On the first day of Christmas, we're teaming up with S.W. Basics of Brooklyn to share a natural skincare product that has only three simple ingredients! Enter today's giveaway for your chance to win the the signature S.W. Basics Cream

This cream is heavenly. It combines wild-harvested shea butter, extra virgin coconut oil, and extra virgin olive oil, and smells like a delicious mixture of the three. It's super hydrating and perfect for dry skin, helping you moisturize during these winter months. The cream can be used anywhere: face, hands, elbows, feet, lips and even hair!

Like Slender Seven, S.W. Basics is committed to its philosophy that ingredients are everything. All of the products are completely natural and formulated with 5 ingredients or less, meaning the brand is selective about what goes into each product. There are no fillers, fluff, or fragrance to dilute each product's potency.

S.W. Basics believes that you should be as discerning about what you put on your body as what you put in your body and therefore adhere to a food-centric philosophy: What's good to eat is good for your skin, too. If you're eliminating chemicals, additives, and preservatives in your food, why are you lathering them on your skin?
