The Treasure Boutique- GIVEAWAY

See that fun bowl of lip balm? Cute huh? The lip balm have personalized labels that Juliann of the Treasure Boutique on Etsy made me. You can see too well what they say, maybe you can if you click on the picture. If not there is a picture below. 
Juliann is the owner of The Treasured Boutique. She was so easy to work with. If you know my at all IRL, you'll know that I'm so indecisive. I didn't even know what I wanted on my labels. I sent her some ideas of art I liked, and a scripture. She came up with this gorgeous label. Here's a picture of it

Juliann made the lip balm with Beeswax, EVOO, Coconut oil, Hemp oil, Cocoa butter, Shea butter, Mango butter, Honey, Vitamin E, and flavoring. She does DIY party kits if you want a fun activity to do at a party with tweens or girl's/mommy's night out. The premade lip balm with personalize labels are great for favors (wedding/parties/showers), I have my blog address on mine. What cute "business cards"!
Juliann not only designed my labels for me, her communication was quick, I felt she was attentive and "on the ball." When I got my lip balms they had a design similar to the one posted above. I'm telling you this because her customer service is AWESOME.  I emailed her and let her know that it was no biggie, if she could just send me new labels I could put them on myself. The labels came right off the lip balms I had. She emailed me back right away and said that she would ship out new lip balms done correctly, and send me new labels. *Jaw drop* talk about awesome customer service! She didn't have to do that at all! Just amazing.
The lip balm itself goes on smooth. Some lip balms melt at body temperature and go on gritty. This lip balm goes on smooth, is moisturizing but not oily. AND it's not sticky. My hair doesn't stick to my lips!

Juliann also has other gift and favor items on her Etsy shop. Like this bracelet, how pretty is that? 
 Here is some more information about Juliann and The Treasured Boutique straight from her!


My name is Juliann, company name The Treasure Boutique.
For the past 20 years I have been creating a variety of items and selling them to friends and family. Over the years it has expanded, taking on a life of its own. People started to seek me out without my even trying. I then started to offer my products at local Boutiques, Fairs, and events. I have always enjoyed it so much. So once I discovered Etsy, I started The Treasure Boutique to promote my business. I chose my name based on the fact that I will always offer an endless variety of creations. I know that I have limitations, but when it comes to crafting I haven't found many. Creating a custom item for somebody that they love is the highlight of what I do. I don't plan on stopping any time soon :).
As far as the Lip Balm itself, I have always been very picky about what kind I wanted to purchase.  I hated when it tasted like a crayon.  If it is too oily, it comes off fast. Too waxy and it is hard to get on.  If the ingredients aren't great, it creates an addict out of your lips and you have to have it on constantly.  So after many purchases that only frustrated me, I decided to make my own.  I have worked with products and different ingredients to make my recipe what I consider perfect.  I have many people tell me that they will never use a store bought lip balm again.  I feel the same.
Every lipbalm is made to order. The ingredients in the balm itself (aside from some of the flavoring) are completely natural. I slow melt everything so it doesn't loose any nutrients. Then I work with my customers 1 on 1 to create a fabulous label that they will love. I haven't had one customer less than thrilled with the end result.
