Calling all sweet-tooth chocolate lovers, don’t limit chocolate just to your meals, it smells just as good in your beauty products, says WGSN Beauty Assistant Emma Grace Bailey
Easter, and the long weekend are just around the corner, and with that comes a bounty of chocolatey goodness for all those with a sweet tooth like me. If you don’t have a penchant for a chocolate egg or two, maybe these five cacao based beauty products will satiate your appetite in a different way. And the best thing about them all is that incredible chocolatey scent that just keeps on giving.
1. Frank Body Cacao Body Scrub
Frank’s coffee scrubs are legendary, add a sprinkle of cacao powder and you have an intensely rich body treatment that smells just like a chocolate cake and happens to be vegan too. Bonza.
2. Hotel Chocolat Bois Nef Bath Oil
Mixing roasted cocoa with jasmine, lily, black pepper and leather makes for this heady oil which transforms into a conditioning milk when added to water. Warm, calming and sensual, this is real chocolate for real devotees.
3. Ciate Choc Pots
Available in dark, mint, white and orange chocolate varieties, these nifty little nail varnish removal pots from Ciate are both handy and sweet. Using a gentle, acetone free formula which gently nourishes the nail, the cocoa scent sits alongside marula oil, vitamin B5 and E for a swift and easy result.
4. Tokyo Milk Dark Bittersweet No 83 Shea Butter Handcream
This deeply nourishing hand cream uses a mixture of natural ingredients for deep-tissue hydration. Shea butter, sweet almond oils, dark cacao beans and bronzed musk combine for a greasy free application with an intoxicating scent.
5. Jo Malone Blue Agava and Cacao Cologne
Inspired by Latin music, this intriguing fragrance mixes zesty notes of grapefruit, limes and blue agava flower with sea salt, cacao, cinnamon and musk for a scent that is anything but expected.
