Scandle Candle Review and #Giveaway, Great for V-Day!

Some of my readers may remember a previous review that I did of the yummy vanilla scented travel size Scandle Shimmering Lotion Candle, well I am lucky enough to get to review one of their new scents AND offer a giveaway to one lucky reader!
 Well what would you say if I told you that it was a candle, a spa experience and a massage oil all in one!  That's exactly what Scandle Body Candles are.  They are also hand poured and wonderfully scented and available in Original Scandle Body Massage Candle and Shimmering Lotion Candle varieties.

From their product website:

The patent pending Scandle Shimmering Body Candle is a candle that burns at 2° above body temperature to produce a shimmering, fragrant lotion to give your skin a healthy, sexy & flawless glow!

Made from 100% natural ingredients, Scandle’s Shimmering Body Candle is the first candle to:
  • Give Skin a Natural Shimmer
  • Hide Wrinkles & Imperfections by Deflecting Light
  • Hydrate Skin
  • While Adding Aroma & Ambiance to Any Setting
I received a wonderful travel sized tin of the Shimmering Lotion Candle in their new Sugar Kisses scent - as soon as I took the top off the tin, I knew that the scent was going to be as wonderful as the vanilla scent I had tried previously - it is a wonderful blend of the scents of cotton candy, fruit and more and really needs to be smelled to be appreciated.. the scent is complex and wonderful... everyone in my family smelled something different in it. Burning the candle enveloped the room in the scent and made the anticipation of the wonderful massage oil that much sweeter.

The other special Valentines Day fragrance is Chocolate Dipped Strawberry: Ripe red strawberry is surrounded by creamy milk chocolate notes to create a decadent treat. Sweet vanilla creme and rich maple combine at the base of the scent.  Doesn't that sound yummy too!

The website had said that the candle was a great way to pamper your hands, feet and the rest of your body, so I decided that I'd test out the Shimmering Lotion Candle on my hands... I poured a small dab on to each hand - and immediately felt the warmth spreading... it wasn't hot like melted wax, but just right for both consistency and temperature to create that spa-like experience.

With Valentines Day approaching, if you haven't got a great gift for that special someone - you NEED to get them this candle!!  And I highly recommend just going right for the full sized Shimmering Lotion Candle in Refillable Ceramic Canister in any one of the 18 available scents, or for those who are fragrance sensitive - UNSCENTED!

The other option is to explore a variety of scents by getting a fabulous trio of travel candles called the 

Each sampler pack contains your choice of three 4oz Scandle Travel Massage Candles. Comes packaged in reusable & sustainable hand-woven gift tote.

I highly recommend the Scandle Candle and have already added several other scents to my wish list - I want to try Green Tea Aloe, Margarita and Sex on the Beach... maybe someone will be kind enough to get me the 
Scandle Travelin' Trio -hint, hint ;-)
