      Rated 3 out of 5 by from It really does purify and give a glow but... First of all, it has a really nice scent. I found it a little tricky to apply due to the little chunks of charcoal in it. For me, it was much more of a stinging rather than tingling sensation whilst the mask was still wet and drying but once dry, it was fine. My skin was visibly clearer though, blackheads had vanished on my nose and chin, skin had a really nice glow to it and my face felt velvety soft. Little rough bumps around my face disappeared as the dead skin was removed. Washed off easily. Not a bad product, desired results are achieved although the stinging is the only thing that would turn me off

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mask I've ever used! I've used face masks before with little to no effect. This one genuinely surprised me. Not only did my skin feel amazing after using it, it actually cleared out some persistent block pores/blackheads on and around my nose. My only issue with the product is that the "tingling" sensation, which I assume is from the peppermint oil, is a little more like mild stinging. No actual pain, just a rather intense sensation. The packaging is great too, I love that it comes in a glass jar too (potentially reusable as well as recyclable). Personally it's a little expensive, but it's a great high quality product so I can forgive that!

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this face mask! I love a good charcoal face mask and this has become one of my favourites! I was really unsure about it at first by the texture, which is quite thick and clumpy. But once I applied it to my face I was immediately a fan. It is thick, so you only need a small amount to cover your whole face. If you leave it for 10 to 15 minutes it will set and you can start to see it getting deep into your pores, particularly on my nose (well I certainly noticed it getting deep into my pores around my nose....) I found I needed a lot of water and a little bit of cleanser to completely remove this face mask, however the slightly clumpy texture meant that it gave a gentle exfoliation as you remove it (bonus!)

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice treatment I received a sample of this and was excited by the inclusion of charcoal and kaolin in a mask! The smell is gorgeous, the texture divine, and the feel of it was satisfying to pore clogged skin :) It did tingle a little as it dried and for a while afterwards but I experienced no redness or irritation on the surface of my skin! Afterwards my skin felt clean, fresh, and less congested. I adore this mask and will purchase some as soon as it becomes available. Some great oily & blemished skin fighting ingredients in one mask!

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for sensitive skin I received a sample of this along with samples of the British Rose and Ethiopian Honey masks, and this was undoubtedly the mask that I was the most excited to try. However, this mask was not the right one for my skin type. The mask is quite thick and smells minty, which I enjoyed, but I found that as soon as I applied it to my face it began to tingle. I left it on for the 5 minutes as recommended, during which time the mask became rock hard and it was impossible for me to move my face. After removing, my face was quite red for a few minutes, though it did feel extremely clean and I noticed a few under-the-skin pimples came to a head the next day. While I likely wouldn't use the mask again, I would recommend it for anyone who has stubborn pimples, likes drying masks and has combination or oily skin.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does Purify! I got sent this to trial as it was part of the new collection of body shop! I love the smell - it's refreshing and very fresh like a tea tree/mint smell. It is easy to apply, but is a bit thick due to the charcoal particles within the mask. It sets very quickly, only needed 5 minutes and noted the difference. It would not be suitable for SENSITIVE skin. But i would recommend this especially for oily or combination skin as it does help with oil production and reducing pores. It definitely after washing off the mask did make my face look purified and have a natural glow, like a fresh look! I would buy this but only use this once weekly. It is definitely better than the seaweed pore reducing mask they used to have but is now not available. Post using this, definitely need a serum/toner as well as a thin layer of hydrating moisturizer or overnight mask to lock in the dried out pores.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mask I got a sample of this mask and I love it. The smell was fantastic. After using it my skin felt and looked great which is saying a lot since I was having a PMS skin day. The only issue I had was the pieces in the mask were a little big and it got a bit messy during the application and drying, but given the results I'm willing to put up with the mess. I will be buying the full size when it is released!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I received a sample of this mask, along with a couple of the other new masks, but this one was amazing! The fresh minty smell instantly makes you feel clean. The charcoal pieces in the mask are great to rub into any problem areas you may have. I'm no spring chicken, but I felt this mask doing my skin some good as soon as I applied it. It reminded me of the older masks, it tightened straight away, which I like about a mask. I like to apply a mask when relaxing in a bath, so this was perfect. When I removed the mask, my skin was still feeling tight, it felt so good. I then applied my normal skin regime after, but even the next morning I could still see my face was clean and glowing. This stayed for a few days, which I loved. I attended a family gathering a few days later and I had comments on what I was using on my skin, which made me feel even better! I love this mask! It has the quality of a high end product you would purchase from a beautician or spa.

    • How to use?Show

      To ensure the most hygienic application, scoop the mask from the pot using a spatula, and then use the brush to apply the product to the face. Ensure you clean the brush after each use with warm water and Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash. Remove make-up and cleanse the skin. Smooth an even layer of the mask onto the face avoiding eye and lip area, using The Body Shop Facial Mask Brush. Apply to neck and décolleté if desired. Leave for 5-10 minutes before rinsing off with warm water and a muslin cloth in circular motions to gently exfoliate. Use 2 to 3 times a week, every week.

      The long tapered bristles of our NEW Facial Mask Brush ensure an even application over the whole face, and the slanted tip allows application in all the corners and niches of the face. The handle is made from FSC elm wood from Russia, and the bristles in our brush are 100% synthetic. This means the brush is cruelty free. Applying a face mask can also be a messy process, and as some product always remains on the fingers, it can feel like you’re wasting precious product. Using this brush will ensure you only apply what you need to face, giving you more uses from one pot. Take care to avoid the eye area when applying the masks.
