- fabulous scentsy review and giveaway -


 I was recently offered a chance to review some fabulous products from Ashley, who sells Scentsy products. If you haven't heard of Scentsy yet, you are definitely missing out!

Scentsy Candle Products are a safe alternative to scented candles! Scentsy Warmers melt and warm the wax releasing the fragrance into the air which means – NO BURNING. This makes your home safer for you, your family and pets. Scentsy Warmers never get too hot to pose the threat of fire. The Warmers are safe to have around children and pets!

I have been wanting to try their products for some time now, and just never got around to placing an order through a Scentsy rep. When Ashley approached me and asked me to do a review, I was honored and super excited!

Ashley sent me the Full-Size Angora Warmer, and three different Scentsy Fragrance Bars to use in my warmer...



The first thing that impressed me was the amount of care that Scentsy put into their packaging. The Scentsy bars are made of wax, and they are shipped in a freezer bag with ice packs, specially made to keep the bars cool and prevent melting. All of my products came intact, and in perfect shape!

Everything about Scentsy products are straight forward and easy to use. I unwrapped the warmer, screwed in the warming light bulb, placed a fragrance bar in the warmer, and plugged it in.


Within a minute or two, I began to smell the fragrance. It was strong enough to be noticeable, but not too overwhelming. The scents I had were from their Spa Collection and they definitely were pleasant. I kept it plugged in for over two hours, and I never noticed the smell disappearing. I like that about a fragrance unit. I can't tell you the number of times I have used scented candles, or Glade Plug Ins and find the scent is pretty much gone within 30 minutes!

Overall, I was extremely satisfied with my first experience with Scentsy. I would definitely recommend Scentsy to anyone! Well worth the money! Of the three fragrances I tried, I would have to say "Be Still" was hands down my favorite one! I am really excited to try out more fragrances in the future and I will definitely be ordering more. With Fall quickly approaching, I am so excited to order some fragrances from their Fall and Winter Collection. Nothing sounds more inviting than making my home smell like Honey Pear Cider, Frosted Ginger Cookie, or oh my gosh....wait for it...Caramel Pear Crisp!

Overall, I would say the only challenging thing about ordering Scentsy products is having to pick out the fragrance by simply reading the description of it online. It is a little challenging to imagine what each fragrance will smell like. However, I am sure once I get more familiar with their different fragrances, I will quickly figure out which ones are my personal favorites!

Thank you so much Ashley, for allowing me to review Scentsy! And there's more! Ashley would like to give one of my lucky readers a $25 gift certificate to use on her Scentsy Website so that you too can try out Scentsy!

This is such a great giveaway Kyna! I am actually using my Scentsy right now to get rid of the water leak smell in our kitchen! I will probably need to order more by the time the maintenance people get around to fixing it!
