The climate in Bangalore is weird – from simmering and dusty to cooler and less dusty is what I personally feel 😛 Rushing to work amidst the frenzied chaos and making it back home through the same sure does take its toll on my health and beauty. Not to mention the “mentally drained out” feeling you have by the end of the day! And, I really couldn’t remember the last time my face looked fresh and rosy. Hectic as it gets, I do take time off to unwind and let the day’s stress wear away. And what better than an energizing face mask to soothe my skin and boost that natural glow! Even better when it comes with a heavenly fragrance apt to sweep away the purest of evil and transport you to wonderland! Okay, I know I went overboard with THAT one 😛 But trust me, the moment you spread that bottle of goodness on your face, you’ll know what I’m talking about! In this post, I would be reviewing The Body Shop Amazonian Acai Energising Radiance Mask.
2495 INR for 75 ml.
Give your skin a wake up call with our Amazonian Acai Energising Radiance Mask. Inspired by the rituals of Amazonian tribes, our juicy 100% vegan face mask is a bouncy blend containing acai berry, guarana and babassu oil and is formulated without parabens, paraffin, silicone or mineral oil. This vibrant face mask exfoliates and invigorates sleepy skin to help it look wide awake. Use with our Facial Mask Brush for an energising facial at home.
My Experience with The Body Shop Amazonian Acai Energising Radiance Mask:
Let me start off by explaining what the mask does – this is a gel-based mask that contains exfoliating beads that claims to revive dull and fatigued skin and improve skin texture. The invigorating scent instantly refreshes and rejuvenates the mind! The product is a light crimson-colored gel with exfoliating granules that are not harsh on the skin. The gel consistency makes it easy to spread on the face and there is no problem of the mask drying up causing your skin to stretch.
I religiously apply the mask thrice a week and leave it on for 15 minutes or slightly more (the bottle says 10 minutes but I love the smell so much)! Well, I gently scrub my entire face while washing off with lukewarm water and pat dry. Voila! Say hello to fresh, plump skin that’s revived from all signs of weariness. I find this mask to be the perfect “pick-me-up” after a hectic day at work. As it works its magic in less than 10 minutes, this can also be your “go-to prep” right before a party.
I believe it is the goodness of ingredients like acai that brightens up skin so effectively. Acai berries contain Vitamin A, C and E, making it ideal for skin regeneration. The mask does tingle lightly on application, but the sensation fades soon after.
Ladies, I have oily skin with enlarged pores and I should tell you that my facial pore size looks diminished with regular usage of the mask, and it also evens out skin tone. Let’s raise a toast to this vegan, all-natural face mask that brightens up your facial skin in a jiffy!
