Target Addict: CALDREA

Can Target get any better? Honestly? On the end cap of the aisle this week I discovered these fabulously packaged and wonderfully scented products (and on sale to boot!). Thanks to Chase lathering up his entire body - outfit and all - with the testers, I was able to soak in the delicious smells post Target. If you are unfamiliar with what I am talking about, here ya go.

Target awhile back teamed up with Caldrea, longtime icon of design and style for the home, to offer an exclusive line of budget-friendly line of aromatherapy products including dish soap, countertop cleaner, hand lotion, hand soap, hand balm, all-purpose cleaner, as well as home ambiance items including candles and reed diffusers. Scents, priced from $5.99 to $19.99, include Citron Ginger, Herbs of Provence, and Olive Oil. Home fragrance items, priced from $9.99 to $14.99 come scented in Citron Ginger, Water Lily, Pomegranate Fig, White Birch and Cypress Sage. All of the scents have a very natural, organic, and have an elegant quality to them. I'm a fan. Especially because they are not only adorable but affordable.

The one product I personally would not buy from this line is the Countertop Cleanser. It leaves behind a nice refreshing scent, but it's not for the down and dirty jobs. It claims it can be used on tile, natural and synthetic stone, and finished wood. I tried it on our stainless steel and it worked fine but not great. It doesn't make sense for me to waste time cleaning the counters with one product, only to have to go back over it with another. Save your money and stick to the one that gets down and dirty on the first swipe.

If you're looking for an Easter or Mother's Day gift idea, their gift sets might just hit the spot. Hurry and you could probably still get them on sale!!


  1. I became addicted to these products and target has DISCONTINUED them. Does anyone know where I can find them?

  2. Hello you can buy the original formula at lots of great boutiques stores. If you are in Toronto Canada you can buy them from Keep me posted. If you got addicted to the Target version of this line then you will be amazed at the original formula. It is better quality and not that expensive. You can always look them up on shopcaster/keepmeposted and order it there. ( not sure if they ship internationally) but I am sure you could contact the store and they might ship from there.

  3. You can buy Caldrea at Amazon as well.
