Review and Giveaway: Scandle CLOSED



My husband and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary yesterday. We watched our wedding video and it brought back the rush - the anticipation and excitement - of the Big Day. It seems like just yesterday we were boarding our cruise ship and heading to the Caribbean on our first trip as husband and wife. But maybe that's because we had a little help recapturing the magic of our honeymoon, thanks to Scandle.

Scandle is an innovative product that combines the compelling scent of a candle with the comfort of a massage lotion. They may resemble a simple soy candle but the wax melts just two degrees above body temperature, transforming into luxurious skin care or massage oil. Light it to fill the room with its aromatherapeutic properties, set the mood as a spa or massage candle or simply scoop it out and use it as a vitamin-rich body moisturizer. Not only is Scandle healthy for your skin, but it is also environmentally-friendly. Scandles:
  • are vegan
  • contain all-natural, FDA-approved ingredients, including shea butter, cosmetic grade soy butter, jojoba, vitamin E, & body safe fragrance or essential oils
  • feature a cotton wick with no lead, zinc or stearic acid
  • contain no petroleum
  • are free of UV inhibitors
  • emit less soot and toxins than parrafin candles
  • are individually handpoured
From tantalizing fragrances like Love Spell or Sex on the Beach to yummy treats like Oatmeal Milk & Honey or Fig & Brown Sugar, there's a scent to suit your every mood. Below is a video demonstrating how Scandle works:



I had the pleasure of reviewing a Scandle Travel Tin (ARV $12.95) and Dead Sea Salt Scrub (ARV $17.95) in their brand new limited edition Copa Cabana scent. (Go ahead...try not to hum the song...) As the name implies, it perfectly captures the essence of summertime with top notes of creamy coconut and vanilla and base notes of tropical fruits.

We decided that our anniversary was the perfect time for a couples massage so we put our Scandle to good use. I love that it burns clean so I don't have to worry about smoke or stains in our new home. The beachy smell is fantastic and really takes you away to paradise, if only in your mind. The wax didn't burn or make me wince when it slowly dripped on my skin; it was completely comfortable. The lotion was moisturizing and easy to rub in yet it didn't leave me feeling like an oil slick. I could roll right over and go to sleep without worrying about sticking to my sheets. We enjoyed our massages so much that my husband and I agreed we should make it a monthly event. Maybe even weekly. I also liked the reusable silicone band that can double as a rubber bracelet when the tin is empty.

The Dead Sea Salt scrub was the perfect complement to the candle. Used prior to the massage, it helped to exfoliate and smooth my skin while locking in the sexy scent.

Bottom line: Whether you want to spoil yourself with a sensual massage or get an enviable mani/pedi, you need to get Scandle-ous.
