CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Freen Review & eGift Card Giveaway!!

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

 

 

 

If you fre­quent the Cool­Canucks blog you will recall that we recently teamed up with a fan­tas­tic com­pany called Freen to bring you a won­der­ful review and give­away. Alex from Freen loved the response so very much that he has agreed to offer you all another give­away. This time though, he would really appre­ci­ate it if you signed up for the Freen  newslet­ter so you can keep up to date on all the new items being offered at Freen and the spe­cials to come in the future.  

As men­tioned in our pre­vi­ous review, which you can check out right HERE , Freen is a new online Cana­dian web store that offers soy can­dles and nat­ural body lotions in all kinds of yummy scents. Make sure you check out their huge selec­tion of can­dles and melts. They have the best can­dles out there (the Sat­suma is my all time favourite) and you can’t go wrong with any choice that you make. And they also come in four very con­ve­nient sizes which makes them per­fect for every space.

I was sent two of the adorable 3oz jars of the soy can­dles this time and I am in love with both scents. This size is great for a small space like a bath­room or bed­room and both smell absolutely incred­i­ble. The Storm Watch scent smells like being out­side after it has rained and every­thing smells so fresh and new, per­fect for your bath­room when you want to have a long and relax­ing bath. The sec­ond was the Sat­suma scent that smells so close to the cit­rus fruit that it is almost good enough to eat. I keep that one on my desk and I am totally in love with the scent.

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Freen Product Review And $25.00 Gift Card Giveaway!

Monday, April 9th, 2012

 

 

Freen is a is an online store that has been around for less than a year and they offer nat­ural, organic skin care and many dif­fer­ent vari­eties of soy can­dle prod­ucts. Freen is Cana­dian made, Cana­dian owned and based out of Ontario Canada. Freen Soy wax can­dles are an excel­lent choice for those who wish to burn envi­ron­men­tally friendly can­dles. The pre­mium Soy wax and care­fully for­mu­lated fra­grances ensure con­sis­tent smells and longest burn­ing time. Offered are a won­der­ful range of entic­ing scents to suit all moods and pref­er­ences. If you would like to place an order they ship to both Canada and USA loca­tions. Orders over $100 offer free ship­ping and under $100 there is a flat ship­ping fee of $9.95. They also offer Gift Cards in $5, $10 and $25 denom­i­na­tions for those hard to buy for people

 

A few facts about Freen soy candles:

- Soy Can­dles last 50% longer then can­dles made of Petroleum-based paraffin

- Burn slower and cooler (help­ing to bet­ter dis­trib­ute fragrance)

- Eco-friendly and non-toxic.

- Burn Cleaner

- No Car­cino­gens pro­duced from Soy burn­ing wax.

 

I received three won­der­ful items to try out and review, French Vanilla Soy Can­dle, Laven­der Soy Can­dle and Rose­wood and Lemon Body Lotion

 

 

I was very impressed with the French Vanilla Soy Can­dle. It comes in a very cute open glass con­tainer and has a wooden wick. I had never tried a can­dle with a wooden wick and love the flame that it pro­duces. The scent was absolutely divine and I am totally hooked on it. The scent descrip­tion on the web­site, “A per­fect blend of french vanilla with top notes of white choco­late with bot­tom notes of rich vanilla cream”. I will def­i­nitely be mak­ing a future pur­chase to stock up these amaz­ing candles.

 

The sec­ond item was a Soy Laven­der Can­dle. Laven­der is great to help you feel calm, relieve anx­i­ety and stress. I decided that I would use this can­dle in my bed­room and I lit it after I crawled into bed to read and relax. It was just the ticket and I dozed off to sleep with no prob­lems at all. I also like that these can­dles are long last­ing, burn­ing time is between 35–40 hours. On the Freen web­site this can­dle is described as “A truly herbal fra­grance blend­ing the rich notes of laven­der with the hint of warm wood notes”

 

Lastly is the Rose­wood Lemon Body Lotion. I work at a job han­dling papers all day long and usu­ally put on tons of lotion on dur­ing the day because my hands get really dry. I brought the Rose­wood Lemon Body Lotion to use for a few day and what a dif­fer­ence! I did not find it oily or greasy and my hands felt soft for ages after apply­ing. I like that is con­tains 100% pure essen­tial oils of rose­wood and organic lemon. This lotion is described on the Freen web­site as “free of petro­chem­i­cals, syn­thetic fra­grances and colours, suit­able for nor­mal to dry and sen­si­tive skin”

 

In my opin­ion this is a great Cana­dian online shop and I would rec­om­mend the prod­ucts to everyone.
