    I first got this as a sample and knew after that I had to have it. I have acne prone skin and this really helps it and leaves it so soft, glowing, and helps exfoliate and clear my skin up.

    Comments about The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask:

    I have horrid black heads on my nose and acne round the edge of my face ...yum yum. Tried this at a friends house and found it did a really good job. I actually quite like the smell and the gritty exfoliation bits. It does tingle for me but then I find even baby wipes make my face tingle. After washing it off my blackheads and acne are definitely clearer, unfortunately I don't feel their completely clear, but nearly. Hopefully a few more applications will improve them further.

    Comments about The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask:

    I use this mask about once a week and it does help to minimize the blackheads on my cheeks, nose, and chin. The mask is easy to apply with your clean fingers, but is messy: there are lots of little pieces of something in this product which I personally do not like. I don't care for the smell of this mask either, though if it wasn't so strong I wouldn't mind it as much. I have sensitive/combo skin, and this mask did tingle for me when I applied it and left my skin pink after I removed the product with warm water.

    Overall, this mask does minimize my blackheads and make my skin look and feel clean and healthy, but I'm not satisfied enough with the results and the product itself to repurchase in the future.

    Worked well but not for me

    Comments about The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask:

    I have never had any problems with sensitive skin nor do I have sensitive skin. My skin in general, is clear and not oily at all. I wanted to try this because I heard charcoal masks are the best type to use. It felt fine when I put it on, dried quickly and the smell was ok. When I took it off with a wash cloth I saw that my skin was instantly red. I thought it was from me scrubbing a little hard to get it off but then it felt warm and a little like a sunburn. The best way to describe it would be when you use a tingle tanning lotion. After taking it off I tried to apply my makeup to my face and my makeup burned my skin, I took it off quickly and my redness was even worse and continued the rest of the day and throughout the night.

    This mask feels great on your skin. It's a little weird with all the flecks of whatever in it, but that didn't hinder the performance. It dried very quickly on my face and left my skin smooth and clean after I washed it off.

      At first this face mask was amazing and I have combination/sensitive skin, but last night I put it on within a second of having it on my skin was burning and instantly red and I wake up this morning with a pimply incredibly bumby acne sort of rash all over the areas I applied. NEVER BUT THIS. Don't waste your money or destroy your self esteem. Never buying this product again

        I finally got the email that this was back in stock so I immediately went to Ulta.com and purchased two! I got them in the mail yesterday along with several other products. I cannot say good enough things about this mask. I LOVE the company and I love the way they produce their products. The mask is great! It doesn't have the best smell, but it's not horrible. It's cooling and firming while drying and immediately after removal your skin feels so refreshed! I have dry, very sensitive skin and this works great! My skin does get a little irritated, but it's more from removing the mask than anything else. I follow up with a deep nighttime cream lotion and the next day my skin feels so great!

        Comments about The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask:

        Ok so I loved this mask. I bought it based off of the reviews and I am prepared to order more. A little background: I have VERY sensitive skin (to put things into perspective, if a piece of HAIR brushes up against my skin for too long it gets red and itchy and usually leaves behind a pimple. Extremely sensitive!) and while it did sting quite a bit while drying, it didn't leave me red or irritated. My skin has been very dry in the winter months (Michigan weather ugh!) and my usually FLAWLESS skin tone and texture has been taking a real beating with constant acne breakouts and blemishes for the past several months. My face has been HIDEOUS! This mask has smoothed my skin's texture and leaves my face feeling clean and refreshed. I can see the difference already and I have used it about 3 times. My nose looks really shiny (because it has helped remove some blackheads and smoothed the texture) but I would rather that. My skin looks brighter, cleaner, and a lot less dull. The smell is HEAVENLY and the flakes are rather interesting. The only con I can think of is that it is a pain to remove it (have to wash my face a few times) and I am not sure what this stuff does to my drain (if anything, I am just unsure if this should go down a sink vs. trash) but other than that its been great. I have been using it with the tea tree oil to ward off pimples before they even start. Its no miracle worker (I am not sure what is for acne-prone, DRY skin like I have) but it helps x10000!

          I bought the small sachet to try the new line of masks. the formula is interesting with flakes of either the green tea leaves or the bamboo charcoal. the smells is amazing if you like the strong tea tree smell and it leaves a tingling minty cool feeling when you put on the mask. I found that the dried flakes were a little harder to remove and you need to constantly rub at it with warm water. but once the mask is off, my skin felt fresh and super soft! would love to get the big tub soon
