I’ve waxed eloquent many times about how much I love the hard lotion from MadeOn Skin Care Products. In fact, Renee (the owner) is my guest on today’s podcast. She’s a sweetheart and I wish I could meet her and her family in real life — and maybe one day I will.

You can read what I think about hard lotion here and here and here. :) You won’t be surprised — I love it unequivocally.

So, this post is all about a giveaway! Renee from MadeOn is giving two readers a $50 gift certificate. If you win, you can spend it on hard lotion bars, DIY kits, eBooks, lip balms, body butter… I’m sure you’ll figure it out. 😉

Before I get to the giveaway, I want to mention two things — they’re important!

Free DIY eBook

Renee’s “My Buttered Life” series of eBooks include recipes for making your own nourishing skin care products. There’s a summer edition, baby edition, and gift-giving edition.

If you’re a member, menu plan subscriber, or eBook purchaser at GNOWFGLINS during November 2012, you’re going to get the gift-giving edition of her My Buttered Life eBook free!

It includes five recipes that just may give you everything you need to get started with your holiday gift giving plans — chocolate body mousse, flavored lip balms, chocolate peppermint lotion bars, scented and shaped lotion bars, and beeswax candles.

(Put that together with the 15% discount mentioned below and you’ve got a true recipe for success.)

  1. Sarah D says

    I love their chocolate scented stuff. I can’t make that myself and it’s SO yummy! I would probably get some of that as well as the DIY kit.

  2. Angie says

    I love all her products! I’ve turned quite a few people on to hard lotion, and would probably use the certificate to buy more DIY kits for Christmas!

  3. Mira K. Bryan says

    I would get the goats soap because we just like it better than anything we’ve tried but can’t afford it!

  4. Sarah says

    Awesome! I am so looking forward to the eBook. I have made my own version of hard lotion bars in the past, sort of winging it from other recipe sites and it worked out pretty good, but I would love some guidance. I agree that they are the best for truly getting your hands softened up and moisturized though.

  5. Mary says

    My sister made me a lotion bar from one of the ebooks. LOVE IT!!!!! Would love to be able to try out more products!

  6. Angie says

    Would love to try more natural products that are healthier for my skin. Always looking for new products that are made from natural sources.

  7. Maureen says

    I would get the Bee Silk family size hard lotion bar and I love goat milk soap, so that would be on the list as well.

  8. Meredith N says

    I bought the Bug repellent bar after reading about it here, but haven’t had a chance to try it yet. Looking forward to that, and hopefully more!

  9. Sarah Cooper says

    I’d get a bunch of DYI kits for my friends and I to do together, and get in on some Bee Silk action. Thanks for a chance to win!!!

  10. angela says

    I think I would get some of her lotion bars and a kit to make my own. I have been wanting to try her stuff for a long time.

  11. says

    I am very intrigued by the lotion bars and would love to try them. Lotion bars and a DIY kit would be on my shopping list. Thanks for the generous giveaway!!

  12. Lynne says

    I buy only natural products for my dh and I to use on our skin and would especially like to try the Bee Silk bar lotions and the Lip balm. The pocket-sized bar lotion would be great to keep in my purse! I like the idea of using tins as they are compact and would be a nice space-saver.

  13. Jennifer says

    I would try the beesilk bar. I would really like to try the Hair Butter to see if it straightens my husband’s hair, and calm down the frizzes any. I would also try some of the rash cream. It sounds like it would be good for cloth diapers.

  14. Sarah Shrode says

    I would LOVE to try out the hard lotion and also get some lip balms and travel bars to give as Christmas gifts and spread the word about how many awesome natural products there are!

  15. Jennifer says

    I have tried the Au Chocolat bar and it is fantastic! My heals get pretty dry and cracked and they are helped immensley by the bar. I would love to try some of the other items if I win. It takes a bit to warm up on my skin in the cold of winter, but is worth it!

  16. Leatha says

    If I were to win a gift certificate, I would love trying all of the products especially the lotion bars and lip balms.

  17. Robin Morgan says

    I’ve been experimenting at making my own soap, liquid soap, lotion, etc. for about a year now and am happy with all my products. I would love to get some new ideas!!

  18. says

    Hi, Wardeh:

    Blessings to you and your lovely family! :) <3

    Thanks for the opportunity to try your products.

    I use coconut oil and raw honey on my face currently and am always looking for natural products.



  20. Sharon says

    Wow. Their items look like really great products. I would get the Rash Cream, several lip balms and the large BeeSilk Gift Pack. Thanks for the giveaway.

  21. Esther says

    I would buy the do it yourself kit and an au chocolat bar. :) Hope I win but I’m also excited to get the free e-book!!

  22. ellens says

    i would buy everything…in duplicate. bu that would be more than $50. the diy kit sound fun…everything really everyhing

  23. says

    I’d love to give the Bug Block a try – I HATE using chemical filled sprays & no “natural” product ever seems to work on me! And the Do It Yourself kit looks like fun, too!

  24. says

    Well, I would spend the money on mostly DIY supplies for myself and my two sisters-in-law. Our whole family would receive hard lotion bars for the holidays! :-)

  25. Sarah F says

    I’d definitely get the bug block bar. we moved in sept and our new place is just rotten with mosquitos. Also the au chocolate. yum!

  26. Brittany Ardito says

    If I win, I will probably buy a little bit of everything- lotions, lip balms, body butter. It all looks good, especially for the holidays :-)

  27. Emily S. says

    I would love to get a DIY kit. I have been wanting to make hard lotion ever since Wardeh first posted about it.

    I love this lotion and would use this certificate to buy more lotion of course! and would also like to try making my own with the kit.

  29. Angela says

    Ive love the hard lotion bar so I would get 1 for me & more for gifts bc Ive been wanting to share with my mom and girlfriends!

  30. Amy says

    I LOVE her lotion bars – works great on my cracking hands & feet. I would love to try the chocolate scent with the gift certificate!

  31. Laura says

    I would stock up on Hard Lotion bars (since I’m running low, order some more soap (I love the soap she sells), and try out the bug block or lip balm.
