what works better for you.
So as a thank you, I have one of my top green beauty favorites to offer: Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin B Cleansing Oil & Makeup Remover (valued at $38). I was introduced to this via a sample pack (purchased) and immediately purchased full-size…after full-size…after full-size of this. A year and many bottles later, this cleansing oil is still a staple in my routine, and I’ve even gotten my sister hooked on it. You can read my full review from last summer here.
This giveaway is open from Monday, June 23 through Monday, June 30 (midnight PST). U.S. only–sorry international lovelies, will make it up to you. Good luck and go wild!
Disclaimer: I bought this product myself from oneloveorganics.com and have been saving it for a lucky one of you. It’s a brand new, unopened bottle and even has its original bubble wrap with it. Yay! This giveaway is not sponsored by One Love Organics or Elizabeth Dehn–I included their Twitter handles in the giveaway because I think they are great resources to follow. And their Active Moisture line is stellar.
Congratulations on all the well deserved blog lovin'! Organic products have saved my skin and it's great to have so many resources with honest opinions to gauge efficacy before taking the purchase plunge since so many times you have to rely on online shopping.
One Love has been one of my favorites to try. The Vitamin D serum and Chamomile body oil have become staples in my beauty routine, as well as the dry shampoo and gardenia body oil from the summer collection. I have a feeling I am going to get hooked on the limited edition summer products and be super bummed when I cant get them anymore! 🙂
I am a fan of the OCM, but I am struggling to find one that compares to Tatcha's. I try to avoid phenoxyethanol, so Tatcha is out.
My summer beauty essentials are pretty spare. I typically cleanse in the a.m. with a konjac sponge, and then I apply Peter Thomas Roth's Oilless Oil and a moisturizing sunscreen from Prana. I use Lucy Minerals foundation, as well as color from rms beauty.
I've been wanting to try this out! I'm new to the natural beauty world, and this blig has been helpful! Congrats!
Toner, toner, toner…. oh and sunscreen! For some reason lately I've been on a huge toner kick and it's been making a huge difference. Thanks for the chance to win such a lovely product & congrats!
Congratulations! Body oils are my new favorite for summer. Gotta have smooth legs. Thanks for the opportunity to win this amazing cleanser.
I just got a charcoal Konjac sponge! I'm really diggin' it for the hot and somewhat humid weather.
A high factor SPF is my top summer essential. I actually did a blog post about it recently
Oops. Void my entries. Just realised that it's US only
Oops. Such a shame.
Yay I love OLO cleansing oil. I'm almost done with my first bottle and it would be perfect timing to win a 2nd! 🙂
Thank you Sandi! I totally agree with you about organic products–before I was blindly buying products based on how pretty they looked or hype, but now there are much more solid things to base efficacy on, such as ingredients, purity, and so on.
Love that you also love One Love Organics! I also loved the Vitamin D Serum, Gardenia Body Oil, and have recently been enjoying the dry shampoo. I hear you–I'm contemplating buying some backups before the summer collection runs out!
Hi Gina! I also try to avoid phenoxyethanol (a reason why I haven't tried Tatcha). This cleansing oil is pretty awesome if you want to do the OCM without a damp muslin.
I love Konjac sponges and rms beauty! Nice picks! I haven't heard of Prana before, interesting.
I'm so glad this blog has been helpful for you! Welcome to the green beauty world 🙂 What a nice and simple routine you have. I loooove YÜLI.
Thank you Paula! I'm just coming out of my toner kick (multiple bottles of toner leading to slight panic of being able to finish them before expiration) and am restraining myself from going crazy over sunscreen. Good luck!
Thank you Michele! I agree. Smooth legs are a must, especially when it's time for them to come out and play in the summer. Good luck!
I just got a charcoal Konjac sponge a couple weeks too and love it. Definitely perfect for the summer.
I'm with you with the SPF. Would love to read your blog post if you don't mind sharing a link. Sorry about the giveaway being only open to the US–will do international giveaways soon!
Love that you love it too! It's definitely a product that doesn't get old with further use 🙂
I hope you try some soon, if not from me! Though I had an initial clogging experience with OLO (Skin Savior), I've had great success with much of their Active Moisture Line and am also loving bits and bobs of their Summer Collection. Great ingredients, amazing scents, great philosophy.
The big, floppy, brimmed hat–a nice touch!
