The new Himalayan face mask from The Body Shop – Birds on the Blog

The new Himalayan face mask from The Body Shop

Going for a facial can be a lovely indulgent treat but not necessarily something that can be done last minute or on a regular basis so having some luxurious products at home is a must. After a stressful day it can be very relaxing to run a bath, light some candles and apply a face mask and this week I did just that.

I am a huge fan of the Body Shop and always find their products to be such good value for money so I was excited to be asked to review new Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow mask.


This product claims to

” Refine and revive your skin with our Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask. Inspired by Ayurvedic traditions, this 100% vegan tingling clay mask is infused with bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves and organic tea tree oil. And it’s been formulated without parabens, paraffin, silicone or mineral oil. This invigorating charcoal face mask draws out impurities and refines the appearance of pores for healthy-looking skin with a glow that shows.”

I was impressed with this mask from the minute I applied it. Application was easy using The Body Shop facial brush and i loved how the thickness of the mask made it a non drip product. Within seconds of application you can feel it start to dry and slightly tingle on the skin, reassuring you that it is working whilst you sit back and relax. It has a strong but nice scent of tea tree that comes through as soon as you apply it and with your eyes closed and your body relaxed you could easily forget that you have applied an at home face mask and imagine you are in spa.


As easy as the application was the removal was equally as easy as it just wipes off with warm water  and leaves your skin feeling lovely and soft. A nourished feel that lasts for a couple of days after use.


To get your hands on one of these you can pop in to any Body shop store or shop on line
