Winter is here and I’m so pleased! Boots, scarves, sweaters can now be flaunted! ^_^
Well that has nothing to do with my review here but I’m just excited! It’s quite odd to review masks because really, how can you measure how much of a difference a mask makes? I’ll try to be as detailed as I can.
The Body Shop Honey & Oat 3 in 1 Scrub Mask is obviously targeted towards lazy people like me who’d like cleansing, exfoliation and moisturizing to be done all in one! This one smells like honey and cereal but for some reason I wasn’t too fond of it. It isn’t bad or unpleasant, but I just didn’t find it very appealing.
This has a creamy consistency with soft particles which are oats. You apply this to your face and neck like a normal mask, wait for 5 – 10 minutes till it dries and then massage your face and rinse it off. That’s where the exfoliation part kicks in.
I can tell that this brightens up my face for a while after I use this but other than that I didn’t feel like this had any long term effect. I finished using this a month ago so over that period I didn’t notice any big change in my skin due to this.
I guess this best to use if you’re going out or want to look your best and want some to brighten up your look and feel fresh. While it says that it moisturizes your skin, I found it to be a little bit drying on mine. I’m guessing it would be better for people for normal skin and not very dry like mine.
The exfoliant in this, I actually like. The oats are small pieces and very gentle on the skin. I generally used this once a week and it lasted a few months. While it’s nice for that pamper time for yourself, I don’t think I’ll be buying this again.
