Today I bring you a post centered around some natural, cruelty free body care products I recently had the opportunity to try out.
I’m talking about Replenish Soap Company., an Etsy shop that sells natural body scrubs, soaps, lip balms, bath bombs, and scented wax melts.
This company was started after the owner began having breakouts from popular lip balm brands, and decided to begin making her own, without all the unnecessary chemicals typically added to products like this.
So without further ado, let’s get into my thoughts on these products.
First thing I want to talk about is the handmade cold process soap in the Lemongrass scent.
For starters, I really love the packaging on all of these products. It’s simple and classy, but not overwhelming.
But for the actual soap, I typically shy away from scents like this, simply because I tend to prefer more warm, sultry scents. But this one has totally changed my mind on that.
The scent is so fresh and light, perfect for bringing a little spring into your life, especially if you live in Montana….
(So painfully accurate)
This soap works up into a very rich lather, and leaves my skin feeling so incredibly moisturized and clean without stripping my skin, and the lemongrass scent lingers on my skin all day long.
This is going to be a summer staple for me as well, since mosquitoes don’t like lemongrass, and I don’t like mosquitoes.
These soaps are also very multitasking, as you can grate it to use it as a homemade detergent, and would even be suitable to use on your young children, and possibly your pets.
Not to mention, it’s only $6! Affordable and amazing, my favorite.
Next up on the list of products, the Apricot Freesia Salt Scrub
.(This is just a sample size, the full size comes in a 3oz container)
The only “bad” thing I could say about this product is that it isn’t quite abrasive enough for me. I’m not sure if that’s because I had a sample size, but that’s what I assume. I have mild KP on my arms, so my body scrubs need to be pretty harsh to make a huge difference there.If you have normal skin, this will definitely be enough scrubbing power for you. But this softened my skin nicely, and left a beautiful scent on my skin (that mixes well with the lemongrass soap, I might add). The full size of this product is only $5, which absolutely blows my mind. $5 for 3 oz of a natural, preservative free salt scrub is really a heck of a deal, so I will absolutely be purchasing more.
Another scrub I had the opportunity to try is the Vanilla Hazelnut Salt Scrub.
This salt scrub contains actual coffee grounds, so I found this one to be PERFECT for my skin, having a little more scrubbing power due to the grinds.
I think there was a little classical conditioning going on while I was using this, because that coffee smell really wakes me up in the morning. Like the other products, the smell lingers on my skin without being overwhelming, and left more of a creamy coffee scent that basically puts any human being into a state of pure bliss. Especially if you run nearly exclusively on coffee, like myself.
I really, really love this one, and could not recommend it more. I’m really sad to have finished up the sample size, because this is literally the only scrub I want to use anymore, and I’ve been really die hard with my Treehut scrubs for quite some time, but this is just the best one I’ve ever used, and I don’t see myself going back to Treehut any time soon.
And to finish this post up with my favorite product of all, the Creamy Caramel Lip Balm
(Again, LOVE the packaging.)
Confession: I am a lip balm junkie. I have perpetually dry lips so I find myself using lip balm so often that I probably need an intervention. So needless to say, I’ve tried so many different lip balms, but I have never tried one that actually did as much for my lips as this one has.
My boyfriend even tried it and gave me his own mini review, saying it’s “More like a ‘lip lotion’, moisturizing without being greasy, and it tastes great.” So I guess he can just take over my blog, because he’s a pro now, but I totally agree with him.
But this is honestly the best lip balm I’ve ever tried. My lips have never been more smooth and soft than they are right now. It actually shocks me, because I cant remember a time when my lips have ever been this nice, and it’s definitely because of this product.
I don’t want anyone to get the wrong impression; yes, these products were sent to me, but I will never be anything but 100% honest and genuine in my reviews, regardless of where the products have come from. God himself could come down and give me a product to review, and if I don’t like it, I would be honest about it.

I hope y’all have enjoyed this post, and will give Replenish a try. I am so incredibly impressed with everything I tried, and can’t wait to try more of the line, so thank you to Angie for the opportunity!
