Jiggystick (a giveaway)

Have you heard of Jiggystick?

I hadn't until a couple of months ago either, but this has quickly become a new favorite of mine and I have been anxious to share it with you!

I saw Jiggystick lip balms and Jiggybar lotion bars featured on one of those daily deal sites and it caught my eye.  I'm a sucker for a good lip balm, and have a couple of friends who have sung the praises  lotion bars, so I looked into it a little.
I went to their website and read about their products, their company, and their purpose.  

First, I was thrilled that it was a local company.  (ok, local is relative since I live in the sticks.)  Jiggystick is up in Cache Valley, just a couple of hours from me where some of my extended family happens to live.  Bonus point number one.
Then I read about their purpose.  That's what really got me.  In March of 2008 their beautiful 15yr old daughter Jocie tragically passed away in a skiing accident.  Turning to keeping bees to provide some level of comfort while mourning this heartbreaking loss, the first harvest of honey also brought a harvest of beeswax.  Jocie, who was known by the nickname "Jiggy" always carried lip balm with her...thus in her memory the all natural beeswax lip balm Jiggystick was born.
You can read more about them and the awesome good that they continue to do for others here.

After learning more about them, I couldn't pass up the chance to try this out.

I have to be honest, the products looked fantastic, the flavors of the lip balms especially, but I am very picky so I figured if they didn't live up to my pickiness that I'd just pass them on to my kids who seem to have inherited my need for lip balm.  I've been a pretty die hard Burt's Bees (pomegranate!) lip balm fan for a couple of years now, so that's ALL I have used for quite some time and I love it.  Jiggystick really had to wow me.

The package arrived quickly and was packaged wonderfully.  I don't know about you but I am a sucker for great packaging.
And the product itself...well, let's just say I have a new lip balm that resides in my purse and that has already been repurchased as a gift for friends.  I seriously love their products!  The Coconut Lime and Raspberry Lemonade lip balms are my current favorites.  They are awesome!
The Jiggybars didn't disappoint either-Mango Splash and Coconut Lemongrass are the two I have tried and they are wonderful!  Coconut Lemongrass is my favorite summer scent, so I instantly fell in love with that.  I tucked that away in my Ragnar bag last month too, and got comments about smelling fabulous after running and sitting in a van for a ridiculous amount of time.  Now that's impressive.

So now, I want you to experience the goodness-
I have a set of five lip balms that one of you will win!
But it gets better.
When I contacted Jiggystick to let them know that I loved their products and was purchasing some to giveaway to you lovely people, they threw in more for you!  
Someone wins the set of lip balms from me, and someone else wins a set of two Jiggybars and five lip balms from Jiggystick!  How awesome are they?

I was in Savannah GA last year and went to a Bee product store. I purchased Mint Julep lip balm and LOVED it. I am very anxious to try Vanilla Mint and Coconut Lime.

I too am addicted to chapstick (carmex). It would be nice to have a more natural addiction. Vanilla mint looks delish!

These sound so delicious - I might have a hard time keeping them to myself (my daughter is a chapstick-thief!)

I'd be interested in the Mango or Lemongrass lip balms. I've never heard of or seen lotion bars...curious now! Would be interested in Mango Splash or Lavendar.

Cucumber melon sounds so soothing! Do they sell locally at all? We're heading out to Utah for vacation, and would love to pick some up!

Catey said...

I believe so, I'm just not sure where! I would suggest sending them a message via the contact link on their website and asking directly. They are great about quick replies! Enjoy yor vacation! :)

Christina Davis said...

Oh man, they all look s good. I am also a chapstick fiend and love trying new ones. Hmmm, I guess the Huckleberry would be #1 choice, but I like the sound of all of them!

Amy Wyatt said...

My picks would be Coconut Lime or any of the Lemon flavors. How Jiggystick came about will tug at your heartstrings. I first found out about this brand through another website and was touched instantly.
