Today I'll be sharing my newest skincare purchase. I've only used it two times so far, but I already feel like I can see a difference in my skin.

During Christmas I received a gift card to The Body Shop, so I went into their store to look at some masks, because I was in need of a clearing mask. 
After opening, looking and smelling their different masks, I decided on this one the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask. The reason why, was because it reminded me a lot of my favorite GlamGlow mask a few years back. That mask is hella expensive, so I had to say goodbye to using it, but now this mask has taken over! 

So why do I love this mask so much? My number one thing when using a mask, is that I want to see a difference when I take it off. 
With this mask, right after you've applied it, it begins to feel minty and fresh on the skin. 
Next up it starts to dry out, it has that clay feeling and starts to turn lighter in color. The mask is filled with charcoal and I think seaweed (at least it looks like seaweed) and these ingredients are the only ones that stay dark on the skin, while everything else dries out. 
When it's completely dry (about 10-15 minutes) and you look at yourself in the mirror, you'll see small dark dots mostly all over your nose, but also a bit on your cheeks and in between your brows. This is all of the oils, the mask has pulled out from your pores! I love seeing that it has actually done something! Then when you take it off, all the charcoal and grid in the mask, helps exfoliate your skin - it's quite a process, especially getting all the seaweed off, because it really sticks to your skin. But when the mask is completely washed off, your skin feels amazingly soft and smooth and you'll notice that the pores on your nose are lighter and smaller.
The next 15 minutes your skin might look a little red, both because the mask is very purifying, but also because of the charcoal and seaweed you've been trying to rub off.
Just use a good serum, oil and moisturizer and your skin will be looking new!
