Tiffany from Homemade Essentials reached out to me a few weeks ago and offered me the chance to try out her all natural face, body and hair products. After meeting with her and getting the low-down on her home based business + products I was excited to get to slathering them all over me.
I tested out the Peppermint Face and Body Scrub, Whipped Body Butter, & Bath/Foot Soak. Before I dive in to my review for each product let me say this, I am a ridiculous fan of peppermint and literally spent over 2 hours in my bathroom playing with these.
•Peppermint Face and Body Scrub
There are two different textures of sugar in this scrub and it’s layered with coarse and fine. Be gentle with the coarse on your face obviously but it’s great for exfoliating skin anywhere. I used the coarse on my legs and the fine on my face. The peppermint leaves a refreshing feeling afterwards and my skin felt so smooth. Best way to freshen up my scaly winter legs.
•Peppermint Whipped Body Butter
I may have to start buying this stuff by the gallon. Not only does it smell fantastic, but it left my skin so soft. I have what is fondly known as ‘runners feet.’ They are pretty gnarly dry cracked heels! Rubbing this onto my tired achy feet after a run and a bath had me walking on air. It was also a great excuse for my boyfriend to give me a foot rub in the process, haha!
•Peppermint Bath/Foot Soak
I am a total ‘bath’ person. I don’t have an amazing tub but having the right bath time products makes me feel like I’m at a spa. Yes, there are bath bombs or value sized artificially scented epsom salts by the jug but this foot soak is no joke! The Epsom salts in this product are high quality mixed with her specific blend of ingredients makes this bath experience feel quite decadent, I stayed in there long after my fingers got all pruney.
