Wax Haul: Pink Mermaids Wax
At the beginning of May I was getting my month's melting basket together for the two melting challenges I participate in and I realized I was out of scents for two of the theme days: shaving cream blends and wedding cake blends. I had the ordering bug, so I must have looked through a dozen different wax vendors sites looking for those types of scents that would be ready to ship so I could have them in time to melt for the theme days. I was not having success with any of my usual favorite vendors, so I finally googled the blend names and low and behold I found them both available from Pink Mermaid Wax Melts! I was familiar with this brand from Instagram, but I had never tried any of their melts before, so I was excited to try a new to me brand.
When browsing their site, several of their 1.5 (approx.) wax melts were on sale for $1.35 each; definitely a fair price. I was very impressed by the adorably decorated wax cups topped with lots of glitter and little wax shapes such as seashells. After I placed my order I received a nice personal message saying that my order was all packed up and would ship out the next day; awesome!
My order arrived about 5 days after placing it, well in time for my monthly melting challenges. I was so pleased with the speedy shipping and excellent customer service. The wax was very securely packaged in 3 padded envelopes and a ton of tissue paper. Every item was perfectly in tact and the packaging had a lot of cute touches such as fruit patterned ribbons and the free samples came in this hilarious emoji bag.
I ordered a dozen scent shots, most of them being fun summery blends. I wanted to get even more but I had to keep my order reasonably sized. They also had adorable mini pies with mermaid tails for $5 I would definitely like to purchase a couple of those in the future.
I was happy to open my order and find that everything looked as beautifully decorated as it was on the site, and each of the blends smelled wonderful on cold sniff; not a discordant note in the bunch.
I also received 4 free samples: one full sized scent shot and 3 little bags of shell shapes. Two of them were unlabeled but still smell great.
Have you ever tried Pink Mermaid Wax Melts? Do any of these blends sound interesting to you?
