Wanted to let you know my thoughts on the Body Shop masks now that I have finally got round to trying them.
I received my free Body Shop sample mask trio through The Body Shop facebook page / Claim Free Face Mask offer – please see link here to apply (still available to claim or send to a friend(s) while stocks last) – see my earlier post here for further details.
I applied masks evenly as per instructions, avoiding the eye and lip areas and rinsed off after 10 minutes – states leave for 5 to 10 minutes on packet:
The Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask – full size £15 for 75 ml – states contains Bamboo charcoal from the Himalayan foothills, Green tea leaves from Japan and Community Trade organic tea tree oil from Kenya – light purifying type fragrance and when I first applied this mask I felt a slight cooling / tingling feeling but nothing major – did not irritate my skin and found is perfect for when you want that deep cleanse, my pores appeared diminished and it left my skin smooth and with a healthy glow – messier to apply and remove and has ‘bits’ in it however still love this mask and results although I found that this mask is definitely better for the T Zone area especially if you have combination skin as I personally found can leave other areas of your skin slightly dry – definitely will purchase when I use more of my masks up;
The British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask – full size £15 for 75 ml – states contains real rose petals, and essence of hand-picked roses from Britain, Rosehip oil from Chile and Community trade organic aloe vera from Mexico – this mask has a rose fragrance though not overpowering – left my skin smooth and soft to the touch hydrated with a dewy glow – could be used all over or just on chin cheeks -did not really notice any plumping results though – not sure about this mask for me though as prefer the other two – however would still recommend trying;
and last but not least
The Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask – full size £15 for 75 ml – states contains Community Trade honey from Ethiopia, Community Trade marula oil from Namibia and Community Trade organic olive oil from Italy – this mask is beautiful – this may be my favourite of the three masks I have tried, even though I like all three – light honey fragrance – left my skin hydrated, soothed replenished and fine lines appeared reduced and skin felt softer, looked brighter and more rested – definitely left my skin v nourished as well – definitely going to purchase.
I would definitely recommend trying to get samples of these masks to try before purchasing to see which one you prefer or maybe all three – if the offer I got is not available just ask the sales assistant if they have even one sample you could try. As always if you are considering purchasing please check in store and online for the best offers available prior to purchasing.
Look forward to any comments you may have – if you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot.
Thank you – take care.
