Gold Canyon Review and Gift Basket Giveaway!!


Gold Canyon is probably most well-known for their amazing candles. They are a party-plan candle business with more than 25,000 independent demonstrators in North America! But, that's not all. Gold Canyon also offers a complete line of bath and body products, home decor, and natural cleaning supplies!

"Gold Canyon was founded based on courage, humility and passion, which are considered to be the true original ingredients behind Curt and Karen Waisath’s dream. Gold Canyon and the rich fragrant candles began in the Waisath’s kitchen, where Karen began developing candles that would fill her home with ambience.
Late in 1997, the perfect scented candle was developed that would quickly find a loyal and passionate following. Karen not only created the candles she was seeking through her passionate intuition and innovation, she also found a way to have a candle business that would allow her to be at home with her children. They discovered people not only loved their scented candles, but also the opportunity and flexibility of a home candle business. One year later, Gold Canyon grew from one candle to over 26 scented candles in four different sizes.
Gold Canyon offers great candles, body and home products and wickless home fragrance along with great opportunities realized through the courage, humility and passion of a dream…truly the essence of living well™"




Gold Canyon generously sent me a couple products to review. I received the Emerge Bare Necessities Gift Set, which is a really nice bath care set. It comes with a 5 oz. bottle of Start Clean Body Lather, Ready To Shine Body Polish, Out On A Limb Body Lotion, and a Bath Loofah, all in a large pink cosmetic bag!
I really like the scent of the 3 bath products.  It's a very light, fresh smell with just a hint of something floral.  The body polish is probably my favorite out of the 3. I like the gentle exfoliating I get when I use this one. The lotion is great to apply after my morning shower; it's light, not oily, but really moisturizes for an all-day smooth hydration.  The body lather lathers up quite well, and also leaves my skin feeling soft and clean.


Then, I was also sent a Fudge Brownie Candle. Wow! Talk about a great smelling candle!  It smells more like the brownie batter than baked brownies...a luscious, rich scent!  I love it! This candle is made with rich cocoa, creamy butter and sweet vanilla-and you can definitely tell. It is a 19 oz. jar candle that will last a long time (unless if I keep burning it...I get a lot of use out of this candle :)  You can also get this great scent in wickless candle scent pods and tealight/votive candles! The only drawback to this scent? Every time I smell it I start craving fudge brownies!




Gold Canyon is giving a Gift Basket to one of my readers! This gift basket comes with: a 32 oz. Rosemary Mint All Purpose Cleaner; 1 Warm Apple Crisp Candle; 1 Sliced Watermelon Candle; 1 Awaken Linen Scent;  1 Emerge Bath Soak; 1 Sprayer; and a pack of 9 Scented Tealights (Cinnamon Vanilla scent). And, of course, a nice basket :) Wow!
