We are all guilty of it, working, running from here-to-there, and not actually taking time out torelax and unwind properly.
I for one have to hold my hands up, the summer months came and went in the blink of an eye and but each week I promise myself, I will take one night off – time out to relax; ME Evening was born (I wont lie sometimes this was 11pm on a Sunday evening, but I still did it)
With very a busy schedule, work, kids and family, SPA days are a luxury for me and if I am honest, I would actually feel guilty taking a whole day out to myself. Luckily for me I was introduced to another local mumtrepreeur back at the North Star Supper Club in May – Beverley Pollington, founder of Candle da la Crème.
Beverley describes herself as is an inspired artisan who is dedicated to producing unique and bespoke natural spa massage oils, skincare serums, bath oils and home fragrance that are carefully hand-crafted. I call her the Home SPA Queen!
I was kindly gifted a peppermint and lemon foot candle, which is designed to relax, refresh andrejuvenate feet and I couldn’t wait to try it. We all know that the whole body can be restored through better treatment of our feet!
Firstly, I would like to congratulated Candle da la Crème on their amazing packaging. Beautiful boxes and the candle is housed in a luxurious ceramic vase – so lush!
I was using the candle throughout the summer months, June to August when generally my feet would be very dry and cracked. Honestly I have horrible feet, so I wont pain you with pictures, but I used the candle once a week as part of a ‘ME Evening’ which also included a hot bath, a glass of wine and a beautiful face mask from Tropic Skincare!
On lighting the candle, you are instantly immersed with a beautiful scent, which isn’t over powering and just perfect during a hot, relaxing bath. Upon exiting the tub you blow out the candle and hey-presto your massage oil is ready and the perfect temperature for application.
As you pour the oil from the innovatively designed vase, with pouring tip, the warmth on your skin, couple with relaxing aroma is just epic. As I massaged the oils into my feet I could feel the day’s pressure and tension ease with every circular motion.
Each week I also had oil left, so massaged it up my freshly shaven legs; well I could let it go to waste!
Following the first application, I seen an instant difference in my feet, they were soft, smoothand I had slept so well that night – result! Each week I seen an improvement in the skin on my feet, but the biggest benefit I feel this product offers; it’s an affordable home spa treatment, which leaves you relaxed – ok we don’t have the professional to apply the product as you relax, but it offers the same level of luxury and I found the results just as effective.
With Candle de la Crème’s unique formulations of pure essential oils and natural ingredients it comes as no surprised that the Merchant SPA has already embraced Beverly’s beautiful products and utilising them within their SPA treatments.
Combining her love for skincare, body massage, fragrance and of course candles, Beverley’s innovative creations promise to “Enlighten the beauty world to a new and an exciting collection of skincare products and home fragrance which promise to enrich, enthrall and encapsulate.”
This Sugah Gal fell in love with the foot candle and I can’t wait to visit Bedeck, Linen Green Dungannon where Candle de la Crème’s full collection launched yesterday! Including 3 different product ranges: Sensuelle Collection of Spa Massage Candles; Cosmétique Collection of Skincare Candles and Parfum Maison Collection of luxury Home Fragrance candles and Reed diffusers available in 13 different fragrances!
