I must say, i've been really excited about writing this review. Anything with honey as a key ingredient in it gets an immediate thumbs up from me, as it's so relaxing and really works wonders on my skin.
I received The Body Shop's Honey & Oat 3-In-1 Scrub Mask as part of a gift set from my friends mother to say thank-you for house-sitting whilst they were away (Very generous!) - so here it is!
I've never really trusted multi-use products, as i've always felt that being a 'jack of all trades' has never been as effective as being an expert in one area, so I will admit I was slightly hesitant as to whether this scrub would deliver results in cleansing, polishing and moisturising as it promises. It uses Fair Trade honey, along with soft oats that enable the scrub to gently buff away dead skin cells, making it suitable for sensitive skin.
On first application, I was shocked at just how soft the scrub was. Usually large grains put me off of scrubs because I don't find the application enjoyable, but even the application of this product soothed me! It's very thick and luxurious, however its very easy to distribute and you only need a small amount of product to cover your entire face and neck. It is advised to leave on for 5-10 minutes, but I always feel you should leave it on for the maximum amount of time in order to achieve maximum results. When having a browse on other reviews for this product, it came to no surprise to find that this was infact a Body Shop best seller! It's amazingly gentle, smells gorgeous and if you apply whilst relaxing in the bath it almost feels like your receiving a luxurious spa treatment!
Overall, this has got to me my favourite scrub mask and most definitely my favourite Body Shop product, and all for a reasonable £10. I would definitely recommend this for someone who wants the perks of a scrub without the harshness of rough grains. It's a no-brainer for beauty lovers with sensitive skin!
