Soy Wax-Not Just For Candles!

(Got a little oil on the packaging-it didn't arrive that way:)

Oh, about a few months ago, I did a swap with my blogging buddy Jackie of 2 Virgo Designs. She selected 3 of my lip lushes, and I chose something quite different: Soy Wax Lotion Tart with Emu Oil. Okay, that's not a typo. I did say soy wax lotion tart. I must admit, I prefer to use vegan products although I eat meats of all kind-but I've never eaten emu before, lol.

As you can see, the lotion tart comes packaged in a breakaway tart pack just like a traditional wax tart. The packaging calls it a warming hand lotion & room freshener, but I actually used mine as a softener for my heels, knees, and elbows because mine look like I've been walking on all fours-on concrete! I just break off a cube and rub. The tart melts into your skin, and for maximum penetration, I use mine while my skin is still slightly damp. The scent I chose is called Black Knight of Avalon. I can't describe it except to say Ooh La La! It's very sensual and mysterious. I can't stop smelling myself. I even use a little in my hair to give it a beautiful, subtle scent.

Here are the ingredients: soy wax, shea butter, cocoa butter, emu oil, and fragrance. Pure. Delightful. Sexy.

You can find 2 Virgo Designs on Etsy. Check it out and go score!

That sounds really cool.
I bet it does wonders for dry skin.

LOL! I remember Jackie and you found each other's blog through mine, how awesome is that!? That's the main reason inter-networking is so cool, you never know who you're going to meet. I've taken some of Jackie's incense to craft fairs as samples and she said she got a few sales soon after so woohoo!

Her scents are so rich and sensual aren't they?

HI! Thanks for the rockin' review Patrice, so glad you like the soy wax lotion tarts and you are quite right, they do not have to be melted to use. HI jinx! You're right, networking is the bomb!
