Perfectly Pampered for the Holidays in Perfectly Posh by Jules! #Review + $20.00 GC #Giveaway #MBPHGG16



Thank you to Julie Ratzlaff for providing me with product, free of charge. All thoughts and opinions shared are my own.



Okay, ladies... this is what you've been waiting for- a personal guide to some of the most wonderful pampering products available! If you're like me, you're a busy gal. I have two kids, run a full-time business from home, and have lots of volunteer responsibilities on my weekly plate. Baby S is still figuring out when she wants to sleep (which means I get zero sleep at night), and is teething, so finding time for myself seems nearly impossible. Every now and then, I get lucky. After Baby S was born, I really fell into a trap of neglecting my own needs. A woman's body goes through so many changes during pregnancy and afterward... from hormonal shifts to hair loss and dry skin (among other things). I was desperate to find some products to help me feel like my very best self again, and that's where Perfectly Posh came in.

So, Julie Ratzlaff and I connected on Facebook a long time ago. Julie is a wonderful lady, a phenomenal business woman, and she has her own Posh business. Julie loves to help others discover awesome products that they want to use in their daily lives. Perfectly Posh products are wonderful products that pamper, heal, and they're products that you can feel good about using.

About Perfectly Posh:

For as long as a girl has needed to care for her skin, she could find FUN products and she could find GOOD products, but it was difficult to find products that were both fun AND good. Perfectly Posh offers products you'll feel good about putting on your skin. We feature:

Pampering products made in the USA
Gentle, natural ingredients
No parabens, paraffins, sulfates, lanolin, or fillers
Lots of natural butters and essential oils
Many vegan options
No animal testing


It's a product line that's designed to pamper and nothing else.



Julie sent me an awesome package of Posh goodies. I loved the cute mailing telling me I had 'Jules Mail!'



My box from Julie was loaded with Posh products and a few extra goodies, too!


My little info packet from Julie- a personal note, instructions for the mini facial, and a personalized guide to all of my Posh products!

I was so impressed that Julie took the time to put all of this information together for me. I have never worked with a more organized gal, who pays extra attention to detail and goes that extra mile for her customers.


Here is the awesome note that Julie sent to me!

I told Julie that I literally cried when I read the note she wrote for me- reminding me to take some time out for myself. I'm a tired mama, and I knew she was right- I always feel guilty about taking time for myself, but the truth is, I really need that time... for my own health and sanity. Thank you so much for this wonderful reminder, Julie!

So, let's get to the products. There were so many wonderful products that Julie sent to me. A few of them were products that I expressed interest in, and others were complete surprises!


Check out this fun surprise for my hubby!

The Hunk Chunk is the perfect gift or stocking stuffer for your main squeeze or any man in your life. This is a generous bar of soap that gets even the dirtiest dude on the block sparking clean. My hubby loves the design (he thought the Posh logo stamped on the bar was pretty cool), and the scent of the bar. He also said he felt extra clean after using it. He gave it two hard working man's thumbs up!



Details

Getting a manly clean is no easy feat. Pumice and carbon man-up for a deep clean, while shea butter and glycerin leave skin soft. Our Hunk Chunk is a beefcake bar designed to get even the grimiest guy clean enough to pass muster with the missus.

This is an awesome pampering product for any gal!

The Stay Gold Face Mask is a must for moms (and non-moms- every gal deserves this!). It's so luxurious and easy peasy to use. Just apply a bit of the mask to clean, dry skin. Leave this on for 10-20 minutes and then rinse. I love this mask so much! It's been a long time since I last used a face mask, but this is one that I'll definitely be purchasing in the future. I love the way it works to brighten and revive tired skin like mine. It calms, soothes, and hydrates the skin, and leaves you feeling so lovely and refreshed! Give this gift for the holidays, and you'll be golden!

Oh, Snap... so much more than a lotion!

The Oh, Snap! Big, Fat, Yummy Hand Creme is by far one of my favorite moisturizers! I am a huge fan of lotions, hand cremes and body butters, and Posh's Big, Fat, Yummy Hand Cremes are amazing! They are so rich and creamy, you only have to use a little bit at a time. I keep this little lady by my nightstand. I love to slather my hands (and my feet) with this before bedtime. It's not greasy at all, so I don't have to worry about a residue on my skin that'll wind up on the sheets. It smells amazing, and it's so nice. My hubby loves it, too! This is one of those pampering products that I really don't want to share- I want this one all to myself. Take my word for it- you'll love this... so get your own!



OH, SNAP!
BIG FAT YUMMY HAND CRÈME

Feel adorably audacious with a delectable grapefruit brûlée fragrance and non-greasy nourishment to whip dry hands into shape. Oh, Snap! is the perfect size for moisture on the go, featuring coconut oil, vitamin E, and aloe to renew tired, dry, hardworking hands without leaving them oily.

Let's face the new day with a clean face!

Every gal needs a secret weapon in her daily facial wash. I tend to have problems finding facial washes that work for me. I have combo skin, which is on the oily side (hoping that I will be blessed with fewer wrinkles down the road because of that!). Often times, face washes make me break out, but I was so pleasantly surprised by the Look Natural BFF Exfoliating Daily Face Wash! The product has lots of ingredients that I love in it, including peppermint, aloe vera, and grapefruit oil! It smells so good, and I love how tight and toned my skin feels after I wash my face with it. I haven't had any blemishes since using this amazing face wash, and my skin looks so good after I use it!

