Scandle Candle Review & Giveaway



Do you want to be pampered this Mother's Day? I have just the gift for you! I was privileged to test out a fabulous massage product made by Scandle Candle, their shimmering lotion candle. This isn't just any ordinary massage candle but a candle that burns at 2 degrees above body temperature. Just light the wick, wait a few minutes, and enjoy the scented ambience and the wonderfully smooth massage oils.


Scandle Candle has a very informative website which includes an in-depth FAQ page with answers to questions like who shouldn't use Scandle (those with nut allergies), the average burn time of the candle and how you can tell when a massage candle is made mostly of soy wax. (Soy wax is a bad thing, by the way. Massaging with wax? Ew.) I love a good massage but I was especially pleased with the foot rub my husband gave me. We're sandal wearing people but I hate dry heels. This oil was so luxurious it left me feeling moisturized and soft for days!


What I loved about my lotion candle:
*Made from all natural ingredients including soy, shea butter, jojoba & vitamin E.
*I sampled the shimmering lotion candle and honestly the shimmer isn't overpowering. I live in a very sunny environment and I had to look closely in the sunlight to see the shimmer. Supposedly it hides imperfections by deflecting light. How cool is that? Filling my wrinkles and aged skin with soft & slightly luminescent oils. What a genius idea!
*The oil feels so light and soothing. I was afraid of feeling sticky like I was coated in something but instead my skin felt soft to the touch.
*I like the candle holder design with the lip. My sample was actually the travel sized container without a lip and I found that I struggled to pour precisely where I wanted without spilling. Definitely order the lipped candle.
I must admit that the Lily of the Valley wasn't my favorite scent but that's because I'm not a floral girl. I would love to smell their vanilla or fig & brown sugar scents.

  8. One of my biggest pet peeves of getting a massage (not like I even get one that often! LOL) is the cold lotion/oil that gets poured onto my back. If the whole idea of a massage is to relax, the shock of the cold lotion kind of defeats the purpose. So, my favorite feature of the Scandle candles is that the oil comes out WARM!
