I have a bit of an obsession with deep cleansing masks and I use one at least once a week. I hate having facials at salons because I feel that there are so many excellent masks one can use at home and at the fraction of the price of a professional facial. The Body Shop have launched a new range of masks which are currently available online and in-store. I selected the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow mask (R300) to try out.


This awesome mask is packed with goodness and is a mud-textured exfoliating mask that deeply cleanses and detoxifies the skin. The mask is inspired by Ayurvedic traditions. It has a really interesting tingling feel and together with the mud-texture works to detoxify and unclog the skin.


The 100% Vegetarian formula contains active exfoliating Green tea leaves, potent tea tree oil and Bamboo charcoal which is a powerful, detoxifying superfood . Bamboo charcoal is known to adsorb accumulated impurities and excess oils. I absolutely love that this mask can safely be used 2 to 3 times a week, every week and it doesn’t irritate the skin.


  1. Ah I cannot wait to try this! I’m on a search for a good charcoal mask and the fact that ithis one is inspired by Ayurvedic traditions – that’s even better! I used to follow a strict Ayurvedic diet and the results during that time was amazing! So I’m keen to try out this product. Thanks for sharing, Abby xoxo

  2. Sounds exactly what my skin needs and I have yet to try this range of masks from Body Shop x

  3. Those ingredients sound like heaven. I like regular degular charcoal masks but i LOVE the ones with extra, natural stuff in them
