There’s a bakery by my house that often puts out a sandwich-board sign reading, “You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy cupcakes, and that’s kind of the same thing.” Well, I’m all for the occasional cupcake, but there’s only so many times a month (week?) one can eat cupcakes without going into sugar shock. So what’s a girl to do when she’s had her daily allotment of caffeine, and it’s just not the time for a cupcake? I’ve been looking for that special, mid-day treat that can perk me up without side effects or consequences, and…. I’ve found it! It’s a bottle full of happiness!
We met Malaya Organics‘ founder, Katya, along with a thousand other brand-creators at the Indie Beauty Expo last month, but Katya stood out because she’s just so genuinely kind and nice. Then, we actually tried her products– she gave us little samples at the expo– and, wow, both Jordan and I fell in love with the whole Malaya line! It’s truly exceptional.
So which product is my personal Happiness in a Bottle? It’s the Citrus & Bloom Body Oil, and oh my goodness, I can’t stop smelling it. It combines my two favorite scents, florals and citrus, in a fresh, new way. Katya was kind enough to send me a bottle (!!!!) AND she’s agreed to give away one to a lucky reader, too! You can win my version of Happiness in a Bottle– a $68 value!!! (see below for details!)
Here’s what else we’re loving from this small-batch, hand-crafted, woman-owned organic line.
Jordan wrote in an email to Katya:
I started using the rejuvenating face serum this week and am absolutely LOVING it! The smell is addictive and my face feels so soft and smooth. Can’t wait to continue using it over the course of the next few weeks to see continued results!
We also both received the Lip Balm from Malaya and it’s amazing.
And Katya heard I have a new baby and gave me the Organic Soothing Baby Oil to try, and my whole family loves it (it’s not just for babies, but perfect for anyone who needs an oil moisturizer that’s not too scented and very gentle! I’ve used it on my face!).
