If you’ve read any of my blog posts about home fragrance, you will know my favourite home fragrance product to use is wax melts. Why? They come in a massive range of fragrances, sizes and shapes. I don’t have to worry about using tealights and actual flames, as I can pop them in my electric wax warmers and I find them visually appealing. And these are just a few reasons why I’m a wax melt hoarder and have way too much wax than I should. So am I guilty that I’ve just received my first order from UK based wax vendor Glow? No I am not! But I did want to share with you all what I ordered.
Why did I order?
This is my first order from Glow but not my first experience of their wax. I’m part of their Facebook group, and last year I was surprised and thrilled that the lovely owner Angela had gifted me Glow’s October Subscription Box. This gave me the chance to try the wax out and I was very impressed by each of the pieces. So when I saw in the group some wax melts on the website were on sale for as low as £1.00 in some stunning fragrances, I was powerless! In my defense, I did think of future birthday’s coming up for some of my wax melt lover friends, so a great time to buy one for them and a few for me.
What did I order?
Snap bars in the following fragrances: Pink Dragon Fruit, White Dove, Walking on Sunshine, Paradise Island, Purple Rain Cocktail, White Fairy, Hotel of Dreams, Sleepy, Marine Garden, Sea of Dreams and Parfum Pink Elegance.
Wax Shapes: Cherry Kisses, Honey Wash and Vanilla Caramel.
Including delivery this bundle was around £20.00.
How do they look?
What I love about each of these pieces is they look so different to each other because of how they are coloured. Vibrant, bursting with eye popping shades of blues, greens, yellow, pinks. I think somehow I’ve received a rainbow in a box! And did I mention the shimmers and glitters I can see twinkling in most of this collection? These are eye catching, fun and have that hand made/hand poured type of look that in all honesty you wouldn’t get if you bought the standard wax melts available from a supermarket.
As much as wax snap bars are practical and great to use, I adore a shape or two! And these shaped wax melts are so cute, substantial in size and I can see it will take me a good amount of hours of melting time to use these up!
Normally when I buy wax the first thing I do is give them a big old sniff! I couldn’t do this when these arrived because I wasn’t feeling that great. But now I can sniff away without my head exploding. I bought a good mix of scents within this order and some I can smell without opening them up. Vanilla Caramel has that distinctive vanilla fragrance to it with an almost light coffee undertone to it. Parfum Pink Elegance is that pretty, feminine fragrance you would want to wear thanks to it being a floral with a hint of fruitiness. White Dove is that fresh, clean, soap type scent which I adore and is such a classic and neutral scent.
From what I can smell without putting them on to melt, these smell just as gorgeous as I thought they would. And genuinely I can’t wait to use them!
In one word YES! Glow’s wax melts are easy on the eye and playful in appearance, excellent quality and fragrances on cold (un-melted) are perfect. I am beyond happy with this little order, and I know others who have or are ordering will be too. Tempted? Head over to their website here because at the time of writing this post, there were still wax melts which were on special offer price wise. Enjoy!
