Maple Hill Naturals

As I have said time and time again, shower time is one of my favorite times. There is no better feeling than hopping out of the shower all squeaky clean and relaxed. Like most of you, I love trying all sorts of new shower goodies to get the most out of my shower time. Recently, I was able to try Maple Hill Naturals and I am quite surprised by just how much I enjoyed these products. The best part about their products? All of them contain no harsh chemicals, phthalates, or artificial colors. They are also biodegradable, gluten free, aren't tested on animals and contain no animal products!

I was sent the Lavender Vanilla Dream Gift Set to try. The set included a Vanilla Dream Lip Balm, a Lavender Vanilla Dream Shampoo & Conditioning Bar, and a Lavender Vanilla Dream Essential Oil Soap. The first product I tried was the lip balm and it is pretty awesome. It has a light, sweet scent that isn't overbearing on the lips. It keeps your lips protected and moisturized without being overly thick and sticky. I have been using this as my daily lip balm and I love it. My lips are super soft!

The most intriguing part of this kit was Shampoo & Conditioning Bar. Honestly, I have never used a shampoo bar before this and I was a little skeptical. I didn't think this little bar was going to wash AND condition my hair but man was I wrong! This little bar is awesome! It leaves my hair soft, clean, and easy to maintain and brush. I rubbed the bar on the top of my head and it lathered up great! It was also really easy to rinse out. In addition to all of this, it also doesn't strip my hair! I was, and still am, very impressed with this bar shampoo. I really recommend this product!

I, obviously, don't refuse to use bar soap but I usually gravitate towards shower gels. A lot of the soap bars in the stores leave my skin feeling striped and dry. This Essential Oil Soap does the complete opposite. It leaves my skin feels soft, moisturized, and, most importantly, clean! The oats in the bar gently exfoliate while you wash which I love because I am an exfoliating addict! Other bar soaps don't later very well but, yet again, this bar is different. I got a great lather both when washing with the bar itself, and when I used my loofah. It also leaves a light, relaxing scent on your skin which is great for right before bed.

The last item was something pretty interesting as well. It is called the Crud Eraser and claimed to be able to cut through grease, paint, dirt, and grime. To help the soap, this bar also contains oats and pumice. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it really did cut through grime. It washed all sorts of different messes off of my family's hands with ease. I also liked that there wasn't a strong scent. Honestly, I didn't notice a scent at all. The men in my house aren't as excited about good smelling soap as I am. They just want to be clean and not walk around smelling like perfume. This bar does just that. It also keeps their callused man-hands pretty soft! 

I am really enjoying everything I received from Maple Hill Naturals. I thoroughly recommend this brand to anyone looking for natural alternatives to the chemical filled gunk sold in most stores. Even if you aren't actively looking for alternatives, try these products. I promise you won't be disappointed. Also, be sure to follow Maple Hill Naturals on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on news, new products, giveaways, and promotions!
