Body massage candle by PicoBong

Add resource

A Pico Bong let down.

I’ve used a number of massage candles and had high hopes for this one, but over all felt let down by PicoBong. While the packing was convenient and attractive, I found the burn and the texture to be displeasing.

Use

This product is used for external use only! It is a burn and use massage candle to be used alone or with a partner(s). My experience with this candle left something to be desired. I use massage candles for massage with my husband and apply as lotion after a bath. I found this candle to be not suitable for either use.

It takes a while for a pool of wax to form after burning. Normally with a slow burn I expect a wide burn, but this candle just “dug a hole” in a the wax. This is my biggest pet peeve for a candle, because I feel like it is wasted money, since I don’t melt down extra wax and make new candles. It also makes the candle unattractive during the burning the time. The Pico Bong travel massage candle doesn't provide a warm glow, but small bright burn. So if you want to use it to crate ambiance you might need a few actual tea lights to go with it.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This is a thicker massage candle leaving a greasy and coated feeling on my hands after use. When applied it had a warm silky feel to it, but it began to dry very quickly and left behind residue. I had to wash my hands and my partner's back after.
    • Creamy
    • Greasy
    • Thick

Taste / Aroma

Scents
Coco/Chili – dry, syrupy. A very sweet dark chocolate or Caramel. I could not pick up on the chili.

Livin' La vida Coco- This scent was sweet, the vanilla is much stronger than the coconut.

Don't Worry Be Apple - This is a sweet apple cinnamon scent that isn't made sharper or dyer by the cinnamon. It reminds me more of baked goods!

The candle is soy-based, and made up of Glycine soja (soy wax), Butrosperum parkii (Shea butter), prunus armeniaca (apricot) Kernel oil, perfume


I wouldn't try to eat this.

Performance

It takes a while for a pool of wax to form after burning. Normally with a slow burn I expect a wide burn, but this candle just “dug a hole” in a the wax. This is my biggest pet peeve for a candle, because I feel like it is wasted money, since I don’t melt down extra wax and make new candles.

Packaging

I find PicoBong to have very attractive designs and this candle is no exception. It is small (.5 oz ) and comes in a cardboard sleeve and the soy wax is formed into a small tea light with a peel away top. They are fantastic for travel and to go. Just toss a few in your bathroom bag or suitcase, they are not likely to break. The scents are light and attractive.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense
