One treat I loved as a kid was getting the toy at the bottom of the cereal or Cracker Jack box. Didn't you? What I'm about to show you the grownup girl's version! Enter Diamond Candles. I was sent one and it's quickly become my favorite candle. I'm burning it right now as I'm writing this!
Did someone say Hawaiian Coconut? I'm in.
Let me introduce you to these awesome natural, made-by-hand soy candles. You're gonna want one. Or ALL 26 OF THEM. Twenty-six scents like Carnival Candy, Cupcake, Fresh Snow, Dusk, Cinnamon Bun, Pomegranate Lemonade, Sunwashed, and Tropical Retreat, just to name a random few. There's something for everyone--seriously, check it out.
While I personally want to buy these for myself (greedy!), Diamond Candles make excellent gifts. What a cute idea to give a soon-to-be-bride! Or for the birthday girl. It's three gifts in one--when you're through with the candle, you can reuse the glass jar!
Every candle has a ring hidden inside worth $10 to $5000! How fun is that? Check out their story:
I was given Hawaiian Coconut ($24.95) to review and if you've read this blog at all, you'll know coconut is one of my favorite smells EVER! But so many coconut candles smell artificial & odd. I was happily carried away to the delicious smell of Hawaiian Coconut as soon as I lit it. I've had it for over a month and the smell is still just as strong as day 1! Also, I'm a big candle fan but have to give many away due to the candle giving me a sinus headache or migraine. Diamond Candles don't aggravate my allergies, whew!
So the candle smells great, but let's talk about the fun part: the ring! As you can see, wrapped in foil is a ring hidden in the candle that's worth $10-5000. What ring will you get? How much is it worth?
the waiting is the hardest part
It took me around 6 hours (I burned the candle over a few days) until the candle melted enough for me to reach the foil. Using a pair of tweezers, I carefully pulled the foil package out and waited for it to cool. I was too excited & clumsy to take pics of this part, but I know you can picture it. And then, I unwrapped it. Here's what I got:
You want one, right? Yes!
