Le Pampered Pig Sponsor Spotlight Review

I love the scent of Lavender in a Goat Milk Soap and when I found out that I was getting one I was over the moon! I love washing my hands in Lavender. It is the most clean, natural, awesome smell that there is in my book. It is a natural scent that is mild and anytime I happen to bring my hands up anywhere near my face I catch the slight whiff of Lavender and I am in awe of the power it has to stay on you for so long.  I am happy that Lavender has now made it's way into the spotlight. I have always loved it. And Le Pampered Pig's is one of the best I have tried.
They have one other soap that I really like also and it's the Black Raspberry Cream. I love the smell and how it looks with the slices of reddish pink running thru it. But my granddaughter loves it even more than I do as it's her signature scent so I will be stuffing this away to give to her in a basket of bath & body products I have been collecting here and there. She will have one of the best baskets ever!  And I know she will adore this soap and use every last bit she can!
Next I tried the Silky Sow Smoothing Oil and I have to admit at first I wasn't too sure about putting an oil on my hands and body but it really does go on like a lotion, just as promised. It has so many nice and clean smells added to it that make it an instant hit with me and my husband who has really dry hands. It has vanilla, almonds, and fresh cream sweetened from wild mountain honey. That was a mouthful to say and write. But, it is exactly what it smelled like! There is no mistaking the almond in that little bottle.
If you know of someone who has extremely dry or even moderate dry skin, these products will work wonders for them. My hands are starting to look a little more normal and my legs aren't so dry and cracked as they were in the beginning. I am going to start using it on the heels of my feet and see if I can get those to look better also. At this point, anything is worth a try.

Lastly, I would like to tell you about the Oinkment. It is in a tubelike cylinder sorta like some of the other foot balms I am sure you have seen around. This one however, is for anywhere, not just the feet!
Actually, they call this the solid lotion but I have always thought of these products as balms but it doesn't matter, as long as you get results, who cares? This is the Oinkment Lotion and you can use it anywhere on the body where you have dry or cracked itchy skin. I am going to use this along with the Smoothing Oil like a one day off and one day the other product to see if I can get the heels of my feet to stop cracking. I have always had this problem as I have gotten older, it has started to really become a problem. I had hoped I would bypass this one trait that runs in my father's side of the family, but I guess not.

I am pretty confident I will find something here at Le Pampered Pig to help me end this worrisome dry itchy feeling. I used to love to wear sandals but not this past year. I wore my sneakers more than anything but am hoping to go back to my sandals next year. You will love everything from this store if any of these products are a sign of what goodies she has left for me to find out about and you, too.

She has been making alot of new stuff lately and I have already told you about one of them in my last review, Foaming Sow Milk for your bath.  I have seen alot of new things on her site so she still has an enormous amount of products that I have yet to touch the surface, so hopefully as time goes on we will all get to experience some of her other delights!

This sounds like a great company and the products look top of the line. The pig is pretty funny too!

I can't help but laugh every time I look at their products. the pig is sooo hilarious! Their soaps sound amazing. I'm really into scented products and love trying different scents. I could use them because in the winter my hands dry out so very much! I'm constantly using lotions!

Allison Downes said...

Sounds like a great company, I got a laugh out of that cute piggy logo :D Too Cute

I have a bad obsession (or addiction I should say) with soap bars, looks like they have some nice ones I want to try out! Thank you for reviewing and sharing with us!

I have to say that after Lavender my favorite scent is Almond. I love it. But the fact that I have the worst dry, patchy skin these last 2 years makes it a no Brainer to try. I'll be checking out their products. Thanks for introducing them to me .

Okay, so the one thing I like more than candles or tea is hand soaps, mostly home/hand made in all sorts of amazing scents, this is a wonderful product!
