Review | Burt's Bees Eucalyptus Mint Soy Wax Melts

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

Spotted these at Target awhile back and thought how cool this idea is! Burt's Bee's is one of my favorite brands and to see them come out with soy candles and wax melts? I mean, how could this go wrong?! There were so many yummy scents to choose from!

I had originally picked up two but went with just Eucalyptus Mint in the end just to test it out. I was in need of a new calming scent since I was running low on my Bath & Body Works candle. 

The thing I like about soy versus wax is how much stronger the scent is and I feel like they just burn better. Wax lately has given off a burning scent I'm not a fan of. It might just be me or the products I'm using but I've found myself shying away from wax products as of late. Especially in candle form.

How cute is this detail?! I was so tickled to flip it over and have it look like a honeycomb! I mean it's Burt's Bee's, sure, but I don't know. I wasn't really expecting this!

On cold sniff it gave off a nice cooling and relaxing scent. I got more Eucalyptus than I did Mint.

Popping it out of the mold however was a different story.

The texture was very soft and a bit difficult to pop out. It crumbled more than anything. I burned it in my melt warmer from Yankee Candle that I keep in my room (why don't they sell empty plastic tubs?!). 

I had no issues personally with the smell, I kinda liked it. But it was stronger than most others I've used. My boyfriend however, who was in the living room could smell it from there and wasn't a fan. I don't think my cat was a fan either as she was rolling around on the bed which is right next to the bookcase I have the warmer on lol.

Overall, I did enjoy the way this product melted and its scent throw. It's just others in the household weren't a fan of the scent itself. Vanilla Honey and Lavender Fields are next on my to-try list!

Have you tried out any of Burt's Bee's candles? Which one did you like the best?