Good luck Gertrude! Win or no win, I hope you try it soon 🙂
My summer beauty essentials are Devita sunscreen, Heritage rosewater, DIY sugar scrub, Kiss My Face Moisture Shave and a Gillette Venus Sensitive Disposable razor.
Ooh, love rosewater (refreshingly simple and lovely) and idea of a DIY sugar scrub! Nice picks! I haven't used a shave cream for a while–I've recently found that massaging just jojoba oil (a trick I picked up from Pemberley Jones) into my pits/legs before shaving helps give me a close and less painful shave.
I love pratima rose neem sunscreen and yuli cocoon mist. Just love organic beauty. Also love your blog too.
Aww man, I got so excited when I saw the title of the OLO giveaway, then realized it's only for US citizens. Got my hopes up because I've been wanting to try this exact product, and OLO doesn't ship to Singapore! I love Yuli's Panacea elixir for a quick perk-me-ups throughout the day. I rotate that with Heritage Store's Rosewater, because I tend to get a little too trigger happy with spritzing sometimes. Love your blog Jade!
What an awesome giveaway, girl! I loved this when I sampled it! My summer beauty essentials would probably be a good mattifying setting powder and a refreshing face mist. 🙂
OLO is my favorite! Cannot get enough of the skin savior, Vitamin C or lavender body oil. Haven't tried the Vitamin B yet, but it's next on my list 🙂 Fab giveaway!
Awesome giveaway! My summer beauty essentials are a great cleanser and a good SPF!
Summer essentials-a great cleanser and moisturizer- thanks for the giveaway 🙂
Actually looking for a natural replacement for my previous cleanser, so this is a great giveaway! Summer essential is spf 30 or above broad spectrum, mascara and plenty of lip balm.
SO excited to try this!! Top 3 summer beauty essentials are SPF, tinted moisturizer and bright lip color!
A physical based sunscreen for face and body, lip balm and blush with a pop of color
So excited to try this! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂
Those are two of my loves too (and what I'm currently using–psychic)! Thank you for the love, Kelly!
Sorry about that Charm 🙁 Content Beauty in the UK carries some of OLO and ships internationally, but unfortunately they don't carry the ED4OLO line…I totally get trigger happy with toner and when I still had rosewater left, I did the exact same 🙂 Thanks for the love, Charm!
Thank you Mayette! Great picks–those two are def my summer essentials too!
<3 OLO <3 Good luck and I hope you will try it soon 🙂
Thank you Erin! Great essentials–love me a good cleanser and SPF.
Thanks Samantha, good luck! I would agree–a cleanser and moisturizer are always essential 🙂
Great timing–good luck to you! This one is great for removing makeup or even on its own as a do-it-all. Since you're on the lookout for cleansers, here are some I've loved lately: YÜLI Halcyon, Blissoma Fresh Mild Rice Facial Cleanser, OLO Apple a Day, and Odacite Rejuvenating Cleanser.
Good luck to you! This one is sooo good. Great picks!
Nice picks, Kate 🙂
Good luck Ruhimaach 🙂
That's alright 🙂 Good luck with it.

I don't go into much detail about sun cream in it but I might do a more in depth blog post about summer skin soon.
A couple of my summer beauty essentials include boscia purifying cleansing gel and fresh sugar lip treatments.
congratulations dear.I have sooo many summer beauty essentials.The pure ingredients, scents and effectivenessI love all of them so much but I am a huge fan of facial scrubs, without them my skincare routine is insufficient.
I love cleansing oils! Nothing breaks down gross stuff on your face like an oil!
oh, and my summer essentials are most definitely sunscreen! currently Coola matte cucumber.
My summer beauty essentials are definitely water and oil control moisturizer. I tend to get very oily on my t zone!
I hear ya! It feels sooo good to massage away the day with an oil and watch it all just melt!
Me too–ooh, I have heard good things about that one.
Thank you Anusha! Any particular facial scrubs you like most? 🙂 I've been loving exfoliation more and more recently…I find they help keep my skin happy and clear.
Water! Can't forget the water! I get really oily and sweaty too–have you tried mattifying powders? I have one from rms and another from Ilia and quite like them (though for me, it's also a battle of not drying myself out). Mineral powder foundation also helps give me a mattified-ish dewy but not super oily look.
Thank you for hosting the giveaway, lovely!
