If you like to keep up to date with my blog you’ll know that I really love The Body Shop, in fact – I love the body shop’s face masks over all of the other high street ones. I’ve previously shared my review on the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask which instantly became one of my all time favourite masks, still using it to this day. So when The Body Shop very kindly sent me another package full of goodies including another one of their amazing face masks, I knew I would have to share my experience with you.

I received the Matcha Tea, pollution clearing face mask which is enriched with matcha green tea from Japan, also dandelion extract and “soul soothing” community trade aloe vera. It is 100% vegan and deeply purifies, gently exfoliates and “liberates” your skin from the weekly build up of city pollution and everyday impurities. Pollution apparently causes dryness, inflammation, pigmentation and premature skin ageing.
At £16.00 for the mask it may not come in cheap for some, like I always say though: skincare should come at no price budget especially if the product DOES work. Using this 2-3 times a week for around a month would work out at less than £2.00 per usage which I think works out really well.

The Body Shop advise you to remove makeup and cleanse the skin as normal before using this mask. Apply the product with your fingers or the brush mentioned below avoiding your eyes and lips. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and then rinse off using circular motions to gently exfoliate the skin.
You can carry on using this 2 – 3 times a week for the most effective results.
Before we get started, I do have oily skin but every so often suffer from combination skin where my face gets quite dry in patches. My initial first impressions was that this mask is so much creamier and easier to apply to the skin than the Himalayan mask. I decided to apply it with the brush and it glided over my skin so smoothly. It felt extremely light on my face and it barely even felt like I had a mask sat on my skin, top points body shop!
You can purchase the Matcha Facial Mask mentioned in this post for £16.00 HERE, Facial Mask Brush HERE or in any of your local TBS stores.
