First of all, sorry for the long delay between reviews everyone!! It has been a busy couple of months. I’m ready to dive back into things now though and reviews should be coming at you on the regular again!
For my first review back, I have the ONO Massage Candle from Tabu Toys in the French Vanilla scent. They also carry this candle in Red Mandarin. Massage candles have quickly become a widely available item in the sex toy world ranging in scents form the basic to the exotic. The best ones are made with soy wax and shea butter and leave the skin feeling soft and moisturized after use.
This massage candle fits right into that category. The ingredients listed on the package are: Glycine soja (soy) wax, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, and perfume (benzl benzoate, vanillin). The wax is white and melts to a clear color. The scent is straight-forward french vanilla. And the directions? They couldn’t be more simple…remove the cap, light the candle, enjoy the scent, use when ready (waiting 30 seconds after blowing the candle out before use). The directions are on the box as well as on an insert tucked into the cap in a total of four languages.
I find that the minimum time to burn this candle to get enough wax for a nice massage is about 25 minutes. This will give you a couple tablespoons of wax. The wax glides easily under hand but is thick and absorbs quickly so that you aren’t just rubbing it in like lotion. I personally find this to be a positive thing because it makes for a firmer rub down while not being too rough. Afterwards the skin is deeply moisturized and not sticky at all. The scent of french vanilla is present but it isn’t overwhelming
The only thing I don’t love about massage candles is that they are an item that requires planning. You can’t spontaneously use a massage candle because it takes time to melt enough wax to use. And if you’re having spontaneous sex? Well, you’ll probably be done before there’s enough wax. When you do plan for them though, they can be a sensual addition to your sex session.
I like this massage candle as well as its sleek black container. I’d love to see who the Red Mandarin smells as well. Tabu Toys has these candles for a great price and in 4.4 oz containers they will last a long time. If you haven’t tried massage candles in the bedroom yet, this is a great place to start!
Thanks to Tabu Toys for providing this product free for an honest review.
