PSA: Haus of Gloi Cyber Monday Treats!

I just placed my Cyber Monday order with Haus of Gloi - I admit I have become somewhat obsessed.  They are offering some previously sold-out products, as well as some specially-made products just for Cyber Monday.

More details after the jump!

 The Black Apple Pumpkin Butter eluded me (curses!), but I did get a Pumpkin Queen Bubbling Scrub at a low low price, along with whipped soaps in all the special Cyber Monday holiday scents ("Reverie" scents) - Spiced Cocoa, Sweet Potato Treat, and Peppermint Cocoa.  And since I was springing for the shipping, I snagged some of the Vice-scented products from their permanent line which I had been dying to try.

Britton, the Master Potioner behind Haus of Gloi, describes the Reverie fragrances as follows:

Spiced Cocoa (Limited edition) - "Double the warmth, hot cuppa cocoa and mild wintery spices!"

Sweet Potato Treat (Limited edition)  - "For me, this is the epitome of holiday comfort food: Sweet potatoes with mild spices, butter and brown sugar baked off with marshmallows."

Peppermint Cocoa (Limited edition) - "When I was a kid, I used to infuse the milk for my hot cocoa with a bag of peppermint tea. This is just that, a hot cuppa cocoa infused with peppermint!"

This last one I just couldn't resist.  It sounds delicious, and evidently other agree as it is always selling out: 
Vice (Permanent) - "Steam billows rolling off a vessel of fresh made Turkish coffee, marshmallow goo tainted by graham cracker crumbs, toasted hazelnuts all blanketed in the blackest chocolate."
So far I have tried the Pumpkin Butters and Sugar Exfoliants, and they are among my all-time favorite products.  Click here to see my previous review of Pumpkin Queen Sugar Exfoliant and Parkin Pumpkin Butter.  I have very dry, itchy skin in the winter, and these products have become my first line of defense.

Since I posted that review I have used the Eggnoggin Sugar Exfoliant and Pumpkin Butter, and those are divine as well.  The formula of both products holds true across scents, and I have to say the Eggnoggin fragrance is a dead-ringer for its namesake.  If you are an eggnog fan or if you like spicy-sweet scents, you will love Eggoggin!

If you have not tried Haus of Gloi, I highly recommend their products.  The scents are truly unique and the quality is top-notch.  Best of all, they are 100% vegan and cruelty free.

The Cyber Monday Sale is going on now through tomorrow at 12pm PST, and stock is going fast.
