Naturopathica Chill Chocolate Vine Stress Mask Review

Not Sponsored: Every year, I pick a skincare brand I would like to try (to see how it will work for me). My skin is very complicated! I have dry, sensitive and reactive skin. I was perusing Neiman Marcus' website when I came across a skincare brand called Naturopathica. What attracted me to the brand, were their chocolate and marshmallow skincare products. Yummy, huh!?! As a foodie, this really excited me. It's hard not to like chocolate or marshmallows. So it would be nice to incorporate these delicious things into my skincare. I had already found an excellent chocolate mask, but low and behold it was discontinued. For some strange reason, chocolate beauty products don't stay around. I think its because they're more of a luxury than a necessity. But every now and then, we need little luxuries in our life.

As I read more about Naturopathica, I found out that they draw on holistic healing practices when creating skincare products and cater to individuals with sensitive skin. "Naturopathica was founded on the belief that herbalism, naturopathic medicine, and holistic wellness should be coupled with cutting edge science to offer deeper beauty to all." What else is really nice, is that the brand also uses safe and sustainable ingredients, green technology, they don't test on animals (Leaping Bunny Certified / Cruelty Free), and products are Made in the USA. You can read more about the brand and founder Barbara Close (Master’s degree in Therapeutic Herbalism and credentials in esthetics, advanced massage and aromatherapy) here. I was so impressed, I purchased deluxe sizes of most of the collection.

So today, let me start with Naturopathica's Chill Chocolate Vine Stress Mask. Let me ask you a question!?! Have you ever seen or heard of a chocolate vine (here and here)? I had never heard of it before. It's a shrub that is native to Japan, China, and Korea. Well, the flowers on the vine are chocolate scented. Upon reading that I wanted to plant one, but then I read it was an invasive plant. So that put a stop to that (HaHaHa). Well this mask smells like DELICIOUS CHOCOLATE (I could sniff it all day) and its consistency is a little lighter than chocolate pudding (see my Instagram video). Naturopathica describes it perfectly as having a "bouncy" consistency. This mask contains Fair Trade Cocoa Butter (nourishing and conditioning), Chocolate Vine (smoothing, lifting, moisturizing) and Niacinamide (lock in moisture & improve appearance of fine lines). Chocolate Vine is widely used in Korean Traditional Medicine to fight the visible signs of accelerated aging caused by stress. Naturopathica goes on to say [this mask], "recharges stressed-out and fatigued skin for a rejuvenated complexion, while its rich, chocolate aromatherapy helps promote relaxation and a sense of well-being." You apply the mask to clean skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse. 

What is my experience after using this mask? It's a wonderful sensory experience. From the time you open the lid to the jar to when you apply it to your face, your mood will change instantly. I guarantee a BIG SMILE. If you love chocolate, then this mask is for you. Depending on your budget, this could be a daily treat or a once to twice week treat (for me the latter). It feels cool on the skin. The mask doesn't dry out or crack on the skin. It easily washes off. Your skin will feel supple and I will say lightly moisturized (it's not overwhelming or heavy). It's a treat for your skin. This mask will work for all skin types. I experienced no adverse affects. Naturopathica offers this mask in two sizes. Give it a try.
