Luminessence - Dollar Tree Tarts
These packs only have four cubes in them, as opposed to the typical six cube packs you get most other places. At first I thought it was such a steal, only a dollar for these little gems, but when I got home and really looked at them I saw that the cubes are actually smaller. I popped the wax out of the package and weighed it ... only 1 oz. Heh, Walmart tarts are $2.00 for 2.5 oz. Oh well, I'm always happy to try new tarts.
Normally, with Walmart tarts I will melt two cubes at a time. That's about .8 oz. I considered just melting all four cubes of the new one but I'm using my slightly smaller warmer today and ended up only putting three in, which should be close to how much I melt with Walmart tarts. (Follow that? lol) I decided to try the Cucumber Melon first, and they've been melted about an hour now. I can only faintly smell anything. I *can* smell it, but it's much lighter than I prefer. For smaller apartments or rooms, or those who like lighter scents, this would probably be great, but cost-wise you're still better off getting the Walmart tarts.
So in the end, while it was fun to find these and get a couple to try, even if the Ocean Breeze one is stronger I won't buy them again simply because the Walmart tarts are a better value.
Have you ever tried Luminessence tarts? Or any off the wall brand tarts? Have you found any surprise hits? Let me know!
