Product Rave: Pretty & Perky

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

I'm actually pretty new to Etsy. I understood the premise, but never gave it much a peruse until recently and now I'm absolutely smitten. I have been loving finding unique items from handmade creators. Lately, I've been totally obsessed with wax melts and that was how I stumbled upon Pretty & Perky on instagram
I saw that they had a shop on Etsy and immediately added the Cookie Collection Wax Melts to my cart. I mean they're wax melts in cookie scents, how could I not? The collection included Graham Cracker, Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie, Sugar Cookie, Iced Lemon Cookie and Iced Oatmeal Cookie. After trying each of them out, my two favorites have to be Iced Lemon Cookie and Iced Oatmeal Cookie. They smell absolutely delicious, are true to scent and the throw lasts for days of melting. I am totally going to be stocking on on these to melt throughout Fall!
 Jen, the shop owner of Pretty & Perky asked if she could send along some samples of products I might like to try with my purchase. How could I say no to that? She sent along a wide variety of their products, including a few that have yet to be released in their shop. Two of the samples were full size chunks of their best selling soaps, Blue Lagoon & the unscented Goats Milk Loofah Soap. I love the Blue Lagoon Soap! It has such calming scent notes of fresh ocean air, salty sea water and green forest. It's the perfect scent for those looking for something that leaves you feeling fresh and clean. It also has a little pumice stone edge on the side of the soap that is great for exfoliating my overworked feet. I ended up giving the unscented soap to my boyfriend to try since he's always on the hunt for good, unscented items and he's been loving it. He says it's super moisturizing and loves the exfoliation that the built in loofah provides. By far, one of my favorite samples that Jen sent over was the Creamy Pumpkin Lip Balm! During Fall, I'm completely obsessed with pumpkin scents so this was perfect for me (she must be psychic!). It has a super delicious pumpkiny scent with just a touch of whipped of cream. It does a good job of keeping my lips moisturized.
 Jen was also nice enough to send along two of her newest products that weren't yet available in their Etsy shop. She sent along the Daydream Solid Sugar Scrubs and Heartbreaker Shower Cream. The Daydream Solid Sugar Scrub is awesome for daily exfoliation in the shower or during a long bath. I love that I just need to let it dry out during the day, but then I can use it over and over. It's also lightly scented so it's perfect for those who don't like heavy scented body products. I haven't been able to try out the other two samples of soap just yet, the French Maid and Golden Bamboo, but I took quick sniffs and they both smell awesome.
My other absolutely favorite sample that Jen sent along was the Heartbreaker Shower Cream soap. They described the scent as a mix of juicy ripe strawberries and sparkling champagne. The container was so cute when I opened it; it had a layer of bright sparkles on top and looked deliciously creamy. After a couples weeks of using it, I have to say it's awesome. It is super moisturizing and lathers up really well.
All in all, I was so impressed with my first recent Etsy purchase. My love of bath, body and deliciously scented products found a match in Pretty and Perky! Check them out on Facebook and then check out all of the awesome products in their Etsy shop.
