With Easter around the corner I thought I would share a few sweet treats I have been indulging in lately. I am a total chocoholic, so anything sweet or chocolate scented immediately gets my attention, these three products are all perfect for a pampering night in. A hot bath, something sweet to eat, a facemask and Netflix are my idea of heaven these days.
M&J Ethical luxury candle Autumn in New England – I have had this candle for a while and really should have shared with you sooner. M&J are one of my favourite candle brands, see my review of the Larkin blend here. They have beautiful and interesting blends and a portion of the profits is donated to women’s charities. They use Soy wax and high quality essential oils in the blends, creating a really wonderful clean burning scent. Autumn in New England has notes of cranberry, pumpkin and maple syrup, it is sweet and comforting, but not sickly or overpowering. Inspired by Autumn in the US, this scent is perfect for the unseasonably cold weather we have been experiencing in the UK at the moment and really sets the scene for a perfect pampering evening.
Joik White chocolate bath truffles* – These bath truffles from Joik are so decadent they almost look edible. The main ingredient is cocoa butter, which not only smells delicious but is really nice and moisturising. Just add one generous bath truffle when you are running the hot tap, adding only hot water at first will help the bath truffle melt more quickly. These are very moisturising, great for dry skin, but not something I would use everyday, so I save them for special occasions. The dried rose petals are a very cute addition too.
Akamuti Chocolate Marshmallow face mask – This mask comes in a dry powder form and you mix it with water or hydrosols. It has anti-oxidant rich cocoa powder, soothing marshmallow, pink clay and rose powder. This mask is really gorgeous and a bit of a steal price wise, it leaves the skin really soft, bright and fresh. A really wonderful addition to a pampering night in and a nice mask for anyone who has slightly sensitive skin as the marshmallow and rose are really soothing.
