Back in October, I was house & animal sitting for my parents while my mom took a girl’s trip to Savannah.  I don’t watch morning shows regularly, but when I do I watch ‘Good Morning America’, preferably on Thursdays so I can watch the ‘Secret Deals and Steals’ segment.  For those of y’all that aren’t familiar with GMA’s ‘Deals and Steals’, they typically feature 5 or 6 amazing products and offer at least a 50% discount promo code that’s good for about 2 days on the participating products.

Well this particular morning, one of the products featured was the Pass Christian Soap Co.’s Lemongrass Hand Soap and Robin from Good Morning America just happens to be from Pass Christian, MS and said this product is a staple in her home.  So you know me and my love for bath & body products, I immediately went on their website and liked everything I saw.  Everything on their site was 50% off, so I narrowed my choices down to 2 products to try and I decided on the “Island Gold” Perfumed Body Wash & Shimmering Body Creme, which they describe as “Warm woods of Patchouli, balsamic sandalwood, sweet creamy vanilla bean combine with green, leafy notes to create our best seller. This exotic blend is sultry and warm. Never overpowering”.

Since they are a small company that make everything in small batches by hand, it took a few extra weeks to receive my stuff due to the overwhelming amount of orders they received from being on GMA, but it was well worth the wait.  I could not open it fast enough to smell it, and it smelled just how I had hoped and I could not wait to use it that evening.  The aromatherapy it gave off in the shower was that of a relaxing, sultry spa.  As if that wasn’t good enough, it got better when I used my body creme-it was hands down one of the best, if not THE best body creme I have used (& that would be a lot of cremes people).  I had never felt so moisturized, luxurious, & silky in my life, WITHOUT feeling greasy.  Aloe Vera, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Chamomile Extract, Vitamin E, & Vitamin C are a few of the ingredients and they speak for themselves.  The potency of the fragrance is perfect, never overpowering but manages to stay with you for hours & on your clothes for days.  I am a satisfied customer and will be ordering more stuff!

Just a little side note:  I don’t know about y’all but I attract bugs and mosquitos like crazy & it doesn’t matter what I may have on my skin:  with lotion, without lotion, with oil, without oil.  I noticed that when I have on my “Island Gold Shimmering Body Creme” that they leave me alone.  I don’t know if it’s one of the essential oils in it that deters them or what or maybe I’m just crazy, but I’m going to keep using it and see what happens :).
