I hope you are all enjoying summer…
So…! Face mask for today. But not just any face mask… The best cleansing face mask there is out there (in my opinion at least) !!!
Which is this mask ? The “Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask” (20€) from the Body Shop.
It is a 100% Vegan product, paraben-,paraffin-, silicone- and mineral oil-free and is made of natural, fair-trade ingredients such as Bamboo Charcoal from the Himalayan foothills, Community trade tea tree oil from Kenya and Green tea leaves from Japan.
The Bamboo Charcoal absorbs any toxins, excess oils and harmful substances from the skin, the Tea tree oil is famous for its antibacterial and antiseptic, acne fighting properties and the Green tea is known as a great antioxidant .
The texture of this extremely deep cleansing, exfoliating mask is muddy and this makes it really easy to apply, since it’s not runny at all! Its color is somewhere between brown and green and I have to say I really enjoy the smell!
I also have to mention the packaging … I really love the packaging! It comes in a beautiful box that you open to get a very luxe-looking glass jar!
So, I basically apply this to my skin and let it dry, for more less 10 minutes (if it’s not completely dry I leave it even a bit longer). The moment you put it on your skin the color is brownish green but it gets much lighter while you have it on. There is a bit of tingling but just for the first couple of minutes, and it’s not that bad (and I actually think this means that the mask is working). While drying, it makes the skin feel quite stiff. But then… When you wash it off (with warm water while massaging your face)… Wow!!! Your skin will feel cleaner than ever, it will glow and any imperfections will instantly be blurred. Your pores will clearly be minimised and you will feel refreshed and love your glowy, soft skin!

I can’t say enough good things about this mask… I’m obsessed with it !!! It’s absolutely amazing ! I recommend it to all of you (especially the ones with combination, acne-prone and unclear skin). It’s the best deep cleansing mask I have tried so far.
I would also like all of you to know that The Body Shop is making a big effort to finally end animal testing. By just going to their website and signing the Petition you can help to achieve this great goal! Otherwise you can go at one of their shops and sign the petition there, and as a small “thank you”, you will receive a little present! (A sticker and some samples)
Thanks so much for reading!!!
