Galloping Goats Farm contacted me to see if I'd try their products handmade from goat milk and it didn't take much arm twisting to get me to give them a try. I was curious if I could feel much of a difference between regular soap and their soft goatsy stuff because it's supposed to be better balanced to the pH of your skin and therefore less prone to drying it out (I have the world's driest skin).
I was pleased with how mild it was--it didn't seem nearly as filmy and hard as my normal stuff and while it smelled wonderful (I liked the Confederate Jasmine scent) it wasn't overpowering. The lip balms likewise were great and I love the honey clover flavor. I mean scent.
I noticed on their site they're also advertising an insect repellent skin product that I'd be interested in--though it's past mosquito time here I'd be thrilled to find a product like this one that keeps pests away without that nasty spray that leaves a sheen on your skin and makes you feel like a BP oil disaster. Anyway, give them a peek, they've also got these fun little "Bathtub Truffles" that are made with shea and cocoa butters, baking soda, dehydrated milk, citric acid and fragrance oil that you drop into your bath water to soothe and condition your skin. If you'd like to keep up on any new products they have I'd recommend following them on Facebook and on Twitter.
And aren't you lucky? Because Galloping Goats Farm has graciously offered a beautiful gift basket full of their products to give away to a winner here at Scribbit. The basket includes:
2 bars of Girly Girl Soap

1 VooDoo Berry Lip Balm (raspberry/blackberry explosion)
. . . all bundled in a lovely fabric bag ready for gift giving.
