Natural Handmade Soaps from Stargazer Soaps

Welcome to the Natural in the New Year Giveaway Hop hosted by the Blogging Mamas Network.
The month of January is when most people start evaluating ways that they can make changes to be healthier and I've joined a group of 30 other bloggers that have come together to help you do just that... in a more natural way! After my review and giveaway, scroll down to the bottom so that you can hop around for other giveaways too.

One of my favorite sponsors to work with has been Nicole from Stargazer Soaps. In my blogging journey I've been blessed with getting to know others who share the mutual desire and drive to better themselves and their family, and Nicole has taken that to the next level and shares her talent of soap making with other families as well. Keeping it natural, healthy and safe is important to her and I totally admire that!

If you aren't familiar with Stargazer Soaps, this is a work-at-home-mom business run by Nicole where she crafts handmade, natural soaps. The name Stargazer comes from a very special experience she had with her brother and as tribute each of her soaps is named after something from the sky.

Why would you want to consider handmade soaps, besides their prettiness factor? The ingredients, y'all. Nicole posted a comparison of handmade versus commercial soap ingredients for you to take a look. Personally, I try to use products (to the best of my ability) where I have a clue on what the ingredients are. With Stargazer Soaps, you don't have to worry that some random chemical made it onto your skin. And if you have any questions, Nicole is right there to tell you what it is and why she chose to use it. Her own testimony of why she switched to handmade soaps, due to her daughter's eczema, is reason enough to consider making the switch.

StarGazer Soaps offers two lines of soaps - Purely Natural and Creamy Silk. Although both lines are by far better for your skin than commercial soap, the difference between the two is that the Purely Natural line uses colorants only found in nature and is fragranced with essential oils. The Creamy Silk line uses colorants (not dyes). Find out more about the difference between Stargazer Soap's two lines.

In the past I've had the pleasure of reviewing a few of her soaps, and my favorite has been the Grapefruit from the Purely Natural line and Orion from Creamy Silk. She shares about her currently curing batches often and has a Youtube stream where you can see from start to finish how most of her soaps are made!

I can go on and on about just how beautiful Stargazer Soaps are! They also smell amazing and very true to how she describes them. Stargazer Soaps has also rolled out a masculine line as well - check out her brand new beer soaps and my husband never batted an eye at the Purely Natural line.


Thinking ahead for Valentine's Day? This giveaway ends just in time for you to place an order with V-Day delivery if you win! Nicole says "My Valentine soaps are Merope, Capella & Electra.  They will be ready to ship on January 26th. To receive by Valentines day, orders need to be ordered with Priority mail by February 11." If supplies last, the soaps will be available beyond Valentines day of course :) Don't forget to use code PIER10 to get 10% off your order too.
