Tuesday Giveaway - Green Barn Soaps Style

Hola Blogstalkers!

It's Tuesday so you know what that means, time to give some effing awesome stuff away.  Today's giveaway is brought to you by Heather of Green Barn Soaps.  Some of you might know Heather from her blog Like A Cup Of Tea where she writes about her life and homesteading in Maine.

I know her from Skyping with her and from all of her emails where she does nothing but brag about how many lobsters exist in the state of Maine.  Sometimes she even sends me pictures of the lobsters and I am like OH MY GOD HEATHER stop talking about lobsters and figure out a way to send me some in the mail immediately.

Calm down Lauren.

Anyway, I shall leave the rest of this post to Heather.  You are welcome for this introduction Heather.




Green Barn Soaps (lovingly referred to as The Barn) is a Maine based handcrafted soap company, focused on providing you with high-quality preservative and cruelty free product.  We’re a small company, and we often make our soaps in batches no larger than 30 bars at a time so we can really focus on the product you’ll be putting on your skin.



 Started in 2009, Green Barn Soaps began on the simple theory of less is more.  After looking at the back of a bar of a well known “green” soap at a large chain, and being astounded at the laundry list of hard to pronounce ingredients, we knew there had to be a simpler and more environmentally friendly way to make soap and other body products. What started as a personal endeavor for friends and family grew as we started getting requests through friends of friends.



You never know what you’ll find at the barn as we’re always trying new items, though you’ll find a few staples time and time again. When it comes down to it we believe no matter what walk of life you come from, we all need to care for ourselves, take a moment, and give your skin a little love. Welcome to the barn. Come on in, the door is always open.

--Heather


Ok so here's the dealio. (Um this is Lauren again if you could not tell.)  All you have to do to enter to win $25.00 of product plus shipping is comment below.  Any comment will do.  The winner will be chosen randomly (in next Monday's post) which means that complimenting me does not help your chances though it does make me like you more.  The winner will be provided with a custom coupon code for use on any product (including sale items) at Green Barn Soaps.

And because Heather is awesome she's also giving the first 15 people to use the code "GetYouShowerOnJointly" 20% off your order at Green Barn Soaps.   Available for use on any product (including sale items). 

I like this picture because it reminds me of cheese.

    You said any comment would do, so I said something I said once. Also, I'm of the feminine persuasion and I like soap. Especially smell-good soap. Yay for good-smelling soap!

    Lauren is pretty. So are these soaps. I know you said compliments wouldn't help, but it doesn't hurt to try, right?

    ReplyDelete

  9. Oh, I wish I were a little bar of soap (bar of soap)...
    That song is firmly in my head, now I gift it to you!

  10. I used to make soap (my scarred kitchen table will attest to that). I still have many fragrance oils that should be used up. Even with that said, I would love to win these soaps. And I love Maine!

  14. I have always wanted to learn to make my own soap....never have though. Sounds like these could be the next best thing :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. These soaps sound almost good enough to eat. Not that I would do that, of course. You comparing them to blocks of cheese is not helping, though.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Lauren is the most hilarious blogger I've ever read. I've even added her to my 'close friends' list on Facebook so I can be notified whenever she publishes anything. I have no one else on facebook who "notifies" me, not even the Bloggess.

    Yay soap!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  33. I am intrigued by fancy soaps, but am concerned that soap that smells like raspberry lemonade would attract bees and other such undesirable insects....

    ReplyDelete
  34. Can always use more fancy soap!

  35. Sarah H4/09/2013

    The winning of soap would offset the terror I feel about having to get my hair cut at a completely new place by a complete stranger tomorrow.

  50. Ok since I was reading Catching Fire during my insomnia fit (totally started and finished it so yeah for quick reads) I am quite sure I missed the discount. However, I love a giveaway and like hand crafted or body friendly products. I'll be checking out the site to overindulge with the moment I'm gainfully employed and got benefits again just in case my skin goes lady you smell great but I'm going to break you out. That should be soon lol.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm curious to know Heather's definition of "cruelty-free."

    I'm sure these fancy soaps would go a long way to easing my first sunburn in years. My nose and right cheek are starting to resemble lizard scales.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Yay soap! I actually don't think I've ever had "natural" soap before. I use body wash more than anything. But I certainly wouldn't turn free stuff down!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  56. handmade soap is a guilty pleasure of mine :) these look amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Anonymous4/11/2013

    Hi, Lauren! Are we supposed to eat the soap, or use it to clean ourselves! The "flavors" sound deee-lightful!!

    Thanks very much -- Kathy in CA

  109. I'm a little put-off by the concept of soap cheese, though I love both separately...

    ReplyDelete
