Nearly anything chocolate can be considered a treat. And while the concept of covering yourself in chocolate may seem like a silly indulgence, its hydrating properties for your skin are truly remarkable. The cocoa butter soothes and hydrates while the aromatherapy component is enough to make your sense delighted. It’s the no calorie chocolate fix. But where can you get yourself properly coated in chocolate goodness? Haute Living presents the top 5 chocolate spa treatments in Boston to help you on your chocolate quest.
