Make It Green: Chocolate Facial Mask

How about a little something sweet for the weekend?  Here’s a recipe straight from my book, for a chocolate facial mask made with ingredients you probably already have in your house.  And it’s probably a lot healthier for you than a facial mask made with who-knows-what kind of chemicals.

Whip up a batch, kick back with a book and enjoy!

  1. I have some Greek yogurt that I found I don’t really like so while most will be used in smoothies this could be a good use for some. Thanks!

    Reminds me I need to hurry and get through The Smart Mama’s book and hurry and read yours. 🙂

  2. Hear Mum Roar says:

    What a fantastic, yummy-sounding recipe!

  3. Great way to use up old yogurt!

  4. How fun, I can’t wait to try it out!

    Hi Micaela,
    I wanted to share this great DIY Scrub Recipe that is perfect for dry winter skin:

    1 cup of sugar
    1/2 cup of almond or grape-seed oil
    15 drops of grapefruit essential oil. You may use any other essential oil. If you do not have essential oil you may use lemon for fragrance or use it plain.

    Apply to dry skin for maximum exfoliation, or wet skin for less exfoliation.
    You can use your hands a shower glove or a loofah to scrub all over your body.
    Absolutely Fabulous!

    wow, an eatable face mask, I don’t know, I have my pores quite full and I don’t think eating it would help me, I hope I can help temptation!
    Haha, brilliant idea!

  10. Can this chocolate face mask stay in the refrigerator overnight? We’d like our girls make it an event, bring it home and have the option to use the next day

  11. Hi Marty – Sure, the mask could definitely be used the next day or even a few days later. Hope you enjoy it!


  12. We are doing a Spa night for 6-5 year olds on Saturday. I am going to use this for their facials. Can I put it in a sealed jar to take some home in their treat bags for later use…do you think it needs to be refrigerated the whole time?

  13. Having a slumber party. What’s the chance the girls will break out?
