The Body Shop knows what it’s all about. They realise that the epitome of ‘me-time’ involves a facial mask or two. The blissful moments spent relaxing in a warm bath with your face slathered in a skin-boosting mask is unbeatable in any women’s busy life. The Body Shop recently sent over two of their new face masks for me to do just that – relax and relish their skin-benefiting natural ingredients. These superfood masks are 100% vegetarian, and three (out of the five in the range) are 100% vegan. They’re also all paraben-free, silicone-free and mineral-oil free.
The Body Shop British Rose Fresh Plumping Face Mask
“Stop and smell the roses”. Or, you can just stop, take a few minutes out of your day, and use this blissfully-scented plumping superfood mask from The Body Shop. The heady scent alone will charm you before you’ve even applied it. It smells like a stroll through a garden lined with roses bushes. Heaven. This 100% vegan plumping mask is refreshing with a gel-texture that smooths over your skin with ease. It’s infused with real rose petals, rosehip oil, rose essence and aloe vera. Need I say more? You can expect your skin to feel softer, beautifully hydrated and ‘glowy’. Dry skin is instantly quenched and the result is super smooth enviable skin. R300 at The Body Shop
The Body Shop Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask
If your main skin concerns are dullness and unevenness then you might be interested in trying out this mask. It combines creamy ingredients (such as shea butter) with exfoliating capabilities to help slough away dull skin and reveal a brighter skin tone. The addition of Ginseng, which is a marvellous medicinal herb packed with super-skin-powers, means your skin is toned and stimulated, resulting in brighter, revitalised skin. I’ve taken a break from all other facial masks and been focusing all my attention on these two superfood masks from The Body Shop and I’m loving the ramifications. This one being my favourite, I might add.
The scent is subtle and pleasant, the product is creamy and easily spreadable and removable. My skin feels silky soft and my hormonal, that time of the month, breakouts have even been diminished by the use of this mask. R300 at The Body Shop
