It’s a Review Post!! Yayyy!!
Hello, Munchkins! I hope you are all doing well.
I’m back after a very long break from blogging. If you are new here, welcome to her blog Life. My name is Nadra, and I’m a beauty blogger. Follow me on Instagram – her.bloglife , so you can catch a glimpse of what’s coming up on my blog.
I have been meaning to do this post for long, but I could not do it straight away until I’ve tested this product properly and I can say that I’m glad that I’m FINALLY doing this now!
I never considered myself as being a skincare junkie but as of recently, I can positively say I am! I started my journey of a proper skincare routine for about almost a year now. I was on a low budget and wasn’t a big spender! However, I’ve always been using homemade and drugstore products on and off, and it was only after recently that I decided to switch things up and beef up my skincare products.
So, I decided to try The Body Shop products. I love their beauty products mainly because they are cruelty-free and vegan, and also all their products do not contain any animal ingredients.
The product that I’m going to review today is The Body Shop tea tree skin clearing clay mask. The anti-acne and blemish mask!
The mask claim to:
· Cool and deeply cleanse your skin with our tea tree infused clay mask.
· Perfect for blemished complexions.
· The instantly cooling sensation refreshes skin, without over-drying.
·This mask will help to clear impurities while absorbing excess sebum.
·Skin feels smoother and clearer.
As a matter of fact, I have oily to combination skin and as a bonus point, my skin tends to be acne-prone! You can without any doubt imagine the nightmare! Especially with those badass acne scars and blemishes on my face.
Like most of the clay masks, it claims to clean out your pores and tighten up your skin, which is always a plus point! However, this mask contains menthol to cool down your skin which is great if your skin is feeling particularly red and inflamed and tea tree is known to heal blemishes.
I usually apply this mask on my entire face, or only on my T-zone (forehead, nose & chin) and sometimes on my ugly spots only. I use it twice a week (maximum if I want to get rid of those acne or blemishes the soonest), but usually, my skincare ritual is on Saturday nights when I really need it or when I have the spare time.
This mask feels so cooling when applied on, however, you can feel a slight burning sensation when first applied that’s only because of the menthol found in it, and also it smells incredibly nice from the tea tree oil! It can definitely feel a bit tightening when you first put it on, but as it dries up, it feels quite good. Once applied, you’ll certainly look like Shrek due to its greenish color! But most importantly your skin will be more soothing than anything else. After the application of the mask, your skin will always feel very smooth and clear and your pores look quite good.
This mask is definitely best for helping and healing acne and preventing breakouts. It doesn’t do much for older breakouts (like those awful bumps that are in the process of healing), but it does help soothe that wrecked feeling skin. If you have inflammation, it can be helpful with that too; I always see a reduced amount of breakouts or pimples in the days after I use this mask and I use it frequently to get rid of them nasty little bumps on me face!
If you are looking for a more high-quality mask, then this one is a great middle price option! We do not have any shops here in Mauritius, unfortunately! But if you are traveling abroad (Europe, South Africa, India, etc.) or have someone going abroad—you can definitely include this in your gift list. Ha-ha! However, we do have some great Mauritian makeup re-sellers, from whom you can order this out. Such as this adorable lady Nabila (Ig acc @nab_makeup_reseller). You can check her IG account. She will help you with your Body Shop orders and as well as other skincare brands and makeup 🙂
If you are a person who is struggling with breakouts, hormonal breakouts or you are about to get into your lady’s week and if you have inflamed skin. This mask is a great one to keep in your array for skincare! Trust me, once you use it, you will always include it in your skincare routine.
After using this mask, you’ll be like…Excuse me! Breakout who?? *wink* *wink*
And that’s it, guys! I hope you like this post and that you will soon include this incredible mask in your skincare routine. If you liked this blog post– comments down below. Or if you have more questions, you can also DM me on IG, I’ll be more than happy to help you out!
