I know, there are a few odd ducks who don't like chocolate, but for the most part, humans all agree that chocolate is pretty awesome. Avon agrees, as they've got a cocoa crush themselves. They've added cocoa extract to a range of their Planet Spa bath and body products for a delicious experience.

R is for Rodial. At least for today it is. I've tried a fair bit of Rodial skincare, but the three products we're going to chat up are my first foray into their recently expanded makeup range. Can Rodial do makeup as well as they do skincare? You'll have to read on to find out... Spoiler: they can.

Say Buh-Bye to the Winter Dry(ness) | BVSpa by Bon Vital Body Butter

I don't know exactly when you'll read this, as my current self (which by this point is my past self) is getting organized and writing up some posts in advance. Go me! Anyway, at present, it's snowing and the weather is absolute shi sugar, complete with bitter cold. You know where this is going, especially if you tend to have dry skin year round. The combination of indoor heating and the super cold turns skin into a flaky, dry (and if you're lucky) itchy mess. There are many ways to combat the winter dry, but one of my favourites is a liberal slathering of good ol' body butter. My current favourites come from BVSpa by Bon Vital as they smell incredible and bring a hefty does of hydration.
