Helen Julia Review

Tamiko Hargrove understands what it is like to feel tired and burned out from simply doing too much. After working in Corporate America, she recognized that we all have the need to take time for ourselves and rest. So with her homegrown creativity and flair, she created a premium collection of hand-poured scented soy candles to help her customers to create a relaxing spa environment right in the comfort of their home. Helen Julia was born!

I know that when I want to relax, I need to set the right amibience. I need dim lights, soft music and of course, candles! I especially love having a bath in the dark with just a few lit candles. Ahhhh feel the peace!!

Helen Julia’s candles are based on simple accords of fragrance notes and are available in two sizes. The 10.5 oz costs $38 and burns for 60 hours and the 3 oz. costs $16 and burns for 20 hours. They come with an individual velvet pouch. Some examples of the candles available are Pink Diamond Soy Candle (Cotton Candy Scent), Sexy Suede Soy Candle (Vanilla Sandalwood Scent) and Terrycloth Robe Soy Candle (Fresh Laundry Scent).

Helen Julia sent me a 10.5 oz Chocolate Pear-adise Soy Candle (White Chocolate and Pear Scent) for review. It came packaged in a pretty black box with a ribbon making it ready to go for gift-giving. However, this candle was for me and for me alone!! The scent was delicious!! So sweet and tempting and made me want to go out right away and buy some chocolate. I burn the candle in our bedroom and love how the fragrance permeates the room. It is just the right amount of scent- not too little and not too much. I’m a big fan of Helen Julia!

Gift With Purchase

Helen Juliais offering Lipfusion Bloom and Lipfusion XL with every purchase of a large candle. I tried these lipglosses and they are also really nice! A girl can never have enough lipgloss!
