A Jackpot in Every Candle

Disclosure: The author of this blog was NOT financially compensated to write this review.  I was provided with the products mentioned  in exchange of my honest  opinion which may differ from yours.  
Last week was the coldest  so far this  Winter season.  The kids only had one day of school  because of the  severe  freezing temperature.  It is so hard to keep warm during  Winter.  Gladly, I received  three  candles from Jackpot Candles to review.  The arrival of the candles couldn't be more perfect for the weather condition that we had.  We really needed something that could  lift our moods and spirits.  I have worked with a candle  company similar to this before but Jackpot Candles  has so many  great features that I love compared to them because in every jar of candles that you order, you can choose if you want ring, necklace, or earrings.  
I love the fact that every jar of candle is securely packaged in its own box.  The bubble wrap really protects it from being damaged during the transit.  For the price you for each candle, it is so worth every cent of it as you will get a surprise halfway through  burning the candle.  The jewelry's  price  inside the candle varies so you never knew if you are getting a  5,000 dollars worth of  jewelry.  
The first one that we lit up is is the  Ocean Breeze Jewelry Candle .   I wanted our home to be filled with ocean breeze scent to somehow  eliminate the cold  by setting our moods with an ocean  scent.
 I chose necklace for this one.  The kids love this one as it reminds  them of our  grand time  last summer in Ocean City.  
After burning the candle for about 3 hours, I can see the foil already and I got very excited.
I used a fork to  take out the jewelry inside the candle.  I normally use my tweezers but this time I didn't.
I was a little bummed out when I opened the foil and saw that some wax went inside the  zippie bag.  The  jewelry was  coated with  it so I had to wash it.
After taking the necklace out and cleaned it, I then punched the code  to find out if I hit the jackpot or not.  The necklace is worth $30 only but it's okay.  If you think about it, I'ts such a nice surprise that you get  aside from the candle that you paid for.
My daughter said that  she will wear this  necklace during St. Patrick day at school.  She even  write "LOVE"  using the chain to express her emotion lol.
I could not wait to try the  Lilac Jewelry Candle  because  it smells so good even when its not yet lit.
I so love the lilac!  It fully reminds me of what I would be enjoying outdoors in a few months.  
I chose a pair of earrings for the lilac candle.  Imagine my excitement seeing the foil emerge from the soy candle.  Just like the first candle that I lit, the jewelry on this one is soaked too.  It made the jewelry smells so good but I really  dislike that the the zippie bag isn't  secure to  keep the candles away  from the jewelry.
The  earring is worth $19 dollars.  I love the heart-shape design of it.  The Lilac scent is my  all-time favorite. It smells so  good that it soothes my cold body.  The last one that I chose is the  Valentine Candy Hearts Jewelry Candle.  What cool about Jackpot Candles that I think  other's competitors don't have is their  option of  making the customers pick what kind of jewelry they want and not only that, you can  also determine the size of your ring before ordering.  
As I previously mentioned, I worked with another company that also  sells candles with  jewelry but theirs are all ring and there is no size option which is a bummer.  The ring that I got back then was pretty large so I could not even use it lol.  
But anyway, back to the Valentine Candy Hearts, the scent is very mild but  I still like it.  This could have been a  nice  one to light up during the heart's day but it came a little later.  This one  took me a little longer to burn before I could  get the jewelry out.
The value of the ring is $26 so if you buy the candle and paid $24.99 for it, you basically got the candle for free.  
I  love the design of this ring and it' fits perfectly on my finger because  my size is available to  their option, yay!  This ring matches the earring that I got from the other candle so I kinda hit the jackpot, didn't I?
Here are the three beautiful pieces that I got  out from the candles.

Lighting candles during winter season is such a relaxing thing you can do.  It would really warm  your soul on freezing  days.   These candles would make a great  gift for any occasion.  If there's anything that I could think of that  I did not like is the fact that  the jewelries were all covered with soy wax.  I think, they should improve their packaging of the jewelry. Maybe use a thicker foil  that would surely secure the jewelry from not getting  saturated with the soy wax.  Other than that, I love the packaging, the price, the scent, and the  options of choosing the jewelry you want and the  size of the ring.

  1. I'd say you made out very well with the jewelry you got. Hopefully they will read your review and make sure somehow that wax does not get on that jewelry! I do love the smell of Lilac even though I am allergic to it! I love smelling Lilac bushes when they are in bloom around my Mom's house. ACHOO ACHOO ACHOO-but the scent is worth it!
