Treat your skin AND your senses with this fabulous smelling facial mask. Great for dry skin. While you are allowing this to work on your face, try it also on your hands, elbows, knees, or anywhere that is dry! Kick back and relax with a nice glass of wine and some soft music. You deserve it! NOTE: After some great input from Momaphet I wanted to share with everyone. If you are using the cream option it will be thinner than with the yogurt. You may want to use the smallest amount possible and maybe add a bit more cocoa to keep it thicker. Enjoy!
- Combine ingredients using just enough yogurt or cream to make a soft paste. The key here is a paste not a liquid. You want it very very thick so it will not run. If the mixture can 'run' off the spoon it will run off your skin.
- Apply to freshly cleansed face and throat.
- Kick back and relax for 10-15 minutes.
- Rinse off with warm water and pat dry with a clean soft towel.
I loved the smell of this mask, but it was difficult to keep on my face it, the oil made the chocolate paste roll off, I had to add a little water to change the consistency so it would stay. After rinsing even thought there was a residue from the oil which in one sense made it softer it also felt tight, and made my skin itch a little so I had to put on moisturizer. I prefered it for the back of my hands then on my face. Made for I Recommend tag April 09
Winter has taken it's toll and my skin is sooo dry. Yet I am reluctant to spend money on those expensive treatments. This was perfect, a home treatment using ingredients I always have at home. Worked beautifully on my skin and I am thinking it might be nice as a hand treatment. The key here is to be really stingy with the yogrt/cream so it sits on your face while soaking in. Thanks Mama.

This mask sure did leave my skin nice and soft and it smelled wonderful while it was on. I had some trouble getting it spread on my face though, not sure if that was my fault or not. Also, make sure you are in the bath or going to rinse off in the shower, it can get messy :)
