Diamond Candle Review + Giveaway! (CLOSED)


Hey guys! 
Today I bring you an exciting post. A while back, Diamond Candles contacted me and wanted me to review their candles and also host a GIVEAWAY! Why not, right? Who doesn't want a nice smelling candle with a surprise gift? Let's get on to the review...


Diamond Candles are an eco-friendly company and make their all natural candles out of soy. In every candle, you will find a ring worth $10, $100, $1,000, or $5,000. Which, I think is a great twist to include in an ordinarily boring candle. It's actually pretty exciting (even if you don't find a $5,000 ring inside).


The scent I chose for myself is in Cupcake. This scent is sweet and does remind me of cupcakes. The smell of the candle was fairly strong at first, but over time seemed to dissipate.



When you look at the back of the candle, you will notice a gold sticker. This is where you should find your ring. I say "should"because that wasn't the case for me. lol (Watch my YouTube video below)


The idea behind getting the ring out is to just wait until you've burned the candle far enough down to simply scoop the ring out with a spoon.... "AINT NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!" Obviously, Brandon and I were impatient and ended up scooping all of the candles contents out onto a plate. The ring in my candle ended up being at the very bottom. It was actually a lot of fun searching for it. At first, I thought I didn't even get a ring in my candle!


After we got the ring out, I tried to do my best to salvage the candle by replacing all of the wax back into the jar. Like new! Kinda... lol What a mess.


And here's the ring I found in my Diamond Candle. Obviously, it's not a diamond. It's a total fake, but I think it's cute. I love the idea behind hiding a little treasure in a candle. It's not much, but it's fun. 

Overall, I think these candles would be a cute gift for someone on a special occasion or even as a treat for yourself. Since the candle is all natural, don't expect the scent to be super overpowering (which can be good or bad depending on your taste). I received the candle about a month ago and I still haven't finished burning it. I've burned it nearly every day and am about 3/4 done. I think this is a cute idea and would be fun to share with friends or family. I hope you enjoyed the review and pics! Don't forget to watch the video to see us destroy find my ring in the candle :P

NOW FOR THE REALLY FUN PART!!!
