Five for Friday: Dessert-Scented Beauty Products

It's been a bit of a stressful week, friends. And stress makes me want to EAT. But since I'd rather not mess with my bikini bod, I'm reaching for some deliciously-scented body goodies instead. Behold, five of my favorite dessert-scented products:

Laura Mercier Creme de Pistache Souffle Body Creme. Here's how I described it when I first tried it: "like the most decadent pistachio ice cream - it has the sweetness of almond, but it's creamier and not quite as sweet. In total, you'll detect a little praline, a little almond, a little cream, a little hazelnut - and of course, the delicate aroma that's unmistakably pistachio." In other words, it's freaking delicious.

Philosophy Creme Brulee 3-in-1. It'll be a cold day in hell when I turn away from Philosophy's deliciously dessert-scented body washes. Of late, Creme Brulee is my favorite, though, oddly, I don't care for the real thing in the least. Warm, creamy, full of delicious vanilla...I'm in love.

Viva La Juicy. The praline note gets me every time. Viva La Juicy is gourmand without throwing it in your face, and comforting and sweet while still maintaining its position as an actual perfume (as opposed to, you know, a cake-scented body spray). Notes include: Notes: wild berries, mandarins, honeysuckle, gardenia, jasmine, amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood, and praline.

Cake Beauty Desserted Island Supremely Rich Bath & Shower Froth. Vanilla and coconut. 'Nuff said, right? I like this one because the coconut's not stuffy or plasticky, making this shower gel the perfect combo of dessert + tropical vacation.

Votre Vu Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Creme. I wrote about this one a couple of weeks ago, and I'm still obsessing over it. Almond and coconut-scented hand cream, with a pot of coconut cream lip balm in the cap? You'll want to eat your lips AND your hands.
