Nuciya: Canada's New Natural Online Beauty Store & Giveaway!

25 Aug 2014

I always love promoting other green beauty blogs and I was so happy to hear a while back that Amber from Natural Beauty had started her own natural online beauty store with her boyfriend Pavel!

Nuciya launched not that long ago and they held a competition to win some of the products that they stock on the website. I was so happy to receive a tweet early in the morning one day saying I had won! The prize was $100 worth of products and I was so excited as they are all brands from over the pond in the US & Canada so I haven't tried anything from any of the brands. I've only heard rave reviews from other bloggers so I was chuffed & couldn't wait to receive my prize.

They stock loads of green brands; Pangea Organics, Blissoma, 100% Pure, Routine, Sappho Organics, Karen Murrell, Laurel & Mun. They ship to the US & Canada as well as internationally so us UK girls can enjoy these hard to get to brands too! International delivery is free when you spend over $100 which isn't that hard to do as there are so many great products & brands for sale.

My prize was $100 worth of products and included was:

Blissoma Fresh Mild Rice Facial Cleanser which is made from organic brown rice, willowbark, Litsea Cubeba oil, chickweed & rose. It sounds perfect for my skin. Looking forward to trying this!

Kaia Naturals Juicy Bamboo Cleansing Cloths which are soaked in vitamins B12, C and E with honey & natural amino acids. These are meant to be great for cleansing, toning and removing eye make-up and are "tree-free" as they're made with soft unbleached bamboo!

Sappho Organic Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Hazey Dew which is made with organic oils, waxes and butters and is a gorgeous light pink shade and no carmine, yay! It isn't really gloopy and glossy like most glosses so I'm interested in seeing how this compares. It smells like lemon too, yum!

Routine Cream in Blackberry Betty is a cream deodorant that smells so good. It came at just the right time as I had run out of my deodorant during the BeautyChallenge10 and had been using a non-natural one for a week or so but I didn't want to buy another one as I knew this was coming! Its handmade in Calgary, AB, Canada which is really cool and how cute is the packaging?! Look at the cute lil bee!

MUN No.1 Aknari Sample is a luxurious (and expensive!) oil that is filled with prickly pear seed oil, rose oil and argan oil. This is called a "brightening youth serum" and it's supposed to instill radiance, smooth fine lines and even reduce dark circles so I'm excited to try this to see if it's worth the price tag!

Nuciya also held the most amazing Launch Sale from 30th July to 14th August where you could get some pretty awesome free gifts with purchase when you spent over a certain amount! If you spent $400 you got a FREE Mun No.1 Aknari which is worth $95! I, of course, couldn't resist placing a small order! My prize parcel actually got lost in the post (sad times!) and Amber very generously and kindly looked into it for me every week and was going to send me another parcel with the prizes in again so I thought I'd place an order at the beginning of the sale so they could ship my goodies all together.

Sappho Organics Eyeshadow Minaz - I'd seen some of the eyeshadows on Amber's blog a while ago and had been lusting after this shade as she said it works really well with hazel eyes. Its a lovely soft, peachy gold shade and is perfect as an all over shadow or for highlighting inner corners. I wore this last night and it is lovely, and didn't seem to crease as much as other shadows I've tried either..woo woop!

Sappho Organics Eyeshadow Jono - This shade is a muted brown which is ideal for popping in the crease and outer corner. I used this last night as an eyeliner with Minaz, all over and it was lovely & smooth and went on beautifully. 

Karen Murrell Lipstick Carnation Mist - Amber only just launched these lipsticks on the day the promotion started and she posted an Instagram picture with swatches of all the shades as well as e-mailing me a photo with the names of each colour - that's great customer service for ya there! Carnation Mist stood out to me the most and its a lovely dusky bright pink shade. It smells like cinnamon, oh so good!

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Blush Chiffon - I had wanted to try 100% Pure for so long and you can actually buy it here in the UK but it costs £28 for this blush whereas it's $36 on Nuciya so it worked out cheaper for me to buy it from there, as I was already placing an order. However, when I received my order the whole blush (which was meant to be pressed) was completely smashed :( Amber said I could have store credit or be sent another one but I said rather than her sending me another one I'll buy one here in the UK, so Amber is going to claim back for damages and send me a refund for the blusher. So very kind of Amber, thank you so much!

Then the freebie that you got with an order over $75 was the Bamboo Cloths so Amber very kindly said that as I had already won those, I could choose a different product for the same value so I chose Scotch Naturals Polish in the shade Stone Fence which is a gorgeous grey colour.

Then...my parcel was found! So I ended up receiving two $100 prizes, so Amber generously said I should do a giveaway on my blog with the spare prize, rather than sending it all the way back to Canada. So here we go girlies....here is your chance to win $100 worth of Nuciya goodies....all you have to do is enter in the Rafflecopter below! Sorry to you International girlies but this is UK only. I will be doing an international giveaway soon though! You will win 1x Juicy Bamboo Cleansing Cloths, 1 x Routine Deodorant, 1x Blissoma Mild Rice Cleanser 1 x MUN Sample. Enter using the Rafflecopter below.
