I stumbled upon these adorable jars of all-natural beauty products by chance and was thrilled to see they are made right here in Connecticut. I immediately purchased the Rose Clay Mask and tried it out at home. While having my “at-home spa night”, I looked up the brand and started researching the creator, Sami.
Poor & Pretty was created by Sami Jensen in 2009 after she learned about all the gross ingredients in her frequently used bath and beauty products. Dissatisfied with what was out there, she set out to create her own line of 100% all-natural, hypoallergenic, vegan/cruelty-free. Her products are adorably packaged, smell amazing, and contain only the best ingredients. And because I know you’ll love Poor & Pretty as much as I do, there’s an exclusive discount code below!
I’ve had the pleasure of trying a few more of her products and I’m seriously impressed. Here are a few of the items I can recommend but I’m pretty sure everything she makes is awesome. (Not pictured: The AMAZING cocoa butter lip balm that is already living in my pocket, it’s that good.)
Coffee Sugar Scrub // This stuff smells so amazing and is so lovely slathered all over your body during your AM shower. It’s not too gritty and leaves a trail of soft, moisturized skin behind.
Whipped Body Butter // If you’ve ever had the desire to spread gooey chocolate, this stuff is your answer without all the mess! It smells like heaven and spreads so nicely over your skin. It doesn’t have a super greasy texture but it is rich so you do have to let it soak in a little. It’s even better when used after the coffee scrub!
Rose Face Mask // I’ve been really into dry, clay powder masks lately. I love that you get to mix up just the amount you need. This mask is really gently but doesn’t a great job brightening up your skin while also clarifying it. Plus, you look so chic with red clay spread all over your face (husbands and boyfriends beware!).
If I haven’t convinced you enough already, hopefully a little discount to her Etsy shop will motivate you to go check out Sami’s amazing products. Be sure to use code NATURALBEAUTY for 15% purchases of $10 or more in her Etsy shop. Everything she sells is already so affordable but this discount makes it even sweeter!
Also, 30% of every purchase made from her shop (through Saturday, May 30) is being donated to the Keydong Thukche Choeling Nunnery in Nepal to help provide comfort items like teddy bears, books, and blankets to the Buddhist nuns (some as young as 3!) who have been living outside in tents since the earthquakes hit Nepal.
Make sure to come back and let me know what you purchased in the comments!
Disclaimer: I only post about products I actually use and love. I purchased the mask myself. I was kindly gifted the scrub, body butter, and lip balm to review for you here. I’m looking forward to trying out a few more products like her charcoal mask!
