MadeOn Skin Care Products Review and Giveaway

MadeOn Bee Silk Hard Lotion

I’m one of those rare folks who use very few skin care products. The ones that I do use are single ingredient products or contain very few ingredients. And those ingredients are not chemicals, so there’s no need to decipher unpronounceable terms and determine if such ingredients are gluten free or not. I am often contacted by skin care company representatives and friends who have become independent distributors for such companies. As much as I want to support my friends in such endeavors, when I look at the ingredients and see mostly chemicals, especially ones like cancer-causing parabens, I have to decline. So it’s wonderful when I don’t have to decipher ingredients and can recommend wonderful, naturally gluten-free skin care products like MadeOn Skin Care products.

MadeOn Skin Care products are ones that I can wholeheartedly recommend. It’s a family run business that was started by Renee Harris as a solution to heal her own dry, cracked, and, as a result, pain-ridden hands. You can watch Renee talk about her company and her products via YouTube here. I’ve been using MadeOn products for over a year now and even gave several MadeOn Skin Care gift packs to family members for Christmas last year. I love that the gift packs come in small muslin tote bags. Just tie on a gift tag and/or pretty red ribbon and you’re all set! I also gave some of the hair butter to a dear friend with super curly hair; she loves the product.

Let’s talk about the specifics on the products themselves a moment.

Hard lotion means lotion that is solid at room temperature. It warms and softens from one’s body temperature and once softened is easily applied. Hard lotion is designed to specifically protect hands and feet from cracked skin and extreme dry skin. It’s this product that I use the most. I keep a bar at work. I keep a bar in my nightstand. I have a travel size that gets thrown in my toiletries bag. Hard lotion is my “go to” solution for “winter feet” and also makes for prettier summer “sandal feet.”

What’s in the hard lotion? In the standard Bee Silk hard lotion, you’ll find shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax. That’s it! You know I love the beeswax factor, and it’s the beeswax that helps hold in the moisture once applied. In the Au Chocolat version, you’ll find cocoa butter, coconut oil, and beeswax. It will come as no surprise to those who know me well that I love this one. You can guess why!

The hair butter contains shea butter, coconut oil, beeswax, and orange essential oil, and my friend loved it! There are some great testimonial videos on the hair butter on the MadeOn website, too.

There’s also lip balm, diaper rash cream, bug block, goat milk soap, and much more. There are even DIY kits so you can make your own skin care products!

    I recently found this product and many great others, by ordering the e-book giveaway. That was an awesome deal. I ordered a kit to make my own, and free tinted lip balm, and sample of Bee Silk. THIS IS AWESOME! I could actually rub on my elbows and heels and feel the difference.

    Hope to ein this and some other awesome items.

  28. Jeeun Kim on December 11th, 2012 7:02 am

    Shea butter, coconut oil & beeswax–& nothing else–sounds AMAZING! My skin has been so irritated!

  29. Deah :) on December 11th, 2012 8:22 am

    I actually made bars with her kit last year, but would really like to try the cocoa…

  30. Sheila Nettles on December 11th, 2012 8:35 am

    I have a bar of the MadeOn Au Chocolate Hard Lotion and I love it! I would like to win so I can try some of the other products.

  31. Katherine Kasten on December 11th, 2012 9:44 am

    We would use the hard lotion the most. I am purchasing it for a gift for my husband, he gets horribly cracked skin in the winter and the less ingredients the better for a great healing lotion.

  32. Amy P on December 11th, 2012 10:35 am

    The lotion in a tin sounds amazing! Thanks for the chance to win!

    I would like to try the Hard Lotion. I always have cracks on my fingers.

  35. Janelle F. on December 11th, 2012 11:21 am

    Hard butter sounds like a great product! My whole family would probably benefit from the lip balm.

    I want to try it all! With two of us in the family with sensitive skin, fewer ingredients = BETTER! I like the idea of the hard lotion bars. the Bug Block would be great to send with a kid to camp, too, and to pack in the baseball equipment bag. Au Chocolat – that one must smell and feel amazing.

  43. Kathy Brown on December 11th, 2012 1:56 pm

    My mother has had problems for years with dry cracked hands and even her head to the point of bleeding. These products, particularly the hair butter, sound perfect for her, since we have so much gluten intolerance in the family.

  44. Dorothy on December 11th, 2012 1:56 pm

    I would love to try this product. I think the Bee Silk would be best for my family.

  45. connie curtis on December 11th, 2012 2:06 pm

    I dont use many products but the hard lotion sounds great. I dont use alot of lotion because of allergies, chemicals in them. This one sounds great and easy to travel with and also the lip balm. My husband uses lip balm and finding a good clean product that is awesome.

  46. Sharon on December 11th, 2012 2:16 pm

    I’d love to try the hair butter for my curly/frizzy hair. I’d love the DIY kit as well so I can make a bunch of bars for myself and friends!

    My family and I would definitely love the Hard Lotion – we have dry skin and I am tired of chemical filled lotions. This sounds perfect! I’d also enjoy the lip balm – I don’t wear make-up so the tinted ones would jazz up my lips a bit :-)
