I’m excited to be participating in the Dreaming of a Green Christmas Giveaway Bash this week along with several other green bloggers. We’ll be giving you the opportunity to win green Christmas gifts for your family, friends, or yourself! Be sure to check out the other great giveaways at the end of this post.
Today’s giveaway comes to you from MadeOn Hard Lotion.
MadeOn’s Hard Lotion bars are made with three simple ingredients: beeswax, coconut oil, and Shea or Cocoa butter (depending on the bar). They are all-natural and they work!
Excellent for dry skin, rough elbows, and seasonal eczema, these bars are simple and easy to use; just rub it on your skin. They are also a cinch to make (more on that in a minute).
Each product from MadeOn shows the date it was made on (hence the name). In fact, the products I tried were less than a month old!
The owner, Renee Harris, sent me an Au Chocolate gift set and her Gift-Giving e-book to try. I loved them both and she has generously offered to give away the same set and e-book to one of you!
The Au Chocolate Gift pack comes with:
- 1 family size hard lotion bar (2 oz)
- 1 pocket size hard lotion bar (.71 oz)
- 1 lip balm
- Packaged in muslin tote bag
Here’s a little more information about each item:
The Family-size Au Chocolate Lotion Bar is perfect for keeping in your purse, the kitchen drawer, or bedside table. It is quite large and will last a very long time.
It has a lovely chocolate scent that is not over-powering, yet still noticeable. Almost every time I used my lotion bar in public, someone would say, “Mmm, chocolate, That smells so good!”
The pocket size Au Chocolate bar is wonderful to keep in my purse and perfect for my toddler to use. This little bar will last a long time. I’ve used mine lot and it is practically the same size as when I got it. This would be an excellent stocking stuffer.
I found the Peppermint Lip Balm to be very refreshing and effective. I loved the smell.
It is wonderful to know that these products are made with care and that they contain simple, nourishing ingredients.
If you are like me and want to try your hand at making your own products, you are going to LOVE the e-book. I’m so happy Renee offered to include this in the giveaway, beacuse I know many of you are just as crazy about D.I.Y as I am!
The My Buttered Life – Gift-Giving eBook is AWESOME!
- Five skin care recipes: chocolate body mousse, flavored lip balms, chocolate peppermint lotion bars, scented & shaped lotion bars, and beeswax candles
- Each with five ingredients or less
- Instructional videos
- Cost analysis
- Where to Buy ingredients page
- Quality natural oils and butters
I had fun making the chocolate peppermint lotion bars and lip balm. In fact, I made a bunch of the lip balms and gave them out at the Relevant Conference. (If you liked them, then you’ll want this ebook so you can make your own! It’s easy. I promise).
I’ll be trying the candles next.
All of the recipes include very clear, easy-to-follow instructions. Most of the products are very quick to make and are suitable for involving kids.
You will love this book.
If you don’t win, or don’t want to wait, I highly recommend you add this to your D.I.Y collection (It’s only $5). Also check out her D.I.Y kit that comes with a free eBook download.
