Product review of the week - Superdrug Chocolate Orange Face Mask

13 March 2014

Hello my lovelies! As you will know from my Drugstore Haul on the weekend, I picked up a few items, and one of those items was the Superdrug chocolate self-heating mask. I picked this up because it was from the same range as my clay cucumber cooling mask, which I absolutely loved! This product caught my eye because I hadn't tried a self heating mask before and the fact that it was chocolate too!
I ripped open the packaging and was greeted by the gorgeous smell of chocolate orange (not too different from a Terry's chocolate orange!)It smelt so good, it took a lot of will power not to just eat it straight from the packet! It was a really rich dark brown colour and there was plenty to spare in the packet too by the time I had finished!

I tended to apply it by taking small amounts at a time on two fingers and gently massaging onto my skin. Within seconds my face was warmed by the chocolate and it was really soothing. Once I had managed to cover my face with the mask and had used up all the remaining excess in the packet too, it was time to relax for 10-15 minutes to let the mask do its magic!


Once my 15 minutes were up, it was time to wash my mask off, and that's when it got messy...literally. I ran a sink of warm water and grabbed a flannel, intending to simply wash it all off, but if only it were that simple. The chocolate basically just smeared on my face and it took me a good extra 10 minutes to try get all the chocolate and by the end of it, it was even in my hair! It also left messy little chocolate marks around my sink. Despite all this, my skin was left feeling very fresh, soft and hydrated.

Overall, I thought the mask in itself was lovely, but with the mess that came with it, I'm not really sure I'd be prepared to buy it again. I did managed to get every thing cleaned up but it took was too much time than I'd anticipated. Have you tried a similar face mask? What did you think? Let me know in the comments.

Overall rating:
