The yummiest chocolate face mask

You have probably seen those little sachets with the chocolate mask mix in the beauty shops, some brands cost a small fortune and you cannot be sure there are none of the nasties inside. It is very easy to make your own chocolate-based face mask which will moisturize and nourish your skin.

Chocolate face mask
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp plain Greek style yogurt
1 tsp oats
Mix all the ingredients together to a thick paste and apply to your face for about 10 minutes. Rinse with the tepid water.

Now the scary part alert: me with a chocolate mask on. Eddie saw me and slowly tiptoed away, just in case, and asked his father: "What happened to Mama?" I had to show him a little bowl and reassured him that I would soon be back to normal.
Confession time: some mix ended up eaten, it tastes so good.

After I rinsed the mask off, my skin feels refreshed and moisturized (and if I say, it feels soft like a newborn's bum, I would mean it as a compliment, lol)
Eddie sighed with relief and uttered "Mama's all nice and clean". Yes, darling.

This post was inspired by my friend Cheryl from Madhouse Family Reviews and her latest post on 30 ways to save money.
