Spa Chocolate

Friday, December 15th, 2006

If you like chocolate, and I mean really like it, then do I have the product for you.

Not Soap, Radio’s Spa Chocolate is a luscious pampering, three pack that contains an exfoliating sugared body polish, an ultra-whipped cocoa butter body soufflé and a purifying face mask all made with real cocoa, a dash of vanilla and a hint of nutmeg. Yummy.

Sugared body polish – Premium cocoa butter nourishes as brown sugar crystals and pure ground cocoa beans buff away dead skin, revealing soft, radiant, delectable skin.

Whipped body soufflé – Add incredibly emollient cocoa butter, shea and nutrient-rich fruit oils to sweet cocoa and viola – the ultimate all-over moisturizer.

Purifying Face Mask – Kaolin, the gentlest of clays, pulls dirt and toxins from skin, while the caffeine in cocoa firms, tightens. Use 1-2 times per week to restore skin’s natural vitality. For any and all skin types.

I have tried this kit and I was amazed how wonderful everything smelled. I slathered myself in the body soufflé one night and drifted off into a delicious sleep. The scrub was fantastic and smoothing some rough skin off my thighs and left them smooth and soft. My husband loved the face mask and asked if he could eat it. It almost felt like I was rubbing really milk chocolate on my face!

At $22.00 this would make a great gift for someone.
