Beesilk Dry Skin Care

I was recently contacted by Renee at MadeOn Hard Lotion to ask if I would like to try one of her hand made lotion bars. She calls it "beesilk" and for good reason!

She makes the bars with beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil, so they are all natural. The bar is softly scented by the beeswax, so that it smells of honey, and it is super silky on the skin.

I love the way the bar makes my skin feel luxuriously soft!

Renee would like to give away the 3 pack dry skin care package above, which includes a family size lotion bar, a pocket size lotion bar, and a lip balm.

You can enter up to three times to win this package.  (Please, leave a comment for each entry.)

  • Simply go to her hard lotion site and have a look around. Then come back here and tell me which essential oil you would add to a lotion bar if you were ordering a custom one. (Scroll down and look on the left side bar.)

  1. I would have to try the peppermint essential oil. I have other peppermint body washes and love using them afterworking outside since they are cooling. I don’t have any all natural and would love to give these a try.

    Love your blog!

  2. I’d say probably lemongrass. I LOVE lemongrass!!

  3. I would add Tea Tree Oil. I love what healing properties it has. And I would love to win! :)

  4. I would add lemon–but since that wasn’t listed I would definitely go for Lemongrass.

  5. I tweeted this and I would love to win!

  6. I would add vanilla. Thanks.

  7. Lavendar here!

    I love good soap.

    Sweet pea!

  9. Lisa Beth W. says:

    Oooooh, lemongrass! Or vanilla. Or peppermint. Or eucalyptus…or…:)

  10. Love your blog! I would like the Eucalyptus, or any other! This sounds fabulous. Thanks for sharing. Oh, and pick me, pick me! :~)

  11. If almond were a choice, I’d go with that. It wasn’t, so I voted lavender.

  12. Not on FB or Twitter, but I know I’d want peppermint. Love how invigorating it feels!

  13. Definitely lavendar!

  14. I would love to try these! It’s so hard to pick a good scent, but I think I would choose peppermint. I “heart” everything peppermint. Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  15. Peppermint would be my choice- love mint! But for a flowery scent, sweet pea would be delicious, yum!

  16. I can’t decide if I would choose Eucalyptus or Lavender- Eucalyptus is supposed to help with stress and Lavender is supposed to help with calming, and I need both since I have 5 children under 4 and one on the way :). I’ve only given birth to 2 of them (2 are adopted and 1 is foster-to-hopefully-adopt) but I had severe preeclampsia with both of them and am doing everything natural possible to keep my blood pressure stable. Okay, so you probably didn’t need to know all that, but while I’m at it, I’ve been having great success with magnesium- so if anybody reads this and knows anything about it I would love advice/comments/success stories :).

      Kate, I had eclampsia with my second child. I was induced three days late b/c of my high blood pressure, and about seven hours or so after she was born, I had grand mal seizures and spent a couple of days in ICU. After that, I researched and took magnesium and other things with my next pregnancy, including a lot of protein.I’m sorry I don’t remember all the specifics (it was back in 1998), but I just want to encourage you with my story. Of course only God knows what helped, but He graciously kept me and I have never had a problem with pre-eclampsia or eclampsia since, through four more pregnancies!

  17. And I posted about it on facebook :).

  18. I would choose lavender…. because I love lavender.

  19. Lemongrass would be nice! These seem like great products!

  20. Mikenzie says:

    Lavender, lavender, lavender. Nothing is better than that! I have a lavender plant growing in my garden and my kids and I just can’t get enough!

  21. Elizabeth says:

    Oh I would so do eucalyptus! This stuff looks amazing!

  22. I would love to try this sounds great I would choose the orange .

  23. Heather Sutton says:

    I would choose lemongrass, or lavendar, or vanilla or sweet pea! I love all those scents, too hard to choose!

  24. Heather says:

    Nothing beats Lavender!!! So soothing!

  25. vanilla is my choice.

  26. I would love vanilla and my next choice would be peppermint! Love your blog!

  27. oooh, the vanilla sounds wonderful. I have a daughter with very sensitive skin, this would be perfect for her. :)

  28. Oh the sweet pea please:) Great giveaway! I would love to try this!

  29. Lori Lynn says:

    I would add lavendar!

  30. Lori Lynn says:

    Posted the giveaway on Facebook!

  31. My choice would be orange. It’s not a popular scent on your comments, but I think it’s a scent that “wakes you up”. With 4 children under 5 you know I have cracked skin from washing my hands ALL the time, so I would love to be a winner!

  32. mmm…peppermint sounds good on a hot day like today. lotion bars are wonderful!

  33. I would add orange because I like the uplifting scent- it makes me smile. But I would actually like a bar with each oil for different occasions. Wow! thanks for sharing this site and doing this giveaway

  35. Heather says:

    They all sound lovely, but I would pick lavendar!!

  36. Rebecca says:

    Either lavender or vanilla.

  37. I would love Vanilla or Cinnamon.

  38. Eucalyptus or cinnamon-yum!

  39. I can’t decide between peppermint and sweet pea. Yum!

  40. rebecca says:

    I like the almond idea up above. I would most likely choose unscented, maybe lavender. I wonder how well the bug scents work as well:)

  41. Sweetpea for sure!

  42. Renea Harrin says:

    I would pick orange to add to mine!!! These products sound so awesome.

  43. Jennifer says:

    Jasmine, definitely! It’s one of the rarer oils, so while I have many lavender scented things, I don’t have any jasmine.

  44. Merry Jo says:

    I think I might add lavendar. Thanks for the chance! :)
