Beauty buys for the sweet tooth
Treat yo’self - and everyone else - this Easter with the kind of sweets that don’t pack on the kgs: beauty products.
Wasn’t Christmas only two weeks ago? It sure feels like it and yet, here we are not being able turn our trolley without running into a stand full of Creme eggs or hot cross buns. So, it appears Easter is definitely upon us. And for some of us Easter is kryptonite, full of all the delicious chocolatey goodness that we know we should say no to, but… it’s just so damn tasty! But then, on the flip side, you’ve been working SO hard to undo all that Xmas overindulgence damage that you don't want to reverse in one binge session. So, what to do? Don’t stress! We have the perfect way to get into the Easter spirit and still be sugar-free. Just take the sugar craving to your beauty cupboard with these delicious and guilt-free sweet treats that will keep on giving way past the month of April.
Mouth-watering scents: Since scent has the most powerful recall of all the senses, sprtizing yourself in a yummy, sugary scent will almost be as good as wolfing down that delicious cupcake in real life. Plus, with Demeter Fragrance Library’s huge range of sugar-inspired scents, you’ll find your perfect fragrance match whether your vice is baked goods, candy or ice cream.
Here’s some of our faves:
Demeter Fragrance Library Caramel Cologne Spray, $29.95: Rich and warm, sweet, syrupy and a little bit sexy.
Demeter Fragrance Library Chocolate Chip Cookie Cologne Spray, $29.95: Like a waft of freshly baked cookies straight from the oven. Drool.
Demeter Fragrance Library Cotton Candy Cologne Spray, $29.95: Sweet, sugary and super-playful, it’s like wearing your childhood memories.
Sumptuous hand creams: Give your hands the gift this Easter by slathering them in a rich, moisturising hand cream that will help them repair from all the environmental damage - plus have you smelling like a cake shop too.
Tokyo Milk ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ Hand Cream, $34.95: Sugarcane, coconut milk and vanilla, your hands will smell almost good enough to eat.
Love & Toast Honey Coconut Hand Cream, $14.95: Sweet honey mixed with sugared vanilla. What’s not to love about that delicious combo?
Lip treats: You know the saying “a moment on the lips forever on the hips”? Not so with these treats that will whip your lips into shape, and keep them hydrated all while smelling all sorts of yum. It’s as close as you can get to the real thing.
Tokyo Milk Dark Salted Caramel Lip Balm, $14.95: How is something that smells and tastes so good actually be good for you? That’s thanks to the vitamin E and aloe which hydrate and soothe the lips, giving us another excuse to reapply.
Royal Apothic Scrubbie Lip Scrub in Macaroon, $10: Natural sugars help to gently exfoliate the lips to keep them plump and soft - not to mention tasting damn fine too.
