Handmade Soap Giveaway (from Third Day Naturals)

in Giveaways

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.

Me likey.

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!)

Giveaway Info!

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!

Citrus sunshine sounds amazing!

2 Kathie December 7, 2012 at 9:12 pm

I’d love to try the Peppermint Tea Tree soap! I’ve never used homemade soaps. Seems like such a luxury :-)

3 Reese December 7, 2012 at 9:18 pm

Love this kind of giveaway (can you do more of these throughout the year?). I never use body wash because of all the added junk in it, and the suds just never seem to go away. I always use bar soap, and the more natural, more homemade? The better.

Honestly all the smells sound delectable! And I’d happily wash with any of them ;)

4 HeatherS December 7, 2012 at 9:18 pm

Citrus Sunshine sounds wonderful, I bet it smells great!

5 Becca @ Live Simple Natural December 7, 2012 at 9:18 pm

Lavender Oatmeal sounds so relaxing, or Peppermint Tea Tree. Some of my favorite scents!

6 Mary G December 7, 2012 at 9:20 pm

They all sound wonderful. I think the Citrus Sunshine might be great to get me going in the morning!

7 Lisa December 7, 2012 at 9:21 pm

I think the citrus sunshine sounds nice.

8 Jackie December 7, 2012 at 9:23 pm

The citrus soap sounds amazing like something I would really like.

9 Melisa December 7, 2012 at 9:23 pm

Lavender forever!

10 Sara F. December 7, 2012 at 9:24 pm

The peppermint or lavender sound delightful to me!

11 Marla December 7, 2012 at 9:25 pm

I can’t decide between the lavender and the citrus….I love homemade soap. Either one would make me happy.

12 Ange K December 7, 2012 at 9:26 pm

The citrus sounds wonderful!

13 Michelle Little December 7, 2012 at 9:28 pm

I think Lavender Oatmeal would be my favorite.

14 kalynbrooke | Creative Savings December 7, 2012 at 9:30 pm

Grapefruit would be my choice. I love fruity smells!

15 Tanya December 7, 2012 at 9:31 pm

I love handmade soaps, the pink grapefruit seems like it would smell nice

16 Debra December 7, 2012 at 9:33 pm

These sound wonderful! As long as there’s no lanolin (the oil from sheep’s wool, gathered-so to speak-during wool processing for yarn), we can use it. My daughter and I are allergic to lanolin… We also can’t wear wool anything, and I can’t use wool yarn in my knitting or crocheting because of the residual lanolin.

17 Daniela December 7, 2012 at 9:33 pm

The Evergreen sounds wonderful and it would be great for the holiday season!

18 Mara December 7, 2012 at 9:34 pm

I love the peppermint scent. I’ve been using handmade bathing soaps for a couple years now. They are very fragrant and make nice amounts of lather but don’t leave all that extra soap on the shower floor like body wash always did. And they are pretty cheap compared to body wash.

19 Jamie Cook December 7, 2012 at 9:36 pm

I’d love to try the Peppermint one – sounds like it would wake me up in the morning!

20 Amanda December 7, 2012 at 9:39 pm

The peppermint tea tree sounds amazing. I love the invigorating smell of both of those essential oils!

21 WilliamB December 7, 2012 at 9:41 pm

Lavender-oatmeal type of person. Shall have to try the sampler. And one day coordinate with my distant SIL to have her teach me now to make soap – I have 10 lbs of lard I can’t figure a good use for.

22 Lisa P. December 7, 2012 at 9:49 pm

I would love to try to Peppermint and Pink Grapefruit. These look fantastic!

23 Rachel December 7, 2012 at 9:53 pm

the pink grapefruit looks sweet!

24 Katy December 7, 2012 at 9:55 pm

Grapefruit sounds like it would be nice.

25 Melissa December 7, 2012 at 9:55 pm

Lavendar Oatmeal would be my top pick but the Pink Grapefruit is also intriguing.

26 Kira December 7, 2012 at 9:56 pm

citrus sunshine sounds delightful

27 Sandy in NJ December 7, 2012 at 10:00 pm

Definitely Citrus Sunshine!

28 Leah December 7, 2012 at 10:02 pm


29 Patti December 7, 2012 at 10:03 pm

Hi Kristen,

I love homemade soaps. It’s all I use. My favorite in this line would be Pink Grapefruit Soap.


30 Megyn @Unstuffed December 7, 2012 at 10:09 pm

The Citrus Sunshine and Grapefruit sound fantastic :)

31 Laura Lou December 7, 2012 at 10:19 pm

Oooh, yummy! I would want the citrus sunshine soap, because it would be a pick-me-up in my morning shower.

32 Megan J December 7, 2012 at 10:21 pm

I think the lavender oatmeal flavor would be my favorite!

33 Sarah December 7, 2012 at 10:24 pm

It’s definitely a toss-up between the peppermint and citrus scent. Peppermint is soooooo calming for me and helps with my migraines, but citrus is my “go-to” pick-me-up scent!

34 Amy December 7, 2012 at 10:27 pm

Lavender Oatmeal sounds like it would both smell great and help me completely winter dried out skin.

