Winter Giveaway Week: Win 1 of 3 Gift Certificates to Apple Valley Natural Soap

Winter Giveaway Week: Win 1 of 3 Gift Certificates to Apple Valley Natural Soap

There are very few things that I would consider important enough to put in the crazy expensive FedEx package that we’re having shipped to Argentina.

My Apple Valley Shampoo Bars? They made the cut.

Seriously, I am in love with my shampoo bars. Back in the summer, I made a massive order from Apple Valley Natural Soap, buying enough shampoo bars, a few regular body soap bars, and our favorite healing herbal salve to last for the entire year that we’ll be traveling. Every few months, I’m having a box sent to me to replenish our supplies of various items, soap included.

If that isn’t a glowing endorsement, I don’t know what is!

What I love about these shampoo bars is that they’re 100% pure and natural, made with non-toxic ingredients (many of which are organic), they’re gentle on the earth, and they’re made by a family-owned business I’m thrilled to support. I feel confident using them on myself and my kids, without worrying about what we’re being exposed to.

Even better, they leave my hair clean, soft, and shiny AND I can use just one bar from head to toe. That simplicity was fantastic back when I was at home and now that we’re on the road and our family of six shares one toiletry bag, I’m that much more grateful to have a 2-in-1 product that actually works.

How did I get hooked on Apple Valley Shampoo Bars?

After getting to the point where the No ‘Poo Method (much as I wanted to keep loving it) was drying out my hair a little too much, I gave these all-natural soap and shampoo bars a try. There was an initial adjustment period, but my hair quick adapted and the dryness began to go away.

I’ve tried so many different bars over the last couple of years. While there are certain scents I prefer over others, I haven’t found a bar yet that I didn’t like.

A few that have made it into my top picks are Peppermint Tea Tree, Simply Shea, Sea Buckthorn, Wheat and Honey Almond and Coconut Milk and Citrus. There are just SO many amazing bars to choose from.

Their most popular bar! (Surprised? I was! But this bar does it all- soap, shampoo, and shaving, made just for men.)

I also realized that these were more cost effective than buying shampoo from the health food store, which typically start at around $8 and even up to around $15 each. At $6 for a 4.5-5 ounce bar (which is quite large), I can make one bar last for my own hair for about 2 months, which is about the same as a regular sized bottle would last and most days, I don’t feel like I need conditioner.

Not to mention that if you purchase in bulk (less daunting than it sounds), you can actually get bars for free. For every five bars you buy, you get the sixth bar free (up to a total of 3 free bars on an 18-bar order). This brings the bars down to just $5 each, which is an excellent price for such high quality soap bars!

What’s new at Apple Valley Natural Soap this month?

One of the things that makes buying from Apple Valley so much fun is that Natalie is a soapie (you know, like a foodie, but she drools over soap scents instead of Pinterest recipes). She is constantly coming up with new ideas, and they pretty much make me want to drool, too.

For example, their current Limited Edition bar isΒ Masala Chai (which she tells me she’s plotting to bring into the regular line up because she’s in love). I’m a bit jealous, because I can’t buy any right now, so some of you need to try this bar on my behalf, ok?

She also tells me for the month of February, their organic, virgin Jojoba is available in Chocolate Truffle.Β  Natalie uses this personally as a fabulous all-over body moisturizer. It’s light chocolate scent comes from pure cocoa and vanilla absolutes. Can you say yum?

  1. I love Apple Valley Natural Soaps! I used the Honey Tangerine and Carrot shampoo bar and would definitely buy that again, although I’m eager to try the new Masala Chai bar too! Also, I bought the Lavender Chamomile for my daughter, and I want to get another for her as well.

  2. I think I’d get the Wheat and Honey Almond Shampoo Bar and the Wild North Shampoo Bar and the Organic Virgin Argan Oil

  3. These look amazing! I’ve always wanted to try a shampoo bar, but hadn’t found one that fit my crunchy criteria, looks like I’m going to be making an order. πŸ˜‰ I’d use the gift certificate to try the “latte brunette” shampoo bar, the lip balm (my daughter and I are addicted to natural chap sticks!), and the Chocolate Truffle Jojoba because I’m battling some wicked pregnancy dry skin. Thank you for introducing me to the brand and for the opportunity to win. Hope you are enjoying your trip! πŸ™‚

  4. I’d love to try the Simply Shea shampoo bar. My hair is very dry so the no-poo just won’t do. But finding good products at our health food store are very pricey. It’s a small enough town so there is no competition. This sounds like a great alternative and I can just order and have what I want delivered to me. I still haven’t gotten used to the idea of shopping for everything on line yet. Time to get with it. πŸ™‚

  5. Oh my. I’d definitely do the chai soap, the chocolate jojoba oil, and anything with almond or citrus. Love this giveaway!

