Save Your World Review & Giveaway

I was so happy when I heard from Save Your World about reviewing for them. I think that they have a wonderful cause and was excited to try their products! When you buy from Save Your World, 1 product= 1 acre of rainforest saved for 1 year! I think saving and protecting our rainforests is very important.

Did you kow? (Taken from the Save your world Press Kit)
At the current rate of destruction, half of our remaining rainforests will be gone by 2025 and complete devistation by 2060
  • Every second we lose an acre the size of two football fields
  • Every day we lose an area larger than all five boroughs of ew York City
  • Every month we lose an area about the size of New Hampshire
  • Every year we lose an area twice the size of Florida
Our rainforests need us, and Save Your World is helping out tremendously by donating a portion of the proceeds from every product sold. Their current mission is to preserve 200,000 acres of rainforest in Guyana, South America. Find out more about the mission HERE.

To review, I recieved:
As soon as I opened the package, I could smell the products. They have a very  organic/earthy smell. I really liked it! Very natural, not too overpowering. The body lotions are made with pure natural essential oils. They also have Organic Aloe and Organic Yerba Matè. My favorite was the Oasis fruit. Has a scent of grapefruit-citrus! The exfoliating bars are 100% natural hand crafted, and also have  Organic Aloe and Organic Yerba Matè. They will provide nutrient-rich antioxidants to your skin! As for the lip balms, they are non greasy (which I love), and protect while nourishing. The exforliating bars, lip balm, and all other products are scented with pure essential oils.

Overall, I love the products, and love the thought of helping my planet while using them. Please go the the Save Your World website and order! This is one purchase you wont feel guilty about!

~Win It~
Save You World has offered the chance for one of my readers to win a bottle of lotion and a bar of soap!

Although 25% of our pharmaceuticals contain ingredients from plant sources, only 1% of rainforest plants have even been tested for their value. Protecting the rainforest keeps these resources available.

I learned that they use essential oils from Fair Trade sources and that they use organic vegetable oils instead of animal fats. The ingredients and soap making process that they use amplify the moisturizing effects of their soap.
