The Stratford Apothecary Review & Giveaway {CLOSED}

7:45 AM

***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

I seem to be on a bath and body kick around here lately...hope you all don't mind! I sure do enjoy my showers in the morning...what a nice way to start my day! Usually, my children are up so I make sure they are not going to get into any trouble then I dart into the bathroom (locking the door behind me!!!). I think that my little storage shelf in the shower is the fullest one of all!! Forget the bath toys, it's MOMMY'S stuff. :) I never grow tired of pampering myself...it's one thing that I enjoy some days it really keeps me sane!

It's time, once again, for a review and giveaway from The Stratford Apothecary and I have a really luscious product to introduce you all to today!
If you all remember, I am partnering with The Stratford Apothecary to bring you monthly reviews and giveaways. I missed last month but am back with more goodies this month! The Stratford Apothecary is a really awesome company that carries luxurious bath, body and home products.

Here is a bit more about them...

At The Stratford Apothecary™, our vision is to be the premier supplier of fine bath and body care products and home products on the web. Our mission is to provide the utmost in quality customer care. To that end, The Stratford Apothecary™ exclusively sells products from Asquith & Somerset of England and Castelbel of Portugal.

We have chosen to sell products only from A&S and Castelbel because of their experience and understanding of different market places worldwide. A&S have a good knowledge of what customers around the world of varying ages and backgrounds are looking for in their bath and body products.

Whether you're seeking homemade soap, body cream, tropical soap, bath and body gift sets or salt scrubs, we carry a wide selection of delightful scents. We at The Stratford Apothecary strive to bring you unique and unforgettable body care soaps, lotions, shower gels, body creams and more at pleasantly surprising prices, so feel free to explore our store and discover the perfect new way to treat your body.


I have been very happy with everything I have received from The Stratford Apothecary and my family and friends really love their products too as I have them around my house! So, for this review I was sent the Papaya & Strawberry Exfoliating Sugar Scrub Gift Set.
The first thing that I loved about this Gift Set is the way it looks upon opening the shipping box. It look so cute! The top is very unique and creatively wound together. Then, after pulling it out of the box I could smell the strawberry!
I tried this Papaya & Strawberry Scrub tonight and it feels wonderful! It isn't oily like some scrubs I have tried in the past and it smells really nice. The scent is not overpowering whatsoever...just right!
The Body Puff is unlike any I have seen before. It is made out of foam and isn't over sized so I really liked that too. This scrub will exfoliate your skin, clear out dead skin cells and clean dirty pores...which is just what I need sometimes.
This particular Gift Set costs $16.97...which is not bad at all, considering you are getting a 17 ounce jar of scrub and a cute Body Puff all wrapped up beautifully.

So, in my opinion...The Stratford Apothecary's Papaya & Strawberry Exfoliating Sugar Scrub Gift Set is very nice. I enjoyed my experience with it and my skin felt great after using it. The scent is sweet and fruity, but not too fruity. I would definitely recommend this product (and company) to all my readers. :)

The Stratford Apothecary would love to give one of these gift sets away to one of you. The winner will have their choice of three different Fruit Scrub Gift Sets. So, here are your choices of scents along with your entry options. Winner picks one: Passion Fruit & Nectarine, Grapefruit & Orange, Mango & Lime.

Mandatory Entry:
Visit The Stratford Apothecary and tell me which of their other products interests you. Then, tell me which body scrub scent you would choose should you win! You do not have to be a blogger to enter, but you must have a valid email where you can be reached should you win. If you do not leave an email address, it must be where I can easily find it. This giveaway is open to US residents and will end 5/31 at 11:59 pm EST. The winner will be chosen using random.org and will be notified by email. The winner will have 48 hours to respond, or another winner will be selected.
