Sweet Nothings

Crème brulee, sugar cookies and chocolate are the big losers in your resolutionary war of 2010. At least, the edible versions — they’re your arch enemies.

But you can call a truce with their scent-only cousins, Passion Moon Potions. The calorie-free skin care products, made in scrumptious dessert aromas, will let you indulge without the bulge.

Inspired by her love of baking sweets, Francesca Azar makes the all-natural lip balms, body and face creams, scrubs, butters, and salves from scratch in her Kona home.

She starts with fresh, mostly organic ingredients, and creates delectable goodies, such as whipped shea crèmes in scents like chocolate haupia, banana nut bread, or island sugah cookie. Her lip balms are love at first bite – they come in flavors like marshmallow crème, blueberry cheesecake, and spiced apple cider. And the pumpkin pie whipped sugar scrub and white chocolate peach body mousse will leave you looking (and smelling) good enough to eat.

The icing on the cake: her products are vegan-friendly, use natural preservatives, contain no harsh chemicals, and are super-affordable. The moisturizers are around $10, the crèmes about $6, and the lip balms are just a sweet $2.

These tasty indulgences are sure to leave you hungry for more.
Sounds like it’s time for a sweet surrender.

Passion Moon Potions are available online at