 I follow up with the Night & Day You Are The One Facial Moisturizer! Moisturizers are another product I generally have to be careful with. but I really love this one! I use it in the mornings and in the evenings. I love smoothing it over my skin before bedtime, especially! It cools and soothes my skin, and gets me feeling nice and fresh and ready for a restful night. The lavender essential oil in this product helps me drift off peacefully to dreamland.

The eyes have it when they look their best!

I am no stranger to dark, tired eyes. Since Baby S started waking up every few hours during the night a few weeks ago, I have gotten around 3.5 - 4 hours of sleep (on the good nights). I am definitely dragging during the daytime, and my poor eyes look like they've gone through the wringer. Perfectly Posh has a wonderful solution for those tired eyes- Impish Eyes! This de-puffing eye serum is fabulous. It works its magic on those puffy, tired dark circles and makes them virtually disappear! This is another secret weapon that I insist you try if you're lacking in the sleep department (what mom isn't?).

POSH IMPISH EYES

IMPISH EYES

Too many late nights getting you down? Lift and brighten those peepers with our clever concoction of caffeine, cucumber, CoQ10, white tea, and other powerful ingredients that de-puff eyes and improve the appearance of dark under-eye circles. Like a full night’s sleep in a bottle, Impish Eyes soothes, hydrates, tightens, and brightens delicate skin around the eyes. Apply a small amount to puffy, tired eyes to make them appear more lively and alert.

My miracle healer!

So, a couple of months ago, Baby S got HFMD from her cousin... and she gave it to me. I was so upset that she got it, and was really upset when I wound up with it, too. After a week of blisters and sores, my skin began to peel off on my hands and feet... and they looked terrible. Months later, I am still having some peeling on my feet, and I have been so glad to have the Healer Skin Stick to smooth over those dry areas. It's great for other things, too... my son B has dry skin patches on his arms, and this Healer Skin Stick helps to bring some moisture back to his skin. We love using this one dry hands. Even Baby S has a couple of dry spots on her head every now and then... so I just dab a bit of this over those spots, and her skin livens back up. Posh products are natural, and safe for the whole family! It smells great, too- like an orange Creamscicle! This product would make a wonderful stocking stuffer!



THE HEALER
SKIN STICK

Tired of dealing with dry, flaky, needy skin? The Healer is good for what scales ya! Calm and soothe damaged or irritated skin with gentle shea butter, featuring just a touch of vanilla and essential orange oil. Smooth this nourishing, healing stick wherever your skin needs some extra TLC.
Fragrance: Vanilla orange

This product works while you sleep!

I had mentioned to Julie that I was having some serious problems with my lips drying out. This happened during my pregnancy, and after Baby S was born, as well. I had really weird dry patches on my lips, which I had never experienced before. It was crazy annoying, and it looked bad, so it made me feel bad about my appearance. The Goodnight Kisses Overnight Lip Mask worked wonders for my dry lips! I just applied the mask before bed, and let the mask do its thing while I caught a few Zzzzz's. Wthin a few days, my lips felt nice and soft, just like they used to. I said 'see ya' to the dry lips, and haven't seen them since! This is a must-have for the winter months, when dry skin can be super problematic!


GOODNIGHT KISSES
OVERNIGHT LIP MASK

When saying goodbye is too hard, just say goodnight. Flavored in peppermint essential oil, this overnight lip mask deeply hydrates and nourishes ultra-dry lips with shea butter, beeswax, coconut oil, peppermint oil, vitamin E, and jojoba oil, transforming them into a seriously supple smoocher. Apply generously to lips as needed for irresistible results.
Flavor: Peppermint essential oil

Even more must-haves for perfectly puckered lips!

Nothin' will get you geared up for the crazy day ahead like the Get Fresh Caffeinated Lip Balm! Talk about a zinger... this yummy lip balm will have you climbing the highest mountain! When you need a little pick me up, just dab on a bit of this lip balm! I can't drink caffeinated coffee, since I am nursing Baby S, but have used this lip balm sparingly, and love it! It gives a little extra kick to those kisses!

It's a yummy mixture of shea, sugar and cocoa butter, plus other awesome ingredients that work to smooth and soften your lips. Just buffer your lips with the scrub, and then lick it or wipe it off. I like to follow up with the Get Fresh Lip Balm! This worked wonders on my dry lips in combination with the Goodnight Kisses Lip Mask!

A special surprise from Julie... Halloween socks!

Julie sent me a special Halloween surprise, too! I love these cute socks. I put them on in the evenings after I took care of my skin. They are the perfect socks to seal in the moisture from the Oh, Snap Hand Creme (I did use on my feet, too), and the Healing Skin Stick! Julie was so sweet to include these!


Check out some of the samples Julie sent to me...


...and more!

Julie sent me all kids of awesome Posh Product samples, too! I got to sample some different masks and hand cremes, and hubby got to try Hairy Beast, which he loved! I am already making my Perfectly Posh Christmas wish list! Plus... I know what products will make great gifts for those on my gift list!


And there was a surprise for B, too!

Get this- Julie also included a special Halloween treat for my son, B! I mean... talk about someone who goes above and beyond! And I know that Julie treats all of her customers like they are super stars! B was so excited to receive this treat, and he thanks Ms. Julie times a million for sharing some of his favorites candies with him for Halloween!

Perfectly Posh products are fabulous- I've never met a Posh product that I didn't love. Among the ones that Julie sent to me, the lip products were all definite favorites, as well as the BFY Hand Creme and Healer Skin Stick. The facial and eye products are also stellar and they have my vote!
