Whip It Real Good ~ Bath & Body Review

I have been indulging in handmade bath and body products and I think they are worth a high five, chin up, fist bump, and a purchase.

One of the first products I feel in love with is one I actually won! It pays to enter contests. I received samples of Khemet Botanicals Vegetable Body Wash in Abaco Juju along with Let It Whip Body Souffle in the same fragrance. This body whip is delightfully light and full of moisture. My face gets dry and this is a perfect way to enjoy the benefits of a shea butter mix without it being heavy and greasy. It's texture is like mousse and is nice for hot summers when anything on the skin feels smothering. It absorbs readily and you don't have to wait to put on clothes or just use it at bed time or on your feet.

I've been an admirer of Itiel the owner of Smell Goods '98 for some time now. When she said that she was going to do a live broadcast with Q & A, I joined the chat. I'm glad I did because she just happened to drop a coupon code for $5 off any purchase. I already knew what I wanted and didn't hesitate in grabbing Sugar Whips from her Stay Sweet collection which has positive
affirmations for young ladies and ladies young at heart. It's a fun body wash in that it's fluffy in texture and has sugar for exfoliation. I've tried liquid body washes that exfoliate, but Sugar Whips is totally different and I get excited each time I use it.

The next product up is the heavy duty type of product for ashy elbows, stretching a pedicure feet, and lizard skin. It can also be used on hair too. If you don't know me by know, I have never locking Sisterlocks and they don't like products. With that said, I can't do a review on how this works on hair. I came across the owner of DIY Hair Care Products on Twitter and was drawn to her and the hair/body butter. I was in need of a good shea butter mix that I can use after a good soak and pamper me time. After a few tweets and admiring each others products, we decided to barter. I love bartering! I received 3 4oz jars of Whipped Body & Hair Butter in lavender, energy, and cake. I enjoy all of the scents, but energy has an edge on the others for now.

Itiel, I hope I'm spelling your name right. I know how to get to your website, so do forgive me, hahaha! I like that 'all purchases are welcome too'. I know that's right!
