If there’s one thing I love about being a millennial it’s the insurgence of “shopping small” and supporting local businesses. More times than not, these small batch products are exceptionally better quality than the mass produced counterparts. The only bad thing, sometimes the small label products you find on a whim of a random trip to another state are horribly difficult to find on the internet. Little Matey’s is one of those brands.
Hand made in Newport, RI, Little Matey’s creates all organic products for your skin. From Shea butter lotion to sugary body scrubs they have all things to give you the smoothest skin possible. And with my annual beach vacations coming up I figured it was time to exfoliate my skin and drive some new life into it before it’s bared for the sun and sand. Similar to my previous body scrubs I’ve used, this one smoothens skin while blasting cellulite. While each scrub has a different balance of exfoliator and oils and lotions, I love that this one is high on soothing oils and minimal on the lotion. It helps to give me a little extra summer sheen!
Now, while you may not be able to find this exact product or be able to adventure to a craft fair in Rhode Island you should check out your local vendors. See what small business minded women are cooking up in their homes; you might be surprised by what you find when you shop small!
Do you shop local small businesses? What’s your favorite locally owned business in your neighborhood? Seriously, I want to check out more local businesses and travel to visit cool creatives so give me ideas!
