Recipes of Nature is a new range of 100% vegetarian face masks from The Body Shop. Formulated without parabens, paraffin, silicone or mineral oil, these masks are inspired from nature and three of them are actually 100% vegan. And what is interesting is that there is a mix and match concept to these masks. Based on your skin concern, you can apply a mask on that area. For example, if you have an oily T zone and dry forehead and cheeks, you can apply Himalayan Charcoal on the T zone and the British Rose or Ethiopian Honey on the dry areas.
Packed, crushed and drizzled with natural ingredients, each one has been expertly formulated with your skin’s needs in mind. Made with 100% vegetarian ingredients (our Himalayan Charcoal, British Rose and Amazonian Acai masks are actually 100% vegan) and formulated without parabens, paraffins, silicone or mineral oils – just our finest recipes packed with beauty superfoods from Himalayan charcoal to Amazonian acai berries. Inspired by traditional beauty remedies from around the world, each jar contains a secret power from purifying to nourishing to help your skin look and feel as good as you do inside.

I have two of these masks – Chinese Ginseng & Rice and Ethiopian Honey. I apply the Ethiopian Honey mask mostly on my dry forehead and cheeks. This mask has a creamy gel-like texture of real honey and smells of it too. To nourish the skin, it contains community trade honey, marula oil and organic olive oil. I like this mask a lot. Following TBS’s advice, I drizzle it into the palm of my hands and warm it slightly. The heat melts the concentrated honey, allowing it to spread easily across the skin. I leave it on for 10 mins and after washing off, the skin instantly feels so soft, smooth and nourished. If you have dry skin, you can give this a shot.
I use the Chinese Ginseng & Rice mask when my skin looks dull and I need to polish and brighten it up. This creamy, exfoliating mask combines ginseng and rice extracts from China and sesame seed oil from Nicaragua. The mask mildly exfoliates the skin and I like that it makes the skin smooth and even-toned without drying.
I really like these masks. The price, not so much. Rs 2495 for 75 ml is too much and I wish they were priced lower. But do these masks work? They do and you can see the effect instantly. Select a mask according to your skin type and if you don’t want to invest in the full-size product immediately, try a sample. They are available both online and at TBS stores.
What do you do while masking? I usually put on a mask before sitting in front of the laptop so it is masking and blogging together for me. Do share in the comments below along with which mask you want to try out 🙂
