This is another great find from the Atlanta Gift Market. I’m not going to lie; I was initially drawn to the booth because of the name – Green Bubble Gorgeous. Then I met the owners of the company, as they were working in the booth themselves, and they were adorable. The kicker for me, however, was how amazing the products were.
I know I’ve harped on it before, but I truly care that a business is women-owned. This company is owned by two lovely ladies who make everything in small batches in Grand Rapids, Ohio. They use the most sustainable, natural, and organic ingredients in all of their formulations. All of their products are scented with essential oils, giving them an aromatherapy purpose, or with phthalate-free fragrance oils. Their packaging is 95 percent eco-friendly and there are no parabens, phthalates, petroleum, or sodium laurel sulfate in anything.
Of course, I wanted everything. I drug my best friend Mary along with me to this show and she had to hold me back. There’s only so much body cream, bath bombs, and sugar scrub that a boutique can sell. So, I picked out my favorites. The shea body butter is like nothing I’ve ever used before. It melts like butter, right into your hand. It’s made of a double whipped blend of organic shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil, and sweet almond oil. You don’t need much… a little goes a long way.
I also got the coordinating shea sugar scrubs which are equally impressive. They are made with organic cane sugar and organic fair trade shea butter. They’re 100 percent natural, super moisturizing, and non-comedogenic. I also brought in some amazing bath bombs. These are really special – when they melt away, a crystal is left behind. They are all hand-pressed with the addition of Dead Sea Salts and Pink Himalayan Salt.
Now with Covid, it’s impossible to let people sample the fantastic products, but I did put some of the body butter and sugar scrub into individual sample cups for you to take home and try for yourself! There is a limited number of those (since I couldn’t buy testers), so stop in soon.
