Hi there! Hope you’re having a great week so far. I’m back with a review post on a pot of Korean face mask.
This is no ordinary mask… this mask smells, looks and feels like chocolate!! Oh yummy! I have tried couple of chocolate masks from the drugstores and I did enjoy them 🙂 full review here.

What is this?
WondeRuci Cacao Brightening Mask is one of those well known Korean facial masks. Possibly made famous for being part of an extremely popular Memeboxes. I didn’t get mine via Memebox but I did learn about it being a well loved product by many KBeauty enthusiasts.

Packaging: This jar of chocolate mask comes in a sophisticated frosted glass jar with a silver twist top lid. Very grown up, so you can imagine who are the targeted buyers for this!! The pink outer box has English instruction printed on it.

Product: This mask looks just like chocolate; it has the consistency of a jar of Nutella! This is probably slightly thicker and gluey, but smells more like chocolate than Nutella! It is very thick but not too hard to spread onto the face.

Formulation: We all know chocolate is great for our skin, it contains antioxidants, vitamin C and omega 6 fatty acids. This mask claims to moisturise, declogs pores and brighten your complexion.
The mask is not easy to rinse off, I did have to use the loofah pad to remove it, followed by a gentle facial gel cleanser to remove all traces of it.
Very sticky!

Scent/fragrance: Smells deliciously like real chocolate, there is no doubt about that and it lasts while it’s in your face too. Please try not to lick it. I haven’t tried but I can’t imagine it tasting like chocolate too.

Effectiveness: This mask only gets a Ok from me. Deal breaker… It is a brightening mask but I didn’t find it too effective. My skin had a slight reaction after use (red patches) which I’m very surprised about. I do not have sensitive skin and it doesn’t react to normal skincare products.

Price: 100ml for $30 USD from TesterKorea
Also available on and other major KBeauty online specialist sites

How to use:
1. Using a spatula to scoop out the rich and creamy mask
2. Apply directly onto your cleansed face,  avoiding the eye area
3. Relax and let the mask work on your skin for 15 to 20 minutes
4. Rinse cleanly with warm water and follow by your normal skincare routine

Overall Summary:
Not a product that I would recommend to everyone.
This is a disappointing product for me, as I had high hopes for it being a great mask. It probably does not suit my oily combination skin. Back to my English drugstore hot chocolate masks!


Thanks for reading and have a great day 😀

    Ooh a blast from the past!! I didn’t react to this mask (I got it from Memebox last year) as I am Oily and not particularly sensitive skinned (and that was lucky as I usually left it on way too long!!) but I also didn’t find that it did anything good in particular. I didn’t notice any brightening or hydrating but it was fun to use!

      Hiya Charlotte! Long time no speak! Hope you’re well.
      Yes I don’t find it particularly beneficial to my skin. I never expected my face to react to it :/ but at least I’ve tried 😛
