Smells good enough to eat, and doesn't taste too bad either ;)
I have a really bad habit of tasting beauty products that smell delicious, mostly this is a stupid thing but occasionally, and this applies mostly to natural products, I hit on a winner that tastes almost or just as good as it smells. This is one that tastes almost as good as it smells, I wouldn't eat it but I wasn't traumatised by the small amount I licked off my finger.
Apparently this is quite common with this mask and I've heard multiple stories of whole pots being eaten by the unsuspecting partners of beauty addicts.
This mask not only smells great but it really does look like some sort of chocolate batter, the consistency is very thick and I occasionally had trouble smoothing it over my face so I would dampen my skin a little to help with moving the product easier.
I find a thin layer is best as it can crack and flake off as it dries but regardless of how much I use I'm left with soft skin that feels perfectly clean and refreshed (those peppermint and spearmint extracts are brilliant!).
Really enjoyed this mask and will not only repurchase but looking forward to trying some new masks that I haven't tried yet.

permanent fixture in my fridge
I usually save my lush pots to go and stock up on this face mask.
This is heaven this mask. Its nice and rich and thick to apply to your face and its amazing in summer when you get it out of the fridge. Its minty and chocolate at the same time which is cooling on the skin.
It dries up break outs and leaves my skin feeling soft and less bumpy
Store in the fridge
Use on nice hot days to refesh your face
Acne or break out prone skin

Was great on my legs
Honestly, I told my friend about Lush and she bought this. It was in the fridge for a few weeks and she hadn't used it. It was past the expiry date and she wasn't going to risk putting it on her face as was I but I thought I'd put it on my legs because it seemed like such a waste. It was like I had given my legs a facial! They felt silky smooth and felt amazing for weeks. For that reason I have given it a 5 star rating but yet again I wasn't the one who spent money on it.
If your Lush face masks are expired it might be worth trying it on other parts of your body.

I was so excited to try this mask, after all the hype I'd heard about it, but I was left extremely underwhelmed with it. Yes, it did smell good enough to eat, but as for actually helping my skin, I don't think it really made a difference. Will definitely try a different face mask next time.

Chocolate IS good for your skin after all
I got this purely for the whole choc / mint experience.It did not disappoint.Now,i,m not a young pimply teen...i,m over 40 and breakout rarely,but it happens.This mask soothes and cools when that happens,mattifies the skin and helps control breakouts.I wouldn,t use it on someone my age without the odd zit (as it is a little drying ),but for teens,guys and those who want a skin clean and a half...try it.The rhassoul mud cleans ,whilst cocoa butter nourishes.BE PREPARED FOR MESS THOUGH WHEN IT COMES OFF.

Not only does this smell great but my skin loves it! Well to be honest, I've used it once and the tender parts of my nose were a little scratchy but it's brought down the intense break out of pimples around my chin.
A lovely girl at the Lush store in Perth suggested this one to me and I'm so happy I bought it. I can see this doing my skin a world of good.

This mask is amazing for acne prone skin!! Soothes the redness and dries out a lot of the oillines. Your skin is left smooth, calmer and a whole lot softer!
Try this twice a week for great results!

this mask is very chocolaty and it actually leaves your skin felling fresh and moisturised in the right amounts. you can still smell the chocolate after you have washed the mask away but its a good thing if you actually like chocolate .
would i recommend it? - yes!
would i buy again? - you bet!

I bought this after reading the reviews on BH and I love it! I have oily skin which does break out quite often depending on the food I eat etc and this mask definitley calms my skin and makes my complexion glow a little. It also acts as an exfoliator when you rub it off which I loved!! Amazing smell!
