AND Graham Gardens posted a special code (“Sale30″) in honor of We are THAT Family readers on our homepage for 30% off all our products!



I wish I had a scratch n sniff screen, so y’all could smell what I’m smelling right now.

It’s my husband’s neck.

Unexpected, no?

We’ve been using new soap. Now, it’s not just any soap, it’s homemade chunky wholesome bar soap with names like Avocado and Oatmeal, Lavender and Coconut Milk, and Peppermint Cream that are smooth on the skin and smell as good as they sound.

I love soap. I’m not a perfume girl and don’t like heavy colognes. There’s just something about smelling the hint of soap on my kids and hubby that feels like home.  And also, I like clean people.

I’m a big fan of Graham Gardens. They sent an awesome variety of soap samples for my family to try out. We loved the variety of scents and how long each bar lasted. They also just look so much better than store bought soap!

One of my favorite, favorite items at Graham Gardens is the (also one of their best sellers) Lotion Bar. I love this little tin because it’s in solid form. It’s not messy and it’s perfect for my purse.

There are so many uses: dry skin, chapped lips, hands, feet, cracked fingers, etc! My oldest daughter confiscated a jar and even my hubby uses it.

We’re hooked. We also smell really good.

I’m happy to say that Graham Gardens is giving away this lovely basket of goodies:

    I’d love to try Graham Gardens! I think I’d really like the butter bar for my dry skin and I am thinking about snagging a bug bar for the park.

  2. Heather E. says

    I’d love to try these! I’ve heard so much about them lately! I would like to try Peppermint Cream Soap! I can just imagine how amazing it smells and how well it would help me wake up in the morning!

    ooh, I want to win something! I think the silver alpine or peppermint cream sound lovely! (and you’re right, very cute packaging!)

  4. CW says

    Lavender and coconut milk soap and Silver alpine soap both sound wonderful. My usband could use some grease monkey soap as well.

  5. says

    I would love to try the Healthy Skin Salve to see if it would help with the psoriasis on my elbows. I’d also like the BabyBird collection for my wee little one!

  6. Hannah says

    Everything looks wonderful! I would love to try some of the lip blam! The Peppermint might be good for Christmas. :)

  7. says

    Definitely the Babybird Butter Bar, mostly because the name is so adorable. It’s so hard to choose, though! Everything looks wonderful!

  8. Jodie says

    I would love to try the butterbar and butterstick. Even if I don’t win I may try placing an order…((if they deliver to canada that is…))

    With the approach of winter and dry lips, I’d have to say the Peppermint Candy Lip Balm. Sounds wonderful!

  11. says

    I have such dry skin, especially in the winter months, I would love to try the butter bar! And the bug bar sounds intriguing as well and mosquitoes seem to love me and my daughter much more than we love them.

  12. Gwyn says

    wow, this looks like a fun site, I would love to try one of the body oils, or maybe the lip balm, or, or or …..

  13. Sharon O says

    I purchased the avocado oatmeal bar. Hopefully it will be good. My face is breaking out for some strange reason here I am age 56 with teenage skin. I hope I like it.

  14. says

    I’d love to try the butter bar or stick, they sound great and I like that I can stick it in my bag and no leaking!!
    Thanks for this great giveaway!!

  15. lori says

    i would love to try the lavender and coconut milk, we have skin allergies, and this seems like it might be the perfect thing.

  16. Rebecca says

    It all looks fantastic, but I want to try the avocado and oatmeal bar because it’s supposed to be good for sensitive skin.

  17. says

    Reading the descriptions kind of makes me want to eat it ;)
    I’d love to try the lavender and coconut milk soap and the body oil for baby from the babybird collection (for my little ones…. although I’d probably use it too).

  18. Kim W. says

    The peppermint cream soap sounds YUMMY and refreshing!!! This would be an awesome gift basket to win. We switched to natural soaps and shampoos over a year ago!

  19. Sherri Smetana says

    Oh my goodness – what a cool idea – I would love to try the orange lip balm and the sweet butter bar.:) It’s freaking hot in texas and dry-this would be great:)

  20. Megan G. says

    I’m obsessed with lip balm, so I’ll have one of each of those! ;)

    I also love a bar lotion in the tin…that’s the only way I ever remember to put it on.

    Neat site! I’ll be back!

  21. MichelleH says

  23. says

    Oh, the lavender coconut bar sounds heavenly!! Would like to try the body butters, too, since I have never used something like that. Love anything all natural. :)

  24. Julie says

    I’d love to try the lavendar body oil. It seems like something that would be good to use on baby as part of a bedtime massage (and I would probably get it under the guise of being “for the baby” but if I’m honest, it’ll end up being for ME!!!)

  25. says

    I would love to try all of Graham Gardens products! … especially the butter bars. I’m always on the search for natural products that reduce or eliminate artificial ingredients and chemicals. Thanks for hosting this generous giveaway!

Unfortunately it will have to be another c-section and I would love to try the Salve to help with the healing of the incision. Thanks for sharing and for the great chance to win!

  29. says

    Grease Monkey. As I type my manly husband is working on his 1977 diesel Mercedes that is currently apart in our garage. He had so much oil on his clothes that when he washed them last night it left an oil residue all over the washer. sigh. He had to use my hand and face exfoliate to be work presentable today as we are in desperate need of a grease monkey soap. :)

  30. sandi says

    I would absolutely LOVE to try one of those lotion bars. Awesome giveaway! I will be checking the website out more.

It might be difficult to stay pure, but I am positive she will NEVER regret it :) Blessings!

  47. says

    I would like to try their soaps- I’m not a fan of perfume either, but sure do like good smelling people!
