The Body Shop Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask Review & Swatch-
Hello my lovelies!
As I wrote a few months back, the Himalayan Charcoal mask from the superfood mask range of TBS has gained its place permanently on my dresser & I was waiting desperately for the newer variants to launch in India. Only one has launched till now though, the Japanese Matcha Tea mask specially targeted towards dull skin to fight the harmful effects of daily pollution. I picked this up at the first sale opportunity I got & got it at 25% off 😀

My take on The Body Shop Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask-
The masks of this range all come in very classy dark brown sturdy plastic tubs with a screw-on lid & plastic protector 🙂 The Japanese Matcha mask has bright green accents. Easy to use & carry.
The mask is mint green in color with mild yet effective granules scattered throughout & is quite thin & creamy in texture- hence very easy to apply & rinse off. This one has menthol as well & my skin at once feels cool (in a very fresh & nice way) & soothed as I apply it all over avoiding my eye & mouth.
Even though they have mentioned to keep it on for 5-10 minutes, my skin feels so calmed & fresh that I go about doing my chores around the house till it almost gets absorbed by my skin (it does not dry up at all). When I start rinsing it off, the scrubbing granules come into play & my skin gets a very mild yet effective exfoliation & my skin is left glowing, fresh & soft without any stretchy feel <3
I feel this would be my perfect go-to summer mask for a quick pick-me-up, calming my sensitive skin without drying it out at all & the cooling feel lasts long after 🙂 It is a mask for all skin types actually which IMO is a great thing but I would recommend this more for normal-drier skin who fight signs of dryness in summers as well & want something to freshen up their skin without drinking up all the oils.
The mask has a faint, very pleasing, fresh green tea fragrance which lingers on skin for quite a bit 🙂
Pros of The Body Shop Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask:
1> Convenient & user friendly packaging 🙂
2> Easy to apply creamy smooth consistency.
3> After rinsing it off, skin felt smooth, soft & glowing without any stretchy feel <3
4> Skin is immediately calmed & soothed- does not irritate sensitive skin.
5> Very fresh,mild, green tea fragrance 🙂
6> Great as a summer mask for all skin types.
