Arctic Zero Review and Giveaway

I always tell myself I an going to diet, and that never works. I have found it is best for me to just replace junk foods with healthier options whenever possible. I mean healthier versions of the same type of snack. I am not swapping chips for celery.

All too often, it is nearly impossible to find a replacement that tastes good enough to justify the switch, especially when it comes to dessert. I no not want fruit for dessert, nor do I want one tiny bite of something that is sweet.

I had been searching for a dessert I could actually eat(that still tasted like dessert). No luck. Until I tried Arctic Zero.

Arctic Zero is a revolutionary product destined to change the way we indulge in dessert forever.

Each serving of Arctic Zero has only 35 calories! Compared to Ice cream which usually has over 200 per serving. And if you are like me, and one serving is just a drop in the bucket, good news. Each pint is only 150 calories! That is unheard of.

I was so interested, but also a little skeptical at first, and did not have high expectations of the flavor, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Don't get me wrong, this is not as good(in my opinion) as great ice cream, but for the health benefits this offers, it is more than a fair trade off.

This product is dairy free, so it is lactose intolerant friendly.  It is also Gluten Free, Fat Free, Kosher, Non-GMO and Low Glycemic(suitable for type 2 diabetes). In addition, it offers 14g Whey Protein(per pint) and 8g fiber(per pint). It is made with only natural and organic ingredients.

Arctic Zero comes in 8 wonderful flavors.


The most iconic flavor of all frozen desserts. A true classic. Arctic Zero does a great job making such and indulgent flavor, keeps it's appeal without all the fat and calories. This was much better than I thought it would be.

A chocolate lover's dream and perfect for children and adults alike.

Chocolate Peanut Butter:

Like a peanut butter cup, frozen. This flavor is yummy, and the peanut butter and chocolate go so nicely together.

My husband loved this one. After my tasting(for the review), he ate the rest.


Coffee is the flavor I choose most often when buying ice cream.

Arctic Zero's version is very tasty, different than what I am used to of course, but well done and something I enjoy eating. I ate the whole thing in one serving(good thing there is only 150 calories and 0 fat).

Cookies and Cream:

Another of my default ice cream flavors.

This is different than what you are used to from cookie and cream ice cream. It does not have any chunks of cookies in it. Rather the whole pint is infused with the flavor, creating a brown color throughout(looks like chocolate).

It taste more like chocolate and cookies than it does cream as well, but it is really good, and you can tell it is creamier than regular chocolate.

Mint Chocolate Cookie:

While still good, this is probably my least favorite. I just think the flavor needs to be stronger, more minty.

I recommend that if you do try this flavor, you also try another so you get a full impression of Arctic Zero, since I feel the other flavors are even better than this one.


I adore this flavor. I love strawberry ice cream, and this is practically just as good.

Think this variety may be my favorite, and I think it tastes most like it's ice cream counterpart. I think this flavor would be really great for anyone who likes strawberry since you wont even feel like you are loosing any flavor compared to ice cream(just a tad less creamy since to dairy is used).

Vanilla Maple:

I was concerned this would not have a strong enough flavor to taste healthy, but this flavor is actually right along with the strawberry for tasting the most like ice cream in my opinion(although I have never had vanilla maple ice cream).

I love the unique flavor combination, and I love that is something you cannot get from other desserts.

Pumpkin Spice:

I really love pumpkin, so this flavor was a dream. It is up at the top for tasting less healthy and more indulgent. With fall soon upon us, this will be my go to flavor.

I wish I could give arctic Zero Pumpkin Spice to trick or treaters without it melting. Although I don't think I could bring myself to give that much away anyway. I'd hog it all for myself.

Some of the flavors have a slightly odd taste(what I believe may be the chicory root), but they are still yummy, and it is nothing drastic. And in some flavors, I could not notice it at all(Strawberry and Vanilla Maple for example).

Since everyone's taste is different, I recommend you try it for yourself, maybe starting with Strawberry, and see what you think. I bet you won't be sorry.

One lucky winner can try all 8 flavors just by entering below. Good luck everyone.

Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil Review and Giveaway

I love just about every kind of beauty product, but I really adore those that are natural and organic.

I always try to find products that are not only good for the planet and good for my skin, but that make my skin look good. Because many times, good for you products still don't make you look your best.

Recently I tried a product that is both. Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil from Sibu Beauty
is a wonderful product.

