Masks -The Body Shop -Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask

on 11/23/2017 6:31:00 PM

This mask claims to boost hydration, replenish the skin, and make your skin softer after one use. This mask did nothing at all for my skin so I returned it. I tried this mask 3 or 4 times and each time I saw no difference in my skin. It's pretty pricy so I'm very glad I returned it. The mask itself is a non sticky thin jelly texture. It goes on easily and washes off easily. I let it sit way longer than the advised 10 minutes with no effect. The jar is nice and heavy but narrow so you have to dig in to get product. Overall, I do not recommend this. Just get a really good moisturizer.



Masks -The Body Shop -Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask

This is a solid exfoliating mask. It's a medium to thin white paste that applies smoothly on the skin. It's has a light herby scent that's not overpowering. It burns a little when first applied. I leave it on for longer than the 10 minutes on the instructions. I just kind of go about my business and wash it off when I think to. The chemical exfoliation is pretty weak. It's got granules that are the right size to exfoliate but not be too harsh. When I wash it off, I treat it like a scrub which is where it does most of the work. It does not brighten my skin or revitalize it. It scrubs it and mildly exfoliates. So far I see no difference in my skin including no difference in my pores. Overall this is an ok mask but it does not excite me.
The jar is heavy and solid, but it's deep so you kind of have to dig into it to get the product. I got it for cheap enough that I will use it up, but I feel like there are far more effective masks, especially for the price. If I had paid full price it would have been returned. For scrubbing, I prefer MAC volcanic ash exfoliator. For chemical exfoliation, I stick to my 2% BHA liquid from Paula's choice and retinol. Also, word of caution. I got one of the grains stuck in my eye. That hurt so bad and I could not get it out. I ended up filling my sink with water and sticking my head under water with my eyes open and swishing my head around. Think swirly in a sink with your eyes open. It really really was not fun.


Cleansers -The Body Shop -Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser

I first bought this years ago on a complete whim, and was impressed with how it cleansed my skin without drying, and actually lived up to the "calming" claim, as it could soothe red and irritated skin. I used it up and went on to try other cleansers. I recently repurchased this because I was looking for a cleanser to use in the shower in the am., not something to deep clean or remove makeup, but just something to freshen my skin without drying it, and I remembered really liking this. This has been reformulated, and it's just not as good.

I can't put my finger on what has changed but I just don't find this as soothing as I did before. It's a cream cleanser that does not foam at all. It doesn't dry my skin out or cause any bad reaction, but it doesn't "calm" like the previous formulation did. All in all, it's an okay product but it's pretty expensive and not super impressive. And it really annoys me that the front of the bottle has a picture of aloe leaves (cross-sectioned) and it says something like "with hand-filleted aloe from Campeche, mexico" but when you read the ingredients, the only aloe-based ingredient is "aloe powder". Give me a break.


Fragrances -The Body Shop -Leap Perfume

on 11/21/2017 7:54:00 AM

I cannot believe The Body Shop discontinued this oil either. Years ago I went into our local shop to get a new bottle and an infused body lotion. I bought both constantly. I was told it was discontinued and that it was never coming back.. it never has. After years of begging and pleading with them at the corporate level to give me the “notes” and being refused, I called our friends in Canada, and they emailed me the information I wanted from their corporate office. Mimosa is definitely on the list. If I can find the list (it’s been years and years) I will post it here. Thanks for fragrance ideas..I’m looking into them. I’ve never found anything even close to Leap. I’m willing to try any suggestions ♥️

It feels really cheap and doesn’t sit on my skin well it rubs off and leaves it feeling dry which made the redness in my blemishes look worse
