Feathers on the Ground

This time of year all I want to do is sleep and recuperate from the holiday season. It happens in a flash, but I'm always exhausted after it's over. Especially after hauling the tree out of my house last night and vacuuming for an hour afterwards. As much as I would like to sleep for the next two months straight, there's work to do and tasks to complete. The next best thing is turning my bathroom into a mini spa. Luckily, I recently received a box of bath goodies from Feathers on the Ground to jump start my post-holiday relaxation. I have to say...I'm hooked.

Tricia makes all the goat's milk products at home using milk from her Nigerian dwarf goat Maggie. The goat's milk nourishes and moisturizes skin without drying chemicals. What better way to give my skin a little TLC in the dead of winter?
My favorite thing about their soap is the delicate scent. So often the soaps in the grocery store are very overpowering, and not in a pleasant way. Gentle essential oils, shea and avocado butters moisturize and exfoliate the skin. You're left with a subtle and beautiful scent. The Cold Water scent is masculine, and it is Feathers on the Ground most popular men's fragrance. I was lucky enough to receive two seasonal scents, Christmas Spice and Pumpkin Spice, which smell so yummy you want to eat them. But you probably shouldn't.

The lotion is just dreamy. I've shared it with several people in the office and every person says, "Wow, that is so moisturizing and smells incredible." I love that it's thick, yet absorbs quickly, so you don't spend all day rubbing in greasy lotion. Tricia sent me the Waterlily Orange-scented lotion and told me it's one of her most popular scents.She says the lotions are made for more sensitive skin. She uses rice bran oil in her lotions because it's even gentle enough for babies. If you have sensitive skin, but still would like a wonderful-smelling lotion, these are for you.

Then there's my absolute favorite product from this company and maybe even of all my beauty products. Perfume solid. It's unlike anything I've ever used, and I don't think I'll ever be able to live without it again. It's small, portable, can't spill or break, and it's just the right amount of scent. I keep one in my desk and one in my purse. Sometimes in the middle of the day you find your perfume could use a little pick me up but you don't want to suffocate your coworkers by spraying your perfume everywhere. Or maybe you're meeting your honey for a dinner date after work and don't have time to go home and freshen up. Enter perfume solid. You just use your finger to apply to your wrists, behind your ear, back of your neck, anywhere. It's a solid moisturizing bar so it doesn't make a mess and can't spill. It's almost like a solid lotion. It doesn't get on your clothes and jewelry like liquid perfume, and it's even small enough to take on the airplane. I cannot say enough good about it. It's genius! The White Ginger and Amber scent smells like a tropical vacation. It's light yet sophisticated. Very feminine and ladylike. At just $3.00 each, they're incredibly affordable and will last a very long time. How can you go wrong?
