It's a small world. Months and months ago I was following her on Twitter as a fellow blogger, somehow not realizing she had this shop. Months later I noticed the lovely wife (who happens to own June Bug Baby Boutique, a very cool eco baby/kids boutique in Solvang, CA...and who happens to be my friend now too!) of my friend since 5th grade "Liked" Etta + Billie on Facebook. So I clicked the FB page to find out that Etta + Billie is small organic body care company in San Francisco using pure and pronounceable ingredients. I quickly placed my order. Owner, Alana Rivera contacted me right away (she's a Fig+Sage fan!) and let me know how excited she was for me to try her products and asked how I heard about Etta + Billie. I told her that my friend's wife had liked Etta + Billie on Facebook and I was curious. Come to find out, Alana went to high school with my friend's wife. Yep, a small world indeed!
But on to the products. First impressions mean a lot to me and since the name, logo and ingredients were right up my alley, I decided to put the Lotion Bar and Salt Scrub Bar to the test. While I like both products, the Sweet Orange Ylang Ylang Lotion Bar is my favorite. I'm a sucker for ylang ylang and this bar is delicately scented with its pleasant aroma. This bar works amazingly well on dry skin, which I'm already starting to prepare for as Fall and Winter approach. I love that I can throw it in my bag without worrying about spillage and a lotion bar is what I prefer to take with me on a plane (because I always get so dried out when I fly!) so I don't have to worry about whether its 2 liquid ounces or less so it will pass through security. The Salt Scrub Bar is entirely unique and melts on skin while providing exfoliation - chances are, you won't need to use lotion after your shower because this little hockey puck provides an intense amount of hydration.
Whether you're a constant or seasonal dry skin sufferer - I definitely recommend checking out these Lotion Bars and Salt Scrub Bars! And the prices are great too!
I also bought some bar soaps and the Citrus Poppyseed soap bar is my favorite! Its entirely refreshing and I wanted to eat it!!
