Kesca Body Candle
My ever-expanding product collection has become detrimental to my living environment. With each addition, my space-deprived boyfriend makes his disapproval known. He can deal with his half of the closet really being more like one fourth (or one-eighth when I need all my winter coats), but when my product drawer took over every available surface area in our apartment, I had to scale back. Giving up precious products isn’t an option, so I’m getting creative instead. Initially, my inner skeptic didn’t buy the idea of a soy candle that could also function as a moisturizer, but when I put my Kesca Body Candle to the test, I was pleasantly surprised. Since the candles are 100% wax-free, and burn at only two degrees above body temperature, it’s safe to pour the melted candle directly on the skin. Vitamin E and Lecithin oil extracted from the soybean are extremely beneficial for the skin, too. My body candle lives in a great bamboo simmer pot ($25), so I’m actually getting a candle, moisturizer and lantern in one. I get my products and my boyfriend gets his precious counter space. That’s what I call “making it work.”

As most shops tend to do they had a sales girl outside trying to lure customers inside the store. I had time to kill so I decided to check it out. This little company based out of Brooklyn has some of the best bath and beauty products I have seen. The walnut scrub feels like fine grains of sand on the finest beach in the pacific. They have soy candles that turn into warm oil for your use after your bath. They also have custom designed scents for all of their products. Yes pricey but the quality of the products makes it well worth the price because you won't use tons of product with each use.
