Happy 2013, friends!! I can’t think of a better way to ring in the new year than by introducing a favorite new natural skincare line. Wait, yes I can–a GIVEAWAY!!!! But first, let me gush about these crazy good products.
Splurge was started in 2010 by two friends in Massachusetts who began making their awesome scrubs for their friends for Christmas gifts. They were so loved that the hobby turned into a business which now sells three incredible products: the scrubs, lip balms, and their new tinted lip balms.
The scrubs currently come in 4 scents: almond, peppermint, lemon, and Autumn. Winter will be released soon and if it smells as heavenly as the other four scents, I know it will be a hit. My personal favorite is the Autumn, which is spicy, sweet (but not too sweet), and warming on your skin. It has essential oils of orange, clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg and I assure you it’s a delightful treat year-round! Emily’s favorite scent is lemon…or peppermint (it’s too hard to decide!). These scrubs are really a special treat–a splurge, I suppose at $26 each, but such a worthwhile splurge. Emily and I agree that they are quite possibly the best body scrubs we’ve ever tried. If ever there were a time to splurge on a quality gift for yourself, the new year is it.
The next product is not a splurge, it’s a necessity. The Lip Buttahs are hands down the BEST, most moisturizing lip balms we’ve ever tried (and we’ve tried a lot!). The balms are $7 each and I think I would pay more because they’re that incredible. They are available in four scents as well: Peppermint, Almond, Lemon, and Orange Chocolate. It doesn’t matter which scent you choose, they’re all equally soothing on your dry, winter lips. I also appreciate the shape of the tubes which are oval rather than round, which I think covers more surface area of our lips, so you only need one swipe on each lip. Emily and I seriously can’t get enough of these superb balms.
Now, on to the fun news–the giveaway!!! Splurge just recently launched their new tinted Lip Buttahs and we get to give away a set to one lucky reader. The tinted balms are just as moisturizing as the traditional Lip Buttahs, but with just a slight hint of color (so don’t be afraid if you’re applying it without a mirror–you won’t look like a clown if you go out of the lines!). The colors are available in three sheer shades: In Love (a soft pink), Fling (a sheer red), and Going Steady (an earthy nude). Want to try out these incredible lip balms for yourself? All you have to do is leave a comment below! For bonus entries, “like” Splurge’s Facebook page and/or follow their Twitter feed (just tell us in the comments what you did and we’ll add those entries for you). The contest will end a week from today on Tuesday, 1/8/13 at midnight EST. The winner will receive a set of the new Tinted Lip Buttahs (one of each color) and will be announced on Wednesday morning, 1/9. Good luck and a happy, healthy new year to everyone!
