Last month I started following a blog, tryvermontfirst.com, because of a giveaway Honi, the author, was doing. What is awesome about this blog is that Honi gives away products from Vermont companies! I can't remember what giveaway brought me to the blog, but I have since entered a few giveaways never expecting to win anything.
Then, I got an email on my birthday (last month) saying that I was one of three winners for the Honest Simple Soap package! That was an awesome birthday surprise!
The package didn't take long at all to come. In it I found a handcrafted soap, beeswax lotion, bath scrub, a fizzy bath bomb, and a thank you card! I become an instant fan of companies that include a thank you card or a hand written note.
What I love about the four products that I received is that they are all naturally made. You will not find those harmful chemicals that are in drug-store soaps and lotions. That's been on my mind a lot lately. There are so many chemicals in the food we eat and in our daily lives that bombard our body, that it's a relief to find a product that isn't adding more.
I've tried the soap and the lotion and looove them. I now carry the beeswax lotion in my purse so I can have it at all times. I have yet to try the salt scrub and bath bomb, but have a feeling I'll love those as well. In fact, I can't wait to order something in the Vanilla Chai Tea or Orange Cream scents. Mojito would not have been my first choice, but I am liking it anyway!
