$25 Alex & Von e-Gift Card Giveaway and Suki & 100% Pure reviews

I was introduced to Alex & Von a while ago.  It is right up my alley. Alex & Von currently sells 2 all natural skincare lines, 100% Pure and Suki as well as Wee Decor kid's room wall decals.  You can read more about the company and their story at Alex & Von: Our Story

I love how different the approach Alex & Von uses is.  They started out with home parties and products they found through friends and bloggers and now they are a business.  They welcome product suggestions and open suggestions up for comments on their website.  They also let their consultants choose which brands to sell.  They are not forced to sell everything Alex & Von has available.  They can choose products they like and believe in. 

You know I love 100% Pure but I have never tried Suki before.  Chrystal Johnson who is an Alex & Von leader and also a fellow blogger at offered me the chance to try some samples. You can see my reviews below.

You can find Chrystal's Alex & Von shop at  and her facebook page:

This is Chrystal's story:
In early 2007, I was diagnosed with melanoma. It never even occurred to me that having cancer would be a possibility in my life. It was a real wake-up call for me. After that, I started doing a lot of research on what may have contributed to me developing melanoma at only 29-years old. (Here’s a blog post I wrote on it if you want more information:

I started finding links in everything – from the food we drink, to the air we breathe to the skincare products we put on our skin. I have spent the last four years delving deep into the subject and making incremental changes in my life (I’ve been blogging about those changes for over two years now at Happy Mothering,

So when, almost 8 months ago, I stumbled upon alex+von, a new social selling company focused on eco-responsible brands, I got in contact with the Founders to learn more. After that conversation, I knew this was an organization I was supposed to be part of. The Founders are amazing. And the consultants I work with inspire me every day.

Currently, alex+von represents two proven natural and organic skincare brands – 100% Pure and suki Skincare. Both brands have amazing ingredient integrity, and actually perform as promised (I have had less than desirable results from some “natural” brands in the past). I love being able to share my passion for natural living through alex+von.

If you haven’t heard of alex+von, it’s a new and innovative social selling company that enables women to make income recommending and selling products made by eco-responsible boutique brands – all made in the USA. I have a true passion for this company, and the brands we represent.

The products I got to try: 

Suki - My first time trying out this skincare brand but I am really pleased with the results.  My skin was so happy with this.  I am looking forward to using it more often. Their products are very natural and I was very impressed with the ingredients list.  

Suki Balancing Day Lotion - A little more fragrant than I normally like but you can tell it is natural scent because it doesn't bother me like many scents do.  My face seemed really happy with this as my day cream.

Suki Creamy Foaming Cleanser - Awesome! I used this in the morning with my Clarisonic in the shower.  My face felt squeaky clean and fresh.

Suki Pure Facial Moisture Balancing - A nice oil for your skin.  I accidentally used a little too much because it was hard to just get a couple drops out of a sample envelope LOL Even so, my face was happy. I was able to blot and my skin felt soft as a baby's tushy.

Suki Transformative Cleansing Clay - My fave Suki product that I got to try.  I NEED this one.  You can use it as a cleanser or a mask so I opted to try the mask and all I can say is wow.  My skin felt great and my pores felt much tighter.  It is great for sensitive skin that breaks out.

Suki Tinted Active Moisturizer in both natural and porcelain - This was a nice one for a day cream too.  I wore this under my make up and both shades seemed to work fine on my skin.  You can mix it with another moisturizer or wear it on its own.

100% Pure - Already a favorite natural brand of mine.  So happy to have a new place to shop for it. For more 100% Pure reviews, search my blog for 100% Pure.

100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream- already one of my faves.  I use this one daily, both morning and night all around my eye area.  Love it!

100% Pure Red Wine Resveratrol Nourishing Cream - This may be my new night cream for my face. It feels so good on.  My skin seems really happy with it too. 

100% Pure Nourishing Body Cream - Another favorite that I already use.  I absolutely love this, especially in Coconut and Honey Almond.  Yummy!
