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.

    Bee silk looks interesting but so does the make it yourself kit. I used to have a shea hard lotion I bought at at fair. It didn’t smell great after hanging out in my purse and had collected lint and other items because the tin kept popping open. This looks like a better tin.

    My mom cleans houses and her hands take a beating. I think she’d love the chocolate lotion bar, and from what I read, it hopefully would be a godsend for her!

    I am interested in all the products, such as the Rash Cream, which I think would be soothing for some contact dermatitis breakouts now and then.

    Renee’s products are amazing! I have used just about everything she sells but my fave is the DIY kit. I love to add my own EOs to make bug repellent I can feel good about putting on my babies.

    Love Made On!!! I like the DIY kit. I’m also tempted by the Second Life Hair Butter. We have LOOOOOOONG hair here on six girls (yup, six), and would definitely give it a run for its money! :) Okay, and my husband votes for the lip balm. He’s addicted to lip balm. Seriously. Okay, and the chocolate lotion bar for my daughter who cannot eat chocolate, but loves the smell and has HORRIBLY dry skin. I stopped using lotion so she could have all of ours. GREAT giveaway! Thank you!

    I purchased the kit to make it myself, but have yet to make a BAR! I used it all on lip balm, which has now been distributed throughout our neighbor, thanks to my husband! Need to get some more!
