Eclipse Spa Products Sponsor Spotlight Review


You are gonna love this wonderful smelling sugar scrub made by Eclipse Spa! They make several great ones besides the Vanilla Mint, there is Pomegranate & Cassis, Pumpkin Spice, Blooming Roses, Orange Burst and something called HoneyBee Tanning Prep Scrub, which I guess you use before you go out to tan to make it better? These sugar scrubs are 100% natural so you don't have to worry about any chemicals or preservatives. It does have Shea Butter mixed in with the organic sugar so that you will get a great exfoliation every time you use it.

If you are not used to sugar scrubs in the shower, go lightly at first until you get the hang of it. Also, because they are scented, you may have to figure out how much you want to use so that you don't overpower yourself and then not be able to add a perfume that smells different than whatever scent of sugar scrub you just used. If I use a scented sugar scrub, then I don't use a perfume that day. If I want to use one of my perfumes, then I use an unscented sugar scrub. Maybe that explained it better for you what I was trying to say.

 
I have used the Orange Burst and the Blooming Roses before so I can only tell you that those two are a great choice for a sugar scrub. I haven't tried the others so I don't know about those scents yet, but I will get around to it sooner or later. I would love to try the Pumpkin Spice and I did not go on their site ahead of time, or I would have told Michele to order me the Pumpkin Spice.  Oh well, maybe next year! The reason I was thinking that is I am burning a Pumpkin Spice candle and it sure does smell good!

Eclipse Spa has some really great products such as their wonderful roll on perfumes, called SkinScents in several scents. If you ever get the chance, try to get one or two to try and you will love them as much as I do. They are great to have in your purse for times when maybe you left home and forgot to use any fragrance or you just need a quick touch up. My favorites are the Lavender and Moroccan Nights.

It looks like they have added some since the last time I was on their site. Man, I need to get out more, but doing reviews has kinda taken over my life and I need to stop and relax more. I have no idea half of the time what I am missing!  It looks like they changed my Lavender to a Lavender Rose (or it could have been that all along and I didn't pay any attention)! Ha! Mmm, they have added an Island Dreams and a Macha Rose that sounds interesting.  They also have Jasmine, French Vanilla and Grapefruit.

Other products include Soy Candles, Body Wash, Bath Salts, Bubble Bath, Body Lotions and of course the Sugar Scrubs and Skinscents.  Boy, I bet that Lavender Rose and Cedar Sage Soy Candles would have been awesome. I am gonna have to try one or two the next time instead of always getting body care or skin care. But, I am a sugar scrub addict, so I likely won't be giving that up too soon!

Here is what I found out about them under About Us. I did not get the whole story so please when you have a moment go back and read the whole story. It sounds like a really nice company who has a great heart:
