Recently I came across The Body Shop's Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask.
This Matcha Tea mask is described as a pollution clearing mask due to the matcha green tea and dandelion extract which apparently help remove pollutants and impurities.
Being a mask junkie, I can say this is one of my favourite face mask from The Body Shop besides their Tea Tree mask. When I first applied, it gave me a slight tingling sensation on my skin and slowly it goes on with a cooling sensation which gave me a slight almost electric feeling.
The mask contains little particles which exfoliates my skin as I wash it off.
The mask is absorbed into my skin over time, so even if you applied a generous amount on a lot, most of it will have sunk into your skin by the time you take it off.
How to use: Apply on freshly cleaned skin using either a brush or fingers. Then leave the mask on for 5-10 minutes. After that, use luke warm water to rinse them off.
The Scent: Smells really refreshing with a light dandelion scent
The Texture: gave me a slight tingling sensation on my skin and slowly it goes on with a cooling sensation
absorbs excess oil
draws out impurities and refines appearance of pores
Overall, my skin felt really soft and plump after removing the mask. I have been using this mask for 6 months now and my skin looked visibly brighter in complexion. I would definitely recommend this mask. I do feel like this mask deep cleans the skin, but the impurities aren't visibly drawn out of the skin like with the Himalayan Charcoal mask; this is more of a deep cleaning, nourishing mask.
Will be adding this to my weekly mask routine.
