Not Soap, Radio -- Review & Giveaway

Because sometimes money can buy happiness! This is the 'Oh So True' motto of Not Soap, Radio! Happiness can come in many different shapes - Could be that one of a kind vacation to a beautiful place in a country or place outside of what you're used to! Or, it could be that special 'never available' relax and pamper yourself time! Well, what if you could combine the two, and take yourself away to a far away beautiful place, and pamper yourself all at the same time! Not Soap, Radio has made that possible! You can take a trip to the spa from your bathroom! You could take a mountain retreat in your jacuzzi! You could even lounge poolside on a beachfront resort in your living room!

A lil info about Not Soap, Radio!

This company was started by 2 awesome sisters, Laura & Suzanne, and their love for creation! Their mother used to put them in the bathtub together, and they would create bath oil and gels out of soaps, crazy foam, water, and markers!! They would then bottle their concoctions, and sell them like other kids sold lemonade! Who knew this would be the start of a beautiful business adventure for them both! Laura has traveled across the country working in an array of categories from fashion, to beauty, politics, and even worked in the public relations department of Vogue. Suzanne has worked for the past six years in fashion, and with non-profit organizations. 




My Review!

Not Soap, Radio sent me the set 'I'm Not Here, I'm Really on Holiday in Tuscany!'
I was so excited when Laura contacted me about this review. I had never heard of the company but when i did a little research i noticed that they were a growing company and had been featured in several magazines that i have read! A few that they were mentioned in were Rachel Ray Mag, Allure, O, InStyle, and have also been feature on the Today Show! How did I miss this?! I was super ready, as I am one that likes to pamper myself whenever I get the chance. Stress from work, and kids can run your body down - and it's up to you to take even that 10 extra minutes to relax, and give your body the treatment it needs! Not to mention, that it feels sooooo good! =) 

The set included: Sugared Body Polish, Body Souffle, and a Dry Oil Spray! This set has a really light, citrusy, but not overbearing scent. It's a mixture of tangerine, neroli, bergamot, lime, and sweet tea leaves! I can really smell the lime, and somewhat of the sweet tea - but all together makes a really soothing, calming scent that will definitely please your 'nose buds' lol!



Sugared Body Polish


Ok, so I love body polishes/scrub especially ones with sugar,... and with an added bonus like cranberry seeds you can't go wrong! Sugar scrubs are softer than salt scrubs, and more gentle, therefore are perfect for people with sensitive skin. Sugar dissolves in hot water, which makes it less abrasive than salt. And the BEST reason to use sugar scrub is ......Sugar is used for cellulite scrubs!!! The granular crystals are WONDERFUL for exfoliating dead cellulite, and for smoothing your skin tone! If that doesn't sell you i don't know what will, lol!


Body Souffle


Ladies - With winter time coming soon, we really have to make sure we take care of our skin! The harsh weather can dry out your skin - dry skin results in itching, which can interrupt sleep & daily functions. Repeated scratching can cause patches of rough skin - Dry, rough skin can then crack (especially hands & feet). It can then become inflamed, and scaly...and the result in eczema...and then a bacterial infection occur! Scary? Yes! But all this just because you did not MOISTURIZE your skin! This souffle is perfect for this because, it is a thick moisturizing cream. Creams are better than lotion because of their thickness, and they stay on your skin longer! This is a must have for my skin!


Dry Oil Spray


Ok - I will admit - I never use a body oil after i get out of the shower/tub! I know the benefits of using it, but it always seems to leave me oily, and somehow get to my hair! I wash my hands after applying it, and style my hair but by that time my hair has sucked up the oil from  my body, and looks oily all over again! I did NOT have this problem with the dry oil spray! Maybe it's that 'dry' ingredient, lol. I applied this when getting out of the shower, sprayed lightly all over, rubbed in, and washed my hands! By the time i dried my hands off the spray was already dry, and left a nice sheen glistening look on my legs ( like you see on those supermodels legs) BUT it was not oily! I had to double check by grabbing a paper towel & running it over my arms, -- nothing! I was amazed, yes, amazed. It leaves a fresh smelling scent, that lasted through the work day. This product is A-Ok in my book!


All in All - This company has my 100% love, and commitment to their products! I was skeptical at first, because i have sold spa products & smell goods before... but i am thoroughly pleased with all 3 products that were sent to me! I will be driving down the Not Soap, Radio Road soon to explore the other scents they have in their 'I'm not here, I'm really .... ' line. They have won me over ......and Now is your chance to join in my bliss!!

  9. Ok, it is near IMPOSSIBLE 2 choose just one product to be my fav. So, i'm going to choose 2 lol. I think it's a tie between the "you're the greatest little sister" lip balm and "happy hour" lip gloss.