35 Dianne December 7, 2012 at 10:28 pm

Would love to try the citrus!

36 Katrina December 7, 2012 at 10:32 pm

Peppermint Tea Tree Oil sounds wonderful:)

37 Karen S. December 7, 2012 at 10:35 pm

Definitely citrus sunshine :)

38 Meredith December 7, 2012 at 10:36 pm

Oooooh! I would love to try Lavender-Oatmeal and Citrus-Sunshine. They sound so yummy!

39 BethC December 7, 2012 at 10:40 pm

Oh, do I need the lavender oatmeal!

40 Amy December 7, 2012 at 10:47 pm

They all sound wonderful, but Peppermint Tea Tree sounds so festive!

41 robbiekay December 7, 2012 at 10:47 pm

Thanks Kristen and Third Day for the chance to enter this giveaway (I like that name–reminds me of “and on the third day He rose….”). I think the citrus sunshine sounds like a happy scent. Having sensitive skin, I was impressed with what I read about the products.

42 holly December 7, 2012 at 10:51 pm

citrus sunshine! sounds lovely

43 Terry December 7, 2012 at 10:54 pm

For me, it would definitely be the Pink Grapefruit. There’s just something about grapefruit that’s so refreshing!

44 Kathy December 7, 2012 at 10:57 pm

The citrus sounds like it would smell amazing!

45 April December 7, 2012 at 11:02 pm

Pink grapefRuit or lavendar oatmeal sound great!

46 Anne December 7, 2012 at 11:13 pm

I love lavender!

47 Amanda December 7, 2012 at 11:14 pm

I LOVE homemade soap, so I had a hard time making a decision on which I would want to try. (I might have to get a sampler pack.) Given the choice, the citrus sounds refreshing, and my husband would probably like it over some of the other scents too.

48 Debbie December 7, 2012 at 11:14 pm

Lavender anything…the Citrus also sounds amazing.

49 Kathy M December 7, 2012 at 11:14 pm

Peppermint Tea Tree, Lavender Oatmeal or Pink Grapefruit…all of them sound heavenly. Thanks!

50 Dianna December 7, 2012 at 11:31 pm

Citrus and pink grapefruit sound wondeful.

51 Alice December 7, 2012 at 11:36 pm

Head-To-Toe or the Sampler would be great.

52 Jennifer Womack December 7, 2012 at 11:42 pm

The Peppermint Tea Tree sounds wonderful. I love a refreshing scent that will perk me up in the morning.

53 Leslie December 7, 2012 at 11:44 pm

Citrus sounds like a great way to start the day

54 Kris December 7, 2012 at 11:47 pm

Lavender Oatmeal would be my choice – love all things lavender! The sample pack would be a great gift for my son to give his grandma – thanks.

55 Carrie December 8, 2012 at 12:02 am

The lavender oatmeal soap…

56 Margo December 8, 2012 at 12:06 am

58 Caitlin December 8, 2012 at 12:21 am

Pink grapefruit sounds great! I have very sensitive skin, so I get nervous about switching from my tried and true soaps, but I like the natural sound of this company.

59 Nancy December 8, 2012 at 12:45 am

I think I would like to try the head-t0-toe bar. I think it’s great that it can be used to shampoo.

60 Stacey December 8, 2012 at 12:57 am

The peppermint soap sounds amazing! I’m kind of obsessed with peppermint scents.

61 Stephanie December 8, 2012 at 1:08 am

65 Joy December 8, 2012 at 1:44 am

They sound lovely, just the sort of thing I would be happy to go for. They look wonderful too – perfect for presents.

66 Joy December 8, 2012 at 1:45 am

Just a shame I can’t! :-(

67 Debbie December 8, 2012 at 1:47 am

I am torn between the pink grapefruit and the citrus sunshine. Both sound yummy!

68 Amy December 8, 2012 at 2:01 am

The Citrus sounds amazing! Would love to try these!

69 julie December 8, 2012 at 2:06 am

79 Jennifer h December 8, 2012 at 6:52 am

I would love the peppermint tea tree! My only question – would it be wrong that I smell like my spray cleaner?! Those are the two EOs I usually put in my all purpose spray cleaner :) I love using handmade soaps!

80 Leanne December 8, 2012 at 6:55 am

Definitely Peppermint Tea Tree Oil!

81 Lisa December 8, 2012 at 6:59 am

These sound really good. My choices are Pink Grapefruit and Peppermint Tea Tree. We’ve ordered from a handmade soap place in northern California and really enjoy using their soaps, too.

177 joyce December 8, 2012 at 4:20 pm

I would love the the oatmeal lavendar bar. Mmmm. Lovely. Thanks for offering this.

178 Liz December 8, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Pink Grapefruit sounds refreshing!

179 Susan moeller December 8, 2012 at 5:09 pm

Pink grapefruit

180 Maureen December 8, 2012 at 5:14 pm

I would have to try the pink grapefruit. It reminds me so much of Florida and would brighten my day during the dreary winter months in the North Country.

181 Jeannie December 8, 2012 at 5:14 pm

The Lavender Oatmeal and the Citrus Sunshine fragrances sound wonderful. Merry Christmas!

