As I mentioned earlier in this post, I was contacted by the lovely people at The Melting Fairy Wax Co., a new wax subscription box service in beta testing mode, and they asked me if I wanted to test out their first box for them! Of course, I said yes!
[One thing I gotta mention...I wish I knew who I was talking to! I feel bad saying "lovely people, it sounds so informal! So, whoever you are, I'd love to know your name. :)]
Anywho, here's my unboxing of their first box! I apologize that this is up a few weeks after I received it, but with the madness of the holidays, everything sort of got pushed aside in my wax room to make space for wrapping paper, a mountain of tape, and gift tags! ;)
Please note, I did receive this box for free to test out by The Melting Fairy Wax Co., but all the thoughts and opinions on this post are my own!
Now, as you can see from the above photo towards the left side of the box, everything else (besides one chunk which I will go into detail about below) came in foil wrappers like little cupcakes would as opposed to scent shots, clamshells, or other types of containers. I have to admit...I sort of loathe these foil wrappers. While they are quite dainty and cute appearance-wise, they are very messy to deal with. Even if you're trying really, really hard not to be, wax seems to get everywhere. I've tried twice to be very careful and it doesn't matter, wax ends up all over the place. Maybe in the future, these will be phased out, but they were really convenient for shipping in such a small package. AHHH, conflicted!
At the top of the package was a little note explaining the company's beta testing, as well as this month's custom blend, Hansel & Gretel's Cinnamon Buttercream Cookie Crumbles (what a mouthful!). I like the detailed notes about melting, the howto's, basically. The owners recommend using a 17-24 watt melter, which is perfect because, as you know, I swear by my 24 watt hot plate. They also have a Twitter page, so follow them here if you'd like!
That's my unboxing and cold sniff reviews for The Melting Fairy Wax Co.'s December #1 Box! YAY! I am really looking forward to melting these ans giving you my thoughts, so be on the lookout for those. Have you signed up for the company's box? I'd love to know what you picked for your boxes!
