I approached the owner/creator of Mitzy Lou, Misty Wheeler-Belin and I asked her if she would interested in providing some products for review.
Mitzy Lou is a natural, cruelty-free company that specializes in hand-made skin care products. Many of her products are also vegan. Her products contain simple, natural, nourishing and often organic ingredients. Don't worry, these ingredient labels don't contain a long list of words you can't pronounce. You can find out more about Mitzy Lou and their products on their website, www.mitzylou.com.
Skin Dew Soaps are priced at $7.50. I received Key Lime Pie and Acai Papaya and these are YUM!
They lather nicely and smell great, not over powering or artificial smelling. They don't dry out your skin or leave a film on your skin like other bar soaps. These could easily be my favorite bar soaps.
The Soy Silk Body Lotions are priced at $8 . I received Hot Pink Stilletos which smells like DKNY Delicious Candy Apple Juicy Berry. I'm generally less drawn to berry scents and more drawn to vanilla, sandalwood, light musk, chamomile, cotton candy scents... Well you get the picture. This scent has grown on me but I can't say it would be my first choice. However, the scent isn't over powering which is so important, especially with a lotion that is going to stay on your skin all day. The scent stays present for the majority of the day, but it isn't something so strong it will give you a headache. The lotion makes my skin feel soft and it leaves my skin moisturized for the whole day. Because the lotion is made with Olive Oil, I would recommend waiting 10 minutes until you get dressed.
Now for my favorite product... The Soapy Shower Souffles are priced at $18 for 16oz of product. This product literally makes for my favorite time in the shower. Words can't even describe my love for this product.. I'm a sucker for anything cupcake scented or flavored. It smells delish and suds up nicely, as long as you use a scrubby puff. A scoopful on the fingertips will do the trick. Rinse and repeat? Yes please!
In my opinion, there aren't enough good lip scrubs out there. These lip scrubs are $6 for 2oz of product, enough to last a decent amount of time. The lip scrub is made with sugar, rice bran and jojoba oil. It's just the right consistency, its not too rough but exfoliates just the right amount. It leaves my lips soft and smooth. Lip scrubs are good to use, especially if you wear lipstick. Lip scrubs help prevent chapped lips and allow your lipstick to apply more smoothly and evenly. I recommend applying this on moistened lips (water) with your finger. I had a tendency of getting the scrub on the skin around my mouth. So, I apply this prior to washing my face because my skin can be oily at times, and I don't need to add any extra! I enjoyed this lip scrub and it tastes yummy too.
Overall, I really enjoyed trying all of these products. I would look forward to trying different scents and flavors. Other products I would be interested in trying would be the facial scrub and the Cuppy Cake body butter :)
