Arm & Hammer Wax Melts from Dollar General - Review

Arm & Hammer Wax Melts from Dollar General - Review

These are new and I've only seen them at Dollar General. They only have two scent duos. The wax is soft and messy like the Dollar General "True Living" wax brand. Therefore, I didn't have high hopes for this wax because I haven't had luck with True Living wax in terms of throw. But I was pleasantly surprised that all of the scents except one threw quite well.

These are $2.50 each for 2 oz. of wax, and there are two scents in the package of 1 oz. each. Each scent can be broken into 4 rectangular cubes, and you put one or more cube into the warmer. You can mix the scents if you'd like, or use them separately. I prefer to melt them separately.

Ripe Raspberry/Island Breeze

Island Breeze (light pink) is a nice but generic tropical scent. Melted, it smells like a generic tropical scent that might be used in a commercial bathroom. Still a nice scent though. Throw was good, around a 3 out of 5.

Ripe Raspberry (magenta) is a very sweet fake raspberry scent, almost like "pink sugar" or raspberry scented body lotion. It's a very nice scent, not meant to be an authentic fruit scent. Throw was excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5. But scent started dissipating within about 2 hours.

Citrus Swirl/Cilantro Lime

Citrus Swirl (yellow) is a plain but pleasant orange scent with a lemon note. Throw was excellent, 4 out of 5. But scent started dissipating within 2.5 hours or so.

Cilantro Lime (green) is a very nice herbal slightly peppery lime scent. Throw was non-existent when melted, 0 out of 5, and I couldn't even smell it from a foot away.