It contains only 1 ingredient-100% therapeutic-grade, organic sea buckthorn seed oil(which is Fair Trade sourced). All natural and organic skin care. Nature knows best, and this product proves it.

I admit in the beginning I was very nervous about using any kind of oil on my skin as I am prone to breakous, but this porduct is very nice. It did not break me out at all.

You only need a very small amount and it makes your skin feel soft, smooth and nourished. I brightens your skin tone and helps to reduce acne, rosacea and eczema. It also helps to diminish wrinkles.

Even more amazing, this oil also works to treat burns and wounds. I would buy this for that alone. I burn myself semi often and it is awful. Burns are one of the worst pains on the planet.

All of these benefits make for one awesome universal product, but the price makes this even sweeter. I never skimp on cost to get the best for my skin, but when I find something great that is also affordable, it really makes my day.

Ozeri Green Earth Wok Review and Giveaway

I love to cook. I really enjoy trying new recipes and making my cuisine into an activity rather than a chore. But with the wrong equipment, it had begun to feel like a chore much of the time.

I found myself making lesser quality food and opting for faster, more prepackaged options to avoid the hassle of trying to make a recipe work in substandard cookware.

Well recently I had the chance to try a new cookware brand. Ozeri Green Earth. I even tried a cookware piece I had never used before, a Wok.

First of all, I love using a wok. It it so perfect for cooking my of my favorite dished, like stir fry and sauteed shrimp.

I can tell that this Ozeri Green Earth (12in) Wok is really great quality. The non-stick on this product is fantastic, the food did not stick for a second. Also, since it is ceramic(derived from nature) and aluminum, it does not emit any chemicals or contain any heavy metals.

The ceramic coating is also scratch resistant(still use care not to be rough on purpose), and the magnetized base is induction stove safe and promotes rapid heat transfer.

Even when used on medium heat, this heated up way faster and to a higher temperature than my other cookware. And it heated more evenly, no hot spots.

This is even oven safe to 350 degrees(even the handle), so if you want to brown the top of something you don't have to worry about transferring it.\

I've only used this a few times so far, but I am very impressed and am actively looking for more recipes to utilize my wok.

I have made beef stir fry which is wonderful. I've been dying to make it forever, but my regular pans don't do it justice. The Ozeri Green Earth Wok really stepped up to the challenge and helped me make a good recipe into a fantastic meal.

I also made sauteed shrimp with lemon butter(and pasta). I love sauteed shrimp, but once again, my other pans did not cook them to my liking.

Here are the pictures of my lemon butter shrimp. You know your mouth is watering. Don't drool on your computer screen.

Overall, this is a very good quality product that is also very affordable(for the quality). This will last you a very long time and you will get tons of use out of it.

I recommend this to anyone who loves to cook. What a great gift this would be for the culinary genus in your life. And the yummy food they cook can be a gift for you. A win win.

Mediterranean Snack Review and Giveaway

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love to snack. Well I love to eat in general, but I am always trying to find the best tasting, but also the healthiest snacks for myself and my family.

I recently discovered a brand that fits the bill perfectly in both categories. Mediterranean Snacks.

Using the superfood benefits of lentils in combination with whole grains and legumes, Mediterranean Snacks creates unique, healthy and delicious snacks.

Since Mediterranean Snacks products are non-GMO, gluten-free, low fat and high in protein and fiber,they are a snack that you can feel good about. And They taste good enough to be bad for you.

So far, I have tried 5 varieties, and they are all really yummy.

Roasted Red Pepper HummuZ crispz:

My favorite Flavor of hummus is Roasted Red Pepper, so I was drawn to this flavor immediately. It was just as good as I hoped it would be. 

I do wish they flavor was more intense, but that is just me. I dipped these in my RRP hummus and they were even better. If you like red peppers. Give these wonderful crispz a try. You'll love them. 

Olive Tapenade HummuZ Crispz:

I was not sure how I would like this since I am not the biggest fan of  olives, but these were quite tasty. My friend loves olives, and she stole the rest of these from me and devoured them, then she asked if I had any more. At least now I know what I can get her for a hostess gift at her next party.

Olive fans will love this light, crispy crisp. The texture is wonderful, and the flavor is light but distinct.

Sea Salt Baked Lentil Chips:

These chips are light and very crispy. The Sea Salt is subtle, making the chips perfect plain, or with any dip you want to pair them with.

