The Body Shop Candles.



The Body Shop - £10 £5

It's no secret, that I love candles. This was one I got for Christmas from my parents, but for some reason didn't get round to doing a review until now. Unfortunately, this candle is now long gone as I was desperate to try it the minute I got home. 

I'd never really thought of buying candles from The Body Shop before, mainly cos I think they are a fairly new addition to their products. But they were doing crazy online offers before Christmas (and actually after) where if you spend £50, you get £25 off - so 50%. I told my mam about it, and she filled up her basket with things for me and the hubby - as he loves the men's skincare range. As she was a little short of £50, I asked for this Mandarin and Tangelo candle. Apparently a Tangelo is a weird shaped orange...I love citrus and fruity smells, and I adore the Mandarin lip balm from The Body Shop so this one was the perfect choice for me. And I certainly wasn't let down, the scent is AMAZING and very much like Body Shop's signature fruity smell. 

I the candles are priced at £10 each, which I think is really reasonable for the quality and the length they burn for and a fab price considering my mam got it for £5. I can't see on the website how long they are supposed to burn for but I would say I got a good 20-30 hours out of it. It burned quite well, without leaving too much excess wax along the way, but I did scrape a little off the sides to get the full amount burned. But other than that, this is amazing value for a lovely candle.

All the candles from The Body Shop are paraffin free, and use essential oils to 'flavour' them. You can check out the rest of the candle range here. I'm lusting after Green Tea and Lemon! 

Have you tried any of these?
