Veve's Handmade {review + giveaway}

Yummy for your skin! (and good for it too!) Meet Veve's Handmade!






I love stories like Amanda's from Veve's Handmade. Turned off from the chemicals in mainstream bath and body products, she went out and created her very own line of eco-friendly cold process soaps. After a year of experimenting, she has created a very delicious line of products, from sugar scrubs to lip balms, Veve's Handmade has it all!





Now, I should clarify: these aren't actually to eat :) My little one had to learn the hard way, but the one little bite had her breath smelling like Oatmeal, Milk and Honey the whole day. That just gives you an idea of how great Veve's Handmade products really are!




Amanda is always busy coming up with new recipes, and I think her latest Tomato Basil Facial Bar sounds wonderful! Inspired by her garden, no less!





Yum! Even better, each product has its ingredients listed so you can see exactly what you're sudsing up! I even learned a little bit (how awesome is coconut oil!) and it feels good to know that there are no extra additives, and every batch is created fresh, just for you!





And really, who doesn't love sugar scrub?!?!

Like I said, we love the Oatmeal, Milk and Honey bar around our house! Amanda treated us, and we all love it, from the baby to the husband! It's gentle enough on eyes and the face, but so soothing and moisturizing! (it's done especially well with bug bites too!!)

Guess what? Amanda has offered up an Oatmeal, Milk and Honey treat from Veve's Handmade for a lucky reader! Yay!!
