Light Me Up!

I love the feel of the Afterglow candle by JimmyJane. It left my skin very soft and got rid of a lot of the dry skin that I had. The only big issue that I had was with the scent. I didn't like how masculine the bourbon scent was. I would stay away from this if you are allergic to scents because it is very strongly scented.
Great smooth texture, Not at all greasy or waxy, No residue left on skin
Masculine Scent

The Afterglow candle by JimmyJane comes packaged in typical JimmyJane packaging. It comes in a cardboard box, which is kind of elegant looking, with a picture of the candle on the front of the box. It has a gray stripe around the box with the product name on it, and it features some very minimal information on the candle on the outside of the box.

When you open the box, the top flap will say "Melt Me" in white lettering with a red background. There is a small booklet that is set on top of the candle which is your user manual. It has a picture of the candle on the front with the Afterglow name and the JimmyJane logo.

Inside the manual, you will find everything you need to know about the candle. It includes how to use your Afterglow candle. It suggests that you burn your candle for 30 minutes before your initial use of the candle, so the wax/oil will evenly burn. Otherwise, you won't get the candle to burn evenly again unless you burn it for a suspended amount of time. The manual also features some basic info on what the candle in made from and what it doesn't contain. Farther into the manual, you will find all the scents that Afterglow come in and their ingredients.

Underneath the manual is a gorgeous candle that looks elegant and grown up. It comes in a ceramic, white container. It features a nice little pour spout that is great for pouring the wax/oil onto your skin or your partner's skin. It has the JimmyJane logo on the side of the square holder.

The Afterglow candle doesn't have paraffin or dye. It doesn't have any phthalates, parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, or animal products. Afterglow isn't tested on animals either which I found awesome. Your candle should burn for up to 32 hours depending on how much wax is used each time.

The Afterglow candle does has a very strong scent, so if you are allergic to scents, I would probably stay clear of this. I got the candle in the Bourbon scent, and to me, it doesn't smell very much like Bourbon but a bit more like fire wood. It has more of a masculine scent. If you are looking for something great and manly to use for your partner, this would be a great buy. The scent also lingers on the skin and can be noticed by people that are a distance of about 10 feet away.

The candle has a very nice smoothness to the wax/oil. I didn't find it sticky or greasy in any way. It sank into the skin very quickly, so I did notice that it was necessary to re-apply after a short time of use. We used the candle with the Contour M (also made buy JimmyJane), and it worked great! The wax/oil left my skin very soft afterward; there was no greasy residue or waxy residue to remove afterward. I just had very soft skin. The wax/oil didn't irritate my skin in any way which was nice. I have very sensitive skin which gets irritated quite easily, but I had no problems with this candle.

I do intend to buy more of the Afterglow candles. I will probably buy the sampler so that I will have a better idea of what scent works best for us. The Bourbon scent was just a little too masculine for me to leave on my skin, but I am looking forward to trying the other scents.

TIP: I also use this candle as a moisturizer on my really rough patches. For example: Use it on your heels, and put some socks on over it, and it will leave your heels nice and soft. Try it on rough patches on your skin; it works really great for dry skin.
Follow-up commentary
I will always go to my Afterglow candles after a long hard day at work. I line the tub with them and take a relaxing bath, once I get out I have enough oil melted to hydrate and make my skin smell and feel amazing.

    Purposely making the room, and your body, smell like booze . . . just wow. I think I'll try grapefruit or something instead! Great review.

    The sampler package is definitely worth trying. Good review.

    @ToyGeek It actually doesn't smell anything like Bourbon ... It smells more like a fire in the fireplace... with that smokey wood scent. It didn't resemble booze at all.

    @Mistress Kay I am definitely going to give it a shot... I love the texture of the candle just not the scent.
