Reviews & Giveaways
The weather in Wisconsin is finicky to say the very least. This week we went from more than thirty below zero for two days, to nearly forty degrees four days later. Needless to say, that when this happens a week after you had a lot of snow, it is wet, slushy and a bit slippery! When the weather turns like this, it is often this time of year that I stop wearing high heels to work or out for fun because I hate hauling around my giant snowboots in the “in between” weather and typically galoshes are just as big and cumbersome to tote around as snowboots. So when I heard about PYSIS, the fashion-forward, unique-design galoshes, I knew I this was something I had to learn more about! I received a pair of PYSIS overboot galoshes in exchange for my honest opinion.
I am obsessed with taking baths right now! I literally went years without even giving a second thought to taking a bath, let alone a long soak in the tub and now I probably take two, three or more in a week! I love to set up my iPad on a chair in the bathroom and get caught up on my favorite shows (or play Plants vs Zombies), drink a glass of wine and just enjoy the comfort of the warm water and the scent of my bath products. Since I started this new relaxing habit a couple of months ago, I have been searching for all-natural bath products that would not cost me an arm and a leg since I was going to be using them so regularly. Fortunately, I found a fantastic Etsy shop, Cottage in the Woods Co, that makes all-natural bath products (and cleaning products, oh and tutus, too!) that are affordable! I received some all-natural bath products in exchange for my honest opinion.
What did I think?
I must say, I just love the concept behind Cottage in the Woods Co! This husband and wife team make all-natural bath products and cleaning products by hand! Their team effort results in high-quality, easy to use and affordable products that should be in everyone’s homes! Not only do they strive to use all-natural ingredients in their products, but they also attempt to incorporate as many green practices into their business as possible – so you may find your bath fizzies wrapped in last week’s newspaper or your body wash arrive in a recycled box!
I received the following all-natural bath products from Cottage in the Woods Co: body wash, bath fizzies (aka bath bombs) and a shampoo bar. What I love about Cottage in the Woods Co is that you can pick any scent you want for your products and they will mix you up a custom batch! I have been crazy for lavender lately, so I decided to take a step away from my usual and change it up a bit! I received Vanilla Tangerine body wash and Vanilla Orange bath bombs. Can I just tell you how great these are? The body wash foams at just the right amount and leaves a fresh scent on your skin when you rinse it away. Using essential oils, coconut oil, and even sunflower oil – you can be sure that you skin will be soft and smooth after washing with this body wash!

Taking a nice hot bubble bath is one of the best ways to relax after a long day or week. But who wants to soak in a tub full of harsh chemicals that are tough on your skin and may have other ill-effects down the road from absorption? Krista from both Savory Savings and Gloriously Green Gal is a big fan of baths, but worried what her bath products had in store for herself and her kids, but when she got a chance to review Cottage in the Woods Co’s all-natural bath products, she knew she had found a win! These luxurious and affordable products made by the husband and wife duo behind Cottage in the Woods Co are available in custom scents and use all-natural ingredients. They even have cold and flu bath bombs that help clear congestion so you can rest easier while sick!
