The Irish Twins Soap Company has handmade soaps that contain only natural ingredients.
Since I love trying new soaps, especially ones that don’t have a lot of extra chemical stuff added to them I was happy to have a chance to try their Honey Almond Rustic Soap.
One thing I really like is that the soap comes with minimal packaging. So there isn’t a lot of trash to throw away. That also saves some trees which is a really good thing.
The soap itself is nice. Nice enough that I have already ordered some more for myself. It smells good but it doesn’t have a strong scent to it.
What I really like is the exfoliating effect of the oatmeal that is in it. It feels really good on your hands or whatever body part you use it on.
As the name of it implies this soap also contains honey which is supposed to help with healing if you clean scratches or sores with it.
They have a Soap-Of-The-Month subscription you can get too. The soap can be shipped to you each month or to sent to someone else as a gift. The options are for 3, 6, or 12 months and you can get 1, 2, or 3 bars at a time. I think that is a really neat option….you get to try a new soap every month for a while and it will always be a surprise!
Another great thing about this company (besides their soap) is that it is a cottage industry owned by two sisters who were born less than 12 months apart, which is the definition of “Irish Twins”. That’s where they got the name of their company.
They are located in South Dakota and you buy Irish Twins products in many stores there or you can order online. They do accept PayPal and can also be found on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
I was offered a chance to review some Just Bee products. One of the items was a lip balm that is sort of a cross between a balm and gloss.
I love trying out different lip balms. I have tried a lot of different ones.
This Just Bee lip balm seems more like a lip gloss to me.
When I first put it on the first thing I noticed was the smell. It reminded me of my school days. I couldn’t figure out why for the longest time. Then I was looking at the information on the Just Bee website and it said the balm comes in two flavors…Peppermint and “Bumble Gum”.
I have the “Bumble Gum” flavor. It was reminding me of my middle school days when all the girls were crazy for lip gloss. Everyone had at least one lip gloss and one of the favorite flavors was of course bubble gum.
I would have loved this lip balm just for the memories it brought back. It does have a couple other things to recommend it though.
Namely it only has a few ingredients: Bee’s wax, Vaseline, and flavoring oil. And it comes in a really pretty applicator.
The hand balm is nice too. It rubs in well without leaving a greasy feeling and it does a good job of moisturizing the hands. I liked it.
They have other items including hand soap, hand lotion, and laundry soap.
