Honeycat Cosmetics Review and Giveaway!

You know what they say about first impressions...

And then, there is the second impression and the third impression...and Honeycat Cosmetics hits them all!

I'll start with the first impression...when I opened the box, the first thing that I saw was the leopard print tissue paper and the pink (yes, pink!) packing popcorn. An A+ for the first impression.

The second impression was the actual packaging of the products. Anyone in marketing knows that in order to make your products stand out from the next company's products, you have to come up with packaging that not only represents what your company wants to portray, but also creates a lasting impression and creates some type of appeal for your products. As I mentioned, Honeycat hit a home run on the packaging. They also appealed to my nose, and if you're a regular reader here at Mommy Rantings, you already know how quickly I fall in love with products that have delicious aromas!

The cutest packaging that I have ever seen came in the sardine-can looking Foaming Bath Crystals. The third impression was the aroma that came from the can (which was nothing like the nose-burning smell of sardines). A minty, raspberry chocolatey aroma wafted from the bath cystals - it is prrrr-fect for a relaxing soak in the tub.

The next thing I had to sniff was the You Gotta Be Kitten Me shower gel, which was adorned with a pretty pink bow. I immediately picked up the strong, yet soothing aroma of pomegranate - how I love the thick scent of pomegranate! It gets better than the aroma, though. The nutrient-rich shower gel has ingredients like cocoa butter, shea butter and sweet almond oil to delicately enrich your skin...and it will last forever (especially if you use it with a bath puff), because a drop makes an enormous lather. More prrrr's.
Frisky Kitty Bath Time Fizzy also has its own unique packaging...and inside, you will experience the soothing aromas of lilac mixed with a little bit of honey and lavender. Some of the ingredients you will find in the bath fizzy are: avocado and sweet almond oils, oatmeal, Goat's Milk and lavender. You can drop the whole entire ball into your bath for a fizzy festival...or you can frugally make it last forever like I'm doing by breaking off pieces into your bath and saving the rest for another time.

Mmmm...but, my most favorite impression of all was the aroma that met my nose when I opened the Warm Milk Martini Moisturizing Powdered Milk Bath. Just listen to the ingredients and imagine the dreaminess that I experienced: Goat's Milk powder, Butter Milk powder, Coconut Milk powder, Sweet Almond oil, Vitamin E and Olive Leaf. Somehow, combined together, the powders create a martini-like aroma with a twist of lime. It's just one of those things that you have to experience for yourself...better yet is the skin-softening creamy milk bath that the powder creates. 

You may be wondering how it can get any better...well, it can! Honeycat Cosmetics prides their company on making products that are both natural (and, you know I love that!) and completely free of animal a former Practice Manager of a veterinary hospital, that's another major plus in my department!

I even have to mention that I made the ultimate mistake of letting my husband get a whiff of the different fragrances in my new assortment from Honeycat Cosmetics...and needless to say, I'm hiding this box from his sneaky paws!
