Okay, I know that this is going to come as a shock to most of you but its not often that I get to shower everyday. Oh, you either? I thought so. For those of you that do get the pleasure you may not get what I am talking about. Being a busy SAHM, working on my blog, working on my business and taking care of the kids, the house, the bills - not to mention dinner three different ways, it can sometimes be hard to find time to fit in a shower. You say gross, I say who sees me anyways? The other moms at the bus stop know I never leave the house, except to go to the bus stop. Its funny cause they always know when I have had to go to the store or an appointment for my kids because I am wearing makeup and I am dressed decently.
Anyhow, back to the shower. When I take one I take forever! I think thats why I put it off. For some reason I just don't want to shower unless I can take my time and enjoy it. No worrying about the kids killing themselves or eachother, no crying baby, just me and hot water - together at last. That is my real me time. That's why it is the perfect time to break out some yummy soaps, relax and indulge myself. So it shouldn't be a shocker that I would love to tell you about Kreated by Karina.
Kreated by Karina has delicious looking handmade vegetarian soaps and shea butter lip balms. All though I haven't had the pleasure of trying them out for myself yet I am sure that they are every bit as delicious smelling and tasting in person as in the pictures. Karina has been making and selling her soaps and lip balms since 2001. All of her soaps are 100% vegetarian-friendly, have an incredible lather incomparable to mass-produced soaps, and are free of parabens, SLS/SLES and skin-drying chemicals. I have really sensitive, dry skin so these soaps sound like something that I could really benefit from. Kreated by Karina has been open on Etsy since 2006 and has over 1200 sales under its belt. All with 100% positive feedback!
Below are some pictures of some of the items at Kreated by Karina so you can see for yourself just what I am talking about when I say yummy.
In addition to the bars Kreated by Karina also offers a Body Souffle Soap that is a luxurious multi-lathering whipped soap. It is supposed to leave your skin even softer and smoother with a wonderful scent that lingers throughout the day. See what I mean? Yummy! Here is a picture of the Body Souffle Soap.
Kreated By Karina also offers a collection of Solid Perfumes. I know what you're thinking, just what in the world is a solid perfume? Karina has created a solid mixture of jojoba oil, shea butter, beeswax and fragrance so that you can discreetly rub on a small amount of fragrance anytime you need. This is a great idea! Just dab a little bit on your wrists or behind the ear and you won't have to worry about the dreaded perfume overkill. Subtle is great, too much can be just plain offending. The solid perfumes come in a tin, perfect for your pocket or your purse.
One of the best things about all of the items that Kreated by Karina offers is that they have natural ingredients and are extremely affordable. You can try any single item out in her shop for less than $5. Of course, if you are looking for a great gift idea, besides buying a single item, Kreated by Karina has really cool For Him and For Her gift sets for only $9.50. Or if you really want to a great gift for someone you can order a six month Soap of the Month Club Gift or Lip Balm of the Month Gift package. Send yourself or someone else a great new flavor of soap or lip balm every month for six months. You get to choose the six scents or flavors that you would like sent. Also with this gift set you will receive some great samples and extras from other Etsy sellers. All this for only $16 for the lip balm subscription and $28 for the soap subscription.
