The towel is pretty awesome. It is microfiber which means it is super absorbent. We go to the pool a ton and I hate carrying around beach towels for everyone. Three beach towels take up so much room! But the Aurorae beach towel is super long and wide but thin, so it doesn't take up nearly as much room in my beach bag. But that's not to say that it isn't a great towel, because it is. It is really soft and feels fluffy and well made despite how thin it actually is. And it comes in lots of pretty colors. It also washed and dried without any problems.
The other thing I got to check out is a soy candle. The candle I got sent was the Peace candle which is a tropical scent. I'd describe the scent as being like a fruity, banana-y, suntan lotion sort of smell, which I liked. It smells good and seems to burn really clean. It is a subtle scent which is nice if you are sentistive to smells. I personally like a really strongly scented candle so it was a bit too subtle for me, but I used it in my kitchen which opens into my living room, so it is a pretty big space. It might seem stronger in a smaller space like a bathroom or bedroom.
So, if you are interested in winning either of these items, leave me a comment below letting me know what color of towel you'd love and what scent of candle you'd enjoy. I will draw a separate winner for each and email each winner to get their address. Unfortunately this contest is only open to US residents. Contest ends August 12th at 10am. Good luck!!
