Japanese Match Tea Face Mask Review - The Body Shop*

A few months back my gob was well and truly smacked when The Body Shop asked me to try out their Charcoal Face Mask and review it on good ol' Instagram. I leaped at the opportunity and this mask has been a staple in my cosmetics cupboard ever since. I've used face masks since my teenage years and can hand on heart say it's one of the best face masks (for my face) that I've ever used. My face feels really fresh, hydrated and smooth when I've had a session with it.

The Body Shop have been kind enough to once again send me one of their latest masks to try and this time it's the Japanese Matcha Tea mask and again, I jumped at the chance. Especially since The Body Shop are now with new owners and are 100% cruelty free. This mask also happens to be vegan too so bonus!

Like the charcoal mask, the green tea one comes in a little glass jar which I always think feels super posh especially compared to those 99p packet masks (which are also a fave of mine from Superdrug!) but these ones feel like the ultimate pamper treat. I learnt from the last mask too that applying the gloop with a clean foundation brush is so much easier and cleaner than doing it with your fingers. I believe you can get 'face mask brushes' from The Body Shop but I just use a foundation brush which came in one of those cheap kits and it works really well and is easy to rinse afterwards.

These masks will set you back £17 which sounds a little pricey but I've had my other jar now since May this year and it's still half full. I use it probably twice a month as I don't overdo it on my sensitive skin so depending on how generous you are and how often, the jars can last you a while. The other benefit to using a brush to apply your mask is the product goes a lot further so I'd definitely recommend trying that trick if you haven't before. They also don't dry up or go funky (speaking from 5 months experience) which I think is reassuring when you're spending a fair wad on a face mask, plus you can recycle your jar afterwards to store bobby pins or earrings for example.

Let me know if you've tried any of the masks from this range before and which one I should try next. The Rose one sounds lush!

Thanks for reading,
