If you’re looking for a DIY face mask recipe to make your skin glow, this chocolate rose facial mask is it, my friend!
I thought this was perfect for Valentine’s Day–chocolate and roses–but it is simply heavenly year round.
You can definitely just craft it for yourself, but wouldn’t it be the most awesome gift for someone you love? It’s so cute and unique, and (since you made it by hand) super thoughtful too.
Cocoa is a great antioxidant, rose is soothing and toning.
Add in some milk for its exfoliating properties and pink kaolin clay for increasing skin circulation, and you have a mask that is incredible for all skin types.
This mask not only smells amazing but leaves your skin feeling amazing as well. And guys love it too!
You’ll be able to whip this up in no time. You can often get the clay (dry, powdered) and the rosewater at the health food store. Just make sure it’s not the synthetic stuff — that has no skin care benefits whatsoever.

RECIPE: Chocolate Rose Facial Mask
The trick to this mask is hydrating just enough for a single use, with rosewater, right before you use it. This way, you’ll always have a fresh product, get all the benefits of rose, and you don’t have to worry about preserving.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon powdered milk
4 tablespoons pink kaolin clay
In a small bowl, measure out the dry ingredients: cocoa powder, powdered milk, clay, and rose petals. Stir until they’re all completely mixed.
Put this dry mixture into a cute little jar or container. I love storing all of my dry mask base mixtures in these adorable glass jars with scoops, because they make using the mask convenient look lovely sitting on my bathroom shelf.
If you’re giving as a gift, you can also transfer the rosewater into a pretty jar for packaging purposes, and put both mask and rosewater in a little box or basket.
Mix 1 teaspoon dry mask base with 1/2 tsp. rosewater. Stir to get a smooth, creamy consistency (you can add a bit more rosewater if needed).
Apply to the face and neck. Let set 10 minutes. Work of with a damp washcloth. Rinse well with warm water.
Dry, this base will last 12 months. Once hydrated, use immediately.
