Customer Review: Eucalyptus Mint Lime Salt Soak

Eucalyptus Mint Lime Salt Soak, Reviewed by Vanessa, PA

I opened my tiny mailbox one day and was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful smell coming from a package from Good Fortune. I recognized the smell of mint and lime right away as it filled my vestibule. I opened the package in my apartment and let it sit in my bedroom for a few days because I liked the combination scent of eucalyptus, mint, and lime so much. The scent filled the room like a burning candle, without thedanger!

When I finally had time, I drew myself a nice hot bath and sprinkled the mineral salts in the water shortly before I got in. The scent was so relaxing and wonderful and I could feel the salts just melting under me. I never usually stay in the bath very long, but I added an extra handful of the salts just because it was so lovely! When I got out there was no smelly residue or heavy scent left on me from the salts (I hate that!). The scent lingered on just long enough for me to finish enjoying and didn't rub off on my clothes or overpower my regular perfume.

I would recommend these salts to anyone! I really, really loved the scent. I have used a eucalyptus and mint bubble bath before from a chain store but I much prefer this product and scent. The added lime gives it such a burst of freshness. Does this come in a candle? I would definitely buy that! (It sure does! Look here.)

Thank you so much for letting me test your product! I do have a few suggestions...The directions we pretty small and hard to find, though I assume most people know how to use bath salts. And the packaging, though lovely, was a little hard t
o use. I would probably pour them into a jar just to make it a little easier to pour into the tub. (We took her advice, check out our new packaging!)

I would definitely use the cute organza bag it came in again, to package a small gift or a gift card, so I appreciate that the packaging is reusable. I also really appreciate small businesses and try to support them as much as possible. And giving handmade, or local items, to me is much more personal. It means you didn't just do some quick one stop shopping at a mall, you actually took the time to pick something out with a certain person in mind.

Good Fortune Natural Soap Q & A

Q. Eco-friendly? What’s that all about?

Thinking green is a way of life for us. After all, it’s our duty to take care of this planet! Good Fortune supports clean and responsible living, while caring for each other and our beautiful earth. Our goal is to create less waste, consume less material, and use less energy. We understand that even the smallest steps to taking care of the environment make a big difference.

Ways we strive to be efficient:
• 100% percent post-consumer paper for printed materials, whenever possible
• Recyclable and/or biodegradable plastics, paper, aluminum and corrugated cardboard for packaging
• Recycle shipping boxes and use recycled paper as the cushioning material in all our outgoing shipments
• Educate customers on natural ingredients
• Recycle all of our incoming waste
• Eco-friendly biodegradable formulations for our products
• Reuse everyday materials for soap molds or organizing trays
• Use cotton rags instead of paper towels, whenever possible
• Rely on digital documents rather than paper trails
• Use all natural cleaners

Q. Are your products all-natural?
Yes and no. As with any product, reading labels is important. Yes, because our products contain mostly plant derived materials. No, because we use colorants and fragrances that are considered in-organic material, and are not directly from the earth. Our goal is to use the highest quality skin nourishing ingredients, fragrances, and herbs that have been approved for use on skin. We never use harsh detergents, synthetic preservatives, phosphates or parabens.

Q. Why handcrafted natural soap is better?

We use real oils and real ingredients. Take time to read a soap label at the drugstore.... Notice the ingredients you can’t pronounce, mineral oils, harsh preservatives, and artificial colors. How can you get your skin clean with ingredients like that? Instead, Good Fortune uses natural plant-based ingredients that nourish and cleanse without drying or irritating, and still prove effective against germs and dirt, but gently!

The ingredients in Good Fortune products come from the world God gave us, not a test tube: 100% vegetable oils and essential oils, clays, honey, shea butter, and natural exfoliants such as oatmeal and lentils. The higher price of these ingredients is a small price to pay when it comes to the quality we provide.

We carefully select botanicals and nutrients to nourish the skin without harsh ingredients. Our advice is to learn the main chemicals to avoid, and then check the product ingredient label.

Here are a few we don’t like:
  • Animal Tallow (not a chemical, but we prefer to use vegetable bases)
  • Petroleum products – you know, mineral oil, the overuse of fossil fuels? Not cool. Go check your drugstore lip balm, lip gloss, and baby oil—GF uses beeswax instead! Mineral oil prevents the skin from breathing, and it blocks the absorption of the good stuff from soaking in.
  • Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS): Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is considered to be an irritant to the skin, especially when used frequently, and is commonly used to provide lather in shampoos, soaps and bubble bath.
  • Fragrance oils and dyes: Fragrance oils and dyes are synthetic and can cause sensitivities in some individuals. Commercial products are often loaded cheap synthetic fragrances and colors. GF offers high quality fragrance oils in order to give our scent-obsessed customers that ‘apple’ scent you can only get from an fragrance oil. We use our FO’s sparingly and add the lowest percentage to recipes to help avoid any skin irritation.
With all of this, why go anywhere else?

The Truth Behind Chapped Lips

So why is it that our lips get chapped? What's up with that?

The truth is - our lips don't shed, causing them to become chapped. According to MSNBC, subconsciously licking lips also causes them to chap. Saliva contains acid, so licking lips can dehydrate the thin layer of skin, leaving them rough and dry.

To keep lips smooth and soft, it's very important to not only moisturize, but to exfoliate as well.

Good Fortune knows that the upcoming winter months will bring back those dry lips we all dread, so we found a solution!

Our Brown Sugar Vanilla Lip Scrub is a great way to exfoliate. Simply rub on lips, then lick off! After you're done scrubbing, follow up with one of our moisturizing natural lip balms. There's no better way to take care of your lips - naturally.

Our recipes are 100% natural, and for limited time, our natural lip scrub is on sale for HALF OFF! These make a great stocking stuffer, or gift for a friend. But don't forget to pick one up for yourself!

Customer Review: Natural Lip Scrub

Reviewed by Lisa, Ohio

I love your products and the kiss me kit is no exception. My lips are soft and my mind is at ease because I know it is made with good ingredients. I love that your products are made with natural ingredients by people who care about their customers.

I use the Kiss Me Kit every night before bed and I use the natural lip balm throughout the day. I use the Applejack Element Spray and we have a faucet soap in our shower.

When my kit arrived in the mail my 3 year old couldn't wait to try it. He put it on himself, his 10 month old brother and mom and dad. I love that I didn't have to worry about him using it. He loves that he can lick it off. We all have the softest lips in town!
