[WondeRuci] Real Cacao Brightening Mask

I got this Real Cacao Brightening Mask during a Memebox sale, and this is the thickest wash off mask I’ve ever used yet. If you are a chocolate lover, you’d love the scent of this mask. It smells like a rich fudgey chocolate brownie

My thoughts:
It was difficult using this mask due to it’s consistency. It begins to melt a little once on the skin, making application a little easier. The mask heats up a little bit while on the skin, stimulating blood flow. This would help to tighten and firm up the skin. Washing off the mask is just as difficult without a facial cleansing sponge. Warm water is highly recommended. After removing this mask, my skin felt dry but firm. I did see a slight instant glow, but did not see an overall brightening effect.
Overall, I would give this Real Cacao Brightening Mask a 4/10. It was a fun novelty product. Fun to do with a group of friends because we all look ridiculous having chocolate fudge all over our face. But function and purpose wise, to keep in my routine for long term, I’ll pass.
