Each box comes with a card detailing the items included and the theme.
Scent from The Alps Candle in Spice – Value $15?
This candle has a 40 hour burn time. This scent isn’t what I was expecting from “Spice.” It’s a little more perfumy/soapy than I would have liked, but still a nice scent. (Just don’t go into it expecting cinnamon, that’s what the next candle is for!)

Shearer Candle Tin in Cinnamon Spice – Value $6.50
This tin candle has a 20 hour burn time and it’s exactly what you’d expect from a Cinnamon candle – it reminds me of the holidays!
Kikkerland Cotton String Lights – Value $10
These battery operated string lights are so cute!
The patterns they cast when lit up are great, too:
Shearer Candles Spice Natural Spa Hand & Body Lotion – Retail Value $17.50 (On Sale for $6)
This lotion matches the same scent as the main candle. It is described as “a warm and exotic blend with a hint of patchouli and cedar.” The lotion is pretty thin, and absorbs quickly but didn’t really moisturize my skin. This is good if you are looking for perfume, but not your best bet if you want hydration.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $37.50 (using the sale price of the lotion). I think that’s good for the $31.38 cost, especially considering this box has free shipping from the UK. I also really like the idea of mixing candles and a home item or two. My favorite scent this month is the cinnamon spice – I wish it was the main candle!
