Blue Ridge Gypsy Studio with Giveaway **Closed**

All products distributed by Blue Ridge Gypsy Studio® are designed and formulated by owner and practicing pharmacist, Julie Hilton, who has over 30 years experience in compounding and natural skin care. “I started the Studio in 2000 when my husband and I moved to the Blue Ridge of Virginia. Our friends were calling us “gypsies,” so the name evolved naturally.”

Naturally occurring vegetable oils and butters contain indigenous nutrients, antioxidants, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), and antibacterial agents that petroleum-based oils just don’t have. Natural oils absorb into the skin and do not feel greasy. They also come from replenishable sources, which is a great environmental concern.

The products created for Blue Ridge Gypsy Studio are formulated to be safe, effective in soothing your skin, and affordable. The Blue Ridge Gypsy line uses only the finest natural oils and butters in our formulations. Blue Ridge Gypsy products are scented with pure, organic essential oils.



I love finding new and yummy smelling natural products for me and the kids. I have decided that this year I want to do my best to use only natural and organic products on my and the kids skin from now on. It only makes sense. The one big thing that has held me back before, other than convinence, was cost. More and more natural and organic products can be purchased around town and online ordering is so easy. The cost at Blue Ridge Gypsy studio is only a bit more than your typical name brand soaps out there.

We got to try out the natural luquid soap and the handmade shea butter soap in Grapefruit Geranium. The soap retails for $4.99 for a 4oz bar, a bit more money but way better for you. You are putting this right onto your skin and so you want it to be as natural as possible. They make their shea butter soap the old-fashioned way and add lots of super moisturizing shea butter to ensure your skin will be soft and smooth.

The natural liquid soap was great too! At only $10.99 for 12oz its a steal. Its a rich, moisturizing soap and is made the old fashioned way from natural vegetable oils with no harsh chemicals, preservatives, or ingredients you can't pronounce. It offers great lather and won't dry out your skin. We are really enjoying this soap. If you can say that about soap :)

One lucky winner is going to win one handmade shea butter soap, one bottle of Butter Crème Hand and Body Lotion and one bottle of natural liquid soap all in their choice of scent. Its really hard to choose scents for other people I find so its best that you choose your own.

To Enter:

Go to Blue Ridge Gypsy Studio and tell me what scent you would choose if you won
(This must be done for any additional entries to count)

The winner will have 72 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen.
