Today, I bring you what I believe will be the final review/giveaway as part of the Holiday Gift Guide (though I do have a few more great reviews/giveaways coming up not part of the list!). And what a better way to end this event than with Scentsy from our wonderful sponsor, Ashley Miles, Independent Scentsy Director.
If you've followed my blog long, you've likely heard all about my Scentsy obsession...I LOVE IT! I have warmers all over my house (at least one for each room), and a fridge stocked full of bars. If you haven't heard of Scentsy, first of all...where have you been? Seriously, you don't know what you're missing. Here is a bit of information about our sponsor and Scentsy from Ashley herself:
Hi everyone, my name is Ashley Miles and I'm a Scentsy Independent Director. I live in Anderson, SC with my wonderful husband, Jeff, and our three beautiful daughters, Erica, Mackenzie & Reece. My family is my world and I am so blessed to have them.
I was first introduced to Scentsy in March 2009. My friend hosted a home party and I attended. As soon as I learned about the products and how they worked, I was hooked. I bought a warmer for myself, my Mom and my Mother-In-Law. Not only is Scentsy safer than a traditional candle, it's simple and easy to use. I love coming home everyday and walking into a great smelling house, because with Scentsy I don't have to worry about turning it off every time I leave the house. I wouldn't be able to walk into a great smelling house if I were still using a traditional candle. I love being able to change scents so quickly and easily. Because I love this product so much, I decided in January 2010 to become a consultant. I love introducing this product to family and friends that aren't familiar with it yet, because they too see how safe & simple Scentsy is.

My very first home show was a huge success...people love the great selection of warmers & scents. I already have a great customer base that has been very supportive of my new venture, and I know you can have the same too!

Scentsy Electric Candles are ceramic candle warmers that use a low-wattage light bulb to heat and melt our highly-scented long-lasting Scentsy Wax. Simply plug in your candle warmer, turn it on, and place a cube of your favorite Scentsy wax scent inside the warmer dish top. In minutes you will be enjoying one of over 80 scentsational scents. With over 70 full-size warmers, 17 mid-size warmers, and 20 plug-ins (night light style), there is surely a Scentsy Candle Warmer design to fit all your home decorating styles and preferences. Scentsy Wickless Candles are the best selling candles that you will surely love.
Scentsy Wax Bars are made of a custom, food-grade paraffin wax blend with non-essential oils. This wax blend is designed for a specific scent-load and meltpoint. Scentsy bars in Scentsy electric warmers melt at 125-degrees Fahrenheit when used with the correct bulbs (25-watt for Full-size Warmers, 20-watt for Mid-size Warmers, and 15-watt for Plug-In Warmers). This temperature is typical of a paraffin cosmetic dip, therefore Scentsy wax will not burn you if touched. Each Scentsy wax bars lasts approximately 80-110 hours, and each wax bar comes in 8 break-apart sections.
Because Scentsy Candles are wickless, there is no smoke, no soot, no flame. Scentsy Candle Warmers are safe for you and your family, add a beautiful decorative touch and make wonderful night lights as well.

To show that Scentsy is no longer just the bars we all know and love, and to show the numerous gifting options available, Ashley sent me a a body wash, body spray and hand cream in a few different scents from the Layers collection for this review.
Body Wash: I received the Body Wash in Sunkissed Citrus. This was one of the very first scents I fell in love with from Scentsy, and remains one of my favorites still! I'm not great at describing scents, so I won't attempt to try, but it's absolutely heavenly...and if you've smelled the bar of the same scent, the body wash smells just the same. One of the things I loved most about this, was that after my shower, my upstairs smelled like Sunkissed Citrus for a good hour or so, a nice added bonus! I have to say, I have found with most scented body washes I have tried, I really can't smell it on myself after. That was not the case with the Scentsy Layers! It was not an overwhelming scent, but definitely still there, which makes it great in my book!
Body Spray: For the spray, I received Be Still. This is a scent I really love for my bathrooms and thought would make a good scent for Layers as well. It's very calming, and just a nice spa-like scent. I really liked this one as well, though I did end up liking it better as a bar than as a body spray for myself personally. The great thing about this spray was that a little bit goes a long way. A couple of sprays and I could smell it for the rest of the day! I was really pleasantly surprised at how long the scent lasted. (Of course, I should have expected nothing less from such an awesome company, right?)
Hand Cream: Finally, I received the hand cream in Lucky In Love.This is another scent that I have been in love with since discovering Scentsy, because it smells exactly like Love Spell from Victoria's Secret, one of my all-time favorite perfumes! I was thrilled when I saw that they'd made it in the Layers line as well. You might be wondering- why not just buy the VS version? Well, because the Scentsy price is much better!! For example, the body sprays are only $8, whereas from Victoria's Secret, you're paying $12!! And with a party you can get them even cheaper or even free. I love a bargain, so this is great to me!! And the hand cream itself is pretty awesome too! It made my hands nice and soft, smelling great and weren't greasy as some hand lotions tend to be.
Overall, I loved everything! These wonderful products certainly lived up to the Scentsy name in my book!!
Want to buy some Scentsy Layers (or a warmer and bars!)...head on over to Ashley's site to place your orders!
Disclosure: I received the mentioned products for free in exchange for this honest review, all thoughts are 100% my own.
