Etsy Shop Review: For Goodness Grape

Welcome to ForGoodnessGrape the Etsy shop where you'll find ALL YOU NEED TO LOOK & FEEL GRAPE!

Before I made my purchase with this shop, I had been wanting to order SO many things and I had a hard time narrowing it down to even just the things I ordered. Although one thing I really wish I had ordered from her shop was her lip candy (which I am really eyeing at the moment, but am going to have to wait because I have already splurged this month :D)

Okay, enough of my wants and wishes...on to the amazing review I have for you guys!

What I Ordered:
Let me explain how I ordered these first. I made my purchase during the Christmas in July event  so she had tons of awesome specials going on. She only had one of the perfume stix sales up, so I contacted her about listing another and by the end of the day it was up, fantastic!
Here are the scents of the perfume stix I ordered:
1) Soapy Clean
2) Citrus Explosion
3) Pin-Up Girl
4) Doni
5) Plumeria
6) Butt Naked
Each perfume stick costs $6.25 normally, but I got great deal on them during her Christmas in July event.

Customer Service
I must say her customer service was fantastic! She responded so quickly to all of my questions and listed the listing I asked for at lightning-speed. All of her responses were so nice and caring and I really could tell she cared about her customers.

Shipping time was the area that disappointed me the most out of this whole order, but would definitely not deter me from ordering from her again (her products are fabulous). Now, let me make something clear, she does make it very clear that shipping will take 7-10 to ensure freshness. I am not complaining about the time, more just letting you guys know that she makes you wait to enjoy her fantastic products :D But the products are totally worth the wait! I ordered my products on July 8 and received them on July 28.

The quality of these products is unbelievable and I am in love with them. My favorite scent: Plumeria, lasts forever and smells divine. The solid perfume is very smooth and creamy and glides on very easy. The scents as I said above last the longest amount of time I have ever seen from a solid perfume. While they don't last all day long it is so easy to just to pop one in your purse or pocket and re-apply partway through the day.

1) Soapy Clean- this scent really does smell like a soapy clean. To me it reminds me of the smell of the little soaps you get when you stay at hotels, very clean!
2) Citrus Explosion- I am a big fan of the Satsuma scent and was hoping this would stand up to that scent. I must say it doesn't smell much like Satsuma but it does smell very citrusy and fruity with a hint of sweetness in it.
3)Pin-Up Girl- this one is really hard to explain but I really do like it, I would explain it as fruity and fresh with a hint of sophistication in it. I don't wear it as an everyday scent but it is great for going out and parties.
4) Doni- I would have to say this one is probably my least favorite scent, to me it smells like a store where they burn the incense sticks. It does smell really good but it is not really my kind of scent.
5) Plumeria- THIS IS MY FAVORITE ONE!! I love the scent of this one, it is so fresh with a hint of floral to it. I have been wearing this almost everyday since I have gotten it and haven't even made a dent into it.
6) Butt Naked- this scent is very sweet and reminds me of bubblegum and cotton candy (don't quote me on those, I am not the best at determining scents) but it is fruity and sweet all at the same time, awesome! 

All of my products arrived in a padded envelope and were cutely wrapped in a little plastic bag (business card included) and tied with pretty ribbon. It all arrived in perfect condition and I was very impressed with the packaging.

Overall I am so impressed with For Goodness Grape, the products are top quality and last a super long time. Shipping, while it did take a bit, was fairly priced and honestly (even though it does take longer than ordering jewelry) is reasonable because she makes each of your items fresh and just for you.
 Go check out her shop right now and order and boatload, you won't regret it!
 Hopefully sometime soon I will order some of her fantastic lip candy and will also provide you guys with a review on those, which I am sure are going to be fantastic!!


  1. First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a tough
    time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?

    Feel free to surf to my webpage: Incense sticks manufacturer

  2. Thank you so much for your comment! I know exactly how you feel on coming up with ideas. Generally what I do is spend a few minutes a week 10-30 mins just brainstorming articles. Then hopefully the next time I sit down to write a post I have a couple of ideas to draw from. I hope this helps and best of luck with writing!!
