Hello there, readers!
Today’s giveaway is the first in a series of three that I’ll be running. All three giveaways are from small businesses that make their products by hand, and I wanted to squeeze all of them in here quickly before you’re done with your gift shopping!
Though there’s a place for large corporations, I suppose, I really like to support small businesses whenever I can, and I know a lot of you do too. So, hopefully you’ll be delighted to learn more about these three small companies.
Today, I’ve got a give away from Third Day Naturals, a handmade soap company.
Third Day soaps are hand-made by a family that lives in Hudson Valley, New York.
Why should you buy soap from Third Day?
Well, Third Day soaps are made with completely natural ingredients, such as shea butter, avocado oil, and coconut oil.
They’re free of phthalates and parabens, and are made with essential oils, not fragrance oils.
And since most of their soaps are vegetable-based, you can happily use them if you’re a vegan.
The soaps come wrapped in recyclable or compostable paper, and each bar has a recyclable or compostable cardboard sleeve around it. So, they’re quite lovely on the trash production front (woo!)
Since the bars are handmade, they have a charmingly non-commercial look to them.
And they smell amazing! So fragrant. You know how sometimes artificially scented soap and body wash smell kind of…artificial? Since these are made with essential oils, they smell completely authentic.
Third Day soaps come in six different fragrances, like Peppermint Tea Tree Oil, Pink Grapefruit, and Citrus. To help you decide which is your favorite, Third Day offers a sampler pack, which contains six small bars-one for each scent.
(The sampler pack ships for free, which is a nice bonus.)
The sampler comes with a handy-dandy reference card, so you know which bar you’re using.
So far, our favorites are the Citrus and the Evergreen (it smells just like a Christmas tree!)
Third Day wants you guys to be able to try their soaps, so they’re giving away a set of two full-sized soap bars to two of you. You can use them yourself or give them to someone on your gift list.
To enter, just leave a comment telling me which scent sounds like it might be your favorite (just click right here to see the scents offered at Third Day.)
This giveaway will close at midnight EST on Monday, December 10th. At that point, two winners will be randomly chosen.
One entry per person, please.
Entries limited to the continental U.S. (Apologies to international readers. I really do love you guys too!)
disclosure: Third Day provided me with sample products to facilitate this review and giveaway, but I was not paid to write this review or run the giveaway. I do not receive a commission off of any purchases made through the links in this post, but I do hope you’ll consider doing some of your Christmas shopping with Third Day!
