From our friends


  1. This sounds wonderful! My 3 purchases would be May Lindstrom’s Youth Dew and Clean Dirt that I’ve been wanting to try as well as Cream Blkush from Kjaer Weis.

  2. I wish I could be in New York for this! I’d have such a hard time choosing just 3 items, though.:-) I’d probably go for May Lindstrom’s The Clean Dirt and The Youth Dew, both of which I’ve been wanting to try forever, plus one of the new Ilia lip crayons.

    Mrs. Z | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  3. SW Basics has the most amazing lip balms so I want to see what else they offer. I’ve also been keeping my eye on Ilia Beauty and Revolution Organics. I see lipsticks in my future!

  4. I hope I win this giveaway! My 3 would be Modern Radiance Concentrate from La Bella Figura, Kahine’s Eye Creme, and any of Ilia’s new lipstick crayons. Thank you Chalkboard.

  5. Such a hard choice!! I ran out of May Lindstrom’s Clean Dirt and desperately miss it so that would be at the top of my list, along with Vered’s Balancing Oil, which I have been wanting to try, and Ilia’s Sway Illuminator! So, so sad I can’t be there…I hear May is unveiling one of her newest skin treats and I wish I could be there to experience it!

    Jessica | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  6. That’s a hard one. I have been wanted to try May Lindstrom’s Problem Solver. La Bella Figura Bohemia Verde Aromatic Hair Elixir, and One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye cream. Also, I really wish I could go to this event. What a cool idea!

    Jenny | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  7. Oh my gosh I have so many wish list items but I’d narrow it down to May Lindstrom Problem Solver, La Bella Figura fig seed oil and Kahina Toning Mist 🙂

    Samantha | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  8. For me, the development of the green luxury beauty industry is the best thing that happened during this century! A true revolution that has empowered women by not having to compromise health for glamour. After reading the interview with La Bella Figura on the Chalkboard, I am eager to try the Barbary Fig Renewal serum. Then, I would restock on The Good Stuff radiance oil by may lindstrom, (she calls it “liquid sunshine”), and Vered le chocolate citrus foaming scrub, which smells absolutly divine and leave skin sooo soft!

    Laetitia Boswell | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  9. What an amazing way to try some amazing products! I have recently (slowly but surely) been transforming my beauty routine to all organic/chemical free products so I would have to pick LURK perfume oil in PRJV1 (they have a beautiful webpage:), Ilia lipstick in Femme Fatale (who wouldn’t want a lipstick with such a sexy name), and Kjaer Wei’s cream blush in the shade of Lovely–mostly because I am too poor to afford such a luxurious looking blush:(


    Natalie Johnston | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  10. My 3 must haves or at least my top 3-May Lindstrom’s The Youth Dew-I hope it makes me look like her ;), One Love Organics Easy Does It and Kahina Antioxidant Mask. Thank you for doing this giveaway!

    Emma | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  11. This event IS my dream come true and I couldn’t be prouder that green beauty finally has a presence at such an important industry and societal event. Three products I would have snapped up at the event would have to be: La Bella Figura Modern Radiance Concentrate, Kjaer Weis cream blush in Lovely and Lina Hanson Global Face Serum. Thanks for thinking about those of us who couldn’t be there!


    Sonja | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  12. I would definitely pick up the Modern Radiance Concentrate from La Bella Figura. Then the Kahina Serum I have been wanting to try and the Signature perfume by Vered. Then I would beg Kahina for a sample of the new body oil and try to convince May to let me try her Honey Mud Cleanser that I have heard so much about already.

    Julia | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  13. My 3 faves would be CV Skinlabs Body Repair Lotion and Rescue + Relief Spray (the perfect after-shaving kit!), then I’d try one of the lip products from Ilia Beauty. But I imagine I’d have a hard time limiting it to three! Great event to increase exposure for these clean brands. 🙂

    Colleen | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  14. I would LOVE to try La Bella Figura Modern Radiance Concentrate, Lina Hanson face serum and Dr Alkaitis Organic Body Wash.

    Tiffany | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  15. I’m so excited about all of these products, but the ones I have been wanting to try the most are: May Lindstrom’s The Clean Dirt, Vered Body Oil Signature Scent, and Dr Alkaitis Organic Purifying Facial Cleanser.

