Bionic Review: Pink Papaya’s Candles and Body Lotion

by Bionic Beauty on 22.May.2010 · 7 comments

Pink Papaya hasn’t been covered on Bionic Beauty before, so I hope you’ll enjoy the introduction to this “new-to-us” body care brand!

Pink Papaya is a fun company with some wonderful gift ideas. I had the opportunity to indulge in one of their Soy Massage Candles and their ‘Ocean’ Body Lotion.

Bionic Beauty review - Pink Papaya Soy Massage candleThe Soy Massage Candle smelled divine… very, very sensual! Soy candles burn very clean – without all those nasty carcinogens that can build up from regular candles. As they burn, the melted waxes and oils can be used to rub into, and moisturize, your skin. This candle lasted a long time and it felt, and smelled, so nice on my skin!

The candle’s ingredients are jam-packed with skin care goodies including Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Grapeseed Oil, Vitamin E, Hemp Seed Oil, various essential oils, soy and beeswax. Pink Papaya’s Soy Massage Candles come in a glass votive, about 4 ounces in size. I do wish the candle had come with a lid, however I can overlook this drawback since it was one of the nicest candles I’ve experienced!

Bionic Beauty review - Pink Papaya body lotion
Pink Papaya’s Body Lotion is beautifully packaged with a clean, spa-esque feel. There are several scents available and while I wasn’t a huge fan of Ocean, I’m sure it would be a great fragrance for someone. After all, each person finds different fragrances attractive. The lotion’s ingredients include Aloe, Shea, and milk protein. The lotion felt nice on my skin, and didn’t leave a greasy residue; however it’s a light-weight lotion. If you’re in a dry climate, or suffer from chronic dry skin- you’ll probably want something with more moisturizing power.

My overall thoughts on the brand: The Pink Papaya Company has great packaging, affordable products, with a wide-range of scents and products to cover your stay-at-home spa experience. It’s a fun brand, cruelty-free, and would certainly make gift-shopping easy! It’s much more unique than buying the Bath & Body Works stuff everyone seems to give these days!

Pink Papaya’s Soy Massage Candle ($18) and the Body Lotion ($16.50 for an 8 ounce bottle) are available at
