For the sweetest treats you can give your body this Easter long weekend, the Urban Rituelle Sweet Treats Sweet Delights Gift Sets are perfect to pack for a mini getaway. RESCU loves the Pomegranate set which includes a travel size Petit Parfum, a Creamy Vegetable Soap with moisturising cocoa butter and a nourishing (and delectable) Lip Balm for super-soft lips.
We feel like a kid in a candy store when it comes to Glasshouse fragrances, and our sweet treat list wouldn’t be complete without the scrumptious Galapagos Kaffir Lime & Cocoa Butter Hand & Body Crème features top notes of kaffir lime, lemon, verbena, and kumquat, middle notes of rockmelon and jasmine. Best of all the cocoa butter base ensures absorption over a few minutes leaving a delicate, almost powdery feel to the skin, whilst satisfying your chocolate cravings.
If even the colour of chocolate sends you into a frenzy, perfect your chocolate brown hue with Schwarzkopf’s new Ultimate Colour Multi-Usage Permanent Colour Foam – the first ever colour foam that can be applied without mixing; the perfect DIY solution to drab hair colour. Just want to update your roots? No problem, the foam remains usable after opening for three years.
For an irresistible chocolate fix whenever you want it, introduce your man to the LYNX Dark Temptation Eau De Toilette, inspired by fresh, gourmet scents and contains notes of subtle chocolate, hot chocolate, amber and red peppercorn.
Sugar, spice and all things ridiculously nice! The hero of Jo Malone’s new Sugar & Spice Collection this Easter is Bitter Orange and Chocolate, and if you’re not a chocolate lover, never fear Jo Malone delivers, as usual, with mouth watering scents from this limited-edition collection. The fragrances were created for moments of pleasure and inspired by delectable ingredients. The fragrances also include Lemon Tart, Redcurrant & Cream, Elderflower & Gooseberry, Ginger Biscuit.
RESCU recommends anything from the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter range for obvious reasons, but seeing as you’re going to have a little extra time on your hands this weekend, go for the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Body Scrub containing natural crushed cocoa beans to exfoliate skin with shea butter and vitamin E to keep your skin moist.
Get your dose of candy with the timeless and sophsticated sensory treat, Prada Candy EDP. If the packaging isn’t enticing enough, this instant classic fragrance’s composition includes an elegant mix of musks in the top, a sensual balsamic vanilla accord of benzoin in the heart and synthetic pop of caramel in the base of the fragrance.
Price: $90 / $129 / $170, 30mL / 50mL / 80mL
