Wax Play Candle Pack

For today's review, I'll be looking at Uberkinky's Wax Play Candle Pack. As always, click any image to see a larger version!

These candles are made of a paraffin wax that melts around 130-135 degrees. Though this is cooler than dining room candles, which are likely to burn, these aren't quite as cool as some candles specifically made for wax play.1 The paraffin also ensures that you can flip the candle upside down with minimal soot forming, over one particularly twisty session, I only counted three specks. Due to the design of these candles, they work best for creating droplets or splatters rather than pouring lines.

These candles are color dipped, rather than solid, and you can see the effect this had on the wax. I found this to be a great aesthetic disappointment, as I was looking forward to the sharp contrast of the red and black. Like any candles, the further the wax falls before hitting skin the cooler it will be, and vice-versa. Varying the distance between skin and candle is an easy way to keep things interesting. Do keep in mind though that it is harder to aim the further away you get, and completely avoid any negatively-sensitive areas. Wax play also conveniently works well with other kinks, especially knife play, predicament bondage, and flogging. Though obviously these candles can't be used underwater, they can give rubber duckies a run for their money during bath time. Hot wax on a body chilled by the air, but warmed by water is a rather awesome sensation. These candles were the perfect temperature for bath play.

These candles drip quite a bit, and can last through multiple sessions. Above I have their first use photographed with the amount of wax used and how far the candles burned down. Removal is fairly easy and painless if the wax is only one or two drops deep. If however you covered a part with more than that, removal will tug on both skin and hair (though it won't remove any). These candles were shipped in clear bag and surrounded with bubble wrap. If you're not a stickler for aesthetics, then these are the candles for you.

If you're new to wax play, Uberkinky has a lovely beginner's guide here!

Grade Breakdown: 87

If these were pure red and black,
they would have been so much more awesome.

It's a toss up between flogging it off someone,
or completely covering a body part with this wax.
Thank you Uberkinky!