  16. I’d love to try Lurk BS 003, Kjaer Weis mascara, and La Bella Figura Modern Radiance!

    Robin | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  17. I love CV Skinlabs products so would definitely choose their Rescue & Relief Spray and their Body Repair Lotion -amazing products!! Would also love to try May Lindstrom’s Clean Dirt. Thanks so much!!

    Abigail | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  18. I love CVSkinlabs product. You have to try the cure All Balm and the Rescue and Relief spray. My akin has never looked better. PLUS they have no nasty chemicals. At all. Worth trying.

    Lizza | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  19. I love the CV Skinlabs. Definitely try the skin balm!

    Patty | 09.04.2013 | Reply
    • I am in love with CVLabs skin balm. I look years younger from using it just for a little over a month. People keep asking if I’m 25 (I’m 36). Love it.

      Stephanie | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  20. CV Skinlabs Rescue and Relief spray is AMAZING. I have used it when sunburned and it immediately brought a cooling relief. Better than Aloe Vera!!

    Eduardo | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  21. If I were at tonight’s event I would like to buy the Kjaer Weis mascara, the Lina Hanson global face serum, and a Ilia Beauty lip crayon. I have heard great things about them all. I didn’t know this green beauty event was on tonight, or I would have planned to go.

    Sara | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  22. Oooooh it would be so much fun to be at the event tonight! If I were there, I would buy One Love Organics Brand New Day scub/masque, Tela’s volume boosting shampoo, and Hope Gillerman’s True Relaxation Stress Remedy! Enjoy the night! 🙂

    Laura | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  23. If I were able to attend tonight’s event I would LOVE to try the Kjaer Weis mascara, the Ilia Beauty “I Put a Spell on You Multi-Stick” and the La Bella Figura Découverte Under Eye Repair Serum. Hope the event is fun!!

    Jen Lucas | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  24. Soooo wish I could be there! These products are amazing! I wish I could try them all! But if I had to narrow down to three… La Bella Figura’s Bio Active Purifying Mask, May Lindstrom’s Clean Dirt Cleansing Clay, and Hope Gillerman’s True Relaxation Muscle Remedy

    Jenn | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  25. I will be watching from afar in Seattle, but my top 3 would be of course anything from May Lindstrom- I’ve been dreaming of her products ever since you featured them! The Revolution Organics Beauty Balm for on the go, and the Kjær Weis Lip Tint Compact. Tough choices because I love everything! So jealous, wish I could be there.

    Lauren | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  26. Wish I could be there…so many amazing brands. I’d get the OLO Elizabeth Dehn spritz, Kjaer Weis mascara because I keep hearing such raves and an Ilia lipstick – the shades always look so pretty.

    Linda | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  27. I love CV Skinlabs and my 3 faves are Body Repair Cream, Restorative Skin Balm, and Calming Moisture. I especially love the Restorative Skin Balm because it is great for my cuticles and lips. I can’t live without it.

    Tracey | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  28. ohhh i so wish i could be there – instead i’m keeping track on twitter & reading sites like the chalkboard:-). i’d love to try the new kjaer weis mascara, anything from may lindstorm (i’m reading about a new cleanser and very curious to try it!) and la bella figura modern radiance concentrate (SO hard to choose 3!). thanks for the chance to win.

  29. Ah!! So hard to choose! Living in a small, farm town in Missouri, I rely heavily on your site to give me advice and suggestions for EVERYTHING from what I put in my mouth to what I put on my skin. I found your site out of desperation for helping a mystery diagnosis of Grover’s disease-my skin has never been so inflamed and terrible. Through you, I discovered I love May Lindstrom’s Clean the Dirt and Problem Solver, but haven’t had the chance to snag the Youth Dew–that’s my number 1! Also, Vered Body Oil Signature Scent as 2, and I’d love to try CVSkinlabs Balm to help calm this madness I’ve been dealing with for 8 months 🙁

    Jessica | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  30. I LOVE CV Skinlabs Calming Moisture which I’ve used for 1 yr and it’s changed the texture of my skin.
    I no longer have Rosacea bec this product is so healing!!!! My sister is now using the Calming Moisture
    bec she sees how good my skin looks since I’ve been using it. I also love CV Skinlabs Restorative Skin Balm
    and want to try the Rescue and Relief Spray.

