Hot Chocolate Bath?

Are you a chocoholic? This may be the product for you! Cadbury is about to launch a new range of bath products which will smell like three new flavors of it’s Dairy Milk bar.

The confectionary giant has joined forces with cosmetic company Anatomicals to create a truffle bath creme, toffee body butter and a hazelnut exfoliating wash.

But sweet-toothed fans of the brown stuff won’t be able to pick this chocolate treat up from any old corner shop. The limited edition products will only be available from John Lewis and online fashion store asos.com.

Cadbury’s Bliss bars launched in September last year, while the range of good-enough-to-eat bath products will be available to buy in June.

This is the first time Cadbury has dipped its toe into this new market, which it hopes will attract young females and support what they call the ‘luxury theme’ of the Bliss brand.

I don’t know about this one. I’ve never smelled a chocolate beauty product that smelled good to me. I don’t think I’d want my body to smell like chocolate. I’d have to try this and see what I think. Feel free to send me a sample. :)

Anti-Aging prep should begin in your 20′s!

Dr. Leonard Tachmes (Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who recently opened his own practice: Miami Beach Plastic Surgery Center & MedSpa) believes that anti-aging tips should be started in your 20’s for preventative measures and to create an anti-aging regimen. “When clients approach their 30’s, they really start to notice early signs of aging from small wrinkles to brown spots on their hands – one of the true age-tellers found on the body. It is never too soon to take measure to protect the skin and to preserve a youthful appearance.”

“With over 17 years of experience, I find that most of my clients are unaware of how sensitive the skin is on their hands – - the most exposed part of their body!”

Dr. Tachmes’ non-treatment anti-aging tips include:

1. Wear driving gloves – throughout the year, as early as your 20s…today’s suntan leads to tomorrow’s fine lines, wrinkles and age spots as cracked skin and small wrinkles are a result of exposure to cold weather elements

2. Wear cleaning gloves – penetrating your hands in extremely hot water containing bleaches, degreasers, soaps and anti-bacterial agents have chemicals that dry out the skin – try applying a nice balm to the hands before you clean in case water seeps inside and…the heat from the water can also be beneficial to penetration of product

3. Exfoliate your hands every week with an enriched, oil-based scrub once a week to allow even penetration of moisturizers

4. Apply SPF 30 (or higher) onto your hands just as you would to your face – everyday

5. Apply tint to car windows – even in the winter months, the sun’s rays still have UV rays that are equally damaging

6. Eliminate the practice of chewing cuticles (can cause loose, torn skin that will eventually crack) and cracking knuckles (can cause enlarged knuckles and increased wrinkles) when under pressure – find a non-aging solution that will not affect your skin’s appearance

Do you worry about your hands? I’m 33, and only thing I do regularly is moisturize. Maybe I need to step it up a bit!

New Laser-Free Resurfacer containing “Dragon’s Blood Complex”

Peter Thomas Roth has released a new Laser-Free Resurfacer™ containing what they call the “Dragon’s Blood Complex”. The advanced serum is said to repair, resurface, regenerate, and renew skin from the first application.

According to PTR, “Skip the laser but get the results. This serum undoes damage to recapture youth. With 33.5% Dragon’s Blood™ Complex, it helps lessen the noticeable signs of aging that result from time, sun, and environmental damage while dramatically improving texture and tone.”

Dragon’s Blood™ Complex is a patent pending concentrate featuring Dragon’s Blood (5%), a naturally red extract from the Amazon’s Croton Lechleri tree proven to help accelerate skin damage repair. This serum is also formulated with Phytomoist Qusome™ (10%), Aquafill™ (5%), DRC Qusome™ (4%), plus a blend of Derm SRC™, Chromocare™, Niacinamide PC™ and Alistin® (9.5%).

Reportedly – in just four weeks, this product helps boost elastin by 61%, diminishes wrinkles and lines by 56%, and increases pro-collagen by 84%. Dull, aging, overexposed skin is repaired and renewed.

One reviewer on Sephora said: “Does exactly what it says – I noticed a difference from the first day. My skin felt softer and smoother, and after a little more than a week, I’ve noticed a spot left from an acne blemish has started to fade. My skin feels so smooth to the touch and the tone is so even. Best of all, it just feels like velvet on the skin – no stinging, no burning, just beautiful skin. I will never be without this!”

I haven’t tried this product, but I’d like to! For $75 – it’s going to have to contain actual Dragon’s Blood, though.
