REVIEW: Anatomicals Chocolate Anti-Stress Face Mask

I had a particularly stressful day yesterday due to my mischievous *ahem* I mean.. adorable little toddler filling the hours with exploring and tantrums. I was ready to fall asleep there and then. But that’s their job, right?


Anyway, I happened to come across this face mask that my boyfriend had bought for me a few weeks ago. I can’t say I’m very familiar with the brand, but I love the packaging and, let’s face it, what better way to relieve stress than a whole load of chocolate-y goodness?! I think you really have to have a sense of humour to enjoy the packaging, but they’ve obviously put effort into it and it really pays off! It’s direct, funny, and simple.


It is supposed to leave your skin feeling “calm, relaxed and radiant”. Some of the main ingredients are shea butter and cocoa.

You can buy the face mask for £2.00 from Amazon, which is very reasonable. You can get two sessions out of one pack, but I personally just lathered my face up with the whole pack. i couldn’t resist! I began with clean skin, opened the packet and spread the yummy chocolate all over my face. It really does smell just like melted chocolate! Just don’t eat it- trust me, it does not taste as nice as it smells!

The consistency is quite thick, so it’s easy enough to apply. The directions are also clear- just leave for 10-15 minutes to dry, then apply a damp cloth and wipe off. It actually took a little longer for mine to dry, but I think that’s probably down to me smearing the pack on pretty thick.

Here’s a photo looking like I have fake tan on that’s ten shades two thick.. I wouldn’t suggest popping to the shop whilst wearing this one!


I didn’t have any problem taking the mask off, and I wasn’t left with any irritation. I can’t say my skin was left feeling baby soft, but there was definitely some improvement.


  • Affordable
  • Smells delicious
  • Funny packaging
  • Easily found on lots of websites
  • Doesn’t irritate skin
  • Thick consistency so doesn’t drip
  • Slight improvement in skin softness
  • Easily washed off


  • Does not give amazing results

Would I buy this product again? Probably not for myself, but definitely as a little present for somebody. It’s a perfect gift for someone who both loves chocolate and needs to chill out- like me!
