Good Enough to Eat - Hotel Chocolat Cocoa Juvenate

I smell awesome...REALLY...I do, every time I move or wave an arm about I get a waft of gorgeous aromas and it is coming from me!

I'm not being odder than usual, honest! I have been extremely lucky and was nominated by my very lovely friend; Jo over at the Adequate Parent. Thank you so very much & for your lovely words Jo! x

Jo was reviewing an item from the Cocoa Juvenate range by Hotel Chocolat & was asked to nominate somebody to receive their item of choice.
I was the lucky recipient and I chose the body butter which is beautiful! It smells amazing in the pot, glides on effortlessly, soaks in without any residue and leaves you smelling just plain yummy!

Top notes of creamy cocoa butter laced with lime, tones of bergamot but the outstanding scent is of the warming sandalwood which lingers for hours; giving heady, aromatherapy to your senses!
I absolutely love it and recommend it just for a luxurious treat or if like me you suffer from dry skin, a perfect nourishing moisturiser!

I didn't realise Hotel Chocolat manufactured a skin range and I am so happy they do! Other products in the range include bath oil and a luxury hand cream (I haven't eaten it honest!) “Made with handpicked premium ingredients including: Organic West Indian cocoa butter & Moroccan argan oil to help nourish, soften and smooth the skin.”

You may have noticed I am a little late with this post for Mother's Day. Due to a delivery problem with Royal Mail I received the product too late but I am still allowed to nominate a blogger to receive a treat fit for a Queen and as Mothers should be celebrated every day why not indeed!

So my nomination goes to my very best friend and I wrote a poem......

 I sat in the interview nervous, head in a book
nobody looked up or gave a second look.
I glanced around and saw her sat there
all pretty and reading with flowing red hair
"You look like Gabby from Neighbours"
I blurted without thinking; aloud for all to hear
"Thank you - I think as I have no idea
of who she is" she replied and gave me a grin
I waffle when I'm nervy and easily could down a gin
or 3 when things get to tough
and after the interview I'd had enough!
But we both got the job
& travelled real far
& met in the hotel and propped up the bar
and trained for 5 days
& did bonding techniques
if this was the job; the outlook was bleak
I did get very hammered
snogged my boss to be
She gave me a talking to
and made me black coffee!
So we worked in the store
selling a new fangled invention
a 'mobile phone' with no wires for connection!
20 years ago that was now
life has passed on at speed
boyfriends, husbands, births & deaths
she is the only friend I ever need
If you could choose a sister
to be there on your course
then she would be my number one
and I'd never have remorse
So Sonya please take this poem
and accept this gift from me.
as to me you are my shining light
& without you I can't be....

I was not paid for this review but I did receive the product for free, this did not influence this review.
