While Easter might seem like an excuse for a big chocolate binge, there are ways to get a cocoa fix without the extra calories… We’re talking chocolate-inspired beauty products!
Plus, this year The Easter Bunny has decided to flip the script on traditional chocolate eggs with a sugar-free alternative. Introducing – beauty Easter eggs! Similar to the beauty advent calendar craze, these pretty eggs are packed with beauty treats for a spot of pampering without the sugar crash!
So whether you or your friends are vegan (and struggling to find non-dairy chocolate), or if you’re just avoiding chocolate (or even don’t like chocolate!), these beauty treats are a great way to share some Easter love and replenish your beauty stash at the same time!
