Lip Scrubs, Body Butters, and Lip Balms, Oh My!

Hello everyone! I have some neat stuff to share with you today. Madalyn of Basswood Naturals on Etsy was sweet enough to send me a few things to try from her line of personal care items. Everything is hand made and made to order so you're always getting the freshest batch possible and she tries to use locally sourced ingredients when available. Oh, and her products are extremely affordable too. Love that!

Here's what she sent...

I'm a sucker for pretty packaging and these did not disappoint. I love how cute her labels are!

The first item I tried was this Picnic Days Chamomile and Lemon Whipped Body Butter

I used this on my hands before bed and really liked it. It has such a nice scent too. The next night, I added a dab on my elbows and knees. Oh, and for some reason, my kitty LOVED the smell of this stuff! She would not quit sniffing my hands! Lol! 

I'm pretty much addicted to lip balm. I use it every night and usually during the day too. Again, I loved the scent of this. Lavender and vanilla are such a great combination. It was very moisturizing too. Good stuff!

My favorite item was hands down, the Picnic Days Chamomile and Lemon Lip Scrub

You can see in this close up that it's definitely an exfoliating scrub. 

This stuff was great! I just rolled it on my lips, then wiped it away with a damp wash cloth and presto...soft, smooth lips. It's 100% edible too. :) Why is it that we think to exfoliate our skin, but not our lips? Well, not anymore. This is going to be a regular weekly routine for me now. 

This is just a sampling of what's available in her shop. She has lots of neat products to choose from and is always adding new things. Be sure to check out her site here:

Madalyn is offering a discount to my readers right now too. Just use the code: "NATURAL10" to receive 10% off a minimum order of $3.50 through August 10th. 

Wouldn't these be great as a "back to school" gift for all the teachers in your life? They would be wonderful stocking stuffers too. Christmas IS only 5 months away, ya know. ;) 


*Disclosure: Basswood Naturals provided me with these products. I received no compensation for writing this review and all opinions are strictly my own. 


  1. Those products look like they would be great! I'm a lover of lip balm too. I always have some on my lips and have it stored everywhere for quick access. LOL! I'll have to go check out her website.

  2. The products sound wonderful. Will have to pay her shop a visit! :)

  3. Oh Lisa how cute are these. I am hopping over to check her Etsy shop out.

  4. This looks like such good stuff! Funny the timing of this, my husband just brought home a few soaps, lip balm and foot and heel lotion from a client a couple days ago...for us to try! I love homemAde cosmetics! And yes, they'd make great stocking stuffers! Lol!
