Hotel Chocolat’s beauty range are all formulated with a luxurious formula with ingredients sustainably sourced from Hotel Chocolat’s Saint Lucian plantation, so you can relax and unwind for under £20!
Since 1745 the Rabot Estate has farmed cocoa and provided employment for generations of local people. Rabot 1745 Beauty was inspired by the love for Saint Lucia, the people, and the plants that flourish there. Having heard of these incredible products launching, we at Amor had to give them a try.
The first product from their new launch is the avocado and lime smile reviver. The smile reviver polishes your smile naturally with the lime and sugar invigorating and exfoliating all those dead skin cells. It is also housed in Rabot’s signature reusable bamboo pot which is good for the environment. The smile reviver leaves your lips feeling soft and sumptuous.
Another product from the new launch is the wonder balm. The wonder balm is a multi-tasking balm which can do everything from moisturising parched skin, to taming eyebrows and softening cracked cuticles. The wonder balm retails at £9.95 and also comes in the reusable bamboo pot.
This gorgeous body mask features cocoa seed butter which is crammed with vitamins, fatty acids and hydration in a scentastic formula. Skin-soothing apricot oil and nourishing sweet almond oil combine for a blast of hydration, it leaves your body feeling softer than ever before (the chocolate scent is an added bonus!).
Hardworking hands need exfoliation too – this citrus-fresh scrub features ingredients native to St. Lucia, such as sweet almond oil for a blast of hydration, while nourishing avocado and sour orange soften and soothe the skin, leaving your hands soft and fresh.
Taking a therapeutic soak is good for both body and mind. Rabot’s signature mix of antioxidant-rich cocoa and nourishing sweet almond oil makes this aromatic bath oil a real treat. This silky-smooth formula is perfect for the bath, as a massage oil, or for areas with intense dryness!
Moisturising and nurturing your lips, this wonderfully smelling lip balm incorporates coconut oil from St. Lucia that feature skin-nourishing fats rich in antioxidant properties. Mixed with hydrating cocoa seed butter, shea butter and Abyssinian seed oil, one swipe of this balm in the morning will keep your lips soft and supple all day.
Last but certainly not least is my ultimate favourite, the salt and lemongrass scrub. This citrus-fresh nourishing body scrub combines salt with citrus-fresh lemongrass oil, nourishing sweet almond oil and replenishing cocoa seed butter for an uplifting start to the day. Dead skin cells are removed, leaving your skin feeling replenished and smooth.
This scrub is also a Rabot reusable coffee cup that’s 75% biodegradable, crafted from bamboo, corn fibre and wood fibre.
TIP: Take your Rabot 1745 reusable cup into any Hotel Chocolat cafe nationwide for 50p off a hot drink or visit them at the Rabot 1745 cafe at Borough Market for a hot drink completely free of charge.
These products have gone down an absolute storm here at Amor, we love all things beauty, chocolate, and eco-friendly!
