Chocolate Wrapper Shimmer Cream Recipe



  • This beautiful rich warming cream doubles as a shimmer/ bronzer for evening or day wear. Your skin will be left glowing and smelling of sweet dark chocolate. The perfect treat to warm you up as the weather cools down.


  1. Weigh your Body Custard out into a clean laboratory beaker.
  2. In a separate small heat-proof container measure out the Thermolat® , cocoa CO2 and vanilla. If the cocoa is solid you will need to gently heat this mixture in a water bath to melt it.
  3. Once melted and combined you can add the blend to the body custard using a spatula to mix it in. You will notice the base turning a little brown from the vanilla.
  4. Then get a more powerful mixer (a bar mixer is fine) to hand. Weigh the mica out into the cream and use the bar mixer to mix this fully into the base. Your product will look like a dark chocolate shimmer.
  5. Pop into a container and store ready for use.


  • The Thermolat® can make the skin feel hot, it will not actually burn the skin, it is just interacting with your nerve impulses. However, care should be taken to not handle this ingredient with bare hands and to avoid the eye area as you may feel like this ingredient is stinging. The heating effect feeling will vary from person to person with some people feeling it very strongly and others not much at all. The heating sensation is typically felt more strongly on more delicate skin (back of neck, stomach etc than on the skin of the arms and legs. Take care when heating the fragrance component, do not use an open flame, only heat gently to around 40-50°C max using a water bath. This is just to soften the Cocoa butter. Always test a small sample of the product before using it all over. While these products may smell like they are edible we do not recommend ingesting them.
