Sweet Southern Lovin had the opportunity to work with Squid Balm . I received a Reviewers Sample Pack which included: Squid Balm Solid Lotion Bar in Apples & Honey, Gentle Oil Cleanser for oily/combination skin, Squid Squeak Shampoo in Tangerine, Pomegranate Bliss Avocado Oil Soap, Squid Silk Solid Conditioner Bars in Coconut Peach, Squid Lid Head Shave, and Lemon Drop Exfoliator Soap. I couldn’t wait to try all of these out.
The Solid Lotion Bars come in a really cute tin and all you have to do is rub the bar between your hands and rub it wherever you need a little lotion at. The bars are concentrated and are uniquely designed to soften with the warmth from your body.They are also made without any harsh chemicals, preservatives or added water.My oldest has a really bad eczema problem and it had been flaring up. I used the Squid Balm Solid Lotion on her every morning and night and it calmed her flair up basically over night. It also has a really nice smell. The Gentle Oil Cleanser is very easy to use. All you have to do is put a small amount of the cleanser into your dry hands and massage it over your face for about 2 minutes. Then rinse with warm water. The oil from Squid Balm is designed to use natural products to dissolve make-up, as well as excess oils and dirt. I have using face cleansers on my face because my face feels worse after its “clean” than it did before. I love the Gentle Oil Cleaner and it makes me skin feel very soft and clean. It also does a wonderful job of getting rid of pesky mascara and eye liner.
The soaps I received, I LOVE. They are handcrafted and cold processed soaps. Cold Process is a really cool old-fashioned method which makes the soap a lot richer, denser, and gentler than most of the soaps that are on the market right now. The shampoo I received smelled really good. I tried it out on my hair (my hair is extremely thick). If it would work in my hair it would work in any. Squid Balm also suggest doing an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse, which is 3 TBS apple cider vinegar in 3 cups of water and work through your hair. After using the shampoo, the apple cider vinegar rinse, and using the conditioner from Squid Balm my hair turned out so soft, pretty and shiny. I LOVE the Pomegranate Bliss Avocado Oil Soap I received too. As soon as I took it out of the package my husband and I both couldn’t stop smelling it. It is one of the few soaps I will trust using on my kids. I do not think I could ever go back to using the soap I find at Walmart. The Lemon Drop Exfoliator is perfect to use with a course spongy to use like after shaving or something to get rid of all the dead skin cells. It makes me skin feel very soft.
The Squid Silk conditioner is really amazing too. For only $7 you get a bar that can last anywhere from 4-8 weeks. It also detangles and conditions hair without all the unneeded proteins like other conditioners use. Not only is it a conditioner but it also acts as a shaving lotion. It will not clog your blade. The conditioner can be rinsed if you desire!!
I absolutely loved every product we received from Squid Balm. I do not think I will be every going to Walmart for these kind of products again. If you would like to see what all they have to offer you can visit them here. You can also head over here and sample their products for only $2 a product!!
