Votivo Icy Blue Pine Candle Review

Votivo Icy Blue Pine Candle Tin Review

Votivo Icy Blue Pine tin candle review

I received this 4 oz Votivo Icy Blue Pine tin candle in my November/December Beauty Test Tube.

I’m a sucker when it comes to candles. I love having them all around my house and in almost each room.

I received this 4 oz Votivo tin candle in my Test Tube Beauty subscription this month and I only have one more candle in my house to light up so this one came in just in time.

With the colder weather here, I tend to buy seasonal candles to go with the season. This is the perfect scent for this time of year.

I’ve never heard of this brand, so I was excited to see if it will have some staying and a good scent throwing power for my house. With it being only a 4 oz tin candle, I didn’t have high hopes for it, but I was proven wrong!

I lite it up in my open space living room and I could smell it throughout the house. In the kitchen, living room, bathrooms, and all of my bedrooms.

The Votivo website describes it as:


A potent powerful punch of prickly pine pleasure with the underpinnings of sweet and spicy stripped cedar bark topped with merry crumbles of crystallized, ice cubes , the suspended delight of wintery wonderland adventure.

The packaging looks completely different from what I received,  but that just might be because the one I received is the promotional Votivo tin candle.

Regardless of the packaging that I received,  it still has a strong scent throw.

This is the Votivo Icy Blue Pine Candle that I received

This is what is on the Votivo website for the same Icy Blue Pine candle picture

The one from the website is more elegant looking but I’ll cool with what I received just as much.

You can purchase this Votivo Icy Blue Pine candle on their website at Votivo.com for $15.

I may have to check out the rest of their stock to see what else catches my scent fancy.

What candle scents do you like to burn during the holidays?

Ashieda Skin Renewal Mask

The Skin Renewal Mask, the Only Clinically Proven, All Natural Facial Mask by Ashieda

My experience with Ashieda Skin Renewal Mask was lovely but this isn’t your typical 20-30 minute mask. With this one, you leave it on for an hour.

The material is not the regular cheap material either. This one will stick to your face perfectly without feeling unnatural.

It fit my face perfectly to include around my eyes, lips, and nose.

Ashieda Skin Renewal Mask

I applied it right after a took a nice long shower with my kids continually coming in and out of the bathroom! Can I get a little privacy kids? Seriously!  Who else has to go through that too?

You can continue doing whatever it is you do at home, be it, homework,  Facebook gaming (Urg, seriously, I’m one of those that gets mad at my friends that keep requesting freaking lives or to play! Just stop it already! I don’t want to play! All right, my rant is over.), watching television,  talking on the phone, blogging, reading other bloggers posts, taking a nap, cleaning the house, etc. You get the picture.

This mask didn’t slide around while I was cleaning the house and watching television.

Ashieda Skin Renewal Mask

My son however, was a little jealous that I only had one mask. He’s such a diva. He loves to do facial sheet masks with me.

After my hour was over with the mask, I took the mask off and went about my business.

My skin felt more supple, nourished, and smooth. Like I just lathered on some high-end moisturizer.

With me just starting out with Accutane for my acne, I know I’m going to need more of these because the Accutane slows down the oil making glands quite a bit. But I ain’t complaining!! I’ll deal with anything to finally get these cystic acne flare ups under control.

I have me a younger man in my life so nourishing and moisturizing my face and skin is a must to keep my Asian skin in a beautiful state.

Now here’s what Ashieda has to say about these Skin Renewal Masks.

Our Natural Facial Mask rounds out our skin renewal products with an at-home facial that is better than a facial at any high-end salon because it addresses all the aspects of anti-aging in one mask.

The Natural Facial Mask uses five peptides to stimulate collagen regeneration for younger, tighter skin.

Stimulating the production of collagen, pre-hyaluronan and elastin for skin flexibility and firmness, this mask helps your skin to retain moisture resulting in increased hydration, improved skin tone and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

Clinically Proven

In international clinical tests, this mask was used over a six month time period and produced:

  • 67% improvement in the percentage of the skin surface occupied by deep wrinkles at six months
  • 24% reduction in a deep wrinkle at six months
    Clinical results after just one treatment.

Anti-Aging Facial Mask

Sunlight, air pollution and stress all contribute to the aging of your skin. The Natural Facial Mask helps prevent this by inhibiting production of enzymes that degrade collagen and elastin and by regulating oxygen and suppressing perioxidation which cause cell damage.

Skin Renewal and Repair

Aloe Vera renews and repairs existing damage and other natural ingredients encourage self-healing of damaged tissue.

Moisturizing Facial Mask for Increased Hydration

After smoothing the wrinkles, removing the antioxidants and repairing damage, this facial mask contributes to the continued hydration of your skin.

The Result

One mask that does it all, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, protecting, renewing and hydrating your skin so that you experience a return to younger-looking skin with the firmness and glow of health.


1. Wash your face to remove makeup and any environmental toxins.

2. Gently unfold mask and peel off outer cotton sheet. You only use the inner layer of the mask. It is the piece that feels a bit like silicone but is an all natural material called bio-cellulose that comes from vegetable fibers.

3. Place the bio cellulose side to face.

4. Remove outer cotton covering.

5. Fit mask to face. Adjust the eyes and mouth openings. Eyes and mouth can either be covered or exposed.


7. Remove the mask from your face and discard.

8. No need to rinse. Massage the remaining product into your face and neck.

Use ONE PER WEEK as a regular part of your skin care program. You may use more than one per week.

Use immediately after opening.
