The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Mask Review-
Hello my lovelies!
I was eyeing this very hyped face mask from The Body Shop even before it was launched in India but then to my dismay, they launched it for 2495/- INR which was completely out of my budget even with their usual 20% discounts -_- Then, fast forward to a few months later when I came across this mask on their site & it was marked at a lower price than when launched :O :O I applied my discount code & bagged this baby for 1300/- INR !!! Read on to know if my patience was worth it ^_^

My take on The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Mask-
The masks of this range all come in very classy dark brown sturdy plastic tubs with a screw-on lid & plastic protector 🙂 The Himalayan Charcoal range has bright turquoise blue accents. Easy to use & carry.
The mask is medium creamy in consistency & is a dark greenish brown in color with scattered dark tea leaves in it. I found it was very easy to apply on freshly cleansed skin & it tingled gently as I kept it on for 10-15 minutes because of the menthol in it.
As it almost dried, I scrubbed it gently with warm water & rinsed it off. It did take quite a bit of time & effort to get removed completely from my face but it was so worth it!
I don’t remember the last time I had seen my face so radiant, squeaky clean, purged from toxins & impurities yet not dry/stretchy with most of the blackheads on my nose gone & the pores around my nose reduced. It was magic for my dry skin! I kept touching my skin it felt so soft & healthy <3 For very dry skin types though, the mask should be best used once a week & not more.
The mask managed to diminish my couple of budding pimples & has a fresh invigorating minty fragrance <3
Pros of The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Mask:
1> Convenient & user friendly packaging 🙂
