Review and Giveaway: Scandle: body candle



 Everyone loves to get massages.  It's soothing, it feels great, what's not to like?  A message is supposed to be a calming thing.  Some people will listen to calming music, or burn a nice candle while getting a massage to further relax them.  This is where the Scandle comes in. 

A body candle.  Wax that only burns 2 degrees higher than the body tempture to make for a soothing (and not too hot) massage lotion.  Keeping the candle burning allows for a nice calming fragrance to fill the room.  Made out of soy, the candle is not sticky and does not harden in a quick wax formation like a normal candle.  It is also not tested on animals, a fact I really like.  The Scandle body candle has been seen in In Shape magazine, MarieClaire.com, Women'sDay.com, and Essence Magazine.




Scandle sent me a travel tin of the Scandle in Fig & Brown Sugar to review.  I immediatly noticed the smell.  It is a very clean and warm scent, I really like it.  The travel tin has a burn time of 15-30 hours and comes on 15 different scents. 

I was very excited to try this, and yet, a little nervous to pour hot wax on someone.  I quickly overcame that though, after trying it myself and finding it really does not hurt in the least.  Th warm massage lotion feels really good on the skin.  It cools down pretty quickly though, but, don't worry, it's not like a normal wax; it doesn't really "dry". 

I hate using regualr lotion when giving a massage, it gets gunky after a little while, and you have to keep reappling it.  The Scandle isn't like that.  If anything, it last too long!  It seemily never drys, it doesn't gunk up, and it is extreamly smooth, and not sticky in the least.  Have I yet mentioned that it smells great too? I really love the smell of this candle!

Washing it off your hands is a breeze too.  I was expecting it to stick to me, like a regular candle would, but it didn't.  A little soap and water, and it was like I never used it.  My hands were clean and wax free.  You should not use the Scandle if you are a Pyromaniac or allergic to nut based products. This is because the Scandle contains soy, jojoba, and shea oils.

Scandle also sent me Dead Sea Salt Scrub to review as well.  It comes in over 18 fragrances, but I recieved it in Fig & Brown Sugar.  It smells fantastic!  The scrub can be used alone or in coordination with the Scandle candle to produce a moisturizing and gentle body scrub.  It can also be used while soaking in the tub.  And, obviously, you shouldn't use it if you have any open cuts or sores since the salt will irritate any open wounds.
