When it comes to skincare products, I like to use gentle effective ones that keep my skin youthful, beautiful and blemishes free. My favorite skincare product to help keep my skin looking and feeling the best is The Body Shop Warming Mineral Mask. It is an affordable mask that feels just like a facial treatment you would get at an expensive spa. It is that lovely to use.
Packaging & Pricing
The Warming Mineral Mask comes in a 3.3-ounce fluid ounce squeezable plastic tube that can be recycled after using up the product. The cost of the mask is around seventeen dollars, but I wait until it goes on sale and try to get it half off because $17 is just a bit too much for me on the budget I am on. However, I will say the mask is worth every penny do end up spending on it because it is gentle and very effective at keeping my skin healthy.
Natural Ingredients in the Mask
* Vitamin E
* Cinnamon Bark Oil
* Ginger Oil
* Kaolin Clay
Texture, Appearance & Scent
The texture of the mask is silky smooth, but rich, thick and creamy with a white creamy appearance. As soon as it is applied to the skin, it provides a warming soothing sensation that is very calming and relaxing. Best of all, the mask does not dry, cake up or crack like a traditional clay mask does. Instead, the mask stays moist and soothing to the skin, which makes the mask easy to wash off with warm water and a cloth. The scent of the mask is a light warming clay like scent. There is not much of a fragrance to this mask at all which was very nice.
Applying the Mask
Before I apply this facial mask to my skin, I like to exfoliate my skin well with an organic exfoliating scrub to help remove any dead skin cells from my face. I feel when the skin is well cleansed and exfoliated, the purifying and nourishing facial mask soaks deep beneath the skin to help cleanse and nourish it well. Once my face is well exfoliated, I apply a thin even layer of the mask onto my face and leave it on for at least 30 minutes, but you can leave it on for less or longer if you prefer. After, I wash the mask off with a warm wet cloth and plenty of warm water. After the facial mask treatment, I massage a good hydrating facial cream into my skin to help nourish it a bit more, fight signs of aging and prevent my skin from becoming damaged from the sun, air pollution, dryness and other environmental factors that can be harsh on the skin.
For my sensitive dry skin, this is the best facial mask for me, but I do know all skin types are different so while this mask works well for me, it may not work well for you. However, I will definitely continue on using it for as long as The Body Shop makes it because it is by far one of my favorite purifying clay masks to use.
