Crosscreek Country Candles Review & Giveaway - ENDED


I've been a longtime customer of Crosscreek Country Candles and I'm excited to spread the word about this fabulous little tart shop through a review/giveaway! Deana, the super sweet owner, crafts these yummy tarts and linen sprays out of her country home in Ohio. Not sure what exactly a tart or melt is? Tarts are basically wickless candles that you heat up using a tart burner. See the Crosscreek Country Candles FAQ for more info. My favorite thing about tarts is that if you get bored of a scent you can store the tart once it cools and pop in a new one. (Tip: To easily remove your cooled tart from the tart burner, put the burner in the freezer for a few minutes and the solid tart will pop right out)

Crosscreek Country Candles offers so many yummy scents and I was excited to receive a package full of different scents to review. I immediately popped in "Watermelon Smoothie" and it was the perfect spring tart, fruity and fresh but not overwhelming. The next day I tried "Fruit Loops" and it smelled exactly like a bowl of the cereal, which is why I had to blow it out before I sent Mr. Designs by Vanessa to the grocery store at 11pm! This tart should totally come with the cereal for pregnant women lol! I also tried "Love Bug", which Mr. Designs by Vanessa claimed wasn't manly enough but I loved! Some of my new favorites are "Green Apple" and "Satsuma". My absolute favorite, favorite, favorite tart in the entire universe (I'm not exaggerating, this is one yummy tart) is "Celtic Moonspice", a fragrant blend of warm spices, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. You can find the scent list and descriptions HERE.