  6. IF I won, which would be wonderful, I would try some of their recommendations for my long curly hair, Marshmallow and Aloe OR Latte Brunette.

  7. Oh, it’s so hard to pick! Probably a shampoo bar or two, but don’t ask which kind yet. It will take me at least an hour to decide. πŸ™‚

  8. I currently live overseas and the shampoos here leave my hair horribly dry. I would LOVE to try something natural that could salvage my splitting hair, not to mention that sounds like it smells wonderful.

  9. I have been using the Rassoul and Avocado Shampoo Bar. In the summer we loved the Boundary Waters for keeping mosquitoes away. We used this with their natural bug repellent.

  10. I’m getting ready to start GAPS, so I was looking for a good alternative for my shampoo. I would definitely like to try the jojoba or the shea butter bar.

  11. I have fallen in like with shampoo bars as well. I make my own, but would love some variety in trying out some from Apple Valley.

  12. I’m interested in trying the shampoo bars–Latte Brunette for me and the man shampoo bar for my husband and I’m sure my girls would enjoy trying the lavender buttermilk!

  13. I was disapointed to see you move to Rafflecopter. Maybe it’s just me, but most times, I just don’t “get” exactly what I’m supposed to do to enter contests through them. Am I supposed to comment here? Or on Apple Valley Soap’s website (where?)? Or on their blog (again, where?)?
    Anyway, I’ve been making my own shampoo for a while now and love it. It’s taken me a while to find a recipe that works for us, and it’s a liquid. I’d love to try a bar of the Apple Valley soap–probably one of the citrus scents or the Wild North for both my husband and I to use–for the convenience of having an all-in-one product. (Plus, my liquid shampoo batches always seems to run out when I’m busiest!)

  14. I actually like rafflecopter and feel that they are the most straight forward and easy of the givaway formats to use. I also like that they generate a winner impartially. I enter allot of giveaways and have never felt confused by rafflecopter, some of the other giveaway formats can be more complicated. Thank you for taking the time and effort to run this lovely giveaway! I love all natural soaps.

  40. I have went “natural” in many aspects of my life but I have yet to take on the “no poo” transition, because I have very dry hair and I have been afraid of drying it out even more.

Maybe even get my husband on board with the Man 2.0 Bar!

  41. I would try the Pink Himalayan Salt Bar and the Herbal Immune Body Bar, and get the MAN 2.0 Body, Shampoo and Shaving Bar for my husband.

  66. My oldest hates to use regular shampoo. I have tried the no ‘poo method and while it works I never seem to have it ready when she is getting in the shower. I think the shampoo bars could be the perfect solution.

  67. Wow, I am sold. I have been doing no poo for 4 months now and have changed the vinegar/BS recipes a few times and bought a boar bristle brush and even an expensive shower filter to try to help my hair. It is SO DRY. I think I am going to try some of these bars! Thanks for the recommendation!

  68. I’m already an obsessed regular customer of Apple Valley Natural Soap! But if I won certificate, I want to try that Basil Mint bar and (oh my goodness) the Marsala Chai bar!!!!! Those are new “flavors” since my last purchase. I like to try ALL the shampoo bars personally. But my hubs is purely smitten by Man 2.0. πŸ˜€

  69. My daughter seems to need the gentlest skincare products available. She is only 18 months but her skin is so very sensitive! I’d love to see if these are gentle enough to use on her skin. I think we’d try the sample slices first.

  70. Wow – they have so many awesome bars! I’d love to try their shampoo bars. I’m a chocoholic so the chocolate silk would probably be my first choice, but coconut citrus sounds great, too!!

