As a big lover of The Body Shop ®* and an equally big lover of good skincare, I’m always on the lookout for ways to help my skin be in tip top condition. When The Body Shop ® released new face masks in their range, I knew I had to give some of them a go. It was a hard decision to choose just one, but I settled on the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Face Mask.*
I’ve never used a charcoal face mask before, so was immediately drawn to this one straight away. This face mask is designed to revive and refine your skin, with the ingredient of charcoal straight from the Himalayas. Inspired by Ayurvedic traditions, this is a mask that is chock a block with green tea leaves, charcoal, and tea tree to really work in the skin and bring out all the nasty impurities. Did I also mention that this face mask is vegan? Hats off to The Body Shop ® for getting some vegan products into their line!
This face mask was £16, and is probably the most expensive face mask I’ve bought. However, the amount you get for the price definitely makes up for it. There’s 75ml of product which may not seem like a huge amount, but since this will be used weekly at the most it will go a long way. This face mask also smells absolutely delightful. I wasn’t expecting it to smell so good with the charcoal in it, but it has a gorgeous fresh smell that I was very happy to put on my face.
When I applied this mask on I instantly felt my face cooling and tingling while everything got to work. I felt refreshed and my skin was already getting the benefits the minute the face mask was on. I waited until it was completely dry and rinsed it out in the shower, leaving my skin soft, smooth, and looking like a million dollars (Or however many pounds it is in the UK!)
Overall, I’m very pleased with this face mask and how it worked for my skin. It definitely drew out a lot of impurities and left my skin fresh and energised. I will definitely be purchasing this product again, along with the other face masks in the range that I am very eager to try.
Have you tried the Himalayan Charcoal face mask?
