This Chocolate Is Actually Good for Your Skin


Your dreams of a nonfat brownie have come true, sort of. Consider Fresh Cosmetics’ Cocoa Body Exfoliant, a new beauty product that must have been inspired by brownie batter. Unlike many synthetic-smelling chocolate-inspired beauty products, this one is scented like the Momofuku Milk Bar in heaven. And it doesn’t just smell good: The exfoliator, which is made of cocoa butter and coconut oil, contains super-fine granules that easily slough off dead skin, leaving only soft skin behind. Mercifully, the delicious scent doesn’t cling to the skin, so you don’t have to worry about becoming a thirst trap for mosquitoes or dangerous chocaholics.
