Skin Problems

Being a Chocoholic, you can imagine my delight, when I came across a chocolate body scrub. I had heard of coffee scrubs before, but never "chocolate" scrubs. I have to say that, holding this jar choca block full of chocolate, looks extremely enticing. On opening it, I am overwhelmed by the amazing chocolate aroma, which reminds me of a rich home backed chocolate cake. To top it off, it is organic, eco friendly, and has zero calories (that is if you can stop yourself from tasting it).

The actual scrub is made with Cacao Bean Chaff, which is mixed with Epsom salts, and Rice Bran Oil. All in all, a feast for the body and senses. The most amazing thing is that this product really is the answer to our skin solutions. The chocolate scrub, exfoliates our skin, while the Epsom salts detoxes us, and finally the oil mosturises us, all in one go. This is a great product to travel with, as it is an all in one cleanser and moisturizer.

Believe it or not, chocolate is good for cellulite. Not if you eat it of course, but if you use it externally on your problem areas. As, chocolate contains caffeine, which increases our circulation, lymphatic system and blood flow. I have found since using it a couple of times a week for the past month, that my skin is looking firmer, more moisturized, and younger. Another treatment that this can be used successfully for is varicose veins. With the combination of all of the above, and the massage, it provides huge relief.
