Earthtastic Product Review & Giveaway!

Towards the end of March I was contacted by a lovely lady by the name is Cassidy. She asked if perhaps I would be willing to review some of her handmade body products. After a quick glance at her shop, Earthtastic, I was eager to respond and let her know I would be happy to do a review.

Cassidy uses natural, organic and sustainable ingredients to make gentle and nourishing products, many of which are vegan and nut-free. I was a little overwhelmed with all the options, but I chose calendula soap and the Emu Oil Healing Bar. I was also careful to mention that I am pregnant, therefore I was hoping to avoid any essential oils that are unsafe/too strong for pregnant bellies or babies.

I was super impressed that the items arrived as quickly as they did. I was pretty excited to open the pack and see what I had. And everything was so sweetly packed, I almost hated to open it up. It was a little like Christmas :)
So I go my wish on the Emu Oil Healing Bar, and the Calendula Soap, and she sent along a Sweet Orange Lip Balm as well. I opened the Lip Balm and used some right away. This girl can never have enough lip balm around, and I loved the soft scent of the sweet orange and found that the lip balm had a lovely texture and applied easily. And it is packaged in an eco-friendly tube!

The Emu Oil Healing Bar was a new concept for me, it's a roll-up lotion and as you apply it your body heat warms the bar making it easier to apply. It also has a gentle scent and and is super easy to use! I have severely dry skin, and sometimes get small patches of eczema - I used this lotion on one patch of eczema daily for about a week and the patch cleared right up. So impressed!

And finally the soap, this one took me longer to try, mostly because I kept forgetting to take it in the shower. But when I did, I loved it! I lathers so well, and cleans gently without leaving that tight dry soap feeling. And it's light scent is a refreshing change to the regular overly smelly soaps!

Overall I am extremely happy with the products, as well as the customer service provided by Cassidy. Earthtastic is a wonderful shop and I would highly recommend her products to anyone, especially those looking for organic, vegan or nut-free options in their body care.


And now, the most exciting part - Cassidy is offering all of these items to one luck NaH reader! And on top of that, the winner will be able to choose the scent of their lip balm and soap!