  71. I found this site today searching for a recipe to make my own powdered sugar. After searching through it more, I’m amazed and in love with the articles and posts! I love the idea of going back to the beginning and start of how to live off the land and ways to live chemical free. Thank you for this site, I look forward to stopping by more often!

  72. I would get a MAN bar for my husband for sure. I haven’t had much luck finding natural, “manly” scented products for him.

  73. I also LOVE Apple Valley Natural Soaps! I’ve tried so many different non-toxic “solutions” over the last eight months looking for something that would keep my sixteen year old son’s hair clean looking and Apple Valley has it!! I’ve also been looking for something that would keep his face clear and Apple Valley does it! ALL IN ONE BAR!! I hope I win one of these gift certificates!

  74. Wow, thanks for exposing me to this wonderful product line. The Basil Mint Shampoo bar sounds amazing, but after browsing the products, they all sound wonderful! I’m excited to try the products out with our family.

  75. Loved the Apple Valley natural Soaps!! I have been switching to natural body/face products out of concern for the zenoestrogens for about 6 months. A great resource. Thanks for sharing!!

  76. I was using baking soda for about a year and loved it, but then after I got a perm (which totally dried out my hair – never again!), the baking soda (even with conditioner) just wasn’t cutting it. I’m excited to try these bars!

  77. I’ve drooled along with you looking that these soaps previous times you’ve touted them. The price is the only thing holding me back, but I’m getting braver buying in bulk (the 12 lbs of coconut in the pantry testifies), so maybe this time I’ll do it! The shampoo bars is especially appealing, since I’ve been wanting to get away from regular shampoo.

  78. Oops I forgot to mention particular products. It is hard to choose. Bella Rose soap, Vanilla Bean lip balm, Argan oil, Himalayan Pink Grapefruit pedi scrub. Thanks for introducing me to these products.

  79. I’ve been noticing my no-poo hair is really dry as well….I’d love to give the lavender buttermilk shampoo bar a try! I might just try a bar or two even if I don’t win…. πŸ™‚

  80. Ok. The masala chai and chocolate truffle scents? Sound DECADENT. Ooh, would I love to get my hands (well, my entire body, actually :)) onto these!

  81. I would LOVE to use some hand salve!! My hands have been soooooo dry with this pregnancy!! I’m always looking for something that would last longer than coconut oil, which my body seems to just soak up!

  82. Oh so many to choose from! I would probably get an Antioxidant Beauty Bar, a Vanilla Sugar Body Polish, and an Organic Herbal Salve.

  83. If I won,I would LOVE to try the Bella Rose shampoo bar! Rose is my favorite scent,and I’ve never tried a shampoo bar before. My hair is so not liking regular shampoo either,so maybe it would help πŸ™‚

  84. I would love to try the shampoo bars. Your description is so enticing! I have a hard time with so many shampoos that dry out my hair. Soft, silky, shiny?? That is what I’m looking for! The hard part will be trying to decide on the fragrance! πŸ™‚ Thank you for the opportunity!!

  85. I would try any of the shampoo bars. I have never tried them and they sound great. I would also try the organic herbal salve.

  86. I would love to win this! I would try the kitchen salt & spice bar, latte, chocolate silk, and coconut milk & citrus shampoo bars, and man 2.0 for DH. πŸ™‚

  87. With the gift certificate I’d try the Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Bean, Masala Chai, Basil Mint, and the Coconut Milk & Citrus. Thanks for a chance to win!

  88. Oh, I love all the goodies I saw… I have always struggled with sensitive skin (and dry) and would love to try the shampoo bars and moisturizers! So refreshing to see all natural, good-for-you products like these… I’d love to try them out!

  89. Would love to try this! I think I’d get a Calendula Castile Bar and probably the Simply Shea and one or two others!!

  90. Lavender Buttermilk Shampoo Bar All natural Lip Balm Organic Herbal Salve all look like really great things to try out. Thanks.

  91. These soaps sound wonderful! I’m actually just on my fourth day of going no-poo! I live in the dry north of the Yukon and I am concerned about my hair getting too dry. I’d love to try the lavender buttermilk soap she has!

  92. I would love to try the shampoo bars…most likely the Chamomile and Orange Blossom first, as I love anything citrus in the shower! I am intriqued with the idea of an all over soap that doesn’t dry out my hair or skin. Also would love to try the Masala Chai – sounds heavenly!

