2 Quick Body Shop Face Mask Reviews

Tuesday, 19 May 2020

If there's one thing I can't stop buying right now it's skincare. I mean, what else is there to do during lockdown other than pamper yourself? So here's two quick reviews on my newest face mask buys from The Body Shop

Let's start with the Nicaraguan Intense Coffee Awakening Mask

As a lover of Bean Body's coffee exfoliating face scrub, I thought this mask would be right up my street. But much to my surprise I'm not that keen.

The mask has a gel like consistency which warms on your skin. The smell is a gorgeous coffee scent and there's a good amount of exfoliating pieces that give you a nice scrub when washing it off. My skin did feel fresh and clean afterwards but I didn't get much glow. The reason I'm not keen on the mask though is that it left my face feeling quite sensitive to the touch. I did leave the mask on for longer than recommended so this could be my own doing, but overall I just don't feel like it agreed with me. 

The Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask however was a completely different experience...

I was drawn to this mask because of its pollution clearing claims. As someone who lives in a dirty city that really appealed to me and this mask did not disappoint. It's a creamy mask that felt great on my skin and the results left my face feeling calm, moisturised and like I'd just had a spa facial. Whenever I use this I can't help but touch my face afterwards. It's so soft to the touch and has a lovely glow. Of the two it's clear this mask is my favourite and I can see myself buying it again soon.

One thing I loved about both though is that they are available in mini sizes. The regular sized pots are £18 each which has always put me off because that's almost £20 wasted if you don't end up liking it. The mini pots are just £6 each and I reckon you can get up to 5 uses out of them, which is great for the price!

If you've tried any of The Body Shops face masks before let me know! I'll definitely be ordering more minis soon and could use some inspiration.

Until next time, J xx
