I adore beauty products. I really, really adore them all the more when they are green. When I began writing about eco-beauty here four years ago, the good stuff was harder to find. But now it’s just as luxe as it’s less eco counterparts. Which means your vanity can be filled with pretty bottles and pots free of parabens and petro chems and synthetic fragrance and dyes. It’s a win-win.

Thanks to our friends at the French beauty brand Caudalie, think of it as a win-win-win situation.

A few weeks ago I was telling you about the great set of goodies they sent me – the top three products their own team loves most: Vinoperfect Radiance Day Fluid ($68), Premier Cru the Eye Cream ($95), and their Beauty Elixir ($16/30ml).

Now their three cult faves can be yours, too! Enter our Caudalie giveaway to win this trio, a $179 retail value.

– Subscribe to our newsletter (if you haven’t already) by becoming a BB member (see that box in the top right corner).
LIKE us on Facebook – simply click the link on your right.

We’ll be notifying the winner via our Facebook page after Labor Day, on Tuesday, September 6th. The lucky winner will have 24 hours to respond. If we don’t hear from you, we will choose another lucky BB reader. So, watch our FB feed on the sixth!

All winners are chosen at random, and while we like to believe in the honor system, we also believe in playing by the rules, so we’ll be checking to see that entrants are subscribed to our newsletter.

(We love all of our international BB readers but the Caudalie giveaway is open to United States participants only.)

Also, if you’re in New York City on September 8th, join Caudalie in celebration of Fashion’s Night Out.  Founders Mathilde and Bertand Thomas will be at the Sephora at 5 Times Square – details to follow!  xo alex.

    OMG, what a terrific giveaway!!! I LOVE Caudalie and have since my fav SA at Sephora gave me a sample and I’ve been an active user of theirs since. Being an “all natural” girl, their products fit the bill in every sense. I’m so incredibly stoked that you’re doing this giveaway, and of course, I want to win so very badly, just like every other major Caudalie lover, lol. Thank you ever so much for all the great info that you pass along! I LOVE reading your blogs and am loyally attuned to them each time one comes out. I admit to even going out of my way trying to find some of the items you mention, :) Yes, you do have a MAJOR impact on your loyal readers. Thank you for that. Will definitely stay tuned on the 6th for the results of the giveaway on the *fingers crossed* chance that I may win this awesome prize!
