Sweet Pumpkin Spice Collection (Soap, Lip Scrub, Lip Balm) Happee Body Review by Kelly Burgess

Happee Body

The Sweet Pumpkin Spice Collection came to me in a lovely little gift box filled with the products laid out on a bed of bright orange crimped paper shreds. It looked very festive and instantly made me think of autumn!

These products contain all natural ingredients: premium pumpkin essential oil, premium beeswax, extra virgin olive oil, extra virgin coconut oil, premium shea butter, Manuka honey, and organic cane sugar.

It includes two bars of adorable face and body soaps shaped like little orange pumpkins, a small glass jar of lip scrub, and a little metal tin of lip balm. All of them have the wonderful aroma of pumpkin spice!

First, I gave the soap a try. It made a thin lather on my hands but was smooth and creamy. I rubbed it on my face in circular motions as a cleanser and rinsed with a washcloth and water. Let me just say that it smelled heavenly! The aroma was so pleasurable. After toweling dry, my skin felt smooth and clean. I was impressed that I didn't feel any pulling in my skin from soap residue. Once completely dry, I applied my usual moisturizer, and I was all set. The soap was a success!

Next, I tried out the lip scrub. It had a consistency of wet granulated sugar, which is indeed what it was! I accidentally got a small taste of it as I rubbed it in, and it was sweet and tasted like pumpkin spice! I rubbed it on my lips and then wiped it off with a wet washcloth. My lips felt smooth and nicely exfoliated!

Last, I was ready for some lip balm! I tend to have chronically chapped lips all year round, so I was really interested in the lip scrub and lip balm combination. When I applied the lip balm, I felt instant relief of my dry lips! It was so soothing. It reminded me of the feeling you get from pure lanolin, but without the lanolin. It was so comforting, not to mention the pleasant aroma, once again, of the pumpkin spice.

I really enjoyed this little treasure trove of pumpkin spice products!  It would make a lovely fall holiday or hostess gift at Thanksgiving, as well! I love that the ingredients are all natural without any harsh chemicals I can't pronounce, and they truly felt great on my skin. I love all things pumpkin, so I enjoyed the scent very much. You should definitely give these a try!
