kallisto Creams and Giveaway

Saturday, November 09, 2013

Anyone that knows me knows my love and appreciation for handmade products as a result of this over the years I have been making cards, baking novelty cakes and sewing hanging hearts and pillows.

I also am a supporter of little businesses and love it when I receive handmade products as gifts. A few months back I found the Fabrication Shop in Leeds Light shopping centre. The Fabrication Shop is amazing selling around 50 different Artists, Designers and Makers work. You can find anything from Clothes, Jewellery to Skincare.

The 1st time I went in I came across a Local Leeds company called Kallisto Creams and I picked up a Lipbalm as I was running out of my current one at the time. The one I picked up was the Cocoa and Orange lip balm and this little product had me going back again and again. I have used their Soaps and bath bombs since and Love everything I have tried.

Last week Maria at Kallisto Creams asked me if I would like to sample a few more of her products and I jumped at the chance.

Kallisto Creams is a lifestyle choice for those ethically conscious individuals who desire moisturised, protected and radiant skin but seek an alternative to the mass-produced, chemically-laden toiletries and cosmetics without sacrificing any luxury. All products are made from Natural ingredients perfect for my sensitive skin. 

I went up to the shop to collect the products and Couldn't help purchasing some little goodies for you lovely lot to try. I picked up my favourite lip balm for you to try and hopefully love as much as me and also a Honey Sugar Scrub perfect for dry stubborn skin at this time of year. 

The Bag of goodies she left me was just lovely. I love her simple packaging with handwritten labels to me it gives it that extra little touch of homemade warmness. On opening the bag I saw a lovely little cardboard box tied with brown string and little ball decorations. A perfect Christmas Gift. 

And here is what I received in side - 

Vanilla Body Scrub *

I cannot begin to explain how gorgeous this smells its Very vanilla scented but smells so creamy. I have used this on my hand and the smell has lasted hours I could eat it its that nice.  This is the product Im most excited about trying.

Vanilla Body cream *

once again the smell is amazing and the cream is so thick and creamy the perfect consistency for a body cream. 

Grapefruit hand Softener *

I am so happy I received this as I tried this in the shop and couldn't believe how thick and luxurious the hand sofner was. The scent is fruity and fresh too the perfect combination for a hand cream. I will definitely be repurchasing this. 

Last but not Least 

Cocoa and Orange Lipbalm *

This is my favourite all time Lip balm it is so moisturising but not sticky at all. I had recently ran out so was so happy to receive this. My lips were so dry before using this and with days all the dry cracks had gone. 

Please go to the website and have a browse and if your ever in Leeds pop in and take a look at the little Gift boxes perfect for Christmas presents and also you are supporting Local Businesses.


So here you go your chance to try some of these lovely products. These were bought and paid for by myself  -

Good luck and I hope you like these as much as I do 
You will see a more in depth review of the products when I have used them all for a good length of time to give a true opinion.
