{save} Cruelty Free Skincare + $50 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!

{save} skincare giveaway

Hi, bunnies! I know we are all feeling SO many different feelings these days. For me, they sometimes come all in one day! I’m still self-isolating, recovering from the flu, and actually feeling a lot more positive than I was two weeks ago. I couldn’t get myself to write about beauty products last week. It just seemed so unimportant relative to the coronavirus scare. But now that more of us are staying home (and I cannot stress how important that is), I think we’re looking for ways to keep our minds occupied and keep spirits up.

To that end, I have a fun giveaway for you! I know some of us haven’t been able to leave the house to go shopping, and some of us are saving money right now. So, I hope this HUGE cruelty free, vegan skincare haul from {save} can really benefit someone and brighten their day. They are giving away an entire set of skincare products plus a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky winner!

{save} cruelty free skincare giveaway

{save} skincare is a new brand, available exclusively in the US, but brand founder and CEO Joanna Draniak-Kicínska was born into the parent company BANDI. BANDI was started by Joanna’s mother over 30 years ago, on the heels of the fall of communism in Poland, when Joanna was just a girl. 

Joanna saw a need for American women to have safe options that don’t break the bank when choosing skincare products. She created {save} as a clean, minimalist skincare line that is especially gentle on sensitive skin. The brand has a passion for women’s empowerment, listing health and safety, inclusivity and equality amongst their top brand values.   

Personal care manufacturing standards in Europe are far stricter than they are here in the U.S.  While the US personal care industry is largely unregulated, in Europe 1,328 ingredients are specifically banned from skincare products. {save} products are still manufactured in Poland for now, and while they have plans to move manufacturing here within the next 5 years, they will remain 100% committed to maintaining the high standards for safety and quality that the EU demands.

I am impressed with what is NOT in {save} products, but I’m also impressed with some of the ingredients they are using that you don’t see every day. They use bakuchiol which is gaining popularity as an easier-on-the-skin retinol alternative. Several of their products also have: bacillus ferment (a gentler AHA alternative), bamboo bioferment (a silica alternative that softens skin), caviar lime (a vitamin-rich exfoliant), cica (a plant-based ingredient that protects skin from pollution, UV and blue light), ectoin (protects skin from the elements), trehalose (a skin-hydrating sugar), and prebiotics/probiotics (which support your skin’s natural microbiome).

Here’s a quick rundown on each {save} product that we’re giving away:

{save} skincare Gentle Gommage Exfoliator

Gentle Gommage Exfoliator ($25) – This product is a perfect combination of enzymatic exfoliator and scrub and lets you gently, without the need of rubbing your delicate skin, get rid of its dead cells without scratching. 97% nature-derived formula includes 100% GMO-free rice starch working as a gommage agent and biodegradable peeling elements, obtained from a tree cellulose offer you plastic-free formula (no plastic beads).