Hummus goes great with these, but I also dipped these in cheesy bacon dip and they were phenomenal(although less healthy of course).

Alone, these chips have 70% less fat that regular potato chips, and a unique flavor that breaks the mold of mundane snacking.

Cracked Pepper Baked Lentil Chips:

All the wonderful light, crispy texture and unique taste with the added kick of black pepper. I love pepper flavored chips and snacks. Simply yet distinctive. This is not your ordinary snack.

These are wonderful topped with fresh tomato slices.

Parmesan Garlic Baked Lentil Chips:

These are so yummy. I love everything Parmesan, and these are no exception. Not by a long shot.

I ate the entire bag without sharing. They are so tasty I did not even think about dipping or topping them, but now can only imagine the wonderful combinations I could have tried.

For a more flavorful variety that is perfect alone, I recommend Parmesan Garlic.

Every flavor is fantastic. These snacks sent my desire for plain potato chips right out the window. Hello great taste AND great waist. I recommend these snacks to anyone wanting a healthier and tastier alternative to the same old potato chips.

One lucky winner can ditch the potato chips by winning their very own mixed case of baked Lentil Chips and Crackers. All you have to do is enter below. 

*Although I received these products at no cost for the purpose of this review, all opinions are my own and may differ from yours.*

TATCHA Skincare Review and Giveaway

Most of my life, I was one of those people that believed that products were basically the same from brand to brand and that price was the only thing that changed.Looking back on that idea now, I feel really silly.

With age, my skin became much harder to care for, so the differences really started to become very clear. My skin can tell the difference between, bad, decent and great products. While it is good that I can now tell the difference, it is awful that I need to. In years past, I could use anything on my skin and it would be fine. Now, one wrong move can be a disaster.

I've tried so many products for my face that I lost count long ago. And many were good, but I had yet to find a product or regimen that was just right. Until now. I tried a new brand or skin care, TATCHA.

TATCHA actually discovered the coveted secret daily regimens of geisha in a 200-year-old manuscript, written in the twilight of Japan’s Edo Period.

TATCHA has worked with teams of scientists, scholars and geisha themselves to decipher the rituals and ingredients from this text.

The result is products that have been tried and true by geisha for centuries. Geisha have always been envied and admired for their natural beauty, and these products are their secret.

Because of the amazing dedication that TATCHA has shown in making such a quality product, now anyone can feel like a geisha.

I tried 5 of TATCHA's wonderful products, and each is equally phenomenal.

The 4 stem system includes:

PURE Camellia One Step Cleansing Oil:

This product is amazing if you have dry skin, and it removes makeup better than any makeup remover I have ever used. All you do is use dry hands to apply and massage your dry face for 20 seconds, and rise. You follow up with your cleanser.

This smells wonderful, and feels amazing while using it. It also made my skind feel soft and smooth for a long time.

POLISHED Rice Enzyme Powder:

There are 3 different varieties of this. Gentle, Classic and Deep. I tried all 3.

I love them all, but my personal favorite is deep, because it helps to clarify skin with more intense cleaning that the others. And since I am very prone to blemishes, I need the clarifying.

Classic is ideal for combination skin(or normal skin).

Gentle is wonderful for sensitive skin since it is Non-irritating, Non-sensitizing and contains Licorice Root to soothe the skin.

I love that every variety cleans gentle and effectively. It felt wonderfully smooth and silky wile using, and my skin looked so nice as soon as I was done using it(many other cleansers actually made it look red or just bad right after cleansing). It gave me a healthy glow.

RADIANT Deep Brightening Serum:

This miracle product makes the skin look more luminous while actually reducing dark spots.

It is light and smooth and feels silky-soft. So wonderful hydrating it could easily be a moisturizer on it's own.

SUPPLE Moisture Rich Silk Cream:

This is the most wonderful lotion I have ever used.

Made with liquid silk, squalane, royal jelly & HADASEI-3 Bioactive Complex, this moisturizer feels luxurious, but feather light and powder smooth.

This one of a kind moisturizer is long lasting and fights wrinkles while hydrating your skin, making it look and feel as smooth as a baby.

This moisturizer is idea for every skin type and a perfect everyday moisturizer and wrinkle cream substitute. It is also flawless under makeup where many others are thick, heavy or greasy.

When used together, these products create a phenomenal end result that looks and feels like having brand new skin. I was deeply surprised with the results. I honestly never thought my skin would be this good again.

