The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask Review

 I love a face mask, they're a great way to target specific skin concerns and pamper yourself a little. Today I'm going to be reviewing the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask from The Body Shop which I'm really excited about because I'd heard great things about it. This mask costs £17 which is somewhere between budget and high-end but you can usually find some kind of deal or offer at The Body Shop to bring down the cost. This mask is dermatologically tested, 100% vegan and claims to purify the skin to reveal a healthy, youthful glow......sounds amazing right? Well, let's see if it's as good as it sounds.

The first thing I need to talk about is the packaging, I love it, it looks and feels very luxe. It comes in a nice weighty dark glass jar and looks super pretty sitting on a bathroom shelf. The mask is filled with bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves and organic tea tree oil, you can definitely smell the tea tree oil so if this is an ingredient you're sensitive to then this might not be the best product for you but I'm a big fan of tea tree for helping to combat breakouts. It also has a cooling tingly sensation which I love because it makes me feel like the mask is really doing something for the skin. It's easy to apply but can be a little messy thanks to the little pieces of green tea leaves, it has a slightly gritty texture which really helps to exfoliate the skin especially if you add a little water and really massage the skin right before you wash the mask off. 

After rinsing my skin feels soft, smooth and refreshed, it can be a teeny bit tight feeling so I'll always go in afterwards with a moisturiser but this is pretty typical for any charcoal mask as they absorb any excess oil and dirt. I absolutely love how it makes my skin look and feel, I also suffer from mild adult acne and this mask helps me maintain clearer looking skin, my boyfriend who has quite sensitive skin is aways pinching it and he's also a big fan so I'll definitely be repurchasing this again in the future. Highly recommend!
