So there. I have tried Scentsy. And I still don't see what all the fuss is about. I didn't find these tarts to be any better or worse than most other brands I've tried. One thing I noticed about the package was that there are eight cubes, as opposed to only six cubes in the usual clam shell packages elsewhere. At first I was like 'Ohhhhh, well now I see why these cost so much more.' But then I checked my Walmart packs and found that while there are only six cubes, those cubes are bigger. A pack of Scentsy tarts is 2.6 oz for $5.00 plus shipping. A pack of Walmart tarts is 2.5 oz for $2.00. So Scentsty's .1 oz difference is worth three extra dollars plus shipping? No.
I've also heard time and time again that Scentsy products only work with other Scentsy products. Example, their tarts will only melt in their warmer and only their replacement bulbs will work. I don't believe this to be true. I think these are selling points that fool uninformed customers, to keep them coming back.
But anyway, Scentsy does have several other products besides just tarts. They have three sizes of warmers. They have room sprays, car fresheners, travel tins, and they have even branched out to bath and body products. Wish I could see the ingredients on their website but they don't list them anywhere. I am not against using their tarts and would gladly buy more if I saw some unique scent that I couldn't get anywhere else. And I'm very curious about those bath and body products! But I also know I can get the same types of products cheaper and more easily elsewhere.
I also wish I knew a different seller.
So what do you think of Scentsy? Have you tried them? If you swear by them, have you ever tried anything else to be able to compare? I'm very curious about why people love their Scensty so much.