And if you every do experience any oil on your skin, TATCHA makes a product to wipe that out instantly, no matter where you are.

PETAL FRESH Original Aburatorigami Blotting Papers:

These All-natural leaflets will absorb excess oil without disturbing makeup for petal fresh skin anytime, anywhere.

I do sometimes get a little oil from the makeup I use, an these squash that. I also use these on my 5 year old(autistic) son whose face get oily but hates washing his face all the time. They are great for him, and he thinks it is wonderful. He ask for them even when they are not needed.

The bottom line is TATCHA is the best skin care line I have ever used. Every product far surpassed my expectations. You can really tell the difference in quality with these products.

You only get one sat of skin, treat it right and make it shine. Try these products for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

One very lucky person will get to try a Sample Set of these products simply by entering the giveaway below. Good Luck.

Java Bites Review and Giveaway

Who doesn't love coffee and dessert? Well what about coffee as dessert? With Java Bites, you get BOTH!

Java Bites are cookies made with bits of real Organic Espresso Beans. So Not only do they taste like coffee, they are made from coffee, and that makes all the difference. Java Bites Cookies are Hand Made and All-Natural. The contain no preservatives and are Trans Fat Free. Even better, Java Bites are a product of the USA.

Each 2 cookie serving(pack) contains only about 100 calories(no more than 107), and they are lower in fat than many sweets(less than 5g per serving), so they are a great alternative to more fattening desserts(or snack) without sacrificing any of the indulgent flavor you crave.
They come in 5 fantastic flavors, so there is something for everyone or ever mood.


This is the Java Bites Signature flavor, and one of my 2 favorites. I love vanilla and white chocolate, so this cookie is perfect for me. I think this is the perfect cookie for almost anyone.

The white chocolate and vanilla flavors are nice and subtle, not a sugar overload like many times they can be. The espresso really makes these cookies pop. These are the perfect blend of dessert and coffee, and the most indulgent(to me) flavor without being overly "desserty" so thye are perfet for a snack or a quick breakfast as well.


This a a new take on a classic. This is the cookie for everyone. Perfect to give as a gift or keep on hand for guests. You can't go wrong with this perfect bled of chocolate chip cookie and rich coffee flavor.

This flavor is tied with White Chocolate Vanilla Latte for my favorite. I am actually not always a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies, but this is a winner. I could eat these every day.


If you are a cinnamon lover like I am, this is the flavor for you. There is a very nice bold cinnamon flavor. It definitely does not get out shined by the espresso. The two flavors compliment each other perfectly.

This, to me, seems like the perfect go to dessert, hostess gift, etc for the holiday season. In my mind cinnamon is the quintessential flavor of the fall and winter months. Even the orange color on the package reminds me of Autumn.


This is the perfect cookie for every true chocolate lover. With the cookie being mocha, every bite is full of rich chocolate flavor. The espresso beans and white chocolate chips turn this already delightful cookie into a heavenly experience.

I am not one to seek out chocolate cookies(or baked goods of any kind), but these are fantastic. I love coffee, so the espresso bits are what really pulls me in.


If you like almond cookies, you have not tasted anything yet. These have a strong almond flavor that is only enhanced by wonderful, rich mocha and bold espresso bits.

I actually liked this flavor the least, but only because the others were so amazing. So even the "worst" Java Bites Cookie is still better than other cookies.

Imagine these crushed over a sundae. Peanuts have nothing on that.

Every Java Bites flavor is nice a crispy-crunchy cookie.. They would be great to actually dip in coffee or milk and would make a nice crunchy ice cream or yogurt topping(topping vanilla yogurt, can you imagine?) Or maybe crushed really fine and made into a pie or cheesecake crust.

The bottom line is Java Bites cookies are delicious, unique and all-natural. What more could you possible ask for?

What? You said you could ask for them to be free? Well if you are one of the 5 lucky winners, you will get your wish. Enter the Rafflecopter below for your chance at one of 5 boxes of Java Bites.

Reviva Labs Review and Giveaway.

Beauty products are some of my favorite things in the world. I love to look good(as good as possible for me), and I need all the help I can get. So when I find a beauty product that really works, I feel it is my duty to share it.

Reviva Labs is a company that offers high quality beauty products that really get the job done. I recently tried 2 of their wonderful products, and I will be back for more without a doubt.

