Soy Wax-Not Just For Candles!
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.
