A staggering 180 million eggs were purchased last year for Easter – that is a lot of chocolate! For those of you who love chocolate but are perhaps looking for something different to gift this year, we have put together an essential product guide of all things chocolate - as well as a bit of actual chocolate - to enjoy this Easter!
Fill your home with the beautiful fragrance of Glade's Honey and Chocolate Candle (1) from Wilko. With a pretty glass container designed to quickly fill the room with fragrance and warm light, you can enjoy a consistent scent experience from beginning to end.
Wake me up before you cocoa! Cocoa butter has been used for years in exfoliation products, thanks to its pure, unrefined nature and luxurious moisturising properties. Head to Holland & Barrett for Dr Organic Cocoa Butter Body Scrub (2), enriched with a whole host of bioactive extracts such as aloe vera juice, sweet almond and coconut oil. This unique purifying complex efficiently cleanses away dead skin, leaving the body feeling nourished, silky and soft.
