Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe

mask lick 150x150 Chocolate Facial Mask RecipeAs promised, I am posting the recipe for the Chocolate Facial Mask. Boy is it yummy!

Chocolate Facial Mask:
1/3 c. cocoa powder
3 T. heavy cream
1/4 c. honey
2 tsp. cottage cheese
3 tsp. oatmeal – I think baby oatmeal would work great if you have some!
Mix all ingredients together (a bullet blender is ideal – Amy’s notes: I used a regular blender, but a food processor might be better) and smooth onto face. Relax for 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
***If you experience irritation, rinse immediately.

I got feedback from two testers on this recipe. I’ll share my own as well.
Brandi, age 16:
Skin type: combination
How did it make your skin feel?: soft
Any redness or irritation?: no
Will you use this recipe again?: yes

Kristy, age 35:
Skin type: combination
How did it make your skin feel?: Funky with the mask on. Ha! No, I think after I took the mask off, my skin felt soft. Wasn’t dry or pasty feeling.
Will you use this recipe again?: Sure, I think so. I didn’t have any problems with it, and my skin felt more soft, or maybe smooth is a better word.

As for me, I thought it felt really nice. I would classify my skin type as combination as well. My skin definitely felt soft & smooth, but I did experience a little bit of redness. Nothing that would stop me from using it again though! Mmmmm, chocolate.

  2. how long can this store I was wondering if you can make it ahead and use as party favors for the bachelorette party for my daughter

  3. @Kristi – I’m sure it would be fine for up to a week in the refrigerator. Take it out early so it isn’t cold when it’s time to apply!
