You know how some posts write themselves? Here we go: Chocolate.
(And I’m out.)
Seriously though, if there’s one thing every gal desires, it’s the decadent, sensuous and indulgent taste of chocolate. In fact, given the choice of eating chocolate or doing the deed, 70% of women responded that they’d rather curl up with Mr. Lindt than Mr. Right. Since my husband sometimes reads my blog, I won’t tell you which side I’m on. And the fact that I’m not telling you is very telling, isn’t it?
The Body Shop must be very in tune with our love for the sweet stuff, because just in time for Valentine’s Day and Easter, their new Chocomania bath and body range is here! The products will be available February 6th, so consider this your sneak peek!
(I also received an incredibly sweet heart-shaped soap; unfortunately, Reid tried to take a bite out of it and I’m not up to photoshopping teeth marks. It’s quite cute though!)
I must admit that I’ve never been particularly keen on foodie fragrances, but I can’t stop twisting the top off the body butter and inhaling. And applying the lip butter on my chapped lips. And checking out the texture of the scrub. Oh sod it, I’m going to go take a shower. Be right back.
In the meantime, read this:
“Sin free, pleasure rich and oozing with luxurious texture and fragrance, Chocomania is irresistible. With its rich and sumptuous texture, the star of the Chocomania range is Chocomania Body Butter. Inside every pot is an exclusive formula of 12 Community Fair Trade Ingredients from around the world – making this the most lavish Body Butter from The Body Shop to date. Smooth and seductive, Chocomania Body Butter simply melts into the skin, combating dryness with 48 hours of intense moisturization releasing a heavenly chocolate fragrance that will make you smell good enough to eat.”
Hello! I’m back, and I had a chance to try some of the products. While I’m very neutral on the Shower Cream (still prefer invigorating scents to dessert-like ones) I am just dying over the Body Scrub and Body Butter. The scrub provides just the right amount of exfoliation for the body, and feels incredibly good when you massage it into tired muscles. Heaven! The body butter is very thick, very rich and goes on like velvet. Did I mention it smells like a bakery in here? No matter, I’m really digging these products.
Here are your three steps to Chocolate Heaven this Valentine’s Day:
