youthmud dupe alert!

By Layla

from Maine

Comments about The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask:

this is an exact dupe for glamglows exfoliating youthmud mask (black packaging). it is super tingle-y but it turns into a cooling sensation as it dries and by the time it is removed my skin looks glowing and feels amazing. I got 2 of the sachet packs in my stocking for Xmas and have used both of them. I love the smell too. will be buying the full size when it gets back in stock

                  Comments about The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask:

                  Over the past few years I have been trying to find the perfect face mask for my skin type, combination/oily. I came across this one as a sample and I loved it! It leaves my skin looking and feeling refreshed. I just purchased this full size and I currently have it on my face as I'm reviewing it! It has a soft tingle, and smells good. My pores are minimized and my skin if soft!

                  Comments about The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask:

                  I recently bought this because I love charcoal masks and my gosh it definitely beats all the other ones I bought in the past! When you first apply it, you can feel it going deep into your pores and feels very refreshing. The smell is very fresh too and herbal in a way. I highly recommend it especially if you have dull and oily skin.

                    I only apply makeup once or twice a week so when I do I use this before hand and let me tell you it's make a huge difference. My makeup goes on smoother and last longer. It has a refreshing tingle and after using and washing off my skin feels renewed and fresh. I love this mask and won't use any other charcoal mask again.

                        Thank you for contacting The Body Shop. If you are happy with the results you experienced with Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask, definitely keep using it! There are no rules with skin care! If you have dry skin, you can try multi-masking with our British Rose Plumping Mask or Ethiopian Honey Nourishing Mask. Apply the Charcoal Mask on oily areas, then apply the British Rose or Ethiopian Honey mask on dry areas.

                      I use acne medication (retina micro and one other topical cream every other day to daily, depending on how dry my skin is.... that being said is this mask safe or recommended to use with acne medication like this? And having dry skin as a result of using the medicine I wouldn't want to use anything that might dry out my skin anymore than it already is. Thanks

                        Thank you for contacting The Body Shop. Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask works well for blemished, problematic skin because it helps to remove impurities and excess oil in the skin. We would also recommend using Tea Tree Oil for targeted treatment of breakouts.
