The only thing better than hot cocoa on a snow day? Mint hot cocoa on a snow day. Check out this lovely moisturizer that perfectly embodies everything we love about the holiday season: sweets and a good, glittery glow-up.

The best part of our recipes is that you can modify them however you want! For this recipe, we decided to add in a few drops of peppermint oil and skin-safe mica powder for a glittery gold tone. How you customize this is up to you, but we couldn’t resist that lovely combo of mint and cocoa butter.

With three of our all-natural plant oils and added sweet almond oil, this super-powered moisturizer fights even the most blustery weather conditions to keep your skin hydrated and shimmering.
