HUGO NATURALS – Review & HUGE Giveaway!!!

I was first introduced to Hugo Naturals in 2011 when I attended the Natural Products Expo West for the first time.  Hugo and Debra Saavedra, the founders of the company were so warm and inviting when I visited their gorgeous booth.  I could tell from the instant that I met them that they absolutely loved their company and products.  Debra spent a great deal of time with me going over their products and why they were so proud of the fact that they were the first body care company to remove all traces of gluten from their products (certified by the Celiac Sprue Association, or CSA, the largest celiac support organization in the United States).  That really resonated with me.  Never before had it occurred to me that I needed to be careful about the lotions, etc. that I used on my gluten intolerant daughter’s skin, but it made so much sense.  Our skin is our largest organ…of course it matters what we put on it!!!

Flash forward to this year’s expo and in my opinion, Hugo Naturals once again had the most gorgeous booth in the entire expo.  Hugo walked me around the booth and showed me the amazing soap carvings that had been and were being made before my eyes…gorgeous!

I enjoy their products so much that I regularly give them as gifts to my nearest and dearest girlfriends.  Hugo’s fizzy bath bombs are out of this world.  Besides the fact that I thoroughly enjoy their products, I feel good about purchasing them because their entire product line is vegan, and is also certified cruelty-free by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Ingredients ( Hugo Naturals has also completely removed soy (and gluten) from their recipes.

Hugo Naturals has very graciously offered to provide a wonderful giveaway to one lucky Chic Vegan reader.

    Are things like dark circles under your eyes hereditary and if so, what are some things that I could do to reduce its awful potency?

    Hello there!
    Thank you for this opportunity to enter such a fun contest.

    – I Like Chic Vegan on Facebook.- I Follow Chic Vegan on Twitter.- I Follow Hugo Naturals on Twitter.- My question for Julieanna Hever: Julieanna, I am confused about the best/healthiest oils to use in my cooking. Olive oil is the one I see most often. But I’m starting to see grapeseed and coconut oils more and more. Do they matter in cooking, or is one more beneficial than the other? Thank you! 🙂

    I have fallen in love with Hugo Natural’s products. I bought the rose soap for my daughter and she loves it, now she actually wants to wash her hands. I am pretty sure she likes it cause it’s pink and smells girly, but I love it cause it is so creamy and makes my hands feel amazing.
