Attending the Rabot 1745 Press Launch & First Impressions

On Tuesday I was invited for a sneak peek of Rabot 1745, Hotel Chocolat's St. Lucia inspired skincare line. The line is sustainable, cruelty-free, and the ingredients are sourced from the Rabot Estate in St. Lucia, the same estate where Hotel Chocolat sources their cocoa.

Walking into Hotel Chocolat (located across from the Lexington Ave entrance to Grand Central Station) I was instantly greeted by the delightful and inviting scent of chocolate. The lovely Rabot 1745 team shared the brand's history, pointed out some key ingredients, and I was treated to a hand massage and signature drink. I chose the chili coconut hot chocolate and it was delicious, and also impossible to drink without making a mess... which I didn't even mind.

The line, available on both Amazon and the Rabot 1745 site, has a bit of everything! The team graciously gifted me a few items to take home and I wanted to give my first impressions.

Rabot 1745 Coconut Chocolat Lip Balm

I've kept this stashed in my handbag the whole week, and usually I'm really bad at remembering to apply lip balm, but not this week. I've found myself reapplying this multiple times a day. It smells delightful and keeps my lips feeling smooth and soft. I also love the bamboo packaging.

Rabot 1745 Cacao and Wild Honey Hand Cream

I'm not much of a hand cream kind of girl, but I love that this is light and non-greasy! Rabot 1745 might have turned me into a hand cream lover.

Rabot 1745 Cacao and Almond Bath & Body Oil

I had a bit of a self-care night on Thursday evening and used this as my post-shave moisturizer. My legs felt smooth and soft and I didn't feel like I needed to re-moisturize in the morning, which is how I typically feel after shaving.

Rabot 1745 Avocado & Sour Orange Hand Scrub

This stuff is no joke. At the event this was a step during my hand massage and wow my hands felt so soft and smooth after, it also removed a ton of dead skin I didn't even know was there. (Gross I know, lol.) But my hands felt silky after the treatment! Be sure to follow up with the body oil or hand cream to replenish your moisture levels.

You can see more from the launch on my Instagram grid, and 'Events' highlight. Thanks again Rabot 1745 for allowing me to be apart of your U.S. launch!
