Humboldt Soap Company – a winner for me and a giveaway for you

body-butter-poster_0First it took about 2 minutes. Then it took over 8 weeks. Next was about 20 minutes. Last it took 24 hours. What do these numbers mean?

2 minutes = the time it took me to fall and break all the metatarsals on my left foot. (We won’t discuss the hours in the ER!)

8 weeks = the time I was in a soft cast, then a hard cast, and then another soft cast.

20 minutes = the time it took to cut off the soft cast and attempt to scrub away the dry skin that proliferated.

2 days = the time I tried all my lotions and creams yet still ended up with skin that flaked and kept getting worse.

24 hours = the time it took for Humboldt Whipped Shea Body Butter in Peppermint to transform my leg from a scaly mess to a calm and normal looking one.

I always use a lotion, body cream, or body butter on my legs but I never needed one like I did during my recent recovery. I’ve complained about dry winter skin before but nothing compared to what I was experiencing once my casts came off. Finally in the shower I brushed my leg with my Burt’s Bees Foot Brush, exfoliated with Farmhouse Fresh Sweet Cream Sea Salt scrub and applied Humboldt’s Whipped Shea Body Butter. Before bed I slathered it generously on my foot. Just those two times was enough to transform my foot and leg.

I’ve continued using this – not only do I consider it a savior but I really love everything about it. The consistency doesn’t feel whipped, it’s a firm body butter that spreads beautifully without gathering in spots. I can get dressed within minutes without it feeling wet on my legs. That’s because it turns more powder like once on my skin yet magically it moisturizes throughout the day or night.

This is created with natural Shea Butter which gives it the nourishment that I need. Anywhere you have rough skin calls for this whipped body butter. This is available in 11 fragrances plus unscented. I’m not going to tell you the fragrances though because the winner of this giveaway will have to go to Humboldt to see them and choose the one that they liked to win. I chose Peppermint and I love it. It’s not too sweet and doesn’t overwhelm my senses. While some of the scents are made with fragrance most are created with essential oils; peppermint is an essential oil choice. It doesn’t bother me when I go to sleep so it doesn’t interfere with my insomnia. But you’ll have 12 choices to pick from. It won’t be easy.

There are many things to love about Humboldt Soap Company and one is that they are a Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetics Guild Member. Their products are handcrafted in Humboldt County, California by a certified Massage Therapist. They have free shipping and send samples with your order. They manufacture both vegan and unscented products so there’s something for everyone. And their prices are so reasonable. This 4 oz (by volume) jar of Whipped Body Butter is only $10.

The time I’ve spent with Humboldt has been the highlight of December for me. It could be for you too.¬† — Marcia
