Body Shop Face Mask Love
I've had problems with my skin since I was a younger teenager. The moment the hormones hit me was the moment my clear skin began to fade away. I've always tried to combat my problem skin with more natural remedies than clinical ones, which was what initially led me to try Body Shop products in the first place.
So let's assume I've been a fan of the brand for around 13 years now (ouch). Never have I been more excited about a product than the launch of the face masks which released a few months ago. To begin with, the packaging is beautiful, more like something you would expect to see in a super high end shop, costing upwards of £40, not in the Body Shop for just £15! Also, can we just talk about the sheer amount of product? 75ml of face mask goes a long way for me, so it's definitely a lot of bang for your buc
Normally, I'd go straight for the mask that helped get rid of spots, but I've found recently that my main skin concern has been how tired it's been looking. It isn't uncommon for people to tell me I look ill or tired. My skin is just that white. So when I spotted the Amazonian Acai Energising Radiance Mask I was sold. Basically anything that promises to wake my skin up is going to be a winner right now. The fact that it also exfoliates and is completely vegan? Bonus!
So why am I only now talking about it? I wanted to use it a good few times to make sure that I could honestly say that I loved it. No quick draw responses here. I like to use something a lot before I have an honest to goodness opinion. So that's what I've done!
I won't lie, it's probably the weirdest texture of face mask I've ever used. It was a tiny bit like putting jam on my face. But damn, did it work. I left it on for around 20 minutes, and dampened it slightly at the end to get some exfoliation action. Once I'd taken it off, my skin felt dewy, soft and very smooth. The combination of the soothing oils and exfoliation element left my skin looking a lot more radiant (and there have been no more sickly comments!)
All in all, I bloody love this mask. It's now on my once a week rota, and I'm still on the same pot! Value for money indeed. I'll definitely be trying the rest of the range soon.
Have you tried any of the other new Body Shop masks? Which should I go for next?
