Hey there! So its been a while since ive done a review, and im sorry about that its what happens when things just get a bit busy! im really hoping to keep on top of things more now, cross your fingers.
Anyway, i wanted to talk about this mask duo i got at Christmas, because i have completely fallen in love with both of them! I got the body shop our finest facial mask duo £32.00 and was super pleased, having wanted to try the updated body shop face masks for a while.
In the duo you get the Himalayan charcoal purifying glow mask & the British rose fresh plumping mask. These type of masks are for sure my most used, a classic mud/charcoal one and a gel texture one. The face masks retail for £17.00 each so you dont save a massive amount buying them together but if you are gonna buy both anyway you might as well and it does also make a brilliant gift like how i got mine as its in a lovely box.
So lets start with the Himalayan charcoal purifying glow mask
Years ago, i tried the original glam glow mask and though it isnt worth the price tag (in my opinion) at all, it was still very good. Well, this mask gives it a run for its money for sure in my opinion. It is a classic mud mask, with the charcoal showing through in its colour, it also has the trait that glam glow is known for, it has bits of mud and such in it, so it isnt smooth in texture. Its easy to apply and you dont need a tonne to cover your face, and then you let it do its thing! it begins drying pretty fast, much faster than i expected it too, but while its drying you can really see it working! it also feels lovely and cooling on the skin, i do find though that the downside to this is it can be a bugger to get off! it is a real bitch to get off, its one that is best removed in the shower honestly, and you need a flannel for sure because it comes off in flakes and generally is a nightmare, but personally for me its worth it i really like it.
The British rose fresh plumping mask is another one right my ally, especially over the past year or so ive gotten very into using gel texture hydrating masks. And honestly one of my favourite things to do is to use a clay/charcoal mask then use a hydrating gel mask afterwards. And this is a really nice one, its not overpoweringly rose scented which is important because if it was too strong it would be annoying to use! but its not, its very gentle and cooling and hydrating. it also comes off very easily, which is always nice!
So yeah, all in all i really like this set of face masks, ill be sad when they run out and hope to pick up some more soon!
