Welcome to the Party!

Yay! You made it! I am so excited to see you!

Today is a glorious occasion my friends! Can you tell by my exclamation point abuse? 

Thank you for joining me as I celebrate the grand reopening of Frances Is A Beauty! 

The past year has been a long one. It feels good to be back here talking to you guys about beauty stuff. I really missed it, and I really missed you!

Before the festivities start rolling, I wanted to take a minute to thank the lovely Lisa of For Goodness Grape. Without her none of this would have been possible. Her generosity and support is appreciated, and I am extending the biggest internet hug EVAH to her right now. Thanks so much Lisa! You are a STAR!

So let's get on with it, shall we?

Every day this week I am going to feature and review a different product from For Goodness Grape. This isn't the first time I have teamed up with Lisa and her gorgeous products. You may recall this post in which my husband's dog ate my beloved Sugar Lip Scrub. I loved everything I reviewed then, and was delighted to team up with Lisa again for my week long celebration!

My For Goodness Grape Swag
Lisa has always been smitten with lip balm and perfume, and is one of those "makers" You know, the folks that can take a Q-tip, thread, a paperclip and some coffee beans and make the most gorgeous necklace that sells for $80.00 on Etsy. I have always dreamed of being a maker. My brain and hands don't share that dream though. Lisa decided that it was her calling to make beauty products that contained premium ingredients that were affordable to all. Since starting For Goodness Grape Lisa has been enjoying the creativity that the indie life allows her to have. She has been on Etsy for three years, and has recently launched her very own online store!

All of Lisa's products are made with high quality, natural ingredients. She hand blends them in small batches when you order them, ensuring you receive the freshest product possible. Each and every product she carries contains two to four moisturizing butters and two to three skin softening oils. 

Needless to say, Lisa's products are wildly popular and loved by many. Her cult following (I have a membership card in my wallet) say that her lip balm is the best in the land. I couldn't agree more. I have a lip balm addiction and have tried every lip balm that has ever been made. Trust me.

Today I am going to talk about what I consider to be For Goodness Grape's bread and butter....lip balm.

Drooling yet?
These lip balms are my favorite for a reason. They are so moisturizing, and long lasting! Each tube is packed with moisture rich ingredients like lip quenching butters and four super hydrating oils. They also protect your lips from the elements, and make you pout gleam with the prettiest shine. 

The selection of lip balm flavors on the For Goodness Grape website is plentiful. You are sure to find something delicious. I chose four different flavors:

Because, bacon.

Circus Peanuts
For those who know me well know that circus peanuts are not safe around me. I almost ate this lip balm.

Lavender Marshmallow
Perfect for my nightstand. Soothing and relaxing. Like a creamy lavender colored vanilla cloud.

Vanilla Coconut
I have said it before and I will say it again. My ultimate goal in life is to walk around in a coconut vanilla cloud.
