Babeland - Afterglow Candle



I love massage oils, and I've heard of massage candles, but I have never used one before. So when I had a chance to review Babeland's Afterglow Candle, I couldn't resist. It goes well with the rest of my candle collection. I have candles of voudou goddesses I call my Santeria candles, and I light them all the time. They came in very handy when the power went out during a storm recently.

The Afterglow Candle is a nice votive-sized candle, and it comes with its own very classy box of black matches with white tips, and a fab brush for spreading the oil on yourself or your partner. The candle lit without a problem, and it burned very evenly, which is important when you are talking about candles.

You get four scents: Fig Leaf, Bourbon, Pink Lotus, and Black Currant. I received Pink Lotus, and I love it! It's so delicate and subtle. Black Currant was out of stock, and that one would have been my second choice. I love Asian scents. Pink Lotus reminds me of the Japanese stick incense that I burn on occasion. My two favorites are White Cloud and Kyoto Cherry Blossom. They are as delicate and subtle as Pink Lotus.

I was happy to see that I didn't have to use a lot of the massage oil to do the job properly. My husband and I like to watch movies and TV while giving each other hand and foot massages. After typing and writing articles all day, my shoulders hurt. I also love foot rubs. My husband has arthritis in his hands, which is why I wanted this Afterglow Candle in the first place. The oil was not greasy, and it absorbed into the skin very easily. We didn't feel like we needed a shower after using it. And it glided on oh so well! I massaged away the ache in his hands, and he rubbed my arches until I was putty in his hands. God, I love a good foot rub!

The warm oil in this candle lasts for a very long time, and it smells divine. I love the delicate scent of the Pink Lotus. Plus the glass candle holder works for votive lights once the massage candle is used up. I will definitely get more of these massage candles once the oil runs out. Plus they make great gifts for the holidays.
