Muddy Waters Matcha Eye and Face Mask

Matcha Green Tea Beauty Mask

Tea and chocolate go together like ….. hmmm…. well, tea goes with nearly everything so it’s no wonder we’re seeing mar-tea-nis, tea lattes, tea and chocolate facial masks. 
When Basilur Tea introduced their products at the NASFT Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco in January, we were amazed at the number of tea vendors and more amazed at the quantity of chocolate vendors.  Nums.
Tea and chocolate facial masks?! Imagine the antioxidant skin restorative properties of those two together!  The first time I experienced a tea and chocolate mud mask was with Heidi and Gabriela at MuddyH2Oetc.  We added Matcha to their chocolate mud mask (you can do this at home) and they developed a Matcha Eye and Face Mask.  This is my favorite Matcha Mud Mask.

Michelle Phan, @RiceBunny, has a series of You Tube videos including “Create Kissable Cheeks with Chocolate“.  Would you ever use chocolate (and tea) as part of your daily beauty routine? Gina Souders poses the question at Herbal Gram.
