I love a multi-tasking body product. Dr. Sofskin's has a most ingenious lotion that does double duty: it starts as a candle and ends up as a moisturizer.
When you first enter the store, an employee will dip right into a burning candle, scoop up some wax, and give you a hand massage. Dr. Sofskin's has you hooked from the very beginning.
In addition to body lotion candles, you can stock up on:
fresh-cut, handmade soaps;
Old-school shaving gear for the guys and rubber band shooters;
And coal, for that very naughty special one.
All of the above makes Dr. Sofskin's one of my favorite holiday shops in Bryant Park this year. Be sure to drop by for stocking stuffers, clever last-minute gift ideas, or to treat yourself to a couple of body lotion candles.