  93. I’d love to try some of the shampoo bars. I’ve just started the “no poo” routine. These sound like a great addition.

  94. Well, I’ve been dying to try some of their products, they just sound soooo yummy. I’d like for my man to try the man 2.0 bar. I’d also enjoy the herbal salve I’m sure.

  95. I would love the basil mint, two of my absolute favorite scents! Yum! Living in Mozambique for many years, I know all about deciding what makes the cut so this must be special for you!

  96. Oooohhhh….I *LOVE* the soaps from Apple Valley…they are just so yummy! πŸ™‚ Hmmm….favourites….tea tree peppermint, green tea & nettles, and now, I am waiting for my order that includes the newest chai bar…can’t wait! πŸ™‚ Thanks for hosting this amazing giveaway!


  97. I would love to win! My son is having skin issues now that he’s shaving. I’ll have to try the Man 2.0 and see how he likes it. Thanks!

  98. I would get some Organic Herbal Salve…my poor baby has super sensitive skin & can’t kick a diaper rash (and we even use cloth!!)

  99. I love Apple Valley Soaps! My favorite is the Green Tea and Nettles. I would order a couple bars of the Masala Chai, as well.

  100. I would get the Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo Bar and the Acne Battle Bar for my daughter and the Jojoba Silk Conditioning Shampoo Bar for myself!

  101. These soaps look amazing! Making the switch to all natural products is something we are in the process of doing, but soap is a hard one for me since I like the squeaky clean feeling. But I’m ready to take the plunge so to speak!

  102. The picture of that Basil Mint actually made me hungry. πŸ™‚ Not sure if that’s a good thing or not, but would love to try it anyway.

  103. These look amazing! I would love to try the Chocolate Truffle jojoba oil!! All of the soaps look fantastic! I would have a hard time choosing!!!

  104. They all look good. I think the bella rose shampoo bar, cocoa butter & vanilla bean bar, and the Himalayan pink grapefruit tea tree pedi-scrub would be what I would choose.

  105. I really want to try the coconut citrus. I went no-poo for over a year but after having a baby, my hair didn’t agree with it anymore.

  106. What a great non-toxic product for my new baby! I already use “natural”/sls free shampoo, but I’m still concerned about some of the ingredients. I think the Chocolate Silk shampoo bar sounds heavenly. πŸ˜€

  107. All of these soaps sound wonderful. I think I’d use the gift certificate on the Himalayan Pink Grapefruit Tea Tree Pedi-Scrub and the Cocoa Butter and Vanilla Bean Face & Body Bar.

    Thanks for the chance!

  108. Oh so many great options! I’m definitely curious about trying a shampoo bar. Coconut milk and citrus sounds like it smells divine!

  109. Oh my goodness I am so glad you blogged about this! I have been desperately trying to find soap/shampoo/lotion alternatives because my skin and scalp have become so itchy and NOTHING has helped. I am trying to get away from as many chemicals as possible and this place looks awesome! I would definitely purchase a couple body bars (the peppermint tea tree and lavender buttermilk sound lovely), probably the acne battle bar, and the creamy butter lotion bar.

  110. We have used their shampoo bars in the past, wonderful scents, makes you want to stay in the shower forever! Would love to try some their other soaps for the kids, maybe the man 2.0 shave, soap and shower, how cool is that?!

  111. I have been wanting to try shampoo bars forever and would love to try the Lavender and Buttermilk Shampoo Bar and the Organic Herbal Salve for my daughter.

  112. I too would like to find a natural alternative to no-poo. I have the same problem with overly dry hair now. I would love to try this and see if it works for me.

  113. I’d love to try the masala chai! I’ve been wanting to try any of their products for a very long time.

  114. Oh, I love Apple Valley Natural Soaps! My absolute favorite is the honey tangerine facial bar. It’s made my skin so, so soft! I also like the shea butter one. I’m already a loyal customer, but I wouldn’t mind a gift certificate! lol

  115. So excited about using something simpler for the whole family! They all sound yummy, but since my preggo nose is super-picky, I’d probably go with the Simply Shea.

  116. I bought Man2.0 for my DH, but it is my favorite scent so far. I can’t change a diaper w/o the healing salve. It really helps to keep any sign of rash away from my baby’s tender bottom.

