At first I thought these mini candles were exceptionally highly priced at £30.95, but in fact, they’re so much more than scented candles. Believe it or not, I’m using them as lip balm as I write!
The candles are made from organic soya wax which has a low melting point along with argan oil and shea butter ; a few minutes of fragranced burning and you have enough liquid soya/argan/shea to then use as a massage oil or a balm. The two candles are gently scented – don’t be thinking great bursts of overpowering fragrance – there’s nothing for the first few minutes and then as the flame starts to melt the wax, you get little wafts of fragrance. I’m using Indulge, which is a blend of ylang ylang, neroli and bergamot and it’s beautifully soft and sensual. I haven’t dared break out Passion – it’s not Mr BBB’s birthday or anything ;-).
If you haven’t heard of Marie Reynolds, she’s one of the UK’s most sought after facialists; she’s also incredibly intuitive and will knock you sideways with her quick ability to assess your personality. I wouldn’t even save these for Valentine’s day to be honest; they’re a lovely indulgent treat and I love that you can use up every single drop of ‘wax’ on your body.

Ahh this reminds me of the fact that I’ve nearly run out of yankees for my house.
Instead of making a repurcahse I may give these a try they sound lovely.
