By now most of you know how much I love candles, especially the ones with the jewelry in them – Prize Candle! Yes, those of you thinking about a Mother’s Day gift idea, or just a gift idea for her be sure to check out Prize Candle! I have always been pretty lucky and received a nice piece of jewelry in my candles. I do not know if I am just easy to please, because it’s like getting something AWESOME free inside something I would purchase regardless. Most of the rings I have received are at $10 or 25, but I have received a few that are worth more. Either way, they have all been pretty, either my daughter talks me out of them, or I wear them. Being that I have been getting candles from Prize Candle for so long, I thought I would share a few things you might not know about Prize Candle.
I was asked to review a candle from Prize Candle, and of course I love it, but for this part of my post I am speaking with my customer hat on. I will tell you about the candles toward the end of the post.
I am HUGE on good customer service. In my opinion, if I am spending money somewhere that you work, be nice to me. It’s because of people like me, who shop where you work, that you are getting a paycheck. When I was managing the bank, I used to my team to treat EVERY customer like they signed their paycheck, because, without them, we do not get one.
I have only had to deal with Prize Candle’s customer service twice, but both times were easy, they were sweet, went out of their way, and made me hang up the phone feeling like I was a valued customer. I always appreciate being treated like my issues matters and working to get my issues resolved.

You can apprise your prize on their website. I love that I can visit their website, put in a number, and know how much my ring is worth.
NEW Prize Packaging
I recently received another candle to review. Once the wax was melted enough to grab my prize out I noticed something plastic, I was thinking it was going to be a huge ring lol. WRONG, it is their new packaging. I love it, it helps keep your ring nice and clean. I don’t know if you have tried to get jewelry out of a candle, but getting wax off a ring is not easy. The new packaging is fabulous, and you will find a picture of it in my review below.
Great Gift Idea for Her

I mean think about it, these candles are like cracker jacks for women. I know there are women who do not like candles, but there are plenty who do, and the fact that there is a ring inside just makes it so much fun.

I recently had the opportunity to review one of their Escape candle, which smells great. I am not a fan of the whole powerful floral scent. It almost makes me want to sneeze the entire time I have it burning. Escape has a light floral scent, combined with pineapple, peach, undertones of vanilla, and a hint of island spice. I think the scents complement one another well, it’s not too powerful, but it leaves my house smelling clean and fresh.
I am already a fan of Prize Candle; this is my third review for them, I have also been a customer since they opened. I have always been a satisfied customer, which makes me a repeat customer.
Prize Candles are 9 ounces of all natural soy wax, produced in the USA, all the soy is domestically grown. They also use 100% cotton vegetable dipped wicks, and each of their 9 ounce candles are designed to burn for up to 60 hours.
When I first received my candle, I opened the box, and started to burn that bad boy. It’s bittersweet, because it takes a while to get to the prize. I guess, it’s a good thing, my house smells better longer, but I also want my prize, lol. I feel like a little kid again, and my mom will not let me dig the prize out of the cereal box. I just have to wait until the prize ends up in someone’s bowl of cereal, lol. Oh, and when my daughter came home from school she mentioned how good it smelled, and asked if I had a new candle. It wasn’t 30 minutes, I noticed my candle was not in the living room. I already knew it was Catie. She does it all the time, it’s a war. I want my house to smell good, Catie “borrows” my candles to make her room smell good.
I know some of you might be wondering how the whole prize deal works. Under the soy wax is a ring valued from $10 to $5000, and once your candle burns down far enough you will start to see the prize packaging. Next you will want to remove the packaging, which can get a little messy so have a paper towel close by, and definitely use tweezers or something of that nature. Since getting wax on my hands drives me crazy, as soon as I get the prize package out I set it on the paper towel and wipe off as much wax, and it’s time to open your prize!
The ring I received in my Escape candle is pretty. Normally, when a ring isn’t my style I give it to Catie, but this one I told her she could wear, because I really like it. It’s pretty, not too flash, and its turquoise.
So who is wondering how much my ring was worth? It was valued at $25, I love the ring, if the ring fits, and you like it WEAR IT! My youngest daughter wanted to show it off a little, after she examined it of course lol.
