The Homestead Company {giveaway!!}

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION
A WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY


As I read the 'about us' page of The Homestead Company, I was so excited to see the down-to-earth ideals and values employed by this company. This is not a company that is in it for mass production. This company is not about looking for the cheapest way of producing their products.

The Homestead Company wants to reach other parents and people who share the belief that there's no substitute for Mother Nature. Every product developed by The Homestead Company is made with a specific purpose in mind and to target a unique skin condition or problem. The Homestead Company doesn't take short cuts, chances or risks when it comes to health and nutrition.

Moreover, before these products ever reach any of their customers, they are used on Melanie Nader's own family. This is how she knows this is the best that can be offered!
MY REVIEW
When I first began looking through the products offered by The Homestead Company, I immediately noticed the great selection of baby and mommy-to-be products.

While I am now out of the stage in my life, it really isn't that far in the past. I looked with interest at products such as belly oil, baby balm, and diaper rash oil. I found myself wondering where these great products were when I needed them, and was looking for them...but just wasn't able to find them.

Even though those days are behind me, at least now I have a resource to share with family members who are still in that stage.

Because baby days are behind me, it has become all about me. (as if) For review, The Homestead Company generously sent me two products. (and I only asked for one, so when I say generous, I mean it)

I received Whipped Body Butter Scrub and Whipped Body Butter both from the Homestead Spa collection.Whipped Body Butter Scrub is a wonderful all natural product, ingredients include such things as raw shea butter, aloe oil, cocoa butter and avocado butter. I challenge you to take a look at the commercially made bath/shower gel or scrub that you have in your shower right now...I would be willing to bet these are not in their ingredient list.

And with these all natural ingredients combined in the patented formula exclusive to The Homestead Company, I am also willing to bet this is why my skin feels so different.

After only a few applications I noticed my skin to become less dry and itchy. It is November, here in Ontario...not a good combination for skin. But, my skin has never felt so healthy. I am typically a person with dry skin, so this is a wonderful product for me!

As a follow up to the body scrub, I am now using the Whipped Body Butter. I have used body butters previously from chain stores. First, the chain stores body butters are more costly than The Homestead Spa's, and they became even more expensive since I didn't use them. I always found the chain store's to be so greasy. In comparison, the Homestead Spa's goes on smooth, with a natural aroma. It disappears into my skin with no greasy residue, leaving skin that feels soft and smooth.

Thank you to The Homestead Company for making me more comfortable in my own skin.

Literally!


~buy it~Do yourself a favour, as the colder months are approaching, treat yourself to a purchase from The Homestead Company. With their unconditional guarantee, you can be confident in your purchase. The Homestead Company is so certain that you are going to love their products, they are willing to offer a full refund within 60 days.

Be sure to check out the two products I reviewed. The body scrub sells of $18.99 (US) and the body butter sells for $14.99 (US). Don't forget you can qualify for free shipping (US) when you make a purchase of $25.00!


~gift it~The Homestead Company has some great ideas for gift sets. To make it even better there are gifts sets on sale right now. The Homestead Company's Foot Spa Gift Set is on sale for $22.49. Women or men, who doesn't love a little foot pampering?
Or for that new mom and baby, take a look at the Mommy and Baby Gift/Starter Kit.

For those who just can't decide, gift certificates are always a great option, and always welcomed!


~win it~Thank you to The Homestead Company, one lucky Country Mouse, City Mouse reader is going to win a $40.00 gift certificate to put toward a purchase.
