Oh-NO Massage Candle

A massage candle with more 'oops' than 'ooh', which leaves behind a flaky residue and a 'film' on skin that must be washed away after use and none of the fragrance that makes massage oils and candles so relaxing to use. The candle is soy based and not hypoallergenic, so care should be taken with the ingredients of this one. Overall the candle was disappointing to use in both smell and sensation, as well as cleanup.

Use



The ONO Massage Candle is quite simple to use, really. Just spark up the wick and sit back to wait for the candle to begin melting. I will give ample warning that the candle was slow to melt, in my case, so it would be prudent to light it at least thirty minutes before use - longer depending on how much skin you plan to cover.

When sufficiently melted, blow out the candle and drizzle onto skin. It would probably be best to hold the candle about six inches from the area of application - if possible just in case the oil/wax is a bit too warm. It does take a fair amount to cover an area due to how thick the liquid is and can then be rubbed into the skin. It leaves behind a faintly film-type sensation on the skin and doesn't absorb all the way, I also found it left behind an unpleasant residue much like normal candle wax.

The ONO Massage Candle is soy based, so those with allergies will want to steer clear of this product. It's other ingredients are; butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, perfume (benzyl benzoate, vanillin).

The particular shea butter, butyrospermum parkii - is obtained from a tree in Africa and is made up mostly of fatty acids particular to skin conditioning. It has no hazards. Apricot kernal oil is rather self explanatory and perfume is the two scents which are supposed to be a part of this candle. The only real allergy hazard is the soy.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

At room temperature the candle is solid and looks and feels as most candles do. When melted, it looks as any other wax but upon use a definite 'heaviness' of the liquid can be discerned. It is thick and smooth, but dries far too quickly and becomes tacky until it dries completely and flakes from the skin. It doesn't absorb very well and leaves behind an almost greasy residue that dries like a film instead of completely soaking into the skin or evaporating off. It is an unpleasant sensation and demands a rinsing of the afflicted area after use - which takes away from the idea of a massage and relaxing to leave the user with almost an "Ew, I need to wash my skin" thought.

Taste / Aroma

I did not try to taste the ONO Massage candle, as sticking something waxy in my mouth is not exactly an idea for foreplay. I imagine it taste like it smells and feels - like wax. The aroma, which is marked to be French Vanilla and Shea Butter is severely lacking in presence. I burnt the candle, imagining it would freshen my room as I waited for it to melt enough to use.

I was disappointed to find when being absent from my room for a period of time, only to return to a slightly pungent smell with none of the warmth of vanilla or relaxant of Shea butter. I wafted my nose above the flame, and was met with the smell of something waxy burning. Like a mere decorative candle. Still I burnt it and poured a bit on my hand to test the consistency - still no smell.

Performance

When I think of massages, I think of something slow paced and steady. Speed isn't in that mental image, but with the ONO candle speed is almost a necessity to make use of the melted liquid before it dries in clumps on the skin. There is no aromatic aspect for this candle either, which takes away from the whole experience of a massage.

Should one choose to go through with the purchase and use of this candle, it will need to be washed before other activities can be engaged in. Unless of course, one isn't bothered by the flaky feel of the dried liquid.
    • Dries up too fast
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water

Packaging



The packaging for the ONO Candle was simple and to the point, I will not say it was discreet - because it is a candle and there isn't much way to be more 'discreet'. The box is recyclable, but the container for the candle is tin and while it can be used for other purposes when the candle is finished - it may otherwise not be recyclable.

Follow-up commentary
Still dislike this. I ended scraping the candle out and using the container itself to stash some necklaces in. It was an incredible disappointment and I couldn't talk myself into using the product again... or trying to.
