The Body Shop – Face Masks

I dropped by The Body Shop a few days ago to re purchase the Lightening Touch. I wanted to stock up on it ’cause I really like it.

When I got there I found out that it is out of stock and it has been discontinued. I got so disappointed. Good products always get discontinued. I wonder why.

Anyway, I picked up their latest face masks (I also went there for these face masks). I have been wanting to get these but I didn’t have time (I’m always in a hurry every time I go out).

These masks has 5 kinds and I couldn’t choose which one to get. So, I picked up the 5 scents. A mask for every need of your skin. Clarifying, energizing & radiance, deep nourishing, plumping, and purifying.

If you have read my 10 step skin care post one of the steps there is facial masks. This is my Saturday ritual. I usually used Korean and Japanese facial masks. I want to try these masks ’cause it’s organic and 100% vegetarian. Aside from it has very good ingredients.

Please read the description of each mask so you will know the ingredients and where it comes from and what it does for your skin.

Here they are:
