Indulge in the Best Food-Scented Beauty Products

January 8th, 2014 By  |  6 Comments   

 So many people (myself included) resolve to eat healthier in the new year but there’s another way to get your fix of decadent foods, and it’s almost as satisfying as eating them! I’ve rounded up some of the most realistic food-scented beauty products that you can enjoy, minus the calories and the dirty dishes. Not only are these products especially pleasing to our noses, but also, they’re quality items. So why not sweeten up your daily routine? Here are my picks…

 Philosophy Cinnamon Buns 3 in 1 Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath ($17 for 16 oz. size, QVC.com)

This is the grand-daddy of amazing food-scented beauty products. Somehow Philosophy is able to go beyond the smells of sweetness and cinnamon, and actually harness baked goodness in a bottle. You won’t go about your day smelling like the sticky dessert, but for those few minutes in the shower, you’ll be immersed in cinnamon bun heaven. As an added bonus, you can use this as shampoo or bubble bath. And if you are so inclined to take this concept to the kitchen, Philosophy supplies you with a recipe for cinnamon buns right on the bottle.

Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Souffle Body Creme ($55, Sephora.com)

 This body creme feels as good as it smells and makes for an incredibly decadent post-shower treat. If you love the scents of warm caramel, spun sugar, and vanilla bean, you’re in luck. They all combine in this luxurious body cream, and the softly sweet scent lingers throughout the day. Creme Brulee is a rare treat for me, but it’s nice to have daily access to this jar! On a practical note, it really does a good job of softening even the most parched areas of your skin.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer ($30, Sephora.com)

We don’t normally associate luxurious scents with powder products, but this bronzer actually has a chocolatey-sweet scent. It’s not overwhelming, but I can’t help but take a whiff every time I apply it… it’s such a surprising little treat! This is also one of my all-time favorite bronzers. I’ve used up two already, and as you can see, I’m on my way to finishing a third. It’s the perfect cool, matte color to contour your cheekbones, or add a natural-looking bronze tint to the body. Too Faced has recently taken off with the chocolate concept, creating the Chocolate Bar eyeshadow palette. I have a tutorial video with that here, if you’re interested!

ChapStick MixStix Green Apple Caramel Lip Balm ($2.99, Drugstore.com)

A more affordable way to indulge is waiting for you at your local drugstore! If you’re going to apply lip balm, why not have an enjoyable scent and flavor? I was really surprised at how accurately ChapStick pulled off the green apple and caramel scents. The apple side of this balm has a sweet, yet tart scent, and the caramel side smells exactly like those individually wrapped Kraft caramels. I like to apply one side of the balm to my top lip, and the other to my bottom lip for the perfect marriage of these sweet scents and flavors.

I’d love to know what food-scented beauty products are in your stash! Let me know in the comments section :) And if you’d like to see more beauty reviews and tutorials, check out the Beauty Broadcast YouTube channel and blog!

  • I completely agree with you on all the above but especially on the Laura Mercier one…i also have the creme brulee scent and use it on special moments when i want to feel luxurious. Soo good!

  • I think that the Nivea lip butters in “Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss” and “Caramel Kiss” smell good enough to eat. Another product that I haven’t heard much about that has nearly become my holy grail is the “Chocolate” lip balm from Cherry Culture! It is very affordable (often comes free with shipment) and super moisturizing. They also have several other “flavors” including a “Coffee” lip balm that my husband likes.

  • Have not tried any of these Flavor scented products. But can’t wait to especially try the Too-Faced bronzer. A product that I’ve tried and could eat if it was edible is J.R. Watkins Lemon Cream hand and body lotion. It smells amazing!!! Just like a rich lemony dessert. I found mine at Cracker Barrel gift store.

  • Blackberry Blossom Body Lotion & Body Spray. Got as a TSV from QVC. Not only is it delicious, but the lotion makes your skin feel like silk!

  • Philosophy comes up with some of the most yummy scented stuff!!!!

  • Great picks! Especially too faced chocolate solely! Soo yummy!
