Just in time for Valentine’s Day: Chocolate-scented toiletries.Posted by Donna Freedman on Jan 27, 2013 | 117 comments
The every-Friday giveaway fell by the wayside for a few weeks. I missed it again last week because I was waiting for a couple of items to arrive from Good Earth Beauty.
They sat in the mailbox until my roommate got home late Friday evening and I must admit that the first glimpse caused me to make the girl-noise. Take a look at the accompanying photo and you’ll see why.
Couldn’t use them right away, because they were solidly frozen. But oh, how delicious they smelled on Saturday morning.
This make-believe cupcake holds “Choco DeLuxe Hand Cream,” which nicely soothed my winter-dessicated Alaska hands. (The temperature was 10 below zero this morning. But at least it’s not Fairbanks, where the high yesterday was 29 below and the low was 43 below.)
But wait! There’s more:
The leetle faux-confection holds a lip balm that is chocolate-colored as well as -scented. It doesn’t make my lips appreciably darker, but it certainly makes them feel pampered. Cold, dry air is hard on your skin.
Good Earth Beauty has offered to sponsor this week’s giveaway. Whomever the random number generator loves best this week will receive both the lotion and lip balm. These would be delightfully indulgent Valentine’s Day treats, either for a loved one or for yourself.
Bonus: They last longer than a box of chocolates, and have no calories.
