Every now and again, our skin needs a good old detox and recently I’ve been using The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask to do just that. Charcoal masks are all the rage at the mo (who hasn’t seen those cringe-worthy viral videos on Facebook of people peeling crap out their pores using a black, sticky mask?!) but The Body Shop’s version is so far from that. Inspired by Ayurvedic traditions, this 100% vegan tingling clay mask is infused with bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves and organic tea tree oil. It goes on as a mud, instead of a peeling mask, and feels refreshing rather than painful!
The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask is perfect for using once a week as part of a night-time pamper routine, when you want to let your skin breathe and help to eliminate any impurities building up on your face. I like to apply with a brush (more hygienic and less messy, and leave for no more than ten minutes before gently rinsing with warm water. It is beautifully cooling and on removal my skin feels squeaky clean.
If you are looking for a charcoal mask to beat the trends and last you for months to come, I would definitely recommend The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask. At £16 it is an affordable price to pay for an at-home facial treatment worthy of an organic salon; plus, it’s vegan and cruelty free status means it’s completely guilt free too. Meaning you really can sit back and relax with this on.
