The Body Shop Facial Masks

The Body Shop Facial Masks

Oh how I love a good face mask! I so wish I could get in on that sheet mask trend, but almost every one I’ve tried has caused a bad reaction. Thankfully, the regular old face masks have never done me wrong. And it’s a good thing too because there’s just something so relaxing about sitting in a hot bubble bath, face covered in your favorite face mask, hot cup of tea in hand, and a few candles to set the mood. One might think I’m a very relaxed person. But I’m the opposite. I’m a mess. But I sure do know how to pamper myself! So when these beautiful new masks from The Body Shop landed on my doorstep, I just couldn’t wait to give them a try!

The Body Shop British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask

The Body Shop British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask

British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask $28.00 – 100% Vegan British Rose Fresh Pluming Mask is a refreshing gel-textured mask that nourishes and hydrates your skin.

This is the first mask I tried. I can’t resist rose scented things. And this mask smells just like roses! But it’s not an overwhelming scent. It has a gel-like texture, but wasn’t messy to apply. I left the mask on for 10 minutes and washed it off. It didn’t cause any irritation. It left my skin feeling smooth and even gave me a bit of a glow. I think it even helped with some of the redness on my cheeks a bit because after a few minutes when I went to check on my skin it was pretty evened out. My cheeks were a little pink, but definitely not red.

The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask

The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask

Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask $28.00 – 100% Vegan Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask is a beautifying mud-textured exfoliating mask.

This mask is a little messier to work with, but it’s not so bad. It has a thick mud-like texture. When I applied it I noticed a bit of a cooling sensation. It was nice and refreshing. I only left this mask on for 5 minutes because it dried down rather quickly. Washing it off is where it gets messy. It gently exfoliated my skin leaving it feeling incredibly smooth. After 2 uses I have noticed way fewer blackheads around my nose. Scent-wise, it smells really nice. It kind of reminds me of Noxzema.

The Body Shop Chinese Ginseng and Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask

The Body Shop Chinese Ginseng and Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask

Chinese Ginseng And Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask $28.00 – The Chinese Ginseng And Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask is a creamy, facial exfoliating mask that brightens and revitalizes skin.

This mask has a really nice airy/whipped texture. I left this one on for 10 minutes and it never felt super dry or tightening. It gently exfoliated my skin and left it feeling super soft and clean. My skin felt so refreshed after using this mask. Scent-wise it was similar to the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask, but lighter.

These are some really amazing masks! If I had to choose a favorite I’d have to go with the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask. The other 2 are just as awesome, but I feel that I got more from this mask. All of them gently exfoliated my skin without causing any irritation. The packaging is also really nice. They all come in glass jars which could probably be reused once they’re empty. I also like that they come in single-use packets ($2.50). I’ll probably buy a few when I indulge in some of their holiday goodies. They have a British Rose Deluxe Gift Set that has my name all over it!

Have you tried any of these masks? What’s your favorite mask?

The Body Shop Piñita Colada

One of my favorite mixed drinks is a piña colada. Back home I used to visit the supermarket bakery for piña colada muffins at least once a month. And when I moved to Jersey I used to visit this lovely little vegan bakery that made piña colada cupcakes! They were heavenly, but were only available for like a month or two out of the year. I’d send my husband to get me one every day they were available. Obviously I love me some pineapple and coconut! It’s a combination I just can’t pass up. In any form! Like this nifty duo from The Body Shop for example!

Piñita Colada Shower Gel
I love a good shower gel. I found this one to smell more like pineapple than pineapple and coconut combined. It’s definitely not a bad thing. It still smelled all kinds of tropical, but I would have loved to smell the two scents together. It lathered up real nice and was gentle on my sensitive skin.

Piñita Colada Body Butter
The body butter is definitely my favorite of the two. This one smells more like a piña colada, but it’s a lighter scent. Which for me is a good thing since I slather body butter/lotion all over myself. Because of that I prefer a scents like this which are pleasant without being overwhelming. I was actually surprised at how moisturizing this was. It absorbed quickly and left my skin feeling incredibly soft. It claims to be a 24 hour body moisturizer. While I didn’t time it, my skin still felt moisturized and soft after I woke up and throughout the day. And you can see from the photos how thick and creamy the texture is!

I might not be able to visit my old spots for piña colada treats anymore, but I can always sip a piña colada while wearing the Piñita Colada Body Butter. And if I close my eyes and try really hard I might be able to trick myself into believing that I’m laying on a tropical island somewhere far, far away from here. Maybe being fed grapes by The Rock. Because it’s my day dream after all!

So if you like piña coladas (I’m so not going to bust out in song, I promise) keep a look out for this refreshing collection!
