I hate to admit this, but I have horrible skin.  Seriously, my face really acts like it hates me sometimes.  Some parts of it are oily, some are dry, and some are flaky.  It’s really annoying and can be embarrassing.  For the longest time, I used an expensive face wash that worked, but it was not all natural and it made me need to also use the matching moisturizer.  Coincidence?  I think not.

I got an awesome little sampler pack of soaps from Shadedlily on Etsy.  It came with 4 different scents; Citrus Basil, Lavender, Eucalyptus Spearmint, and Café Mocha.  Now when I first got them, I had to separate them because they all kind of smelled the same.  This is obviously because the Eucalyptus Spearmint is pretty overpowering.  I decided to use them on my face since I haven’t bought my overpriced face wash in such a long time and I was amazed at how silky the soaps are!!  Most bar soaps leave my skin feeling tight and dry and these certainly did not!

I also got an amazing stain stick that I am SO excited about.  They come packaged in a lip balm tube so they are perfect if you have chronic mess makers like I do!  I immediately took mine out to the car where my precious 5 year old decided to do art on the seat of the car.  I usually use disposable diaper wipes on my hard to remove stains because those suckers could eat the paint off of a car, but my handy dandy wipes did NOTHING to remove the ink from the fabric.  This magical stick took off 90% of the Texas sun baked in blue and black ink!!  It was so easy and I love that I can keep it in my purse or pocket for daily emergencies like these!!  If you come follow me on Instagram (http://instagram.com/5troublemakers) you can see the miracle that happened to my seat and see other behind the scenes pictures from my product reviews!
