Benedetta Holistic Skin Care Giveaway

I love to do giveaways because it makes me happy to give back to you.

This week I have an exciting giveaway for you from one of my favorite organic, holistic, eco-friendly and (very important) high quality skincare companies, Benedetta.

A little bit about Benedetta:

Benedetta, founded in 1996, is a 100% botanical, Farm-Sourced™, skin care company. Each holistic formula is made in small batches with a focus on Certified Organic and Biodynamic™ ingredients, many California grown. The skin recognizes these vibrant and fresh ingredients, and is fed their viable nutrients, much like receiving better nourishment from eating organic and alive foods.

As a result, Benedetta preparations feed your skin, and have shown to CORRECT, PROTECT, and REJUVENATE with continued success.

The lovely Julia from Benedetta has offered to do this generous giveaway for readers of the Daily Connoisseur.


The winner of this giveaway will receive an On The Go Bag (suited to their skin type), Precious and Nourishing Antioxidant Facial Oil (for dry or oilier skin), and the Seaweed Mask (all together a $140 value).

The On The Go Bag contains a cream cleanser, a hydrating elixir and a visibly radiant moisturizer. The winner will choose between the following based on their skin type:

Drier- Neroli
Oilier- Ylang Ylang
Most- Rosemary Verbenone

Precious & Nourishing Facial Oils correct free radical damage deeper into the skin, reduce age spots and are anti-wrinkle. The winner will choose between Palmarosa (normal to dry) and Geranium (oily).

The Seaweed Mask detoxes, is anti-wrinkle, soothes puffiness and provides blemish control.

GIVEAWAY RULES

Please note, due to restrictions, this giveaway is only available for United States residents only.

To enter this giveaway please:

1. Leave a comment below stating your first name, last initial and city and state where you live.

2. Let us know what you love about your skin.

It may sound strange, but I actually love how sensitive my skin is. It means I can only use the gentlest and most conscious products...like Benedetta! I have liked their page since 2012. Thank you for such a thoughtful giveaway!

I love that my 57 year old skin is still smooth and clear. I excercise regularly and walk a lot so it also still has a bit of a glow to it!

Eliza said...

Great idea to have us comment on something we actually love about our skin! It's nice to say something positive! I would say that my paleness is what I love about my skin! I have red hair, blue eyes and pale skin, it's different and a little unique. I can't tell you how difficult it was to actually print something nice about myself...geez, I've got to work on that! Thanks for the generous giveaway!

I love my skin because I inherited it from my beautiful mother (she's still stunning in her 60's!) I only wish to have her clear, dewy glow at her age. As a makeup artist I know first hand how important it is to take care of your skin; yes makeup can help to hide some imperfections, but you cannot forget about proper skin care to help look your best! Love this post so much because you are asking women (and men!) to focus on what they love (and not what they would change!) as well as featuring a great eco conscious brand like Benedetta! Thank you Jennifer!

I have not always loved my skin as I should have but love that I'm 45 and aging as gracefully as I can! Learning to take better care and more importantly, passing this on to my daughters.

Love this kind of giveaway but also knowing that there are healthy & eco-friendly alternatives to skin care - thank you!

I liked Benedetta's page and will be sure to pass this giveaway and their page along to friends. Good stuff!!!

I like that my skin didn't have acne all through my teenage year and people always used to be surprised :) People tell me I have a soft skinAt the moment though, I'm having hard time with it because I am too stressed out with university. Benedetta sample product have a great effect on my skin and the CREME CLEANSER ROSEMARY & GERANIUM have helped a lot. I love that your product smell so natural and ARE natural!

I have liked your page on Facebook as well :)

McKristie said...

Why do I love my skin? Usually it is smooth and clear enough I do not have to wear makeup - lately though that has changed:) - so this is the perfect give away! I need more gentle in my routine!

I love that my skin has improved with age because I have learned how to take care of it better.

Marissa I said...

I love my skin because it is wrinkle free for now. However, I will try to embrace each wrinkle with dignity and grace as I age.

I like that at 51, my skin is still fairly wrinkle free thanks to it being oily when I was young :)

Danae said...

