True Life: I'm a Product Junkie

Amerikan Goddess's Products 

This semester, I was given the pleasure and opportunity to try out a few of Amerikan Goddess's products. As product junkie, I was very anxious and eager to try these goodies out. I wanted to make sure I used them for at least a month before giving my honest review on them. 

A little background info on the company Amerikan Goddess, all of their products are 100% natural and handcrafted. Amerikan Goddess works to create products that relaxes the body, mind, and soul from the stress of everyday life. Their products includes candles, soaps, sugar scrubs, & lip balms. If you are in the Tallahassee area, you can now find their products at the Art of the Catwalk. They can also be found and contacted on their website Amerikan GoddessTwitter page. 

So, let's start with my favorite product in the bunch; the Strawberry Margarita Whipped Sugar Souffle Moisturizing Sugar Scrub. This moisturizing sugar scrub was just heavenly. I used both in and out the shower. After showering or while I was in the shower, I simply massaged the scrub onto my body until all the sugar bits went away. It left my skin feeling incredibly soft. What I love the most about this product was how it is able to exfoliate and seal in moisturize at the same time. The smell is not overpowering at all, and gives you this pleasant earthy scent throughout the day. If you feel that your skin is lacking moisture and softness, then this is the product for you. If you are interested in trying it out but not wanting to get the larger sizes, you can purchase the travel size for only $3.75. 

Ingredients: Shea Butter, Raw Cane Sugar, Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Fragrance, Vitamin E Oil, Rosemary Extract.  

Product Description: Stay sweet with a moisturizing sugar souffle! A sugar souffle is a sugar scrub with added skin loving ingredients.

  • Exfoliates 
  • Seals in Moisture
  • Lovely Scent
  • Natural Ingredients 
  • Affordable 
  • Sugar bits take awhile to go away

Another goodie I got to try out, is the Glass Jar Candle. For all you candle lovers out there, this scented candle is for you! I used the candle on numerous occasions and it's still lasting. What I enjoyed about this particular candle was not only the scent but how even once the candle was no longer lit the scent still lingered in the room. This candle has a fruity, strawberry, delectable aroma to it. This candle is a nice way to drown out a long day at school or work. I especially loved using it on days I was doing some heavy house cleaning. I'm not too fond of a bleach smelling house, so I would light this candle right before getting down to the nitty gritty. You cannot go wrong with product and it's only $5.

Next Up, is the Oatmeal, Honey, & Almond Soap. I did not too much care for this soap at all. Being that I love my soaps with strong scents to them, I was a bit disappointed that this soap did not have one. Don't get me wrong the soap did its job, my body was as clean as can be. It most certainly nourished my skin as it describes. I just would have liked it more if there was a stronger smell to it. However, if you are someone who does not care for heavily scented soaps, then you may find this to be something you would enjoy. For a pretty large block of soap you can get this item for $4.99. 

Ingredients: Water, Coconut Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, Olive Oil, Sunflower Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Shea Butter, Oatmeal Flakes, Lanolin, Fragrance

Product Description: Treat your skin to a luxurious, skin nourishing and exfoliating bar of soap.


  • Cleans and Nourishes Skin
  • Homemade
  • No Overbearing Scent (for those who prefer soaps that are not heavy scented) 
  • Affordable

  • No Scent (for those who prefer soaps with some kind of strong scent)

Lastly, are the Wax Tarts. Unfortunately, I have not been able to try these out yet because I do not own a wax warmer. Nonetheless, I will be on the lookout for one and will return with a review on this item. 

Product Description: Want to try something new? Try a Wax Tart! Wax Tarts are just like wickless candles. All you have to do is warm the wax in a wax burner.
