Touch'd Review & Giveaway!

I am so excited! This is my very first giveaway!!!

I was chosen to be one in a group of bloggers helping with the Touch'd online store Grand Launch!

A little bit about the company and founder:

Touch'd bath and body was founded Rachel Ferrucci, when she couldn't find products to meet all the needs of her family. One product specifically, the organic sugar scrub, was created when her daughter had eczema and the doctors were prescribing medicated creams that seemed to be drying out her skin. She wanted to give her daughter relief without slopping medicated creams all over her delicate body. She researched and read every book on natural oils and how they can benefit our skin. She was successful in concocting the winning formulas in her home bathtub by making a product that was 100% organic and alleviated her eczema.

Other signature items in the Touch’d women’s product line include Bath Butter, Moisture Myst, and the Foaming Salt Soak, which is derived from the Dead Sea. The men’s line (inspired by her husband) includes the scents Outlaw and Captain.

I got to try the Organic Sugar Scrub!

The first thing I noticed was the smell, it was heavenly! It smelled like a spa and I had to open the jar right away and try the scrub on my hands. I have really dry skin and lately my hands have been really dry and itchy, I am sure the air conditioning at my work does not help. I scrubbed it in with a little water and then rinsed with water. It left a great smell and a smooth feeling. The product left an oily feeling but I liked it and followed with hand lotion I had. I used the product on my hands for a couple days and the itching was gone. I also tried it on my elbows and feet and both feel smoother.

Since I have sensitive skin and eczema I like that these products are made from all natural ingredients which will not irritate my skin. Now I just need to get my husband to let me use it on his feet!
