Chocolate-Dipped! #NaturalBeautyGoddess

Press Sample.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

Yesterday, I rubbed coffee all over my body.  Today, I'm doing it with chocolate.  Well, cocoa butter.  Smells like chocolate, though.

I've become a big fan of the butters for skin care - shea, cocoa, coconut oil (technically a butter) because they not only help seal in moisture like oils do, but they actually contain moisture, which oils do not. 
Natural Beauty Goddess Cocoa Butter is pure, raw, and unrefined - which means it has no additives, and it hasn't been chemically processed or deodorized.  It's very solid and hard at room temperature, smells deliciously like chocolate, and contains all the fatty acids, nutrients, and antioxidants that can only be found in unrefined butters.  Natural Beauty Goddess goes further in using organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, and Kosher certified cocoa butter.
Like most natural, raw butters, it's hard.  Very hard.  You can't really just open the jar and put some on.  I like to use a knife or scraper to loosen some flakes, and then apply them straight to my body, but I've also found a lot of recipes for a whipped butter - usually mixed with shea and coconut butters, and a liquid oil - that I want to try.  I'm torn, though - I really love the smell of the pure cocoa butter, and I'm not sure if I want to mix it with anything else!
For moisturizing and treating skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema, there's nothing like the protection of Cocoa Butter.  It's known for being helpful in preventing stretch marks by increasing the skin's elasticity.

Nailart inspired by the Natural Beauty Goddess logo!  I created a side gradient with Sinful Colors Pragmatic and Orly Plum Sugar, then stamped the flowers with Milani Black Swift.
There are few things as pampering as a rich moisturizing treatment that smells like chocolate! I have definitely been missing out on this simple ingredient, but I'm never going to be without it now!  For more information, or to purchase, you can find Natural Beauty Goddess Cocoa Butter on Amazon, where a large, 1 lb jar currently sells for $14.95.

Have you tried Cocoa Butter?
