I love natural products. They`re safer to use and still always a new experience with each product. Recently I was contacted by Scential Soys about checking out a couple of their products to review. Needless to say, I was quite thrilled to accept their invitation!
Scential Soys sells 100% natural candles and products which is what originally caught my attention to their company. Their candles are made with natural ingredients such as jojoba, vitamine E, shea butter and soy butter. I was sent their Body Massage Candles (1 large, 1 small) and their Body Lotion Bar. First thing I tried was their massage candle. I love the jar the large one comes in. The shape is unique and can actually be re-used again in the future when you`re done with the candle. Maybe for another candle or just a jar to hold odds and ends. Definitely a plus for me considering I love re-using candle jars for crafts and such.
The candle itself smells great! The smell is soft and subtle, yet smells really good. It`s not an over powering smell. So those with sensitive noses should be able to handle this. When being used as a massage candle (or oil in that stage) it feels gentle on the skin. At the initial thought, it sounds like it could be painful, but in all honesty it`s not. This is something I wouldn`t lie about for sure because I hate pain. It`s more of a relaxing experience. The after affect from the candle (or oil if you want to call it that in that phase) leaves your skin feeling smooth and relaxed. Kind of like a warm lotion massage if you will.
The body lotion bar reminds me of a jumbo sized chap stick by it`s shape and container. In fact, at first appearance you`d think it was chap stick until you actually touched it. The difference between this lotion and chap stick other than the obvious one is lotion and one is for your lips, is the texture. Unlike most chap sticks, the texture on the lotion is smooth. I mean extremely soft and smooth. The scent is wonderful as well! Again, it`s a subtle gentle smell, but enough to make you smell and feel fresh!
So what are my overall thoughts? I received some wonderful products that work very well. They`re made of high quality natural ingredients that make me feel great. I enjoy the candles and lotion alike and think you would too. They`re great products plus safe for you and the environment, how much better can it get? If you have ever tried these products I`d love to hear about it in a comment below! What`s your take on 100% natural candles?
