The Body Shop Face Masks Have Me Hooked

I’m VERY picky about my skincare which means that if I’m recommending something it must be amazing. The Body Shop face masks are my new obsession. I was given one to test out and I now have four more lying in my skincare cabinet (I bought the last two after taking these pictures because I was obsessed again!). They’re that good! Let me tell you why.

The Range

Firstly, they’re described as an at-home facial experience. When I apply these masks, my face literally feels like new skin which is typically the feeling you might experience when going to a facial. There are seven face masks in all; all having different properties that are ideally used for different situations. The ones I own are the Japanese Matcha Tea, the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Clay Mask, the Amazonian Acai Energising Radiance Mask and the British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask. There are two others in the collection including the Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask and the Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask.

The Benefits

As you probably can tell, the face masks are used for different reasons. My favourite one, by far, is the charcoal mask. I tend to reach for this after a sweaty workout at the gym. It aims to purify your skin and leaves your face feeling so soft – just like new skin.  You can visibly see your pores reducing just by a single application. The Japanese Matcha Tea mask is especially useful in Malta as it’s a pollution clearing mask. You know those days when your face feels dirty A.F? That’s when I like to use this to clear my skin and make it look fresh and healthy.

The Amazonian Acai mask is perfect to use after a long ass day. It’s meant to reduce signs of fatigue and stress. The British Rose mask is amazing for moisture. When my skin is feeling dry and in need of a fresh start, this is the mask I turn to for help.

I’m honestly looking forward to completing the set. The Ethiopian Honey mask is said to regenerate your skin and we all know that honey is an amazing skin care ingredient. The Chinese Ginseng & Rice mask is said to clear up your skin and polish it in the best way possible. I have a few products from this range that I’m currently testing. I’m not particularly crazy about the smell of this line of products but I’m impressed with the benefits that they’re leaving on my skin. (But more about these in a future post!) 


My only complaint is that I wish The Body Shop face masks were introduced sooner into my life! I cannot imagine how I used to live without them. They’re currently my most reached for products.


Have you tried any of these The Body Shop face masks yet? I’m curious to know which one’s your favourite!

  1. My first mask from them was the “Tea Tree Skin Clearing Clay” Mask and just like you, I was impressed by the results too! My face feels so clean and so fresh like it’s been rejuvenated. It helps to clear impurities and absorb excess sebum, leaving your face so clear. While this isn’t a mask from this collection, I strongly recommend it! I usually apply this mask after a long day when my face feels clogged up from all the dirt, or when I start experiencing a lot of breakouts as it helps to minimise them!

    Thank you for this article as I was looking for new masks to try from the Body Shop!

  2. I LOVE the Himalayan Charcoal! I have combination skin and it really helped to balance my skin and clear out imperfections. Thanks for sharing!

    1. You’re welcome, Joanne! That’s my favourite mask too! My face feels like it’s got new skin on after I use it. So good!
