Honeycat Cosmetics Will Make You RAWR! (Discount and Giveaway!)

At Cat Camp this past March I met many people from different parts of the cat loving world. One person I was delighted to chat with was Terri of Honeycat Cosmetics. Her display quickly drew me to her table and I was immediately intrigued by her products.


Sorry, Lexy. These goodies are for Mother




I was so happy to learn her products are cruelty-free! Terri told me that she loves animals and has been a Vegetarian for a very, very long time. “I can't tolerate cruelty on any level; that includes humans and our furry friends. You know, there's really no need at all to test on animals. I think we have created some pretty sweet bath and body treats without that awful animal testing.” Quality products that are not tested on animals make me happy! 




A self-admitting bath-o-holic, Brooklyn born Terri wanted to create gourmet, good for your skin and body products. One day her fiancé said “You’re always buying other people’s stuff. Why don’t you make your own?” The lightbulb went off in Terri’s head and she started whipping up products in her kitchen sink, testing them on her fiancé. When he insisted he simply would not continue to go to work" smelling like a girl", Terri started using friends and relatives. Before she knew it, she was getting orders for bridal showers and birthday parties and Honeycat Cosmetics was born seven years ago. All of her products are manufactured right here in the USA in a “green facility” and are not tested on animals by Honeycat or their suppliers. Wondering how Terri came up with the name "Honeycat"? It's the pet name her fiancé calls her! How sweet is that? 



Honeycat’s line of bath, body, and spa products are designed to appeal to a girl’s inner cat woman. They use the cat as a symbol of female strength, and all of their hip, sexy and fun products follow that theme. Shower gels “On the Prowl” and “You’ve Got to be Kitten Me”, bath bombs “Sex & the Kitty” and “CatNip Nap”, and scrubs “I’m in Heat Foot Scrub” and “Calico-cuccino Scrub” can really make a girl purr. 




You can also choose from several sets. And if you’re having trouble choosing, you can order the Honeycat Purr Box and choose seven sample sizes. The Chick of the Sea Gift Set includes Chick of The Sea/ Chocolate, Amaretto,Mint bath salt, a Honeycat Signature washcloth and the Coquito/Coconut Rum Bubble bath. Can we discuss how cute the bath crystals are packaged in a “sardine tin”? 




The entire Honeycat line includes shower gels, scrubs, bath bombs, mini bath bombs, bubble baths, creams & butters, salts & soaks, and luscious lip stuff, as well as Honeycat gear that supports Breast Cancer Awareness. 


So, let’s get down to the nitty gritty (or should I say the nitty kitty? Okay, I’m not as creative as Terri and her crew) and discuss my thoughts and experience. I love, love, love Honeycat products! The Cat-Tails for Two Apricot/Grand Marnier Shower Gel is made with ultra-moisturizing sweet almond oil, mango butter, shea butter. A little goes a long way with this gel. It has a thick and bubbly lather that smells divine! The Rub My Tummy Milk & Honey Hand and Body Cream is To.Die.For. Trust me… you’ll never want to use another cream again. Made with Shea Butter, Kukui Oil, Honey, and Butter Milk, this body cream leaves your skin silky smooth. I also got to sample the Cat Burglar Shower Gel that’s scented like chocolate and bacon, Warm Milk Martini Moisturizing Powdered Milk Bath (chock full of coconut milk powder, honey powder, yogurt milk powder, and skin softening milk proteins), and the Chick of the Sea Gift Set (warning: you may want to drink the coquito/rum bubble bath, but it’s only for bathing!) 




I love bath and body products and can be a little particular about them. Honeycat Cosmetics passed my test! They are high end, high-quality products at affordable prices. And who can resist the cat-themed names and packaging? 

Terri told me she and her team get the inspiration for product names and packing “Anywhere and everywhere! We watch an awful lot of the Food Network for inspiration and Animal Planet. We are also inspired by the 1940's and 1950's dress, decor and music. Most times we sit around the office and brain storm. Admittedly, sometimes the ideas that the girls come up with are ...ahem ...a bit risqué. Sometimes just watching my two fur babies will spark inspiration.”



Speaking of her fur babies, she has two; Pop and Beep, who were both strays. “When I first found Poppa, he was only six weeks old, in the rain, covered in fleas. I didn't hesitate. I scooped him up (fleas and all) and rushed him to the vet who said ‘He's very malnourished and will probably not make it. You should put him down.’ I wanted to punch her! Again, I scooped him up, bathed him and fed him till his tummy was poking out. He is now five years old, 15 pounds and king of the house! My fur baby girl is Beep, we call her that because she 'talks' all the time but it sort comes out as " beep, beep, beep." I got her from my Doorman who found her in an alley. He knew there was a crazy cat girl in the building and when he asked me if I wanted her I said ARE YOU KIDDING? GIMME!!” I love rescue stories!

We aren't entering because we have a give-away going on now too (and reviewed them last week), but we wanted to tell you how fantastic your review is and that we LOVE that you included more background info about her cats, etc., AND that you actually met her in person! I am completely in love with that apricot grand mariner shower gel!!! I don't take baths, so I gave the bath stuff to my step daughter (who just bought a house and she has 3 cats) and she is a REAL "girly-girl!!", and she was over-the-moon excited!!!!!!!!!!! These products ROCK and so does your review of them! catchatwithcarenandcody
