I was really excited because Güd products are by the makers of Burt's Bees, and I've always been impressed by the quality.  When I heard of the Orange Petalooza scent, I knew I had to try it.  Blood Oranges and Hyacinth.  Yes, please!  (and do blood oranges now totally make anyone else think of Dexter?)... orange/citrus is such a happy, and uplifting scent.  It's light and fruity for Summer, but also a pick me up for the bleak days of Winter!
There are several other scents in the Güd product line and each include the body butter, body mist, hand cream, and more (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand wash...a full line in each captivating scent).  Products boast of no parabens, phthalates or petrochemicals.  Also, no animal testing, as one would expect from Burt's Bees.
I love how HAPPY this brand only is there a smile in the name Güd, the packaging is fresh, bright, colorful, and just...happy! 

I loved the light citrus scent of Orange Petalooza line, but I couldn't really give a rave review to anything but the Natural Body Butter.  It's a bit runny for a body butter, but just thick enough.  It's super moisturzing and I really enjoyed using it.  It's great for elbows, knees, and heels.  I also tend to have super dry legs, so when I apply to my heels and knees, I rub the excess into my legs.  It feels so nice for parched skin.
 Other Güd scents include:
  • Red Ruby Groovy
  • Pearanormal Activity
  • Floral Cherrynova
  • Vanilla Flame
I bet it would be awesome to use a combination of the Floral Cherrynova line and the Vanilla Flame line at the same time.  I love Cherry-Vanilla!  :)
