My friend Katie contacted me a few months ago about working together on a giveaway for her Etsy Shop, Handmade by LOVEBird. Before I even read her email I knew immediately that I was in! Katie and I met in high school and since then she has opened an amazing online handmade soap shop. I was just a regular customer for a while, not only do I love supporting small handmade businesses but, her stuff sounded amazing. So I tried a few things out long before this review :)
I was so amazed by her products! If you know me personally, you would know I have very sensitive skin. I can break out in weird bumps from just about anything. Also, I have a very very good sense of smell and because of that, highly fragranced soaps and lotions don’t sit well with me. I also can’t use sweet lip balms and lotions. I sound super low-maintenance right? I am obsessed with the lavender mint and of course my kids are obsessed with the chocolate mint lip balm!
The LOVEBirds Soaps are so natural and fresh! This is what Katie says about her ingredients: “All of my luxury handmade products are made from scratch in small batches and contain only all natural ingredients. I use ONLY the best quality essential oils to add fragrance. My products are not only good for your body, they are also Eco-friendly!! Why handmade soap you ask? Many of the commercially produced and sold soap bars contain synthetic detergents know to dry out your skin, even the ones that don’t contain these have been stripped of their glycerine (a natural by product of soap production that acts a humectant) which can be equally as drying. My handmade soap is Eco friendly, all natural and contains all of its natural glycerine to help keep your skin soft and hydrated feeling.“
I have had the products for a few weeks now to see what I really love best. So far I am loving the charcoal facial soap and lavender mint lip balm like I said. I also am loving the grapefruit lotion bar and the morning madness soap! But honestly every bar of soap she sent smells amazing, and that isn’t something I say often!
Katie is offering a huge giveaway to a lucky reader! She is giving away 2 large bars of soap, 2 small bars, two lotion bars and 2 lip balms with a lip balm keychain holder. It’s worth almost $50 and the winner will get to customize their fragrances!! Someone will be in soap heaven! The giveaway runs from 2/10 – 2/17. You must be 18 years or older and live in the US to enter. Enter below with the Rafflecopter (might take a second to load) Good Luck!!
