Badger (Badger Badger - Ha Ha, It's In Your Head Now)

I know, I know, I've got to stop doing this Posting Once A Month thing.  I'm going to try, but I won't make any promises.  You should forgive me.  I'm awesome.


Down here in Houston, for the last few weeks, the weather's been a bit bipolar.  Mid-seventies to mid-eighties during the day, and low forties at night.  Work's been cranking the AC and heat to help combat it, which is doing nothing but giving me sinus headaches and pissed off skin.  My hands are dry, my elbows are dry, my whole body wants moisture.  I'm drinking water out the ying yang, but my hands were still really pissed, as was the skin on my arms. 

What's a girl to do?  Use it as an excuse to buy more beauty crap.  Duh.

I dig hippie organic things because that's how I roll.  So after some Googling, I figured I'd try out some stuff from Badger Organic Body Care.  Also, because badgers are awesome.  I got their Rose Geranium soap and their hallmark Badger Balm.


This soap is a dream.  It's a no frills, grey block of soap that does just what it says it will: it moisturizes and nourishes your skin.  It smells lovely, it doesn't make my already dry skin feel tight or angry, and it doesn't leave me feeling slick or stripped the way some shower gels can.  I don't use it on my face, because the last thing my face needs is moisture, but for my body?  A+, 6.49 USD.  Protip: You can use this on your junk.  I'm UTI prone, and my outer junkal sections say this is a-okay.  


Badger Balm is a really concentrated balm that I've been using on my hands, cuticles, and elbows.  I've noticed a difference after only a few uses, which is impressive.  It's concentrated, so two ounces is actually a lot of product.  It reminds me of Burt's Bees hand salve in formulation.  The smell may be an acquired taste for some people.  I like it; it reminds me of camping.  The oils that give it its smell are birch and wintergreen, so if you don't like smelling like a forest, try one of their other balms.  B, 7.99 USD.