182 Margy December 8, 2012 at 5:21 pm

Lavender Oatmeal sounds delightful but with all those wonderful ingredients I imagine any scent would be fantastic. Thanks for the opportunity.

190 Heather December 8, 2012 at 8:49 pm

The citrus scent sounds divine and my husband would flip for a chance at using it as well (he is a bit of a citrus nut). Here is hoping!

191 Oakley December 8, 2012 at 8:50 pm

Our family struggles with eczema and allergies…I have been slowly cleaning up our insides with a gluten-free and grain-free diet, but, alas, a few of our kiddos STILL have some lingering eczema and rashes. I have been told that natural soaps, free of parabens and phthalates and such can really make a difference! After reading about these handmade soaps, I would really like to give them a try! The peppermint scent and the lavender oatmeal scent sound the best to me!

192 Jennifer T December 8, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Lavender oatmeal all the way!

193 Alicia December 8, 2012 at 8:55 pm

Probably the pink grapefruit, and it would compliment my shampoo scent. Yum!

194 Kristie December 8, 2012 at 9:22 pm

Citrus would be my choice. I love the scent & it would help wake me up in the morning. Lavender Oatmeal would be the most relaxing for a bath.

195 Jennifer December 8, 2012 at 9:25 pm

As much as I love peppermint, the Pink Grapefruit sounds really intriguing to me! Thanks for the chance!

196 Wilma December 8, 2012 at 9:42 pm

I love the scent of lavendar, so the lavendar oatmeal bar would be great, but i know each scent would be amazing

197 Tina December 8, 2012 at 9:42 pm

Of course the peppermint one!

198 Wilma December 8, 2012 at 9:44 pm

Lavendar oatmeal is one that i would like to use.

199 Wilma December 8, 2012 at 9:54 pm

a mistake, i posted twice by mistake sorry, wilma

200 Heather Anne December 8, 2012 at 9:53 pm

Normally I would choose the Lavendar Oatmeal, but with the dreary weather I am feeling like the Citrus Sunshine would be fantastic to boost the start of my day!

201 Kyra December 8, 2012 at 9:55 pm

226 Sherry Blair December 9, 2012 at 11:08 am

Loved reading about this site and the natural soaps. I love the lavender scent as it tends to be relaxing (and I have a job as a supervisor at a company that I LOVE, but oh! can it be stressful at times–lavender oils to the rescue), so that is what I would pick!

227 Jen December 9, 2012 at 11:49 am

Citrus sunshine sounds yummy!

228 Sarah December 9, 2012 at 12:42 pm

232 Chris Martinelli December 9, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Lavender oatmeal or citrus sunshine would probably go over splendidly at my house!

243 Ashes December 9, 2012 at 7:57 pm

The Citrus sounds lovely to me, although I think if I won it might have to go to my mother as a gift. She has one of those close-to-Chirstmas birthdays, and I think sometimes she gets gypped in the gift department.

244 Gretchen December 9, 2012 at 8:49 pm

I love the idea of using an all natural soap and the citrus sunshine scent sounds absolutely lovely.

245 Allison December 9, 2012 at 8:59 pm

252 Briana December 9, 2012 at 10:27 pm

I would love to try one of these soaps, my daughter has eczema , so we have tried a number of different things, including coconut oil and avocado oil…and I’ve heard that tea tree oil is supposed to be good for you as well, who knows maybe it would help?

257 Jamie December 10, 2012 at 8:23 am

How wonderful! They look amazing!

258 Sam December 10, 2012 at 8:32 am

271 Darcy H December 10, 2012 at 9:34 am

277 Kaitlin December 10, 2012 at 10:24 am

I’d love the grapefruit or peppermint scents!

278 Emily Hollerbach December 10, 2012 at 10:35 am

Love the idea.
Finally someone came up with the three most important ingredients for our older generation skin, as well as the younger. If the younger generation start protecting their skin NOW, they will always have nice skin.
Thank You

289 Marissa Andaloro December 10, 2012 at 12:02 pm

I think the grapefruit scent would be lovely! Merry Christmas!

292 Kim Sanchez December 10, 2012 at 12:36 pm

I bet the Peppermint Tea Tree soap would have a very refresheing smell.
Peppermint is one of my most favorite smells ,I feel that it clears my head and prepares me for my day.
Love the fact that the Third Day folks are so responsible in the manufacturing of their products.

Many thanks -

293 Colleen December 10, 2012 at 12:55 pm

The citrus scent would be wonderful. I just tried making some homemade laundry soap. It’s working wonderfully so far – homemade bar soap would be fun to try!

294 Laura E. December 10, 2012 at 1:06 pm

They all sound like great scents, but if I have to choose one, it would be Citrus Sunshine. I love the natural soaps.

325 Elizabeth Townsend December 10, 2012 at 11:56 pm


The Evergreen would be my 1st choice. (We are moving out of state and are missing the smell of a fresh tree this year, so that scent would be wonderful! ) The Citrus would be my next favorite.

326 EJ Pastwa December 11, 2012 at 12:49 am

Definitely Lavender Oatmeal for me!! Good luck to everyone :)
