Rabot 1745 Fruited Chocolat Lip Balm Review and Swatches

Did you know that Hotel Chocolat has launched its very own beauty range called Rabot 1745? This post introduces Rabot 1745 and gives a brief introduction to what you can find within the range and of course this Lip Balm.

Admittedly I hadn't until a blogger press day when I got to give a few products a bit of a swatch and then bag myself a lip balm!

The range is divided into four categories and is said to have been inspired by Hotel Chocolat’s Saint Lucian cacao plantation, Rabot Estate and if you have never seen it or even heard of it, then literally I want to move there it is just stunning. The brand founders spent four years restoring the 250-year old estate before opening a hotel and restaurant nestled within the cacao groves.

The collection includes body butter, hand creams, shower gel, hand wash, a body mask, a scrub, a candle, a wonder balm, a body mist, a reed diffuser, a perfume. In total the range features around 25 products and that includes lip balms, which I am sharing with you in today's blog post.

I am a huge fan of lip balms and I have lost count by the number I have used up already this year, for me they are an integral part of my daily routine and something I am constantly applying to my lips. From Rabot 1745, I was kindly given this Fruited Chocolate Lip Balm (£7) and oh my, as you might have thought, it smells insanely good, almost good enough to eat.

This lip balm is not only rich in essential oils but it also contains a natural blend of almond oil, Sunflower seed oil, cacao butter and rosemary leaf extract and as soon as you remove the top, the beautiful scent of cacao and almond oil come to life. The balm is a solid balm, but it melts with the heat of your finger as you rub it across the top and once you apply to the lips, it doesn't have a greasy or tacky feeling to it but it is incredibly moisturising. 

Would I recommend this Lip Balm? 

There is absolutely nothing that I dislike about this lip balm, I love the packaging with the wooden pot, I like that it is a solid balm, I like how it smells and I love how moisturising it is for my lips. 

Have you tried anything from the Rabot 1745 range and if so, do you have a product you have absolutely loved?
