SIRJJ Organics Review and Giveaway

Going green is quickly becoming a way of life for many of us. We're more conscious of how we use fuel, recycle, and how the various products we use are packaged and produced. For me this concern has also come with a new awareness about not only what I put in but what I put on my body. For me the following part SIRJJ Organic's mission is especially important:

"It’s all about purity, but in every aspect, not just a few extracts and oils. Sirjj does not use extracts, but produces products with pure organic herb powders, organic aloe whole leaf juice, and organic cold pressed unrefined oils and butters. It is evident that these practices and core principles for standard are finding solid ground in the skin care industry."
I got two products from the AcaiBerry line to try out. First up was the cleansing cream, from the beginning I could tell it was going to be very different from the cleansing cloths I had been using. It has a thick creamy consistency, with little flecks in it. Cofounder Sarah told me to expect to see these, they're raw herbs, teas and powders used solely for nutritional benefit. The cleansing cream has a mild smell to it, kind of nutty actually. That is the natural aroma from the raw oils used – fragrance oils, alcohols, essential oils are NOT used in formulas - NEVER.

Gentle Antioxidant Facial Cleanse
Contains Raw Organic Acai Berry Chips - Rich in Antioxidants and Vitamins A&C
Infused with Acerola Cherry - Intensely High in Vitamin C
Safe for Most Skin Types
Gluten Free

Like I mentioned previously, I had been using daily cleansing cloths to clean my face at night. They are convenient and with the kind I used you don't even have to wet your face. But I was getting growing concerned over the waste involved and I don't think they were really cleaning that well. I've been having breakouts on my chin and trouble in my T zone.

After a week of using the AcaiBerry Cleansing Cream I noticed a difference, my skin felt smoother and even less dry. I like knowing that there are no fillers, no thickeners, no chemicals, no parabens, and no carcinogens going on my face and that it's rich in antioxidants and vitamin C. I've also have been testing the AcaiBerry Rehydration Cream; it is thick stuff! It is:

Raw Unrefined Mango and Shea Butters combine with AcaiBerry to nourish the inner layers of the skin, even skin tone and improve the elasticity and overall appearance and health of the skin.

Made with Organic Raw Acai Berry Chips combined with
Raw Organic Unrefined Shea Butter and Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil
Helps combat signs of aging while providing deep hydration
Concentrated Skin Nutrition for Dry & Dehydrated Skin

To me this product had a very definite nutty smell to it, which I liked. It smells both earthy and sweet all at once, and it really moisturizes! I used to get dry patches on my cheeks, no more! And my fingertips are also very dry, especially around the nail. I've been rubbing this in and no more white dry skin there either. I loved the rehydration cream, it's heavy duty moisturizer and very efficient, you only need to use a little bit at a time.

I'd like to also mention that I have notoriously sensitive skin. A lot of times a new skin care regimen will result in an allergic reaction or irritated skin for the first few days even weeks. I had no problems switching over to the Acaiberry products. Now that I know I don't react to their products, I'm interested in trying some of their acne fighting ones for help with periodic break outs on my chin and around my nose. Plus they are coming out with make up soon too, I'm super interested in their cream foundation and blushes.

I do think skin care is important, especially using an SPF cream daily. I already have age spots that I am NOT excited about.

However, I don't feel it's necessary to use organic skin care products. If I were to win this, I would definitely weigh the option, especially if I thought the products were fabulous, which I suspect they are from your review.

At this time I am using Lancome moisturizer. It's the best I have found for ME at this point. Even as a teen I used Oil of Olay, just like my grandma!

Yay-- I'd love to win this! =)

I'm definitely interested in the Acai Berry SPF10 Day Cream! I read somewhere (although I'm not sure if it's true) that 95% of skin aging comes from the sun, so clearly SPF is important! And I've been meaning to try organic products because logically they should be better for your skin!

Anyway I hope I win. I'm also following you on twitter; my homepage is twitter.com/nyikin!

Currently I am obsessed with Lush products which are organic and most of them are vegan too. I am stickler for no makeup and like to keep a clean fresh face. I wash my face in the morning and evening before bed and apply moisturizer both times (spf in the morning).
