Scentsy Review and Giveaway

Scentsy has been around for a few years now, but I had never tried the products or even been to a party. I believe if I was introduced to Scentsy years ago I would have been buying it and maybe even selling Scentsy by now. Finally I got my chance when Hannah Vick, a Scentsy Consultant, contacted me about reviewing some of their bars and warmers. I was excited but a little reluctant because I have children, and children around hot wax do not mix. When Mrs.Vick brought over the products and explained some things I felt more at ease to do this review.

Q: Is the hot wax safe around children?
A:Scentsy Bars in Scentsy warmers melt at 125 degrees Fahrenheit – the temperature of a typical paraffin cosmetic dip. It can be hot but it should not burn.

Q: What is a warmer?
A: The Scentsy candle warmer has no wick, uses no flame, and produces no soot. Instead of a flame, it uses a light bulb to slowly melt scented wax bars to maximize fragrance time. The warmers are made from high-quality porcelain or ceramic and come in a variety of styles and sizes to fit any d├ęcor. All warmers are guaranteed for life against defects. Sizes include Full-Size, Mid-Size, and Plug-In.

Q: What is a Scentsy Bar and where is it made?
A: Scentsy uses a custom, food-grade paraffin wax blend selected for its superior scent loading capability, melting point and firmness. The Scentsy wickless candle bars are small blocks of scented wax that come in eight break-apart sections. All Scentsy wax is manufactured at Scentsy’s headquarters in Meridian, Idaho, USA and in France.

Q: What makes being a Scentsy Consultant so great?
A: With Scentsy, you have the freedom to set your own hours and the flexibility to determine your own goals, allowing you to expand the boundaries of how much you can earn. Whether you simply want to share Scentsy products with your family and friends or wish to build a successful team—you choose the path that’s right for you.

I was given four different scents to try with a full-size warmer and a plug-in warmer. I choose Cinnamon Bear, Silver Bells, Blueberry Cheesecake and Clean Breeze. I was so impressed and wished I would have been introduced to Scentsy years ago! I used the plug-in first in my bathroom, the aroma of Silver Bells filled the air in my bathroom, into my bedroom, down the hall and into my dining room. I absolutely love the scent of Silver Bells, it has a minty smell with a little bit of a sugary, caramel mixed in. I can say it is my favorite. I also tried the Blueberry Cheesecake in the large warmer in my bedroom. It literally smelled like a blueberry cheesecake, it made me a little hungry a few times! This scent was much stronger and it actually filled my entire house with it's aroma. The last one I tried was Cinnamon Bear, this is a very, very strong scent. It reminded me of Red Hots, but in a good way. I love the smell of cinnamon in the winter months so this was the perfect time to try it. I couldn't try the Clean Breeze, my mom is allergic to some perfume smells.
Scentsy offers a wide variety of warmers, plug-ins, bars, bricks, Scentsy Buddies, solid perfumes, and room sprays just to name a few. To get the full effect of what Scentsy has to offer I highly recommend visiting Hannah Vick's Scentsy Website to look around, find something you like and give it a try! Scentsy uses only high quality oils in the bars and bricks, therefor their scents last longer than the other guys. Not to name any names, but one store tries to sell bars that are nothing like Scentsy! Oh and a Scentsy bar lasts 120 hours only costs $5 and that's much longer and better than a medium jar candle!
I really enjoyed using Scentsy. I look forward to trying new scents and even holding a online party at some point. If you are interested in purchasing Scentsy, hosting a party or becoming a consultant please visit Hannah Vick's Scentsy Website. If you are serious about selling Scentsy you can contact Hannah Vick through her website, she will discuss all the benefits of selling Scentsy with you.

Mrs. Vick has graciously offered $25 worth of product with free shipping! All details of that transaction will be sent in an email to the winner.
