Calling everyone with a sweet tooth! It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and nope, this isn’t some early Christmas excitement.
We’re talking about the glorious fact that supermarket shelves are currently lined with Easter eggs upon Easter eggs, just waiting for you to scoff ’til you’re all chocolate-d out. If that’s possible. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, chocolate with things in, chocolate with sprinkles on top, chocolate buttons and chocolate SLABS. Like Harry Potter confronted with the Hogwarts Express trolley, we’ll take the lot.
But who says your love for chocolatey-rich, heavenly-scented, gooey gorgeousness has to stop at your snack choices? There are actually loads of lip-smackingly good beauty products out there designed to please your inner chocaholic too. Here’s our pick of the bunch.
Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
If you want/need your makeup bag to smell like a particularly yummy birthday cake forever, then Too Faced is the brand to head for. Each eyeshadow in this dreamy palette is pigmented with pure cocoa powder, so the scent is just… we can’t even. Droolworthy shade names include Triple Fudge, Creme Brûlée and Salted Caramel.
Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzer
Adding a bit of bronzer to your everyday makeup can be great for warming up your complexion, and this subtly iridescent powder from Bourjois has been a classic for years – mainly because of the ultra soft texture and natural colour, but the deeelicious chocolate scent also makes it irresistible. Try the white chocolate inspired highlighter for an extra sugar rush.
Ciate Choc Pot Nail Polish Remover
Forever guilty of rocking the chipped nails look? Problem solved, if you keep this little pot of wonder handy. All you do is dip your finger in, give it a wiggle and your polish will disappear in seconds – and once it’s gone? Your digits will be left smelling like you’ve dunked them in a chocolate fountain. Take your pick from dark, white, choc orange or mint choc chip flavours. Isn’t the modern world amazing?
Too Faced Melted Chocolate Lipstick
Too Faced’s Melted lipstick range is already super popular amongst beauty bloggers and YouTubers… and now the brand has given them a candy-inspired makeover. Each tube is infused with cocoa powder for its enriching, antioxidant properties and mood-boosting scent, with colours like Chocolate Milkshake, Frozen Hot Chocolate and Candy Bar to really make you peckish.
Library of Fragrance chocolate scents
Chocolate Chip Cookie, Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Covered Cherries AND Mint Chocolate Chip are all actual, real life perfumes that you can spritz each morning to turn yourself into a human chocolate box. They’re all warm, comforting and sugary smells that any chocaholic will find seriously addictive – and you can even layer them up on top of each other for those days when you really wanna be a walking Willy Wonka.
Lush Cosmetics Cupcake Face Mask
Smothering your face in chocolate, all in the name of clearer skin? Um YEP, sign us up. While the old myths and legends usually tell you to stay away from sweet treats to keep spots at bay, the spearmint oil, vanilla and calming cocoa powder packed into this chocolatey treat(ment) will soften your skin, help combat oily, problem skin and, obviously, smells UNBELIEVABLE.
Burt’s Bees Richly Replenishing Cocoa & Cupuacu Butters Body Lotion
For all the times you’ve dreamed about smothering your limbs in melted Milkybar (just us? Come on), Burt’s Bees are here to make those dreams a reality. Their rich, dreamily-fragranced cocoa butter body lotion is all the incentive you’ll need to treat those scaly elbows – and it absorbs quickly, so no wandering around like a greasy zombie. Sweet.
Too Faced Chocolate Brow-nie Cocoa Powder Brow Pencil
Not only does choccie obviously smell and taste incredible, but the tones and colours that we associate with it also tend to make pretty perfect shades for your eyebrows. Who’da thought? These pencils feature a spoolie brush and a chiseled tip for foolproof application. You’ll have to order it from America, but perfectly groomed brows that smell like freshly-baked brownies sounds like a combo worth waiting for to us.
Lush Cosmetics Whipstick Lip Balm
The temptation to lick this balm straight off your lips will be seriously real, but despite the beyond-delish scent, it’s worth keeping it on all day to work its magic. A perfect blend of butters, beeswax and cocoa absolute, plus vanilla, oatmilk, sweet orange oils and whole LOAD of dark chocolate will calm and soothe a cracked, sore winter pout into ultimate kissable lips.
Palmers Cocoa Butter Dark Chocolate and Mint Lip Balm
We’re not joking when we say that topping up your pout with a touch of this magical stuff is basically like scoffing a mint chocolate chip ice cream with After Eights on top. It’s also packed with cocoa butter and Vitamin E to soften and relieve dry lips, while the mint will freshen your breath, and there’s even some SPF in there for summer. Perfecto.
