A Find: Feel the Burn

What: Kesca Body Candles
Why: 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 isnâ€™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, itâ€™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 Iâ€™m actually getting a candle, moisturizer and lantern in one. I get my products and my boyfriend gets his precious counter space. Thatâ€™s what I call â€œmaking it work.â€