I used Microdermabrasion Pomegranate Scrub

 And it is one of the best facial scrubs I have every used. The scrubbing particles are very fine, but you can still feel them cleaning, and there are lots of them, so they exfoliate evenly.(I've tried others with only a few scrubbers and they just scratched instead of exfoliating)

This worked wonders on my dry, flaking(slightly but enough to ruin makeup) skin. It brightened my skin tone and made my face feel super soft.

Although it is very good at deep cleansing and exfoliating, it is also very gentle, which is wonderful, because exfoliating is pretty worthless if it messes your skin up worse by irritating it. Perfect for those with sensitive skin, but so great it will be loved by all.

I also tried the Makeup Primer.

This product seriously blew me away. It is the best makeup primer I have used to date. It goes on so smoothly and evenly. It feels very light, not heavy, oil, or suffocating. You cannot even tell you have it on.

I used it under makeup(or course) and it actually seemed(to me) to make the makeup feel less heavy on my skin. My face feels clean and naked, which is what you really want from your makeup.

It makes the makeup glide on like a dream, look smooth and natural, feel great while wearing, last all day and it hides my pores(which is no small feat).

Here are the results after using Reviva Labs Makeup Primer.

Compared to how I normally look, this is a really incredible transformation.

I am very happy with both of these products, and look forward to finding some other favorites thanks to Reviva Labs.

If you are looking for a great quality, affordable skin care brand, I strongly recommend Reviva Labs.

One lucky person can try Reviva Labs(the same products I reviewed) just by entering the rafflecopter below. Good Luck.

Green Virgin Products Review and Giveaway.

I have always wanted to tr natural cleaning products and sch, but I was worried that they would not be as good, so I kept putting it off, making an excuse of well I have ti use up this so I don't waste it and I would just keep buying the same old brands.

I finally saw a natural product that really interested me, enough to make me try it.  SOAP NUTS!

The name catches your attention, right. Well the name is just the beginning. Soap nuts are a nut that you use to wash your clothes and replaces not only laundry detergent, but also fabric softener and dryer sheets.

I was curious to say the least, and I had very high hopes, although I will admit, I was a bit skeptical. This product did it job. My son's clothes were clean as a whistle(test number one). I loved being able to clean his clothes without chemicals. Since his do not get super dirty, I thought it would be clean enough, but they were very clean, and soft.

Now the real test came when it was time to do my husband's work clothes. He works in recycling and driving the trucks, so he gets all kinds of messes on him every day, some of which include soda, beer, diesel fuel, oil, and more. Plus, since he is in the sun, he sweats, a lot. And when it rains, his clothes get soaked and smelly. So cleaning his clothes is a very hard task.

I tried the soap nuts thinking I would have to wash them again in regular detergent(but wanting to see how much they could get clean). Well, I was so wrong. Soap nuts got his clothes clean the first time. In fact, they seemed cleaner than they normally are, and they were a lot softer than they were(ever using fabric softener AND dryer sheets together).

The crazy cleaning power alone would be enough to require a switch, but once I noticed the cost difference and realized how much I will save, it is supremely clear that I must have been crazy to not try these sooner.

Green Virgin makes other awesome products as well. 

Once again, the idiot that I am, I was skeptical of one of them. The Mineral Salts Deodorant Stone looked like a wonderful idea, but I was not sure it wold work for me. Well, once again I was wrong. It works! It keeps me feeling clean and even dry, but contains no chemicals fragrance(great for those who cannot wear scent) or dyes. It does not clog your pores or cover up odor. I naturally prevents the. It is wonderful.

And once again, the money this will save is unbelievable. One Mineral Salts Deodorant Stone($5.99) lasts for about a YEAR! I used to spend that or more on deodorant each month.

Soap nut also make a guest appearance in another wonderful product. SOAP! Soap Nuts & Moringa Bar Soap to be exact.

This soap is amazing. It creates a rich, creamy lather that feels like a spa service. And it is made with Peppermint Essential Oils, so it smells like a candy cane(perfect for a holiday stocking stuffer). Not only is the soap amazingly luxurious, but the Moringa has healing powers which is ideal for skin problems such as eczema or psoriasis. And the Shea Butter leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth for hours after use. 

This truly is a soap that is actually good for your skin. So many other soaps are harsh or drying, stealing from your skin, whereas this is giving you the nourishment your skin needs.

One of the better soaps I have used. And weather you are into natural products or not, this is one product you will love.

