review: Blue Corn 3-in-1 Deep Cleansing Scrub Mask
if you love multi-tasking products as much as i do, then you are going to love what The Body Shop's Blue Corn 3-in-1 Deep Cleansing Scrub Mask does!
1. it deep cleans
2. it exfoliates
3. it moisturizes
so, how does it do all of these things? check out the fabulous key ingredients:
bergamot, geranium and ylang ylang essential oils-- these oils are renowned to help balance an oily skin type. they also provides an uplifting and sensual aroma during use.
blue corn powder-- gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells, excess oils and dirt.
glycerin-- an effective moisturizer which helps improve softness and maximize hydration.
kaolin clay-- helps control shine. deeply cleanses, drawing out impurities from the skin, and is a mineral that helps to restore the skin's natural balance.
if you have an oilier skin type, obviously, this is perfect as a 1-2 time a week mask, but even if you have a more normal skin type, this is perfect as a 1-2 times a month mask.
it gives a cooling sensation when on the face that is quite soothing (love it after a long, hot day),and it's very important when you rinse to rub gently as the little granules will do the scrubbing for you.
for the past couple of years, my husband has loved to do this mask about once a month to really clean out his pores, and give his skin a "glow" (but don't tell him i told you!), and i love to do it weekly to help control oil and keep my skin clear.
