TIME'S UP! Fraiche Handcrafted Bath Product Review and Give Away

Let's face it--when life gets tough at some point enough is enough. That's when it is time to run a warm bath and dip into a deep, luxurious bath invigorated with natural healing ingredients. If you're like me, when you choose your bathing products, you look for quality ingredients made naturally--after all our skin is already under dialy stress from harsh air pollutants and damaging cleaning products. A warm bath filled with natural skin softening agents and stimulating scents for the mind is sometimes just what Mother Nature ordered.

Especially when the ingredients are derived straight from Mother Nature herself. Enter Fraiche (pronounced "fresh").

A month ago I had the opportunity to tour the Fraiche facilities and learn about how Fraiche soaps and swizzles are made. Fraiche strives to use only the highest quality ingredients to handcraft their bath products including goat's milk, certified organic herbs, natural minerals, and natural skin softening agents such as honey. Fraiche is commited to excellence and purity:

"Our goal is to formulate luscious lather and intoxicating scents through the use of only botanical and certified organic ingredients. So each time you enjoy our organic products in the bath or in the shower, you can rest assured they are made of the purest ingredients found on earth, and are crafted with a great deal of love and mindful attention. Our products look beautiful, smell wonderful and feel sumptuous to the touch." --Johnan Ratliff, founder of Fraiche

I concur. After watching the soap making process and then sampling several soaps and swizzles (fizzing bath bombs) in the comfort of my own home it is my opinion that Fraiche is one of the best soap designers and manufacturers in business. I was pleasantly pleased with the elegance of the products given to me to sample and review. My favorite--the Rose Swizzle--was perfectly infused with the scent of freshly picked roses with real rose petals that floated in the bath as the swizzle moisturized my skin.

Fraiche bath products are available online and nationwide at various retailers across the United States. For a complete list of retailers, visit this list of Fraiche retailers.

I am a bath bomb freak! I hadn't even heard of this company so thanks for telling me about something new.

My two products would most definitely be swizzles: Green Meadow & pomiscuous.


Gretchen said...

I think the products I would pick would be the Vanilla Bean soap and the Spa Splash swizzle... they look relaxing and who doesn't need relaxing, right? :o)

LoveFeast Table said...

Hello, I've tried similar products before but I always love a step up in quality....what can I say? So, I'd choose the swizzle rose or sooth me "flavors". I also think the holiday spice would be a nice hostess gift with a little holiday towel or something wrapped in a bow.

Also linked your giveaway to our facebook site:

And, twitter!!

Have a great day! Your friends at LoveFeast Table! Chris Ann & Kristin

I would absolutely enjoy the peppermint swizzle - how refreshing!

DangGina said...

Hard to tell which product I like best since I can't smell 'em. :) They're all very pretty though! And judging by the names of said scents, methinks I'd like the Honeysuckle, Mandarin Orange, or Lemon Verbena best.

Enter me to win!

I would have to go with a lavender soap, and a peppermint soap as well. They are just so pretty, and my favorite scents for those kind of things. Lovely.
