Nicolle and Alexandra have both reviewed Zweena, and funny enough, though their reviews ran three years apart, both have titles that proclaim Zweena a “winter must-have”. Coincidence? Synchronicity? The beauty of it is that they were talking about different products from the same line. Alexandra loved the Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum and Nicolle thanked her lucky stars for the Argan Rose Lustrous Hair Elixir and Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum. Check out their reviews here and here for the juicy details. Then try Zweena for yourself and give winter dryness a kick in the booty. We have an awesome Friday Deal to give you a little boost.
Zweena is giving NMDL readers 20% off individual products (not applicable to gift sets) through this Sunday night, February 1. Just use the code NMDL20 at check out! Zweena offers free shipping on orders over $100. That’s one rosy deal, right?
In addition to argan oil that is EcoCert organic, Zweena blends their serums with a very special Moroccan Rose Oil from the Dades Valley, as well as a host of other skin pampering botanical oils like fair-trade Marula, Mongongo, Kalahari Melon Seed, and organic Baobab oil from cooperatives in Africa.
Zweena means “beautiful” in Morocco, a country that has a very special place in the founder Jayme Barrett’s life. On a trip to visit a friend in Morocco, Jayme met and fell in love with the man who would become her husband and introduce her to his country’s gorgeous argan oil. They married, were inspired to start a business that supports a Berber women’s argan cooperative, and the rest is natural skincare loving history. How sweet is that for a love story?
With all the pink and rose vibes behind Zweena, wouldn’t this make a lovely gift for your Valentine or from your Valentine to you?
As promised, we have a special Friday Deal with KYPRIS! If you didn’t catch Rebecca’s review of KYPRIS’ lovely products yesterday, she gives you all the reason in the world to check out this luxurious skincare line. So here’s the deal…
When you purchase a Beauty Elixir from KYPRIS or from Citrine Natural Beauty you’ll receive deluxe samples of each of KYPRIS’ serums — the Moonlight Catalyst, the Clearing Serum, and the Antioxidant Dew. The deal is good through this Sunday, January 25th. No code necessary! Just make your purchase at KYPRIS or Citrine Natural Beauty and you’ll automatically receive these deluxe goodies with your order while supplies last.
Not sure what Beauty Elixir would benefit your skin? Take this fun quiz to discover your KYPRIS ritual. With ingredients that are 100% natural and nature-derived from plants that are wildcrafted or organic, KYPRIS boasts some serious phytonutrient power. Sustainability is core to their mission, too, and they source ingredients accordingly. We love that.
You’ll remember the lovely natural beauty retailer Citrine Natural Beauty from some of our past Friday Deals. Citrine and KYPRIS are both bringing you this Friday Deal, so if you need to pick up a few items in addition to your Beauty Elixir, you can shop with Citrine and still get this promotion!
Are you into the KYPRIS Beauty Elixirs? How about the serums? We want to hear about it!
This Friday Deal has been in the works since the summertime and the wait has been long. Well worth it though, because in addition to bringing you an excellent deal, we have additional good news to share. R.L. Linden & Co. is releasing their seasonal Yuletide Box today along with their new perfume collection! Happy dance! Before we get into the new goodies, here’s what you need to know to get this Friday Deal…
R.L. Linden & Co. is giving No More Dirty Looks readers 15% off plus free shipping in the US! Just use the code NMDL15! at checkout. The promotion lasts until the end of this Monday 12/8.
The ladies behind R.L. Linden & Co. have a gift for creating scent. You can pretty much wear the Close To Me Deodorant as a perfume, and the Thousand Petal Beautifying Mist offers as much for the senses as it does for the skin. As for the real perfumes, Ironwood #1 already has a NMDL following. Rebecca wrote about it in her Palo Santo post. We also got a sneak peak of Ritual #2 in the gorgeous R.L. Linden Autumn Box. Now there are 7 perfumes available. Each one is a tribute to a Denver-based artisan business — kindred spirits, if you will. R.L. Linden has even created a gift set of all 7 perfumes that includes directions for a Sensory Tour of Denver. How cool is that? Say hello to the new perfume collection:
- Ironwood #1 – A hypnotic and woody sacred anointing oil with notes of copal resin, frankincense tears and palo santo sticks; inspired by Ironwood Collection.
