PURE Review and Giveaway!!!!



I recently purchased several Pure products, and we all really love them.  I've stopped accepting items for review, but I asked if I could review these products since I love them so much.  In addition to using the Pure products, the girls and I got to help pour and stir to make a few things!  It was so much fun, and the girls were proud to help.


After helping mix and pour to make lavender/lime lotion bars, we made our purchases.  O(7) brought her own money and was proud to buy a vanilla scented lotion bar and several bars of soap.  We also bought lavender and sweet orange liquid soap.  We bought several bars of soap, and we had Amy (co-owner of PURE) save 5 of the lavender/lime lotion bars for us to buy and give as gifts to our family and friends for Christmas.


Here is a description of the liquid soap from the PURE website...

"Enjoy all the benefits of natural, moisturizing, handmade soap in a liquid form.  Great for guests, or restrooms in public locales – Or just for those who prefer the liquid option!  This soap is gentle, highly cleansing, and great for your skin.  Made with Olive and Coconut oils, and Potassium Hydroxide.  Vegetable glycerin is added to enhance the moisturizing properties of this soap.  This soap is extra emollient, moisturizing and great for dry or problem skin. A naturally derived preservative which is ECOCERT approved for organic use is added to extend the shelf life of your soap and ensure the best quality product available. Try it once and you’ll never go back to “store bought” liquid soap!"



"PURE handmade artisan soaps and skincare products are made in small batches using only nature’s purest ingredients including sustainable, plant based oils and butters, locally sourced beeswax, all natural micas, clays and botanical additives and essential oils. Our products are tested on each other- not animals."



"We buy as many supplies locally as possible and are always on the lookout for great local ingredients. We love to recycle and encourage customers to reuse their containers by offering them a discount when they bring their package back to be refilled. PURE products are free of synthetic colors, fragrances and chemicals so they won’t compromise our water system, lakes or rivers. All natural ingredients mean a luxurious product that leaves skin soft, moisturized and healthy."

Since we don't use artificially scented soaps and lotions in our house, it is nice to be able to use scented products without all the nasty chemicals.  Our girls love scented lotion and soap, so they are thrilled that they are finally able to use these things :)

I plan to purchase most of my Christmas gifts for our family and friends from the Pure website, and I'm so excited about that!  I love that I'll be supporting hard working, kind individuals who are making a great natural product that is healthy for my family.  


We have been using the lotion bar on the 2 stubborn spots of excema on E(4)'s cheeks, and it seems to be helping.  The best part is that she LOVES it!  She used to wipe the excema lotion off her face, but she loves it when I put the lotion bar on her cheeks. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm planning to buy the healing balm to use for both of our girls.  


Here is more about the lotion bars from the PURE website...

"A solid long-lasting lotion push up bar, 100% intense moisture protection for your skin, no water or drying additives. Contains unrefined beeswax, grapeseed oil, shea butter, mango butter, avocado butter, non-GMO corn starch, Vitamin E and essential oils. Rub into your palm and spread on or apply just where you need it. (No liquids to worry about in the airport!)"

O(7) and E(4) LOVE lip balm, but I don't like for them to use products with chemicals and additives in them.  I'm planning to buy each of them several tubes of PURE lip balm that I'll wrap and hide in our Christmas tree for them to find on Christmas morning.  Here is a description of the lip balm from Pure...

"A smooth, luxurious lip balm that seals in moisture and protects from the elements. Made with all natural butters, grapeseed oil, locally sourced unrefined beeswax, stevia based sweetener and essential oil. Contains no additives that dry your lips."

Now, here's the fun part...go to the Pure website and take a look around.  Come back to Chasing Cheerios and leave a comment telling me what your favorite Pure item is, and that will enter you into the giveaway.  Then go to the Pure Facebook page and like it.  Come back to Chasing Cheerios and tell me that you liked the Pure Facebook, and you will be entered for a second chance in the giveaway.  Two numbers will be drawn randomly on the night of Friday, November 22.  The first winner will receive their choice of a bar of soap and a soap deck.  The second winner will receive their choice of lip balm and a lotion bar.  


This review reflects my honest opinion.  I was not paid or given items in exchange for this review.
