Rose de Mai Skin Smoothing Massage Candle from Oskia (£34.50) | Available from Space NK
Is it a candle? Is it a treatment oil? Is it a massage balm? Well, amazingly, the Oskia Rose de Mai Skin Smoothing Massage Candle is all these things and is utterly divine! Not only can you enjoy the gorgeous scent of the finest May Rose as you burn this candle but you can look forward to a treat for the body and soul once the wax has melted.
Made using the purest natural ingredients including beeswax, nourishing soya bean and coconut oil, this candle is packed full of skin smoothing omegas, vitamins and minerals to soften and soothe your body and leave it beautifully scented for hours afterwards. The oil can also be used as a massage oil or a face treatment to heal, nourish and replenish the skin for a heavenly treat when your complexion needs a loving boost. Before I gave this candle a whirl I read, and re-read the instructions, as I was slightly hesitated about entering into a lit candle/hot wax/naked skin situation. But this candle is incredibly easy, simple and safe to use. I decided to jump into a nice, long bubble bath as the candle flickered and filled the room with a heady, floral aroma. After my bath I blew the flame out and poured the melted wax into my hands and massaged it onto my skin for an indulgent ending to my pamper session. Due to the low melting point of the natural waxes the oil will never get too hot and feels very comfortable and silky as you apply it – as I tied my fluffy white robe I felt like I had just stepped out of a lavish spa treatment! This is such a nice treat for yourself or someone you know who is in need of a little TLC – a fabulous, fun little twist on the classic candle that will soothe body and soul beautifully.
