Smells great, Light Scent, Makes skin supple
No Spout, Easily Spilt, Takes a long time to resolidify
The Ono Message Candle is 4.4 oz candle that seconds as a message oil. This candle can work for a variety of people, those looking for a light massage oil to those wanting a fragrant mood candle. The tin that the candle comes in does provide an excellent canister for those wanting a more undercover candle. I bought mine for a candle I could leave out in the open without anyone juding me based off of it. It worked great, for this and I have even recieved compliments on my cute candle. I like to use this to set a nice sensual ambiant, using it with other lit candles, then once its melted down a bit using it as the message oil.
At first the candle comes as a lumpy white thick looking bit of wax. As it begins to melt down it becomes a smooth oil. The oil is exactly that oily, but it does soak into the skin very nicely. It does leave a slight sheen against the skin as it soaks. Once it has soaked into a skin it leaves the skin supple and very smooth. A small amount goes a very long way with this, just dabbing my finger in I can do my entire hand with no problem. The canister makes it hard to pour but the oil itself is easily spread. It has a light feeling once it has been rubbed into the skin, unike some oils that can feel as if the are always on the skin. Washing it off is simple and a small amount of warm water and soap easily causes it to come off.
I purchased the Vanilla and Shea butter scented candle. When the candle is first opened it as a strong scent but it doesn't spread through the room. While burning the candle also only has a faint scent, not until it is rubbed onto the skin doe the smell come out fully, but even so it is still extremely light. The candle is not for taste, and I would not recomend it. It tastes simply like plain wax. You can't really smell the Shea butter, but the vanilla is soft and sweet giving it a gentle scent.
When you first light the candle to get enough to do a full body massage it takes roughly an hour, so I wwould light the candle a while before knowing I would use it. It really isn't the best for a spur of the moment encounter. Cleaning up as I stated earlier is very easy, unless you spill it onto fabric. I dropped my candle onto the floor and am still picking wax out of the carpet. The candle does seem to last a long time since a small amount of melted wax will go a long way. It also takes a bit of time for the wax to resolidify so make sure to watch out even after some time to prevent spills. I wouldn't recomend leaving this out after use if you have dogs, this is how mine spilled, or children that like to bounce around. It does help to leave the skin feeling hydrated with a light scent of vanilla.
The candle comes in a black with urple and white accents metal container. It is 4.4 oz, and has a slide on lid. The lid makes it easy to take off, you can also leave the lid off and keep the candle open as a decoration in a house. The candle also comes with a set of directions, these are basic and typical to most candles saying don't leave unattended, or with playing children. There is no spout on the candle and this makes pouring it out a bit difficult.
Follow-up commentary 4 months after original review
I still enjoy using this candle it has long since run out which can be a bit disappointing. It lasted for about 4 uses, but it did get spilled so it may have lasted longer with better circumstances. The smell is one of my favorites and my partner also loves it. It moisturizes while you use it making it a wonderful addition.
