Over the last five years or so, I have transitioned from conventional foods and drugstore beauty products to a mostly organic lifestyle. The first change I made was in my diet. Once my daughter was born and especially when she began eating, it was easy to commit to an organic diet. Sorry, GMO’s and pesticides are not meant for my child! But once I got eating organic down pat, I realized that many other parts of my daily life were also harmful to myself and my family. Over time I moved from my drugstore lotion (which I found out is not actually safe for me) and found other organic lotions that did not include harmful chemicals. As I’ve mentioned a couple of times on the blog, my daughter has eczema and my husband has psoriasis and I’m always eager to find natural remedies that help soothe their skin issues. Since I started using all-natural alternatives on my daughter’s skin, her symptoms have completely gone away.
I’m always on the lookout for safe and organic skin care products so when I tried EvaOlivia Organics first hand, I knew it was something I needed to share on the blog. But first I will tell you a bit of background about EvaOlivia Organics… it is a family owned company, devoted to creating organic, high-quality bath products, while causing as little of a negative impact on the planet as possible. Inspiration for soap making first came with the birth of their daughter who was born prematurely whom had very sensitive skin. All soaps are made completely from scratch with raw ingredients and recipes that have been passed down through the generations. These luxurious products are made in small batches, with love and care and ingredients that you can trust are safe for the entire family.

I was sent a basket full of beautiful bath products and here is what I found inside: Skinfully Sweet Body Butter, Bath Salts, Body Polishing Cubes, Sweet Shea Bath and Shower Gel and Lemongrass Bath and Shower Gel.
The Body Polishing Cubes are so great! I tried the peppermint scent which was perfect for perking me up in the mornings, they have a very refreshing smell. They were gentle, yet exfoliating and left my skin feeling very smooth. I used the polishing cubes every other shower and one cube was more than enough for my entire body and my hands were extra soft after using them.
I alternated between the two shower gels, the scents I received were Sweet Shea and Lemongrass. Sweet Shea smells of honey and citrus and Lemongrass smells as you’d imagine, but also has hints of rosemary and lime to make it a uniquely pleasurable scent. The gel was thin and a little went a long way which I really liked. Both shower gels lathered up great and rinsed off the skin, leaving it feeling revitalized and healthy.
The Bath Salts were a nice treat for when I wanted a relaxing bath instead of a shower.
The Body Butter is hands down, ahhhh-maz-ing. I can’t exactly pin point the essential oils used to make the scent, but the smell is very calming and I’m pretty certain there are hints of citrus in there. It looks so good that I literally felt an urge to lick it; it looks just like whipped cream or the frosting on a cinnamon roll. It is a treat to cover my body in such a nourishing concoction after the shower. It moisturized my skin throughout the day and left me smelling great. I like that it doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy or wet, just hydrated. My feet are pretty dry in the summertime because I live in my flip-flops, so I found that smothering my feet with this body butter before bed resulted soft feet by morning! I love, love, love it!
My daughter and husband both really enjoyed using these soaps and lotions as well. I would say that all of bath products had a nice gender-neutral scent to them. The scents were not over powering either, just a nice faint reminder of my luxurious shower. If you are looking for high-quality, organic bath products, I would definitely recommend trying EvaOlivia Organics!
EvaOlivia Organics is generously giving away one gift basket to ONE lucky MinnesotaFromScratch reader! Due to the warm temperature during the summertime, the body butter would melt if shipped so the winner’s basket will include the following: Sweet Shea and Lemongrass shower gels and Peppermint & Eucalyptus, Shea & Honey, and Ruby Red handcrafted soaps. Prize scents are subject to change depending on stock availability at the time the winner’s name is drawn.

I love anything lavender! I am a Minnesota blogger too, I’m following you now. Can’t wait to explore your blog.
Hi Amy! Thanks for visiting. Minnesota is a great place to live, isn’t it? My co-blogger and I grew up in Minneapolis and she still lives there as well, I just live a few minutes away. Such a special city!
Id love to try the Charcoal soap!
Kate Elizabeth says
Lavender is my favorite!! I take a bath at least once a week to wind down. Steph–this might be one of my new “must haves”!
Body Butter (any). Charcoal soap has also been a hit at our house (although it does require extra cleaning in the soap dish)!
