Hi all and happy Monday! Thanks so much for your great understanding in the skip of inspiration and content last week! Event Crashers readers are the best! We’re starting off this Monday, and the LAST day of September (can you believe it?!) with an awesome giveaway from an awesome company!
Makes Scents Natural Spa Line was created in 2010 by Lancaster, Pa. natives Heather and Nathan Kreider. They carefully create their products in small batches to keep the same quality and consistency throughout the line. Makes Scents products are created with natural exfoliants, colorants and scents and are packaged in eco-friendly, recyclable packaging. They offer a variety of products from shampoo and conditioner to body scrub and body butter. The scents available are sure to please anyone!
I learned of this company and product line when I first entered a giveaway from SaraBozich.com. As the lucky winner I received a set including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lip balm (pink grapefruit), body butter and body scrub (both citrus grove). At first I was apprehensive to try the products simply because I’m not a huge grapefruit and citrus type person. I’m so happy I got over it! The shampoo and conditioner have a great scent and left my hair feeling great and nice and shiny – something that’s definitely important when a hair style has to last through my extra long work days. I was extremely surprised by the combining effects of the body scrub and body butter together. I’ll admit, my CrossFit workouts leave my hands really rough and dry, and these products helps to eliminate the roughness and left them pretty soft without the greasy and oily feel that some other products leave behind.
With the fall season comes the ever favorite pumpkin flavoring – and the Makes Scents team put together a winning combination in their body butter and body scrub in Pumpkin Mousse and Pumpkin Sorbet. New this year (and we’re talking brand-spankin’ new!) is an eco-soy candle in Pumpkin Spice. Seriously, what could be better?
Makes Scents products are available at spa’s across the United States, including Spa Chateau at Chateau On The Lake, The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg and The Spa at the Hotel Hershey. In fact, starting in October (and going through November) you can indulge in a full pumpkin spa experience at the Spa at The Hotel Hershey. What a way to celebrate fall!
If a full spa day isn’t in your schedule (or budget), pick up some of the Makes Scents products and create your own day! These products would make a great addition to any bachelorette party sleepover or in a gift basket for the bride or mommy to be. Even better – the Makes Scents team is offering one lucky Event Crashers reader the opportunity to take home their own pumpkin gift basket complete with the Pumpkin Sorbet Body Scrub, Pumpkin Mousse Body Butter and Pumpkin Spice Eco-Soy Candle. Enter using the Rafflecopter widget below, and a winner will be selected on Saturday!
