Beauty | Going Old School
I haven't been to the Body Shop for years, I used to spend a lot of my time when I was a teenager in the store pondering over face masks and creams to try and control my oily skin.
Once of my favourites was the Blue Corn Mask so I decided to give it a go again after many years later!
I put it on and it still smells the same as it did all those years ago, nothing overpowering just a light scent. You only need a light layer, I was too heavy handed at the beginning and had quite a lot over my chin and cheeks. The areas where I put a light layer dried pretty quickly and the thicker areas stayed quite soft. It felt really nice on, very cooling on the skin and not uncomfortable.
I went in the shower and washed it off in there, this is where things changed. As I started to wash it off it felt my like face was being scratched, it was a horrible feeling and I couldn't get it off quick enough! Afterwards I splashed my face with cold water to get rid of the excess, once I dried my face it felt tight and itchy. Within 10 minutes my skin looked dry with a flaky area around my nose. I had to slather my face in my Elemis cream to make it feel better.
Overall I was very disappointed with this, I don't know if the formula has changed or my skin has become more sensitive to the scrub but I wont be using it again! I don't want to waste it though so I think I might use it a bit of a foot mask/scrub, hopefully it will work better that way!
I will be doing a review on the honey and oat mask next, so look out for that in the next couple of weeks.
Do you use any Body Shop products?
