The Body Shop Face Masks

by Sarah

The Body Shop recently extended their Spa Of The World range by launching a line of face masks and I’m feeling blissful just looking at them!

Some of you may remember I did a review post of my favorite body products from this line here, which I still enjoy on a daily basis. I trust The Body Shop products to deliver good quality ingredients coupled with great results so lets take a look at the new face masks:

One of the reasons why I love The Body Shop is because they don’t do things by halves. When they slap a name on their product, it’s not for attention grabbing purposes to make the product sound more appealing or “exotic”. If a Body Shop product has an ingredient or a particular region’s name on the label, you know that there’s a genuine connection to the claims. I think this range of masks is yet another example of The Body Shop’s dedication in bringing the highest quality products to their customers.

In line with The Body Shop’s ethical stance on all their products, these masks are 100% vegetarian; contain no parabens, silicone, mineral oils or paraffins. Furthermore, most of the ingredients are sourced from countries which are a part of their Community Trade program so it’s a win-win situation for all involved.

There are five masks within this collection to take care of all your skin needs or concerns. And of course with multi-masking being the latest skincare trend, you can mix and match your favorite blends.


Especially good for oily/combination skin, this mask not only has exfoliating properties but it also draws out excess oil and gunk to prevent breakouts. If your skin is in need of a deep cleanse, this mask has all the ingredients to provide the right balance.

Rice extract is one of the most popular brightening/clarifying ingredients in skincare products. Its effects are pretty much instant. I’ve been enjoying Tatcha Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder for a while now so I can vouch for rice derived ingredients providing softening and brightening results. This mask is designed to revitalize and brighten the skin with the added benefit of ginseng which is known for its energy boosting and glow-enhancing properties.

What it does:

Ginseng boosts energy; tones and stimulates the skin

Rice brightens, evens and revitalizes skin while removing dullness and unevenness.

Minimizes pores, reduces imperfections and smoothes the skin.



Another natural ingredient I swear by is honey. Honey is not only a natural anti bacterial for combatting breakouts, it’s also renowned for its softening and hydrating properties. Coupled with nourishing oils, this mask is perfect for those who need a boost of hydration.

If you want to try honey on its own, check out my detailed Honey For Skincare post.

Rose is known to soften and calm the skin so if you battle dry or sensitive skin, this mask will be your best friend. It actually contains real rose petals so you get the full benefit of the natural oils with the amazing scent.

Acai is not only a super food for the body but it’s also great for the skin. Containing plenty of antioxidants , this mask is perfect for re-energizing dull and tired skin. If you travel often or find that lack of sleep and fatigue take a toll, you need this mask.


Acai berries

What it does:

Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, acai helps to fight the appearance of fatigue and boost the immune system

So here we are beauties! These masks cater for all skin types and needs and contain natural and effective ingredients. And that’s a pretty good combination in my skincare-conscious opinion :)

The Body Shop masks retail at $28 for 3oz tub of product and are now available in stores and The Body Shop website.
