OUR FIRST GIVEAWAY - Simply Pure Soy Candles!

I first heard about this company through a giveaway on another blog - I seem to come across quite a few each day and every once in a while I find myself *needing* to try out their products. This was just that company. Simply Pure Soy Candles caught my eye right away, based *simply* on the fact that they are made with all natural ingredients. So, I checked out the website (to get more entries for the giveaway - which no, I didn't win) and was hooked. First I was thrilled with the prices (always important, particularly when canadian and purchasing in USD) and secondly I LOVED their selection, both product and scent. I had such a difficult time deciding but finally ended up with a Fresh Cucumber Intense Moisturizing Stick, 6 Soy Tarts, and a Strawberry Soap Slice - among a few others items (I told you, I had a difficult time deciding). Can I just say - I will be purchasing all of these items again and again.
First of all, the Intense Moisturizing Stick- I have been wanting to get vitamin E or something similar to use on my face instead of the *gasp* hand and body lotion I've been using (I know, my makeup artist friends are horrified to say the least). So when I saw this I knew I had to have it. I had also seen a customer's review on their website stating it actually cleared up her child's eczema (although it's not advertised for this purpose), which was definitely encouraging and intriguing to me. I've been using this on my face for about 3 weeks now and LOVE it....in fact, I actually get excited after my shower to put it on. I always put it on first, before lotioning my body so I don't *contaminate* it with the lotion. *lol* I have Fresh Cucumber, and although it's not my favorite scent I'm still loving it and the way my face feels after - and for the whole day (I no longer get dry patches). I do look forward though to trying some of the others - there are 24 in total - but considering this is a product I will have ALL the time, I'm sure I'll get to try them all out. Although, to be honest - even at the rate I'm using it (at least once, sometimes twice a day), it still looks like it's going to last me the better part of the year (and for just $6!!!). In addition - while recently on holidays I noticed the back of my son's knee had a nasty patch of eczema (thanks to my husband for passing that on). He had been scratching it and it was starting to bleed and scab...so for two nights after bath (so his skin was clean) I covered the spot with this moisturizer and honestly - it cleared up, with only faint remnants of it remaining. I cannot say enough about this product! I LOVE it!

The Soy tarts were something I wanted to try because they are so cute and affordable (only $0.95 each!!), and it's nice to have a few other options for my warmer. I got about 6 different scents out of the 53 they have (now THAT was a difficult choice) and so far have tried 2 - Aloha Pineapple and Sex on the Beach. It is so fun to me to have these scents filtering through the house - the Aloha Pineapple filled the house immediately and gave me the lovely illusion of being on holidays. I love the smell of pineapple and am already planning to stock up on this scent. Sex on the Beach is equally as delicious, but not as strong a smell, which is nice for it's own reasons. It is one I would move into a smaller area (bathroom or bedroom perhaps) as opposed to the kitchen where I have it currently. I just might have to get warmers for every room in the house so I can walk from scent to scent!
And the Strawberry Soap Slice - Oh.My.Word. Divine....with real seeds and the most delicious strawberry scent (like their strawberry body scrub I have that smells good enough to eat). I couldn't wait to try this one in the shower and it was even better than I imagined. Yes, a bit pricier than your typical soap - but the difference is amazing. I even used it as a substitute for shaving cream and it left my legs feeling softer than normal. It was awesome...no dry or soap shave rash for me. I can't wait to try some of the other soaps- they currently have 11 to choose from....ahhh the decisions.

So here's the deal. They are offering one lucky winner a most delicious Cool Citrus Basil Jar Candle (I have the Birthday Cake one and it is DIVINE). Ideally we'd like you to visit their website to enter, and we still want you to - their products are sooo awesome and so affordable - but we realize we all have limited time. So we're trying to make it as easy on you as possible, and if you want you can check out their website (highly recommended) for additional entries.

Oh and - use coupon code july to receive 15% off your order! Who doesn't love that - I may be taking this opportunity to stock up early :) **don't fret about shipping prices if you are Canadian - I was so impressed with how reasonable it was (I think it was $6 for my $25 order - of course it depends on the weight and size of your items so keep that in mind)**
