Chocolate Beauty

We made a Chocolate Facial Mask for a chocolate-themed girls night a while back. I don't have any pictures of it but it was fun and finger-lickin' good. :) We gave a sample of the mask to everyone to take home and try. It truly makes your skin baby soft. We also made Chocolate Lip Gloss to give away to everyone. We put the chocolate mask samples in a plastic baggie so all they had to do was snip off the end and squeeze it out. You can buy lip gloss containers in various shapes and sizes on the internet, just google it and compare prices.

Chocolate Facial Mask
1/3 cup cocoa
3 Tbsp heavy cream
1/4 cup honey
3 tsp oatmeal powder

To get oatmeal powder, just pulverize it in the blender. Mix all ingredients together and smooth onto face. Relax for 10 minutes, then wash off with warm water.

Chocolate Lip Gloss
2 tsp Vaseline
1/8 tsp honey
5 chocolate chips (milk chocolate for light color, semisweet for dark color
1/8 tsp shortening

Mix all ingredients in a microwaveable container. Microwave, uncovered on high power for 20 seconds. Stir. Repeat until chips are fully melted. Pour into a small jar and freeze 15 minutes or until solid. Then apply it to your lips. Makes about 1 Tbsp of gloss.
*I remember adding a little beeswax (craft stores) to the mixture to firm it more.

That's a really fun idea. I'll have to try that with my girls.
Do you mind if I use some of your crafty ideas from this blog for our Super Staurday?
