Diamond Candles Review
I love soy candles because I hate toxins and soy candles burn more cleanly than other candles that give off fumes and soot. Plus, soy candles are vegan – and since I'm a vegetarian , I like that a lot. I also love that the wicks are lead free. Having a little guy in the house has taken my anti-chemical frenzy to a whole new level and burning regular candles has made me worried about the toxins. Soy candles usually seem out of my budget as I've only ever seen small ones for sale for around ten dollars a jar.
When I found out about Diamond Soy Candles I was intrigued by their awesome scent options which really appealed to my creativity – I get super bored with the same old "melon", "lilac" and "vanilla" options and always want to find something a bit more off-beat. Diamond Candles to the rescue! They offer scents like Cozy Cabin, Pomegranate Lemonade, Cupcake, and Carnival Candy.
Bling The best part thing about Diamond Candles? Every Diamond Candle comes with a ring inside – ranging in value from $10.00 to $5,000 – so …. every time you buy a diamond candle you're also buying a chance to win an awesome diamond ring. Sweet You can see tons of fun fan photos of their diamond treasures on the Diamond Candles facebook page !
A large Diamond Candle sells for $24.95- that may seem steep for a candle but I absolutely couldn't believe how HUGE these candles are. The candles are just under 3 lbs and are 3.5 inches wide and about half a foot tall. The size of these candles makes the $24.95 price tag a really good deal. You can't buy candles this big – and not nice soy candles in jars. These would make an absolutely terrific gift for mother's day, a birthday, anniversary or valentine's day.
In exchange for my honest review, I received the Carnival Candy Diamond Candle to sample. It's the perfect scent for summer and smells incredible – exactly like cotton candy… Plus, my candle burns evenly and slowly – which I love !When I burn it, I am reminded of summer carnivals my husband and I went to when we first started dating. I haven't burned down to the ring yet but I can see it in the jar and we can't wait to see what it is!
Diamond Candles are $24.95 for a 3lb candle – and each candle comes with a ring ranging in value from $10.00 to $5,000 !
Another super long lasting candle I love is from Uncommon Goods , a 60 Hour Candle: an all natural beeswax coiled candle that lasts forever and looks really steampunk too !
