Chocolate Covered Strawberry Face Mask


Mountain Rose Herbs is having a Sweetheart Recipe Exchange Contest with some pretty delicious prizes from the mega-talented artisans at Poppy Swap. I crafted this all-natural Chocolate Covered Strawberry Face Mask to enter into the contest.   My Soul Mate usually surprises me with chocolate covered strawberries and a bouquet of beautiful roses on Valentine's day, which is what inspired me to craft this scrumptious all-natural beauty recipe.


Sweet-smelling and succulent Strawberries are kissed by delectable dark cocoa powder then blended with delightful dried rose petals, skin- fancying Rhassoul clay, sweet-scented vanilla extract, conditioning aloe vera gel and comforting vegetable glycerin to create a scrumptious and nourishing facial mask for your Valentine.  
You gently massage this mask over your face, your chest and even in your hair. Relax to some romantic music for up to 30 minutes, and then rinse off with warm water.  

Simple and all-natural ingredients.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Face Mask
125 grams fresh strawberries
25 grams Cocoa powder

5 grams dried rose petals
25 grams aloe vera gel
15 grams Vanilla extract (click here to learn how to make your own)

Mix all the ingredients together in a small food processor until thick and creamy.  Store in fridge for up to 3 days.  You can gently warm in a microwave before you apply to skin.
