Cosy Candles Review by Chloe – August 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 summer. Having 6 different scents is great for trying something new that you wouldn’t normally pick yourself.


  • Contents card
  • Ocean breeze wax melt
  • Raspberry ripple wax melt
  • Green tea wax melt
  • Gardenia wax melt
  • Baltic amber and clove wax melt
  • Citonella 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:

My favourite scent this month was Baltic amber and clove. This reminds me of a seductive women’s perfume, I would describe it as a feminine musk smell. When melting it filled the living room with a calming scent.

Raspberry ripple; this one speaks for itself. It is a classic summery sweet scent perfect for this time of year, reminding you of cocktails and ice cream by the beach. If you aren’t going on holiday this year this scent will make you feel like you are!

Ocean breeze: another classic summer scent. Again, taking you back to the summer beach with the fresh breeze flowing past. This is a scent I would personally choose to use in my bathroom or hallway because it is fresh and awakening.

Citronella is a lemon scented melt; this reminds me of lemon cello. If you are a fan of freshly squeezed lemons then this is the melt for you!

Green tea is a mixture of lemon, lime and bergamot. This is a real fresh summery scent and not too sour, perfect for your home this time of year.

Last but not least is gardenia, this smells a lot like grapefruit to me, a zingy fruity scent. It reminds me of being outdoors in the sun and all of the plants scents hitting your nose at once.

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!
