Multimasking with The Body Shop

September 28, 2016



The Body Shop have launched their new superfood masks. There was such a hype about these face masks across social media, that I was beyond thrilled to get to try them out. These masks are the Superfood face masks and come in five different blends to choose from.

  • Himalayan Charcoal purifying glow mask – helps detox skin.
  • British Rose Fresh Pumping mask – helps hydrate skin.
  • Ethiopian Honey Deep nourishing mask – nourishing for skin
  • Chinese Ginseng and rice clarifying polishing mask – brightens the skin.
  • Amazonian Acai energising radiance mask – energises skin

All retail at 25.00

They are packed, crushed and drizzled with natural ingredients. They are 100% vegan and vegetarian. As I always try to use the least amount of chemicals on my skin as possible, I was delighted to know these masks are formulated without parabens, silicone, paraffin or mineral oils!

Sleep, drink water and treat your skin

I received this beautiful package with two masks from the super food selection to try out. The Chinese Ginseng polishing and rice clarifying polishing mask and the Himalayan Charcoal purifying glow mask.

Chinese Ginseng & rice polishing mask is a beautiful white colour. On applying this the only way I could explain the scent is a fresh clean aroma. This is an intensive treatment to remove dullness and unevenness. There is a soft grittiness to the product which makes the process exfoliating on my skin while applying it. This mask did not dry up or harden. It was very pleasant to wash off with warm water. The scent alone made the experience very peaceful and zen like. I was left feeling very smooth and buffed afterwards. My skin felt very refreshed and illuminating.

Himalayan Charcoal glow mask is a dark in colour tingling mud mask. One of the key ingredients in this mask is the active exfoliate green tea leaves and potent tea tree oil, which gives it its zesty minty scent. It also contains powerful bamboo charcoal that purify the skin to give it a new lease of life. Unlike the polishing mask the Charcoal mask has a lumpy texture. The little lumps you will feel are little green tea leaves. As this mask is drying it really tightness and hardens your skin. You can feel every pulse, pulling out all the impurities from your skin. I loved washing off this mask as the leaves that are infused into the mask create an exfoliate effect. After washing it off I am left with very clean fresh skin that looks and feels detoxed!


It is not enough to just add one face mask anymore, it is all bout mulitmasking. Multimasking is where you would applying different masks to different areas of your skin in one go. I like applying The Himalayan charcoal mask to my T-zone – across my nose, my forehead, chin and across the apples of my cheeks. This mask will work at unclogging my pores and detoxing the areas where I have applied it. I then apply the polishing mask to the hallows of my cheeks and my jaw line. This will illuminate and revitalise my skin in these areas leaving it feel smooth and bright.

I loved using these luxurious masks and I am really looking forward to trying the other masks in their new superfood selection. They have lived up to all the hype and sur passed all my expectations. I would love to hear if anyone has tried these masks and what you thought of them ? Also if you have started multimasking too?
