I used to use this in the winter months only, and use the blue corn scrub in summer! but after this past winter.. my skin has turned from a really oily skin to oil combo skin (I guess that's the thing when turning into mid 20s?). I luv the scent like all other reviewers , and so does my dog! He just wanna lick it all off my face whenever I have this mask on my face. It cleanses (although not as thoroughly clean as blue corn), moisturizes (really well)! The scrub part doesn't really work.. I'm relying on another scrub for that. Esp my forehead and nose build up dead skin pretty fast, and this gentle scrub won't do it. but yeah~ definetly a recommended product for everyone! from oily to dry skin. And the price is great too! =D
it sucks up the dirt on my skin in the most gentle and nature way
I bought this product after recommandation from Body Shop. At first I bought the Blue Corn Scrub Mask, but this was too "hard" for me. It made my skin burn, and although it really worked, the burning when I first put it on was not worth it.
Anyway, I bought Honey & Oat 3-in-1 Scrub Mask, and I really like it. I use it 2 times a week, and my skin is soft and clean. Will buy again. :)
The smell of this is what made me buy it. The smell is a divine oatmeal kind of really clean smell. My feels nice after using this. I really love it. Would re-purchase. I love the Body Shop!!!!
I really love this product during the winter months in MN. I have oily/combination skin, but in the deep freeze of January and February my skin gets flaky and oily if not properly cared for. This mask helps to calm and moisturize my face. I like to use it while I'm in the shower and let it stay on my face during that entire time--I think the package says to leave it on for 15 minutes, but I don't often have that kind of time, so the 3-5 minutes in the shower has been perfect for my skin. I use it about once or twice a week in the winter months, more if necessary.
This is one of my favorite, all time favorite.However I'm not sure if it is giving me break-out now. My skin feels soft and smooth after each application, but the next day I wake up there is always some spots coming out.Perhaps it is indeed too rich for my oily skin.But then the smell of it is really a big plus. The delicious smell simply lasts a long time...
I really like this mask. althought it says for normal to dry skin, it works for my oily skin. Each time after I used it, I feel skin smooth and soft.
This is still my fave mask, that I have come back to time and time again since the early 80's when I discovered it. It's a mask and a scrub in one. Cleanses without stripping, doesn't scratch your face to shreds, gives that 'glow' and seems to calm breakouts. I have used Clarins, Aubrey, Alba, Estee, and countless others, but this is still the old reliable for me. Also love the scent - very comforting. Value for money.
Having oily skin, the sales people almost always sway me toward products that strip the oil & moisture right out my skin. The problem with that is my pores then go into overdrive to compensate, especially in the late fall/winter months. This product is great at moisturizing my skin without leaving it greasy. Just soft, glowing skin and it smells wonderful. I do wish they would put this thing in a tube, but I do ok by just washing my hands before use to avoid at least a little contamination. This @ night along with my Origins Get Down/Make a Difference cream in the morning keeps my skin regulated and most importantly, healthy looking.
UPDATE: Stopped using this, caused some cystic pimples.
Excellent and very soft mask/scrub for sensitive skin. I like it because it does not dr in and after 10 min or so you massage the mask into your skin before rinsing it. It is nice exfoliating action whicj is soo soft. It leaves your skin looing healthy and with a nice glow.
There are so many masks out there, from DS makes to very expensive ones, but this is one of the better ones, and the price is good!
One negative point (as for so many of TBS products): i do not like the packaging in a tub. It is good for the first few weeks of use, but it tends to dry out and it is not so hygienic either, a tube would be far better. So for the packaging, only 4 lippies
