Chocolate Macadamia Nut Vegan Lip Balm

If you have ever dreamed of living in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, or figure the best superpower ever would be the ability to eat as much chocolate as possible without it having any calories, I think this lip balm is for you. Decadent, super-fragrant cocoa butter is paired with golden liquid nutty goodness macadamia nut oil to create a lip treat that is easily confused for dessert. Yum.

Heavenly Cocoa Lotion

This divine, lightweight, Heavenly Cocoa Lotion went straight into my purse, and that is high praise. Jasper requested a “simple yet effective facial moisturiser. Something a little bit like the LUSH Celestial Moisturiser… I worked for the company a while back as a product trainer and it is their best selling moisturiser, so I feel a formulation based on this cream would be really useful for your subscribers too!” The original ingredient list had some really lovely things in it—almond oil, cocoa butter, and lots of vanilla—and we all know I’m a total sucker for cocoa and vanilla, so how could I resist?

Chocolate Sugar Scrub Nuggets

The first thing I should get out of the way in regards to these Chocolate Sugar Scrub Nuggets is this: please don’t eat them. You will be sorely tempted, and I’m guessing they probably don’t taste all that bad. After all, they are mostly cocoa butter and sugar, and that right there is sort of white chocolate, so I can understand the temptation, but you really shouldn’t. Truly. Save these nuggets for the bath, and pick up some proper nuggets for nomming from a place that does not specialize in exfoliation and bath treats that lie.

Chocolate and Roses Valentine Soap

I often hear that my soaps look downright edible, but I think I may have outdone myself with this decadent Chocolate and Roses Valentine Soap. It’s a beautiful dark bar with what looks like a swirl of nougat running through the center, and if you don’t want to lick it on sight, there might be something a bit wrong with you. These cold processed bars are loaded with rich cocoa butter and moisturizing olive oil, and they work up into an utterly lovely creamy lather. I’m not sure how you couldn’t be completely smitten with them, so let’s dive in.

Tinted Coal Lip Balm

I thought I’d mix things up a bit with this seasonal lip balm and bring my Lumps of Coal holiday theme to the realm of lip balms. And I love it. It definitely seemed a bit odd when I jotted down the idea a few weeks ago, with aims of avoiding creating something dark (though not goth-esque) you’d actually want near your mouth. The final product is a beautiful cool plum colour that I absolutely love. There’s a hint of shimmer, some wonderful darkness, and some subtle gloss. It’s a perfect stocking stuffer, and you should definitely make some.

Thin Mints Bath Melts

As the snow arrives (sadly I’m not kidding, it snowed here all last weekend!), hot baths quickly become one of my favourite ways to warm up and wind down. A good pumpkin ale, some Scrubs on my iPad, and I’m a happy lady. If that bath smells like cookies and leaves my skin hydrated and happy, all the better. That’s where these adorable little nuggets of minty cocoa bath delight come in. These Thin Mints Bath Melts dissolve into your bath water, turning it into a big ol’ tub of what is essentially super-weak lotion, making for a decadent soak and some seriously happy skin. Just don’t be tempted to drink your bath water, even if it does smell like minty hot cocoa!
