Claire Essentials! ~Giveaway!

poster-2016-newYou know, there’s one big problem with this whole reviewing business! It’s called…..falling in love with products that you’re not sure you’ll be able to live without! And when you get to meet stay-at-home-Mom’s who are creating fabulous bath and body products at home, all while raising two little ones, well, they have my appreciation and admiration!

The Mom I get to tell you about today is Claire. She’s originally from across the seas but, lucky for us, her family moved here a number of years ago and are happily farming in Canada! And then she married a local boy and is quite content to call Canada home! But then she had dsc_0024-2two kids, a boy and a girl, and they’re both still little! But apparently Claire likes to keep herself busy (I’m trying hard not to call her crazy! Haha! But then that might be the pot calling the kettle black as it seems I’m kind of busy some days too!) as she’s created this fabulous little business called Claire Essentials! So now, whenever those littles are sleeping, Claire is busy creating beautiful products for us!

I was lucky enough to be able to meet up with Claire and her little ones and have a nice little visit while chatting about work, life, kids, and Canada. She’s a great lady and is truly passionate about what she’s doing! She makes comments like “I can’t stop with the scents I have currently, because there’s more in my head!” So, you see, not just passionate, but also talented and creative! And – the products are all natural! She sources as many of the ingredients as she can from Saskatchewan, uses essential oils where possible for scents and does not include any of those yucky things like parabens or formaldehyde or petroleum! And #madeinCanada makes it better too!

What’s the essence of what she makes? Well let’s see – are you ready? Body butter, hand and body lotion, body scrub, bath salts, bath bombs, soaps, face care, lip balms, deodorant, baby products, summer products like bug spray and after bite balm! She even has an “Aches Away” Pain Relief Spray and Massage Oil. Are you a scent connoisseur? Claire has scents like Simply Vanilla, Sweet Sandalwood, Black Raspberry Vanilla, Fruit Burst – they all sound yummy!

dsc_0106-2I was lucky enough to be able to try three products. The Black Raspberry Vanilla Bath Salts are divine! They smell so delicious and they soften the water just beautifully. The scent is not overpowering so I can thoroughly enjoy my soak! The Black Raspberry Vanilla Bath Bomb was also perfectly lovely. It bursts away for quite a long time, since they’re pretty good sized bombs! And so professionally packaged! I must say, all of dsc_0630Claire’s products are packaged so beautifully and professional, they’re just beautiful. Go look at her website (it’s gorgeous too!) and you just might be surprised what this talented young lady has done with her products! The last product I got to try was the Pink Himalayan Salt Exfoliating Scrub.  This scrub is one of those to fall in love with – I’ve never used a scrub much before as I tend just ignore my skin other than applying lotion when it starts getting too dry. But this scrub is silky yet scrubby and smells delicious (I promise, I never tasted it!) and it does a good job of getting rid of all that dead skin that tends to linger!

Wanting to get your hands on some of these products too? Make sure you visit Claire’s website, as she has her retailers listed there. Most of them are local to Saskatchewan’s East Central area, but you can always order from her website too! In fact, her website hasn’t been up and running for that long so you’d make her day if you’d order from it and prove it’s working! Haha! Right now she’s even running a promotion offering free shipping on any orders over $75! That’s a pretty good deal considering how pricey shipping gets these days! Make sure you check her out on Facebook too, it’s a great way to keep up with what’s new!
