I received a guiltless ice cream scented trio of lip scrubs to review -- strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla. Every night I hear "Mommy, can you give me a lip scrub?" Violet is smitten with my Good Earth Beauty lip scrub. Me thinks she's accidentally on purpose nibbling on a sugar crystal or two.
Good Earth Beauty is an online beauty shop that only carries natural and organic products that are not tested on animals. Products are chosen and personally tested by the staff and they have everything you could possibly need for bath and body including soaps, moisturizers and even makeup.
As a DIY'er, my initial reaction was I can whip this stuff up in my kitchen. Wrong, I can't. You know why? I'm not likely to make time for it. In theory it sounds like a good idea but a better idea is to go ahead and place an order and have it shipped to me beautifully packaged and smelling delicious.
In addition to lip scrubs, I was also sent Unscented Body Balm. It smells like chocolate as cocoa butter is the main ingredient. No fragrance added. It's great for extra dry, chapped skin. Yep, that's us trying to recover from a long, hard winter.
Lip Exfoliation Experimentation
I may or may not have googled exfoliate lips for a better application method than the obvious. Don't want to waste any of the yummy sugar. Turns out, it's better to just go for. Grab a pinch. Slather it on, baby. Rub it in good. Wipe it off. That works.
Afterwords, the end of day chaps from my lipstick was sloughed off and my lips were soft and smooth. I finished up with the body balm which can be used on the entire body.
All natural and some organic ingredients at a fair price. The lip scrubs are $6.99 and the body balm is $10.50.
Everything smells great but not heavily perfumed. Just yummy.
There are other flavor varieties available too.
Great gift idea. Mother's Day is just around the corner. Hint. Hint. Just in case V is reading. Good Earth Beauty offers gift certificates, gift wrapping and gift baskets.

The lips scrubs are perfection. The body balm was too hard for a complete body application. Likely due to being all natural (a good thing). It will probably smooth easier once the weather warms up or maybe I can just put the tin next to the heat vents which are still pushing away winter's chill.
You may want to eat ice cream and cake after.
