Frugal Family Fun: O Splash Cosmetics Review and Giveaway!

O Splash Cosmetics Review and Giveaway!

There are very few things as relaxing as a nice warm bath with great smelling soaps!! That is why I loved trying out O Splash cosmetics!! Founder Brittany Michelle, a makeup artist and skin care specialist wanted to start her own cosmetic line since she finished beauty school. On the road to pursuing her dream, Brittany has worked for such elite companies as Chanel Cosmetics and Bare Escentuals. She eventually quit her job and moved to a small town to get to work!!

Brittany says:

“I draw inspiration mostly from traveling, and music. Many of our product names come from TV shows or is something funny that I have said at one time or another—as I am a huge goof ball and love laughing.
When I am not working on O Splash or taking care of my fur children (Spade my Chihuahua, 4 and Chloe my calico cat, 1), I can be found traveling, visiting historical sites, shopping and spending time with my family.
It is my dream that O Splash will bring awareness to consumers to start buying handmade, home grown products.”



Every O Splash product is handmade, and all fragrances are hand blended to perfection before being poured and hand packaged. Each product is made with only fresh and natural ingredients from the best sources. The packaging is made from rebatched/recycled plastic, aluminum, glass and paper, making packaging easy to recycle! Their products are NEVER tested on animals and use only animal friendly products. And Brittany knows that great products shouldn't break the bank, so everything they make is under $25!!!



O Splash even makes custom soaps-perfect for weddings, birthdays, holiday gifts and businesses!! They can insert pictures, logos, business cards and more into their wonderful soaps! You choose the size, color and scent.



They also support many local charities and organizations. O Splash is currently working with the Music Department at College of Desert. C.O.D. M.U.S.I.C. Is the College of Desert Musically United Students Instrument Club. The mission of this organization of students is to help[ build their school's Music Program by using music to bring the college and community together. O Splash launched “Music the Soap” on April 12th. $3.00 from every sale of the soap goes to benefit the C.O.D. M.U.S.I.C. The soap features music notes and will be in the scent out their current Limited Edition Soap “Willo”.



I got to try some of these yummy soaps!! I especially loved the Cherry Delicious ( anyone who knows me knows I am all about cherries!!! ) Here is how “Cherry Delicious” got its name:



“When I smelled this blend I blurted out “Wow this is cherry delicious,” then I immediately busted out into laughter because I meant to say, “very.” I thought it was cute so we named it Cherry Delicious.”



This exotic soap will exfoliate and sooth the skin. It's made with an exotic blend of black cherry, almond oil, orange,cinnamon with raw sugar cane and ground almonds to slough off dead skin. This soap seriously left me smelling yummy all day! Perfectly girly and sweet!



The Orange You Spicy? Soap is a zesty blend of orange oil, fresh ground cloves and ginger, cinnamon, and fresh orange peels to invigorate your skin and leave you feeling clean and spicy!!



“I couldn't come up with a name for this soap because all I cold think about was the knock-knock joke with the punch line that says “Orange you glad I didn't say banana?” As I was de-modling the soap I was saying that over and aover and over and finally my boyfriend and said “Orange you spicy?” So, the name stuck!”

-Brittany on how “Orange you Spicy?” got its name.



We also got to try the Olive Suds. This soap I handed to my husband, because as soon as I smelled it I thought of him. This soap was actually named after “Oliver Spencer”, which manyof you know as the hot Australian shoe distributor that Carrie Bradshaw meetsin “All that Glitter's” in Season 4 of Sex in the City! The soap gently cleanses while nourishing even the most sensitive skin! It's made with olive oil, aloe, olives and a hint of lavender oil to relax you! When I first saw the label that said “Olive & lavender in Aloe Vera base” I thought it would be girly. No way. It is as manly as the man its named after! O Splash says it “has a very androgynous scent which is great for men or women.”



The soaps are great for my skin and smell even better!! They also came in a super cute reusable pouch!! O Splash wants to offer one of you lucky readers a full size Summers Dream soap



A delightful blend of black cherry, tangerine, lychee and orchid flowers. This soap will leave you feeling refreshed and clean.”
