MASK SERIES : THE BODY SHOP - BLUE CORN 3-IN-1 DEEP CLEANSING MASK
I am so happy to announce that I will be starting a "MASK SERIES" on JYUKIMI.COM.
I will be posting over a period of time about masks, facial masks of all different kinds, whether it be a hydration mask, clay mask, mud mask, gel mask or even just sheet masks. I wanted to do this for quite a while but I had to try all the masks for a few months in order to be true to you as a reader.
Before I start our Mask Series journey, I do need to tell you that, although these masks may work for me, they may not be suitable for you. Before you start splashing out and buying these masks (which I would love you to do because I love it when you listen to my recommendations) you need to remember to try them first, I know most stores will offer a small sample, so you can take it away and try it before you buy it. I strongly recommend you try the smallest of bits on your hand or arm just to see if your skin reacts to the mask itself.
Enough of all the boring warnings, let's get started!
BLUE CORN 3-IN-1 DEEP CLEANSING MASK
£10 @ The Body Shop
This is the first mask of the series and I know it is very accessible as it is available at The Body Shop. It is also an affordable clay mask, at £10 a tub it is very worth the money. I actually bought this tub at The Body Shop in one of those factory outlet villages, it cost me around £7, so I grabbed myself a little bargain!
The main purpose of this mask is that it cleanses, hence the name "Deep Cleansing Mask". It really gets deep into those pores (no matter how big or small they are) and also gets rid of that layer of dead skin. There are so many reviews on this mask out there and people have said it has helped to purify their skin, help them get rid of the excess flakiness and dryness of their skin, which means this mask really does live up to it's name and purpose.
So it's a 3-In-1? What are the 3?
When I first started using this mask, I fell in love with the scent, I really can't describe the smell but it is so soothing and doesn't smell like grass... I have found some clay masks do. I hate using products which have a weird smell because my nose is quite sensitive and starts to itch when I don't like the scent, but you know The Body Shop products always seem to have a great scent.
Upon opening the tub itself, the product is like a lumpy paste, it's got a bit of a sandy texture which helps to exfoliate the face when you wash the product off. The clay itself is quite thick, but you're supposed to apply it to wet skin as it isn't very creamy, so the water helps to smoothen it out as you apply it onto your face.
You know what, the colour of the mask actually reminds me a little of black sesame ice cream, which is also a favourite of mine, so maybe that was what caught my attention?
