How to Look Yummy: 10 Food-inspired Beauty Products

Almost good enough to eat.


( We admit: we love food as much as the next person. Okay, fine, maybe even more. From flaky Cronuts, chewy chocolate chip cookies, frothy milkshakes, to savory red velvet cupcakes, it’s safe to say we will pretty much devour anything. So it's easy for us to mistake the cosmetics counter for an extension of a patisserie with all the beauty products peppered with food-based ingredients these days. From eyeliners to fruity body butter, these beauty products have got us drooling.


LUSH Vanilla Dee-lite (P995)

Whoever said vanilla was the plain Jane of the bunch is wrong. It’s sweet, comforting, and alluring. It doesn’t hurt that it comes in the form of a body lotion, too, making us want to slather it on all day.

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter (P695)

It’s pretty clear why this tart red fruit is proving to be the du jour scent of most lotions and moisturizers. The Body Shop’s iteration is a bestseller.
