Uh, YUM: These Skin Products Are Made With Real Chocolate

When a product promises to transform our regular skin care regime into a "deeply indulgent experience," we're of course a bit skeptical. But, this time, we're inclined to agree — and it's all thanks to perhaps the most universally beloved ingredient there ever was. That's right: Pure, sweet, decadent Swiss chocolate is infused in each of the products in the Chocolate Collection from Karin Herzog.
But, what's the big deal? There's chocolate-themed beauty products galore come Valentine's Day. But, as we discovered, not like this. These high-performance products actually count cacao as an ingredient — no artificial scents or dyes here. In fact, considering the skin-boosting properties of chocolate (nutrients and vitamins aplenty) and its natural, way-luxurious scent, we're surprised this is the first time we've heard about a skin care brand harnessing the power of our guiltiest pleasure.
So, although you can't physically ingest this chocolatey indulgence (let's be real, that was our first question, too), you can still delight in its aroma — and of course, the supple, smooth skin you'll be left with post-application. Either way, to us it's worth it if only to have a cream in our medicine cabinet labeled simply "Chocolate!"

Karin Herzog Chocolate!, $55, available at Karin Herzog.
