Candles are one of my very favorite things to give as gifts to family, friends, and to myself! Almost everyone loves a candle, picking one out is usually only as hard as choosing their favorite scent.
What if there were a candle that was also a body lotion? Such a cool idea! It would just make your gifted candle seem so much more special and thoughtful! I had never heard of such a thing myself until I ran across Scandle, and their new Shimmering Lotion Candle ~a candle never felt so good.
Hmm, a basic candle that’s a multi-purpose tool! I love that.
“The Scandle is a candle that burns at 2 degrees above body temperature to produce a shimmering, fragrant lotion to give your skin a healthy, sexy & flawless glow! “
The Shimmering Lotion Candle comes in an array of scents to appeal to your senses like Autumn Harvest (limited), Pumpkin Pie Spice (limited), Hummingbird, Sage & Citrus, Sex On The Beach, Fig & Brown Sugar, and Green Tea Aloe just to name a few.
The limited-edition Copa Cabana fragrance Travel Tin that I received is just the right size for stowing in your bag. And while I’ve never been whisked away to a tropical paradise, that is exactly what the scent of my candle brings to mind. Travel tins are an attractive 4oz container made from recycled materials, they even come with a decorative silicone band that doubles as a fun bracelet for you or your kids.
There is also a larger 10oz ceramic canister with an added pour spout for easy application. Not that it’s hard to apply in the first place though! To use a Scandle Candle you just light the wick, enjoy the aroma while it burns for about half an hour (ignore fighting children, chewing dog, and squawking bird), blow out the flame, then either use your fingertips to dip out the amount you would like to use, or pour directly onto your thirsty skin. Rub in and feel yourself melt and relax!
Scandle says their Shimmering Body Candle will…
- Give your skin a natural shimmer
- Help mask wrinkles and skin imperfection via light reflection
- Hydrate your skin
- Add a gentle aroma and ambiance
…and they are right!
My candle is slowly dwindling away, I’ve found it to be the perfect lotion for my very dry hands, wrists, and cuticles. For some reason the tips of my fingers and backs of my wrists get extremely dry, especially in the fall and winter months. I’ve noticed quite a difference in the softness of my hands since using my Shimmering Lotion Candle though, and so far I have kept my skin from cracking with dryness like usual! The candle itself is really very beautiful when it burns. As the lotion melts, there is a soft glow emitted from the wick, while the liquid lotion itself seems to sparkle with light. I love that the candles are eco-friendly and made with all natural FDA approved ingredients and no added paraffin.
If you are looking for a special gift for someone I think a Scandle Candle would be perfect for teachers, sister-in-laws, friends and you! They are affordable at $13.95 for the 4oz travel tin and $22.95 for a large 10oz reusable/refillable ceramic canister.
