Their Chocolate Wrapper spa treatment is the perfect way to get your chocolate fix – and it’s calorie free.

The treatment begins with a full body exfoliation, using Citrus Blush body scrub, a salt, sugar and coconut shell scrub infused with clove, ginger and citrus oil and enriched with kukui nut oil.

After a shower to wash off the scrub you’re on to the main event – the warm chocolate body mask. It smells divine, just like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange, thanks to its ingredients: cocoa, cocoa butter, orange essential oil and shea butter.

Cocooned in the luxurious mask, you’re wrapped up in foil – just like a chocolate bar – to encourage pores to open and the mixture to nourish your skin.

While you’re all wrapped up you’ll receive a soothing head massage, making it a top-to-toe experience.

After washing off the chocolate mask, the final step is the application of Citrus Blush body butter, to leave your skin deeply moisturised.

The whole treatment was so delicious I didn’t want it to end. Sadly it hasn’t put paid to my chocolate cravings – instead it’s just added another one to the list!

•The treatment is available at all Champneys spas, including Milton Keynes, Henlow and Tring.
