Cosy Candles Review by Chloe – July 2018

Firstly I would like to thank cosy candles for sending me their box to review, this is now the second box I have been lucky enough to test; I am a candle/wax melt addict so this box is perfect for people like me! My first impressions were good and their website is very easy to use. Their social media pages also keep you up to date with any new deals and discounts! Be sure to check them out for all updates. They are soy wax melts and handmade so every effort goes into putting the boxes together for you all to enjoy and indulge.

If you missed my live unboxing you can check it out here on our YouTube channel:

The box arrived via royal mail and was letterbox sized so I didn’t need to worry about being in to receive it, always a plus! The box was white and tied with string.

Inside the box were 6 different wax melts with the theme of the Caribbean. Having 6 different scents is great for trying something new that you wouldn’t normally pick yourself.


  • Contents card
  • Coconut lime wax melt
  • Mango and passionfruit wax melt
  • Wild mint wax melt
  • Lilac wax melt
  • Salted grapefruit wax melt
  • Fresh cut grass wax melt

There are all 80 grams in size which is huge, the same size as the palm of my hand! I would say you can get at least 10 uses out of each wax melt. You can use them on their own or mix together 2 scents you really love to try something new.


Each 80g melt retails at £3.99 making the box total to £23.96! To buy this box it would cost you £14.99 including delivery! Saving you £8.87 than if you were to buy them individually. This is the price for the standard cosy pod subscription box which is the one I received. This gives you approximately 480 hours of fragrance! It includes 6 handcrafted, surprise scents. However there are other options too if this doesn’t tickle your fancy.

They offer a mini melts subscription box which costs £9.99 including delivery. This box includes 28 x highly scented, hand poured, soy wax melts,   4 x different scents each month weighing 5g. This totals to approximately 140 hours of fragrance per box!

As well as these 2 boxes in which the scents are picked randomly you can subscribe to their customised boxes! They have the same 2 options of the cosy pod box with 6 different 80g melts or the mini melt box with 7 5g melts in 4 different scents. The customised boxes are priced at £16.99 for the cosy pod box. Or £11.99 for the mini melt box. Both boxes still save you money than if you were to buy the melts elsewhere or individually. If you go for these options it gives you a list of scents to choose from.

Use code WELCOME to get your first box for £3.99 including delivery!!! This saves you a whopping £19.97!

How it works:

Your subscription will automatically renew each month on the date you sign up. You can expect to receive your box within 5-7 days of payment. Delivery is free and you can cancel your subscription at any time (no sooner than 7 days before your renewal date) so there’s no commitment needed. This is great as I know some months can be financially tough so this gives you the option to stop and start your subscription whenever you like. My experience with their customer service team has been brilliant so I am confident that if you have any queries they will be more than happy to help.

Time to see what my thoughts are on the scents:

Wild mint

Reminds me of peppermint tea with a bit of sweetness. It is a fresh scent but not too over powering, I like to have this melt in my bathroom during the day as it has that clean smell to it.

Coconut lime

Is mainly dominated by the coconut scent with a hint of lime that comes through more whilst melting. If you watched my live unboxing you will know I compared the smell to the twister ice lollies! You know the green ones with the cream twist and red inside? It smells like that to me! Weird comparison I know but this scent takes me back to childhood summers.

Salted grapefruit

Is one of my favourites, it is quite strong so you only need to use a little bit at a time. It smells like an expensive soap, again, another weird comparison! It has that clean fresh smell enhanced with summer fruitiness!

Fresh cut grass

Need I say more about this scent? It smells exactly like fresh cut grass in the summer. It reminds me of summer days in the garden, flowers blooming and the scent of fresh cut grass in the air. This is a classic July scent which I am sure many of you will love.


Is my favourite scent from this box; it has a calming scent that puts your mind at ease. I am definitely one for scents that help with relaxation and I find these are the most enjoyable. When melting this I noticed I was calmer and for a moment I forgot about life’s worries! Another comparison for this scent is the smell of a show home. I assume it is the air freshener they use (at least in the few I’ve been to) that reminds me of this, it is a very welcoming smell so I can see why they would use it for this purpose!

Last but not least is mango and passionfruit

This is your ultimate tuttii fruity scent! It is bursting with fruity fragrance that fills your whole home. I also like this melt as it is bright orange in colour which adds to all the summer vibes!

Final thoughts:

Overall I think this box is convenient and amazing value for money. Considering the sizes of the wax melts and the 480 hours of fragrance you get I cannot fault them. The wax melts themselves are strong, but not overpowering, easy to use and cut into smaller pieces; they can be mixed together or used alone and come in reusable packaging. The fact that they are handmade highly scented, and soy wax melt means it is a great business to buy from. Cosy candles are continuously bringing out new fragrances which are exciting and I look forward to seeing what they release in the future! So what are you waiting for?! Go check out their website whilst there’s a discount code and order for yourself as a treat, or gift someone you love with a great subscription box! Enjoy!
