Body Shop’s new face mask review

Hi Guys,

Recently the Body Shop were kind enough to send me a sample of three of their new face masks. I was sent the; Ginseng & rice polish mask, British rose plumping mask, Himalayan charcoal purifying mask.

I thought that I would give you a little treat of an extra post this month and review these luxurious masks!


Each mask claims to do something slightly different to you skin;

Ginseng & rice polish mask

“Give your skin a new lease of life with our Chinese Ginseng and Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask. Inspired by Chinese traditions, we have blended ginseng extract, rice extract and sesame seed oil into our 100% vegetarian creamy exfoliating mask, that has been formulated without parabens, paraffin, silicone or mineral oil.

My Reviews

I tried the multi-tasking method so that I could try out all three face masks at once. 



I put the Clay mask on my forehead and down my nose to get rid of pores and blackheads followed by the rice mask on my chin and around my mouth to smooth and get rid of pores and then the British Rose mask on my cheeks to plump them.

I love all of the masks because they each promise something different and deliver. The clay mask definitely detoxed my forehead and nose of blackhead, the rose mask plumped my cheeks and the rice mask clarified and cleared up my chin.

The instructions were to apply all masks and wait 15 minutes for them to try, as you can see from the gif above the mask dried very quickly and the clay mask turned a pale green colour as it dried.

My skin is very sensitive so I was very cautious with these masks but they’re ever so gentle whilst still doing a brilliant job at really clearing out and plumping your skin.

These masks are all vegetarian, not tested on animals and affordable at £16
