CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Dandrea Margaret Review and Giveaway!!



Dolce Mia is one of those online beauty shops that one grows to love imme­di­ately after try­ing their amaz­ing skin care prod­ucts. You can find lus­cious smelling soaps, hand cleansersbody wash, shampoo’s and con­di­tion­ers, all in an exten­sive array of deli­cious scents!!





Based in Sebastopol, CA, Dolce Mia Designs is a family-run busi­ness spe­cial­iz­ing in high-end gifts and dec­o­ra­tive acces­sories. “We offer a wide range of prod­ucts and styles. We are known for our fun, vin­tage designs and the qual­ity of our prod­uct. Jenny’s back­ground is in museum edu­ca­tion, Alex’s is in physics. This busi­ness began in 1991 as Jenny’s hobby.”


“Our bar soap:  Our bar soap is con­sid­ered “pure soap” which means that there are no deter­gents, no sul­fates and no alco­hol.   So real and pure is our bar soap, the FDA does not require that the ingre­di­ents be listed on the label.  Many bars on the mar­ket are actu­ally deter­gents, and not soaps at all. They are called “syn­det bars”, or syn­thetic deter­gent bars. They are made from syn­the­sized chem­i­cals (pow­dered deter­gent) and are typ­i­cally much harsher than soap. True soap, like ours, is made from nat­ural oils and is gen­tle –much more mild than detergents.

Glyc­er­ine is good!  And our bar soap con­tains a high amount of nat­ural veg­etable glyc­er­ine.   A nat­ural humec­tant, glyc­er­ine attracts mois­ture to the skin.  Glyc­erin soaps are known to have a mild ph and are gen­tle, mois­tur­iz­ing and soft­en­ing.  A high glyc­er­ine soap is espe­cially good for sen­si­tive and del­i­cate skin, and for children.”






As many of you know, I am always encour­ag­ing every­one to go green and use nat­ural prod­ucts. When I say nat­ural skin care prod­ucts, I mean using prod­ucts that will not leave a foot­print on mother earth. Choose awe­some nat­ural skin­care prod­ucts like those from Dolce Mia.


One of the main rea­sons it is so impor­tant to use the best nat­ural skin care prod­ucts when you can is because about 60% of what you apply to your skin will be absorbed into your body and into your blood­stream. This is great news for those nutri­ents and ingre­di­ents that are healthy for us, but it is bad news for those chem­i­cals that we do not want inside our bodies.





Dolce Mia sent me one of their hot sell­ing gift sets from their “Spread the Love col­lec­tion”. Included in this phe­nom­e­nal gift set is:

♥Guest Bar in Trop­i­cal Citrus

Dolce Mia donates 10% of prof­its from Spread the Love prod­ucts to Becom­ing Independent’s Fam­ily Resource and Advo­cacy Cen­ter which pro­vides infor­ma­tion and assis­tance to fam­i­lies and chil­dren with chil­dren with all types of dis­abil­i­ties through edu­ca­tion, sup­port, and a vari­ety of direct services.





I give Dolce Mia a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend their awe­some prod­ucts to everyone!!
