Choco/Chili? Don't Be Silly.

I am not going to make this mistake again! Chump-change products like this are great to try something new, but lessen the blow when, as in this case, a purchase just does not work out! We both agreed that we hated the thick and greasy feeling of this candle. What a disappointment that it did not even melt down all the way to at least try on other body parts. Maybe massage candles just aren't for us in general, but for now THESE candles are not for us, and we'll give other brands a try.
Subtle scent, low melting point, natural ingredients, portable size, lowest price
Greasy feeling, too thick, did not burn evenly, package not very protective, very small.

As the included "How To Use" says: "Light it up and let it melt!"
Besides the cliched romanticism of having lit candles at the bedside, these little tea-light sized candles are meant to get involved as part of the sensual action. After lighting and allowing them to melt down into a puddle of massage-ready oil, one must blow out the flame to let it cool enough to drizzle onto your massage mate. Tempting as it is for the sadist in me to use it while it is hot, I understand that the heat can often be both too intense to be pleasant and dangerously close to burn temperature, landing anywhere from 115 to 130 degrees Fahrenheit. There is no listed burn time on the package, but I would not expect these to burn for more than a couple hours maximum.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Cold, the candles look just like regular white tea lights, but they will give to your finger when pressed on, and mush into a creamy, greasy salve. Melted, the oil/wax acts like regular candle wax, and thicker like syrup once the candle is blown out and let to cool before pouring. On the skin, this wax is like thick lotion that won't soak in. It is not at all conducive to a good massage for us, it seems to grab the skin rather than allowing hands to glide over the skin. It was sticky and unpleasant to feel, like wiping petroleum jelly or Vick's vapor rub over the skin... Only I think I prefer both to the feeling of... this. It felt like you had to use too much just to get a good layer down, and did not cover nearly enough skin once it was pretty much all used up.

Taste / Aroma

Upon opening this very simply packaged little candle, I got absolutely zero scent off of it. The inner package is completely null of scent and the cardboard sleeve has a slight scent to it. You must peel off the top and really put your nose in to get the full scent without lighting it. Unlit, despite the chili or chocolate scent, it smells more like sweet perfume to me than a sweet and spicy treat that I had been imagining. I believed I would probably die if I tried to taste it. Not because it isn't safe, but I imagined it really does not taste good. In reality it tastes mostly like it smells with a disgusting soap taste left over.... My bad for putting my mouth where this product has been. Lit up, it still doesn't put out much of a scent. Not even a room-full.

This product looked as though it would last about 2 or 3 hours as a normal tea light would, however it did not even burn for an hour before the flame began to wane. This was before the entire candle had even melted down all the way, and barely melted enough to use! Nearly 3/4 of the candle were left in the tin before the wick had all but had it. I put it out after that in order to cut my losses and use the wax/oil which HAD melted. Ugh! It was terrible. I only got one drizzle of nice warm wax onto my love's back. It did not spread well, it felt so gross. We just ended up wiping it all off, the small blessing was that it cleaned up easily by wiping it off with a warm, damp rag. That is to say, it didn't last very long at all. The smell ended up to be the only benefit the candle provided, but I can buy pretty scented tea lights for a tenth of the price! Why bother with this!

The packaging for this massage candle is very minimal and simple.
I was concerned for the potential of a massage oil candle to melt in transit, figuring this sort of candle would have a relatively low melting point. After reading on a few candle-making websites, it looks the average melting point listed for the soy based candles is about 120-130 degrees Fahrenheit, which would be a problem if you planned on storing this in the sunny window of a parked car in the middle of July. In this case, the packaging would offer very, very little protection for the candle and would probably allow melted wax to flow freely. This is because there is no plastic wrapper, it is only a simple tin, capped with a purple sticker, with a piece of cardboard fastened round it. The package is very discreet, nothing overtly sexual or obscene on it, only usage suggestion and ingredients. It's actually very cute packaging.

Follow-up commentary
"I've started to like it more"...but only marginally so. I found the spent candle on the nightstand the other day and, having just bought a new wax warmer, thought "Might as well beat this dead horse." I put the tin into my wax warmer, which quickly and evenly melted down the residual wax from the candle...essentially giving it a new life after the wick totally burned down. This left a great puddle of warm wax that I could pour better over my love's back. The texture was still pretty ooky, but there was good heat and more lubrication generated from the added wax. And in the end, we still were scrambling to wipe off once the massage was over. I can say that the only redeeming part of the experience is that moment of drizzling hot/warm wax onto a stretch of skin.
