MAKE THE MOST OUT OF MASK

For the longest time, I thought I always had allover oily skin. NOT.

I wasn’t born to have perfect skin, eventually. I had severe acnes during teenager period and that problem still chasing me until now. Adult acne sucks! So, of course I have oily skin, but not like allover. As I grew older, seems like the oil production slow down and some dry spots below the cheeks near my jaw, appeared. 

Before I found out about MULTIMASKING technique, I use to apply facial mask on my oily part only. The rest are left behind blank. For those who are not familiar with multimasking, it’s actually a clever technique to apply different mask at the same time on different part of face. So, mask for oily skin goes to the oily part, and mask for dry skin goes to the dry part. Yes, this is a current huge trend in beauty world, and THE BODY SHOP are jumping on it.

Welcoming a range of facial mask, THE BODY SHOP SUPERFOOD MASKS. 

Five different facial masks, packed with natural ingredients and 100% vegetarian. They’re also paraben-free, silicone-free, mineral oil-free and paraffins-free.

  1. Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask is 100% vegan, and great for detox.
  2. British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask is also 100% vegan and great for adding hydration.
  3. Amazonian Acai Energising Radiance Mask is also 100% vegan and great for energising. 
  4. Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask is great for nourishing.
  5. Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask is great to brighten. 

Each mask comes with different purpose and textures (cream & gel). But they all have one thing in common, they smell amazingly natural. As big fan of roses scent, I love British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask scent. One of them even looks great enough to eat. But don’t!

Made out of Ethiopian Honey, the gel texture really resembles honey shades and scents. When applied on my dry part of face, it sort of melting on the skin, and left mine feeling calm and relax. So yeah, instead of leaving my dry part blank, now I’m multimasking with two types of masks. 

This range of mask will be available throughout The Body Shop Indonesia’s stores next month, October 2016. Make sure you pick the right masks for your skin need.

CALLING ALL JET SETTERS OUT THERE

This facial mask is a seriously must have.

You might have heard or read it somewhere that our skin suffered while flying. Yup that pressurized plane cabin is a total moisture-sapper. That’s why some people (read: me) thought it’s essential to not just apply moisturizer, but hydrating facial mask too (especially on those long haul flights). Unfortunately, most facial masks are so troublesome. The sheet ones look ridiculous when applied (don’t you agree?), and those hardening masks needs water for rinsing. 

Well, am I glad Beauty Box Indonesia sent me this product to try: Glam Glow THIRSTYMUD™ HYDRATING TREATMENT. It’s not just a mask, it’s a total treatment for extreme hydration. Unlike Supermud Clearing Treatment, this won’t hardened on skin, and (if you wish) no need to rinse. What I did: I wiped with tissue and massage the remaining all over the face and neck (yes, never ever forgot your neck). Don’t you think it’s so perfect for moisturizing while traveling on long haul flight? The texture is clear when applied, it just looked like my face was wet (look at my pic above). Expect a tingling sensation and It won’t hardened, so I can talk and laugh, and eat whenever I wish. And the best of all, no need to rinse. Now that person next to me wouldn’t think I’m a weirdo. The result? My skin looked fresh, glowing and I believe it looked more pinkish (look at the after pic above). It didn’t give me that tight feeling afterwards too, instead I felt my skin more supple.

Inside the packaging they recommended to use this 2-3 times per week or when needed. And for those who have drier skin even on the land, use this for a night time treatment. Apply thinly and just leave it on. See the ‘magic’ when you wake up. It’s also great for your man, to calm & restores post-shaved skin.
