Cruelty-free Tattoo Aftercare Review and Giveaway

June 28, 2010By 24 Comments

All right tatted beauties, y’all are going to love this giveaway from Stay True Organics! Heck, even if you’re not sporting any ink (yet), you’ll be able to enjoy these products, too!

Although I don’t have any tattoos at the moment (but I’m determined to get one before the year’s end), I became smitten with Stay True Organics’ fabulous skin care products.

vegan, organic tattoo balm and wash

Colorfast Healing & Conditioning Balm and Fresh Ink Healing Wash

The creamy, gentle Fresh Ink Healing Wash ($9) contains tamanu oil (which is a time-honored wound healer), potent anti-microbial herbs like neem and rosemary and calming comfrey root and the petals of several anti-inflammatory, organic flowers. I’ve been using this as a face wash at night and it totally leaves my skin mosturized and soft. The beautiful lavender scent is so relaxing and is perfect right before beddies. When it is time to finally get some ink, there is no doubt in my mind that I’m going to use these products to help my skin heal.

I also tried the Colorfast Healing & Conditioning Balm ($22), which is meant to heal tattoos faster while maintaining their clarity and color (it revitalizes old tattoos, too!). This balm calms sensitive skin, moisturizes, reduces inflammation, relieves itching, reduces the risk of infection, and minimizes scabbing. It contains Jojoba Oil; Candelilla Wax; Pumpkin Seed Oil; Apricot; Kernel Oil; Rosehip Seed Oil; Red Raspberry Seed Oil; Shea Butter; flowers; herbs and essential oils, making this balm extremely versatile. I’ve been using it on my elbows and knees, my hands, my lips… it glides on so smoothly and makes me skin feel divine. This is an excellent skin hydrator that will smooth and protect dry, chapped, or sensitive skin and can be used safely from head to toe on a daily basis. It has a delicate chamomile scent which is absolutely lovely. I wish I there was a scratch-n-sniff screen option so I could share these beautiful scents with you.

For your chance to win the Stay True Organics Fresh Ink Healing Wash and Colorfast Healing & Conditioning Balm set, simply leave a comment with your dream tattoo. A winner will be randomly selected and announced on July 9th. Good luck!!!

*UPDATE* Winner of the Stay True Organics Fresh Ink Healing Wash and Colorfast Healing & Conditioning Balm set is Dayna! Congrats!

    I have rosacea on the face (redness) and today I received my Zenmed skin support system. I just wanted to tell you about my beginning of the treatment process. I will inform you later about the results.

  2. Jen says:

    Been dreaming of a giant Phoenix to cover up some ‘skinperfections’ I have now that I’ve lost a bucketload of weight 🙂

  3. Aldo Camacho says:

    My dream tattoo is the next one im getting! 🙂

  4. Jessica says:

    My dream tattoo is a cat!

  5. Angel says:

    I’m getting my dream tattoo in two weeks so this would be killer! Two skulls and crossbones on my shoulders and in an old timey script “never say die” across my chest. A nod to The Goonies :]

  6. Dayna says:

    I already have a few smallish tattoos, but I’d love to get a full, abstract back piece by Amanda Wachob some day.

  7. Lauren says:

    I am getting a tribute tattoo for my parents on the back of my neck this Friday. Perfect if I win this awesome healing balm!

  8. Megan Hall says:

    I NEED this stuff!! Getting my tattoo colored in a few weeks and this would help my uber sensative skin.

    As for my dream tattoo, it was a knitting and craft related chest piece, but since I already have that, I would say a Princess Leia (in slave garb) pin-up! Yup, I’m a giant Star Wars nerd!

  9. HD says:

    I already have a slew of tattoos, but my dream would be to finish up my right arm with more animals!

  10. Lisa Zoesch says:

    My dream tatoo is a poppie intertwined with sweet pea flowers just over my heart. These are the birth flowers of my two daughters, nicknamed “Sweet Pea” and “Poppie Girl.”

  11. Joshua Bundy says:

    My dream tattoo would be a scene from the end of the world!

  12. Lowen says:

    I’ve got a tiny little heart on my shoulder already….but I would love to get a fox tattooed on my forearm- I love Kristofferson Silverfox for The Fantastic Mr. Fox. I wouldn’t mind having his likeness on me somewhere. 🙂

  13. Francisco says:

    “No Lies”, on my right wrist and “Just Love” on my left wrist! I want to get it soon!

  14. Christine says:

    My dream (and first) tattoo would be to get the paw prints in memory of my first pet rattie who passed 4 years ago. I really want to get it on my foot, because when he wanted to be picked up and cuddled, that’s where he would run to. And perhaps something to also remember each little one that has passed since.

  15. pinktheory says:

    dream tattoo–> a cornucopia of fruits and vegetables spilling down my arm mixed with a variety of flowers, birds and insects.

  16. Nicky says:

    my dream tattoo is a giant waterlily on my back… i’m in the planning stages so this would be perfect!

  17. Jessica says:

    These products look awesome btw!

  18. Jessica says:

    I want a sleeve with bright colors representing my veganism.

  19. Jennifer says:

    I’ve been thinking about getting one little star tattoo in memory of each cat companion I have. So far there would only be one, but somehow, a tattoo seems like an appropriate way to remember all the kitty friends who touched my life.

  20. Evie says:

    I’ve been dying to get a henna-ish leaf on my shoulder blade. My fiance has a pretty sweet tattoo on his back, too ^_^

  21. Sarah says:

    I really want a colorful bird or butterfly!

  22. Melisser says:

    Well, my sleeve was probably what I would consider my dream tattoo, but my next tattoo will be a portrait of my dog, Strummer! I’m also going to get a tribute to my Nana.

  23. Orange Loy says:

    I need this stuff so I can get my tattoo. 🙂

  24. Avistrange says:

    I’ve been brainstorming the design of my next tattoo and it would be awesome to have these products when I actually get the work done.
