Valentine’s Giveaway: $230 of 2014’s BEST natural cosmetics!

Okay, kids. I’ve been cooking this one up for a while, and I’m pretty excited to give away this treasure chest of my favorite natural, non-toxic cosmetics — over $230 worth of ’em!

If you read my “Best of 2014” round-up, you’ll know why I’m so enamored with each of these brands, and, in particular, the goodies I was lucky enough to test. Five of these incredible companies were kind enough to spread the love and contribute the items I mentioned, so that you can try them for yourself!

YumUniverse will help spiff you up from the inside out, Ella’s and Plantae will polish up that skin, and 100% Pure and LACC will add a little pizzazz to that newly detoxified brain vessel of yours!

So, how can you enter to win? Simply follow Addicted on twitter and tweet the following:
