There are a few things in life that I can say I have never been a fan of. Some of them include chapstick, body wash, luffers (l-oo-fers) (also called gauze sponges or in my vocabulary, scrubbies), and facial astringent.
However, there is one company that has stolen my heart in the area of chapstick and body wash in a way that I never thought possible.

Sweet Vanilla Sugar Scrub
When I first talked to Melinda of SimplySmitten, I heard about all of the advantages of using an all-natural product like her sweet vanilla sugar scrub. I wasn’t sure how much I would agree with her. After all, I’m not a big shower gel/body wash fan, I have super-sensitive skin, and I’m just not easily impressed. Well, I have to admit, I was completely wrong.
There is something to be said about a product that makes you whisper “Oh my word” to yourself in the shower. Yes, I really did. This gentle, exfoliating sugar scrub has a slight sweet aroma to it, offers tiny granules of sugar to remove dead skin, and is made up of all-natural ingredients that replace dry skin with a natural, unadulterated moisture that I have yet to find in any other synthetic material.
Luscious Lips: Tangy Orange Organic Lip Balm
Did you know that most chapsticks actually contain alcohol? Does that make sense to you? I thought we were supposed to be hydrating our lips when we used chapstick…. maybe that was just me.
SimplySmitten offers 5 different flavors of all natural, organic lip balm that contains hydrating ingredients such as coconut, castor, sesame, almond oils (yes, attention those with nut allergies), and beeswax. Two other great facts: They contain no alcohol and they work!
Adam doesn’t use chapstick; as I’ve mentioned, neither do I. However, when he started complaining about his lips being dry from the cold weather and his cold, I gave him the SimplySmitten orange lipbalm and he’s noticed a clear difference. I’ve even seen him carrying it around with his typical fire company pager and Droid HTC. Now, that’s something. In fact, I packed it with some things for a trip, and he asked me for it last night.
So, whether you’re looking for some all-natural and organic products for yourself or a loved one, check out SimplySmitten on Etsy for some great products!

Ohh, thanks for sharing. I also don’t like body wash mainly because I’m very sensitive to smells, especially the man made ones like cucumber melon and coconut,etc which are usually found in body wash.
Also, I’m a big chap stick fan and didn’t realize most contain alcohol, I’ll have to look into these products!
Thanks so much for the lovely review, I’m so pleased that you enjoyed the products! I appreciate the opportunity to get my name out there, and now I’m off to share your blog. Have a joyful day 🙂
