Talk About It - Grateful Body Skin Care

Writing the Talk About It features are so much fun for me and todays company spotlight is one I am very excited about. I am overjoyed to be able to introduce you to a wonderful, natural skincare line today called Grateful Body whom you can find at http://www.gratefulbody.com/. I have been using their products twice a day for a month now and I couldn't be any more thrilled with the results I have seen.

Grateful body is a skincare company that uses only the best, natural ingredients in their products. They are based out of Berkley, California and have been around since 1998. Their mission is to "bring you 100% natural skin care that is nourishing, effective and luxurious while supporting the health of your skin, your body, and your planet."

The company is a family business that started after the founder and creator lost two of his sisters to cancer. He then began to examine what chemicals we put in and onto our bodies in the name of beauty which led to Grateful Body skincare products. They use only the highest quality raw ingredients they can find, most of the time they even use things that have been grown locally, and do not include any of the yucky stuff like chemical fragrances or colors, synthetic preservatives, GMOs, petroleum or coal tar and the rest of the bad for your body ingredients that are often found in other beauty products. They are also vegan and cruelty free!

I love everything this company stands for and I really love their products. I was ecstatic about the opportunity I was given to try some of their products out. I was sent all 3 of the unscented Extra Gentle products – facial cleanser, toner and moisturizer – as well as the Clear Skin Treatment for acne and blemishes. The reason I chose the Extra Gentle line is because they are unscented and appropriate for those who are immune compromised. I have an illness so this was something that really made me excited. I'm very sensitive to scent so this was perfect for me!



Before I start talking about the actual product I want to be superficial for a moment. When the box arrived and I opened it I became speechless. The packaging is absolutely gorgeous! The cardboard tube the products come in is lovely as well as the glass bottles the product is in. They would look great sitting on any sink or vanity! I love each and every step of this set!



The cleanser is a lotion-y consistency that spreads smoothly over the face. It rinses off so easily and cleanly but leaves my face feeling clean without the stripped or dry feeling other cleansers can leave behind. At night I use my Olay Skin Cleansing Brush with it and my skin glows! As soon as I get out of the shower I spritz 2 sprays of the toner directly into my hand and then pat gently onto my face. I follow the toner with half a pump of the moisturizer, which is more than enough to cover my entire face (they even say on the bottle that you will probably need to use much less than you are used to!).
The Clear Skin Treatment is also really great, and has really helped to keep my hormonal acne from flaring up like it normally does once a month. The smell of this product is a bit strong (but not offensive) at first but when you get used to it's hardly detectable. It's also a spray and I apply it to my face much like I do the toner. I don't like spraying things directly onto my face, although I'm not quite sure why. You can use whichever method you prefer.



I cannot even begin to tell you how many compliments I have received about my skin since I've started using this line. My skin looks amazing! And it feels even better than it looks. It feels clean, hydrated, and like healthy skin should feel. I'm neither oily nor dry. Nothing is perfect in this world, but my skin is currently as close to perfect as it can be, and this is NOT an overstatement. I will forever be a loyal Grateful Body user from here on out.

Oh, and I forgot to mention how spectacular their customer service is! Mathea is the sweetest, and I really enjoyed e-mailing with her. I'm in love with this company and everything about them! I'm so excited they are letting me give one of you the opportunity to fall in love with them too!

They also gave me a discount code to share with all of you. If you want to place an order, just use the coupon code BAYAREA to get 15% of the products of your choice!

FTC: Grateful Body was so kind and generous to send me their Sensitive Skin Basics Set as well as the Clear Skin Treatment. All opinions are my own, and I am not being paid for this review. Thank you, Grateful Body!
