7 Balm {Giveaway}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I am a lip gloss/lip balm addict. I literally cannot go ANYWHERE without balm on my lips and a tube in my purse. Nothing annoys me more than having dry, cracked lips. I have tried almost every kind of balm, gloss, cream and stick out there, but I’m always trying something new to see if I can find the ultimate lip balm. And now, Seven Balm Organic Lip Balm is definitely on the top of my list!

7 Balm comes from a line of products made from Manuka honey, a type of honey native to New Zealand and southeastern Australia that is known to have many medicinal, healing properties. Seven’s line of products includes a Skin Healing and Moisturizing Ointment, and a Moisturizing Soap. All of Seven’s products use Certified Organic ingredients, have no colorants, preservatives, fragrances or fillers. This is stuff you can feel good about using!

7 Balm Organic Lip Balm is chock full of goodness. Along with the Manuka Honey, it has eight healing oils (why they didn’t stop at seven is beyond me…) and 94% Certified Organic ingredients. It is made in Canada, so you know the ingredients are coming from a good place, and the square tin contains more than twice as much as a standard tube of lip balm!

It has no flavoring or fragrance, which, while I know is better for me, is kind of a let-down because I do like a good flavor on my lips. But the feel of it on my lips is wonderful–soft, creamy, smooth and healing.  It’s not sticky and leaves my lips feeling smooth for hours after the first application. I’ve only used it as a lip balm, but other customers have used it for diaper rash, eczema and cold sores and reported positive results. Think of the uses! I don’t think I’ll use it anywhere else, though, because I enjoy the pretty shine it leaves on my lips too much to use it anywhere else 🙂

7 Lip Balm and the other 7 Products can be purchased online. The Lip Balm is $9.75, the Cream is $24.95 and the Soap is $14.95, but you can buy all three products for only $45–pretty reasonable prices for high quality, organic ingredients. But if you’re lucky, you can win a tin of 7 Lip Balm for free!

We just got back from the Midwest where we were celebrating birthdays, eating Kansas City barbecue (the best!), and spending time with lots of family.  In the middle of all of that, though, we ran into a couple of nasty storms and were a little concerned that our flights might be delayed.  Well, we didn’t have any problems with our flights and, in fact, we stepped off the plane here in North Carolina to gorgeous 70 degree weather at 7:00 p.m. in the evening!  The weather for our area shows that same 70 degree weather for the next 10 days, so I switched out the boys’ winter clothes for spring/summer clothes this evening and have officially welcomed spring!

After living in the California desert for three years, I have most enjoyed the scents that are associated with spring as the weather changes here in North Carolina.  I love the flowers blooming and the abundance of different fruits, which bring such amazing scents into my house and every time I step outside. When I discovered Daisy Natural Skin Care, I was most drawn to the variety of scents that are available for the skin care Jean Marie creates.  Scents like Tahitian Vanilla, Lavender, and Tangerine Grapefruit are in perfect tandem with the springtime season!

main

Daisy Natural Skin Care offers handcrafted soaps, body butters, balms, and scrubs. Our products are made from high quality ingredients that are good for your skin. We promise to avoid “chemicals of concern” as defined by The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics (safecosmetics.org). We never test on animals (we love our pets!), and we only buy raw materials from suppliers who pledge the same.  We also offer vegan and fragrance free items.”

I was sent a few items to review, and I have loved every single one of them.  As soon as the package arrived on my doorstep, I opened each of the products just to smell the scents and then placed each item strategically around my house for use.

 almond

Ever since I was in about the seventh grade, I have always had some sort of lip balm in my pocket, backpack, or purse for my incredibly dry and chapped lips.  I placed my tube of Almond Lip Balm on my nightstand for quick use after brushing my teeth and right before going to bed.  The lip balm applies easily and isn’t waxy, and the scent isn’t overbearing.  This lip balm costs $3, which is incredibly reasonable!

butter

I used body butter for the first time when I was in a store in the mall about 10 years, and I remember thinking that the product could not have been more correctly named – it feels just like butter!  This Moonlight Pomegranate Whipped Avocado Butter is thick and smooth, and I have loved using this on my arms and legs just after jumping out of the shower.  I keep it in my bathroom vanity and have been known to sneak in throughout the day to put some on my hands, if not for the soothing cream then for the amazing scent.  Even better, this body butter is offered for only $9!

tangerine

This Tangerine Grapefruit Shea Butter Soap could not be more perfect for spring!  The scent leans toward a more subdued citrus and  isn’t too “fruity” at all.  The ridges on the bar were perfect for my feet in the bathtub, and I loved the subtle but noticeable scent that lingered on my skin throughout the day.  The soaps from Daisy Natural Skin Care only cost $6.50 and have already lasted me a couple of weeks with lots of use left.

