Bare Body Soap ~ Organic Soap & Lip Blam {Review/Sponsor Spotlight} #MamaMadness


Here I go again! Handmade organic soap! I will rave about it till the end of time!


I have come across another awesome handmade soap company that is mom owned and run. Bare Body Soap is run by Roseanne Muncy, who was inspired by nature that soap should be bare and non-toxic. She uses the cold process method to create vegan and cruelty-free organic soap. She uses organic oils, essential oils, and botanicals to create her soap line. I love that she uses sustainable ingredients and eco-friendly packaging.  These soaps are truly luxurious!



Lip Balm

Bare Body Soaps not only carries Organic Soap, but also Lip Balm, Bath Tea, Laundry Detergent, Soap Bags and Gift Sets. I was sent the Organic French Green Clay Soap, the Organic Patchouli Orange Soap and Almond Lip Balm. First, I want to let you know that the Almond Lip Balm smells just like almond extract! I love the way that stuff smells and when I got it, that was the first thing I thought of. It is made with natural ingredients and essential oils. It also feels ultra-light, yet moisturizing. I love it!




The soap is also amazing! They are soft and easily lather! The Organic French Green Clay Soap is scented with orange and cedarwood essential oil. The french green clay gives it its’ nice green color. Did you know that clay draws toxins out of your skin, can tighten pores, tone the skin, gently exfoliate, and can reduce inflammation from acne? These are all great reasons why you should love this soap! It also helps promote blood flow and increase circulation. When I think of soaps that involve clay, I think of super rich, moisturizing soaps. This soap hold up to that thought. I love the way that this soap makes my skin feel!




The Patchouli Orange Soap smells amazing! It is made with orange, peppermint and patchouli essential oils. I know that some people either love patchouli or hate it, but I love the way it smells, especially mixed with the orange. I love that these soaps look so pure and organic. No bright or unnatural colors! No fragrance oils! I love the simpleness and effectiveness of organic soap!


I love my products and I love that this mom made company is on a mission to create organic and natural products. You can purchase all Bare Body Soaps online. The Organic Soap bars are $6 and the Lip Balm is $2.99. There is a$6 flat rate shipping and free shipping on a purchase of $25 or more!

Essential Oils ~ Introduction




I first learned about all the benefits of essential oils from a webinar hosted by Modern Wellness. It was called Medicine Cabinet Makeover and focused on using essential oils instead of OTC meds. Since this webinar in December, I have become a daily user of essential oils. When someone said they used essential oils everyday, I actually didn’t understand what that meant. Now that I am used to them, I actually do use them on a daily basis.

What you put on your face matters! {Read Labels}


When it comes to my beauty routine, I make sure that the products I use are made with natural and organic ingredients. It is important to me that what I put on my body and face is chemical and toxin free. Whatever you put on your skin will seep into your body. This means that if you rub parabans ans dyes all over your skin, that is what your body will absorb.


Over the years I have learned a lot about chemicals that are found in beauty products. I also learned the difference between essential oils and fragrance oils. Make sure that the products you buy are made with essential oils and not fragrance oils. Fragrance oils are synthetic, which means they are chemically derived. Essential oils are plant derived, which means they come directly from the source. “Natural” and “Organic” products should have ingredients that reflect that!

Vermont Organics Honey Love Facial Mask - 2.5 oz.


Pangea Organics Facial Cream Italian Red Mandarin with Rose - 2 oz.

If you are looking for organic skin care items and other eco-friendly products, check out Enviro Products World. They carry toys, bath & body, suncare, health products and more. Every product is made with chemical free, natural and organic ingredients. Enviro Products World is a one stop shop! They pride themselves on being environmentally responsible!


I encourage you to always read labels and support companies that make and carry natural and organic products!

Upcoming Webinar: All About Kids & Essential Oils!



Many parents these days are searching for natural options to common OTC medications, especially for our children. Essential oils are a great alternative to modern medicine. There are natural ways to address asthma, fevers, burns, ear infections, teething, ADD/ADHD, and more. If you would like to learn about some options that you have, you can attend a webinar that Modern Wellness is offering on Weds February 27th that will show you how to use essential oils with children. You can register HERE! {Tell them Brittney @ Brittleby’s Corner sent you!}


I can honestly say that when I went to my first Webinar with Christy from Modern Wellness, my life was forever changed. I am loving essential oils and have been using them for all kinds of ailments. My kids have had coughs, fevers, ear aches, rashes and more within the past month and we haven’t needed to go to the doctor once! Let me know if you have any questions, but I highly recommend visiting the webinar!



Also, be sure to hop over and like the for more tips on essential oils and natural living!

Scrub & Mask Skincare Routine ~ JLU Skincare {Review} Part 2 #undertherainbow


Did you read Part 1 of my skincare routine, including my morning and evening routine? Now I am going to share about my mask and scrub routine with JLU Skincare products. In case you didn’t read my first post here is some info on the company.


JLU Skincare


JLU Skincare is a skincare line that is made with natural and organic ingredients. Also, they are cruelty free, paraben free, petroleum free, phthalate free, with natural scents and colors. Most of these products do contain Phenoxyethanol which a preservative and rated a 4 on the EWG SKindeep Database. It will keep the products from producing mold. Also, most of these products contain retinyl palmitate, which is an 8 on the EWG Skindeep Database. It is a derivative of Retinol, both are derived from Vitamin A. It is used to increase cell turnover which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These are the numbers, so decide whether or not you want to purchase products containing these ingredients.


JLU Skincare offers a variety of products including moisturizers, masks, serums, a toner, a moisturizer, and an eye cream. I was sent some full size products as well as samples of the rest of the line. I been using these products in both my morning and evening routines, as well as a mask and facial scrub routine.


I wash my face before using a scrub or mask, with the Orange & Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser. You only need a pea size amount to cleanse your entire face. I have learned to lather the cleanser in my hands till their are suds, then I rub it on my face. I have to keep it away from my eyes or it burns a little.


Ocean Seaweed Hydrating Mask

Then for my mask routine I follow with the Ocean Seaweed Hydrating Mask. This creamy mask is fortified with seaweed, Vitamin E and Vitamin A to nourish and hydrate the skin. To use, apply it the face and neck and allow the mask to dry for 5-10 minutes, then rinse with warm water.


French Clay Micro Scrub

For my scrub routine, after I wash my face I use the French Clay Micro Scrub. This exfoliating scrub clears and detoxes clogged pores. The clays draw out impurities and the micro-fine pumice gently exfoliates, leaving your face renewed and luminous. To use, apply it the face and neck and allow the mask to dry for 5-10 minutes, then rinse with warm water.


Herbal Infusion Age Rewind Serum

Following the scrub & mask routine I use the Herbal Infusion Age Rewind Serum. This serum resurfaces the face while moisturizing and firming. Whenever my face feels dry, I apply a serum to keep it ultra moisturized.


Ultra-Conditioning Aloe & Olive Moisturizer

Following the serum, I apply the Ultra-Conditioning Aloe & Olive Moisturizer. This moisturizer leaves my skin feeling soft. It contains aloe and is infused with Olive and Jojoba oils.


There are many options when it comes to taking care of your face. Make sure you find something that works for your skin type.  One of my readers will have a chance to try out JLU Skincare in an upcoming giveaway! You have a chance to win a free facial kit including an Orange & Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser (4 oz.), Ultra-lite Gentle Moisturizer (2 oz.), Clarifying Facial Infusion (2 oz.), and French Clay Micro Scrub (2 oz.).
