Healthy Options of Days Gone By Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



I love getting to try new hygiene products. They are my favorite to try out. We all know we need them, so why not have fun figuring out what you like?

I was sent a BUNCH of samples to try from Healthy Options of Days Gone By
I was sent 3 full size soaps, 2 sample soaps, Beeswax Lip Balm and a Sugar Scrub!!
In particular the Cup O Joe soap, Hint of the Woods men's soap, Vanilla Comfort soap. Sample soaps including Sweet Southern Green Tea and Hedonistic Desires. Then the Beeswax Lip Balm in Hint O Mint and of course the Raw Sugar Scrub in Vanilla Comfort. 

I was sent lots of goodies to try. The first thing I tried was the Lip Balm. The mint is just perfect, it's all natural with nothing artificial added. It was fantastic. It went on real smooth, it was oily, but not too oily. The smell was great and it really lasted. 

Next thing I tried was the scrub. Now I make my own scrubs, so it was interesting to see how it would stand up to my own. It took the cake!! This scrub was really great. The smell was nice and subtle and it left my skin smooth for 2 days!!

The soaps are all great. Jon has used the Hint of the Woods and he really likes it. Me? I've sampled them all!!! They're all really great. Some of them didn't smell that good when I opened the package, but once used and on the body they smell really great. 

Healthy Options of Days Gone By has some really great products. Besides what I've reviewed here she has a Deet Free Insect Repellent bar soap!! HOW great is that? Skip that extra step and just apply your bug repellent when you shower in the morning.  She also carries Bath Salts, Achy Muscle Salves, Just For Kids Rock Soap, Hand Cream, Diaper Cream, Motion Sickness Salve and I could go On and ON, but check out her shop yourself, you WON'T be disappointed.

Price: Her full size soaps are just $2!! AWESOME. Her Lip Balm is $2. Her sugar scrub is $7. Not bad prices at all. I'm really pleased with the items. 

Overall: ***** They're all natural, so it doesn't get much better than that. 

GIVEAWAYHealthy Options of Days Gone By has offered one Mommy Of 1 and Counting reader the chance to win an Ice Cream Dream Basket which includes 2 lip balms, a sugar scrub and 4 soaps!
