The Body Shop Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask, review

Hello my lovely readers, a new weekend a new face mask to try. This time is The Body Shop Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask. Since the mask comes in a 75ml/3.0 oz jar so it’s quite expensive and big in size I decided to ask for a sachet to be sure the mask suits my skin before buying it full-size. I used it so it’s time to share with you my thoughts on it.


The Body Shop Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask is an indulgent, honey-textured moisturizing mask which nourishes and hydrates the skin. The skin is smoother and softer due to the mask’s ability to retain moisture, improve the skin’s elasticity and prevent its dryness. It contains Community Trade Honey from Ethiopia, Community Trade Marula Oil from Namibia and Community Trade Olive Oil from Italy. 100% vegan. No parabens, paraffin, silicones or mineral oil. thebodyshop_ethiopianhoneydeepnourishing_mask_beautyinfiveminutescom-2The full-size mask comes in a 75ml/3.0 oz jar, my sample contains 5.5 gr/0.19 0z of product that is intended for a lavish single use or two economical uses. I used it once to see its properties and effects at maximum.

Directions for use : After removing makeup and cleansing the skin, smooth an even layer of the Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask onto the face avoiding eye and lip area. Apply to neck and décolletage if desired. Leave for 5-10 minutes then rinse off with warm water and a muslin cloth in circular motions to gently exfoliate. Use 2 to 3 times a week.

The mask has a light, gel-like texture with a slight yellow-ish colour and honey scent. It is easy to apply on the skin with a brush or fingers. You can add a thin layer all over and build more in specific areas for a stronger effect.

It made me feel pampered and happy.

It is a great prep mask for a special occasion make-up look. It left my skin glowing and soft and my pores seem a little bit smaller. After this mask the foundation adhered beautifully to the skin and didn’t stick in the dry areas of the skin.

You can find The Body Shop Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask in all The Body Shop stores and online at at the price of  115 ron/28 dollars. I liked it very much, it left my skin nourished, soft and revived and ready for a new day. Is it worth the price? Well there is quite a large quantity of product in the jar – 75ml/3.0 oz  and it can last you for quite a long time. I advise you to try a sachet first to see how you get along with it, then buy the full size. I give it the -A grade (due to the high, not so very affordable price). Until next time,   Love, M