Green Virgin offers other products as well like all purpose cleaner and Moringa Tea bags. While I've have not tried those products(yet), I am certain they are also of the highest quality. I recommend Green Virgin to anyone looking for natural products, or even great products that do what they are supposed to.

And I am about to make someone's day, because one lucky winner will receive 1 Kilo of soap nuts(enough for 330 loads), 2 Mineral Salts Deodorants, and 2 bars of soap. All you have to do is enter the Rafflecopter below. Good luck.

Perky Jerky Review

I love to eat. I love to snack, but there are times that the standard chips or cookies do not satisfy my craving for something more hearty. I love meat, and often, I just get a craving that noting else can quash.

Well for just a snack, I don't want to have a sandwich or a piece of meat, so I would find myself eating everything else trying to make up for the lack of meat.

Now I have found the perfect snack solutions. Jerky. Well, not just any jerky. Perky Jerky.

 Perky Jerky is available in regular(beef) and turkey varieties. I love that they offer Turky Perky Jerky, since it is such a wonderful option for a differnt flavor, but still the hearty meat taste I crave.

Both varieties are really good. They are nice and tender(but not too soft). They have just the right texture to still feel like you are eating meat, and all the flavor to boot. But Perky Jerky is actually very healthy. It is low in calories(one whole bag of the Turkey Jerky only has 100 calories, and the beef only has 180), high in protein, low fat(or fat free in the case of turkey), low carb, and the low sodium(turkey).

A perfect snack for any occasion, Perky Jerky provides the energy you need to get through a touch workout, a busy day at the office, or in my case, a hard day of motherhood.

The protein helps you stay fuller longer too, so you won't need to dive into other snacks later because you are hungry again, and that can help your waistline, which is always a plus.

I would describe the flavor of both varieties as a Teriyaki flavor. Personally, I am usually drawn more to the plain(tasting) varieties of jerky, but Perky Jerky is really good. I like it just as much as I like the plain of other brands, and even more than other Teriyaki varieties.

I love snacking on something that tastes so great(enough to think it was bad for me), and knowing I am actually eating something way better for me than most of the snacks I used to eat.

If you are a jerky fan, a met fan or a snack fan, I recommend you give Perky Jerky a try. Have a Perky day.

Goat Milk Stuff Review and Giveaway

I am a sucker for every type of beauty and personal care product, and I am often attracted to something that I end up wishing I'd never tried. One of the biggest things that I end up regretting is soap. I am not really a bar soap kinda girl, and yet fun colors, shapes or especially scents draw me in. Usually, the soap makes my skin feel tight and dry and I never use it again. Wasted money, wasted time, end of story.

However, I recently discovered a soap brand that I not only tolerate or mildly enjoy, I love it! Goat Milk Stuff LLC is the best soap company I have tried to date. I had never tried Goat milk soap prior to this, and I never knew what I was missing. This soap is incredible.

Not only does it smell amazing(which is a HUGE selling point for me), it looks very beautiful. Much prettier than any plain old bar soap I've ever used. But those are not the really important features. Goat Milk Stuff Soap cleans very well. It feels so soft and silky while you are using it. But the most outstanding feature is how wonderful your skin feels after washing the soap off.

Every other bar soap I have used felt like it left a residue on my skin. I felt tighter, stickier, dirtier than before I washed myself. That is definitely not what you want in a body cleanser. You want to feel clean. With Goat Milk Stuff, I felt so clean and fresh. Even better, my skin felt super soft and smooth, and it still smelled really great.

As if all these benefits weren't enough to make this product great, Goat Milk Stuff soaps are all natural, and phthalate and paraben free.

All that makes for one awesome company, right? Well they are still no done. The sell a ton of other amazing products as well. Bath Bombs, Gift sets, Laundry Soap, Lip Balms, Lotions, Shaving products, Sugar Scrubs, Soy Candles, and other awesome stuff.

So far, I have been able to try the amazing soaps in 8 amazing scents, a bath fizzy, a lotion stick and a lip balm. The quality of each product has blown me away, and I look forward to working my way through each product.

The scents I have tried so far are:

Pink Sugary

OMH Scrub

Love Spell

Peppermint Essential Oil

Baby Powder

BlackRaspberry (red)
Fiji Island (green)
Ocean (blue)

Lotion Stick in Pink Sugary

Lip Balm in Black Cherry
