Healthy Options of Days Gone By Review and Giveaway...

****Congrats to the winner #191 Janie!****


We recently had the chance to try out several products from Healthy Options of Days Gone By.

We DO NOT use fragrances, preservatives or any artificial scents or colors, our products are imperfect, just as nature intended! We like to think we are for the little people too, unlike the commercial industry and just trying to sell something. We want our consumers to be knowledgeable about their health and to be proactive! While offering high quality products at the lowest possible prices"

What we thought: We were so excited to try out such a great variety of healthy body products! The soaps were lovely. They smelled wonderful and really did a great job leaving our skin clean, but not dried out. They were so pretty too:) The lip balms were easy to apply and left our lips feeling soft, smooth and moisturized. I really liked the subtle scent of the lemon balm...quite refreshing:) The hand cream was unlike any other I've tried, but I really liked it. It moisturized really well without leaving any residue behind and it, like everything else, smelled great! The Sugar Scrub was pretty awesome too. It did a wonderful job of exfoliating, but was super gentle and left my skin feeling really good:) The variety at Healthy Options of Days Gone By is pretty impressive. They have a large variety of body balms and salves, powders, candles, sachets and more along with everything we reviewed. If you are looking for affordable, quality, natural body products and more you should definitely visit their shop! They ship super fast too! ABCD Diaries gives Healthy Options of Days Gone By an A+!
