F.M.F : TBS Himalayan Charcoal / Purifying Glow Mask

Hello 🙂

It’s that time of the month again, yes- you’ve guessed correctly; face mask Friday! A very new and exciting product from The Body Shop. You all know my love for the brand and trying new face masks! I’m sure you’ve all seen the press and bright in-store displays of these new masks. Today we shall be typing about the Himalayan Charcoal – Purifying Glow Mask.

~ F.M.F : TBS Himalayan Charcoal / Purifying Glow Mask ~


These new masks are all from the new Body Shop face mask range; these new masks are 100% vegetarian and part of the ‘multi-masking’ application! There are 5 new masks in this premium range, all designed to to do different things for different areas / skin concerns. Ranging from clarifying, plumping and moisturizing!

This mask claims..

” Refine and revive your skin with our Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask. Inspired by Ayurvedic traditions, this 100% vegan tingling clay mask is infused with bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves and organic tea tree oil. And it’s been formulated without parabens, paraffin, silicone or mineral oil. This invigorating charcoal face mask draws out impurities and refines the appearance of pores for healthy-looking skin with a glow that shows. ” bodyshop.co.uk

You can clearly see and smell the fresh green tea!


When first applied the mask feels cooling with a fresh, green tea scent. I does tingle slightly on the skin, more so around spottier areas. I really like the fresh scent as it is very soothing. Within 3-4 mins thinner parts on the mask were already drying!

I left the mask on for the full 10 mins in which the tingling sensation continued slightly. As this mask focuses on pore treatments I’m guessing this is why. My skin also felt tighter. It didn’t dry down completely but I may have applied it a little too thick..

After washing off, very easily, there was no extra redness added to my face- which is always reliving to see! My skin continued to feel cool with the scent fading after a few mins.The tight feeling had gone but left a soft and cleansed finish on the skin. Nose and chin areas looked a lot clearer and general appearance just a lot nicer!

It did feel very luxe with the scent, cooling feeling and honestly just using the pretty packaging! I would say the each of the ingredient claims rings true and it is a very nice mask. In regard to multi masking this one is perfect for spotty or oily areas! If not perfect to use alone to help with oily skin.

At £15 each these very nice looking jars are on the pricey side- but they really do do what they claim- You can always get samples and offers in store too- go and test them all! Do let me know if you’ve tried this mask or any of the new ones in the range. Or any good masks for oily skin?

Thank You So Much For Reading 🙂