The thing I love the most about my skin is how pale it is. Although I have to work a little to cancel out /any/ redness so that I don't look flushed, I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you for asking us to focus on what we love rather than what we dislike, Jennifer!
I liked Benedetta on FB also; I've heard of them before as I have very sensitive skin and find that many harsh or 'drugstore' products just don't do for it.
Danae W. Wilson, NC

Lola Cupcake said...

I love how quickly my skin responds to proper hydration. I just had my second daughter and have been making a real effort to drink as much water as possible. It's amazing how much better my skin feels when I do so.
Laura H Golden,CO

Carol White said...

What I love about my skin is that I don't have any wrinkles & lines most women my age (50+) do. I've used eye cream since it was invented! A lovely giveaway.

I am on a continual quest for the perfect skincare that loves my skin. I accept the fact I cannot stop time, but I refuse to allow time to show on my skin. Look forward to this exciting giveaway. Thank you.

Siusan said...

I love my skin because it is even and smooth. It is a great canvas that I can paint (a little or a lot) to enhance my natural beauty. I guess that's why I love to put on makeup. It makes me feel like a bit of an artist every day. --Siusan O., Endwell, NY

What I love about my skin is that it has improved with age, and I take better care of it now then I did in my twenties and thirties. Thanks for the great giveaway!

I love the tone of my skin. I am half Irish and half Asian and it makes a good combination for skin color, I think. I LOVE your blog and your book.

Melissa U said...

Hi Jennifer!

What a fabulous giveaway! What I have learned to love about my skin is that it is oily! As I approach middle age, I am less concerned about lines and wrinkles, thanks to it!
Also, I "liked" Benedetta!

I love that my skin is steadily getting better. I have been suffering from acne and dryness, but it's been improving! Thank you so much for the give-a-way Jennifer!! :)

Wild Ox said...

I love the color of my skin. I don't tan and I use sunscreen, but it's stays a healthy "light tan" naturally. My face has been clearing up after 20 years of acne, and I can finally get by with a very light foundation after years of being self-conscious and hiding behind my makeup. I have wanted to try Benedetta for a while now - such a great giveaway!
~Jennifer R., Fort Thomas, KY

S said...

I love my skin because it goes from very pale to golden when tan, my father called me his 'golden girl' because I had gold blonde hair and golden skin in the summer. Sally B, Columbus, Ohio

Angeluna said...

I love that the oily skin I had when younger means today I don't have any wrinkles (and I'm of an age when I should). Also very happy that I inherited my father's skin and not my mother's. Her dry skin had shriveled by 50, whereas my father didn't have a wrinkle or an age spot at 90. I hit the genetic lottery and am very conscientious about the products I use.

When I lived for many years in Paris, I was lucky enough to know the owner of one of the biggest cosmetics labs. He guided me through all the product lines and said the simplest is usually the best. Your Paris based philosophy on style always catches my interest.

Thank you for the generous offer.

My skin has always been oily which seems to have helped my overall skin appearance as I have aged.
I would love to try the Benedetta products.

Sarah said...

Sarah W. from Glen Ridge, NJ
Thanks for the give away and fingers crossed. I like that my skin has is a real indicator of my overall health. If it starts to look dull, if I get blemishes, it's usually because I'm not drinking enough water or taking better care with my diet. My skin never lies to me (lol)!

Cherie said...

Cherie G. from Keeling, VA. I love that my skin has aged well which I attribute to protecting it from the sun when I was young (especially important while living in Southern California and South Florida!), good genes, and my vegetarian diet. I like to use all natural skincare products so I'm interested in learning more about Benedetta.

I also liked Benedetta on facebook. :)

I'm Tracey B from Charleston, SC. I like that my skin reflects the life that I've lived. While I don't have too many wrinkles (yet!), I feel like the smile lines and "crinkles" around my eyes reflect the enjoyable moments I've had with family and friends.

Bon Jour. I love that I have smooth and young looking skin despite the fact that I look significantly younger than I am.

Merci for hosting this generous giveaway contest.

I love that my skin is Downton Abbey fair. I stay out of the sun to keep my skin healthy. I know it may be more popular to be tan, but I embrace my ivory complexion. I take good care of it with the best natural products I can afford. I also liked Benedetta's facebooks page. Thank you!

What a wonderful giveaway, Jennifer! I liked Benedetta's facebook page. I love my pale complexion.

