Handmade Happiness – Natural Desires Soap Co. PLUS GIVEAWAY

I spend a lot of time reading. Reading about the world, reading about things for my baby, and reading about product reviews. It has just become second nature at this point! I think most of my reading and reviews come from Instagram and YouTube so I was shocked when I had the sweetest woman reach out to me to see if I would review her products on my blog. My first thought was “heck ya!!!” but I think that is natural for anyone. I wanted to make sure the products were something I was ACTUALLY interested in and sure enough, I was blown away when I realized how lucky I was to get to review Natural Desires Soap Company!!!!!

Nicole, the shop owner, is such an amazing woman to talk to and I feel so privileged that she reached out to me (despite my small following) to see if I would like to review her products. In researching her company, I found not only beautiful, handmade items but also a truly lovely woman with an amazing family and a heart of gold (you can read about her here). Amongst the many amazing things I could say about her and her products, one of the biggest is that her company gives back to the community! Each purchase helps the charity Delivering Fancy which works to create self-care boxes for mothers of special needs children – such a beautiful charity!!!

Y’all know I love me some bath time. Especially because it is time to focus on ‘Erika Time’ and pamper myself a little bit. Let’s be real. Who doesn’t need time like that?! These products are HANDMADE and NATURAL!!! Plus, they are freaking stunning. Seriously. I feel like my pictures don’t do them justice….and I’m sure my words won’t do them justice either BUT we are gonna try!!!!

Let’s dive in!

Here is the outside of the box and I love it!! It’s little details like this that make you feel appreciated.

Plus, I have a little handwritten note!

This was actually featured in the April box for Bath Blessing and it’s absolutely amazing. This is different than a bath bomb in the sense that it makes your bath so decedent and luxurious with its buttery, bubbly experience. Whenever I crumbled this under my running faucet, it had a velvety buttery texture to it that even made my hand feel moisturized. As I sat in my lovely bath tub filled with buttery goodness, I was surrounded by the most delicate jasmine fragrance to it. I literally kept refilling my tub because I did not want to get out!!

Second Item: Apple Pie Goat Milk Soap – $6

I know it looks like a swirly apple dessert, but it’s not for eating! This homemade Apple Pie Goat Milk Soap has the perfect mixture of apple and the perfect mixture of pie to make you fall in love.

Natural Desires Soap Co.

Holy heck, is the soap not the most gorgeous thing you have ever seen?! I love the texture on the top – seeing the actual cinnamon in it just brings a huge smile to my face. This has a faint cinnamon scent to it when you smell it before lathering up, but as you use it, you can really smell all of the dimensions of an actual apple pie. Needless to say, I am now craving pie. What I loved most about this soap was the thicker lather that coated my skin in a lavish hydration. This also has a beautiful buttery silkiness to it that I cannot begin to express how amazing it feels against your skin. IT IS SUBLIME!!!

Third Item: Shower Steamers – Lemongrass, Orange, Peppermint, Lavender – $8

Our set of 4 shower steamers will make any down day, simply go away. Shower Steamers easily turn your shower into beautiful an aromatherapy spa experience. You will breath easy as you soak in the therapeutic affects of hot steam and orange, peppermint, lemongrass, and lavender essential oils fill your shower. Clearing any sinuses and uplifting your day. These are perfect for when you’re feeling under the weather.

Natural Desires Soap Co.

YAY! I love shower steamers!! There are so many times where I want a little extra boost to my shower and these are perfect for that. You stick one in the corner and it wafts up and creates the most earthy, fragrant experience. I just used the lavender one before writing this (big shocker there, I love lavender) and let me tell you, it is SO amazing. It lasted the whole time I was in the shower and made my bathroom smell divine. Plus, I am a strong believer that lavender actually does help some of the stress ease away so that’s a great added bonus. I am excited to see what the others are like!

You and your skin will sigh with relief when you feel the rich lather of smoothness created by this unique Kosmic Karma Soap. Charcoal has powerful absorption properties making it especially beneficial for oily facial skin.

And that detail!!!!!! Look at how cute those poppy seeds are. I love that this is a little ‘out of this world’ in terms of what you imagine handmade items to look at. I can’t say I have used many things that have activated charcoal in them so I was excited to see this! I was also very happy to see that you can use this on your face – my skin is definitely in some need of TLC with all this crazy weather we are having. You can definitely catch the lavender scent in this as you lather up and it left my skin feeling like a million dollars!

You guys. I can’t. THIS SMELLS JUST LIKE A FREAKING COOKIE!!!! Holy heck, I may have died and gone to heaven. I never want this to be empty!!! Imagine the most moist, buttery, just out of the oven cookie and put it into a sugar scrub – that’s exactly what this is. The sugar is a perfect, fine abrasiveness to gently exfoliate your skin BUT there is also all of the goodness from the oils to envelope your skin in a lovely hydration barrier to keep you hydrated all day. Ugh. Everyone needs this!!!!!!
