5 Brands of Raw Cacao Chocolate for the Healthy Chocolate Lover

As you may know, I’m all for raw cacao as the alternative choice to your regular chocolate and that’s because my Raw Cacao Body Scrub is packed full of it! Raw Cacao is the raw, unprocessed version of ‘cocoa powder’, the key ingredient when making chocolate or chocolate flavoured goodies. By keeping cacao powder in its raw state, it retains more of its nutrients and antioxidant power. No wonder it’s considered a superfood! Raw cacao contains essential vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, omega 6 fatty acids and vitamin C, to help nourish your skin and target the appearance of ageing, stretch marks, dry skin and more. Check me out here and I promise to turn your shower into a chocolate milkshake for the skin!

So, whilst raw cacao is great to rub all over your skin, it’s also pretty great to eat. That’s why I’ve compiled a list of five brands that provide you with chocolate made from raw cacao, and you don’t have to be a health nut to make the switch…

How Long Does Buddy Scrub Last?

Hey gorgeous, by now you might be pretty familiar with my outfits – Raw CacaoGreen Tea and Activated Charcoal. Each bag comes with 200 grams of natural scrubbing goodness to exfoliate, nourish and moisturise your skin.

Depending on how much scrub you use and how often you scrub up with me, will depend on how long I last before you’re scrambling back to www.buddyscrub.com.au to get more of me. If you scrub one to two times a week, which is recommended, and use small handfuls of scrub I should last around 6-8 scrubs.

If you don’t scrub that often, that’s ok but I don’t really like hanging out in bathroom cupboards and would much prefer being with you. Scrubbing at least once a week is the perfect way to ensure your skin is regularly rid of dry skin and dirt, and that your skin is being provided with nourishing oils, essential vitamins and minerals.

How Do I Use Buddy Scrub?

 

So you’ve seen me around and think it’s about time we got a little dirty together. You get me home to your place, take off your clothes and get into a hot shower with me. You slowly rip off my top and take a peek at the goodness I have to offer you. It’s about time we got better acquainted, after all I am the ultimate friend with benefits. But what’s the best way to get what you want from me? Well, here are my tips on making this a shower date to remember:

  1. Make sure you wet your body in the shower
  2. Take a small handful of me by either tilting my bag into your hand or using a spoon. Make sure to seal me up afterwards to avoid water getting in my bag.
  3. Gently rub me over your body in circular motions to exfoliate your skin.
  4. You can choose to leave me on your skin for a few minutes to let the nourishing ingredients and oils absorb, or you can wash me straight off under the shower water.
  5. My natural plant based oils should leave a thin layer of oil on your skin which will absorb into your skin and keep it hydrated. If you have naturally oily skin, you might like to use some body wash to remove any excess oil.
  6. Now your skin is exfoliated, nourished and moisturised all in one and all with completely natural ingredients.

Make sure we keep this fling a regular thing.
