I was sent this massage candle to review back in may (i know, im awful for only just writing this review but i do have very good reason, operations and hospital stays)! by the lovely sextoys.co.uk peeps.
The candle is packaged in a very stylish black box with white writing and a swirl of colour which matches the handle on the candle top itself. The candle is housed in a thick black glass jar with a silver top and plastic pinky/purple handle. It looks extremely classy and stylish and i leave my candle out on my bedroom dresser with no worry of anyone coming in and knowing we indulge in a bit of erotic massage every now and then!
The scent of the candle its self is very subtle and light and is neither feminine or mescaline so great for an all round massage oil for either sexes. The candle i found does not burn very evenly at all and has burnt a lot lower down in the center and leaving a large amount of wax around the outside of the candle. which doesnt make for a very economical product on this front.
The idea of massage candles is to play on the senses, at first the flicking candle light, the soft pleasing scent of black pepper and pomegranate to the then warm silky oil that is left to be dripped onto naked flesh.
So how to use the candle, light the candle and let it burn for around 20 to 30 minutes before you plan on giving your massage, once this time is reached blow out the candle and leave for a few mins to let the jar cool. The wax in massage candles is a special wax that is designed to burn at a lower temperature so that when you do pour the lush warm wax over yourself or partner it is, just that warm and not first degree burns kind of warm!
A little doesn't go a long way i have found with my massage candle which is a shame as the packaging and frangrance is so nice that i never want to use it all up, saying that this is a luxury product with a very reasonable price tag of just £19.99 meaning its very affordable to replace.
Two thing i do really like about this product is the fact that the scent is subtle but long lasting and the second thing is it doesn't leave a sheen or sticky residue on my skin. which i have found with lots of other massage products which normally leave me wanting to hit the bathroom soon as the massage is finished!
Bottom line from me...
A lovely classy little product that would go well with a gift of a blind fold and some sexy lingerie for a romantic and imitate time together.
