Avon Warmer & Tarts

A month or so ago, I was browsing through someone's Avon book at work and noticed they now have wax tarts and a beautiful tea light warmer.  I debated getting the warmer, thinking it would look so nice during the Christmas season, but also thinking that I already have plenty of warmers.  It was actually hubby who said to go ahead and get it because, yes, it would look really nice for Christmas.  I decided to go ahead and try a pack of the tarts too, just to see how they are.  The 3-wick candle I'd ordered last year was a complete bummer.  Would the tarts be better?

I originally placed my order with a coworker whose friend is the Avon representative.  I heard nothing for probably three weeks, and then the coworker said this was on backorder.  I went to the site and didn't see any mention about it being out of stock or on backorder.  Frustrated, I told the coworker to have her friend cancel the order.  Then I found a free shipping coupon code and placed my order online.  And imagine that, I received this in less than a week.

The warmer is gorgeous.  It's actually bigger than my regular, cheapie tea light warmers that have been my workhorses for years.  I'll have to experiment and see if I need to place something inside, to get the tea light up closer to the bowl.  I've had to do that with one of my others.  Not a big deal.  The bowl is nice and deep on this, looks like it can hold quite a bit for those who prefer to melt larger amounts.  Nowhere near as big as a Glade warmer bowl, but bigger/deeper than most tea light warmers I come across.

There are only two scents of tarts right now, Vanilla Buttercream and Christmas Pine.  We decided to go with pine.  For some reason, I had tea light candle size in my head for these tarts, so I was quite surprised how big they actually are.  This one tart is 1 oz, and there are eight in the package.  It's quite strongly scented too, which is promising.

You can see how much room is left in that bowl even with a full 1 oz. tart in it.

I have not tried the wax or the warmer yet.  If you're curious how they perform, just let me know.  If you'd like to order your own, the warmer sells for $14.99 on the Avon website, and a pack of tarts is $5.99.  (For 8 oz. of wax, that's not a bad price.)  I'm looking forward to using mine now that the Christmas season has officially begun!

    1. It IS everywhere. More and more stores and brands have it. I'm still leery of no-name brands like what is at Menards or dollar stores though.

    1. I do like the warmer. It's very festive. I have put the tea light candle on a little platform, like I was considering. I should try it without, just to see how it does. Have not tried the Avon wax yet, but have melted a few different Kim's tarts in there already.

    1. I've finally melted one and have a post about it. The wax was disappointing but I do like the warmer.
