Sum-Bo-Shine Review and Giveaway!

Contest Closed! Congrats to Meredith!


I've always been into heavily perfumed lotions and bath gels. Red Door by Elizabeth Arden, Japanese Cherry Blossom by Bath and Body Works... mmm. Then something happened. When I became pregnant with Jack and I used my normal products, they turned my stomach. They smelled great in the bottle, but not when they went on my body. Something about hormones or my body chemistry, either way my body just was not having it anymore. I started to seek out natural and organic products that wouldn't leave an alcohol/chemical smell. That is when I found Sum-Bo-Shine.

"Sum-Bo-Shine creates products that are free of artificial fragrances, and do not contain parabens, sodium laurel sulfates, mineral oil or any harmful ingredients while using the least environmentally harmful preservative available on the market today."
Sum-Bo-Shine is headed by Carolyn Deal, she is a mother of three and grandmother of one.
"We have received a lot of emails and phone calls inquiring about the name Sum-Bo-Shine. When friends and family see the name they smile because they know where the name originated. My children's names are Summer (Sum), Rainbow (Bo) and Sunshine (Shine).” ~ Carolyn Deal
Baby Jack loves the Aloe and Lavender Bath Powder. It really is therapeutic.
I love that I can be assured it will be gentle on his dainty little hiney.


A warm bath with a sprinkle or two of this bath powder,
blow a few raspberries in his froggy robe, then it's off to bed for this little man.


Sum-Bo-Shine has been kind enough to offer a giveaway to Mad Madam Em readers! Aren’t you happy you're here?