vanilla

This Tahitian Vanilla Lotion Stick, though, has been my favorite skin care product, hands down.  I put it in my purse and didn’t think much more about it until I was sitting in the airport (without my liquids) and needed something for my hands.  I pulled this out, and it couldn’t have been easier to apply!  The stick (similar to lip balm in its application) is creamy and doesn’t flake apart, and the scent was also my favorite of the products I received.  I agree wholeheartedly with the description for the scent:  “Tahitian Vanilla is a light, floral scent, with a hint of sweetness. It doesn’t have that sickly sweet smell that a lot of vanilla products have, so those of you who aren’t into the baked good scents may want to give this one a try.”  These lotion sticks come in a variety of scents and only cost $7!

Daisy Natural Skin Care is offering special coupon code for Dandy readers!  The code DANDY15 is good for 15% off $15 or more and will be available through 05/11/13!

Daisy Natural Skin Care is also offering a gift set (soap, body butter, and lip balm) for a giveaway to our Dandy readers!  The soap and the body butter will be the same scent, and the choices are White Ginger & Amber, Tahitian Vanilla, Moonlight Pomegranate, Chai Tea, Sweet Pea, Lavender, or Fragrance Free. The lip balm choices are Plain, French Vanilla, and Almond.

Head over to Daisy Natural Skin Care to find your favorite products and scents, then come back here and enter to win!

Goat Milk Stuff {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Hands down, the best ice cream I’ve ever had comes from a Jersey cow dairy farm back home.  Hands down, the best soap I’ve tried is made from Alpine goat milk and comes from a store called Goat Milk Stuff!

logo

Goat Milk Stuff is run by the Jones family, and they milk their own Alpine goats for the freshest, most pure goat milk.  They are not fed any antibiotics or growth hormones, so there is nothing unnatural passed into their milk.  This makes their soaps natural and safe for all skin types, including babies, and people with dry skin, sensitive skin, eczema, psoriasis, acne, or rosacea.  And boy, aren’t they beautiful?!

IMG_4080

I was anticipating the soaps arriving last week, and as soon as the mailman handed me the box, I could smell the soaps before I even saw who the box was from!  Oh what glorious scents!  To me, the smell of a product is the first thing I fall in love with!

Oh, I didn’t want to use them!  I wanted to have them sit on my bathroom shelf and continue to smell up my bathroom!  After only taking the soaps out of their cute bags and arranging them for this picture, I already had that delicious after-you-peel-an-orange-smell type of lingering aroma all over my hands, and I immediately wanted to jump in the shower so I could use them!IMG_1908

I picked out three soaps to review, and each have become an instant favorite.

Kool Koala: This soap has an aqua swirl with eucalyptus, peppermint, and spearmint essential oils.  It doesn’t smell like a minty toothpaste, but rather the smell of a new pack of gum, all over you, and as fresh as can be.  This one is a favorite of mine in the mornings after working out at the gym.

Pink Sugary: This one is sweet and rich.  “Sugary” is great name for it.  After using it, I smell like I dripped a sweet glaze all over me!  The color is so rich; it looks like a bar of something delicious, and should probably be kept out of reach of children!

Pomegranate Lemonade:  The tangy scent is delicious!  I think this will be a favorite in the summertime for me.  Nice and sweet, pretty and fruity, and with a nice pale pink lather.

IMG_1911

The lingering smells are so strong!  I barely lather up with these bars, and the scent is so intense all over my body for several hours!  Mmm!  Just by keeping these on a shelf in the bathroom, the smell has filled that whole part of the house and I love walking by and anticipating the next time I can use these soaps again.

Honey Lip BalmI also got to try the honey scented lip balm from Goat Milk Stuff.  The more I use and buy chapsticks and lip balms, I’m becoming more particular about my choices.  The cheapy stuff almost makes my lips feel worse and I have to use more and more of it.   This balm is very natural in color, flavor, and ingredients.  You can’t get more natural than honey.  Get this: the ingredients listed are soybean oil, beeswax, sunflower seed oil, cocoa buuter, shea oil, vitamin E, and flavor oil.  I love having something so pure and natural on my lips.

Have you visited Goat Milk Stuff and picked out the soaps and lip balms you’d like to try??  They also carry laundry soap, lotions, and candles!  And I just noticed two new soap flavors released as special editions for Valentine’s Day: chocolate and raspberry truffle!!

One winner will receive a $25 Goat Milk Stuff gift certificate!
