January Giveaway

Congratulations to the winner of our December giveaway, the Sheepish Grins holiday soaps, Lindsay Stehno.

You all are going to LOVE our January giveaway – it’s something for Mom! Momma Nature Cashmere Creme ($24.50 value) is the most luxurious hand cream I have ever had the pleasure of using.


Here’s what the manufacturer has to say about it:

Unbelievably rich, creamy, moisturizing and gentle! Enriched with organic hemp seed and calendula oils. No chemicals, no parabens, no mineral oils – only pure softness! Can be used on hands, body or face. Gentle enough for the whole family. May be helpful with skin sensitivities. A little goes a l-o-o-o-ng way.

Ingredients are:

Calendula oil, shea nut butter, organic hemp seed oil, avocado oil, sweet almond oil, vegetable glycerine, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, aqua, emulsifying wax, potassium sorbate, tocopherol (Vitamin E), grapefruit seed extract.

Now, I have known about this Cashmere Creme for months now. And I read the above description, thought, “Huh, that’s nice” and then immediately thought “But there is no way that I or anyone else would pay almost $25 for a 2 ounce jar of hand cream. But then I heard from another retailer in Missouri that once she put a tester out for moms to try it, they were flying off the shelves. So on a whim, I added one jar to my next order of Jellystone and Grandma El’s. Ordering testers of new products is always a little bit like Christmas. I unscrewed the lid and oh my! the delicious smell! A combination of lavender, chamomile, and some creamy shea with hints of almond.

The best part was yet to come. Have you ever touched a flower petal in the spring? Fresh, cool, impossibly silky? THAT, my friends, is how Cashmere Creme feels on your skin. Light, but luxurious, it leaves your hands feeling intensively moisturized for about five minutes and then soaks in so your hands don’t stay very greasy at all.

We have one jar that you can win, and as soon as I get my tester jar back from my mom, we will have a jar in store so you can try this magic for yourself.
