Thesis Beauty is an artisan company run by a family of happy vegetarians – dedicated to the development of truly healthy beauty! Their range includes only organic, plant-based ingredients + products are made with cruelty-free, vegan standards. As beauty purists, their goal is to create affordable, truly natural products that work + are responsible in every way. What’s the point in creating the purest, greenest products – if only a few can afford them, right? Since Thesis is a family company, all items are produced in small, handmade batches + they’re able to focus on what’s really important – quality products, instead of stock prices. Their website has a wealth of info + you can read more about why they do, what they do here.

Thesis likes to keep it simple! They only use plant-based – vegan, gmo-free + PETA approved, certified organic ingredients. That’s it. Almost all of their ingredients are raw, with very few exceptions + the only non-organic ingredients they use are salts, clays, pumice + other minerals that are of non-agricultural origin. They carefully assess each ingredient + formulate with only the most unprocessed, potent botanicals available, because quality ingredients are everything when it comes to truly pure + functional skin care.

West Indies Poppy Seed Scrub

The most natural way to exfoliate your skin without using plastic beads, detergents, toxic chemicals, aggressive acids or abrasive particles (like salt or sugar). Based on all-natural clays + edible ingredients, this scrub effectively removes buildup of expired skin cells, purifies pores + massages your skin – preventing breakouts + prepping it to absorb essential nutrients from your moisturizer or mask. Treat your skin to a truly natural, spa-like facial experience! Read my raving review, here!

Breast Cancer Prevention

Despite the billions of Pink Ribbon dollars, were still no closer to a cure + there are still no perfect screening tools for Breast Cancer, especially for those of us that are younger, + have really dense tissue! So, I highly recommend Self-Breast Exams each month because nobody knows your body better than you do! Personally I like to us an app to remind myself each month, like, Check Yourself, or the Your Man Reminder. For a funny little “how-to”, check out this video!

Back in 2009, I found a lump, went to the doctor, + they told me not to worry about it + to go home, because I was too young! Luckily, I didn’t listen, because about 2 months later, I was a Breast Cancer Survivor at 31! So, trust your gut + be your own advocate! Read more about my story, here.

What to Look For

Breast Cancer Prevention

 

Organizations + Resources

Some amazing Breast Cancer Organizations + Resources I support, but didn’t know about at the time are Breast Cancer ActionThink Before you PinkKeep-a-BreastNon-Toxic RevolutionBreast Cancer FundReThink Breast Cancer, + Unite For HER {disclosure: I’m their Health + Beauty Advisor}.

My opinion on donating to organizations is a bit skewed, as I was unable to receive any help from any of them when going through treatment, or in the aftermath, when trying to pick up the pieces of my life! I was shocked because I’d raised a lot of money for them, volunteered, did all the walks, + even wore a pink ribbon throughout college. But, there were literally no resources for people my age. Like, none! I was too old to fall into the Childhood Cancer Group, + too young for the “real” Cancer-age Group. I was even told not to go to support groups because the people in them were much older + dying, + they would resent me because I wasn’t. I couldn’t even get counseling! I was devastated.

So, I say, your best bet is to donate to one of the organizations I mentioned above, or directly to a Survivor! Buy them a bag of fresh, organic groceries, a Grocery Store Gift Card, or help them pay a bill {cell phone, internet, car insurance, rent, utilities, student loans, etc.}. They usually really need it, but will never say so. The stress of not being able to get the things you need, guilt of mounting bills, or burden to those around you is insane, + can sometimes feel worse than the Cancer itself! The reality is, 5 years later, I still have crazy “preventative” expenses. Every last penny I have goes to doctors I want to see, tests I want to get + Treatment choices I have made, because they aren’t covered by insurance! If you’d like to help with those expenses, you can donate to my Green Juice Fund!

New giveaways daily! Come back tomorrow + win more than once!

Throughout my experience over the past few years, I’ve put my whole heart + soul into The GG, to try to help as many others as I can – to avoid the heartache I’ve had to go through. Possibly, from not knowing what the chemicals in my food, beauty products + lifestyle were doing to my body. In the process, I’ve had the opportunity to meet tons of like-minded people, try products I’d never dreamed of + work with amazing companies whose values are aligned with mine.

So, I’ve partnered with some of the best in the Green Beauty Biz to give you the same opportunities I’ve had with taking those first steps + trying better beauty products! I wanted to let you know how much I really appreciate YOU… so I’m giving away almost three thousand dollars worth of amazing, natural + organic beauty products! Thank you for all the love + support (it means the world to me), for always reading what I write, oh – and teaching me a thing or two, every now + then. Haha. You’re ALL winners in my book! Love you guys!
