How I feel about Scentsy & a Giveaway! :)

I've heard a lot about Scentsy from other blogs. I've seen it, I always thought, "hm, looks great"--but never brought myself to actually purchase any products. Nor had I ever had the opportunity to attend a Scentsy party (or I'd have totally been there to see what all the hype was about).

But a few weeks ago a friend I worked with teaching contacted me about reviewing some Scentsy products for her mothers business. I was really excited and jumped at the chance to test out the ever-so-popular Scentsy and get those delectable scents in my home. 

Within a few days, Jennise sat on my living room floor with me, scents strewn about, warmers of all sizes and shapes laid out--letting me pick basically anything I wanted to test drive. I felt like a kid in a candy store!

I ended up with a gorgeous full-size warmer, four different fragrances, a plug-in warmer, a few travel tins, a scent-pack (for drawers), and even a few scent circles (to hang in the car). 



And after spending the last few weeks testing out all these fun little products?

I'm.in.love.

My house has never smelled so good. My kid has even dipped her finger in the wax, but it doesn't get hot enough to hurt her, at all. Since there's no wick/flame, you don't have to worry about that danger aspect with children. They glow a beautiful little light, can be left on for long periods of time (much more than a candle!), and the fragrances? They last FOREVER. 


I put the little plug-in on our lower level/first floor. It works awesome and upon entering my house you're greeted with a really pretty smell, rather than the smell of laundry left in the washer for too long (guilty). Wet dog. Or a basket full of smelly shoes. 

I even used the travel-tin in Emeline's room just to cover up the diaper-funk-smell that kind of lingers no matter WHAT YOU DO and it has truly helped. In fact, I may get one of their cute little nursery mid-size warmers for her new big girl room.

So the gist of Scentsy is this---it's great. I've been telling people I know how awesome it is. How great it smells. How fun and simple it is to use. And how much longer-lasting than candles. Oh, and affordable, too.

If you need a place to purchase Scentsy, consider my new friend & Independent Scentsy Rep, Jennise. You can order easily online right here

***

ONE LAST THING! (I'm like an info-mercial)

Jennise wants to give my readers a chance to win a full-size warmer ($35 value) and a Scentsy Tin ($7 value).  So if you want to enter, you need to be a follower/reader of this blog, and all you need to do is GO HERE & tell me which full-size warmer you would choose if you win and leave it in the comments section of this post.

Giveaway entries will be accepted until Friday, April 27th at 9pm EST.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Too many choices, I cannot decide. Which is why I still haven't tried SCENTSY a couple years after first hearing about them.

    I think that I would choose English Ivy though since it would compliment the accessories already in my kitchen.

    ReplyDelete

  42. I love scentsy! I have two warmers going all the time in my house. Anything that helps cover up the dog/toddler smell is fantastic in my book. I like the English Ivy one on the page you linked to.

    ReplyDelete

  45. I love the Moroccan warmer... very pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'd like the satin black full-size :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I feel like we're the same person sometimes. I too have heard about it forever and just jumped on the bandwagon like a month ago. I do love the idea of it, however I disagree with two things. I don't like either of the scents I tried...what did you get that you like? And, the wax totally burnt my kid (guilty). Kirsten grabbed at the wall plugged in one (same one you pictured, haha), and it spilled all over her hand and burned/scared her. She was fine but it hurt...

    But, I'd love to win a second full size one for my classroom! I'd get the teachery/kid one or maybe the zebra one.

    ReplyDelete

  91. I now have a Scentsy warmer, but I've yet to find any scents that I really LOVE. I don't know anyone locally who does Scentsy, so it's just trial and error for me. Also, SUPER excited about the new Velata Chocolate line that's about to launch!

    If I won, I'd beg them to let me pay the difference and get the Loom warmer!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I love the capri! So cute and would go perfect with my room. Camu Camu is my FAV scent and I love the sugar spray for my car!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  94. I really like the one you picked but I also love the Roma and Morocco ones too!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I would choose the ANGORA warmer because that's the one I used to have that C accidentally broke in our last move. I don't know if they still have the scent-satin sheets- but that used to be my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I'm like you; I've never been to a party or gotten a chance to see what all the hype was about. Now that I've been on the website? Holy cow, how am I supposed to pick a favorite?? Right now, it's between the Lisbon or the Cemental. They're so pretty!

    ReplyDelete

    I like the bridal warmer!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Omgah...I hardly ever come out of my Google Reader world so I forgot (or didn't know) how popular your blog is. I was so excited hoping I might win and now my chances aren't looking as good--haha!

    Anyway, I think I'd choose the Lisbon one.
