A Decadent Mistake – Very Chocolatey Face Mask

October 20, 2011

What does the slinky, post-it notes, penicillin and the potato chip have in common? They are all inventions that were made by mistake! And now there’s another great invention to be added to this bunch – my chocolate yogurt face mask.

I had a little bit of yogurt left in the fridge. Not enough for a breakfast dish, but just perfect for a single face mask. So in with a bit of clay, honey, and to top that off, cacao powder. Pouring straight from the jar, carefully, carefully…. And whomp! There goes half the jar of cocoa powder! I thought my face mask was ruined, but still stirred the mixture a little.

I then realized that the cacao was blended into the yogurt just fine, and not only that – it got a completely different texture than I had expected, something closer to a really dark chocolate mousse. And it felt really nice on my skin!

Try this one out! The clay and honey can probably be skipped in this recipe – the key is loads of cacao!

1 tbs thick yogurt
2 tbs cacao powder
1 tsp clay (optional)
1 tsp honey (optional)

Mix everything well until you have a thick paste. Apply to face and neck and leave on for 15 minutes or until the mask is starting to dry. Rinse off with warm water.

    How did you end up liking the mask? I’ve been wanting to play around with cocoa before but was a little unsure. I love Lush’s Cupcake mask so I assume chocolate can’t be that hard to use… I think I’m still stuck on it being a desert haha 🙂
