The Body Shop recently released a new face mask and I wanted to take the time to tell you about it! As many of you, who follow my blog know, The Body Shop has been sending me their new offerings since July 2014, and all they ask is that I write a review on their site. They don’t ask me (or pay me!) to do anything else. I just wanted to make it clear, in case anyone was wondering whether or not I get paid for these reviews. I have done quite a few!
Let’s get to the meat then!
I’ve been testing this mask for over two weeks now, wearing it every other night. I think I’ve developed a pretty well-rounded opinion. First off, I gave this 5 stars online. I absolutely loved it and I really think it’s my absolute favourite product that I’ve tried that they’ve sent me so far, other than the Argan Oil body butter. I absolutely LOVE their Body Butters, they’re why I fell in love with The Body Shop products in the first place. Honourable mentions will also go to their Tea Tree line of products.
When I first received it, I liked the packaging but was curious about the texture.
Here are some pics for you:
It’s interesting and certainly lives up to its name. It IS bouncy! When I first started using it, I was what I would call generous and what others might call “heavy-handed” with my application. Soon enough I learned that you don’t really need that much at all to ensure maximum effectiveness. It smells nice, but it’s not overly pefume-y, which I enjoy. Scent is important when you’re going to be sleeping with it on. I usually apply it about 2-3 hours before bed time in order to let it sit on my skin, undisturbed before going to sleep. The mask stays on fairly well over night, even considering the fact that I’m a side-sleeper. It comes off easily when I wash my face in the morning and reveals gorgeous, fresh, ‘bouncy’ skin. My favorite part about this mask is how my skin looks and feel after using it. As many of you know, I am a student, this mask makes my skin look like it “woke up” at least two hours before me when I wash this mask off in the morning. It’s hard to describe, but I’d use the words “hydrated” and “refreshed” to tell you how my skin looks and feels after using this mask. Oh, and it’s not even a bit greasy! Really great buy if you’re in the market for a new hydrating mask.
