I love trying out different masks and I wanted to share one of my favorites with you. The Perricone MD Cocoa Moisture Mask is a product I always recommend to friends and family. Every time Perricone MD has a sale, I stock up because the Cocoa Moisture Mask is a product I can’t be without. I’m so completely in love with it and the noticeable results I see and feel after I use it.
If you’ve tried skin care from Perricone MD, you probably know they have a gorgeous collection of products for many different skin types and needs. Their site is organized so you can shop by product, collection, or skin concern. They also have a skin quiz that will help direct you to the product line suited for your needs. I’ve used skin care products in the Cold Plasma series since it was launched. I’ve noticed this brand is always getting top ratings from consumers and that’s what prompted me to explore them further. I think their top ratings are well deserved. I decided to try the Cocoa Moisture Face Mask last year, and I was instantly in love with yet another Perricone MD product. Be warned, this is an addicting line of skin care!
The moment I open Cocoa Moisture Mask jar, the smell of chocolate is positively delicious. It reminds me of the Too Faced Chocolate palettes only it’s more intense and decadent. The product is an off white creamy thick texture but it feels silky and smooth as it’s applied to the skin. As you rub the mask on your skin, it transforms to a milk chocolate color. As you wear it longer (recommended time 10 minutes), it continues to darken and some of the product is absorbed by the skin. The scent lingers until you rinse the mask off.
After I use this mask, my skin feels extra soft and I love that it doesn’t leave my skin red. I always watch people demonstrating face masks and they remove the product to reveal their new glow, yet their skin is pink or red because of the product. Not with this mask! After I rinse the mask off, my skin is completely even-toned.
The Cocoa Moisture Mask is formulated to provide an intense boost of hydration and that is exactly what it does. I use this mask any time I want extra moisture. It instantly leaves my skin feeling moisturized, soft, and looking radiant. Perricone MD says the mask leaves skin feeling firmer but this isn’t something I have noticed with using it.
The all star ingredient from Perricone MD in this mask is DMAE which helps to tighten skin and reduce sagging. It is also said to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and brighten skin. However, I believe these effects occur over time and not with a 10 minute application of the product. I usually rely on information published in the United States National Library of Medicine. It states there, benefits of DMAE were observed during clinical trials that lasted 16 weeks. Research in dermatology also states DMAE has a potential anti-inflammatory effect and a documented increase in skin firmness with possible improvement in underlying facial muscle tone. DMAE is a great ingredient to look for in skin care that you use regularly. Many products from Perricone MD have DMAE in the formula.
This is a luxurious skin mask that feels like something you’d experience with a spa treatment. Periodically, Perricone MD runs specials on their website and I always watch for them and stock up on this mask. It’s definitely one of my favorites!
The Cocoa Moisture Face Mask is available at Ulta, Sephora and PerriconeMD.com. It retails for $69 / 2 oz – 59 ml.
