Raise your hands if winter has been tough on your skin! Or rather don’t raise them if your cuticles look a bit dry and less than pretty. I can’t believe how much my skin changes during the winter, especially since moving to Cape Town and experiencing these bitterly cold winters. I’ve been lathering on creams and oils like a crazy woman! So when I recently received the Theravine Lemon Zest Massage Candle, I was pleased as punch. I’d seen reviews that this candle is fabulous not only for massaging tired muscles, but that it’s very moisturizing and soothing on the skin as well. Let’s just say – the reviews are not wrong!
Who is Theravine?
Theravine was launched in 2004 with a mission to combine scientific research with high quality products and innovation. On top of being a local brand, Theravine products are both kind to your skin and the environment. Their products do not contain any harmful alcohols, harmful perfumes or fragrances, colourants or petrochemicals. Additionally, they are also not tested on animals. Do I need to give any further reasons to try this proudly South African brand?
The Theravine Lemon Zest Massage Candle
The Theravine Lemon Zest Massage Candle is a 100% natural synergistic blend of plant waxes (including superior soy wax instilled with an active nano-emulsion liposome Cacao extract) and butters and is infused with plant botanicals.
The candle also has a beautiful scent-it contains refreshing citrus infused aromas of Lime, Sweet Orange and Lemongrass. I love the smell of the room when I have the candle lit and I’m waiting for the wax to melt. It smells divine! The scent also lingers on your skin for quite a while afterwards, yet at the same time doesn’t have that overpowering scent that some massage candles do.
Something I find great about the formulation of this candle is that the wax doesn’t get extremely hot. In fact, it’s perfectly warm. I find some massage candles get really hot and then if you pour that onto your skin..well let’s just say relaxation will be quickly fleeting and you’ll end up in a worse mood. However with the Theravine Lemon Zest Massage Candle, the wax never gets too hot.
And say goodbye to those dry, tired hands
If your hands are feeling a little dry (especially around the cuticles) something that really works well is to massage some of the oil into your cuticles and your hands. I find the oil is so soothing and really hydrates the skin on the hands really well. Even try your luck and try get someone to give you a hand massage!
It’s time to start thinking about Christmas gifts…
So when I first saw this and started using it- I immediately thought how many ladies in my life would LOVE this! I think it makes a gorgeous Christmas gift- even for the dreaded office Secret Santa. Personally, I always find choosing gifts so difficult! I think the beautiful way this is packaged and presented makes it the perfect gift. You can actually even shop online directly from the Theravine website – which is super convenient!
