Happy Mail Monday - Compassion & Cacao
This week I received some Mr. Bean Coffee Bean Scrub with Coconut Oil and Sea Salt...MANDARIN Flavored/Scented. I've been looking for a new scrub as of late and I'm a HUGE fan of Mandarin...so I'm already excited and I haven't even tried it yet!
I've used a few other coffee based scrubs before...1 from a home-based business and the other being hand-made by a friend of mine in town here. Hers was made with Olive Oil instead of Coconut Oil.
If you click on this 2nd photo and enlarge it - you will see what I saw - as I opened the box! I thought it was clever and funny! But then again - I have a strange sense of humor.
Their website follows suit with their products being organic, vegan, cruelty-free, and very well branded throughout their site, products, media, and packaging!
They are very involved with social media and often use the phrase "Get Beaned" while referring to their product. Clever and Creative! I like it!
I also got my package from Sky over at Medicinal Foods and I can't wait to jump in! He sent a large LOVER'S BAR which is being called the 'hottest chocolate' in the raw food movement right now. He also sent smaller bars of the Truffle Bars including the Jungle Peanut, Coco Mint, and MacButter. He sent two of his tonic powders including the Love Tonic (Womb Yin Nutritive) and Lotus Centered Spirit Tonic. AND...their famous Cacao Elixir! Woot! I can't wait to try EVERYTHING! And of course, I will be coming up with more recipes using these products VERY soon!
Another company I would like to point out in this post - is another cruelty-free company! Teadora! I can't wait to try their Rainforest At Dawn hydrating elixir and nourishing body polish.
I really LOVE that they GIVE BACK to so many organizations!
They have a real extensive website, too!
And the Cruelty-Free Bunny logo always helps sell me - as well!
Teadora helps to fund a philanthropic exchange between the U.S. and Brazil to promote rainforest conservation, education and leadership development.
I will be doing product reviews on all three of these companies and their product lines in the near future!
