Feelin' a LIL SNARKY

I am hooked! The Perfectly Posh Big Fat Yummy Hand Creme Lil Snarky, is a new staple in my purse!  A couple months ago I sat across from a friend who offered me some hand cream.  Leary of undesired exposure to chemicals, I hesitated... Knowing my quirks she assured me that it was made by a company that uses products that are safe for consumers and for the environment.  In fact the company lists the ingredients of each product in the back of their catalog.  I couldn't stop thinking about the lotion that I had used that evening. After a month I reached out to her to see how I could get some of my own.  Lucky for me she sells it. So, I ordered my own and I am happy I did!

One mesmerizing use wasn't enough for me to endorse it just yet.  I wanted to know if it lived up to it's first impression during the gauntlet of mothering duties, work, play, and more.  So I agreed to do a FULL review of the product. I used the product everyday for the past week and found that the scent was pleasing without being overwhelming and my hands felt super soft.  I generally would reapply 1-2 times throughout the day.  One day I had left my Lil Snarky at home in a different purse.  I realized that my feeling of disappointment was proof of my new addiction.  
The Big Fat Yummy Hand Cream, Lil Snarky is made by a company called Perfectly Posh.  It is a direct sales company geared to empowering women and creating natural based products.  Their catalog is filled with super fun vintage pin-up style photographs and great tips for using their products.  I found myself creating a long wish list of foot scrubs, sea salt spray, body butters, detox masks and more.  Being a frugal (by marriage) shopper I was excited that all their products were under $25.  Then there was an added bonus, if you buy five products you get the sixth FREE.  Plus if you spend $100 then you receive FREE shipping.  Their products are free of any paraben or paraffins.  

Tip: These products would make great teacher gifts.  I know most of us wait till the end of the year, but now is a great time to encourage a teacher as we approach the home stretch to summer!

Product safety: I found that most of the ingredients were within my acceptable ranges for safety.  I usually look for ingredients with a score of 3 or less,   The Lil Snarky hand cream did have one ingredient that was scored at a 4.  After reviewing the ingredients and feeling how soft my hands felt it was a safe product to introduce into my lifestyle.
