The Body Shop Vanilla & Tonka Bean Scented Candle

Saturday, October 27, 2012


The other day I saw this post by the lovely Emily, and immediately knew I had to get this candle. You all know by now that I'm a candle fanatic, (it's actually a bit of an addiction), and vanilla is one of my favourite scents, which made it even more appealing. I wasn't going to blog about it, but it's so amazing that I can't not!

When I went to buy this candle, there was a deal on,  so I picked up one for full price (£10) and a second one for £4, which I was very happy about! 
You may already know that I suffer from an anxiety and insomnia, so I'm always looking out for a candle to put on in the evenings or during the night to relax me, which The Body Shop claims this one does. I lit it about half an hour before I went to bed, and the scent just relaxed me completely. It smells gorgeous... I didn't fall asleep any easier, (i don't think that will ever change), but I felt so calm that it didn't really matter. 

I also found that even though I was burning it for quite a a long time it didn't burn down too much, and as the candle is 200g, you can imagine it will last quite a while! 
I'm really impressed with this candle, it could even become my favourite one ever, which is saying something! I'll definitely be picking up a few of these for Christmas presents and will repurchase when mine runs out. I definitely recommend giving The Body Shop's candles a go!
