Wax Empties #6: Candles | Fully Burnt Candle Reviews

Tuesday, October 27, 2015


It is time once again to dig through my candle trash in another empties review post and video.  If you aren't familiar with empties reviews, I basically save all the jars of the candles that I've burned completely down to give y'all my thoughts on how they performed and if I would repurchase them.

Video is embedded below, as well as, the complete included candle list in video order with short, mini reviews of each candle in case you are pressed for time or text is more your thing.
