Made on, tried and tested

Have you heard the one about the supermodel?

She got paid a lot of money to grace the pages of a fashion magazine and persuade me to buy a cream. This cream will make all the difference in the world to me. Mostly to my wallet. It will also work best with two other products. By the time I get used to using them all, they will stop making them. The ingredients I will not be able to pronounce, nore will the supermodel. She did not create the cream and she is more then likely not using it anyway.

I have a drawer full of creams. Mostly because before I became a mom I had a lot of time to flick through the magazines.

Have you heard about Renee?

She is a wife and a mom. She send me a little box. In the box is a lotion bar. She created and made the bar. Out of three ingredients. She uses it herself and so does her family. She even tells everybody exactly how to make a bar like that themselves.

So I used the bar. I used it on my cracked hands. On my sons delicate skin. On my horses scab. I even gave my husband the chap stick that Renee send.

The results are in and Made on products got all three votes. Little J likes applying the Jr. lotion by himself to both his cheeks and mine. Husband says he is man enough to admit publicly he loves the peppermint lip balm. I am addicted to the chocolate smell of the Au Chocolat lotion bar. I might have even contemplated taking a bite of it.

I am telling you all this today because:

I think great things can be simple and inexpensive.

I love supporting fellow moms and endorsing their ideas on how to make the world just a little bit better.

I believe if you find something you like you should tell your friends.

My bathroom drawer is finally tidy, since I can use one lotion for everything.

You heard me, there is a lotion with chocolate inside.

And because I have some to give away!!

Not just one, but two. TWO WONDERFUL 3 in 1 packs that include a family size and a pocket size Hard on lotion and a lip balm.

You can enter twice:

1. Visit MADE ON website and return to tell me which products tickle your fancy.

2. For an additional entry LIKE HARD LOTION on Facebook. Return and leave a comment telling me you did so. (Note from me: Renee shares how to make these products on Facebook so you liking her FB page is a win-win for you)

So go on, have a look for yourself. Then tell me I am right. Sometimes I really know what I am talking about.

Giveaway ends Tuesday 25th October at 9PM Pacific time. Two winners will be drawn and notified via email.

I was given above mentioned products to review and did so with pleasure. However I was not compensated for it. All opinions expressed are my own. As is my addiction to the Au Chocolate lotion bar.
