You want to look like the best version of yourself, with a glowing, clear complexion. So what if we told you that we’ve found the perfect face mask that will draw out toxins, reduce excess oil, make your skin look clearer and your pores smaller? And a big jar is less than £20?

Charcoal superfood face mask

It’s part of the Body Shop’s range of Superfood Face Masks for your face. The range includes the vegan British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask, and the vegetarian Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask, but we’re here to celebrate the vegan Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask.

You apply the exfoliating mask directly to your clean skin, where it will instantly cleanse, detoxify and shrink your pores. It tingles as it sets as the bamboo charcoal from the Himalayan foothills draw out your excess oils and impurities. The green tea leaves from Japan exfoliate your skin and the organic tea tree oil from Kenya will help to keen your skin looking clear.

“Go semi-pro and re-discover clearer-looking skin! This purifying mask leaves all skin types deeply purified, so use it once or twice a week at room temperature to remove make-up and impurities. It’s glowing ‘just woke up like this’ skin in a jar,” says Vanda Serrador, The Body Shop’s expert facialist.

Digital Editor of Confetti, Zoe Burke, agrees: “This is my ultimate go-to beauty product. I’ve scraped my jar clean! It’s perfect for those busy days when I don’t have time to do much in the way of self-care but I want my skin to look instantly revived.”

“While it’s among the newest superfoods, charcoal has long been known for its purifying properties. Charcoal attaches itself to toxins, absorbing them before the stomach can absorb them into the bloodstream,” explains Jennifer Hirsch, Beauty Botanist for The Body Shop. “This is the same mechanism that powers Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Masks purifying activity on skin. This mask contains one of nature’s great refiners, Himalayan charcoal designed to detoxify. This effective ingredient is then combined with Community Trade organic tea tree oil to give an instant cooling and soothing effect with the addition of Japanese green tea leaves, known to be rich in polyphenols like flavonoids and catechins, tannins and antioxidants.”

You can even buy it in a set with a face wash too!
