If you're a chocolate lover like me, you're bound to love some of these beauty products I'm about to share with you. Over the last month, I've been testing yummy body butters, lip balms and spa treatments that have left me with quite a sugar rush. Here's my pick of the top 5 cocoa delights:
1. Chocolate Body Wrap with Massage
Savana Spa, Westbourne Grove, London
The chocolate body wrap is an hour of pure bliss! I experienced this at the Savana Spa in London. They use pure cocoa butter with natural sugars to wrap your skin in a cocoon of chocolate goodness! The wrap conditions your skin whilst you're indulged in a hydrating chocolate face masque and relaxing head massage. The treatment really does help to lift the spirits as I had a pretty bad start to the day but left the spa feeling upbeat and delicious. You can book online via View London for the lowest price.
2. 24 Hour Naked - Coco de Mer Body Butter
This is just pure, gorgeousness in a jar. The scent alone is enough to satisfy your chocolate craving and with the added benefits of Shea butter, passionflower extracts and coconut, it really does what it promises and keeps your skin moisturised for a full 24 hrs. What's more it contains 97% natural ingredients and minimum preservatives, just enough to make it last the distance but gentle enough for sensitive skin like mine. Be careful with this one girls - it's addictive.

3. Jelly Pong Pong Gourmet Lip Therapy
Blended with real sugar, honey and cocoa, this tinted lip glosses is heaven on the lips. It costs a little more than I would normally spend on a gloss but after trying it myself, I think it's well worth the money. It hydrates the lips far better than some of the cheaper alternatives and it leaves the lips looking soft, supple with a little bit shine that's not overly sticky. You only need a little to get your chocolate fix and with the delicious scent on your lips, you just may find that you can say no to that tempting packet of Minstrels. Is Gourmet Lip Therapy a new way to curb those chocolate cravings? It just might be....

4. Ciaté Paint Pot - Guest list
It doesn't smell like of cocoa, but it sure does look a chocolate explosion on the nails. This mouth-watering shade looks terrific against tanned skin and I found the flat brush a doodle to use in applying the colour. Not only does it look fab on the nails, the packaging is adorable with its chic little bow. This is definitely a bottle to display on the dresser.

5. Ishi Gianduja Chocolate Body Oil
Ooh la la! This oil has a lovely nutty, chocolate aroma that is wonderful on your skin or indeed on someone else *Ahem!* It's light and non greasy which helps it to absorb easily and it's great for sensitive skin. I used it after showering and it really does lock in the moisture and leaves you smelling good enough to eat.