  117. I’d love to try the Latte Brunette Shampoo Bar for my dry scalp and dark hair. I’m really intrigued by the shampoo bars. I might have to try them!

  118. I tried the no-poo method and it just didn’t work for my oily hair, I would love to give this a try! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  119. I would love to try their body bars – that Masala Chai sounds fabulous, but of course I would probably want to buy everything on their site!

  120. Ooh, I’d love to try some of these bars! I would choose Cocoa Butter and Vanilla Bean Face and Body Bar, a kitchen scrub bar, a Peppermint shampoo bar, and a coconut milk shampoo bar.

  121. I would love the Calendula Castile Body Only Bar, the Simply Shea Shampoo Bar, and the Creamy Butter Lotion Bar.

  122. I’ve been looking for a new solution for my hair, and I would love to try the peppermint and tea tree shampoo bar. My baby girl has horribly dry skin this winter, so I might also need to try the creamy butter lotion bar!

  123. I’d definitely be interested in trying the shampoo bars. I’ve never used one, so I’m curious how it would handle my wavy, crazy hair. πŸ™‚

  124. I’d use it on the Creamy Butter Lotion Bar, Latte Brunette Shampoo Bar, Simply Shea Shampoo Bar, and Marshmallow and Aloe Shampoo Bar. I might get the MAN bar for my husband too.

  125. I wish I could try some shampoo bars, but I’m afraid we have hard water. I’d probably get some body or facial bars. The kitchen bars also look interesting!

  126. I love natural soaps! If I won, I would try the new Basil Mint Shampoo bar and the Man 2.0 for my husband….but the list would go on. I love their combinations!

  127. This looks so great! I’ve been trying everything to find a natural shampoo alternative. Nothing has worked for me! Would love to try this as well!

  128. I’m having a baby, so I’d get the cocoa butter and vanilla bean bar because it sounds amazing and is recommended for babies.

  129. Honestly, I would love to try every single shampoo bar out….all the scents and combinations sound AMAZING. The herbal salve also sounds great. My son has eczema and is allergic to coconut….making it hard to find helpful natural products for him. Sounds like this one could be a good one!

  130. I just ordered a few samples of the Man 2.0 bar for my husband. After chemo, his skin is super sensitive, and I have a feeling this product may be great for him!

  131. If I won the giveaway, I would love to try their masala chai body bar and the wheat and honey almond shampoo bar. In fact, I’ll probably order them anyways! πŸ™‚

  132. I would buy some shampoo bars and try out the MAN 2.0 scent for my husband – he misses his old Irish Spring bars that I no longer want to buy!

  133. this looks very interesting. if i won, i think i would purchase a shampoo bar (basil mint and man smell-i’m there!) and maybe some salve. looks like a great company with great products!

  134. I am currently doing the ‘No Poo Method but would love a different way. I’d love to win a bar to try it out.

  135. I have to agree with you that these shampoo soaps are the best! I use them also and it has made a huge difference in my hair. It is much healthier and fuller! I am so happy with their soaps! Thanks for a chance to win!

  136. Oh my goodness–how to choose!? I’d go for one of the Man 2.0 shampoo, shave bars. I’d like to try a shampoo bar for myself–maybe the chocolate silk.

  137. I would definitely pick up some of the shampoo bars, probably the peppermint tea tree and the Man 2.0. And the body oils sound great too!

  138. I love natural body care products & can’t wait to try the shampoo bars. The no poo method dried my hair too much as well. This sounds like a good alternative!

  139. Definitely the shampoo bars (I used baking soda and ACV on my hair right now, and while it works fine…it’d be nice for a more nicely scented change!). Both the Wheat and Honey and the Lavender Buttermilk sound lovely.

  140. I think I’d try a Latte Brunette shampoo bars – and a different kind for my girls with long hair!
    Thanks for a chance to win!

  141. I would probably spend the gift certificate on the Lavender Buttermilk shampoo bars. I use them now and absolutely LOVE the way it makes my hair feel! Plus the smell is amazing.

  142. I would buy the Lime Spa Salt Bar and the Chamomile and Orange Blossom shampoo Bar. I would also like to try the Chocolate Silk Shampoo Bar.

