Beauty That’s Sweet Like Chocolate

It’s the last day of National Chocolate Week (I know some of you are living the Chocolate Life!) so thought I would dip in to my favourite beauty products including or inspired by the stuff.

I may be the rare female that would choose crisps over chocolate if push came to shove but still there are moments when the food of the god(desses) is hard to resist. Apart from tasting delicious, chocolate (well technically cacao so the dark stuff) is chockfull of nutrients with numerous health benefits that have been scientifically proven. Everything from relieving cramps (due to the magnesium), reducing stress (due to encouraging the release of feel-good endorphins) and protecting against sun damage (due to antioxidants). It’s good for the heart (literally), mind (boosts brain power) and soul!

For when you want to indulge in the good stuff without the calories, here are my favourite chocolicious products.

EVOLVE RADIANT GLOW MASK

Try and resist licking this delectable face mask made with a mouthwatering blend of all natural ingredients that’s good enough to eat. This gorgeous mask leaves my skin smooth and glowing. Read a detailed review of the Evolve Radiant Mask here

RAW CACAO BUDDY SCRUB

If you’ve had your fill of coffee scrubs, why not try one using cacao. This Buddy Scrub is made with all natural ingredients – no nasty microbeads thank you – including brown sugar, cacao powder and coconut oil. It leaves skin feeling smooth and silky with less mess as the scrub dissolves when water hits it. Find it at Buddy Scrub here.

‘BAD’, AXIOLOGY

For a straight up, chocolate brown lip, I reach for Axiology’s Bad. Though no actual chocolate is involved, this is made with all natural and organic ingredients, wrapped in a chic, brushed metal case with a satisfying click. Read a detailed review and see more swatches about Axiology lipsticks here.
