Health Is Beauty

Eco Chick Giveaway: CV Skinlabs' Non-Toxic Skincare Products by Britta Aragon


My skin is super sensitive, but it kind of seems as though everyone’s is these days. According to The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 80 percent of skin reactions are caused by direct contact with an irritating, harsh or dangerous chemical. And we all know that there’s no shortage of beauty and skincare products filled with those. Then, when we experience skin conditions, we often try to combat the irritation with products that are just making everything worse. It’s a vicious cycle.

Meet CV skinlabs, a brand new, non-toxic range of products for face and body designed to soothe and repair sensitive and fragile skin without harmful chemicals. The collection was created by cancer survivor, safe cosmetics expert, Cinco Vidas founder, and all-around wellness warrior, Britta Aragon, who composed a dedicated team of doctors and organic chemists to help her formulate the collection.

Designed for women and men, each and every CV skinlabs product contains only bio-compatible, natural and/or organic ingredients, plus Tri-Rescue Complex — a proprietary blend of tumeric, bisabotol and reishi mushroom. This exclusive cocktail formulated by Britta and her team, provides anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antihistamine, and calming benefits to skin. Each products is 100 percent free of synthetic fragrance, dyes, parabens, formaldehyde, phthalates, silicones and all of the other icky stuff found in most beauty products. CV skinlabs’ products were toxicologist-screened for carcinogens, xenoestrogens and other potentially harmful ingredients so you can apply with peace of mind.

These products are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Trust me. I’ve been using CV skinlabs daily for nearly two months now, and my skin has never felt better.

After I shower, I apply the Calming Moisture lotion to my face.


The Body Repair Lotion glides onto the rest of my body and feels so soothing.


I spritz my face with the incredibly refreshing Rescue + Relief Spray when I feel my skin is irritated or needs a pick-me-up. Britta suggested that I keep it in the fridge.


I dab a tiny amount of the Restorative Skin Balm around my eyes at night, or I’ll put it on my lips if they’re feeling chapped.
