This charcoal Body Shop face mask sells every 15 seconds

Fancy trying a new beauty pick-me-up this weekend? If so, it’s worth paying a visit to The Body Shop. The brand, which is known for its commitment to cruelty-free products, has revealed that there’s one item in its range that flies out of its shops at an impressive rate of one every 15 seconds.

The Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask is one of the store’s bestsellers, thanks to its ability to refine and clarify tired or congested skin. Its formula is inspired by the tradition of Indian healing practice of Ayurveda, and infused with bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves and organic tea tree oil to heal and nourish your complexion.

The sales stat, as reported by Metro, is backed up by more than 450 glowing reviews on The Body Shop website, from shoppers who say that it’s one of the most effective products in their collection.

‘This is the best face mask I have ever used and I am prone to breakouts,’ one declared. ‘Leaves face feeling soft and fresh, can’t express my love enough for his product.’

‘This is unreal! This blew my face mask expectations out the water!’ another exclaimed. ‘My skin was glowing, radiant, spot and pore free the next day so far to the point where I got compliments which I almost never get!’ body shop face mask

Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask, £17, The Body Shop

The mask retails at £17, and according to those who know and love it already, a little goes a long way. ‘I purchased this mask at least 6 months ago and I have just finished my pot!’ an impressed purchaser reported. ‘It is certainly worth the price tag.’

The Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask isn’t the only Body Shop skincare buy to get customers seriously excited; a bottle of its Drops Of Youth Concentrate is purchased at every 23 seconds, and at £26, it’s said to be one of the most affordable – and effective – serums on the shelves.
