I won Ladies and Gentlemen!!!

Yes you read that correct!  I won a giveaway!  lol  Jenn Staz aka BellaPepper53 from YouTube was having a Figs and Rouge giveaway and I was one of the 5 runner ups!

My first ever product from Hip Apotheca, which is even more exciting!

I of course chose Rambling Rose because I love all things rose...  I also love this ingredient list:

Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parki Fruit Butter, Cera Alba, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, *Citral, *Geraniol, *Linalool, *Citronellol, *Limonene (Organically Produced) * (Naturally occurring component of essential oils)

All organic and petroleum free!  It's very soft.  I really dipped my finger into the tin like I do for my Burt's Bees lemon butter cuticle creme.  Oops!   It made my lips feel very soft and I also put some on my 16 month old's lips as they were very dry.  Worked like a charm!

This balm can also be used on the body and hair to tame flyaways.  However, since it is such a small tin, I will save it for the lips!

Hip Apotheca is a relatively new company, basically a one stop on-line shopping experience for all things natural and organic.  They offer a wide range of products, haircare skincare, bath & body, fragrance, accessories, gifts and products for men as well.

I'm intrigued by the skinny skinny Jasmine Dry Shampoo claiming that I may be able to go 3 days in between washing?  Hmm...  1-2 days would be fine with me.  My hair is a bit of a grease bomb, probably because I wash it every day and strip it of all it's natural oils.  Vicious cycle!  :)
