Sweet Skin Care
Sweet Skin Care
"Freezing air. Chapping winds. Whatever winter dishes out, fight dryness with dessert! No mere cream puffs, these finds are effective and indulgent."
Excerpts from a fragrance editorial, Looking Good, in Rachael Ray Every Day magazine's December 2015 issue.
Sweet-Talk Your Skin
The Body Shop
The grown-up answer to sugar plums dancing in your head? Sugared plums softening your skin. The Body Shop Body Butter in Frosted Plum is so yummy, you'll want to binge-apply, yet also so rich, a little goes a long way.
Cocoa Body Exfoliant
Scaly skin? Just the excuse to slather yourself in chocolate. Or at least in Fresh Cocoa Body Exfoliant, an antioxidant-rich concoction of crushed cocoa and coconut shell that buffs like nobody's business.
Ask a superstar French pastry chef to dream up body products, which L'Occitane did for the Pierre Herme holiday collection, and you get combos as delish on your skin as in his desserts. Our fave? The Grapefruit Rhubarb Body Lotion.
La Petite Souffles
A pastry case for your body, Laura Mercier La Petite Souffles Body Creme Collection includes such mouthwatering whipped creams as Fresh Fig and Creme de Pistachio.

Peppermint Stick Soap
Ice cream and cany canes morph into sweet shoppe-worthy suds in Lather Mint Chocolate Swirl Soap and Peppermint Stick Soap, each packed with hydrating natural oils.
$10 each, lather.com
Heels, elbows and any other rough patches will feel (and smell) great on contact with Farmshouse Fresh Marshmallow Melt All-Purpose Shea Butter Balm, a cocoa seed butter-spiked salve.
Coconut Milk Facial Cream
Giving new meaning to sweet cheeks, Promise Organic Nourishing Coconut Milk Facial Cream with Mango is soothing and scrumptious - but subtle enough to spare your nose any sensory overload.
Vaseline Lip Therapy
Almost as rich as the dish that inspired it, Vaseline Lip Therapy Creme Brulee helps heal and seal chapped lips. You may even be able to prevent them if you start applying it early enough in the season.
