What can I say? L’Oreal is on a mission to get us all covered in masks! The latest masks I’ve seen (other than some L’Oreal Paris masks coming up in another post) is the collection from The Body Shop. I’ll say up front that if you choose Rose, Acai or Honey, you will feel like a freshly prepared scone. They’re rather jammy.
In the picture above, starting with the bottom pink looking mask: Amazonian Acai, Chinese Ginseng & Rice, British Rose, Ethiopian Honey and Himalayan Charcoal. I haven’t had a chance to try them yet, so I’ll give you some topline info – they’re not launching until mid August so I will have time to work through them. They’re all based on superfoods and all priced at £15.
Amazonian Acai: For radiance and skin energizing with guarana (full of caffeine), organic babassu oil and acai. Smells: Sharp and fruity.
Chinese Ginseng & Rice: For clarifying and polishing with ginseng, rice and sesame seed oil. Smells: earthy and sweet.
Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules
I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
British Rose: For plumping and hydrating with rose petals, rosehip oil and aloe vera. Smells: freshly cut roses.
Ethiopian Honey: For deeply nourishing and replenishing with honey, marula oil and olive oil. Smells: sweet and fresh.
Himalayan Charcoal: For purifying and glow making with bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves and tea tree oil. Smells: Like a cup of tea.
I’m really looking forward to trying all of these – there isn’t one here that I don’t fancy having a go at …. these have all had good results on user trials. I have to point out that the English Rose mask is a dead ringer for Fresh Rose Mask for a fraction of the price… I’ll do a half and half face and see what happens.
