It’s possible that we all may have consumed our body weight in chocolate this weekend, so it’s definitely time to detox a little, and the best way to start a detox is with a little pampering. While you may have to break your chocolate addiction with what you put into your mouth, you can always keep your addiction going by what you put on your body.
Decadent, chocolate beauty products feel so luxurious on the skin from the cocoa in the formula that you won’t even need to consume any to be in chocolate heaven – minus the calories. It’s a chocolate addict’s (or recovering addict’s) best friend! And the chocolatey goodness of your new make up products will have to admiring yourself in the mirror, rather than that chocolate bar in your cupboard.
If you’re looking to give your skin a bit of exfoliation, look no further than The Body Shop’s Chocomania Body Scrub, with real cocoa butter and a delectable chocolate scent, you’ll feel so decadent without regretting it later. The Body Shop also has a range of Chocomania products, from body lotion to soap to feed your addiction and keep you smelling sweet. There’s even a Chocomania Lip Butter with a chocolate flavour, so you’ll keep someone wanting more.
The Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette is so cute and looks so much like a chocolate bar that you’ll have no problem popping it in your purse. It features 16 matte and shimmer shades in smooth, chocolatey shades, made with cocoa powder. The palette now also comes in a Semi-Sweet flavour with deep, mocha tones. The Too Faced palettes are chocolate scented, so you can smell delicious all over.
Your eyes deserve the gorgeous colour of chocolate to complement your beauty, and there are so many palettes that encompass the rich tones of chocolate. Lara Mercier Baked Eye Shadow in Hot Chocolate, Sephora Collection Colourful 5 palette in Milk to Dark Chocolate and Lancôme Colour Design 5 in Chocolate Amande are lovely choices for a chocolate sensation.
Your brows deserve a chocolatey touch too, with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in Chocolate to ensure those eyebrows are on point. And don’t forget those nails – try Formula X in Genius for a dark chocolate brown touch for that added sophistication. And finally, those lips need a little chocolate, with Bite Beauty Buttercream Lipstick in Marzipan for a decadent, creamy milk chocolate finish or try Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Creme in Mahogany for that hot chocolate look without the frothy moustache.
Now that you’ve incorporated chocolate into your beauty products, there shouldn’t be any need to put it in your mouth. It’s a little detoxing and a lot of beauty.
