I'm so pleased to see that other MUAers have tried this cocoa mask.
After reading about all of the nutrients/antioxidants in cocoa powder, I bought some of the raw organic stuff from the bulk section of my health food store. I've done a few different masks with it. While I cant say it had a dramatic/miracle effect on my broken out, rough, scarred skin (what does?!), it did seem to smooth it a bit, and the yummy chocolate-y smell was quite aromatherapeutic.
The reason i'm giving it only 4 lippies is because i've only done the thing occasionally (I think 4 times so far), so i'm not sure whether it's really providing much of a benefit but it at least didnt *harm* my acne-prone skin, and it was a nice addition to my typical mud masks.
I've been using this with equal parts rhassoul (red) clay and molasses. All three ingredients have a lot of nutrients in them so i hope its doing some good. The combo seems to benefit my acne.
Recipe PlainJane's Vegan Acne/Combo Skin Mask

Cocoa powder (unsweetend no additives) is rich on anti oxidants,helps fight free radicals,increase hydration and improves blood flow to the skin.
You can just do a simple face mask of cocoa powder and enough milk(I prefer heavy cream ) to give you a paste like consistency.I spread this on until it dries or I feel like washing it off.My skin just feels soft,supple and hydrated.For the record I am prone to breakouts and oiliness and this does not break me out or clog my pores.
For an extra boost you can add honey,avocado and some ground oatmeal which will help exfoliate your skin and really get the benefits of the mask.
