When it comes to skin care, Lisa Françoise, founder and owner of Sweet Beauty Organic Chocolate Spa Treatments has one cardinal rule: If you wouldn't eat it, don't wear it on your skin. It's an easy tenet to get behind when you realize that Françoise's brand of edible skin care involves premium organic, fair-trade chocolate that turns that whole moment-on-your-lips-lifetime-on-your-hips chestnut on its head. Buoyed by a skin-softening, all-natural ingredients list that is refreshingly free of gobsmacking chemical preservatives, the balms come in five mouthwatering flavors with varying concentrations of Theobroma cacao and the ensuing lip-tinting coverage. (The more copious the amount of chocolate, the warmer the sheen that graces your pillowy soft kisser.)
Françoise sent along two new, highly intoxicating concoctions that have turned me into one of those lipgloss addicts who can't stop smacking their lips: Mojito (lime, mint, and white chocolate) and Berry Pretty (cocoa berry cocktail), the latter of which smelled so headily of raspberry truffles that it took every iota of willpower not to chomp on the entire stick.
The fact that I wouldn't need my stomach pumped after tossing back a tube or two? So not helping.
