A few weeks ago, I posted a blog entry about cosmetics and all the wonderfully disgusting things that go into making them.

There was one bright spot though- I mentioned a website called Naturally Betsy, that makes face and body care products from all-natural ingredients.

I received quite a few comments and emails about the site and decided to try out some of their offerings.

Now, since I don’t use any type of skin care products, I asked my wife to try them out and give me the results.

My wife has perfect skin, She uses moisturizers, wears sunscreen, and eats a proper diet- basically the polar opposite of what I do. So she tried some of the Naturally Betsy products, and here’s the review she gave me:

NB1Bug Off – I spray this on before filling the bird feeders and birdbaths in the morning (dawn) and before walking the dogs in the evening (dusk) to stay bite free. It really does the job.

 Clean as a Whistle – a good cleaner that I’ve been using on my kitchen counters.  A little goes a long way.  The vinegar smell reminds me of when we used to decorate Easter eggs in the old days.   

 Be Fresh in Sandalwood – I’m calling this “magic in a jar”!  A wonderful all-natural deodorant which is both effective and smells amazing!  I love how it disappears on my skin and doesn’t leave any marks on my clothes.  Absolutely fantastic product!

 Happy Lips – great for my dry summer lips.  I’d recommend one tube for your purse, beach tote or backpack and a second for the nightstand for use just before bedtime.  The lavender scent  is great.   

 Fresh Hands – my bottle of Fresh Hands came to the office with me and lives on my desk.  I love the scent and it’s great aromatherapy for the afternoon hours when I need a pick-me-up or to freshen my hands.

 Happy Heels – Didn’t get a chance to try this for myself…my sister-in-law, the shoe-lover, saw it in my Naturally Betsy bag and her eyes lit up, so I gave it to her and she says it works great.  I’ll need to pick up one of these in my next order.

So there you have it. It passed the Nancy test.

All of my readers (the three of you) should check out the site.

It sounds like it’s the real deal, so I’m recommending it.

I just saw this company feature at W3LL PEOPLE a few weeks ago. I will check it out when I get paid this week.
@Steve- I didn’t know you were married. I thought for sure you were gay. 🙂


Not gay. But join the club. I get hit on by guys at least twice a month. It happened a lot more frequently when I had a mustache though.

But I do have to say, your boyfriend was by FAR the best kisser….


I trust your judgement. I’d buy something for my wife on their site. And why the Monday post? Why did we get two helpings of humor this week?


Deodorant in a jar? I guess you put it on with your hands? That’s weird. So it must be a cream?


I’ve seen this before. You actually smear it on your hand and then rub it on. It just absorbs into your skin with no residue. It doesn’t even stay on your fingers.


This will sound weird, but I have tried the natural deodorants like this. They are usually a weird consistency because they don’t have any preservatives in them. But since it completely absorbs, it is not a big deal. But they seem to work just as well as the stuff you would buy in the store and they aren’t bad for you, so I say try this company. You never know until you try..

P.S. Amy doesn’t wear deodorant. She says it interferes with her natural scent from heaven.
