Oh my goodness you guys, I am so stoked to tell you about an amazing woman named Jess aka Mamadukes!!! Ok, where do I start?? Jess was very generous enough to send me Tanganilla Bath Salts , Tanganilla Body Butter and 2 Gourmet Lip Balms which all THREE ( I know I named 4 things but my daughter stole one of my lip balms from me already!) equaled a PERFECT, RELAXING Spa night for me! Let me share with you a little bit more about Mamadukes before I tell you more about my lovely experience with my Bath Salts and Body Butter.

Here is some information I took from Mamadukes “About Me” section

” I started out by making Heiney Goop for my boys to use with our cloth diapers, and from there, began playing with lotions, body wash, and other product for our whole family. I’m just starting out, so look forward to an expanding line of products. I welcome your ideas and requests as well! Like my facebook page, Mamadukes Natural Care, at, to keep up with what I’m working on next.

As my products are (almost) all natural ingredients, made with no artificial preservatives, sometimes certain products may separate, become runny, or have small bits of herbs or flowers in them. This is generally not cause for alarm. If something becomes runny, usually a few hours in the refrigerator will solidify it again. If, however, any product starts to smell funky or appears off, discontinue use (and contact me). Also, if any product causes any irritation, discontinue use (and contact me).

None of my products have been evaluated by the FDA, and are all intended for cosmetic use only. Products are meant for external use, and despite how tasty the ingredients may sound, should not be eaten.

Most of my ingredients come from Mountain Rose Herbs, and I trust them to provide reliable ingredients free from GMOs, USDA and Oregon Tilth certified organic, and Fair for Life fair trade certified. My beeswax comes from a local (to South Jersey) apiary, called Shepherds Watch Farm. 

My Thoughts:

The Tanganilla Bath Salts were so luxurious  to soak in and the smell was SOO delicious, no wonder why Jess has to mention that no matter how tasty the ingredients may sound they are not to be eaten! Haha. You will understand if you purchase these!  I have such dry skin during the winter and soaking in these lovely bath salts make my skin feel so much better afterwards. But what really helped my thirsty skin was that  I got to spoil myself with the   Tanganilla Body Butter after I was done. The body butter from Mamadukes Is a miracle worker. It is so thick and creamy you can tell just by looking at it that it is the real deal! When I first put it on I was kind of iffy about how well it would rub into my skin because it sort of felt a tad greasy, but I was wrong. After massaging it into my arms, legs and hands really good it felt great, NOT greasy at all!  I now use my body butter everyday before bed, and as if I even have to say it again but I will.. MMMmmm It smells SO good!!! The 2 Gourmet Lip Balms that I was sent are Cherry and Vanilla Coffee and they are great as well. They make your lips very soft and smell great. I love them and everything else I was lucky enough to find out about and try!



Mothers Day is coming up quick (May 11th hint hint) and Mamadukes Natural Care products would be the PERFECT gift for the women in your life that you love. They will thank you, trust me! Be sure to check out all of Mamadukes other products as well. There is so much more!

Our Review:
My daughter loves Sofia The First and anything Disney Princess related! I myself have always been a huge fan of Disney too, that is why I never mind having Disney JR on for our TV time. I love the examples Sofia illustrates and sets in every episode for young children. She is a great role model for inspiring “princess'” like my little girl. If you watch Sofia The First you know that many great classic Princess’ have made appearances on the show but I do have to say that The Floating Palace With Princess Ariel’s arrival has been one of our absolute favorites!! We watched the premiere when it aired on TV and have watched this great DVD over and over again. My daughter can not get enough. I highly recommend parents to purchase this DVD for your little ones today! It would make for a great Easter gift and even better family movie night!
