Grandpa's Famous Soap Review [And Giveaway]


I am trying to get better about washing my face at night, and so when I had the chance to try out soap made by Grandpa's Famous I couldn't wait to get better about that habit. Best of all, my older brother had tried out their soap that you can also use as shampoo!

There's a few things that jump out at me as being pretty awesome about Grandpa's Brands. First of all, they seem to be most well known for their Pine Tar Soap, and according to their website, the very first recipe came out in the 1870s! How about THAT? Grandpa's Brands has been through a lot of changes, but they remain such good quality. I love that it is made in the USA.  AND they are GMO FREE! Some people don't mind GMO products, but I do, and so this was so nice for me to see.

My brother had the chance to review their Pine Tar Soap. "The pine tar soap is awesome!" My brother said. "It smells really nice." Plus you can use it for your hair and he says it makes his hair look shiny, clean, and thick. He highly recommended this.

Meanwhile, my mom and I both tried out the Shea Butter Soap. This worked so nicely on my face. I tend to have sensitive skin so anything that doesn't make me break out or make my skin flake is wonderful in my book. My mom also has extremely sensitive eyes and loved this soap to wash her face.

These soaps make for a wonderful gift (and you must buy some for yourself!). Make sure you like Grandpa's Brands on Facebook and shop by visiting their website.

Best of all, I am really excited that I get to giveaway an AMAZING prize to one lucky reader.


One very lucky reader will receive:

1 Signature Grandpa Tote Bag
6 Pine Tar Soap (4.25 oz)
2 Pine Tar Travel Size Soap (1.25 oz)
1 Exfoliating Soap Saver Pouch

Enter via rafflecopter below. Giveaway ends on 6/28.

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

Lotus Foods Rice Review and Giveaway

​​

I tend to eat quite a bit of rice in my diet. First, because it's a healthy grain. Plus, I'm also gluten-free and it's a good grain for me to have that won't negatively impact my body.
So I usually purchase one particular type of rice brand, so I was really eager for the chance to try out a new kind. I tried out rice by Lotus Foods. You may have seen them in the store or heard of them before! 
What makes Lotus Foods different? Well they work towards improving the lives of the farmers they work with first of all. They use what is called a "System of Rice Intensification." It's a way of allowing farms to "double and triple their yields while using 80-90% less seed, 50% less water, less or no chemical inputs." Basically, more rice, less water. So I tend to be a visual learner, so if you want to know more about what this means, watch this really short video below:

They also partner with small scale farmers, which I think is amazing and I really …

Crazy Richards Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway

I absolutely love peanut butter. Really, I mean peanut butter is such a huge part of my diet. And you know, I really appreciate when peanut butter has simple ingredients. Peanuts. Salt. And that's it. I don't like added oils and I'm not TOO big of a fan of flavored peanut butters. Although I'd never turn down chocolate peanut butter (if I found the right blend!).
Anyways, I had the chance to try out some peanut butter by a company called, "Crazy Richards." Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter has been around a while. It was formed and combined by two Richards about 30 years ago and was recently passed along to the newest generation.
Well, I got the chance to try out their peanut butter - creamy and crunchy. I loved it. Here's a weird thing I love with peanut butter - whole milk vanilla Greek yogurt with blueberries! Sure people put peanut butter in smoothies, but I scoop out some of my favorite vanilla greek yogurt into a cup and put it in the freezer with …
