Afterglow Massage Oil Candle

We found this to be a fantastic addition to our foreplay. It enhanced the mood and offered a unique way to bring some beauty and sensuality to our lovemaking. It is a little bit pricey, but overall, I found it to be a worthwhile investment. If you're looking for a way to bring a bit more romance into your bedroom while not taking away from the passion, this is a great way to do that.
Wonderful smell, great packaging, nice oil.
Takes a while to heat up, a little expensive.

useful review


One of my favorite methods of foreplay is sensual massage. It awakens the senses and prepares the body for love making. The feel of skin-on-skin helps you to connect to your partner in a really fantastic way. The flickering candlelight helps to set the mood and the musky vanilla scent adds to the ambiance. This isn't so much for the quickies, but if you're looking to spend some time exploring your partner's body, sensual massage is wonderful and I found the Afterglow candle to be really helpful. The Afterglow candle is free of paraffin and dye and has a lead-free wick. It also has no phthalates, parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals and animal products which means that it should be acceptable for most skin types.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

When you light the candle, it takes about 30 minutes for the candle to melt into a massage oil. When the oil has melted, you blow out the candle and pour the oil directly onto your partner. I was concerned that it might be too hot, but honestly, it was very nice. The texture of the oil was really delightful and it worked well as a massage oil. It moved silkily over the skin and a little bit went a long way. I didn't find that I needed to add tons of oil to my husband in order to have a nice massage. It didn't leave any kind of sticky residue and it soaked into the skin well. I didn't find that it stained our sheets in any way.

Taste / Aroma

The vanilla scent that I chose was very nice. It's a bit more musky than some of your normal scented candles. It filled the room well, but didn't overpower. When we used the oil, it did have a lingering scent in the skin, but again, it wasn't something that left us gagging later. While it certainly doesn't have a great taste, I didn't find anything objectionable about the taste either.
    • Light smell
    • No taste
    • Smells good


It does take a while for the oil to melt, particularly in the cold weather. I would be interested to see how it holds up in warmer weather. After about half an hour, we were able to use the oil. I loved that we didn't need to use very much for a nice massage and that it soaked into the skin well. I didn't find any need to wash the product off because it soaked into the skin well, but if you don't care for the lingering scent, I could see wanting to remove it.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural
    • Long lasting


The packaging for the product is very nice. Because it is a ceramic candle, the outer packaging is very durable, while not being wasteful. The candle itself is in a very nice container that includes a spout for very easy pouring. I was concerned that it might drip a lot, but I found it to be very neat and tidy. There were detailed instructions included in the package, as well as information about the ingredients.
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Recyclable
    • Would make a nice gift
Follow-up commentary
We've used this several more times, and I still really like it. I haven't noticed any lessening of the scent, which was something that I was concerned about; but instead, it's maintained the same pleasant scent that it started with. I thought that it might not melt and harden over and over, but it's worked without any problems.

This is a great product and definitely worth your time!