  31. The 3 products that I have been lusting over more months and would want to test and purchase are May Lindstrom’s Clean Dirt and Youth Dew and Dr. Alkalaitis under eye cream. I really wished I lived in NYC to be at the event. Have on in LA! May’s products have gotten such good reviews and I have problem skin. I had a Dr. Alkalatis sample kit and loved it all but want to try the under eye cream for longer.

    Tricia | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  32. I definitely want to try Ilia’s new lip crayon, ANYTHING by May Lindstrom and the Kahina Argan Oil. :o) If only I didn’t live across the country!

    Lara | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  33. I would love Kahina Living Beauty 100% Organic Argan Oil, One Love Organics Skin Savior Waterless Multi-Balm and one (or more) of the new Ilia Lipstick Crayons!

    Donna F. | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  34. 1. Kjaer Weis Cream Blush to wake up my complexion
    2. Tela Organics Color Lock Anti-Color Fade Serum to keep my hair color radiant
    3. May Lindstrom The Youth Dew to keep my skin looking amazing

    Adele | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  35. Wish I was there! Many wonderful products. I’ve always wanted to try La Bella Figura Decouverte under eye serum, and Lina Hanson’s Global Body Serum sounds lovely. And I’ve always wanted to try Ilia’s lipsticks!

    Rose | 09.04.2013 | Reply
  36. As a recently retired school teacher, I have found the time to read your great blog and am also finding the time to take care of myself. Hearing about all the great skin care lines and their creators makes me remember about receiving a “wish book” before the holidays and lusting for items from afar.
    For my three items I would have you (the experts) choose 3 anti aging items that would start me on my path to “glow” and be healthy.
    Great job with the blog!!

    Rita giannini | 09.05.2013 | Reply
  37. As a blogger on the go, I love products that can multitask! And my picks would be Ilia Beauty’s Lipstick Crayons (love the shade Call Me) Joanna Vargas Exfoliating Mask and the Freedom Gloss in Freedom Red by Revolution Organics! Love them all!

  38. Sooooo hard to choose among so many great ones, but if I HAD to – I would love to pick up the ILIA beauty Karma Chameleon lip pencil, Kjaer Weiss eyeshadow in Wisdom, and Dr. Alkailitis Organic Night Cream.

    Cori | 09.05.2013 | Reply
  39. I would purchase Hope Gillerman Flowers Face Balm, One Love Organics Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser, and Lurk PRJV1 perfume.

    CharityS | 09.05.2013 | Reply
  40. I would buy the Dr Alkaitis Cleanser – the best cleanser in the whole world, I literally would not know what to do if they stopped making this (!), Kahina Giving Argan Oil to nourish my skin and Lurk Perfume Oil PRJ V1 – I love Jasmine and Rose – this would be my dream scent.

    kate | 09.06.2013 | Reply
  41. First on my list is a no brainer: May Lindstrom’s Problem Solver, of course! Then I would likely reach for La Bella Figura’s Rainforst Hydration Treatment along with May Lindstrom’s Youth Dew to ward off dry skin as the season changes.

    Tess | 09.06.2013 | Reply
  42. Regretfully, I didn’t make it to this event, but if I was there I would buy the following 3 products!

    Illia Beauty – Wild Child Lipstick (I wouldn’t a Tinted Lip Conditioner to go with it 😉
    It’s guaranteed that what we put on our lips we’ll end up licking off. I love the idea that the Illia Beauty lip products are totally lick-able!

    Kahina Eye Cream ( gotta get the Kahina Eye Serum to go with it)
    I have the darkest under eyes EVER (got it from my momma). I’m always on the look out for a good eye cream or serum to minimize the dark circles and reduce puffiness. I heard this cream does the trick and have been wanting to try it!

    Hope Gillerman – Clear mind jaw clenching remedy – Lately I’ve been clenching my jaw in my sleep and waking up with awful headaches.This remedy sounds much more attractive then the mouth guard from the dentist.. Who doesn’t love a “Home” remedy?!

    ps. I’m loving all the content on the pressed website. Very inspiring!

    pss. Natalia Rose is AMAZING!
