National Chocolate Week 2011 - A Real Beauty Treat

This week (10-16th October 2011) is National Chocolate Week and in celebration of this fact I thought I would bring together a fabulous collection of beauty products that are chocolate based or inspired....

As expected, Lush have some wonderful chocolate based products 

Ma Bar (£2.50) Looks good enough to eat but is actually a wonderfully guilt free way of enjoying chocolate. This bubble bar contains Bergamot oil and orange oil. A chocolatey caramel bar with a sugar cube!

Soft Coeur massage bar (£4.50) Heart-shaped and deliciously chocolatey, this massage bar contains moisturising cocoa butter and shea butter and is scented with molten toffee fragrance. When gently rubbed onto the skin, the bar melts away to reveal a soft centre. Yummy indeed.

Whipstick lip balm (£5.25) A lightly whipped formulation with a smooth chocolate base. This is a delicious blend of orange, tangerine and vanilla essential oils and cold pressed almond oil, olive oil and wheatgerm oil which, along with shea butter, will make your lips soft and moisturised.

White chocolate fans will love these offerings also from Lush

Honey Trap Lip Balm (£4.75) is a blend of white chocolate, honey and vanilla.

Mange Too Massage Bar (£6.00) This hexagonal shaped bar is made with white chocolate, honey and fresh bananas with a shea butter and mango butter base...simply divine.

Taking centre stage is Essential Care's Organic Coconut Candy Scrub (£28.00)

This luxurious body scrub is utterly delectable, it has been delicately blended with coconut oil and cocoa butter which smells just incredible and promises to leave skin silky smooth, containing gently exfoliating sugar cane crystals. I cannot wait to review it.

More chocolatey goodness comes from Montagne Jeunesse in the form of these fab masks

Chocolate Infusion Intensive Conditioning Hair Treatment (£1.09)
With ingredients like chocolate, honey and Kukui oil with added Panthenol Vitamin B5 this is a real treat for the hair to leave it soft and silky.

Chocolate Mud Face Masque (£1.09)
This natural clay mask contains cocoa, cocoa butter and shea butter and is suitable for normal, dry and t-zone skin. Beware though it is messy! Paraben free

White Chocolate Face Masque (£1.09)
More yumminess comes in the form of this white chocolate mask, with cocoa butter, cream and jojoba this promises to leave skin deeply clean and smooth. Paraben free. I am looking forward to trying this one out.

And finally more makeup treats in chocolate and rich dark shades ..

Max Factor Max Effect Trio Eye Shadow in 01 Coco Crazy (£6.99)
I love this easy to blend eye shadow trio and have been using it a lot recently. With a name like Coco Crazy I had to include it in this piece! 3 wearable shades that contrast and blend in equal measures, you can use wet for a more intensified look or dry for a more natural appearance.

YoungBlood Mineral Cosmetics Lipstick in Honey Nut (£14.00)
Cruelty free and 100% mineral in composition, this pretty creamy light brown shade contains Sunflower Oil and Candelilla Wax for moisture and Vitamin E for antioxidant protection, providing a soft shine finish.

No7 Poppy King Lipstick in Seduction (£12.00)
This is the darkest shade from the Poppy King collection of lipsticks, described as blackberry on my lips appears as a rich almost chocolatey shade. 

No7 Poppy King Lipgloss in Seduction (£11.00)
For every lipstick Poppy King created she also created a matching gloss to wear alone or on top of the lipstick for a more intense, glossy colour. In the tube this looks like a chocolate brown but is far less scary on the lips providing just a hint. I love the spotty lid.

Happy Chocolate Week!

*All products were supplied for free, except for the Cadbury's Fruit and Nut which I purchased and am currently feasting on..
