There is nothing I love more than a great massage. They are perfect anytime and are even better after a long, stressful day. I crave the soft touch of a persons fingers and hands on my body. I also really like how my skin feels after the massage. Unfortunately after a massage I feel like have been dipped in a bottle of oil. Everything that my body comes in contact with gets oily. It feels and smells great, but I want something that is light and moisturizes like a lotion. When we received SkinnyDip Candles I was so excited. It was a candle, body lotion, massage oil, and body balm all in one. It was exactly what I was looking for plus more.
As I opened the tin, I was taken away with the awesome aroma of melted chocolate. The Chocolate Decadence candle smelled so yummy and couldn't wait to use it. I lit the candle and prepared the bed and bedroom to treat my hubby to a nice relaxing massage after a long day at work. The room was filled with the warm, soothing scent of chocolate. It wasn't to strong and was creating the perfect atmosphere for a massage. Then I blew out the candle and let the candle cool for a few moments before I took some of the balm out. I scooped some warm oil out with the plastic stick, that was provided, into the palm of my hand. I rub my hands together and was taken away with how soft and silky the oil was. Wasn't oily or sticky. It felt like a lotion or a body balm. It melted into my skin like butter.
I gently applied my oiled hands to his shoulders and back. Slowly moving my hands across his back I could feel how smoothly the oil was going on his skin. Not once did it feel waxy or leave a film on his body. Throughout the entire massage I was able to use the same little amount I started off with. I didn't need to reapply once. I was amazed with how well the oil was working because after massaging his skin over and over it still felt like I could keep massaging him and it wouldn't dry out. It was the best feeling. After the massage my hands and his skin didn't feel greasy and felt totally moisturized. I was very impressed.
I also got to try one of the Pamper packs which included a full size SkinnyDip Sex on the Beach candle, SkinnyDip Sex on the Beach Bath Salts, and a full size Barely There Coconut lip balm that came in a small silver pouch. First I tried the lip balm and was intoxicated by the Coconut scent. It glided on my lips and felt so luscious and velvetty. Wasn't waxy or sticky and lasted a long time. All their lip balms contain only natural ingredients including beeswax, sunflower oil, cocoa butter, shea butter and vitamin E. It doesn't have any mineral oil or petroleum. So you know you are putting only good stuff on your lips.
SkinnyDips Sex on the Beach candle was next. I tried it without lighting the candle this time and used it as a body balm instead. I rubbed a small amount in my skin and was impressed with how well it melted into my skin. Skin was super smooth and felt so rich and luscious. The scent was very light and refreshing. The hint of coconut made me feel like I was sitting on a beach drinking a pina colada. Even hours later I could still smell the erotic scent and my skin felt rich and baby soft.
I was so happy to use the SkinnyDip Sex on the Beach Bath Salts. I enjoy baths so much that I know I was going to be throughly relaxed with the bath salts. The SkinnyDip Bath salts are geniune Dead Sea salts and are known to have a very high mineral content and are very theraputic. I poured the salts under the hot bath water and once in the tub I was totally taken away. The salts destressed and calmed my entire body. It was very relaxing and smelled just like the SkinnyDip candle.
SkinnyDip Candles also offers Skinny Mini's which are miniature sizes of their full size candles. They are perfect for travel or to give to a friend as a small gift. I opened my cute little Skinny Mini tin to the fun, sweet, fruity scent of SkinnyDips Feeling Flirty candle. I took a little of the balm and massaged it into my fingers and cutilces. My cuticles just soaked it up and made them so silky soft. This is a very amazing product.
I totally fell in love with SkinnyDip's Candles and products. They are everything they say they are plus more. They transform you mind, body and soul. Plus my skin has never felt so good after using their products. You definitely need to try them for yourself. Everyone deserves a great massage and these are the best oils for them.
