The Homeware Edit | Imperial Candles & *CANDLE GIVEAWAY*


A few weeks ago, the lovely Imperial Candles got in contact and offered me some of their products to review. They explained that although they are a candle brand, they do things a little differently.

Their candles are made of 100% Natural Soy Wax which is super safe to burn frequently in the home, and they are all hand poured in England. Also, their skincare products are strictly not tested on animals, which I LOVE. Each product that they sell contains an individual jewellery prize worth £2,000 - omgaaad, right?

This is definitely something that I had never heard of before, so I had to get involved. So I let Imperial Candles know my scent preferences, and they sent over a 2 product samples to have a go with!

I was seriously excited to recieve the Midnight Sparkle Bath Bomb* as it's supposed to smell like "fizzy champagne, and sweet pear" - I'm not sure if it was just the colour, but I did get a hint of a berry scent in there too. Despite this, it smelt heavenly. When dropped in the bath, I was quite surprised. It fizzed away at the right speed - so that I was able to enjoy the release of the scents as soon as possible, yet the ball didn't disappear within 0.5 seconds. I have sensitive skin, and the formula was very gentle - so I didn't have any problems with it. Seeing as I am a lil' LUSH addict, I was pleasantly impressed with this little fizzy sphere of fun. I do actually think it's on par with LUSH bombs, which is saying a lot - trust me. 

As the bomb fizzed away, it unveiled a little foil package which held my little piece of jewellery. In this ball, you can randomly receive a ring or necklace - and I got a beautiful little Sterling Silver ring worth £25.00!



Cotton Candy Candle* is a product that guarantees a ring within the candle wax, and you have the option to choose your ring size! As per, I am totally out of the loop as I don't even know my own ring size. So I did spend about an hour online searching various ways to find out what my size was. In the end, I did give up and just went with my gut feeling.

This candle is very sweet, as cotton candy (or as I would call it - Candy Floss, duh) is spun sugar, it does almost smell like sugar itself, with perhaps a hint of something like vanilla. Although it was very strong in the jar, when lit it gave off a subtle sweet smell that wasn't at all overpowering. The double wick helped the candle to burn evenly - meaning you get more burning time, genius! Plus, the overall packaging feels very high end, and I am so involve with the frosted glass patterns - très chic yet fun too.

After about 2 hours of burning the candle, the little foil wrapper began to emerge and I was so excited to fetch it out to see what my jewellery piece was. Pleaseee use tweezers to do this, not your hands, okay! I eagerly picked mine out, and unravelled it to expose such a stunning Sterling Silver with Genuine Gemstone ring worth £45.00.




Overall, I think that this is such a lovely little treat for all you candle lovers out there. Seeing as high end candle brands are relatively expensive, this is a great way to get more from your money. As well as secretly treating yo'self to a little bling too!
