Enjoy something sweet minus the calories with our picks for 10 sinfully sweet beauty, skin and body products inspired by candy.
A sweet treat for your skin
Is there anything better than indulging in a decadent piece of chocolate? Save yourself some calories but still treat yourself with The Body Shop’s Chocomania body butter (thebodyshop.ca, $20). The chocolate-scented moisturizer provides 48 hours of hydration.
Add a subtle hint of shimmer to your eyes with Urban Decay’s eyeshadow in cotton candy pink (sephora.com, $22), a pretty pastel shade with silver micro-glitter. Not only do we love the colour, but the name of the shade is perfect for any candy lovers out there.
Keep lips smooth and kissable all season with a lip scrub that exfoliates to get rid of dry, flaky skin that can happen in colder months. Get a sweet treat while you exfoliate your pout thanks to this lip scrub in red velvet (ebeauty.ca, $30), one of the most deliciously sweet cupcake flavours around.
Shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath
Even if it’s not your birthday, you can still treat yourself (and get squeaky clean all over) with Philosophy’s Vanilla Birthday Cake shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath, an all-in-one great-smelling product (sephora.com, $21).
Soften your skin and enjoy a tub full of candy-scented bubbles with a LUSH creamy candy bubble bar (lush.ca, $7). The gentle (even for sensitive skin) bars are fun to use and packed with skin-softening cocoa butter.
Dealing with dry skin already? This ultra-moisturizing mousse (sephora.com, $39) comes with the sweet scents of vanilla and caramel, which means not only will your skin be soft, but you’ll also smell good enough to eat.
Give your lips a high-gloss sheen and keep them soft with the help of a sweet, fruity, strawberry-scented gloss (thebodyshop.ca, $10) that reminds us of strawberry candies. The super-shiny gloss offers sheer colour, and it’s naturally flavoured.
Show dry, rough skin the door by adding a body scrub to your beauty routine. We love the sweet, sugary scent of Cake Beauty’s It’s a Slice smoothing brown sugar body scrub (ebeauty.ca, $34). The creamy orange-vanilla scent is great for fall, and the scrub moisturizes as well as exfoliates.
Banish blemishes with the help of this chocolate-mint-scented face mask from LUSH (LUSH, $7, available in store), which calms redness and zaps oil. The minty mask even looks like chocolate frosting (but don’t try to eat it!).
Love gummy bears and popsicles? Both sweet treats are combined in these whimsical glycerine soaps (etsy.com, $5), made to look like gummy bear-stuffed ice pops. The handmade soaps are neon hued and apple scented.
