The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask // Review + little questionnaire

Posted on Posted in Beauty

Hello everyone!

Today I am going to review the Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask. Quite a mouthful! I have been trying it for a few weeks now so I thought that I could share my opinion about it with you guys. Let’s go!

I was very excited when The Body Shop came out with his new line of masks. The mask is quite similar to the Glamglow variant, but that one is so expensive. I was dying to try that one out, but the price kept holding me back. This one is a lot more affordable and it does the job perfectly.

The mask has a very sleek and simple packaging. It contains bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves and organic tea tree oil. It is 100% vegan. It is supposed to give you a healthy glow, removes excess oils, help remove clogged pores, exfoliate and revive your skin.

The mask promises to give you an at home facial. You apply a thin layer to your skin and let it dry for 15 minutes. It gives a tingling feeling. The charcoal draws excess oils from the skin and pulls out blackheads. Afterwards, remove the mask gently with warm water whilst exfoliating your skin with the green tea leaves.

This is what the mask looks like. I know, it looks gross, but it is actually a mud mask, so it is supposed to look like that. You can see the green tea leaves in them.

You have to let the mask dry completely before taking it off. You can't move your face when it is dry, which isn't the best feeling in the world, but it is clay so that's what it is supposed to do. It draws all the oils, clogged pores, blackheads and other dirty stuff out of your face. I think it looks so cool, I can watch my face for minutes when I see it coming out. It deep cleanses your skin which is so soothing.

What it looks like when it is still wet. You can really feel the mask working on your skin. It actually does something in stead of just laying there.

When it is completely dry. You can't move your face now! Next step is to exfoliate using your fingertips and warm water. The green tea leaves really take away dead skin cells. Washing the mask away takes a while because there is always some residu left on your face.

But then the feeling afterwards… My skin feels so soft, like a baby’s bottom! I feel that my skin is cleansed, the pores are clean, oils are gone, and dead skin cells are wiped away. It feels so soothing and it gives my skin the healthy glow it needs. I am a big fan!

Quick and short

+ Draws out excess oils
+ Opens up clogged pores
+ Removes blackheads
+ Scrubs away dead skincells
+ Mask and scrub in one
+ Vegan
+ All natural, so no harm to our beloved planet!
+ A facial at home
+ Very affordable

– Takes a long time
– Very rough, definitely not for sensitive skin
– Can’t move your face when the mask is drying

Overall, I am so happy with this product. It works amazing and does wonders for my skin. I have an oily, acne prone skin so it is perfect for me. It feels super soft, my skin is healed from blemishes and all that kind of stuff. It would recommend it a lot, especially for people who suffer from blemishes, oils or flakey skin. People with sensitive skin should take a look first or test it out on a small area, because I guess it can be harsh on sensitive skin.

I would give this product a 9,5/10.

I would really like you guys to fill in this little questionnaire. I made it because I want to make my blog better and better, so I can really use your opinion! 7 questions, it takes 5 minutes of your time. It would help me a lot!
