Aaaaah Friday! Woot woot! Do you have any exciting weekend plans? Before I tell you mine, I want to say a quick Happy Anniversary to my parents! 38 years and going strong! Anyhow….We’ve got basketball games and then we are headed to the Tile Shop to peruse backsplash tile. I can’t wait! That’s the last major project in the kitchen to be complete, and then I will be ready to reveal it! I don’t think Chris is as excited as I am, but he’s coming anyhow. 🙂 I am considering something along these lines but can’t wait to see them in person. Sunday we don’t have much going on but I plan on spending the evening curled up on the couch watching Superbowl commercials. And maybe some of the game.
Anyhow, I don’t know about where you live but this winter has been much colder and harsher than the past couple winters. I have a feeling it’s like that everywhere. My skin has been taking a toll with dry cracking hands. My shins also get super dry and I have a tendency to scratch in my sleep and wake with scabs. How awesome is that? Yeahnotatall. When Alicia from Eco Natural Soap asked if I would be interested in doing a winter review and giveaway of her products I jumped on the chance. I have worked with them a few times in the past and just love their products- they are effective and all natural.
Here are the products I chose to review (also included was peppermint lip balm but it quickly went right into my purse for handiness upon arrival!).
The coconut milk honey and oatmeal body bar is what I have been using in the shower the past couple of weeks, on my face as well. I can especially notice the difference it is making in my face which feels much softer. The scent is subtle and sweet. As described, the oatmeal is finely ground so you really don’t feel it so much- the soap feels smooth and nice on my skin.
The key lime bath and body bar smells AMAZING! Key lime pie is one of my absolute favorite desserts, and this soap smells perfectly like my favorite dessert- sweet and tart rolled into one! This is a great bar for every day use, so I am saving mine for the less harsh months, if and when they come!
The peppermint paradise exotic butters dry skin balm is a miracle worker on my dry legs. The scent is fresh, and the consistency is perfection. It’s not oily at all, but easy to apply, and the mint feels very cool and soothing on my dry skin. This product is my favorite in this round up! If you suffer from severe dry skin, this balm is healing and feels wonderful.
The organic peppermint lip balm is also minty fresh and healing for dry lips! As soon as this one arrived, I snatched it for every day use in my purse. I find my lips get especially dry after a day of working at Sweet Clover in a cold barn talking to customers all day long. I love to keep this one in my pocket when I am there to keep my lips healthy. In fact, I had it in my pocket when my pants went through the wash, but luckily Chris found it before it went into the dryer and it was safe. Phew!
Finally, the cuticle and nail balm was an extra treat Alicia tossed in for me. I didn’t know how much I needed it… With all of the work I do with my hands I am constantly washing them or washing brushes, exposing my hands to wax and hot water, which damages my skin, especially my cuticles. This balm is easy to apply in a stick form, smells like lemons, and keeps my nails stronger and cuticles softer!
I have honestly loved every product I have used from Eco Natural Soap, and stand behind them. I love their story and philosophy and love that their products are natural. I believe that natural is best for our skin to keep it healthy and balanced. Did you know they also sell cosmetics? I hope you will check them out!
