Review: Honeysuckle Prize Candle

I've seen quite a few candles that now come with jewels, trinkets and rings. I've been wanting to try one of these for a while but the price was a bit steep for me. So when I saw a Prize Candle offered on Swagbucks and I would get 515 Swagbucks for buying it, I went ahead and got it. If you have a Swagbucks account then you know that you can cash out for a $5 Amazon gift card for only 450 Swabucks so this was an incentive for me. 

I opted for the Honeysuckle scented Prize Candle and was happy when I smelled it once I opened the box. It smells really good, but will it transfer the scent to the room it's in once it's lit? That is what I usually have a problem with in getting these scented candles. They don't usually distribute the scent when they are lit. So I lit the candle and waited until some of the wax had melted. I can honestly say that I started smelling the scent from the candle right away. 

I put this candle in my kitchen and I smelled the scent of honeysuckle all the way into my bedroom. This is getting a 5 out of 5 star review for sure. 

Now I had to wait a while before enough of the candle had melted away before I could reach the 'prize' inside it. It took some work but I was able to get the ring out.

Inside each of these candles is a ring ranging in worth from $10 - $5,000 All you have to do to find out what your ring is worth is go back to the Prize Candle site, enter the code that is with your ring and they will tell you how much the ring is worth. 

So here's my ring, I think it's really pretty. So you're probably wondering how much it's worth, right? So according to the site, it's worth $25

The Prize Candle was $24.99 and shipping was $5.99 for a total of $30.98

Would I recommend Prize Candle? Yes, I would. I think people who like candles and like little surprises will love these. 


  1. Very pretty ring! I've been wanting to try one of those type of candles, one of these days I hope lol.

  2. Not bad at all especially with the swag bucks gift card. I didn't know swagbucks did points for purchases on items. And verra pretty. Ive wanted to do a surprise candle but yeah not the price on them. Thanks for the review on this one :D

  3. I try to remember to shop through swagbucks because you make out really well with that.

    The "jewels in an item" thing is also a great fundraiser if you can get a nice ring donated and then a bunch of costume rings too. You put them in a champagne glass for an inflated amount at an event and people buy them. Someone wins the real ring. I think I would really look at the logistics for the event and not actually put a real diamond ring in the glass.

  4. Not bad indeed for the price

  5. This is so beautiful! I have to get one now! I actually wanted to see how they perform scent wise and you answered my question! Great review and thanks!

  6. Keegan- I really liked the candle and the ring was an added bonus.

    Anna- So excited to hear on fb that you decided to get 2 of the Prize Candles. I can't wait to hear what you think of them.

    Steph- That's an excellent idea.

    Pat- It really was. I really enjoyed it because it lasted through 5 days of burning and the scent filled my entire apartment.

    Debbie- So glad I was able to answer your question about this. I'm sure you;ll like it if you decide to get one.

  7. My mom has gotten these too

  8. Adam- It's my first but I really loved it.
