We often forget the importance of natural, nutritional substance, the kind of ingredients that are difficult to turn down when most needed. The Body Shop is one of my favourite stores to shop at for skincare, alongside Lush and Holland and Barrats. When I purchase a skincare product, I must admit, I do always fall for the fancy ones. But it does come to a point – and for everyone, when you realise that your skin needs more goodness than anything. In comes Aloe Vera.
When I bought this Aloe Protective Restoring Mask, I thought it would be your typical thick mud-mask, difficult to remove and a boring process of having to go through. However, the consistency is actually thick, cool and creamy which instantly sank into my skin. I can leave the product on for roughly 30mins, wash it off and go to sleep really feeling my skin has quenched its thirst. Seriously, it does feel like your skin has drank a cold glass of fresh water.
If you’re still in search for your perfect mask, I’d highly recommend giving this a go – and because Aloe Vera is suitable for everyone, you’ll be surprised at how well this works. When my skin is in trouble, this Aloe mask always makes my skin come out looking clearer and feeling smoother the next morning.
I can’t wait to try out some of the other Aloe Vera gems The Body Shop has to offer – especially when they’re this good! I’ll keep you updated!
