I am SO excited to share one of my favorite product lines with you! And I'm even MORE excited to give 3 of my favorite products away to one sweet reader!

Have you heard of Ava Anderson Non-Toxic (AANT)? If you haven't, please allow me to introduce you! And if you have, chances are you already LOVE it.

My best friend Elysia first introduced me to AANT back in February, and I loved not only the 100% toxin- and chemical-free products but the philosophy behind the company: educating our friends, families, and neighbors about the dangers of using personal care products that contain toxic chemicals, and having Ava's incredible chemical-free products as a safe alternative!!

And because I believe strongly in sharing Ava's message, Elysia (my Ava consultant) & I want to GIVE AWAY three of my personal favorites to one of my dear readers - 

Favorite product #1: Body butter

(4 oz container; $18.95 value!)

This is one of the first Ava product that I ordered, and I'm so thankful for it. Not only is it amazing for dry winter skin, it is the ONLY thing that I've found that heals my youngest daughter's eczema flair-ups in a day or less. (I hear Ava's Diaper Cream is also excellent for eczema and psoriasis!). And it's full of healthy goodness instead of awful toxic chemicals.

Favorite product #2: Detangler

(8 oz bottle, $13.95 value!)

My middle daughter has hair that is down to the backs of her knees. And trust me, we've tried almost every name-brand detangler out there - which are full of endocrine-disrupting and potentially cancer-causing chemicals! - and none of them do even half as good a job as Ava's. It works well as a leave-in conditioner on wet or dry hair, too. Our hair is much happier with this fabulous AvaHair product. Bonus use: I've found that it also works well as a lotion on dry skin if I don't have the body butter available!

Favorite product #3: Eye Makeup Remover Pads

(50 count, $14.95 value!)

I do not wear eye makeup, so when this came as part of the FREE 6-piece avaSKIN set ($101.95 value! for FREE, people!) that I earned just for hosting an Ava Hour(!), I was kind of bummed because I thought they'd just sit in my cupboard. However, I found some wonderful uses for them: 1) in-a-pinch face freshener-upper when I'm on the go and don't have time to wash my face. 2) in-a-pinch hand/sweet-little-people face wipes when the girls and I are out and about. I carry these wipes in my purse most of the time. They are alcohol-free so they don't dry out your face or skin, and they pick up all kids of dirt and grime and leave your skin feeling SO soft and clean! So whether you're using them to remove eye shadow at the end of your day or on the run as a quick cleanser, you'll be glad to have them on hand.

One dear reader will WIN the 4-oz Body Butter,
the 8-oz Detangler, AND the 50-count Eye Makeup Remover Pads!
(a $47.85 value!)

The drawing will be on
Friday December 5th, 2014 at 10:00PM EST.

    1. Thanks, Melissa! That's FOUR chances for you to win - and you can earn one entry each day that you share this on social media :)

  2. I don't know why I haven't subscribed to your blog before rather than coming here to check it! Also, I would try the hair styling cream. It's hard to find a good one that doesn't smell toxic & this one looks like it would fit the bill.

    1. Thanks, Katie!! That's two entries so far :) If you share this on social media, let me know. You will LOVE any of the products - most are either aloe- or coconut-oil based (the shampoo and conditioner are wonderful, too)!
