I still have a tube of Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask & i use it on times when i feel that my oil glands are out of control.
Spas are offering body mask services too,right? I think the concept is basically just the same with what i wrote on my post about mask. The only difference is that you;re paying a ridiculous amount of money for something that you can do at home.
Yes, you can do your own "body mask-ing" at home with the use of HBC's Body Recipe Spa Body Masque!
I have had this tub for quite sometime & i put off making a review of it for a couple of reasons. I'll tell you why later.
You can take a look at the ingredients here:
You'll also see how much this... Php 170 for a 200g of product.
I think it's not bad because it really works, plus the fact that this will last for a couple of use on which if you compare to having it at the spa, you would have to pay a lot more!
This is how it looks like...
A white kaolin clay mask that has this perfumed menthol scent.
Uh oh... i'm not a fan of products that has this weird scent. I would classify the scent of this as something that could give me a migraine with prolonged scent-sposure (scent exposure!haha).
I know the benefits of clay masks.
That's why i never run out of clay mask at home because i find it an instant skin remedy, so when i saw this at HBC before, i added on the things that i would like to try but i just wasn't able to check the scent.
Benefit-wise, this product does the job well.
There are sometimes when i just feel & smell so dirty especially when i spent my whole day outside. That would also be the time when i feel that no scrubbing, no matter how hard, would take away the lingering scent/dirt that i accumulated over the day. In times like this i reach for this & i would feel all those icky be absorbed by my body.
Now when you apply this on your body it would have this cooling sensation. It gets cooler the longer you leave it on your skin so this is also one of the reason why i can't use this as much as i want to especially now when it's quite cool. But this would be great for summer!
What i do is i take a bath first, do my scrubbing & everything then i towel-dry my skin then apply this on.
In spas, they would wrap your body parts in plastic. That would be so that your skin would absorb all the goodness of the clay & won't dry out on it's own. You can also do so if you want to but in my case i don't have to bother with it. Again, the cooling sensation gets stronger eventually so i just rinse it out when i can't abide the coolness of it.
So with that let's do a short summary...
- locally made & available in HBC stores
- affordable (Php 170 for 200g of product!)
- it works well in drawing out impurities
- has a cooling sensation!
- i don't like the scent
What i like about this is that you can easily know when to ditch it because the expiration date is clearly printed on the side!
Will i buy it?
If they'll be able to come up with a line that is scentless or smells way better than this i would!
Will i recommend it?
If you like trying home products like so instead of going to the spas than you have to give this a shot.
So, have you tried having a body mask?
How about trying out spa products meant for home use?
Hope you all are having a great day, ladies!
