My Favourite Body Shop Face Masks

If you know me you will already know how much I love the body shop mineral and ginger warming clay mask, seen as I have already done a blog post about it I’m not going into too much detail you can find the full review HERE. It’s brilliant, it really does cleanse my face thoroughly removing blackheads and whiteheads!

 

 

 

The next two masks I am going to talk about are literally both as good as each other however I like one A LITTLE more than the other!

The famous Himalayan charcoal purifying glow mask, 100% vegan, infused with bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves and organic tea tree oil. this mask draws out impurities and refines the appearance of pores to reveal a healthy looking natural glow to the skin.

The mask is grey in colour and dries within 10 minutes, I apply this using a  flat foundation brush it does the job! The mask feels pretty strong and intense when on I love the tingling feeling, it means it is working! YAY! It has an earth-y smell to it, which is another thing I LOVE!

Once it has dried I remove it using warm water and rub my hands around in circular motions concentrating on any area where I have blackheads and huge pores, the mask forms into a granule texture when I am washing it off which is then used to exfoliate my skin!

Once removed and dried my skin feels SO smooth, fresh and cleanIt’ss amaaziiing!!My pores disappear leaving my skin looking flawless and supple! I use this on days where I am giving my skin a massive detox or its the end of the day and I’ve removed my makeup and my skin feels oily and groggy? If thats even a word!

 

The ginseng and ice clarifying polishing mask; as much as I love the Himalayan mask this one is definitely MY FAVOURITE!!

This mask is inspired by the Chinese tradition of using ginseng extract, rice and sesame seed oil. This exfoliating mask is used to make your skin brighter, even and supple!

The mask is white in colour and is lightweight, and easy to spread, this mask can be used 2 or 3 times a week, I honestly would use this every other day it feels so nice when it’s on, it feels light and creamy!

I apply this the same as I apply the Himalayan mask, it smells nice and once it has been removed my skin looks amazing, bright and fresh, it feels so so soft, I can never stop touching my face after using this!

I use this mask in the morning to prep my skin ready for the day, it in the evening when I feel like having a little pamper!

Warming Clay Mask-Review

I love trying new face masks and finding new products to add to my skin care collection. Recently I came across the Warming Mineral & Ginger Mask, now this is the first time I have used a warming clay mask and I was excited I had seen reviews and everyone seems to love this stuff so I was eager to see how it works for me!

So what is this mask for?

Well in the description it does state it is for any type of skin however, I do feel like it might be harsh for sensitive skin? my skin reacts to certain acid toners and this has a slight tingling sensation so for those with sensitive skin, maybe find a sample of the product first?

The warming clay mask claims this product

“cleanse your skin, purify any pores/blackheads and absorb excess oil”

So I use this in my evening skin care routine, I only use it once or twice a week. I squeeze the product out onto my flat foundation brush (Yas! I use this for my masks because I don’t use it to apply foundation and it’s easier and cleaner than using my hands) and apply to wet skin. The product is white in colour and the consistency is quite thick and I found it a little hard to apply to my face but once it starts to warm up which is like 3 seconds later, it’s so much more easier to spread.

So once on it takes seconds before it starts working and my whole face felt a nice warm sensation with a little tingling and it’s not the harsh tingling it’s the nice one !! haha like it feels like its working. I was it off with warm water and I can feel and see instant results! My face looks brighter and feels SO soft and clean and clear it’s amazing I haven’t ever seen results like this after a mask it’s so good! my blackheads have reduced MASSIVELY they’re barely visible, my nose feels so smooth and clear that is where my blackheads were, also I had white heads which have seemed to be disappearing, all the small under the skin bumps have also gone!! Even after a whole 2 days later I could still see and feel the results! I love this product so much I have already purchased back ups!

As this is a clay mask and has strong properties it is recommended as a weekly treatment.

I purchased this on offer for £7, HERE  it’s retailed at £10 from The Body Shop. I was not paid to do this review I genuinely LOVE this product 🙂
