Chocolate With None Of The Calories This Easter


Chocolate Beauty Products for Easter

If you're anything like me, you've probably already consumed more mini eggs, golden eggs and chocolate bunnies than you'd care to openly admit. So today I thought that I would share some chocolatey goodness with you except this chocolate has none of the calories and will last a lot longer than any of your Easter eggs, particularly if you devour chocolate almost instantly, like I do. And the great thing is, all of these beauty products are at a price where you could simply switch out an Easter egg buy for one of these beauty buys. So let's get started. Here are some of the best chocolate related beauty products on the market at the moment;

Makeup Revolution Chocolate Eyeshadow Palettes Bars

First up we have two fantastic eyeshadow palettes from Makeup Revolution's I Heart Makeup range. Not only do these look like actual bars of chocolate but they're packed full of absolutely stunning shades, a lot of which you don't often see in traditional eyeshadow palettes. I really love the mix of matte and shimmer shades in both the Pink Fizz and the I Heart Chocolate palettes. And at £7.99 each you could definitely pick up one, or both, of these guilt-free.

A product that I've been in love with for many years now has to be the Bourjois Delice de Poudre Gold Bronzing Powder. As soon as I open it up I'm hit with that slightly artificial but perfectly sweet chocolate scent and it's the perfect shade for someone as deathly pale as myself.

Easter Chocolate Beauty Buys

Whilst I'm on the topic of guilt-free shopping, I have to mention these three brilliant beauty buys. Treaclemoon's Dusted Cocoa Heaven Bath And Shower Gel* has a scent that's truly out of this world. I often find myself just sitting sniffing the bottle of this as I wait for a bath to run. And at just £2.99 a bottle who can complain at that price?

Then we have two fabulous face masks from Superdrug. At just 99p each or 66p each if you take advantage of the 3 for 2 deal that they're currently in, there's no way that you could get a great Easter egg for that price. Both of these are masks that I've repurchased time and time again and they smell exactly like chocolate orange and white chocolate. So if you're a fan of chocolate orange be sure to pick that one up. Similarly if you're all about the white chocolate then be sure to go for that one or why not pick up both at that price?

Chocolate Beauty Products

Another incredibly affordable beauty must-have is Cocoa Brown's Chocolate Whip. I've sang the praises of Chocolate Whip in a previous blog post and again, I just have to reiterate how incredible it smells. You don't have to break the bank to indulge in the Bee Good Raspberry & White Chocolate Lip Balm* either. A running theme when it comes to this post, it also smells incredible but unlike some of the other products that I've mentioned thus far it tastes wonderful too. It might mean that I have to reapply it a little more often than I should really have to but when it tastes that good it's hard to resist licking your lips.

The only real indulgence or splurge in this post comes courtesy of the Too Faced Melted Chocolate range. Brown lip shades are definitely having a moment at the minute and if you fancy trying out the trend then I would definitely point you in the direction of these liquified lipsticks. I plumped for the Metallic Chocolate Diamonds shade but I've certainly got my eye on a few more shades from the range. If you're not sure if you can pull off the brown lip look, I would wholeheartedly recommend checking out all six of the shades to see which one or ones work for you and your complexion best. I can already hear my local Too Faced counter at Debenhams calling my name.

All that leaves me to say is I hope that you all have a fantastic Easter break whatever you're getting up to over the long weekend.

What do you think of the chocolate beauty products that I've included in today's post? Have you tried any of them before? If so, what do you think of them? And will you be eating your own body weight in actual chocolate this weekend? Or have you done so already, like I have?

  13. Inspired post idea! I actually ate an easter egg my boss gave me on Thursday afternoon and haven't had an egg since. And only like one or two bars of chocolate... which is nothing by my standards! ;-)

  16. I love the look of the Makeup Revolution palletes! I haven't invested in them yet but you've encouraged me to take the plunge! I'm not normally a fan of chocolate (I know it's weird) but I love the sound of the White chocolate lip balm! I've gotta try it!
