Geneva Springs

Geneva Springs is committed to bringing you high quality skin care products at affordable prices. Dairy Maid Skin Cream was originally made for the rough, cracked hands with dairy farmers in mind. The formulation, however, is so versatile and healing that the target market has spread from dairy farmers and to lavish spa use. Geneva Springs uses real essential oils and the finest ingredients in each of their products. Dairy Maid Skin Cream has a wide array of enchanting fragrances and colors. They have matching soaps and bath salts, as well as Mrs. Tulips lip balms and slim sticks for lips. Her customer’s rave about the relief from symptoms associated with psoriasis, eczema, discoloration, and dry, cracked hands, feet and elbows.
Geneva Springs is an original, locally produced product of Bear Lake County, Idaho. (See History)


My family and I were able to sample the Fruit Loop lip balm, Lavender Baby Powder Skin Cream, and Lavender Bath Salt. My favorite was the Lavender Bath Salts and Skin Cream. The texture of the skin cream is unique with a smooth whipped and creamy texture. My husband loved the smell of the Peppy Mint. Each of my children liked the Fruit Loop Lip Balm. My 16 year old said her favorite was the Lavender Baby Powder Skin Cream too. Your kids will love the Fruit Loop Lip Balm; it smells like Beech-Nut Fruit Stripe Gum.

Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce Review & Giveaway!

Country Bob's Cookbook


My family and I received our shipment of Country Bob's Sauce in the mail today. We are excited about trying it. My husband is grilling out ribs this weekend to celebrate our daughter's 13th birthday and he plans on marinating the ribs with Country Bob's Sauce. Yum!

Brief History:
Country Bob Edson created Country Bob’s Sauce in 1968. He began selling it in 1977 after years of giving it to family and friends. Today Country Bob’s also sells BBQ sauce, Seasoning Salt and Spicy All Purpose Sauce in addition to the regular All Purpose Sauce.

Country Bob’s is more than a steak sauce; you can grill, cook, and marinate with it, or put it in your soups, stews, baked beans, and your other favorite dishes. Want to experience the taste?

Contest has ended. Thanks.

Giveaway ends on Monday, February 23, 2009 at noon Eastern Standard Time and is open to the USA. Winners will be notified shortly afterwards by email. Please respond within 48 hours or you forfeit your prize to another participant.
