For Those Seeking A Flavored Massage Candle Option, Skinny Dip Candles Introduces Sensual Edibles

Rolled out in mid-February, Sensual Edibles massage candles are currently offered in six flavors: Cherrylicious, Chocolate Decadence, Orgasmic Orange, Passionate Pina Colada, Sensuous Strawberry, and Wicked Wild Berry.

Company founder and CEO, Karen Porter, states, “The flavored massage candle line came about f r o m multiple customer requests for a massage candle that tastes great.” While Skinny Dip Candles have traditionally been used for moisturizing the body and as a massage oil, Porter stated that “many of our customers use the candle for romantic couple’s massage and we had many requests for a flavored massage candle.”

Porter states that the six flavors currently available in the Sensual Edible line were selected with customer input. The flavors were also based on the popularity of the company’s top selling Barely There Lip Balm flavors.

Like the flagship Skinny Dip Candle line, Sensual Edibles are made f r o m natural ingredients. Sensual Edibles are made f r o m cosmetic-grade soy, avocado oil, beeswax, sunflower oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, and vitamin E. The Edibles line features flavor oil instead of fragrance or essential oils.

Like traditional Skinny Dip Candles, Sensual Edibles melt at just over body temperature and are ready to use immediately after extinguishing the flame. Porter adds, “The melted lotion is extremely rich, so a little goes a very long way. It’s terrific when used on cuticles, elbows, heels, dry hands, and anywhere the skin is dry. Even though the warm lotion is super emollient, it completely absorbs into the skin within just a matter of minutes.”

Priced at $14.95 retail on the company’s website,, Sensual Edibles are also offered at wholesale pricing for qualified resellers.

Skinny Dip Candles and other company products are also available in select gift shops, spas, and salons across the U.S.

Scottish online cosmetics company Beauty Counter Direct have announced an impressive 43% like-on-like increase in sales

Defying the economic downturn, Beauty Counter Direct’s December figures prove that beauty products and cosmetics are increasingly popular. The so-called, ‘lipstick effect’, first evident during the Great Depression 1929-1933 when lipstick sales rocketed 25%, should perhaps be renamed the ‘cosmetics effect’ as sales increase across the board. In the pre-Christmas period Beauty Counter Direct’s skin care product sales increased by 65%, cosmetics by 58% and fragrances were up by 17%. During the same period, mascara sales more than doubled.

Julie Wood, Managing Director of Beauty Counter Direct says: “Our sales prove that people like to keep up appearances despite the dismal outlook. Treating yourself to less expensive luxuries has never been so popular. Customers want low cost and high impact.”

Sales figures from one of the world’s biggest cosmetics companies, L’Oreal, endorse this theory. Their sales were up 5.3% in the first half of the year.

RAB Capital analyst Dhaval Joshi explains the increase: “The evidence shows that when budgets are squeezed people simply substitute large extravagances for small luxuries.” Wood backs up this comment: “Our customers are buying larger volumes of cheaper products.”

Beauty Counter Direct was started by Julie Wood in 2005 after spotting a gap in the market for direct designer selling. The company employs eight people and is hoping to increase staff levels in 2009. Their best selling item is YSL Touche Eclat (RRP £22.50), which costs £16.99. Their product range stretches from eye pencils at 50 pence to Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti Ageing Cream (RRP £145) at £98.99. Over one hundred brands include Estee Lauder, Lancôme, Clarins, Clinique and Yves Saint Laurent. They offer discounts of up to 70% on high street prices and cater for the grooming needs of both men and women.
