Whole Foods Market wants you to know that beauty products can be “green,” responsibly sourced and tested under strict quality standards- not just food. So Whole Foods Market is hosting the first-ever Beauty Week in all stores to celebrate Whole Beauty with events, classes and promotions from March 18 to 24. As part of Beauty Week, they challenged me to a product swap! They provided me with a $50 gift card and I got to use it to switch five of my every day conventional products for beauty and personal care products sold at Whole Foods Market. I received no monetary compensation and all opinions shared are my own. I can’t wait to share with you my swap details but first I will give you a run down of the Beauty Week event so you can get the most out it yourselves!
Whole Foods Market Beauty Week March 18-24
You will find events, classes, demonstrations and promotions in Whole Foods Market personal care products and cosmetics sections during the event. I went in on the first day of the event and found some employees giving out samples and showing you how to use products. I really enjoyed having someone explain to me which products they suggested for my skin. I also loved knowing that the products I purchased support a healthy me and a healthy planet!
Limited Edition Beauty Bag- Amazing Deal
Hold the phone for this on! During Beauty Week, all Whole Foods Market locations will offer a limited edition “Hello, Beauty!” bag for just $18 (valued at $60), beginning Saturday, March 21, at 10 a.m. local time. Bags are made with 100 percent cotton recycled saris from RIJI Green, a business committed to ending human trafficking. Each beauty bag is filled with six exclusive product samples, including Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub, Acure Cell Stimulating Facial Mask, Giovanni 2chic Ultra Repair Shampoo, Pacifica Eye Shadow Duo or Lipstick, Trilogy Vital Moisturizing Cream and Gabriel Mascara, plus $5 in beauty coupons! Holy cow! I already used my gift card to swap five products but you can bet I need to run back over to Whole Foods to take advantage of that deal!
Facial Care Sale
From March 20 to 22, you can save 25% off on all facial care items at Whole Foods Market! Yes! I love it! Sorry, sales on products I actually like always excite me. I mean we are talking about top-tier products at 25% off- sweet! Did you know that Whole Foods Market was named runner-up in the Sustainable Beauty Awards’ “Sustainable Leadership” category in 2014? That kind of stuff gets me all excited too. I have been shopping at Whole Foods since I discovered it in high school with my mom and I am just so proud of how they keep leading the way in bringing products to market that are good for us and good for the environment.
My 5 Natural Beauty Products Swap
This was a fun little challenge because swapping just a few products at a time is a great way to make a difference. As I said, I love a sale so I scored some great deals on natural beauty care I can trust. I needed to swap my haircare so I went over to that section and saw that the Andalou Shampoo and Conditioner were on sale – 2 for $10! What a savings- I snatched those up quick! I had not tried Andalou haircare yet, but I honestly do love every beauty product I try at Whole Foods so I figured I would love it. I do. Andalou has the most wonderful natural soft scents that make me enjoy their products even more. I also wanted to swap out some facial care products so I found an Andalou exfoliating peel and added that to my cart. Then I heard one of the Whole Foods ladies telling another lady about the ACURE products so I listened up and she suggested the Moroccan Argan Oil for my skin. I have been wanting to try it and it was on sale so that made 4 products. I could have shopped in their all day but then I spotted my fifth and final product swap and I knew I wanted it, even though it wasn’t on sale. It is the Preserve razor which combines high performance with sustainable design- 100% recycled plastic handle! That makes me happy. I am loving my new natural beauty products.
Here are some fun ingredient trends you can look for as you shop: turmeric, kombucha, watercress, and mongongo oil! I hope you get over to Whole Foods to take advantage of the Beauty Week specials while they last. You can visit WholeFoodsMarket.com if you want to use a store locator. Are you going to swap five?
