Contest open to Canadians.
I was recently introduced to a fantastic new Canadian company: Shian Naturals Health and Beauty Products, based in Burlington, ON. They make premium quality, all-natural, unscented, skin hair and body products sold exclusively in Canada.
They sent me a trial pack to sample, and I was very impressed. A few highlights:
Just…Massage and Body Oil: How very clever of a company to include an item which will put the reviewer in a relaxed, positive frame of mind…how can you find fault with a product then? A great foot rub was enough to prove to me that the oil works just perfectly! (Note to companies: no matter what you sell – books, clothes, whatever – throwing in some massage oil when sending your product out can’t help but improve the review!)
Just…Shampoo: The product feels a little different in hand (more of a gel consistency) but lathers up nicely and rinses well.
Just…Organic Body Wash: Nice texture, leaves that squeaky clean feeling
Just…Moisturizing Lotion: I used this as a hand/foot cream, and put on after my mani/pedi. It’s not at all sticky or clumpy, and did the job well.
And by the way, when they claim to be unscented, they mean it. I have used other “natural” products with rather “unnatural” scents (in fact another brand that I didn’t end up reviewing, because I told the company my overall take wasn’t positive), but if you’re someone who requires or prefers scent-free products, this is definitely the company to go with.
Shian also makes (and their trial pack contains) Lip Balm, Body Butter and Glycerin Bar Soap, which I haven’t gotten around to using yet.
Something else that really impresses me about Shian is their prices. Usually you have to pay substantially more for the clear conscience of “going green”, but their products are quite reasonable. Full-sized shampoo, conditioner, body wash, moisturizing lotion or massage and bath oil retail for only $13 each…much less than other “natural” products.
Now is your opportunity to win the same “Just…Trial Sample Pack” (pictured above) that I received, containing a trial-sized version of every Shian product. These items are great for overnight bags, purses, or beach bag…and also an opportunity to sample the wares and decide if you want to invest in the full-size versions. The items arrive in a pretty gift bag, with a bath scrubby thrown in for good measure. The prize is worth $25 (before taxes and shipping, which of course are covered for the winner).
