Beecology: Product Review and Giveaway

When I opened the door to receive my package from Beecology, it was like, well, I'd imagine what Christmas morning was like when you were a little kid. I was contacted by them to see if I'd be interested in getting some samples to review and to host a giveaway. If you remember my product addiction, I quickly checked out their website, and when I saw that their products are all natural, I had to give them a shot.

So when I opened up a box that was filled with this:



You can guess I was in pure heaven. My daughter, who has begun to carry on my addiction, was beyond excited. She wanted to open everything up. Smell it all at once, use whatever she could. Now wait just a minute there, sister, these are mommy's treats, not yours!

I've tried almost everything and I really am loving these products. Beecology doesn't mess around with their stuff. They're the real deal. Mmmn. Yummy smelling, too.

Just a quick one-liner about the lip balm: Perfection. I love it. It's gentle, smells good, perfect for adults and kids alike (I should know - remember my daughter the product addict? She goes for lip stuff straight away!).

I've used the shampoo and conditioner, and honestly, I am still trying to determine how they work with my hair.
I am trying to decide which I like more, the shampoo or the conditioner. I like them both, but I am kind of preferring them separately. I use conditioner in waves. Sometimes sparingly, sometimes every day for a week, and I like the way this one feels. And yesterday the conditioner seemed lighter. Something about the way it smells ... it's such a natural smell.


But, what I have to express complete and utter addiction to is ... the BAR SOAPS. I am seriously addicted to these soaps. Look at them:



First of all, they're huge. I wasn't sure if I'd want to try them, being more of a shower gel girl, myself. But, hey, I was open to giving them a shot. So, I let my daughter pick out which one she wanted to open for the downstairs bathroom. She picked the purple one. The purple one is honey and lavender. She loved it. I LOVE it. I smells so clean and fresh, and we love having it at the ready to wash our hands.

Then I decided I needed one at the kitchen sink. You all know how it is, when it feels like you wash your hands 100x a day and they're getting rough and dry. Honey Oatmeal for the kitchen. It just seemed like the perfect fit!

And then I took a chance, even with the shower gel samples they sent me, and I popped one open to use in the shower. The Totally Hip Hemp Soap. It's got a citrus-y scent and I really like it. Check out their line of soaps here, and watch me flip out because I swear there weren't that many choices the last time I looked! I can't wait to try the Coffee one, and the Dead Sea Mud Soap, as well.

At $5.99 per bar, these soaps are no joke. They're thick and hearty. They're fresh and sensitive. I absolutely love them and am completely addicted to them. It's crazy, isn't it? Me, a shower gel kind of girl turning into a soap addict simply because of Beecology!

Anyway, enough of my rambling ... let me share the wealth a little bit.

I would love to try the all natural hair conditioner. I have such long, thin hair that tangles so easily. This might be a great item for my hair.

My all-time fave product is... the Vitamin C Ester serum by Perricone MD. I love love love it. It might be called differently now, I cannot afford it that often so I haven't bought it in a while!
