12 Days of Christmas {Day 4: MadeOn Gift Set}

Today is the 4th day of the 12 days of Christmas Reviews & Giveaways 2012!

On the 4th day of Christmas, day2day joys gave to me…

An awesome giveaway from MadeOn Skin Care, a natural skin care company offering a variety of products that are all made with 3 helpful ingredients: coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax.  This is Mom business that started in owner Renee’s kitchen out of desperation to help her dry and cracking hands. 

Features of MadeOn Skin Care Products: 

  • Hard lotion is lotion that is solid at room temperature.  It is designed to specifically protect hands and feet from cracked skin and extreme dry skin
  • The hard lotion bar has three simple ingredients: shea butter, coconut oil and beeswax. That’s it! Shea butter and coconut oil are known edible emollients.  They soften and soothe dry skin and are gentle enough to rub over skin cuts and cracks. The beeswax emulsifies the other two ingredients to create a beautiful combination to smooth your skin.  You’ll be surprised to learn that this is all you need to get your hands back to work.
  • Hard lotion is for those with cracked skin, split heels, alligator legs or rough elbows who have been frustrated with the lack of effectiveness of off-the-shelf lotions. It’s also for those who are concerned about the excessive use of steroids to control their skin problems and are looking for natural relief. It’s for both men and women who appreciate applying lotion that doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy or sticky.            (See all this information and more here

Now for my review:

I was able to try out all of the products pictured above as well as the bug block.

What I Liked:

  1. The was my second experience using hard lotion, the first was a different brand, so I was expecting the same thing but really, I was impressed. MadeOn lotion gives your skin exactly what it needs and doesn’t take that much warmth form your hands
  2. The products really do what they claim to
  3. All the products are natural and non toxic
  4. The lotions come in really sturdy  nice tins
  5. The Au Chocolat lotion bar is to die for, it smells so delightful! 
  6. The Bug Block worked great, a friend of our used it during a outdoor training in the summer  and he loved it, said it worked great and didn’t have to use the harsh stuff! 

What I didn’t Like:

  1. The lotion does leave an oily residue on your skin but the good thing if you know it’s working.

  1. I love to use necessities as stocking stuffers like toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.

  2. I would usually do small things that my fiancé needs or wants, but we’re not doing any gifts for the second year in a row. It’s mainly because we can’t afford it, but it really helps us to really focus on the meaning of the holiday. Especially since we both come from families who love buying everything!
    The few gifts we are giving to family and friends are handmade, and I love it 🙂

  3. We don’t normally do stocking stuffers.

  10. I have three children in college so movie tickets and lottery scratch off tickets are good stocking stuffers. Thanks for the giveaway.

  11. We haven’t started doing stockings yet since the kids are still young and thrilled with just a few things left under the tree 🙂 But my parents do an awesome job with the “basics” of chapstick , mini flashlights, etc. And my grandparents do movie theater gift cards so my husband and I look forward to a free date!
