{Giveaway Love} Soaps + Such

Welcome to Giveaway Love - the newest Friday Feature here on lemon drop studio's blog. Each Friday there will be a new giveaway, so make sure to check back often!

More details about Giveaway Love can be found here.

{Giveaway Love Guest}: Soaps + Such

Presenting our
15th Giveaway Love Giveaway, from Soaps + Such found on etsy, and also on their blog, here.


Up for grabs: Spearmint Green Tea Soap (4.5 oz) and Lip Butter Sampler

Spearmint Green Tea Soap is a refreshing and sensual blend of spearmint and powdered green tea. As you sniff, the minty spearmint scent gives way to a rich, smokey green tea with a slight floral note. This is a deep and true green tea scent!

Their soaps contain a blend of skin loving oils that will keep your skin soft and moisturized, even in hard water. Special additives are used in generous doses to insure our soap will make you feel so good you keep coming back for more!

Kaolin clay- for luxurious lather
Shea butters- for keeping your skin soft
Cocoa butter- for keeping your skin silky

Lip Butter is a lip balm that smells good, feels great, and really moisturizes your lips. If you want soft, smooth lips then you want Lip Butter!

Your sample Lip Butter will come in an adorable mini tube that measures 1 5/8 inches tall (from bottom to top of the cap) and 5/8 inches wide. These are small enough to travel anywhere inconspicuously yet they hold enough lip butter that get quite a bit of use out of them. Some customers actually prefer this size.

Flavor choices:

Cocoa Banana- Rich chocolate and sweet banana
Strawberry Splash- Sweet, flavorful strawberry
Iced Peppermint- Pure peppermint essential oil
Banana Taffy- Sweet, candy-like banana
Fudgesicle- Reminds me of a Tootsie Roll
Banana Berry- Sweet and fresh combo of bananas and berries
Chocolate Mint Chip- Creamy chocolate and fresh mint

darling facial hair


So, did the blog title grab your attention? I sure hope so. It's not one you find on lemon drop studio's blog all too often.

I have talked about the felt mustaches in lemon drop studio's shop before, I believe, but just wanted to showcase them again in case anyone missed them.

lemon drop studio specializes in barbershop mustaches, made from a stiff, eco-friendly felt. The polyester in the felt comes from recycled post-consumer plastic bottles. This gives us a piece of mind that we're doing a little bit to do our part and recycle. Mustaches are available in brown or black, or if you want a different color, feel free to ask. Grey might be funny!!

The best part about using the still felt is that you can do so many things with your mustache without it flopping all over your face. You can adhere them to magnets, ask lemon drop studio to put them on a wooden stick (great for family photos and wedding parties!), you can attach it to jump rings and make a pendant--- the list goes on and on.

I just finished up a custom order of 8 black mustaches that will be on their way to Colorado today. I love getting fun orders like this. So if you have a family reunion coming up, a Halloween costume in need of facial hair or just want to be silly - let lemon drop studio help you with your facial hair needs.

*disclaimer: my son does not really have a mustache, but look at how cute even little kids look when modeling lemon drop studio's mustaches.

sweet skulls?

lemon drop studio apologizes for not having a Giveaway Love this week. Things around the studio have been so busy and we needed a break to compile thoughts, clean clutter and create some new products. There will be a giveaway posted this Friday though, so stay tuned.

So, do you want to see what lemon drop studio has been working on?

Introducing Skull Cards. Fun for any time, not just Halloween. My son refers to these cards as my Pirate Cards.



lemon drop studio is also working on a few goodies for Halloween to have in the shop. There are skull tags and such for your Halloween enjoyment.




We are so happy that fall is right around the corner, and from us to you, we hope you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
