Hello everyone! Welcome to today’s post which is a review on this beautiful mask by the Body Shop. I use the Honey and Oat 3 in 1 Scrub Mask about once a month (really I should try to use it more!), and I really like this product.
To begin with, it smells divine – a really comforting, warm, sweet, oat scent. The mask is supposed to cleanse, polish and moisturise all in one. I would agree with the last two, but seeing as I apply this mask to already clean skin, I can’t really comment on the first claim. It contains little oat granules which gently exfoliate the skin both when you apply the product and when you rinse it off. It leaves my skin so smooth, like baby bum smooth. The mask says it is for normal and dry skin types, however because of the clay in the product, I would hazard a guess that it would suit oily skin types as well.
Directions say to leave it on the face for 5-10 minutes. I usually leave it on for the ten minutes, but because it has a clay base, it can be a bit hard to rinse off and sometimes I need a face cloth to remove the last bits of oats stuck to my skin.
The first 5 ingredients listed (from most to least quantity) are: water, oats, C12-15 alkyl benzoate (an emollient), kaolin (clay), honey. So four out of the five ingredients are recognisable and well known for their skin benefits which I think speaks highly of the product.
I would rate this product a 9/10 and would recommend it to anyone wanting a bit of an all-rounder mask. It has become a staple in my skincare cupboard. It retails for $24.95 for 100ml (which has lasted me for ages, so I would say good value) at the Body Shop.
Have you tried this product? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below.
Thanks for reading, Christina xo
