The Body Shop #Forever Against Animal Testing | Mask Review


Well hello everyone, how was your weekend? So clearly as i'm posting on a Monday means Mask Monday, i'm guessing the title might be confusing so basically around Christmas time The Body Shop launched their #Forever Against Animal Testing campaign and a long side that campaign they designed a mask set in a beautiful rabbit box with a headband to use a long side that masks. So enough rambling basically i'm reviewing those masks for you, as those masks are in the core collection. 

What does the set include? 
The Set included 3 types of masks and each type of mask came with 3 sachets. The masks were; British Rose Plumping Mask, Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask, Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask. Let's see what my thoughts are. 

British Rose Plumping Mask 

Price

£17.00 for 75ml 

Packaging 
The masks itself comes in a brown tinted jar with a label corresponding the product.  

What does it claim to do?

'Refreshing gel face mask
For skin that needs to be quenched and re-plumped with moisture to reveal its dewy glow again
Moisturises, soothes and tones skin' (Source The Body Shop)


How to use? 
I applied this mask to fresh clean skin and left in on between 5 to 10 minutes before removing with a warm flannel. 

Overall Opinion 
this mask had a gel consistency and once applied you don't think it's going to dry down but it does. Overall I found that this mask just made my skin look more lifted than anything, not glowy or pump just lifted. The pictures below show before and after.

How to use? 
I applied this mask to fresh clean skin and left in on between 5 to 10 minutes before removing with a warm flannel. 

Overall Opinion 
So this masks has large chunks in it which i'm guessing is charcoal, it tingles a lot but I guess that means it is doing something. What I loved about this mask is that for a charcoal base one it dried down so quickly, so there was no messing around. Below shoes before and after.

How to use? 
I applied this mask to fresh clean skin and left in on between 5 to 10 minutes before removing with a warm flannel. 

Overall Opinion 
Firstly this mask is green and has a cucumber scent which I personally love that scent but just a side note. The consistency is like a scrub so be careful if you have very sensitive skin because also it tingles but the tingling doesn't last that long. Below shows a before and after.

Which one do I prefer ? 

If I had to pick a favourite mask I would say the purifying glow mask because it dries so quickly but also because my skin looks glowy and awake after using it. 

Have you tried these masks? P.s please sign the campaign to ban animal testing (link here)
