The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask

What is it?

A pale green tea tree face mask with a thick consistency that is suitable for blemished skin. It claims to be a deep cleansing mask that helps fight blemishes and reduce dirt and oil on the skin.

 

The Review:

This mask has a creamy thick consistency and is a pale green colour. It comes in a tub rather than a squeezy tube which can be troublesome as we all know that tubs of products can mean a less hygienic product. Other than the packaging though, this product is lovely.

The smell is fresh, clean and as you would expect, this mask overall, is tea tree scented.

The mask glides on in a smooth layer when applied to the skin and does give a slight cooling and tingling sensation, something that I like as it makes me feel like it’s doing something.

I left it on for about 12 minutes and although I felt it get slightly harder, I still didn’t feel it get uncomfortably tight on my face like many other deep cleansing masks. It was also fairly easy to remove and came away nicely with some warm water and a muslin cloth. I generally find masks easier to remove by using a cloth.

Once I’d finished patting my skin dry I noticed my face looked both cleaner, brighter and oil free. Any redness on recent blemishes was also slightly diminished and after  a few weeks of using this I found my skin was overall less oily.

 

Worth the money?

The mask will set you back £10 and last you a long time. If you have oily or acne prone skin, this product is absolutely worth every penny. Tea tree soothes and cools whilst improving the appearance of and helping to prevent break out.

Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask

75ml tube starter kit

What is it?

A deep cleansing clay mask containing anti bacterial Manuka honey.

The Review

The texture of this mask is fairly smooth and thin, it feels cold on the skin and dries like most clay masks.

Since I’ve been using this mask I’ve noticed a real difference in my skin, just as most teens do, I suffer from occasional breakouts in my t-zone and since using this twice a week I’ve noticed this hardly ever happens anymore yay!

The mask doesn’t feel horribly tight on the face when it dries and washes off easily with the sponge in the starter kit (the kit comes with 2) leaving my skin smooth and fresh looking. The joy with this particular mask is that unlike a lot of the clay masks I’ve tried, it really does the job without drying out the skin which is amazing!

Worth the Money?

I thoroughly recommend getting the starter kit which comes with 2 sponges and 75ml of product for £14. I’ve been using this twice a week for about 2 1/2 months now and haven’t finished half the tube yet. For the results I’ve experienced and the fact that all the ingredients are natural, Liz Earle has done it again, definitely worth the money!
