  22. Margie Rodgers says:

    I have dealt with some severe rashes,at times lasting many months, on my body and my face. many doctors and too much money later to investigate the mysteries I am VERY picky and cautious about what I put on my skin. Shear miracles organic hair color and products have not let me down in the past 5 years. I can not and will not go out of the house without their makeup everyday. Please consider me as I’m always in need of an Organic arsenal.

  26. Karrie Millheim says:

    I love that this is a 100 percent pure. I am going through a change right now of trying to use as natural of products there is to use. I have sensitive skin and I am wondering if some of the chemicals in them are causing me to have rashes and outbreaks. I dont even know what half these chemicals are. So I am in trying all pure products to see how that helps me. This is a lovely package of products that I would put to good use. Thanks for the chance

  27. I work at a local nature center teaching children about the importance of nature and animals. I work through the program AmeriCorps. I love my job and giving back to my community and encouraging children to be passionate and respectful about nature. However, I only make enough to cover bills and I do not get to treat myself quite often. Winning these products would be a great way to treat myself.
    I have used face wash by 100% pure.

  28. Ashlyn Bishop says:

    The only product I use is the 100% Pure blush. I pretty much only use makeup from them! Why should I win? Well, first I am vegan, so I am always looking for products that don’t have animal parts in them. I am also very eco-friendly. All of my friends know this, so they are always coming to me for advice and asking about what products to change out. I am always preaching about the dangers of using products with chemicals, especially to my friends that are new mommies! Anytime I find out about a dangerous product or company, I put it on Facebook, so I would definitely promote these products from the contest! Also, I have 3 new roommates who are very hesitant to change out their makeup and skin care, so I would love to share with them. And I have been wanting a shower filter for a long time! This Los Angeles water is drying out my skin and making my hair look flat. I definitely need a shower filter!

  29. 100% Pure Skincare, mascara and lip gloss have been part of my routine for years. As has locally farmed lavender products which I collect on all my domestic travels. I am eager to try technologically advance yet natural and chemical free Skincare.

  30. Crystal Kolocheski says:

    I would love to win! I really could use these products because I will be 30 this year and this would be great. Thanks for the chance 🙂

  31. karen mayernick says:

    Great Prizes! Thanks so much for the chance!

  32. I haven’t used these amazingly fabulous products but I would love to try them. Thanks for the opportunity.

  33. joy boudreau says:

    These are all amazingly fabulous products that I would love to try. I can’t say I “deserve” them, because who does?! But, I would be very overjoyed if I win. Thanks for sharing the happiness!

  34. After completely overhauling my diet last summer after a 6 week stay in the hospital, I am now working on overhauling other aspects of my life in healthy ways! This would be a wonderful start!

  35. Donna Newgren says:

    I haven’t had a real Valentine’s day in many years, I think it’s about time 🙂 If not somebody will, thank you for the chance miigwitch

  36. I am in awe at all of the products. Overwhelmed to say the least. Such wonderful, unique items all shown here amaze me. I would hope I am deserving of them because I have never owned nor eaten (referring to the chocolate bars) anything so very nice as these products in this giveaway. I honestly would be truly humbled to be chosen.

  37. Cheryl Norris says:

    I would love to win all these products. I’m to overhaul all my products and use only green products. Thank you

  38. I would like to win as I would really enjoy all the products. But most importantly, I am becoming more Green by the day and enjoy supporting companies and using their products that support a green living.
