Skinny Dip Candles Review & GIVEAWAY!




CLOSED
I really love candles!  Ask anyone who comes to my house, I usually have a candle lit somewhere. So when Karen, Co-Owner of Skinny Dip Candles, told me about her products I could not resist!  She and her daughter Laurel were the first on the market to use pure cosmetic grade ingredients to make "Lotion Candles" and "Message Candles".  What is a lotion candle you ask? It's a 4 in 1 product - Candle, Body Lotion, Message Oil and Body Balm!!!  How awesome is that! Here is some info from there website:

"Skinny Dip Candles are specially formulated to be used as a warm lotion for moisturizing cuticles and dry skin, as well as a massage oil.  Skinny Dip Candles are made with a proprietary blend of high quality, cosmetic-grade soy, avocado oil, coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax, sunflower oil, cocoa butter, vitamin E, and skin-safe essential or fragrance oil.  As an added benefit, the candle in its unmelted state is essentially a body balm. The balm can easily be massaged into dry skin areas when lighting the candle isn't feasible or practical.

 

Due to its unique ingredient composition, a Skinny Dip Candle burns at just over body temperature (about 102 degrees) when melted. . . the temperature of a relaxing, hot bath. Use the Skinny Dip Candle as a warm body moisturizer, or as a soothing treatment for your cuticles, hands, elbows and feet.  You can also use the candle as a massage oil - perfect for couples massage, or for use by professional therapists.  The Skinny Dip Candle can also be used unmelted if desired.  With a solid texture similar to that of a rich body balm, it can easily be massaged into the skin. "




Linda sent me a box of goodies from Skinny Dip Candles!  I opened the box and right away was taken back by the wonderful aroma of sweet smelling products.  I first tried out the Barely There Natural Lip Balm in Wild Berry.  The lip balm glided on with ease and made my lips feel smooth and hydrated.  I actually have been using it every night before bed and when I wake in the morning a little bit of balm is still on - pretty impressive!  I also received Dead Sea Bath Salts.  I have not taken a bath since I got pregnant with my son, so I passed the salts off to my friend that takes a bath everyday (she likes to be pampered!)  She gladly accepted and took the salts home to test out.  She told me how lovely and soothing the smell was and how clean and refreshed her skin felt.  Last but not least is the actual Skinny Dip Candle itself, which I tested out on my husband!  I lit the Black Raspberry Vanilla candle and let it melt a bit.  I blew out the flame and poured the warm lotion all over his back.  I was expecting the melted candle to be very hot, like that of a regular candle but was pleasant surprised that it was just very warm.  I found that a little bit goes a long way too.  Hubby loved the Skinny Dip Candle and promised me that next time it's my turn for a message!  Karen even sent me a travel size Skinny Mini Candle that can be used as lotion when unmelted also.  It fits perfect in my purse! If you are looking for a unique gift I really recommend Skinny Dip Candles!
