In this review we take a look at four products in this range: Candied Ginger body lotion, lip balm, scented candle and soap.
Candied Ginger Body Lotion
This body lotion includes ginger root extract which gives it a strong smell that lingers softly for around 30 minutes after you apply it. The lotion rubs in easily and as it’s made from shea butter, it is absorbed really quickly. After application my hands didn’t feel greasy, and my arm had a nice Christmassy smell that put me in the festive spirit.
Candied Ginger Lip Balm
With a similar consistency to vaseline (but less greasy) this lip balm smells like eating a lolly pop and has a tiny hint of ginger to the taste. You need to put on very little lip balm, and it is quite thick once you’ve applied it, so will keep your lips protected in the frosty weather. The tub is a reasonable size, and will easily last through the Winter season.
Candied Ginger Scented Candle
Candied Ginger Soap
Last up we have the Candied Ginger Soap, which offers the nicest scent of all four products, and was the main reason for the nice smell which emanated from the box. The scent of this one can’t wait to get out of the packaging, making it a great stocking filler if you know someone who likes to spy on their products before hand. The soap makes a good lather and will last a while (this photo was after just three uses). It won’t leave you smelling as strongly of ginger as the body lotion, but smells great whilst you use it, and left my skin feeling soft afterwards.
