I really didn’t do as much indie shopping as I wanted to for the Christmas season. The hub’s car ended up needing a huge amount of repair, and that meant our bank account took a huge hit. But, thanks to a PayPal balance I had forgotten about, I snagged in a few purchases from two indie shops!
Let me introduce you to Badger Face Beauty.
If awesome organic bath & beauty products + adult humor are your thing, then take a seat. You won’t be disappointed.
I stumbled upon Badger Face Beauty on Etsy while looking for organic lip balms for my BFF. I was immediately hooked. Here’s the product description for that Simmah Down Bitch milk bath, direct from their Etsy shop:
Organic lavender and sage milk bath soak, made with milk powder, cornstarch, sodium bicarbonate, oatmeal, organic dried sage, and lavender and sage essential oils from Badgerface Beauty Supply.
You know what blows serious chunks? Meetings. Deadlines. Fucking stress. The kind of shit that makes you frazzled as hell, coming home in straight-up survival mode like what. the. fuck. is my life turning into?
Quit that shit and dip into a deep tub fulla milk bath. It’s warming as fuck. It’s got ground oatmeal to anti-inflammatize your shit, and baking soda to soften your fucking water. It’s got lavender and sage, because who doesn’t love smelling like a fucking herb garden? And the milk powder: prepare to be amazed. It’ll make your legs feel like two sticks of sweet-ass butter. Believe us. You need somma that Simmah Down Bitch Milk Bath Soak.

Just. Perfection. And with each purchase, it’s optional to have the description printed and sent with it for a few extra cents (which you’d better believe I did). I love it. The other thing I was impressed with was how full the products are.
No wasted space…my kind of product. I ordered the milk bath for me, and the rest was for my BFF for Christmas. She loved it all!
I also ordered from Purple Cat Creatives, snagging a few of their soap whips for friends.
They also offer a really cool version of their lotions which I took advantage of for myself: sample size!
As you can see next to the business card, those are small jars. I actually really like that, as I’d hate to order a bigger (and therefore pricier) jar of lotion, only to not like either the texture or scent. These are the perfect size and price to test out, and then find out what I really love to order a full size in the future! Moonflower is the winner for me…I’m so in love with the scent! These products do seem a bit strong, so if overly scented isn’t your thing, this may not be the shop for you.
And the last indie thing I got in December was a present for ME! It was a preorder from August or September that I entirely forgot about.
Two Juicy Ink art books! They are collections of art by Victoria Gedvillas, whom I just adore, and she included SO MANY extras with my order! I was blown away! I love, love my new books, and the prints are now on display in my room as well as my daughter’s. Love it!
I’m excited to keep up the trend of indie shopping in 2016. Between Etsy, Storenvy, and Kickstarter, I’ll have no problem finding things to buy!
