I love to treat myself. Too often I am busy, busy running around and burning the candle at both ends so when I get the chance to do something for myself I try and do it. When I was contacted by Sugar N Sass Designs to check out their line of candles and soaps I jumped at the chance. I just love the way a great scent can create an escape.
Sugar N Sass Designs were a new company to me so I did a little research before the products arrived. The owner, a lovely woman named Kara, created the her business after learning her son had autism. With his diagnosis, Kara found that she became a "label reader" (I am too!!) to learn what kinds of things her family was putting in their body or ingesting. This label reading led her to discover that often times there are some pretty scary things being eaten, breathed in or put upon our bodies. Hence Sugar N Sass Designs. At Sugar N Sass Designs you will find that you can pronounce and recognize all the ingredients and that they are wholesome, all natural and good for our bodies and the environment. Right off the bat I loved the company. I love a mom business owner and I really love one that has the same goals of health and wellness that I do!
I was sent two products....a candle and a bar of soap. Let's talk about the candle first. Like I mentioned earlier, I love how a great scent can really transport you. I like to have one burning most of the time and I find that a scent can help boost my mind or spirit when I need it. Spruceberry was the scent I was sent. Here is the scoop...
Bring home the fragrance of the holidays with our Spruceberry soy candle! Made from 100% soy wax, this clean burning candle offers a delightful blend of spruce, raspberries, cranberries… the perfect mix of woodsy and sweet. The 4 oz tin makes the candle a perfect addition to any decor and with proper candle care you will get 15-20 hours of burn time.
I love this candle. Obviously I like that it is burning 100% natural ingredients so I know we are not breathing in any nasty chemicals. What I love just as much though is the crisp, unique scent that fills my home every time I light it. The combination of scents is really lovely and not one bit overpowering. When this one is gone I will be ordering another for sure. I will order this scent but I also want to try some of the other offerings like Lemon Pound Cake and Holiday Sparkle.
In addition to the candle I was also sent Orange Olive Oil Soap. Here is the scoop...
A cleansing, lathering soap that will invigorate you with the refreshing, sweet scent of orange. This soap contains coconut oil, which helps provide lather, and olive oil and shea butter, which help provide moisture.
This soap became a quick favorite for me. I find the orange scent to be really great and energizing (a perfect way to start the day) and while it cleanses it also leaves my skin soft and not a bit dried out which tends to be a big problem for me this time of year. The icing on the cake? The bar is only $7 making it super affordable. As with the candle, I will be ordering another for sure when this runs out but might also try some of the other scents like apricot or coffee.
