The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask | Review

This face mask promises to instantly cool your skin while lifting away impurities and removing excess oil. This mask should cleanse, soothe and refresh your skin. It is recommended to use this mask once or twice per week after cleansing. This mask has a non-drying formula and should be left to work on your skin for 5-10 minutes.

I find it really difficult to allow for time to use a face mask regularly. Face masks are not the most practical or convenient of products. I like to use a face mask while in the bath, so I may leave the mask on for longer than recommended. I like doing this though, as you feel like you are making the most of it and letting it get deep into your skin.
This face mask obviously has a Tea Tree scent, is green in colour and has a thick, smooth and spreadable consistency. One thing this mask definitely does is make you look like the Wicked Witch of the West! Although the consistency is easy to apply, I find I have to apply quite a thick layer all over, otherwise the mask begins to sink into my skin and disappear. I also find that this mask does dry on some areas of my skin, but this may be due to the time spent on my face. For me, the "cooling" sensation you should get when applied to your skin is actually more of a tingling sensation with some heat behind it. The first time I used the mask, this sensation worried me as I thought it may burn my skin, but thankfully this mask has had no ill effects on my sensitive skin. This mask leaves my skin feeling soft and visibly clean. Unfortunately this mask does not seem to visibly clear or prevent spots, but I do like how well it cleans my skin. I would definitely recommend this to people with oily/combination skin who would like a deep-cleansing face mask. Once finished, I won't repurchase this product due to the fact that it doesn't do everything that I want it to do. I'd like to try the Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask next.

    I have a bit of a love hate relationship with Tea Tree Oil - it's so effective but the scent can be very dominant and I'm not sure I would be able to cope with the scent all over my face :o) Xx

    Yes, it can be a little overpowering! I much prefer sweet or marine scents. xxx
