On lazy days where we just want to chill out yet have our dull, bare faces magically revitalised, we throw on a good mask, curl up in bed and wake to beautiful skin!
However, for most of us who have combination skin, we often find that these mask sheets turn parts of our faces oiler than we would have liked. (Yes, we are looking at you, T-zones!). Imagine being able to tend to the different skin needs you have on your face simultaneously, and there we have it- the glorious beauty of multi-masking – the layering of a few masks upon your face at the same time to simultaneously address various skin concerns! Last week, we discovered various benefits of five new masks from The Body Shop Expert Facial Masks series which will be launching on 25th of August!
The Body Shop At Home Facial Mask Experience features five beauty gems made with 100% vegetarian formula from around the world- Amazonian Acai Energising Radiance Mask, Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask, Chinese Ginseng and Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask, British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask, and the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask.
The Chinese Ginseng and Rice Mask and the Himalayan Charcoal Mask cleanse and exfoliate your skin, and are best suited to be left on the skin for no longer than 15 minutes before being washed off gently. Combining rice extract from China and skin softening Community Trade sesame seed oil from Nicaragua, this Chinese Ginseng and Rice Mask has the effect of evening out our troubling uneven skin tone! On the other hand, the Himalayan Charcoal Mud Mask combines natural bamboo charcoal from Himalayan foothills, active exfoliating Japanese green tea leaves and Community Trade organic tea tree oil from Kenya, leaving us looking fresh faced all over again!
With clean faces, we can move on to slap on some sweet, nourishing masks! They smelled as good as little jars of breakfast jam! The Amazonian Acai Mask contains superfood Acai berry, guarana and organic babassu oil from Brazil to bring our dull skin back from the dead! Ethiopian Honey Mask soothes our skin, keeping it soft and supple, while the British Rose Mask smoothens and hydrates dry skin, restoring moisture to it! The British Rose Mask surprised us all as it was not at all overpowering! The faint rose scent was lovely and we could already see ourselves falling asleep to this relaxing floral scent with this mask on!
We loved all the masks so much that at the end of it, it was impossible to pick out a favourite! With them, we can tailor our masks to suit our varying skin needs in a single mask session, within the comfort of our homes! Each pretty bottle of these masks will be retailing at $32.90! For members of The Body Shop, we can get them at a discount of $49.90 for two masks! We can’t wait to grab all of these babies back home!