  143. Apple Valley Soaps are wonderful! I like to stock up for simple Christmas gifts. For myself, I’d like to try the facial bar of soap.

  144. I like the idea of one bar to wash my body and face and hair. I recently started the no ‘poo method, but think my hair needs something more.

  145. Just used the coupon code and ordered some shampoo bars. They got here so fast and she even hand signed my receipt. Very happy so far. Hope to win the gift certificate to buy more! Thank You!

  146. Your post about the shampoo bars caught my eye! I have been on the lookout for a natural solution for a while. I’m too oily for no poo (tried it for 2 months looking awful the whole time!) and I soon realized the lush bars I loved are still full of yucky chemicals. I hope I can try these soon!

  147. I would buy a combo of stuff to try, but for sure the pink himalayan salt bar, wheat and honey almond shampoo bar, and the peppermint tea tree shampoo bar.

  148. Since changing over to all natural beauty products, I haven’t found a shampoo that works for me. I would love to find a shampoo bar that doesn’t irritate my scalp. Fingers are crossed!

  149. I would get the shampoo bars first, then body bars, face bars, and moisturizers ..Thanks for sharing this great site…am trying to go more green.

  150. I would definitely try the Grapefruit Peppermint Luffa body bar, Honey Carrot and Tagerine, get the Man 2.0 for my hubby, and the Coconut Milk and Citrus shampoo bar for me!

  151. I definitely would use it on shampoo bars. I’ve tried “natural” drugstore shampoos, and none of them have met expectations. Shampoo bars have been next on my list! I especially think the Jojoba Silk Conditioning Shampoo Bar and the Simply Shea Shampoo Bar.

  152. I would definitely like to try Chamomile and Orange Blossom, Coconut Milk and Citrus, Honey and Hops, and either Man bar. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  153. I have been searching for an all natural shampoo to use.. I would really like to try these shampoo bars!
    The scents alone are so inviting!

  154. They look so good! Like almost want to eat them, which I wouldn’t but I certainly would love to lather one of them up clean myself with it!

  155. Looking to try new products and ways to wash the many types of hair in my family. The mint basil or chai sounds good.

  156. I’d probably get some of those lovely sounding body bars and share with my MIL, whose birthday is next month. πŸ™‚

  157. Your video is wonderful! Thank you for sharing! I would love to try any of your products! I’ve been really working to “make the switch” to all natural, organic, homemade (when possible) bath and body products, and I would love to sample anything from your store. Thank you for the opportunity!

  158. I’m just hearing about Apple Valley Natural Soap for the first time! I would spend a gc on soaps and lip balm. I need to try a shampoo bar too! Everything looks wonderful! So glad a friend posted about this on Facebook.

  159. I would love to get away from all the chemicals in soap, shampoo and food. Not to mention home cleaners. This sounds like a great place to start. I would love to win! And as you can tell I like to talk alot and would surely pass on the results. Word of mouth is the best advertising.

  160. I LOVE shampoo bars and my previous handmade soap company has discontinued theirs. I would try the Man 2.0 for hubby (who refuses to give up his bottle of hair/face/body wash) and the Jojoba Conditioning Bar for my daughter’s fine, silky, staticky hair! Also, having the hard lotion in a roll-up stick is sheer GENIUS!

  161. I want that man bar. I’ve been having a hard time switching my hubby to natural products, and something that would take care of everything for him would be perfect!!

  162. I’d get the Man 2.0 bar for my guy. His birthday’s around the corner! I haven’t heard of this company before and it’s been years since I’ve tried a shampoo bar but your whole write-up is rather convincing. πŸ™‚

  163. I would love to smell all of them in person! I’ve never tried a shampoo bar so I’d love to try that. The Chamomile and Orange Blossom bar would be my pick!

  164. Ohhhh! I would try the Himalayan Pink Grapefruit Tea Tree Pedi-Scrub for $10, the All Natural Lip Balm for $4, and a few of the Sample Size for Shampoos for $2 each if I won the $25 gift certificate to Apple Valley Natural Soap! πŸ™‚

  165. I’m looking to make the switch to an all-natural shampoo/soap for my family and this would be a great way to try one out!

  166. They all sound so good! I think we would try the chai soap or the man 2.0 so that I could get my hubby to use a natural product on his skin and ditch the chemicals!