- Ritual #2 – A sexy and warm gourmand scent with notes of cacao nibs, bitter almond shells, spiced cardamom and aged cognac; inspired by Ritual Chocolate.
- Dram #3 – A native woodland scent with notes of fresh juniper berries, foraged rose hips, wild sage bitters and evergreen needles; inspired by Dram Apothecary.
- Beet & Yarrow #4 – A Victorian floral scent with notes of sweet violets, tuberose, fresh cut stems, broken twigs and muddled green leaves; inspired by Beet & Yarrow.
- R.L. Linden & Co #5 – A feminine, sweet rose scent with notes of antique roses, pink peppercorns, vanilla bourbon and pink grapefruit peels; inspired by the aromas created when we blend at the R.L.Linden & Co studio.
- Winter Session #6 – A rich and dignified scent with notes of cold pressed coffee, tanned leather, pipe tobacco and cedar pencils; inspired by Winter Session.
- Western Daughters #7 – A lush grassy scent with notes of freshly mown hay, cottonwood tree buds, sun-warmed prairie wildflowers and sweetgrass; inspired by Western Daughters.
Also not to be missed — the Limited Edition Seasonal Yuletide Box ($48). It’s here just in time for Yuletide, and hop on it because these seasonal boxes tend to sell out quickly. The Yuletide Box includes these special edition products all handmade by R.L. Linden: Lavender + Frankincense Moisture Milk, Yuletide Incense, Healing Mulling Spices, and Sick & Tired (of being sick and tired) Soothing Sinus Salve. Doesn’t that sound perfect for this time of year?
P.S. If you’re not in the US, you can still get this promotion and shipping charges will be half the normal rate. Woot!
Laurel Whole Plant Organics won our hearts this last year with their gorgeous oil blends and balms. Laurel, the woman behind the line, was inspired by her results with natural medicine to go back to school to study herbs. Laurel Whole Plant Organics was born as a result. The brand is driven by the belief that plants are the strongest anti-aging and healing tools we have, and the purer and more unaltered the plant, the more powerful the results. Laurel believes that flower and herb-based skincare from biodynamic, raw, unrefined whole plant ingredients is the secret to glowing, healthy skin. We agree! If you haven’t tried Laurel Whole Plant Organics, let’s give you a little incentive…
Laurel Whole Plant Organics is giving No More Dirty Looks readers 15% off any purchase. Just use the promotion code NMDL15 at checkout. Laurel is offering a free gift set — an artisan, handcrafted mask bowl and mask brush made from reforested materials — for anyone who spends $200+. The promotion ends Sunday night at 11:59 p.m. PST, and it’s offered worldwide.
The brush and bowl gift set ($44 value) is limited edition and not available on its own, so this is an exclusive chance to get it! Want to know what we’d recommend? Check out Nicolle’s review of Laurel’s Facial Elixir, Facial Mask, and Healing Face and Body Balm. It highlights some of the best items from the line. If you’re a body oil lover, Susannah whole-heartedly recommends the California Body Oil. Featuring avocado, rosehip seed, tamanu, and red raspberry seed oils, the blend is insanely nourishing, and the scent alone will keep you coming back. Rose, sandalwood, vetiver, scotch pine, and cedarwood create an earthy and seductive aroma that’s different from everything else. The newest latest, however, are the holiday gift sets that just launched. This is a sweet value — for $228, each set includes a full-sized cleanser, elixir, serum, mask, plus the handcrafted mask bowl and mask brush, and a sample of the balm. Even the gift box is handmade! There’s a gift set for every skin type.
