I have an unhealthy obsession with body products that make you smell good…
If you read my last body shop haul you know that the Tahitian Tiare hand soap is one of the best smells in the world in my opinion. It was probably sent from the gods, it’s that good. It is one of my favourite smells ever and I found out that it comes in a body wash too, so I knew I had to get it.
And naturally when I was in the store I got distracted with face masks, and I picked up two more. The first one I picked up is the ‘British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask’ This is a gel like consistency with real rose flakes in it. It’s super hydrating and it smells really good (like roses obviously). I would say it’s a dupe for the Peter Thompson Roth Rose Stem Cell Repair Gel Mask. It’s nice for when my skin is feeling super tight and needs an extra boost of hydration before I carry on with the rest of my skincare routine.
The next one I picked up is the ‘Chinese Ginseng and Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask’. This mask is white and has the consistency of cottage cheese with some oats in it (appetizing I know…). The first thing I noticed about it is the smell SUCKS. The scent is not my jam but I wanted to try it to see if it did good things for my skin. It dries all the way like a clay mask would, and when you wash it off the grains in it exfoliate your skin to remove any dead skin. I did notice that my skin was pretty smooth after! However I don’t know if the smell is worth it since I have other polishing masks that pretty much do the same thing.
I love the body shop because the quality of ingredients is pretty solid and it’s a lot less expensive than going to Sephora for one. These sell for $28 CAD plus HST which is pretty good considering the average mask at Sephora is anywhere from $60-$80 depending on the brand.
I can’t wait to see what else the body shop has in store!
That’s all I have for now!
