I was contacted by For Goodness Grape to do a review & giveaway. I checked out her etsy store and saw that the store owner makes a lot of lip care products. Since we do go through a lot of lip gloss and lip balms, I thought it would be fun to try their products. When the package came, DD was overjoyed. She loved the packaging of the product. Each item we received was individuallly gift wrapped like candy. DD could not wait to open everything up. Out of all of the products I received to review, my favorite was the Be an Angel Shimmer Gloss - 5 Piece Stacked Set. I love that the I get 5 different colors that are stacked together for easy transportation in my purse. I have tried all 5 colors and I love them all. DD's favorite was the Orange Chocolate Truffle Lip Candy. I have the feeling that it is because the lip balm tastes like chocolate. But she loves it and she keeps on applying it on her lips. As a matter of fact, she loves it so much that she took it to her preschool as a share day toy.
The Calming Aromatherapy Stix is supposed to help with the feel of calmness in the evening or at night time for you or on baby. I can't really tell if it really does calm me down or not because I think I am too stressed about getting the house ready for the new baby and with the construction that is happening with our house to be clam at all. But I am looking forward to trying this on the new baby in the future.
We also received Chocolate Amber Perfume Stix and the Soapy Clean Perfume Stix to review. I thought that the perfume sticks smell nice. My only recommendation is that because perfumes scents are very subjective, you should look through the wide varity of different scents For Goodness Grape offers to find a scent you will like. Also, keep in mind that the perfume stix is a solid perfume, a little bit of it goes a long way so don't put too much of it on :).
To buy the products we received to review and to check out other products offered by For Goodness Grape , please visit its etsy shop.
