Sponsor Spotlight: Scandle Body Massage Candle

I love trying out new products. It is so much fun. But I have to admit I was really wary of trying the new Scandle Limited Edition Body Massage Candle. I mean, I've accidentally splashed candle wax on myself before and it's hot. I had this vision in my head of a hot candle wax being dripped all over my back and that didn't sound like a relaxing massage to me! But Scandle promises to burn at just 2 degrees higher than body temperature, so I decided to try it.
It comes in a 4 fl. oz. metal tin with a lid. This Scandle is a limited edition and the scent is Chocolate Dipped Strawberry and oh my goodness, when I lit this candle my house smelled soooo good.
I let it burn for about 30 minutes on the kitchen counter. I have to admit, it made me really crave chocolate covered strawberries!! I noticed the silicone band around the tin and realized it's a stylish wrist band that says Reduce Reuse Recycle. How clever!
I looked more closely at the tin and realized when it was empty it would make a great little storage box. I peeled the Scandle label off the lid very easily and the top of the tin is see-through! I like when companies are eco-conscious. The Scandle is also made of 100% natural products. But, I was still really nervous about touching the softened Scandle because it looks like a real candle with regular wax. I figured it would be a really good idea to blow out the fire before I attempted to touch it!
I braced myself and stuck my finger in the Scandle right after I blew out the flame. It was just warm. It was warmer than the stuff they use to rip out my stray eyebrows. But this felt different. I pulled my finger out, covered with a glob of the Scandle warmed wax and began to rub it into the skin on the back of my hand. It's a shimmering lotion! As I smoothed it onto my skin, it occurred to me that I never smelled so delicious!
It left a slight sheen on my skin, just enough for a good massage. I rubbed some more up my left arm and my skin warmed a bit where I applied it. It absorbed into my skin well and didn't leave me feeling greasy like massage oils sometimes do. I love it! I smelled so good all afternoon and when my husband got home, it still smelled really good and it was time for us to try it together! This is a fabulous unique Valentine's Day Gift!

  2. It does look just like a candle! Amazing. I can imagine lighting it near your tub and when you get out of the tub, blowing it out and using it on your hands. Super cool!

  9. Thanks for your review. My main concerns with this product were the same as yours. It's good to know that the candle wax doesn't burn and absorbs well into the skin w/o feeling greasy.

  17. I've always wondered with these about the safety issue with pouring the wax out while the flame is lit - good to know they stay liquified long enough to extinguish first!

  19. This sounds like a great combo between candle and massage oil :) I definitely never think about candles that aren't just for light and/or making the house smell good :)

    I have never had a massage with wax, and always wanted to try it. This review has helped make up my mind that I would like to try it. The candle sounds really nice, and made me crave chocolate good thing vday is right around the corner. Thank you for the review, and also do they have different sizes or is it all one size?

  29. Thats really cool how a candle can work as a lotion too. Sounds like something that I just might think about trying.