Laura said...

Laura R. from New Jersey

My skin is very pale, but recently I've come to like and even appreciate that. I stopped sunbathing and wearing bronzer and started using sunscreen every day. I certainly hope the sun protection will pay off in a few decades, but in the meantime, I'm happy to like my skin the way it is.

Laura said...

Reading the other comments, I'm so happy to see that a number of us are happily pale!

torriador said...

Ursula S. Bronx,NY.. If I had to choose one thing I love about my skin it would be how after all hear years it has taken care to age me gracefully.

Wayne said...

I love the peachy color of my skin. It has a brightness to it that I like. Especially when I take good care of it.

Wayne said...

I liked Benedetta's Facebook Page a long time ago as well. :)

Mrs. M said...

I love that my skin seems to be a window for how I'm really feeling (I blush so easily!) and how well I am taking care of myself. It's a barometer for me. I can always tell when I need to slow down and start taking better care of myself. It shows on my skin!! I also liked Benedetta's facebook page. BOBBIE/ UNION. MO

Ashley Diaz said...

Ashley D. from Milton, Georgia

It took me a while to get here, but I would have to say that I love the fairness of my skin. Growing up with many olive-skin friends, it definitely took me a while to appreciate my anglo-ivory skin, but I believe I have finally arrived :)

I also liked Benedetta skin care on facebook!

Katherine Green said...

My name is Kate G and I live in Phoenix, AZ. What I love about my skin? I still break out occasionally even though I'm past my teens and into my twenties, but I love that doing simple things takes care of. Sweating during a workout, drinking water and a mild cleanser - plus sunscreen does the trick!

Annette said...

Annette P from Opelousas, LA. What I love about my skin is that at almost 49 I have no lines or wrinkles.

IAmy Feins from Naples, Fl. I love my skin because even though the oiliness drives me crazy I find that I have no wrinkles even at 52!

Deborah said...

Debbie F. from Orlando FL. My skin is oily, so as I age, I will have few problems with wrinkles if I take care of it. I'm actually looking right now for a skin care source, and I'm also going on a short business trip at the end of February so having the On the Go kit would be an added blessing.

I visited Benedetta's FB page, and "liked it."

Genna Mcalpin said...

Genevieve M from Madison MS. I love my skin because I know it so well. It took some time to figure out but my skin responds best to products that use organic ingredients. Thank you Jennifer for being an inspiration to so many!

Tiffany, P. - Philadelphia, PA. What I love about skin is that it's mine! Dark circles and signs of aging; nevertheless, I love it - and love to take care of it, and as a result, it glows! ;)

Anna said...

I love the fact that my skin has been good to me and rarely breaks out!

sheepystitious said...

I love that my skin is so forgiving to me, and I'm still getting to know it at age 30. I've done countless DIY procedures that should have left my skin in tatters, yet as I have started to treat it right, it bounces back and is better than ever. Thank you, skin.

I love that my use of sunblock & eye cream since college have really paid dividends! At 60 (this Saturday!), I have unlined porcelain skin, no crows-feet, & just laugh-lines. Began using Benedetta as you recommended last year. LOVE it! My complexion is even better now.

I love that my skin looks youthful for my age. I must be doing something right, or have good genes. Either way I am thankful.
I also adore Benedetta's Deodorant, and if you haven't switched over from antiperspirants, you should.

Janet said...

Janet W Elkins Park PA. I love my 53 year old skin. I drink water and exercise and would love to learn new tricks. PS I just read your book and loved it. We are going to get rid of the TV, read more, visit local cultural sites and entertain more.

Unknown said...

I really like my ivory complexion, when I was younger and could never tan I was so envious of my friends who could. Now at 50, I embrace my pale color. And, a little blush and lipstick go a long way.

Melissa said...

I love that I inherited my mother's beautiful skin -- at 47 I still look younger than most (and at 77, she looks GREAT!)

I love that after about nine years of struggling with acne, my skin is finally starting to behave!

Carrie A Groff said...

I love my skin because it tans easily and is oily which so far has helped me not be so wrinkly. I am only 28 and am always looking for organic products to protect my skin and keep it looking young.

I love the fact that my skin has made it through relatively unscathed despite having been plagued by cystic acne for 20 years. I have very few scars!
