No, I’m not talking about those nights you wake up salivating, having dreamt of a bar of Cadbury’s (because, God knows, that never happens to me) – I’m talking about chocolate, delicious, creamy chocolate, in the form of a lip balm. Well, obviously.

(As an aside, I went to my fridge the other day and one or other of my housemates had eaten half of a Butler’s chocolate sweet. Half. I think this smacks of some kind of mental disorder, as I can’t eat limit myself to eating half a packet of Dorito’s, which we all know is massive, let alone half of a small, delicious chocolate.)

This is Lush‘s Whip Stick, a delicious lip balm that looks, smells, and tastes like whipped chocolate. I first experienced its chocolatey aroma on a friend, and then high-tailed it to the store at the bottom of Grafton St (which, incidentally, has had a revamp and is looking better than ever) to pick up my own – which cost me around €7.

In any case, this post will be short because there’s not much more to say. The lip balm is super-soft, super-sweet and so delicious, and infused with oat, honey and shea butter, so really there’s not much more you could want.
