Skin Free with Giveaway **Closed**


Here's a little bit about Skin Free.

All products distributed by Blue Ridge Gypsy Studio™ are designed and formulated by owner and practicing pharmacist, Julie Hilton, who has over 30 years experience in compounding and natural skin care. “I started the Studio in 2000 when my husband and I moved to the Blue Ridge of Virginia. Our friends were calling us “gypsies”, so the name evolved naturally.”

“Working in a typical retail pharmacy setting, I was constantly frustrated when asked to recommend products for patients with difficult skin problems, especially those with fragrance allergies. I recognized a void in the market and knew that I could offer effective and affordable products to fill it. Atopic dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis are life-long conditions and need to be addressed for the long term. Patients with diabetes or renal disease, pregnant women, babies, the elderly, and patients treated with radiation therapy can all benefit from quality natural products. Even people who just have dry, sensitive skin can appreciate wholesome natural skincare products.”

“Since I personally suffer from chronic allergies and eczema, I understand that it is very important for people with these conditions to maintain the integrity of their skin and reduce their exposure to antigens to help prevent acute outbreaks. These diseases can be quite debilitating and cause increase depression, work loss, and pain."

Naturally occurring vegetable oils and butters contain indigenous nutrients, antioxidants, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS), and antibacterial agents that petroleum-based oils just don’t have. Natural oils absorb into the skin and do not feel greasy. They also come from replenishable sources, which is a great environmental concern.

"I hope that SkinFree™ products will become widely used and be truly helpful to the ever increasing patient population who need products such as these."

I got to try out the eczema relif kit which includes the After Shower Moisture Spritz and the Extra Moisturizing Soap & Shampoo Bar which was Awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance in August, 2008. I have eczema and am always sceptical of trying out new soap, it ends up drying out my skin and then taking forever to get my skin back to how it was before hand. It also usually ends up making me all itchy, or not rinsing clean away when I use it. This soap was amazing! It lathered up into a very creamy lather and rinsed clean away nice and clean. This is a product I will continue to purchase! The after shower spritz was great for when I was feeling dry or starting to get itchy. It is a nice moisturizer that you just spray on fresh out of the shower to lock in all the moisture. You don't even dry off first. You just spray on, slightly towel off and you are nice and moisturized. This will be awesome for the fall and winter for me.


I also got to try out the Lite Moisture for Blemish Prone Skin. This is a great daily moisturizer for your face. I would say that I have combination skin and have breakouts quite often. I usually end up having to buy expensive creams to use on my face but this cream is very reasonably priced at only $15.99 and worked great. It wasn't to heavy or to light and kept my breakouts at bay. It rubbed in wonderfully and my skin didn't feel greasy at all.


These are all products I would stand behind and recommend to family and friends and will continue to purchase myself as well.
