I saw a special on FoodTV about the Hershey Spa and found this recipe on the internet. Note that "prep time" includes the time needed for leaving the facial on your face.
- 1⁄2 cup cocoa powder
- 4 tablespoons heavy cream
- 3 teaspoons cottage cheese
- 3 teaspoons ripe avocados
- 1⁄4 cup honey
- 3 tablespoons oatmeal, powder
- In a bowl, mix ingredients together.
- Apply to face.
- Leave on face for ten minutes.
- When taking off the facial, try patting the face with a warm washcloth to dampen before removing.
- Apply moisturizer.
DD and I made this. While it smells wonderful, it is a little hard to get off. When you do though, your skin will feel fabulous. We have different skin types but will both make it again. Made for Comfort Cafe Snow Queen 2010.
I haven't tried this yet, but I'll definitely update this when I do. It sounds fun! But in response to winkki, heavy cream can be kind of rough on sensitive skin. Natural or organic yogurt might be something you could substitute it with.
Wow. I don't know if it was the astringent qualities of the honey or what, but when my daughters and I tried this we ended up with reactions that looked like bad sunburns...bright red, slightly puffy and very hot skin. It went away quickly and left very soft and smooth skin, but probably not something we'll try again. It sure was fun while it lasted, though, and the girls thought it was funny to put something that looked and smelled like brownie batter on their faces. ;o) Thanks for posting anyway!
