Anyone who knows me knows I’m not exactly an organic girl. I’ve never really taken the time to assess whether the term means much or expended the energy to worry that what I put in or on my body is hurting me. I’ve got enough stress, thanks. But anyone who knows me also knows that chocolate is my favourite invention and that for many years now, skin care has been my top priority.
So when I heard that there’s such a thing as a Chocolate Face Mask—and that it’s made with 100% all natural organic ingredients—I was all in. This is my face we’re talking about, after all, so why wouldn’t I treat it to the best?
That said, I was hesitant at first to smooth the brown sugary mixture onto my skin. I shouldn’t have been. In fact, I can’t wait to do it all over again and again and again. Wanna know why?
Why We Love the Inlight Skincare Organic Chocolate Face Mask
The Inlight line of 100% Organic Skincare takes only the finest, ethically sourced, natural, and organic ingredients and harnesses them at their most potent to create a gourmet, artisan, sublimely luxurious diet for your skin. At least that’s what it promises, and I have to admit, I’m a believer. At first I didn’t know exactly what was in the mask, but I didn’t really care. Why? Because I could tell it was all natural by how it smells and feels.
The mask comes in a little black jar that gives you 1.6 ounces of an exquisite, good enough to eat concoction that literally feeds your skin. It feels like a wet semi-solid wax with sandy bits that cling to your skin on contact and start working its magic.
Right away, you’ll get a sensory, euphoric feeling as the calming oils absorb. At once intensely nourishing and uplifting, the mixture of products are a real treat. Among other organic ingredients, there’s cacao for sensual luxury, argon oil that nourishes, refines and detox pores, rose to restore and balance skin, and baobab, the 21st century superfood that gently exfoliates and delivers a burst of antioxidant protection.
I applied a thin, even layer over my face. Because the product is oil-based (but not greasy), it has the feel of beeswax and I didn’t need to use much. Then I lay down and relaxed for 10-20 minutes.
The directions say to remove the mask with a damp beauty glove, but since I don’t have one and the product felt like second skin, I used some gentle cleanser. The results were astonishing. My skin was clean, velvety soft and radiant. Plus, I smelled faintly of sweet chocolate. Decadent is all I can say. More, please, more, more, more.
