Cosy Candles Review by Chloe – September 2018

Firstly I would like to thank cosy candles for sending me their box to review, this is now the third 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 will keep you up to date with any new deals and discounts! Be sure to check them out for all updates. These 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, having 6 different scents is great for trying something new that you wouldn’t normally pick yourself.


  • Contents card
  • Using your cosy pods instruction card
  • Bubble-gum wax melt
  • Chamomile wax melt
  • Evergreen wax melt
  • Champagne and roses wax melt
  • Juicy orange wax melt
  • Sandalwood vanilla wax melt

These melts 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 £10.50 including delivery!!! This saves you £4.49!

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 had to be the champagne and roses melt. Not only is the smell feminine and floral, it also has gold glitter flecks which look amazing whilst melting! This melt is absolutely stunning and actually one of my favourites out of all the boxes I have tried.

Bubble-gum; this one speaks for itself. It is a classic sweet scent perfect for any time of year, reminding you of the famous gobstoppers and hubba bubba as a child.

Evergreen brings us into the transition to autumn with a pine scented melt. Strangely it reminds me of the build up to Christmas so I will certainly be melting this cosy pod then!

Time for a fruity melt, juicy orange. If you are a fan of anything orange scented you will love this one! Fresh but still sweet, it smells exactly like freshly squeezed oranges.

Chamomile is also one of my favourite scents. It is known to be calming to our senses and the scent can linger on for hours. It can help to reduce stress and provide aid with sleeping problems. Not only does it smell amazing it has many benefits too!

Last but certainly not least is sandalwood and vanilla. This is an indulgent fragrance with the warmth of sandalwood and richness of vanilla. I would say the vanilla is stronger and you can smell it the second it starts melting. After melting this cosy pod the scent lasted well after it had fully melted.

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!
