The perfect products for the hazy days of summer and you can find them at Cracker Barrel!

Tons of goodies from Cracker Barrel!

I can’t be the only one. I love Cracker Barrel, and it’s not just for the food. In fact, as much as I love the biscuits and gravy, the yummy green beans, and the to-die-for dumplings, I actually eat pretty quickly so I can get to the real highlight – the shopping afterwards! I have a number of beautiful picture frames and angels (I collect angels and Cracker Barrel always has some fabulous ones) that I bought there, not to mention several clothing items. The old-time candy is always fun too, but the real highlight is of course the body products!! Today I have a few goodies that Cracker Barrel sent me that are just perfect for celebrating these last hazy days of summer.

I love the Burt’s Bees line, and am always perusing it at Cracker Barrel. A few of my favorites include the Garden Tomato Toner which is very refreshing particularly if you tend toward oily skin. I also always pick up the Eye Makeup Remover Pads, which are cool because they are soaked in kiwi water. They are also a unique shape that reaches all corners of the eye and these pads remove even the most stubborn waterproof eye makeup.  I’m also a big fan of the Res-Q Ointment which saves dry, damaged skin. Plant oils and vitamin E are so soothing and I always keep a tin of this around particularly when I’m doing lots of gardening.With the summer heat, lips and hands need attention. You can find J.R. Watkins Beeswax Lip Balm at Cracker Barrel and I love all the flavors. Peppermint is a wonderfully cooling one that is great for summertime. I also adore the Dionis line and always buy some when I am there. I can never have enough hand cream.  The Goat Milk Hand Cream is really fantastic. This one is Mediterranean Blue Tea, which is new for me – I usually go for the Vanilla Bean – and this is a wonderful mix of blue tea leaves, iris, and cardamom. It’s a subtle and sophisticated scent that has totally won me over.

Did you know that you can shop all the wonderful lines that Cracker Barrel carries online?  I didn’t either. Check out their website at shop.crackerbarrel.com for Burt’s Bees, J.R. Watkins, Dionis, and plenty more – including the decor, clothing, and nostalgia candy items. You can even buy those amazing rocking chairs that are outside every Cracker Barrel. Of course, it’s not as fun as eating a big plate of dumplings then wandering about in a food coma and shopping in person…but it is the next best thing. And if you can get to Cracker Barrel in person, be sure to take a look at all the great items they have to get you through the last lazy, hazy days of summer.  – Lisa

  2. I’ve only gone to Cracker Barrel once when I was in Charlotte NC on a business trip. I met a FB friend there for breakfast. We went into the shop and I was blown away! I bought two cute tops that I still wear today. I didn’t realize they sold beauty products too. Dionis is one of my favorite brands of hand cream – got some in my purse now!

    I have not been to Cracker Barrel in quite a while. The food always reminds me of my southern grandparents meals. I have been meaning to try the tomato toner, time to plan a trip to Cracker Barrel.
