I do pop into Primark quite a bit, at least once a week. I spend my time mostly regretting taking the kids with me as I have a look around what’s new. We follow Primark on our Instagram pages for added inspiration to visit. Here’s my latest homeware wants (and needs!) Read More
Much like the M&S Cotton Candy Grapes being a must have for bloggers everywhere, you must have seen this Lime Light Soda Candle online a lot recently…
I had banned myself from buying candles from Primark after a number of bad candles, but I always look and sniff and there was no way I couldn’t get this candle! It smelled so good.
There was obviously lime but it was zingy, very much like soda fizz. For £3 I thought it was worth the risk and guess what… no tunneling and the smell continued to get more and MORE intense the further down the candle burned.
We both love Primark (or Penneys to Sam in Ireland) for its bargains and copies of other higher priced items on the high street. We especially love their new range of make up and nail polish called PS Love. In particular we love the mascara range for such a bargain price. However, candles from Primark have always been a bit of a letdown and we haven’t learnt the lesson sadly. On a recent Primark splurge we both bought candles, I bought the Red Berry & Jasmine tin because it was the only one that I got a real smell from in the shop. At the bargain price of £1.50, was it even worth that?
The packaging was pretty plain with the paper insert in the top of the candle and the strip of paper around the tin. Slightly annoying thing but you can’t really grumble at this price, was the price label left the tin sticky. Nothing major but it was very icky to pick up. I had the candle lit for two hours and already it had started to tunnel down and the hot wax wasn’t reaching the outside of the tin. Another two hours still going and it was a little better but I’d had the candle lit for four hours now. There was a vague flowery smell but nothing I could locate to jasmine or red berry.
As our hauls and product features are quite popular we thought it’d be fun to share with you all the products that we bought and burned (or melted) each month. We’re not in any way bragging and we’re grateful for every ounce of wax we have but we all know how much candle junkies love seeing what others use or where they shop.
