The first thing you’ll notice using this new, very-long-name mask from The Body Shop is how cool it feels on your skin. It’s a light and whippy formula boosted with oats (that feel bitty) and is specifically for calming sensitive skin. I don’t have sensitive skin so it’s very hard for me to say how it does with that, but as a general soothing mask, I found it beautiful and very moisturising. It’s billed as gently exfoliating – you need to leave it on for 5-10 minutes then massage it gently before rinsing off, and that’s when the oaty bits do their sloughing in the most kind-to-skin way.
The Body Shop Masks have exceeded expectation – all of them – and this one, if it proves right for your sensitivities, seem to join that club. My only gripe is that it doesn’t specifically say that it’s for sensitive skin – we’re not mind readers, Body Shop! It’s a stretch to imagine that those with sensitive skin will see ‘soothing’ and immediately make the connection. It’s not quite launched yet but you can read more about it HERE.
When it launches it will be £17.
