Perfectly Posh Products $50 Giveaway

I was recently contacted by blog reader (and fellow Old-Navy lover) Stacey. She is a consultant for Perfectly Posh products and she wanted to know if I was interested in trying their products, which are all made of natural ingredients and are paraben-free.


I love luxurious bath & body products - so I agreed to try a selection of products that appealed to me:  no facial products since I'm on acne treatment - and no bath bombs/bubble baths/body scrubs - I'm more of a shower gel/lotion/body butter person! As always - when I review a free item, I consider it as if I paid the retail price...and evaluate it objectively.

Continue reading to see what I thought of the products and for the chance to win a $50 Perfectly Posh gift certificate (open to US residents only, sorry!).

Big Fat Yummy Hand Creme:
These are 3 versions of the same product, each with a different fragrance. This cream is full of moisturizing oils (including Coconut, Olive, Safflower, Grape, Jojoba & Avocado) yet it absorbs easily and leaves a long-lasting soft feeling. I feel like it improves the overall condition of my skin, rather than just creating a temporary silky feeling (unlike some other hand creams - especially silicone-based ones!). I've reviewed hand creams extensively here. While Fruits & Passion is still my Holy Grail hand cream - I would rate the PP ones above Aquaphor, Neutrogena and Kiehls creams!

Chunk Big Bath Bars & Shower Gelee
Gender Bender Bath Bar - This unisex soap is very firm yet lathers well. It has a sweet sandalwood-y smell - my children said it reminded them of my "going-out perfume" (Angel by Thierry Mugler).

Maha Satori Gelee - This wash is SLS free, yet foams up nicely. The Ginger & White Tea smell is divine BUT sadly not long-lasting. By the time I apply moisturizer I can no longer smell it on my skin.

Feng Shoap Bath Bar - I love this creamy white soap - it's so nourishing and luxurious. It's triple-milled and butter-based, so it's softer than the Gender Bender soap. It has a lovely light & powdery scent. I would use this on my kids.

Cocoa Body Butter, Mood Mister & Sugar Lip Scrub
Plain Posh Cocoa Body Butter - One of my favorite products - it's so pure and although no fragrance has been added - it has a beautiful natural cocoa scent which I LOVE. Colder weather means we've turned the central heating on - and this cream has been a miracle-worker on the resulting dry & itchy skin. It immediately cools our skin down and soothes it - eliminating any redness and tightness.

Lavender Mood Mister - This essential oil is for spraying on your body or surroundings. Although this product was hard to sample (since it's a liquid placed in a jar rather than a spray) I couldn't get over how AMAZING this smelled - I love it so much! I think this would be the perfect product to take on a long-haul flight: spray it onto your seat and blanket before settling down for a nap - it would take care of any stale smells while relaxing your body in one easy step!

Make-Out Magic Sugar Lip Scrub - I've not had much luck with lip scrubs before (see my thoughts on the Bath & Bodyworks one here). I had a mild case of the flu last week, which left me with dry, peeling lips. I tried my usual Vaseline + Paper towel trick, but my lips were still flaky. I applied this on my lips - and within 30 seconds, the flakes were all gone! I still had to apply lip balm after as the scrub left my lips feeling a bit dry - but I'm super-impressed at how effective this is!

MY THOUGHTS:
Perfectly Posh products are a definite must-try for any one who likes natural and luxurious bath & body products. I love how all the product ingredients are clearly listed and explained on their website. The last 3 products I tried (Cocoa butter, Mood Mister & Lip scrub) were my favorites - they are effective and unique - and I would definitely go out and purchase them with my own money.
