A yogurt face mask, a ground coffee scrub, a honey cleanser … using food items in DIY beauty remedies is no hot news. In this list, however, you’ll find homemade beauty recipes with a different ‘foodie’ twist.
Instead of containing food items (albeit some natural ingredients are still food-grade or edible), this overview contains DIY beauty recipes that are inspired BY foods.
That’s right. They are specifically made to look like food items, or are inspired by a certain food item. Intrigued yet?
Before you go any further, be warned. Scrolling down this list might make your stomach rumble (Don’t you always get hungry when you see “food”?). So grab a snack, make a cup of hot chocolate or tea and get cozy.
And, let the countdown begin!
Bath Melt ‘Cookies’
It’s dangerous to leave these bath melts out on platter, because someone might actually take a bite! Despite their appearance these are not for eating. But they will make your bath water smell like chocolate heaven!
Hot Cocoa Bath Bombs
Including a deliciously decadent looking faux frosting! This easy “frosting” is made using just left over bath bomb mix and coconut oil. Add some sprinkles and a cinnamon stick, and it will be hard for anyone to tell the difference between these bath bombs and an actual hot chocolate beverage.
Gingerbread House Bath Bombs
What’s better than a bath bomb inspired by our favorite Holiday? A bath bomb inspired by our favorite holiday Food! Although these bath bombs keep their signature round shape, they still resemble a cute gingerbread house.
Chai Latte Lotion Bars
From Hot Cocoas to Chai Latte. Whatever hipster beverage you prefer, these homemade lotion bars will sure be a hit with anyone you know. And bonus: this recipe is made entirely without beeswax, so it’s vegan too!
Chocolate Truffle Massage Bars
These single serving sized cocoa lotion bars were inspired by the once very popular Soft Coeur massage bars from Lush. You have to admit. Wrapped in a cute box like this, these butter bars look (and smell) exactly like chocolate truffles.
Cinnamon Swirl Lotion Bars
Another lotion bar recipe inspired by yet another delicious food. This time the honors go to Cinnamon Rolls. One of my favorite guilty pleasures during Fall season.
Coffee Bean Massage Bars
Another classic lotion massage bar is this vanilla latte inspired recipe. Coffee beans not only add a nice scent. They also give you some extra massage power when you rub the bar over your skin.
Matcha Latte Bath Bombs
These Matcha Latte inspired bath bombs even have the iconic swirl on top. The green color comes from actual matcha powder, a great natural colorant! Pair with vanilla oleoresin essential oils and your favorite coffee shop drink just turned into a fragrant bath treat.
Kiwi Lip Scrub
This lip scrub was not only inspired by kiwis. It’s also made with kiwi! This instant lip scrub uses the power of exfoliating fruit acids and the scrubbing benefits of sugar. The cute color and floating seeds is just an added bonus!
Virgin Mojito Body Scrub
When you think of a mojito cocktail sans alcohol you basically get sugar, lime and mint. And let that be the ideal combination for a scrumptious body scrub!
Summer Fruit Sugar Scrubs
They might look quirky with their square shape, but you easily detect what summer fruit they were inspired by!
Birthday Cake Bath Melts
These fun, colorful bath melts are a treat on any day, but especially when it’s your Birthday!
