The Body Shop Face Masks

Hello Beauties!

So I just posted about The Body Shop Seaweed range but today I thought I would round of my skincare posts with a mini review of each of these face masks I've recently picked up! I've had a good trail run of each of these so I feel its an appropriate time to give my opinion. 

Vitamin E Skin-In Moisture Mask - Before buying this one I had never tried a moisture mask, the first thing I noticed is the smell which I really like it makes me feel super relaxed! the texture however is really similar to a thick moisturiser. I smoothed this one concentrating on any dry areas, then left it for a good 10-15 minutes. Once washed off and my face dried my skin felt really smooth but not as smooth as I would have liked to have been later on in the night I moisturised again which I didn't think I'd have to do, but for a quick fix I really enjoyed it!

Seaweed Iconic Clay Mask - This is my favourite of the three, I apply this once every two weeks now as previously I applied it once week and found it was a pretty drying on the skin. I smooth a medium to thick amount on my whole face focusing on my nose/cheeks and jaw line, I then leave it on till it dries which isn't the best feeling, very tight but what I do notice is this sinks into my pores like nothing i've ever seen before. When I rinse it of my skin feels so so smooth and really refreshed although a healthy dose of moisturiser is needed!

Tea Tree Face Mask - This is my second favourite, it smells of Tea Tree (unsurprisingly!) which I really that that 'clean' smell. I put a thin layer of this from the top of my cheeks to my chin, it dries like the Seaweed mask but it's not tight like that one it's pretty comfortable I left this on for 15 minutes although it could of done with a few minutes longer I think. I had a few acne spots around my chin area and I kid you not, it pulled all the impurities out of them so they we sitting above the mask, Pretty gross I know but I though it was amazing! apart from that when I washed it all off my skin felt soft but not as soft as with the seaweed mask. 

All in all I've got to say these masks are amazing! They really do what they say they do, which I think is the best thing about them often people buy other masks that claim to do extraordinary things yet they sit on the skin and do little more then the everyday moisturiser. For £2 a pop I actually get 2-3 uses out of each one, so they are completely worth the money. I couldn't find them all on the online website but I know both sachets and full sizes are available in stores!

What's your favourite face mask?


  1. Oooh I've not tried Body Shop masks before! Might have to give them a shot - it's great that they come in sachets so you can try them out. Great post! N x

  2. I use a lot of My Beauty Diary sheet masks and the Queen Helene Mint Julep mask which is a mudmask like the Seaweed one. I've been meaning to try the Body Shop mask!

  3. I didn't know The Body Shop sold their masks in sachets, I'll be picking myself up some of those! I love the deep seaweed mask they do, and also the Sanctuary 5 minute thermal detox mask! x
