The Body Shop Honey & Oat 3-in-1 mask claims to cleanse, polish and moisturize in one with oatmeal grains and community trade organic honey.It is meant for normal/dry skin.It is to be used once or twice a week.I bought it for just 13$ (for 100ml) from Rinku Town, Osaka on 70% discount.
The mask is gooey and soft in texture, spreads easily.Only a little product is required.It has chunky oat brans which looks like porridge to me!!
It smells of oatmeal and honey which I kinda like!!
The mask is to be applied to clean skin and to be left for 5-10 minutes.But I generally leave it on for 15-20 minutes(in the hope of better results).It stings a little when applied but the stinging goes after 5 minutes.The mask does not dry so there is no tight feeling.
It moisturises well.Infact my skin feels smooth, glowing and moisturised for next 2-3 days.But I am disappointed with the scrubbing particles as they are way too soft to perform any scrubbing at all!!So I generally exfoliate and then apply it as a moisture mask(my skin is oily but tends to go towards dry side during winters).
I have been using it for quite some time now, twice a week but I don’t see any reduction in my pores or pimple marks.It is just a good (but expensive) moisturizing mask which leaves the skin soft.Just don’t expect anything more!!
Will I purchase it again??Hell no!!I prefer investing in a high-end moisturizer instead!!

    Great review… appreciate your honest feedback! I recently signed up for Birchbox… it’s a great way to try out new products without committing to buying a full size product. Hope you’re having a nice weekend! 🙂

    Thanks for the honest reviews! I have been at both ends of the spectrum – trying higher end more expensive products and then also lower end inexpensive brands. I’m consistently more pleased with the products that cost less! I stick to an oil free daily moisturizer for combination skin and it works amazing….and it’s cheap, too! 🙂
