Spa Sisters is a luxury line of handmade bath and body products. Sisters Tricia (a Londoner!) and Kerri started making handmade spa products for fun and ended up turning it into a business that specializes in naturally delicious goodies for your whole body. Made without SLS’s, SLES’s, paraben, petroleum products or FDC colour/dye, these products are also not tested on animals and come in recyclable packaging. Sound too good to be true? Mama’s, I promise you, it is not!When I received my bag of testers from Spa Sisters, my first thought was: loot bag! It was like a treat bag for grown ups! Everything was packaged so prettily and with colour coordination. With my love of all things pretty, I was won over instantly. My four year old daughter came over, wanting to see what I was giggling over and we eagerly unwrapped the packages and tested them one at a time: strawberry lip butter, organic shea butter, citrus sorbet body meringue, and a pink grapefruit mini bath bomb (that we didn’t try that moment, but that made her immediately ask to have a bath that night).
The bath bomb looked like a cookie with pink sprinkles inside and had a lovely light scent. It exploded in the water, which my girls loved, and left their skin soft and fresh. A definite keeper! The body meringue is labeled so perfectly. It’s light and luxurious and smells amazing! Goes on smooth and isn’t heavy at all. Feels fabulous and makes you want to snuggle with your own skin all day long.
The organic shea butter was such a treat! So thick, it does heavy duty work on your skin. You know those ugly dry spots you have on your elbows, knees, feet, and hands? Thirsty baby bump skin? Little chafing in a region you can’t discuss? This is your cure. Rub in it really well and watch miracles in action. It’s not greasy and does the job without fuss or drama.
My favourite item though was the strawberry lip butter. I have a slight addiction to lip glosses, balms, stains, and sticks. A horrible thing with all of the chemicals I know I am essentially eating. This was a little stick of heaven! Beeswax, shea butter, pure oils, only good stuff! It’s been in my pocket everyday, all day – I never leave home without it! The best thing is that when my little girls beg to wear mommy’s make up, too, I can let them without worrying about what they have on their lips. No colour, just a hint of strawberry and a whole lot of moisture for your lips. Delish!
You know what’s coming up? You bet – Christmas! Bathbombs and lip butters and meringue, oh my! Stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, treats for yourself! They have the usual products for babies (bum balm, baby bum spray), new mommy’s (boobie balm), kids (bubble bath) as well as products that look good enough to eat like tub truffles and vanilla fudge scrub. They also have gift packages that will save you the trouble of even wrapping gifts!
